Cookie Usage on this Web Site

We use cookies in relation to certain areas of the Site. Cookies are files which store information on your hard drive or browser which means that we can recognise that you have visited the Site before. Cookies can make it easier for you to maintain your preferences on the Site. By seeing how you use the Site we can tailor the Site around users’ preferences and measure the general usability of the website. In particular we may use cookies to identify which pages are being most frequently used. This information is used for statistical analysis including the identification of patterns and trends in educational needs and demand.

In general Cookies fall into the following types:

  1. Essential: Those which are needed for the normal running of the web site. Disabling these is not an option as the site will not function without them. An example of this type are ones which handle shopping baskets or remember where the user is on more complex sites.
  2. Functional: Those which improve the functionality of the site but are not essential. An example of this may be remembering a particular setting such as the language in which the page is to be displayed.
  3. Analytical: Those which benefit the site's owners. An example is the analytical cookies that count and track visitors, see which pages are the most popular and determine what the system capabilities of the user. The former help with determining what is popular and can help a site owner put more effort into the most popular sections of the site, the latter help in determining the best way to present information to the user (for example, is the audience primarily mobile or desktop). Knowing this information allows the site owner to adapt the site to the predominant type of user or, in some cases, to customise the display to the type of device detected.
  4. Advertising: Those to do with third-party advertisers whose adverts appear on the site. This web site does not use external advertising.
