Types of cookie we use

Like most websites, the Blaenavon World Heritage website uses session cookies and persistent cookies. Neither session cookies nor persistent cookies collect any personally identifiable information.

Session cookies

We use session cookies, which last only for the duration of your visit (your 'session') and are deleted when you close your browser. These simply enable us to identify that the same person is moving from page to page.

Persistent cookies

We also use certain cookies that are persistent, meaning that they last beyond your session. Persistent cookies help our website remember you as a user each time you use the same computer to revisit us.
