We use cookies for three purposes:

  1. We use cookies to test changes to the application and track the extent to which users seem to prefer them, in a process called AB Testing. 
  2. We track usage of the application using Google Analytics, and Google Analytics uses cookies. Tracking usage of the application helps us to better understand how people are using the site, which in turn enables us to make more target improvements.
  3. For users of the free version of the application, we use Google Adsense to recoup the costs of providing the service and Google Adsense uses cookies. Although not everyone like advertising, it does enable us to continue to provide the service for free. Cookies help Google to ensure the adverts that you do see are more likely to be relevant to your interests. Users of the premium version of the application won't see advertisements or receive advertisement-related cookies.
