Google stores the information collected by the cookie on servers in the United States.

4. Cookies set by Third Party sites

Within our blog or in other rich media areas of our website, we sometimes embed photos and video content from websites such as YouTube and Flickr. As a result, when you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, YouTube or Flickr, you may be presented with cookies from these websites. WebMe does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the relevant third party website for more information about these.

WebMe Sharing Tools

We would like to draw your attention to the fact that the WebMe website now carries embedded ‘share’ buttons to enable users of the site to easily share articles with their friends through a number of popular social networks. These sites may set a cookie when you are also logged in to their service. WebMe does not control the dissemination of these cookies and you should check the relevant third party website for more information about these.

5. Other Third Party IP Address Processing activities

If you shorten WebMe URLs, for example on Twitter or Facebook, and use the bit.ly service to do so, WebMe works with bit.ly to rebrand that as a http://w.me.uk/xxxxx link. Also WebMe web products or phone apps sometimes offer features that allow users to share links with social networks and WebMe shortens that URL using the bit.ly service.

Bit.ly provides WebMe with anonymised, aggregated statistics relating to use of the shortened WebMe URL, for example by telling us how many times it has been clicked on. WebMe does not have access to the IP address of your computer collected by bit.ly when you use its service or any other identifiable information about you. Nor does Bit.ly have any access to data collected on a WebMe website. For more information on bit.ly's privacy policy, please see http://bit.ly/pages/privacy.
