5.5 Cookies 

A cookie is a small piece of information held in a text file and stored on your computer by this web site in order to make your use of the site simple and unobtrusive and help us understand how the site is used. It is often a unique string of numbers or a set of letters in a text file that takes up very little space. It is stored by your web browser in a special folder for temporary internet files. 

The site uses two types of cookies. The first (called a “session cookie”) is one that is stored only for as long as you visit the site and is then automatically deleted the moment you log out and navigate to a different web site. It helps us identify who you are and therefore show you the information relevant to you, such as courses you are enrolled in or communities you are taking part in.  The second type of cookie is for analytics. It tells us what your web browser is and how long you spent on a page. This also helps us understand whether you are a unique visitor and better understand how the system is being used. From this we can refine the software to improve your experience when using it.

By clicking on the 'accept' button at the bottom of these terms and conditions you are consenting to our use of cookies. If you do not wish to give your consent the system will not work for you, and so we will not be able to log you in. In this case you will be taken to the log in page.

5.6 Web Server Log Files

5.6.1 Internet Protocol (IP) addresses are used by your computer every time you are connected to the Internet. 
5.6.2 Your IP address is a number that is used by computers on the network to identify your computer. IP addresses are automatically collected by our web servers so that data (such as the web pages you request) can be sent to you. 
5.6.3 Web server log files are used to record information about our site, such as system errors. The site also uses log files to monitor traffic. Log files do not contain any personal information or information about which other sites you have visited.

5.8.2 You can see and amend the personal information that we have collected by visiting your 'Profile' page wihtin the system. If you cannot change the content yourself (because it is not editable on screen) then you may request that we do it for you.
