How does Antidote use cookies?

We use cookies in a number of ways:

  2. To monitor our website’s performance and to help us enhance usability, we collect information on usage patterns using our own and 3rd party analytics software. This includes tracking things like which pages are visited on our site, the sequence in which people explore the site and how long is spent on each page.
  3. To tailor aspects of the site based on your previous usage patterns and information relating to your location. This includes remembering that you have selected a certain language preference - or setting it automatically because you appear to be based in certain location.
  4. To offer certain functionality that is provided by 3rd party sites such as social sharing and authentication (e.g. Facebook logins).
