Use of flash files?
Across the website Gearing Media Group makes use of flash files which present information, allow integration with 3rd parties (such as You Tube), and can offer a richer online experience. Currently technology is limited in its ability to review the ‘inner workings’ of flash files. We have strived to identify any flash elements that are likely to set cookies but, right now, we cannot guarantee the status of every flash file. Adobe offers a tool to monitor, opt out and remove ‘flash cookies’. More information is available at: www.macromedia.com.
