Cookie Policy

Cookies are files stored in your browser and are used by most websites to help personalise your web experience. None of our cookies contain any personally identifiable information. Some features on this site will not function if you do not allow cookies. We have categorised the cookies used on aylesbury.ac.uk based on the UK International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) categorisation guidelines as follows:

"Strictly Necessary" cookies

These types of cookies are necessary in order for our websites to function and cannot be disabled without also disabling access to the sites. They provide protection against cross-site request forgery attacks and allow our content management system to deliver pages accurately.

"Performance" cookies

We use these types of cookies to analyse and improve the performance of our sites. The kind of data they store includes aggregated and anonymised user data, as well as things like browser versions, screen sizes, and visit length. We use third party services, including Google Analytics and Hotjar, to deliver this functionality. Use of our website indicates your consent for us to use these cookies. You can opt-out of Google Analytics here.

Given that many of these cookies come from third party sources, we cannot control exactly which cookies are used.

"Functionality" cookies

These types of cookies allow for specific functionality, such as remembering choices you made in a form submission so you don't have to re-enter the same information when using the form again, or for restarting a video from the same place you stopped it on a prior page view. Currently we do not use any functionality cookies directly on aylesbury.ac.uk, though some third parties such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Google etc. may save these kinds of cookies on your computer depending on your browser settings. Use of our website indicates your consent for third parties to add these cookies.

"Targeting/Advertising" cookies

These types of cookies are typically used to show you more relevant adverts based on your activity. We do not currently employ these types of cookies on aylesbury.ac.uk.
