Cookie Policy

This is the Cookie Policy for the web site at http://www.somersethouse.org.uk (this Site), which is operated by the Somerset House Trust. "Somerset House Trust", (or “we”) Registered Charity No.1063640 of Strand, London, WC2R 1LA. Somerset House Trust respects the privacy of every individual visiting our web sites. In this Cookie Policy, references to “you” means any person submitting any data to us or this Site. By using this Site you agree to the use of cookies during such use.

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

On websites operated by the Somerset House Trust, cookies record information about your online preferences and visiting patterns and allow us to tailor the website(s) to your interests. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised features cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly they may not be able to take full advantage of all of the website's features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

During the course of any visit to a website operated by the Somerset House Trust, the pages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.
