Third party cookies
We sometimes embed video content and photos from websites such as YouTube and flickr. Pages with this embedded content may present cookies from these websites. Similarly, when you use one of the share buttons on our website, a cookie may be set by the service you have chosen to share content through. You should check the relevant third party website for more information about these cookies.
We use Agilisys Engage to monitor the pages users visit and how each user travels across our website. The Agilisys Engage software also allows us to monitor pages visited by our users on a small number of public service partner websites within North Somerset and / or the West of England. We use the information to compile reports and to help us measure and improve the service we provide, including the performance of our sites.
If you do not want to have these cookies placed on your browser, you can change the settings on your browser to remove and/or block cookies.

The cookies used are
- LGNref is the third party cookie, which Engage drops. This is dropped under the logo-net.co.uk domain. This cookie stores the profiling data e.g. the most recent web pages visited and is a session-based cookie, so expires when you close the browser
- IJSERVERID is a third party cookie that is created under the uktc.ijento.com domain. This cookie stores a random, unique and anonymous ID for each user. It allows us to recognise that a user on the North Somerset websites is the same user on one of our partner websites
