3) Third Party Cookies
On some pages on this website we may insert a video (e.g. from YouTube), a Facebook "like" or information box, a "Google +1" icon, or a section, box, badge, graphic that contains information or code that originates from another website (i.e. a Third Party). Depending on the source, purpose and type of data in question, on such pages a "Third Party Cookie" may be stored on your computer.
Most web browsers (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera, Safari etc) allow you to decide whether or not to accept such Third Party Cookies - please refer to the Help section of your web browser for further information on how to do so.
4) Cookies used by advertisements on this site
None of the adverts that appear on the Cymru 1 Website write or read any form of cookie. Instead they are simply images or text that links to the appropriate advertiser's website. Unless you deliberately click on an advert image or text, no data whatsoever is gathered and no cookie is set or read.
As mentioned in the section above, none of the third-party adverts you may see on the Cymru 1 website write or read any type of cookie whatsoever - the adverts are simply images or text which links to other websites.
This is not necessarily the case for third-party adverts on other websites you may visit, which might set or read cookies if you simple visit a page where an advert appears. Depending on the source of such adverts, these cookies can potentially be used to track your use of the internet and the data gathered in this way could be used for behavioural advertising (where adverts relating to the subject matter found on the sites you most often visit or most recently visited appear on a website instead of a generic advert that might not interest you as much).
If you are concerned about behavioural advertising you can opt-out of most well-known online advertising agencies behavioural tracking systems by visiting www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp
