Wordfence is a plugin that helps us protect the site. It uses cookies for three tasks:

  • To uniquely identify visitors shown in Wordfence Live traffic.
  • To track a user who was previously logged into WordPress but has logged out to ensure that Falcon cache does not show that user cached pages.
  • If a user has visited a unique page that allows them to bypass country blocking a cookie is set to identify that user so that country blocking does not prevent them from viewing the site.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
