Does clearing the cookies log you out? And is that why I got logged out?

Yes, it does.

A cookie is a small piece of text sent to your browser by a website you visit. It helps the site remember information about your visit, which can make it easier to visit the site again and make the site more useful to you.

I believe this is normal application behaviour when you clear your Web browser cookies (maybe they were selected within the cache and other checkboxes?) as the Web browser would not anymore have the needed “cookie based authenticator” for the application session, and when you tried to click somewhere on the Cloudflare page would result in this warning/message.

It applies for the most apps which are using cookies, like Gmail, Facebook, etc.
