The BBC website site has a great plain English description of how cookies work.
We also use Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting which is based on data from Google Display Advertising. We use aggregate data provided by this service (such as age, gender and interests) to better understand our website audience and adjust our communications appropriately.
If you would like to opt out of Google Demographics and Interest Reporting please change your Google settings. Alternatively, you can choose to opt out of Google Analytics altogether by downloading an opt-out browser add-on.
We may change this policy without notice. If this happens we'll post a clear notice on the site and show what's changed.
