Cookies used by St Anne’s College on our website

All of our webpages use “cookies”.  Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by the websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

Different types of cookies have different purposes and operate for different amounts of time.

  • Session cookies are stored in temporary files on your device and are erased form your device when you close your browser.  Session cookies allow websites to link the actions of a website visitor during single browser session, so that any page changes or selections are remembered as you move form page to page.  For example, session cookies will make sure items you put into virtual ‘shopping baskets’ are transferred to ‘checkout’, or keep you logged in as you move within private sections of a website.
  • Persistent cookies are stored on your device between browser sessions, either for a long term or time-limited period.  They are only deleted when they either ’expire’ or when you or your browser delete cookies from your device.  Persistent cookies are used so that a website ‘remembers’ inputs and settings, including recalling log on data so that you do not have to log in again when you next visit..  Persistent cookies may also recall which areas of a website interested you, in order to help you access those areas more easily in the future.  They may also be used to collect data about your interests, choices, and other organisations and websites that you visit, in order to create a profile enabling marketing materials to be appropriately targeted.
  • Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user. For details of any third party cookies we include in our domain, please consult the table below.

Most web browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org.
