Cookie Notice

As indicated in the “Cookies and Similar Technologies” section of the Privacy Policy, the 6200 Productions website and/or its embedded content providers may use cookies and/or similar technologies for a variety of purposes.

This Cookie Notice, which forms part of the Privacy Policy and uses the same Definitions, describes the specific cookies that are typically used on the 6200 Productions website. This notice also constitutes the “cookie policy” for this website, for jurisdictions that explicitly require such a policy. (This notice does NOT attempt to list or describe cookies used by third-party websites and/or services outside of the 6200 Productions website (e.g., cookies that may be set when you register with or log into a third-party service). The use of cookies and/or similar technologies by third-party websites and/or services is subject to the applicable site or service’s privacy policy and/or cookie policy, and in most cases is outside of our control.)

We may update this notice from time to time to add or remove cookies or categories of cookies and/or to clarify or amend the descriptions. (We may also periodically reorder the contents for easier reference.) This version was last updated Monday, August 3, 2020.


(Note: Because portions of the Privacy Policy were adapted from the Automattic Inc. Privacy Policy (which you can also find at their Legalmattic repository) under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license, this Cookie Notice, like the Privacy Policy of which it is a part, is offered under the same license. The “Recent Revisions” section of the Privacy Policy will also note changes to this Cookie Notice.

Cookies and Other Technologies

A cookie is a small text file — a string of information — that a website or online service places (or “sets” — these terms are used synonymously) on your browser or device and that your browser or device then provides to that site or service when you access it. (It is sometimes also possible for a website or service to detect cookies set by other sites/services.)

Cookies may be used in many different ways, but the most common uses are to save your settings or preferences, to manage logins, and to help identify specific users or devices for analytics and/or advertising purposes. Most cookies are specific to each browser and device; if you access a website from multiple browsers and/or multiple devices, the website may place cookies on each browser on each device. A cookie set by the website or service you are currently visiting is called a “first-party” cookie while cookies set by other services or domains (e.g., the cookies set when you access an embedded video player) are known as “third-party” cookies. You can learn more about how cookies work and how you can manage or delete them on different browsers by visiting AboutCookies.org. (We are not affiliated in any way with that website, which is run by the law firm Pinset Masons LLP, and offer this link purely for your information.)

Some websites and/or online services may also use similar technologies, such as storing certain information in your browser’s local storage and/or plugins; local storage information and so-called “local storage objects” aren’t cookies in the usual sense, but they may perform similar functions and may be used instead of or in addition to cookies. Such technologies are often used to manage functional details such as settings and preferences, but are sometimes also used to help the service to identify you. Online services may also use “web beacons,” which are small code blocks or tiny image files (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “pixel tags”) that transmit certain information about you and your user agent (as defined in the “Definitions” section of the Privacy Policy) to the service from which the web beacon is loaded. Web beacons (which are a form of embedded content, a term also explained in the in the “Definitions” section of the Privacy Policy) are sometimes also used instead of or in conjunction with cookies to identify users and track their behavior online.

How This Website Uses Cookies and Other Technologies

In general, this website sets cookies and/or stores information on your browser in circumstances where we need to identify a specific device and/or store visitor choices/preferences, including certain accessibility settings and privacy choices like your acceptance of this Privacy Policy and whether or not you have consented to analytics tracking (which also involves the use of cookies — see the “Online Tracking” section of the Privacy Policy to learn more). The use of cookies also allows us to determine which content to show you (e.g., whether to display or hide banners intended for first-time visitors), and to help ensure that administrative areas of the site are not accessible to unauthorized visitors. Certain other site functions and/or site content may require the use of cookies and/or similar technologies to function properly.

If you visit some portion of the website that contains third-party embedded content (as described in the “Embedded Content” section of the Privacy Policy), that content may also place cookies on your device.

Although some cookies are necessary or cannot currently be disabled for technical reasons, you may have the option to disable certain types of cookies by category. To review your available choices, click the “Access Your Privacy and Cookie Preferences” button below and review the summaries under “Cookie Settings”:

(You can also access this button via the Privacy Tools page.)

You are free to use your browser and/or browser add-ons to block or remove any cookies set by the 6200 Productions website or its embedded content providers. However, please note that some site features and/or site content may not function without cookies. For example, you may not be able to hide the notification banners or change certain accessibility settings, and previously saved preferences may be lost. (Again, if you use multiple devices or browsers, deleting or blocking cookies on one browser does not usually affect cookies on the others.)

Categories of Cookies Used

Below are descriptions of the cookies that may be used on this website. Not all of these cookies are necessarily set for all visitors — some cookies are only placed when you perform certain actions, and the cookies set by embedded content providers may vary. The categories below list cookies we know the specified content providers have used in at least some instances, but some cookies may be set only in certain circumstances, providers may periodically add new cookies not listed and/or retire ones specified here, and content providers not currently listed below might begin using cookies in connection with their embedded content (and/or may already do so in circumstances we have not yet recognized), all of which is outside of our control. (The “Embedded Content” section of the Privacy Policy includes a list of many — though not necessarily all — of the embedded content providers we most commonly use on this website, along with links to their respective privacy policies.) Additionally, certain portions of the website’s administrative dashboard (which is not normally accessible except to logged-in administrative users) might sometimes set additional cookies not included in this list, especially if we have just added or are testing some new plugin or other site component.

Some of the cookies set by this website or its embedded content providers are “session cookies” that expire (cease to function) when you close your browser. Others are “persistent cookies” that remain on your device and expire after a certain amount of time, such as 30 days or one year. Certain cookies will persist for as long as your browser permits unless you manually delete them.

The durations described below are the normal durations of these cookies. (They are approximate because while the duration of a persistent cookie is theoretically very precise, variations in time zone settings, clock accuracy, and/or the time of day when the cookie is set can sometimes cause the cookie to remain or appear to remain for somewhat more or less time than its nominal duration.) You should keep in mind that your actions or choices on this website (such as changing or updating your accessibility settings) may set additional cookies, change the duration of current ones, or remove certain cookies entirely. Also, your individual browser settings may affect how long cookies remain on your device/browser. For example, if your browser is set to automatically clear your browsing history each time you close the browser, doing so may remove all saved cookies, regardless of their normal duration.

As noted above, you can also review this information and/or fine-tune your available choices by going to the Privacy Tools page and clicking “Access Your Privacy and Cookie Preferences.” Please note that while the cookie descriptions presented in this Cookie Notice and the ones listed in the Cookie Settings menu accessed through the “Access Your Privacy and Cookie Preferences” button are intended to be identical (save for minor variations in formatting and text style), in the event of any substantive discrepancy between those versions, the Cookie Notice version(s) below shall govern.

Privacy and Cookie Preferences

Cookies used:

gdpr, gdpr[allowed_cookies], gdpr&5Bprivacy_bar&5D, gdpr[consent_types]

How they are used:

These cookies manage your cookie and privacy preferences. There will typically be several such cookies, each beginning with “gdpr” (e.g., gdpr[allowed_cookies], gdpr&5Bprivacy_bar&5D, and gdpr[consent_types]). They normally expire after about one year. If you delete or disable these cookies, your existing preferences will be lost and you may not be able to save your privacy settings for this website.

Google Analytics

Cookies used:

cookieconsent_status, _ga, _gid, _gat, _gat_gtag_UA_6113964_4

How they are used:

These first-party cookies enable Google Analytics to gather information about visitors and how they use the 6200 Productions website. The cookieconsent_status cookie records whether or not you’ve consented to analytics tracking and tells the website to hide the notification banner; the cookie normally expires after about one year. The _ga and _gid cookies, which are only placed if you click “Accept/Enable” in the notification banner, are used by Google Analytics to track your activity on the site. They may persist for up to two years. (The _gat cookie, which may appear as _gat_gtag_UA_6113964_4, is not always set; it is a short-lived “throttling” cookie used to control how frequently requests are sent to the Google Analytics server.)

The “Online Tracking” section of the Privacy Policy offers more information about how the analytics service works and describes some ways you can opt out of analytics tracking, including a Google-supplied browser add-on. If you clicked “Disable Tracking” on the notification banner that appeared near the top of your screen when you arrived, you’ve already opted out of Google Analytics tracking by 6200 Productions! (Google Analytics is a trademark of Google LLC; Google is a registered trademark of Google LLC.)

Google Analytics Opt-Out

Cookies used:

ga-disable-UA-6113964-4

How they are used:

This cookie is set when you click the Disable Google Analytics Tracking link. If you set the cookie, Google Analytics will no longer track your use of the 6200 Productions website, even if you previously consented to analytics tracking. (Please note that this cookie affects only your current device/browser; works ONLY on the 6200 Productions website, not on other websites or online services using Google Analytics; and cannot prevent our third-party content providers from using Google Analytics in connection with content such as embedded video players.) The opt-out cookie normally remains on your device for as long as your browser settings permit. (Google Analytics is a trademark of Google LLC; Google is a registered trademark of Google LLC.)

Password-Protected Posts

Cookies used:

wp_postpass_xx

How they are used:

Accessing certain posts or pages on this website may require you to enter a specific password. If you correctly enter the password, the site saves this cookie on your device to allow you access to the password-protected post or page. The cookie normally expires in about 10 days and is not set at all if you do not access any password-protected content. (For this cookie, “xx” will be a cryptographic hash.)

Commenting

Cookies used:

comment_author_xx, comment_author_email_xx, comment_author_url_xx

How they are used:

When you submit a comment, you may have the option save your information for future comments, storing the info in these cookies. The cookies are not set at all unless you select that option when submitting a comment. They normally expire in just under one year, but you can delete the cookies in your browser at any time. (For each of these cookies, “xx” will be a cryptographic hash.)

Accessibility Settings

Cookies used:

wahFontColor, wahBgColor, a11y-desaturated, a11y-high-contrast, a11y-larger-fontsize

How they are used:

If you change certain aspects of the site’s appearance using the accessibility sidebar, it may set these cookies to manage and remember your settings. The wahFontColor and wahBgColor cookies, which are set if you alter the site’s color scheme, normally expire after about 14 days, but you can remove them immediately by clicking the “Restore Defaults” button on the sidebar.

We may sometimes present an alternative version of the sidebar offering different options, which may set the a11y-desaturated, a11y-high-contrast, and a11y-larger-fontsize cookies if you change those settings. These a11y cookies normally expire after about seven days, but are removed immediately if you restore the applicable settings to their default values.

YouTube Videos

Cookies used:

yt.innertube::nextId, yt.innertube::requests, yt-remote-cast-installed, yt-remote-connected-devices, yt-remote-device-id, yt-remote-fast-check-period, yt-remote-session-app, yt-remote-session-name, recently_watched_video_id_list, use_hotbox, demographics, GPS, LOGIN_INFO, PREF, VISITOR_INFO1_LIVE, YSC, AID, ANID, APISID, CONSENT, DSID, FLC, GAPS, IDE, NID, HSID, OTZ, SID, SNID, SIDCC, TAID, exchange_uid, 1P_JAR

How they are used:

These third-party cookies may be set by YouTube (which is now owned by Google, superseding the now-defunct Google Video hosting service) in connection with embedded videos, for purposes such as (without limitation) managing video settings (such as tailoring the playback to your connection speed), storing video preferences, providing certain functionality such as allowing you to stop and restart a video without losing your place, showing you advertisements, associating your video viewing and other activity with your Google account (if any), ensuring proper functioning of the service, and/or compiling user analytics data. The cookies may be set by various domains, including (but not necessarily limited to) youtube.com, youtube-nocookie.com, googlevideo.com, ytimg.com, google.com, accounts.google.com, and/or doubleclick.net (which is part of the DoubleClick advertising service). Some are session cookies that expire when you close your browser; others may remain on your device as long as your browser settings permit. Some cookies Google sets in connection with your Google account and/or advertising served through YouTube (which may include others not listed here) are persistent cookies that may remain in your browser for as long as your individual browser settings permit. See Google’s “Types of Cookies Used by Google” page for more information about the functions of their various cookies. To learn more about how Google uses the information they collect, see the Google Privacy Policy. (YouTube, Google Videos, and DoubleClick are trademarks of Google LLC.

Vimeo Videos

Cookies used:

_abexps, aka_debug, clips, continuous_play_v3, embed_preferences, has_logged_in, is_logged_in, jsessionID, player, search_click_position, Searchtoken, stats_end_date, stats_start_date, sst_aid, uid, v6f, vimeo, vuid, _ga, _gads, _utma, _utmb, _utmc, _utmv, _utmz,_ceg.s, _ceg.u, optimizelyBuckets, optimizelyEndUserId, optimizelySegments, adsense, adsenseReferralSourceId, adsenseReferralSubId, adsenseReferralUrl, adsenseReferralUrlQuery, S_adsense, APISID, GAPS, HSID, NID, N_T, PREF, SAPISID, SID, SNID, SSID

How they are used:

These third-party cookies may be set by Vimeo in connection with embedded videos, for purposes such as (without limitation) managing video settings, storing video preferences, providing certain functionality (such as allowing you to pause a video at a particular point), associating your video viewing and other activity with your Vimeo account (if you have one), showing you advertising, and/or compiling user analytics data. The cookies whose names begin with “_ga” and “_ut” are associated with Google Analytics (which is subject to the Google Privacy Policy); the ones whose names begin with “_ceg” are associated with the Crazy Egg web analytics service (which is subject to the Crazy Egg Privacy Policy); the ones that begin with “optimizely” are associated with the Optimizely digital experience optimization service (which is subject to the Optimizely Privacy Policy); and the ones beginning with “adsense” or listed in all caps are associated with Google AdSense and/or other Google advertising services (which are also subject to the Google Privacy Policy). The Vimeo Cookie Policy does not currently disclose the normal durations of their cookies, but some are persistent cookies that may remain in your browser for as long as your individual browser settings permit; some Google Analytics cookies can persist for up to two years. For more information about how Vimeo uses the information they collect, see the Vimeo Privacy Policy. (Vimeo is a trademark of Vimeo, Inc. AdSense and Google Analytics are trademarks of Google LLC; Google is a registered trademark of Google LLC. Crazy Egg is a trademark of Crazy Egg, Inc. Optimizely is a trademark of Optimizely, Inc., registered in the United States, EU, and elsewhere.)

PayPal® Buttons

Cookies used:

PYPF, 01A1

How they are used:

The payment or donation buttons that may appear on portions of the administrative dashboard (which is not normally accessible except to logged-in administrative users) contain embedded content served by PayPal®. Those buttons may set the third-party cookies PYPF (via paypalobjects.com), which appears to check whether or not you are a logged-in PayPal user and is probably used to facilitate the PayPal user login process, and/or 01A1 (via abmr.net), which stores certain technical information about your device and browser, probably to facilitate the login and shopping cart functions. The PYPF cookie normally expires in approximately four weeks, the 01A1 cookie in approximately one year.

If you use the buttons to make a payment or donation, PayPal sets additional cookies (not listed here) to manage your PayPal login and transaction data (and potentially also for various other purposes, such as user analytics and/or advertising). For more information on what data PayPal collects and what they do with it, visit their Legal Agreements for PayPal Services page to review the PayPal Privacy Statement and Statement on Cookies and Tracking Technologies that apply in your location. (PayPal is a registered trademark of PayPal, Inc. All button icons, custom graphics, logos, page headers, and scripts related to the PayPal services are service marks, trademarks, and/or trade dress of PayPal or PayPal’s licensors.)

Administrative and Login Cookies

Cookies used:

wordpress_test_cookie, itsec-hb-login-xx, wordpress_sec_xx, wordpress_logged_in_xx, wordpress_xx, wp-settings-UID, wp-settings-time-UID, wp-saving-post, wp-donottrack_feed

How they are used:

These functionality cookies are used to manage user logins and other WordPress administrative functions, such as post editing. If you are not an administrative user, they shouldn’t normally be placed on your device at all unless you somehow access the login area, which is off-limits to non-administrators.

Accessing the login page places the wordpress_test_cookie (a session cookie that tests whether your browser will allow the cookies needed to log in and expires when you close your browser) and the itsec-hb-login-xx cookie (which expires after about one hour and helps protect the site against “brute force” attempts to hack user passwords).

Logging in sets the wordpress_logged_in_xx, wordpress_sec_xx, and/or wordpress_xx cookies, which store your user login credentials to allow access to the administrative dashboard and other administrative functions; these cookies expire in about 15 days if you click “Remember Me” when logging in, but if you don’t, they normally expire when you close your browser (or, failing that, within about two days). The wp-settings-UID cookies store a logged-in user’s configuration settings, while the wp-settings-time-UID cookies store the time the configuration settings were set; these cookies normally expire after about one year. One or more wp-saving-post cookies may be placed while creating and/or editing posts or pages, to help manage version control and the autosave feature; these cookies normally expire after about 24 hours. The wp-donottrack_feed cookie, which controls a blog feed, may be set by accessing the dashboard menu for the WP DoNotTrack plugin (if we currently have that plugin enabled); this cookie normally expires in about one year.

For all of these administrative and login cookies, the “xx” will be a cryptographic hash while “UID” will be the administrative user’s user ID number in this website’s WordPress database. (WordPress is a registered trademark of the WordPress Foundation.)


Browser Tests

As explained in the “Browser Tests” section of the Privacy Policy, each time you visit this website, the site may perform certain automated tests to determine your web browser’s specific technical capabilities, allowing the website to adjust the presentation and functionality of the site to be more compatible with your browser. The site’s administrative login page (which is off-limits except to authorized administrative users) may perform similar tests, such as (without limitation) testing whether the user’s browser will allow the cookies required to log into the site’s administrative dashboard.

The results of such tests may be stored in your browser’s local storage and/or saved in cookies (e.g., the wordpress_test_cookie described in the “Administrative and Login Cookies” category above). The site may also show you specific messages or other content based on this information, such as displaying a warning notification that your current browser is incompatible with some site features.
