When you visit this website [https://www.teachingathome.co.uk], we collect common internet log information and details of our visitor behavioural patterns.

What’s a cookie?

A cookie is a bit of information that a website transfers to your computer’s hard disk so that the website can remember your computer. On their own, they can’t be used to identify you. They’re there to make websites work more efficiently. They also ensure that we provide effective security when you use our website.

Most websites use cookies of some kind to help them arrange content to match your interests faster. For example when you return to a shopping site that you previously visited and it shows you what you looked at last time, that is a cookie doing its job. Usually a cookie contains the name of the domain it comes from, its expiry time and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.

We use three types of cookies on this website:

Session Cookies: These stay in the cookie file of your browser, such as Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Fire Fox or Safari, until you close the browser.

Persistent Cookies: These are stored on your computer until the end of their expiry time, or you manually remove them. They store your personal preferences, such as the language you use, so the site doesn’t need to check each time. They help to remember things e.g. if we have asked you to complete an online form, so we don’t ask you to do it again every time you visit the site.

Third party cookies: We work with third parties who help us to understand how people use our website (e.g. Google analytics), as well as to assess how effective advertising and promotions have been on other websites. To do this, they may place a cookie on your computer. This won’t contain any personal information that anyone else could read and understand.
