In addition, there are a number of third-party cookies set from other ad vendors (including DoubleClick, PubMatic, OpenX, Amobee and others). Google AdSense allows these vendors to bid on the advertising space available on this site.

Because the vendor list is dynamic, it’s impossible to specify exactly which cookies will be added – however all of these ad vendor cookies are used to determine which ads you’ve seen across multiple websites, in order to show you relevant ads (and avoid showing you the same thing too many times).

What Can I Opt Out Of?

Cookies listed in the WordPress and Tealium sections above are considered necessary cookies and cannot be opted out of.

Cookies listed in the Cookie Consent section above are also considered necessary cookies. Particularly for the privacy-conscious, these cookies control whether advertising and personalisation cookies are set or not – so they’re pretty important!

All other cookies can be opted out of as follows:
