12. Cookies Policy - Information WetWetWet Swim School collects from you

a. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device'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 website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.

Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the website to your interests. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of www.wetwetwetswimschool.co.uk features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

During the course of any visit to www.wetwetwetswimschool.co.uk, the pages you see, along with a cookie, are downloaded to your device. Many websites do this, because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether the device (and probably its user) has visited the website before. This is done on a repeat visit by checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

b. How does WetWetWet Swim School use cookies?

Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. For example: if on a previous visit you went to our ‘Swim Squad’ pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight updated ‘Swim Squad’ information on your second and subsequent visits.

WetWetWet Swim School from time to time uses a number of independent measurement and research companies. They gather information regarding the visitors to WetWetWet Swim School sites on our behalf using cookies, log file data and code which is embedded on our website. WetWetWet Swim School uses this type of information to help improve the services it provides to its users. WetWetWet Swim School requires that third parties comply strictly with its instruction (see paragraph 6 above).
