Purpose:Recognises users and provides secure log-in to our website and associated systems. This is mainly used by our staff and contributors.
Purpose:This is for security and set by the proxy firewall that we use called Cloudflare. It identifies individual visitors behind a shared IP address and apply security settings on a per-client basis. For example, if a visitor is in a coffee shop where there may be several infected machines, but the specific visitor’s machine is trusted (for example, because they completed a challenge within your Challenge Passage period), the cookie allows Cloudflare to identify that client and not challenge them again. It does not correspond to any user ID in your web application, and does not store any personally identifiable information. For more information on this Cloudflare cookie, visit
