What are cookies?

We may track your visit to our website by using ‘cookies’.

We may use them to:

Types of cookies we use

First-party cookies

These cookies are set by the website you’re visiting i.e. www.bluedragon.org. Only we can read them.

Third-party cookies

These cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting.

Pages on our site may include embedded content (e.g. videos and audio files etc.). Embedded content from other websites behave in exactly the same way as if you have visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you e.g. embed additional analytics tracking.

We have limited control over third-party cookies. You can only turn them off either through the third party site or via your browser. If you wish any stored data to be deleted by the third party, you will need to contact them directly.

The following is a list of third party cookies used on our site as of June 2018:

Monarch Plugin

Monarch is a social media sharing plugin by Elegant Themes. It does not send data to third parties such as Twitter or Facebook before you choose to share a page by clicking on one of the sharing buttons, only then a connection to the social media platforms will be established.

You can view the Elegant Themes privacy policy here: www.elegantthemes.com/policy/privacy

If you have any questions or concerns about the Elegant Themes Privacy Policy, please contact them at support@elegantthemes.com.

YouTube

On some pages, we embed clips from our YouTube channel or from other video sites. The YouTube privacy enhanced embed code we use prevents most cookies from being used by YouTube on our site initially (i.e. www.youtube-nocookie.com/embed/).

However, once you choose to watch the video, YouTube cookies are activated.
