Third party cookies
These are cookies set by other websites whose services we use:
Google Analytics - we use Google Analytics to gather aggregated information to understand how visitors engage with us. Knowing which areas of content are most popular allows us to organise our content accordingly, making it easier for customers to find what they are looking for. The data is collected anonymously, reporting website trends without identifying individual visitors. The data collected is very helpful to us in improving this website, but you can opt out if you wish.
YouTube (Google) - we embed some videos from our christchurch.gov.uk YouTube account to provide add value to certain areas of content. A YouTube cookie is used to provide web analytics in terms of the number of times a video has been watched and/or shared.
