What personal data we collect and why we collect it


We do not allow comments on this site, and so do not collect your email address.

We encourage you to comment on YouTube to engage with the archive footage shown there by other people. Because of the computer algorithms, your comment helps material you enjoyed get promoted and seen by a wider audience.


Visitors may not upload media to this site.

Contact forms

We do not use contact forms for this website.


Google Analytics collects cookies on our behalf so we can see which pages are popular with our visitors. We do not see your name, email address or other personal information.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Who we share your data with

Google Adsense and Amazon Affiliates, whose links appear on our site, also collect cookies so that the referral is counted. We will receive a small payment for the referral, which is used to pay for the setup and ongoing maintenance costs of running this site. 

The information collected by the other parties may include your IP address, your ISP, the browser you used to visit our site and, in some cases, whether you have Flash installed. This data is generally used for geographical target purposes, such as showing non-UK ads to overseas readers and tailoring adverts to the interests of the reader.

DART cookies may be used for ads served through Google’s DoubleClick, which places a cookie on your computer when you are browsing the web and visit a site using DoubleClick advertising. This includes some Google AdSense advertisements, which are shown on our site. This cookie is used to serve ads specific to you and your interests. The ads served will be targeted based on your previous browsing history. 

No one at LocalHistoryVideos sees your previous browsing history or the adverts you are shown. 

DART does not track personal information about you, such as your name, email address, physical address, telephone number, bank account numbers or credit card numbers. You can opt-out of this on all sites using this form of advertising here.

Affiliate Policy

Some links on Local History Videos, which take you to external websites, are affiliate links.  We may receive a commission if you subsequently make a purchase from that merchant.

The use of affiliate links helps fund the running and maintenance of this site.  The site’s advertisement run by Google Adsense do not cover the monthly costs, especially with the increased use of ad blocking software.

Because it is technically difficult for us to identify every individual affiliate link, you should assume that any link on this site may be an affiliate link even though only a fraction are.

It is our honest view that affiliate links have no impact on the editorial content of the site. The long-term success of Local History Videos is based on people enjoying their visits to our site and sharing pages with their friends.

Local History Videos is a participant in the Amazon EU Associates Programme, an affiliate advertising programme designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to


The security of your Personal Information is important to us. We have established an https site with SSL certification to protect you, even though we do not allow readers to register, comment, subscribe or use any other means to provide their name or identification. 

But remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. While we strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
