YVMT uses cookies to enable you to log in to the website and use the services, and for purposes such as analytics, research and limited marketing/advertising (of our own services), and to improve some of our features and services. You can choose to allow these cookies below and change your preferences at any time in this section.

Strictly necessary cookies only

These cookies are used for activities that are strictly necessary to operate or deliver the service you requested from us and, therefore, are required.


These cookies help us to measure traffic and analyse your interaction with our service, with the goal of improving our service.


A 'cookie' is a small text file that is placed on a user's device by a website. There are several types of cookie and the most common are often referred to as 'session' cookies. These are used to keep track of information needed by a user as they travel from page to page within a website. These cookies have a short lifetime and expire within a short period of the user leaving the site.

Other types of cookies can be used to track internet activity after the user has left a website. These are either sponsored by organisations external to the website being visited (known as 'third party' cookies) or can originate from the website organisation itself ('first party' cookies). These usually have a long lifetime with several months being quite common. They are 'harvested' and 'refreshed' whenever the user visits a page where the same or a similar cookie is being used. YVMT does use these.

This website uses benign, short lived 'session' cookies and 'first party' cookies to tell whether a website user has logged-in, where to find details that can be used to pre-fill parts of on-line forms and to personalise the user's visit to the website. They are also used to track anonymously which areas of the site are popular and which are not used; this allows us to target carefully our website resources.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., which uses cookies to help a website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be used by Google for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website on our behalf. When your personal data is processed by Google Analytics, it will be processed under Google's privacy notice, which can be found here.
