The Cookies We Set
Analytics are used to track and measure usage of this site so that we can continue to produce engaging content. These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site or pages you visit which helps us to understand how we can improve the site for you. We store all our analytics data on our own servers, and do not use third party analytics services.
Third Party Cookies
This website includes ads served by Google AdSense, along with their third party advertising networks. Cookies are stored on your computer as a result of this.

Privacy within the Mandelbrot Explorer application
Mandelbrot Explorer contains a feature that allows it to contact this website to report the version it is using. All data sent in this way is anonymous, and cannot be traced back to you. By using the software, you agree to this feature being used. We use this process to maintain an understanding of how many active users there are for different versions of the software, so we can appropriately support older versions. We also use it to notify you if there is an updated version of the software, to help you keep up to date, but you can turn off those notifications within the application if you wish.
Hopefully that has clarified things for you and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren't sure whether you need or not it's usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site. However if you are still looking for more information then you can contact us by email.
