Under data protection law, individuals have a right to be informed about how the school uses any personal data that we hold about them. We comply with this right by providing ‘privacy notices’ (sometimes called ‘fair processing notices’) to individuals where we are processing their personal data.
Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s device. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a user and a website, and can be accessed either by the website or the user’s device. Cookies are created to improve your experience of a website – for example they are needed for online shopping cart systems or for remembering you are logged into a site.
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and in turn improve our website by tailoring it to our customer’s needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and the data contains no personal identifiable information.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not.
