Our website has a number of embedded videos that are externally hosted on YouTube. We include these on our pages using the standard embed mechanisms provided by YouTube. We use the privacy enhanced version of the embed code that references www.youtube-nocookie.com - this ensures that the embedded player only sets cookies once you click on it.

The embedded player may also set a Flash Locally Shared Object as soon as the page loads. Adobe's website offers tools to control Flash Locally Shared Objects on your computer

As these cookies/LSO are set by YouTube, we have no direct control over their usage. For further information please read YouTube's privacy policy.
