Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

The BBC has a large collection of websites, like many sites, it includes scripts from "3rd parties", information on any visit is shared with these 3rd parties. Allowing companies not-connected to the BBC to collect information on BBC users, the BBC's privacy policy notes that sometimes third party content is included and data shared, but does not inform on what or who, and just says "you should check with the relevant 3rd party". This request is for information on who these 3rd parties are, so that the checking can be done, and also to be aware who can view my activity on a BBC site.

On the BBC website, what non BBC organisations have scripts, images, iframes, or any similar 3rd party content embedded inside a BBC webpage. The domain names of where the scripts are loaded from and the company that controls them, also if it is possible to opt-out of them.

Yours faithfully,

James Ley
