Cookies set by other websites through this site

We want to provide interesting and engaging content on our website. On a number of pages we use 'plug ins' or embedded media. We use Share This, for example, to allow you to recommend a particular page to your friends and contacts using email or social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+1 or Linked In. Most video artworks are stored on vimeo.com and are embedded on the website.

The suppliers of these services may also set cookies on your device when you visit the pages where we have used this type of content. These are known as 'third-party' cookies. When we provide links to third party services you find useful, they may place a cookie on your device to make their service easier to use.

Share This

Our website uses a widget from ShareThis which facilitates the easy of sharing of pages and links from the Experiments and Intensities website across various social networks.

Many of our pages include a ShareThis button and widget, which allows you to share our content via email, Twitter, Facebook etc. These cookies enable that service to work smoothly:

  • stid is a random unique identifier and is used to associated users with topics of interest, based upon the content they consume and share. Expires after one year.
    uset is used to indicate when a user has been cookied so that the task is not repeated in the next 8 hours. Expires after 8 hours.
  • unam counts number of unique users that share content and how many page views are generated from the resulting share. Please note that the ShareThis service only personaly identifies you if you have separately signed up with ShareThis. Expires after 8 months.
  • UID, UIDR - are random unique identifiers. These cookies are used by ComScore (.scorecardresearch.com) a third party audience size measurement used by ShareThis. Expires after 2 years.

View ShareThis privacy policy or opt out if you wish.

Facebook, Twitter and other social networks

These services provide social buttons and similar features which we use on our website – such as the "Like" and "Tweet" buttons.

To do so we embed code that they provide and we do not control ourselves. To function their buttons generally know if you’re logged in; for example Facebook use this to say "x of your friends like this". We do not have any access to that information, nor can we control how those networks use it.

Social networks therefore could know that you're viewing this website, if you use their services (that isn’t to say they do, but their policies may change). As our website is remarkably inoffensive we imagine this is not a concern for most users.
