What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.

How does the Royal Museums Greenwich website use cookies?

A visit to a page on the Royal Museums Greenwich website may generate cookies. 
 
The cookies we use allow us to know whether or not you’ve seen an advert or a type of advert, and how long it is since you’ve seen it. We also use cookies to help us use targeted advertising. We may use cookies set by another organisation so we can more accurately target advertising to you. 
 
These cookies are anonymous – they store information about what you are looking at on our site, but not about who you are.
 

How do I turn cookies off?

If you are primarily concerned about third party cookies generated by advertisers, you can turn these off by going to the Your Online Choices site.
