Stratford on Avon Gliding Club does not use cookies for the purpose of tracking visitors over time. This site uses WordPress. If you choose to log-in to the website, the following cookies are set by the WordPress software:

On login, wordpress uses the wordpress_[hash] cookie to store your authentication details. Its use is limited to the admin console area, /wp-admin/

After login, wordpress sets the wordpress_logged_in_[hash] cookie, which indicates when you’re logged in, and who you are, for most interface use.

WordPress also sets a few wp-settings-{time}-[UID] cookies. The number on the end is your individual user ID from the users database table. This is used to customize your view of admin interface, and possibly also the main site interface.

Stratford on Avon Gliding Club implies consent for setting these cookies if you choose to log-in. It is not necessary to log-in to use the majority of the content on this site.

We recommend that you consult the privacy policies and / or cookie policies of the third party websites for more information.
