What they are

Cookies are small data files that are issued to your device when you visit a website and that store information about your use of a service.

Why we use them

TolkienGuide uses cookies and these other technologies to help recognize you as a repeat visitor and, to improve the quality of our Services.

How they work

When you visit TolkienGuide, our web server sends a cookie to your device, which allows us to recognize your device (but not the specific person using it). By associating the identification numbers in the cookies with other account information when, for example, you log in to our Services, we know that the cookie information relates to your user account. Most of the cookies used by our Services are served by us, and some are served by Google Analytics, who are delivering services on our behalf.

Examples of the types of cookies used by TolkienGuide:

Authentication

TolkienGuide uses authentication cookies to tell us when you're logged in to TolkienGuide. This lets us show you personalized views related to your interactions with the site - marking conversations as unread or read for example, and any private messages that have been sent to your account.

Security

Cookies also help keep TolkienGuide secure by facilitating security features and allowing us to detect activity that might violate our rules and Terms of Use. These cookies help protect your account from being accessed by anyone other than you.

Site features and services

TolkienGuide uses cookies that provide functionality and help us deliver our products and services - for instance, by storing your viewing preferences.

Analytics and research

Cookies and other technologies also help us to understand, improve, and research features and content on the TolkienGuide site. For example, we may use cookies to understand how you are discovering TolkienGuide or to determine which types of browsers or devices are accessing TolkienGuide. You can opt-out of being included in Google Analytics here.

Cookie Control

If you block cookies via your browser settings, you will not be able to log in to TolkienGuide or post on the site.

Our Do Not Track Policy

Some browsers have "do not track" features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals.
