What are cookies?

Cook­ies are text files that are stored by your inter­net brows­er (i.e. Microsoft Edge, Chrome, Fire­fox, etc) on your com­put­er or mobile device. They allow web­sites to remem­ber any per­son­al details or set­tings you’ve applied dur­ing your vis­it. Once cre­at­ed, a web­site can use cook­ies to per­son­alise your sub­se­quent vis­its by dis­play­ing your name or rec­om­mend­ing con­tent it thinks you may like, for instance.

How does GLIL use cookies?

The GLIL web­site uses three types of cookie:

  • Acces­si­bil­i­ty cookies
  • Anony­mous ana­lyt­ics cookies
  • Sys­tem cookies

Acces­si­bil­i­ty cookies

The acces­si­bil­i­ty cook­ies remem­ber the set­tings you select­ed, such as the text size. If you have sight prob­lems the text resiz­er allows you to increase or decrease the font size – the cook­ie enables us to remem­ber this setting.

Anony­mous ana­lyt­ics cookies

Ana­lyt­ics cook­ies enable us to col­lect anony­mous infor­ma­tion about the way you use the GLIL site. They help us track which infor­ma­tion is being viewed most fre­quent­ly. The cook­ies can­not be used to iden­ti­fy indi­vid­u­als; they are used for sta­tis­ti­cal pur­pos­es only. Infor­ma­tion col­lect­ed dur­ing your vis­it includes:

  • The num­ber of times you’ve vis­it­ed our web­site before
  • When you arrived/​left our website
  • Your geo­graph­ic location
  • The search engine you may have used to reach the GLIL website
  • Any links you click on

Sys­tem cookies

Sys­tem cook­ies are used by the soft­ware that runs the GLIL web­site. These sys­tem cook­ies do not con­tain any per­son­al infor­ma­tion and are required to run the site.

How do I turn off cookies?

It is pos­si­ble to stop your brows­er accept­ing cook­ies, or to stop it accept­ing cook­ies from a par­tic­u­lar web­site. All mod­ern inter­net browsers allow you to change your cook­ie set­tings. These set­tings will typ­i­cal­ly be found in the options’ or pref­er­ences’ menu of your brows­er. In order to under­stand these set­tings, the fol­low­ing pages of guid­ance may be help­ful, oth­er­wise you should use the Help’ option in your brows­er to find out more.
