What are cookies?

A cookie is a small data file that is placed and stored on your device (computer, smartphone, tablet etc) when you visit a website. When you visit explorelearning.co.uk we may automatically collect information that allows us to recognise and remember you through cookies.

How do we use cookies?

We use cookies in a variety of ways:

  • Understanding how you use our site
  • Analysing our communication with you
  • Working with third party companies to serve you relevant advertising on other sites

 

What types of cookies do we use?

There are three main types that require consent.

  • Functionality cookies – these allow you to navigate the site and use our features, such as the members’ area and ‘find a centre’ location search.
  • Analytics or performance cookies – these cookies allow us to measure and analyse how our customers use the site, to improve both its functionality and your experience.
  • Targeting or advertising cookies – these are used to deliver adverts relevant to you and help us measure the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns.

Further information on our use of advertising cookies

We partner with a number of organisations that may use cookies, pixels and similar technology. They may collect information about how you have used our website. We sometimes use information such as your IP address and browser type and we may share some of these with third parties for advertising purposes.

Social Media

There are times when we want to reach Explore Learning users on social media to market our products, services and competitions. For example, we place a pixel on our web pages that allows Facebook to place cookies on web browsers. When an Explore Learning website user who uses Facebook returns to Facebook, they can be served relevant marketing messages from us.

Retargeting

Online retargeting allows our advertising partners and third-party websites to show you advertising based on your browsing patterns and interactions with other sites. The use of cookies may mean that when you are on another site, you may be shown advertising based on what you have looked at on explorelearning.co.uk. Third-party websites may use retargeting cookies and similar technologies to personalise adverts you see.

We may share identification details, such as email addresses, with search engine providers and social media platforms so that we can tailor our communications to the right audience. The providers of these platforms do not see your data, and only match it to information you have already provided to them. If no information is matched, your data isn’t used.

If you do not wish us to share your email address with third-parties, so that we can show you personalised online adverts as described above, please email [email protected] and your opt out will be processed within 30 days.
