Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary

Cookie Policy for Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary

The standard practice for this website (and almost all other websites) is to place cookies, (small data files), on whatever device you may use to view this site.
Cookies are essential for helping us deliver a high quality website for our visitors, and some collect information about browsing and buying behaviour.

Google Advertising
Only Google Adsense and Google AdManager are responsible for providing adverts on this site.
Adverts are only placed in unobtrusive areas to minimise the inevitable annoyance caused. We wish advertising was not required to keep this Scottish Country Dancing Dictionary website going, but sadly, it is!
We use Google to provide personalised and/or non-personalised adverts to enrich this site as we believe them to be the safest and most trusted advertisers available. Google, as a third-party vendor, uses cookies to serve adverts on this site. Here is an explanation from Google on how Google manages data in its ads products on sites like this one.
Google's use of cookies (like DoubleClick cookie, the Dart cookie and others) enables it and its partners to serve adverts to users of this website based on their visit to this site and/or other sites on the Internet.
Google is committed to complying with the GDPR, including to the extent transposed into UK law, across all of the services that are provided in Europe. Changes to their EU User Consent Policy reflect that commitment and guidance from European data protection authorities.
Follow this link if you would like more information from Google about this practice and to know your choices about not having this information used by these companies.
The DoubleClick cookie is used by Google in the adverts served on the websites of its partners, such as websites displaying AdSense adverts or participating in Google certified advert networks. When users visit a partner's website and either view or click on an advert, a cookie may be dropped on that end user's browser.
Third party vendors, including Google, use cookies to serve adverts based on a user's prior visits to this and other websites.

Google GDPR Consent
Because we only use Google technology to provide adverts, we also only use Google technology to provide GDPR Consent to use your personal data.
We believe this gives us the best chance of fully complying with the latest advertising regulations.

Third-Party Advertising
We may use third-party advertising companies (through Google Adsense) to serve adverts when you visit our website and so the cookies of other third-party vendors or ad networks may also be used to serve adverts on this site. These companies may use information (not including your name, address, email address or telephone number) about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide advertisements about goods and services thought to be of interest to you.
Some of these third-party advertisers may use technology such as cookies and web beacons when they advertise on our site, which will also send these advertisers (such as Google through the Google AdSense program) information including your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site, and in some cases whether you have Flash installed. This is generally used for geotargeting purposes (showing Scottish holiday adverts to someone in Scotland, for example) or showing certain adverts based on specific sites visited (such as showing kilt hire adverts to someone who frequents Scottish dance sites).

YouTube (And Other) Videos
We have integrated YouTube videos into our website, which are stored on and the videos can be played directly from our website without having to click through to YouTube first.
These are all integrated in the "Privacy-Enhanced Mode", i.e. no data about you as a user will be transmitted to YouTube, if you do not click on the videos to start playing them. We believe this to be the most private way of showing YouTube videos on this site.
By playing the videos, YouTube receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding sub-page of our website and cookie data may be transmitted. We have no influence on this data transfer. This is independent of whether YouTube provides a user account through which you are logged in or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information may be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the videos. YouTube stores your data as user profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube and/or Google to exercise this right. Such evaluation takes place in particular (even for unlogged-in users) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. Third party content (eg videos) may contain adverts. We have no control over this and receive no benefits.

Your Consent
By using this website, you consent to our website privacy policy. If you do not consent, (or consent, then change your mind) you must disable cookies or refrain from using this site.

Deleting Cookies
If you want to control the information Google uses to show you ads, including opting out of the use of Google cookies for interest-based advertising, visit Google Ads Settings. You can also see how to opt out of a third-party vendor's use of cookies for interest based advertising by visiting
Alternatively you can visit to see how to control cookies, cookie law and even a really good recipe for baking cookies. At you can also choose to disable or selectively turn off cookies in your browser settings. Lifewire may also be helpful to you to explain exactly how to delete cookies in every major browser.
Deleting cookies does not mean you are permanently opted out of any advertising program. Unless you have settings that disallow cookies, the next time you visit a site running the advertisements, a new cookie may be added. Depending on which cookies you disable, in general this and other sites may not operate properly if cookies are switched off. This could include the inability to login to services or programs, such as logging into forums or accounts. For example, on this site you will probably find the YouTube videos don't play as they should.
You can set your web browser in such a way that cookies are generally prevented from being saved to your device and/or that you are asked each time whether you are in agreement with cookies being enabled. You can also at any time delete cookies that have been enabled again. You can find out how all this works in detail from your browser's help function.

All providers listed below have shared certain information that is required by the GDPR.
