Third party cookies
Our site, like most websites, includes functionality provided by third parties. A common example is an embedded YouTube video. Some third party services embedded within this website set their own cookies. These are known as third party cookies because they are not set by our website. We have no control over the cookies that are set by third party services. Disabling these cookies will likely break the functions offered by these third parties.
Turning cookies off
You can usually switch cookies off by adjusting your browser settings to stop it from accepting cookies. It may be that your concerns around cookies relate to so called “spyware”. Rather than switching off cookies in your browser you may find that anti-spyware software achieves the same objective by automatically deleting cookies considered to be invasive.
Do we disclose any information to outside parties?
We do not disclose your personal information to any third parties unless we are legally obliged to do so.
- You may request that the Surrey Hills Society stops processing your personal data in relation to any event or workshop.
