Accessing certain posts or pages on this website may require you to enter a specific password. If you correctly enter the password, the site saves this cookie on your device to allow you access to the password-protected post or page. The cookie normally expires in about 10 days and is not set at all if you do not access any password-protected content. (For this cookie, "xx" will be a cryptographic hash.)

Commenting

When you submit a comment, you may have the option save your information for future comments, storing the info in these cookies. The cookies are not set at all unless you select that option when submitting a comment. They normally expire in just under one year, but you can delete the cookies in your browser at any time. (For each of these cookies, "xx" will be a cryptographic hash.)

Privacy and Cookie Preferences

These cookies manage your cookie and privacy preferences. There will typically be several such cookies, each beginning with "gdpr" (e.g., gdpr[allowed_cookies], gdpr&5Bprivacy_bar&5D, and gdpr[consent_types]). They normally expire after about one year. If you delete or disable these cookies, your existing preferences will be lost and you may not be able to save your privacy settings for this website.

Google Analytics

These first-party cookies enable Google Analytics to gather information about visitors and how they use the Ate Up With Motor website. The cookieconsent_status cookie records whether or not you've consented to analytics tracking and tells the website to hide the notification banner; the cookie normally expires after about one year. The _ga and _gid cookies, which are only placed if you click "Accept/Enable" in the notification banner, are used by Google Analytics to track your activity on the site. They may persist for up to two years. (The _gat cookie, which may appear as _gat_gtag_UA_6113964_2, is not always set; it is a short-lived "throttling" cookie used to control how frequently requests are sent to the Google Analytics server.)

The "Online Tracking" section of the Privacy Policy offers more information about how the analytics service works and describes some ways you can opt out of analytics tracking, including a Google-supplied browser add-on. If you clicked "Disable Tracking" on the notification banner that appeared near the top of your screen when you arrived, you've already opted out of Google Analytics tracking by Ate Up With Motor! (Google Analytics is a trademark of Google LLC; Google is a registered trademark of Google LLC.)

Google Analytics Opt-Out

This cookie is set when you click the Disable Google Analytics Tracking link. If you set the cookie, Google Analytics will no longer track your use of the Ate Up With Motor website, even if you previously consented to analytics tracking. (Please note that this cookie affects only your current device/browser; works ONLY on the Ate Up With Motor website, not on other websites or online services using Google Analytics; and cannot prevent our third-party content providers from using Google Analytics in connection with content such as embedded video players.) The opt-out cookie normally remains on your device for as long as your browser settings permit. (Google Analytics is a trademark of Google LLC; Google is a registered trademark of Google LLC.)

Accessibility Settings

If you change certain aspects of the site's appearance using the accessibility sidebar, it may set these cookies to manage and remember your settings. The wahFontColor and wahBgColor cookies, which are set if you alter the site's color scheme, normally expire after about 14 days, but you can remove them immediately by clicking the "Restore Defaults" button on the sidebar.

We may sometimes present an alternative version of the sidebar offering different options, which may set the a11y-desaturated, a11y-high-contrast, and a11y-larger-fontsize cookies if you change those settings. These a11y cookies normally expire after about seven days, but are removed immediately if you restore the applicable settings to their default values.

PayPal® Button

The payment button in the "Support Ate Up With Motor" box (and similar payment or donation buttons that may appear on portions of the administrative dashboard, which is not normally accessible except to logged-in administrative users) contains embedded content served by PayPal®. If the payment button is visible, it may set the third-party cookies PYPF (via paypalobjects.com), which appears to check whether or not you are a logged-in PayPal user and is probably used to facilitate the PayPal user login process, and/or 01A1 (via abmr.net), which stores certain technical information about your device and browser, probably to facilitate the login and shopping cart functions. The PYPF cookie normally expires in approximately four weeks, the 01A1 cookie in approximately one year.

If you use the buttons to make a payment or donation, PayPal sets additional cookies (not listed here) to manage your PayPal login and transaction data (and potentially also for various other purposes, such as user analytics and/or advertising). For more information on what data PayPal collects and what they do with it, visit their Legal Agreements for PayPal Services page to review the PayPal Privacy Statement and Statement on Cookies and Tracking Technologies that apply in your location. (PayPal is a registered trademark of PayPal, Inc. All button icons, custom graphics, logos, page headers, and scripts related to the PayPal services are service marks, trademarks, and/or trade dress of PayPal or PayPal's licensors.)

You can hide the "Support Ate Up With Motor" box and prevent the loading of its embedded content by switching this category to "OFF" (which you can always do by going to the Privacy Tools page, clicking "Access Your Privacy and Cookie Preferences," and selecting the appropriate category). At present, turning off this setting does NOT affect the donation or payment buttons that may appear on portions of the back-end administrative dashboard, which are not visible to non-logged-in users. Also, please note that turning off this setting does NOT affect any cookies that may have already been set!

YouTube Videos

These third-party cookies may be set by YouTube (which is now owned by Google, superseding the now-defunct Google Video hosting service) in connection with embedded videos, for purposes such as (without limitation) managing video settings (such as tailoring the playback to your connection speed), storing video preferences, providing certain functionality such as allowing you to stop and restart a video without losing your place, showing you advertisements, associating your video viewing and other activity with your Google account (if any), ensuring proper functioning of the service, and/or compiling user analytics data. The cookies may be set by various domains, including (but not necessarily limited to) youtube.com, youtube-nocookie.com, googlevideo.com, ytimg.com, google.com, accounts.google.com, and/or doubleclick.net (which is part of the DoubleClick advertising service). Some are session cookies that expire when you close your browser; others may remain on your device as long as your browser settings permit. Some cookies Google sets in connection with your Google account and/or advertising served through YouTube (which may include others not listed here) are persistent cookies that may remain in your browser for as long as your individual browser settings permit. See Google's "Types of Cookies Used by Google" page for more information about the functions of their various cookies. To learn more about how Google uses the information they collect, see the Google Privacy Policy. (YouTube, Google Videos, and DoubleClick are trademarks of Google LLC.

Vimeo Videos

These third-party cookies may be set by Vimeo in connection with embedded videos, for purposes such as (without limitation) managing video settings, storing video preferences, providing certain functionality (such as allowing you to pause a video at a particular point), associating your video viewing and other activity with your Vimeo account (if you have one), showing you advertising, and/or compiling user analytics data. The cookies whose names begin with "_ga" and "_ut" are associated with Google Analytics (which is subject to the Google Privacy Policy); the ones whose names begin with "_ceg" are associated with the Crazy Egg web analytics service (which is subject to the Crazy Egg Privacy Policy); the ones that begin with "optimizely" are associated with the Optimizely digital experience optimization service (which is subject to the Optimizely Privacy Policy); and the ones beginning with "adsense" or listed in all caps are associated with Google AdSense and/or other Google advertising services (which are also subject to the Google Privacy Policy). The Vimeo Cookie Policy does not currently disclose the normal durations of their cookies, but some are persistent cookies that may remain in your browser for as long as your individual browser settings permit; some Google Analytics cookies can persist for up to two years. For more information about how Vimeo uses the information they collect, see the Vimeo Privacy Policy. (Vimeo is a trademark of Vimeo, Inc.

Administrative and Login Cookies

These functionality cookies are used to manage user logins and other WordPress administrative functions, such as post editing. If you are not an administrative user, they shouldn't normally be placed on your device at all unless you somehow access the login area, which is off-limits to non-administrators.

Accessing the login page places the wordpress_test_cookie (a session cookie that tests whether your browser will allow the cookies needed to log in and expires when you close your browser) and the itsec-hb-login-xx cookie (which expires after about one hour and helps protect the site against "brute force" attempts to hack user passwords).

Logging in sets the wordpress_logged_in_xx, wordpress_sec_xx, and/or wordpress_xx cookies, which store your user login credentials to allow access to the administrative dashboard and other administrative functions; these cookies expire in about 15 days if you click "Remember Me" when logging in, but if you don't, they normally expire when you close your browser (or, failing that, within about two days). The wp-settings-UID cookies store a logged-in user's configuration settings, while the wp-settings-time-UID cookies store the time the configuration settings were set; these cookies normally expire after about one year. One or more wp-saving-post cookies may be placed while creating and/or editing posts or pages, to help manage version control and the autosave feature; these cookies normally expire after about 24 hours. The wp-donottrack_feed cookie, which controls a blog feed, may be set by accessing the dashboard menu for the WP DoNotTrack plugin (if we currently have that plugin enabled); this cookie normally expires in about one year.

For all of these administrative and login cookies, the "xx" will be a cryptographic hash while "UID" will be the administrative user's user ID number in this website's WordPress database. (WordPress is a registered trademark of the WordPress Foundation.)
