Advertising Cookies

We have some relationships with carefully selected and monitored third-party suppliers to perform remarketing services on our behalf. Remarketing is a way for us to connect with people who have recently interacted with the British Red Cross website

We may place remarketing cookies during your visit and third-party suppliers, including Google, may use these to show you British Red Cross ads when you visit other websites. Neither us, advertisers or our advertising partners can gain personally identifiable information from these cookies.

You can learn more about online advertising and opt out of almost all advertising cookies at http://www.youronlinechoices.com (this does not mean that will not mean you won't see adverts, but that they won't be tailored to you any longer).
