Like most websites we use 'cookies' to collect anonymous statistics about how people use the site, and to help us keep it relevant for the user.

A cookie is a simple text file that's stored on your computer or mobile device by a website's server. Only that server can retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. So if we put a cookie on your computer, it cannot be read by any other website.

We use two types of cookie:

  • 'session cookies' last as long as your current visit to the site, or for up to a limited amount of time if you keep the site open without using it. They mean you don't have to keep re-submitting information as you move through the site or carry out transactions.
  • 'persistent cookies' remember information from previous visits, for example names and details for online forms. They are used to collect anonymous statistics about how many people use the site, and to maintain any settings (such as accessibility) you have changed.

Cookies 'remember' bits of information from your visit to the site and help improve things by:

  • remembering settings, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you visit a new page
  • remembering information you’ve given so you don’t need to keep entering it
  • measuring how you use the website so we can make sure it meets your needs

Our cookies are not used to identify you personally. They’re just here to make the site work better for you. 

Indeed, you can manage and/or delete these small files as you wish.

How we use cookies to collect statistics...

To improve and monitor the effectiveness of our service we may collect anonymous web statistics using programmes called Google Analytics and Site Improve.

They store cookies on users' computers or mobiles devices to tell us how many people have visited each web page, how they got there, and where they navigated to from there. The data collected is completely anonymous and does not store any personal details.  We do not allow Google to use or share our analytics data.

You can opt out of Google Analytics cookies by visiting this page on Google.

Changing your cookie settings...

You can change your computer settings at any time to accept all cookies, to notify you when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies. How you do this depends on your web browser.  The majority of browsers will allow the user to alter the settings used for cookies. The help menu on your browser will have further details. Please remember that turning cookies off may restrict your access to teach-manchester.org
