These are some of the primary information sources that I looked at for help in writing this page.

What cookies do you use on your website?
On our website www.spectrumadventures.com we use just one ‘non-tracking’ cookie.
This cookie has only one function; to keep you logged in as you move around the website so that you can access subscriber-only content.

If you choose to subscribe to a paid membership, you will interact with an online payment processor.
Our website www.ourspectrumadventures.com uses Stripe as our online payment processor.
What about Stripe's cookies when joining a membership?
You will be subject to Stripe's Cookies when paying for a paid membership. Unfortunately, this is something that we have no control over, as when the payment is made you will be interacting with Stripe on their website.
This a good thing... because Stripe's website is more secure than ours, after all, they are an online payment processor!
