Yorkshire Geological Society Website Cookie Policy

What Are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves onto your computer (or mobile device), when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login status, language, font size and other preferences) over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back later on, or when you browse from one page to the next.

How Might We Use Cookies On Our Website?

We may use cookies to remember the following:

1. If you have already replied to any popups or notices, such as if you have agreed to our use of cookies on this site. This is so you won't be asked again every time you visit our site.

2. Your preferences, such as font size.

3. Any videos or audio embedded in our pages may use a cookie to anonymously gather playback statistics.

Enabling these cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work, but it will provide you with a better browsing experience. You can delete or block these cookies, but if you do, some features of this website may not work as intended.

How To Control Cookies

You can control and/or delete cookies stored on your computer as you wish. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer, and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed in the future. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust your preferences every time you visit the website, and some of our services and functionality may not work properly.

Please Note

The cookie-related information is not used to identify or track you personally - we take your privacy very seriously! These cookies are not used for any purpose other than to improve the functionality and user experience of our own website. You may also be interested in reading our privacy policy, which discusses our policy on privacy in further detail.
