We use cookies on the Yorkshire Housing website so we can provide visitors a consistent and useful experience.

Cookies generally fall into one of the following categories, so we have explained which types we use and why.

Cookies strictly necessary for this site to function

We currently use cookies for areas on the website where you have to log in. We also use cookies to save your preferences about surveys and cookies.

Cookies used to monitor website performance

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Cookies used in providing additional functionality for users

The Yorkshire Housing website uses Google Translate, a language translation service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Translate uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help them analyze how users use the service and to remember users language preferences.

Cookies used by third-party providers in embedded content

Websites that provide content like pictures, videos or status feeds will sometimes set cookies when you view the content so they can do things like count how many people have watched a video, seen a picture, or read a status. They may also attempt to determine if you have an active account with their service so they can personalise what you see, such as a list of your friends that have also viewed or liked the embedded content.

Websites that Yorkshire Housing has accounts with, and therefore may embed content from, include Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, Instagram, Google+, Flickr, WordPress, Gravatar, Slideshare, Prezi, Storify, Vine, and Mailchimp.

The Website may contain links to Third Party Sites which are outside our control and are not covered by these Terms. You understand and agree that if you access such Third Party Sites using the links provided, the operators of those Third Party Sites may collect information from you which will be used by them in accordance with their own privacy policies.

Your use of the Third Party Sites will therefore be governed by the privacy policies of those sites and not by this Privacy Policy. Yorkshire Housing shall not be responsible for the actions of any Third Party Site operators.
