First Party Cookies
First Party Session Cookies
First party session cookies are stored by www.thegablesbristol.co.uk temporarily during a browsing session, and are deleted when you close your browser.
First party cookies on this website are used to give a more seamless browsing experience and link the actions of a user during a browsing session. If you wish to disable these cookies, we recommend you do so by disabling them directly within your browser; please see the link at the bottom of this page for instructions on how to do so. Please be aware that disabling these cookies may mean that parts of the website will not work.
First Party Persistent Cookies
First party persistent cookies are stored by a website for a fixed period (usually a year or longer) and are not deleted when the browser is closed. Persistent cookies are used where a website needs to remember a user’s preferences (for example, what has been put in a shopping basket) for more than one browsing session, and they will automatically be applied the next time you visit the site.
Third Party Cookies
Third Party Cookies are placed by domains other than www.thegablesbristol.co.uk. For example, we use Google Analytics which will set cookies to perform this service. They can be either session or persistent cookies.
This website may also contain content embedded from, for example, YouTube which can set its own (third party) cookies. See below for more information on Third Party Cookies.
Web pages on the site may occasionally include embedded YouTube videos. Where this occurs, YouTube can drop standard, and flash-based, cookies to collect analytical information. If you wish to disable these cookies, we recommend you do so by disabling them directly within your browser. Please see the link at the bottom of this page for instructions.
This website uses Google Analytics to collect anonymous information about how visitors use the site and helps us improve services and better understand user requirements.

Disabling these cookies will have no impact on your user experience, and will only result in anonymous information about your site usage not being collected.
Google Maps and Google API
This website may use embedded Google Maps and the Google API to enhance site content. Google capture some information as you view a map on their servers, to remember options and preferences such as location, zoom level or type of map, but some analytical information is also transferred about usage.
If you wish to disable these cookies, we suggest you do so by disabling them directly within your browser. Please see the link at the bottom of this page for instructions.
Disabling these cookies may result in embedded Google Maps not being displayed correctly (or at all) and not remembering preferences such as location, zoom level or type of map.
