The Website uses cookies to distinguish You from other users of the Website. This helps DACS to provide You with a good experience when You browse the Website and also allows DACS to improve the Website. By continuing to browse the Website, You are agreeing to DACS’ use of cookies.

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that DACS stores on Your browser or the hard drive of Your computer if You agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to Your computer's hard drive.

DACS uses the following cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies: These are cookies that are required for the operation of the Website. They include, for example, cookies that enable You to log into secure areas of the Website, register for an account and license images.
  • Analytical/performance cookies: These are cookies that allow DACS to recognise and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around the Website when they are using it. This helps DACS to improve the way the Website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.  DACS does not collect or store Your personal information alongside this analytical information, so it cannot be used to identify who You are.

Google Analytics shares information about what pages You visit, how long You are on the Website, how You found the Website and what You click on.  DACS does not collect or store Your personal information (e.g. name/address) alongside this information, so it cannot be used to identify who You are.  DACS does not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.  You can find out more about Google Analytics on their website, which also provides global opt-out tools.
