A cookie is a small, temporary file that stores information about a specific user’s device, such as your laptop or phone when browsing a website.
Our website needs cookies to make it work properly. They help you move around the website and do things you’ve specifically come to the website for
Our cookies have now been set in your browser, and by continuing to use our website you’ll be telling us you’re ok with that.
There are four categories of cookies:
Session Cookies: these track your actions and expire once you close your browser.
Persistent Cookies: these track your actions and do not expire once your browser has closed, and can track your actions over multiple sites.
First Party Cookies: cookies from the site you have visited.
Third Party Cookies: cookies from 3rd party sites come through sites you’ve visited but not from the owner of the site, such as adverts.
We only use first party and session cookies as well as cookies from the main social networks, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn on our website. A first party cookie from this website is a cookie that is given to your device by our domain (www.thearcheracademy.org.uk). A first party cookie differs from a session cookie in that the cookie itself stores a file on your computer or device rather than in your browser.
By storing the cookie outside the browser the cookie can retain data after the browser has closed and that can be used when you next visit our site.
We’re constantly improving our website based on what our visitors do and the pages that are looked at.
Our cookies for analytics which are also first party cookies record anonymous information about visits and clicks on each web page.
We use this to identify things that are going well, and things that we can improve upon. Our analytics sets or updates cookies only to collect data required for the reports.
So, these helpful cookies keep our website running smoothly and make it work for all of our visitors. If you want more detail, you can read more about our cookies.
