Cookies Policy

Skillsology Cookies Policy

This is the cookies policy of Skillsology which applies to the Website (“Cookies Policy”). This Cookies Policy should be read alongside, and in addition to, the Terms and the Privacy Policy.

This Cookies Policy describes the cookies we use and explains why we use cookies and how we deal with the information collected. It also explains how cookies enable the Website to function properly and why you may not be able to experience the full functionality of the Website and the Services if you disable the use of cookies.

We use cookies to enhance your experience of Skillsology and to better understand how people use the Website. This may also include cookies from third party social media websites. By visiting the Website without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies, but you can change your cookies settings at any time by following the instructions below in section 3: “How to disable cookies”.

Unless otherwise defined in this Cookies Policy, terms used have the same meaning as in the Terms.

What are Cookies?
1.1 Cookies are small, usually randomly encoded, text files that are designed to store basic information (such as visitor preferences). A cookie file is created by the Website browsing and is transmitted and processed by the Web browser software of your computer (or such other device as you use to access the Website including, without limitation, mobile devices and tablets). The resulting file is stored in your Web browser’s installation directory or subfolder (cache). Your Web browser accesses this file when you visit the website that originally created the cookie.

Types of Cookies
2.1 The cookies described below are used to improve the Website and do not contain any personal information that would allow us to identify you (such as your name or other contact details), although the cookies do allow us to distinguish you from other users of the Website, identify repeat visitors, the type of content and sites to which a Visitor or Registered User links, the length of time each Visitor and Registered User spends at any particular area of the Website and the specific functionalities that Visitors and Registered Users choose to use. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse the Website and helps us to improve the Online Courses.

2.2 There are four types of cookies that may be used during your visit to the Website;

2.2.1 Persistent cookies, which are saved on your computer for a fixed period (usually one year or more) and are not deleted when the browser is closed. These help us remember you as a Visitor or Registered User each time you use the same computer to visit the Website;

2.2.2 Session cookies, which are stored only temporarily during a browsing session and are deleted from your device when the browser is closed;

2.2.3 First party cookies, which are set by the Website and can only be read by the Website;

2.2.4 Third party cookies, which are set by a different organisation than us, such as a third party analytics company, who sets its own cookies to perform this service.

2.3 The Website may display video content using Adobe Flash Player. Adobe uses Flash cookies (also known as Local Shared Objects) to help improve your experience as a Visitor or Registered User and save your preferences. Flash cookies are stored on your device in much the same way as usual cookies, but your browser manages them differently. If you wish to disable or delete a Flash cookie, see Adobe Flashplayer Security Settings. Please bear in mind, though, that if you disable Flash cookies for the Website you may be unable to access certain elements of the Website and Services.

2.4 Curated Sources of Linked Sites may also use cookies over which we have no control. For further information on how they use cookies please refer to the cookies policies on their respective websites.

2.5 Third-party advertisers on the Website may use cookies, beacons and other technologies to collect or receive information from www.skillsology.com and elsewhere on the internet to provide measurement services and target advertising. We have no control over cookies placed on the Website by third parties and you should check the relevant third party’s website for more information. You can change your cookie settings at any time by following the advice in paragraph 3 below: “How To Disable Cookies”.
