Functional cookies

Not all cookies are evil and I need some to make my website work correctly and provide security. For these reasons, you may see the following functional cookies in your browser's local storage:

  • XSRF-TOKEN: A unique key that ensures any form submissions have originated from my website. This cookie does not track you in any way.

  • stuartcusackie_session: This Laravel cookie allows me to share error messages and responses between pages. It cannot be connected to any of your personal data and it is discarded as soon as you close my website on your internet browser.

  • __cfduid: Helps Cloudflare detect malicious visitors to my website and minimises the blocking of legitimate users. This cookie does not track your movements between sites and there is no way for me to match this cookie to any of your personal data.


I only use Umami analytics - a self-hosted, privacy-focused analytics package for completely anonymous collection of website interactions. Umami does not collect any personal data or IP addresses.
