Third Party Cookies

Third party cookies are cookies that are used by another site or service, for example our video content.

Please note Vimeo sets third-party cookies which are deemed essential for the player to operate. A DNT (do not track) parameter has been implemented so that no third-party analytics or advertising cookies are used by Vimeo.

However, we cannot control the cookies that are used by vimeo when a user is logged into the service. This sits with the user’s acceptance of Vimeo’s cookie and privacy policies.  If you are a registered Vimeo member, you can also manage the cookies you use in the Vimeo settings. For further information please see Vimeo’s cookie policy: https://vimeo.com/cookie_policy. Vimeo members may see the following cookies listed below:

There are some cookies that expire 10 years after first viewing a Vimeo video while most of them expire between a few days for up to two years after the last viewing of a Vimeo video.

Vimeo sets a number of cookies on any page that embeds a Vimeo video. While we have no control over these cookies, they appear to include a mixture of pieces of information to measure the number and behavior of Vimeo viewers, to hold information about current viewing video settings as well as a personal identification token, if you are logged into Vimeo. Furthermore, a set of cookies regarding Google AdSense advertising campaigns might be set, which contain identifiers that record user browsing behavior.
