This privacy statement and cookies policy covers any data that we collect about you (“personally identifiable data”) either through the University of Buckingham website (“the site”) or in any other dealings with you and the uses we intend to make of that data.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a website’s computer and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.

|These are Google Analytics cookies to collect information on how visitors use our site and to help us target areas of the site for improvement. The information collected is anonymous, but allows us to track how many visitors we have had to the site and how they arrived at our site.

|MoodleSession, MoodleSessionTest, MOODLEID_||vle.buckingham.ac.uk||Our Virtual Learning Platform uses Moodle which requires the MoodleSession cookie in order work. This cookie is deleted when you leave the site.
The MOODLEID_ records the username you logged in as last time you visited the site so is not necessary, but makes the login process easier.
The MoodleSessionTest cookie is used by the version of Moodle we currently have installed, but will be removed when we upgrade to the very latest version of Moodle during the June 2012 vacation.
