How we use cookies

This site, like many others, uses small files called cookies to help us customise your experience. Find out more about cookies and how you can control them.

This page contains information on what cookies are, the cookies used by the Affinity Trust website, how to switch cookies off in your browser, how to specifically switch off advertising cookies, and some useful links for further reading on the subject. If it does not provide the information you were looking for, or you have any further questions about the use of cookies on this website, please email

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored by your computer’s browser (for example, Chrome or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone when you visit a website. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.

How does the Affinity Trust website use cookies?

A visit to a page on our website may generate the following types of cookie:

  • Anonymous analytics cookies

  • Third-party advertising cookies

  • Location preference cookies

Anonymous analytics cookies (Google Analytics, DoubleClick and Heap Analytics)

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an anonymous analytics cookie.

These cookies are from Google Analytics, DoubleClick and Heap Analytics.
Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.

This allows us to track things like how many individual users we have, how often they visit the site and what pages they visit while here.

We use them to understand how people are using our website so we can make improvements to it.

We cannot use these cookies to identify individuals.

More information about the cookies used by each of these third parties can be found on their websites:

Other third-party cookies

On some pages of our website, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, we are unable to see any of the data stored by these third party cookies, and in turn they are unable to access our data.

On the Affinity Trust website, these third-party cookies include:

  • Twitter cookies, which show our latest tweets (for example, on our homepage).

  • Vimeo cookies, which are used on any page where we have a video, and are mainly used to save your viewing preferences (for example, whether a user has enabled ‘continuous play’ on a video). Vimeo also uses cookies to enable third parties to advertise before or after a video.

More information about these cookies can be found at:

Location preference cookies

We also use a cookie to remember if, on the home page, you selected an area we work in. This cookie doesn’t store any information and doesn’t follow you to any other sites – it simply remembers if you’ve previously selected, for example, Leeds, as your nearest/preferred location, and is there solely to enhance your browsing experience.

How can I turn off cookies?

It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting either all cookies, or just cookies from a particular website. Turning off certain cookies may affect your experience on our website, but we will try to minimise any impact caused by this.

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the Options or Preferences menu of your browser.

To understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, or see the Help option in your browser for more details.

If you are mainly concerned about third-party cookies generated by advertisers, you can turn these off via Your Online Choices.

For more information, you can also visit Network Advertising Initiative, the trade body representing these advertising platforms.  They have a site where you can control all third-party online advertising.
