What are cookies?
In order for this site to work properly and to evaluate and improve the site we, and other organisations, may collect information by using small files and other tracking technologies on your computer or other devices you use to access the internet; for simplicity we refer to all such technologies as “cookies”. Over 90% of all websites do this.
Cookie information is stored in your browser and performs functions such as recognising you when you return to our website. When you visit the site, your computer or other device checks to see if it has a cookie that the website recognises. If it has such a cookie, it communicates with the website and enables the website to read the information held in that cookie. It also enables us to understand which sections of the website you find most interesting and useful.

Third-party cookies are those created by other websites. For example, some of our web pages may contain content from other sites such as YouTube or Flickr. Third-party cookies are created by these websites and are mainly used for tracking and online-advertising. If you share a link to another website that may also create a third-party cookie on your browser.

This website uses Google Analytics to collect anonymous information such as the number of visitors to our website and the most popular pages. This is to help us improve usability and deliver relevant content. When you visit the Restore TV, SRN or DMSL website, your visit is tracked as a session. A Google Analytics user ID code is generated at each session. DMSL will disassociate the user ID from the session after 14 months.
