We may, at times, use a number of external web services on our website, mainly to display content within our web pages. For example, to display images we occasionally use Flickr or similar photo storage sites; to show videos we may use YouTube.

We cannot prevent these sites, or external domains, from collecting information on your usage of any embedded content. If you are not logged in to these external services then they will not be able to identify you but they are likely to gather anonymous usage information e.g. in the case of YouTube the number of views, plays, loads, etc. To find out more please visit YouTube’s embedding videos information page.

There are software applications available, such Abine's Blur plug-in for for popular web browsers, which can be installed on web browsers to automatically prevent tracking by social Media and many hundreds of other advertising tracking type cookies.
