What are cookies?
A cookie is a piece of data stored on your computer, mobile phone or tablet when you visit a website. It’s stored within your website browser, and then subsequently sent back to the same website by your browser.
The cookie helps the website to recognise your specific browser and computer when you return.
Cookies on moat.leicester.sch.uk are divided into first-party cookies and third-party cookies.
First party cookies
First-party cookies, such as the Google Analytics cookie or the moat.leicester.sch.uk cookie, only ever send information back to the original provider.
We use first-party cookies to capture anonymous website usage in Google Analytics giving us data that includes the pages that you visit and the documents that you download, how long you spend on pages and how you found our site. By interpreting this data we can anticipate website traffic usage and improve your website experience in terms of being able to find and use the information on the site.
Third party cookies
Third-party cookies use information from other sites, including Twitter and Facebook, to deliver a more personalised experience. For example, if you share on Facebook a lot then you’ll see Facebook as an option to share a page on the moat.leicester.sch.uk.
We use third-party cookies to enable you to use social media functions such as sharing pages on Twitter or Facebook or watching YouTube videos on the website. This also provides us with anonymous data that we can analyse to find how our information is shared outside of the website.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how you use the site.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

By observing these points, the college ensures that visitors to the website cannot link images of students to names of students.
