B11 Education Ltd (part of Premier Education Group plc) | Cookie Policy

Our website uses cookies to help us to monitor traffic through our website using Google Analytics. All data is anonymous and no personal data is collected.

By using the B11 Education website, you consent to our use of cookies in accordance with the terms of this policy.

 

ABOUT COOKIES

Cookies are files, often including unique identifiers, that are sent by web servers to web browsers, and which may then be sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server.

Cookies can be used by web servers to identity and track users as they navigate different pages on a website, and to identify users returning to a website.

Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

 

COOKIES ON THIS WEBSITE

Google Analytics

Google Analytics Cookies on this website use the following names:

_utma
_utmb
_utmc
_utmz

The cookies named __utma through __utmz come from websites that use Google Analytics, which primarily uses it to track visits.

Cookies do not contain any information that personally identifies you, but personal information that we store about you may be linked, by us, to the information stored in and obtained from cookies.

We may use the information we obtain from your use of our cookies for the following purposes:

(1) to track you as you navigate our website;
(2) to analyse the use of our website;

__utmz stores where a visitor came from (search engine, search keyword, link)
__utma stores each user’s amount of visits, and the time of the first visit, the previous visit, and the current visit (presumably partly for double checking of this information).
__utmb and __utmc are used to check approximately how long you stay on a site: when a visit starts, and approximately ends (c expires quickly). If you look at cookie state changes (e.g. using firecookie), you will see these change regularly.
