What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies will not collect information that identifies you, but will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our software.
What sort of cookies does Edukey use?
Generally, our cookies perform up to three different functions:
- Essential cookies
Some cookies are essential for the operation of our software. If you opt to disable these cookies, you will not be able to access or use all of the features that our software incorporates.
- Performance Cookies
We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our software and to monitor performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.
- Functionality Cookies
We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your username every time you use our software, and recall your customisation preferences.
We do use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the three categories above. For example, like many companies, we use Google Analytics to help us monitor our traffic. Please note we do not allow advertising on Edukey sites so there will be no cookies for this purpose.
Can you block cookies?
As we have explained above, cookies help you to get the most out of our software.
However, if you do wish to disable cookies then you can do so by amending the settings within your browser or mobile device. You can find the tools to manage cookies in the ‘preferences’ or ‘tools’ menu of your browser. Use the ‘Help’ option in your browser for more details if unsure.
Please bear in mind that some features on our website/s might not work correctly with cookies disabled.
