A ‘cookie’ is an item of data stored on the user’s device containing information about their use of a website. To the best of our knowledge, the only uses of cookies in public areas of Reality Box are as follows:
Comments – When commenting, we offer users a ‘remember’ option which, if selected, will save their details (e.g. name, email address) in cookies so they don’t have to re-enter them for future comments. Breaking News Bar – This allows you to close the breaking news bar and keep it closed.
However, our content management system may set cookies our staff are unaware of. We regularly monitor the site to check for such cookies and will take action if we find any.
If you do not want Reality Box to save such cookies to your device, most browsers will allow you to block them in their settings. However, if you do, you may not be able to access some features on Reality Box.
Reality Box uses scripts from third-party or external websites for certain features (e.g. Twitter, to display our follower count) which may set cookies to your device. We cannot be held responsible for cookies set by third party or external websites.
