A cookie is a small amount of data, including an anonymous unique identifier sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive to enable functions such as auto login, if your browser’s preferences allow it.

3. Third party cookies are cookies that are not set by vaorkney.org.uk but are instead set by a third party. Third party cookies are set on the site by Google Analytics. Google Analytics sets cookies to help us accurately estimate the number of visitors to the site and volumes of usage.
4. Other third party cookies – on some pages of the website you may notice that cookies have been set that are not related to VAO. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Facebook, these service providers may set their own cookies on your web browser. These anonymous cookies may be set by that third party to track the success of their application or to customise their application to you. VAO does not control the use of these cookies and cannot access them due to the way that cookies work, as cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. You should check the third party websites for more information about these cookies.
