North of Tyne Mountain Rescue team collects information through:

  • Cookies placed on our website either by a third party (e.g. Google Analytics) or hosted by North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team.

When you visit our website we collect browsing information in a way which does not identify anyone.

What is a cookie and why are they used by North of Tyne Mountain Rescue Team?

Cookies are small files of letters or numbers downloaded on to a device when users access websites. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide service information to the owners of the site. Cookies can be grouped into three categories: “session”, “persistent” and “first and third party”

Session cookies (Temporary)

These are temporary cookie files, which are erased when you close your browser. When you restart your website browser and go back to the site that created the cookie, the website will not recognise you.

Persistent cookies (Permanent)

These files stay in one of your website browser's subfolders until you delete them manually or your browser deletes them based on the duration period contained within the persistent cookie's file.

First and Third Party cookies

Whether a cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website or domain placing the cookie. First party cookies are cookies set by a website visited by the user. Third-party cookies are created by a website other than the one you are currently visiting; for example, the Google analytics cookies placed on this website are third party which measure how many website visitors we receive.


Cookies are not spyware or viruses and they can't read information from a computer. Neither are cookies the source for pop-ups or spam. They cannot be executed as code and are therefore incapable of transmitting computer viruses.

What if I refuse cookies?

Refusing all cookies will affect your web experience and may result in some parts of the website not functioning properly.

Links to other websites:

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over that other website. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting these sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement.

You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Donating through Virgin Money Giving:

If you click on the donate buttons located on our website, you'll be taken through to Virgin Money Giving, our partner site for securely collecting donations. If you donate using this site, and opt in to charity marketing, then we may get in touch with you to keep you up to date. We may send the occasional newsletter with information about our charity and what we are spending donations on. Such newsletters will be sent using a third party site called Mailchimp, and you can read their privacy policy here. You can also opt out of marketing at any time.

Changes to this Privacy Notice:

If this privacy policy changes in any way, we will place an updated version on this page. Regularly reviewing this page ensures you are always aware of what information we collect and how we use it.
