In this section you will find information on what cookies may be set when you visit the adamandeveDDB website and how to manage them.
What are cookies?
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your device (eg computer or mobile phone). These include small files known as cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
- Enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task
- Recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don’t need to do it for every web page requested
- Measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made easier to use and there’s enough capacity to ensure they are fast
- Analysing anonymised data to help us understand how people interact with government services so we can make them better

How to manage these cookies:
Social networking tools
On some pages, we feature embedded ‘share’ buttons or widgets that enable you to share content with friends through a number of popular social networking sites (eg Google+1; Twitter; Facebook ‘Like’ etc). These sites may set cookies which can identify you personally when you are also logged in to their services. This means they may be collecting information about what you are doing all around the internet. We do not control these cookies and you should check the relevant third-party website to see how your information is used and how to opt out.
External web services
Sometimes, we also embed photos and video content from websites such as YouTube and Flickr. As a result, when you visit a page which features such content, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. As with the social networking tools (above), we cannot prevent these sites or domains from collecting information on your use of this content. If you are not logged in to their services then they will not know who you are but may still gather anonymous usage information (eg number of views, plays, loads etc). We do not control these cookies and you should check the relevant third-party website for more information about them and how you can opt out.
