Cookies

We use Cookies to improve our website and make it more accessible to you.

What are cookies?

The moment you visit a website, that website stores cookies into your browser. These are .txt files that perform specific functions, depending on their type.

Some cookies are necessary for the website to function properly. For example, if you log into a WordPress website, that website will store temporary cookies on your browser that support the log-in function.

Other cookies are not necessary, as they are not tied to the website’s core functionalities. Instead, they perform various functions like track the time you remain on the website or store your login information so you don’t have to remember it yourself. These cookies may remain in your browser from a session, to a few hours, to indefinitely depending on their type.

How can I refuse the use of cookies?

You can refuse the use of non-necessary cookies at any time through the cookie and privacy policy pop-up and bar you can access from the respective button on the bottom right corner of your screen.

The first time you accept/refuse the non-necessary cookies, the pop-up will disappear but a button that can access it remains on the bottom part of the page, called “cookies & privacy policy”. By clicking it you gain access to the pop-up where you can change your preferences.

How can I erase cookies from my browser?

You can easily erase the cookies that have been stored on your browser by our or any other website. Find more information for the browser you are using:

Which Cookies does laconoliveoil.com use?

Necessary cookies:

WPML Cookies

WPML is a plugin that allows us to create and maintain a multilingual website. It stores only those cookies that are important for it to function properly. The following is the list of all cookies stored by WPML:

_icl_current_language – Stores the current language

_icl_current_admin_language_{hash} – Stores the current WordPress administration area language.

_icl_visitor_lang_js – Stores the redirected language.

wpml_browser_redirect_test – Tests if cookies are enabled.

wpml_referer_url – Stores the last requested URL on the front-end.

wpml_admin_referer_url – Stores the last requested URL on the back-end.

Read WPML’s Privacy Policy and GDPR Compliance page for more information about the cookies they use on wpml.org and how they handle and protect your data.

WordPress Cookies

Our website, laconoliveoil.com, is built on WordPress. WordPress uses cookies for logged in users and for commenters.

The actual cookies contain hashed data, so you don’t have to worry about someone gleaning your username and password by reading the cookie data. A hash is the result of a specific mathematical formula applied to some input data (in this case your username and password, respectively). It’s quite hard to reverse a hash (bordering on practical infeasibility with today’s computers). This means it is very difficult to take a hash and “unhash” it to find the original input data.

WordPress uses the two cookies to bypass the password entry portion of wp-login.php. If WordPress recognizes that you have valid, non-expired cookies, you go directly to the WordPress Administration interface. If you don’t have the cookies, or they’re expired, or in some other way invalid (like you edited them manually for some reason), WordPress will require you to log in again, in order to obtain new cookies.

Users

wordpress_[hash]: This cookie stores your authentication details. Its use is limited to the admin console area, /wp-admin/.

wordpress_logged_in_{hash}: Used by WordPress to authenticate logged-in visitors, password authentication and user verification.

wordpress_test_cookie: Used by WordPress to ensure cookies are working correctly.

wp-settings-[UID]: WordPress sets a few wp-settings-[UID] cookies. The number on the end is your individual user ID from the users database table. This is used to customize your view of admin interface, and possibly also the main site interface.

wp-settings-time-{time}-[UID]: WordPress also sets a few wp-settings-{time}-[UID] cookies. The number on the end is your individual user ID from the users database table. This is used to customize your view of admin interface, and possibly also the main site interface.

Commenters

When visitors comment on your blog, they too get cookies stored on their computer. This is purely a convenience, so that the visitor won’t need to re-type all their information again when they want to leave another comment. Three cookies are set for commenters:

comment_author_{HASH}
comment_author_email_{HASH}
comment_author_url_{HASH}
The commenter cookies are set to expire a little under one year from the time they’re set.
