Lynx Blog cookies

The Lynx Blog is built on WordPress. Viewing blog entries does not cause any cookies to be stored on your computer, but if you add a comment, 3 cookies will be saved storing your name, email and URL (ie, the information that you explicitly typed in). These cookies are purely a convenience, so that you will not have to re-type this information when leaving another comment.

These cookies are set to expire in 1 year, and are named as follows:

  • comment_author_*
  • comment_author_email_*
  • comment_author_url_*
