These cookies hold information about the computer - they don't hold personal information about you (ie it's not linked to you as an individual), but they might hold a record of what other websites you've looked at - so we could show you a holiday advert if you've previously visited a travel/holiday website.

You can opt-out of these cookies by visiting the websites below - please note though that this won't mean you will no longer see adverts on netweather, it simply means that they will no longer be tailored to your interests.
