These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, such as which pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages. They enable the Brooke to see what supporters like most on the website and what they like less. They don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous.

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymous and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
The Brooke uses Youtube to cheaply embed and distribute out videos. For details of the cookies that may be downloaded when using Youtube please visit here
These cookies are used to deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organisation.
The Brooke does NOT use these.
