How are users' personalizations stored?

See also the attached screenshot of, a page I got by clicking the link for creating Amara subtitling pages in a Korean page,, and adding a YouTube URL.

  1. That created page, although an / page, i.e. meant to be  in English, nevertheless had a message in Korean on top: "여기 동영상에 대한 자막 작업 영역입니다. 당신이 친구들과 비디오를 공유하거나, 귀하의 사이트에 대한 소스 코드를 얻을 수 있습니다. 자막을 추가하거나 개선하기 위해, 비디오 아래의 버튼을 클릭합니다." Why? (f I open the same URL in another tab, the Korean message doesn't appear.)
  2. Although I have repeatedly clicked the "No thanks" link in the banner for connecting a YouTube account to Amara, the banner keeps reappearing after a while: why?

More in general, which personalizations get stored on the Amara server in our account settings, and which are added to our browser via a cookie? For instance, if the video tutorials reappear in the editing interface after a while although I've checked the "Skip these videos" box, is it because this skipping preference is stored in a deciduous cookie of my browser? Same question for the subtitling mode reverting to "Beginner" after a while.
