Cookies that are used for functional website use
Some Bury Means Business pages may contain content from other sites, like YouTube, which may set their own cookies. These sites are sometimes called 'third party' services. This tells us how many people are seeing the content and whether it's useful.
In addition, if you share a link to a Bury Means Business page, the service you share it on (for example, Facebook) may set a cookie. We have no control over cookies set on other websites - you can turn them off, but not through us.
