Site Cookie Information
This site saves a "cookie"* called 'darkMode' on your computer to remember whether you want to use Dark Mode () or Light Mode (). If you turn on Dark Mode, it's set to "true"; if not, it's "false".
(* Technically, the site doesn't use "cookies" - it uses "localStorage" values, which are a separate technology that a lot of programmers consider more secure. Legally, though, they're treated the same way, and since most people just call everything a website automatically saves to your computer a "cookie," that's what I'm doing here.)
Q: Why can't I click a button to tell this site to remember not to save any cookies? Other sites can do that.
A: Actually, they can't! To be able to "remember" something about you, a website has to save that information on your computer. Every time you click one of those buttons telling a site "Don't save cookies about me," what you're basically doing is saving the word "no" in a cookie named "areCookiesOkay".
Q: Can you, the person running this website, see the cookie that the site saves? Is this website tracking me?
A: No. Only your own web browser can see it. I cannot look at a report somewhere to find out how many people look at this site and turn on Dark Mode. (Or, for that matter, how many people look at it at all - the site does not use any form of tracking.)
Q: Can I see what the cookie is doing?
I'm sorry, but most people think that's incredibly annoying.
Q: Instead of using localStorage, have you considered parsing URL queries and editing all the local links on the page every time the user switches modes?
