What is a cookie?
A cookie is a piece of data sent to your device from a website. This means the website can recognise your device if you return to the same website. Cookies do not contain any personal information about you and cannot be used to identify an individual user. A cookie often includes a unique identifier, which is an anonymous number (randomly generated) and is stored on your device. Some expire at the end of your website session; others remain on your computer for longer.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example, enabling a service to recognise your device so you don’t have to give the same information several times during one task, e.g. filling out a web form or a web survey.
We only use a very minimal set of site cookies. None of our cookies store or track any personal details. Please be aware that restricting cookies may impact on the functionality of the Shropshire Tutor website
We sometimes embed photos and video content from other websites (for example YouTube) and when you visit a page with content embedded from these sources you may be issued with cookies from these websites.
On many of our pages we embed ‘share buttons’ (from Facebook, Twitter, Google+ etc) to enable our users to easily share our content with their friends through these services. These sites may also set cookies.
