When you visit Glue Up websites and services – as an administrator, member, or visitor – cookies may be placed on your computer or a device you are using by Glue Up or a third party. A sample list of cookies placed by Glue Up appears below.
What Is A Cookie?
A cookie is a chunk of data – typically stored as a text file – that is placed on your computer or other devices when you visit a particular website. The cookie is used to identify your device to the website when you visit again so the site can load your preferences, automatically accept your credentials, or otherwise personalize the experience. Cookies do not store personal information about you, just information identifying your device.
Within your browser settings, you can choose whether to accept cookies. To access Glue Up sites and services as an administrator, member, or visitor, you need to enable cookies (which most browsers do by default).
You can also separately control whether to accept third-party cookies – cookies placed by third-party services that are integrated into the website you are visiting.
For example, third-party cookies are used by Google Analytics for tracking website traffic, and by Glue Up to embed its functionality on non-Glue Up sites using widgets. You only need to enable third-party cookies if you are using third-party services that require you to do so.
By default, Safari blocks third-party cookies, while Firefox and Chrome accept them. Internet Explorer blocks third-party cookies by default but allows users to accept them from Glue Up and other sites. Some firewalls or browser plug-ins may affect your browser's cookies settings.

If you are embedding Glue Up functionality on another site using widgets, a technical cookie may be saved to your visitors’ computers or devices if third-party cookies are disabled in the browser.
