What is a 'cookie'?

A 'cookie' is a text file containing a small amount of information which our server downloads to your personal computer when you visit our website. The file contains a unique number so that our server knows which computer it is talking to.

Cookies in themselves do not identify the individual user, just the computer used. They allow us to monitor and analyse website traffic. Cookies themselves only record which areas of the site have been visited by the computer in question, and for how long. Allowing us to create a cookie does not give us access to the rest of your computer and we will not use cookies to track your online activity once you leave our site. Cookies are read only by the server that placed them, and are unable to execute any code or virus.

Some cookies are allocated to your computer only for the duration of your visit to a website, and these are called session-based cookies. These are automatically deleted when you close your browser.

We use the following cookies for the following reasons:

We create a session-based cookie when you use our online Application Form to register for a course. We also use a session-based cookie to know whether you have logged in as an Old Student or not. 

Google Analytics cookies: _utma, _utmb, _utmc, _utmz

These cookies allow us to count page visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site, using a service provided by Google Analytics. For more information about Google's privacy policy, please use this link: www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy
