Cookies may be placed on your device by our third party service providers which remember that you have visited a website in order to provide you with targeted adverts which are more relevant to you and your interests. This is often called online behavioural advertising (OBA) (also known as 'behavioural targeting' or 'interest based advertising') and is done by grouping together shared interests based upon previous web browsing activity.

Other third party cookies

Please note that on some pages of our websites you may notice that cookies have been set that are not related to Plymouth City Council or our authorised service providers. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Facebook, these service providers may set their own cookies on your web browser.
