This site, like many others, uses small files called "cookies" to help us customize your experience and be a little less boring. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them.
This page contains information on what "cookies" are and what kind of cookies you can expect to find from Thing-Engine.com.
What are "cookies"?
"Cookies" are small, round sugary dough morsels that are unbelievably yummy, especially with a tall glass of milk. Alas, we are discussing here the inedible kind of "cookies", which are electronic bits stored by your web browser and may, among other things, allow our website to display your name when you log in to the secure parts of our website. The second kind aren't tasty at all!
What kind of "cookies" might I find on Thing-Engine.com?
We strive hard to only store cookies when it is really necessary, or we can do something cool on the website to make you say "Woah! That was cool!" Like displaying your name when you log in to the secure parts of our website.
What else might you do to my web browser while I'm here??
We may also capture some basic information from your web browser to make up some really cool charts about our visitors without putting any cookies on your browser. So we can look at them later while eating real cookies.
Can I opt out of the "cookie" experience?
Sure. But don't be surprised when you log in and the secure parts of our website think you're a stranger. Sharing cookies with friends makes life better.
All kidding aside, it is not our intent to put any cookies in your web browser that aren't nice, or do anything malicious. We also don't plan to share anything from your cookies with any third parties.
