You can find out more about how to control cookies on the Information Commissioner's Office website.
Cookies are important to make our website work and help us improve it, which helps us realise our vision of a better future for people and planet.
1. Google Analytics and Google Tag Manager
This is a service we use from Google that collects information about how people use our website. We use this to make sure we are providing the best service we can to our web visitors.
Using cookies, Google Analytics stores information about:
what pages you visit
how long you stay on the page
how you came to the site
what things you click on
Although we collect this information, we do not collect any personal information - so we don’t know what your name is or where you live. And the information we collect cannot be used to identify you.
2. Web Content Management System
The content management systems we use to build the website and update the pages also collect information about how many times a page has been visited and how many times a file is downloaded (things like the PDFs of our research reports and briefings).
3. Third-party cookies
4. Cookies that are set by other websites
If you are using the sharing facility already mentioned (i.e. Share content with Facebook, Twitter) then it is possible those websites (i.e. Facebook) may also set a cookie when you are also logged in to their service. Land Based Learning Ltd does not control these type of cookies.
Occasionally we embed things like video, audio and pictures from other websites such as such as YouTube, Vimeo, Flickr or Soundcloud. This means it looks like one of our webpages but the video is being fed through from another site (ie YouTube). This means that every time you visit one of our pages with this sort of embedded content, those other sites may use their own cookies to record that you watched or viewed the content. Land Based Learning Ltd has no control over these cookies so you should check the relevant website for more information.
How to control cookies
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish or delete cookies installed by the site - for more details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. To do so you should modify your browser settings - click on the help section of your Internet browser and follow the instructions. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit the site and some services and functionalities may not work.
