The software which we use to run this site - dokuwiki - needs to use some cookies in order to function. You can read about those on their FAQ page. Blocking these will prevent the site functioning properly.
Our understanding is that unless you log into the wiki then no persistent cookies will be set, only a PHP session cookie which is cleared when you quit your browser. Simply browsing publicly accessible sites should not involve this server setting a persistent cookie.
It is possible that we will use third-party analytics services (eg. Google) to allow us to understand how people use some parts of the site. If we use these then we will list the namespaces involved below, and you should be free to block any cookies or scripts these services invoke without affecting access to the content of this site.
While standard server logs containing IP addresses and request details are kept on the machine which hosts this site these are only used for performance measurement and debugging. No further analytics are performed on them.
