What are cookies?

No, you can’t eat these cookies! They are pieces of information that a website can transfer to your computer’s hard drive. They can make websites easier to use by storing information about your preferences.
The information stays on your computer after you have left the site, but you can delete them. If you want to do this, you must discuss this with your parents/guardian before doing so.
Most Internet browsers accept cookies straight away. If you prefer not to receive them, you can adjust your Internet browser to refuse cookies or to warn you when cookies are being used.
As before, you must discuss this with your parents before making any changes. Our site will work better if you allow cookies, but it will still work if you disable them.

Websites we link out to are not covered by this Privacy Policy. If you do access other sites using the links provided, they might collect and use your information in a different way to Tate.

Can I access any personal data you have about me?

Yes you can. If you would like a copy, please contact us or ask your parents/guardian to contact us at kids@tate.org.uk
