2. What are Cookies?
A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website, when visited by a user, asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Cookies may be set by us (referred to as first-party cookies) or our partners (referred to as third-party cookies).
First-party cookies are those which are set by the web application being visited. For example, a cookie set by ess-readingcloud.co.uk while a user is visiting ess-readingcloud.co.uk would be considered a first-party cookie. Third-party cookies are those which are set by organizations/websites other than the web application being visited. These cookies are often used for analytics, tracking, or advertising. For example, a cookie set by www.google.com while a user is visiting ess-readingcloud.co.uk would be considered a third-party cookie.

We classify cookies into the four categories outlined below:
Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off. They are usually only set in response to actions made by the user which amount to a request for services, such as setting privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. Users can set their browsers to block or alert them about these cookies, but some parts of the site may not function properly.
Performance Cookies: These cookies allow the web application owner to count visits and traffic sources, allowing them to measure and improve the performance of the site. They help the web application owner know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If users do not allow these cookies, the site owner will not know when users have visited the site.
Functionality Cookies: These cookies allow the provision of enhanced functionality and personalization, such as videos and live chats. They may be set by the web application owner or by third party providers whose services have been added to pages of the web application. If you do not allow these cookies, then some or all of these functionalities may not function properly.
Targeting/Advertising Cookies: These cookies are set through a site by advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of users’ interests and show relevant ads on other sites. They work by uniquely identifying a user’s browser and device. If a user does not allow these cookies, he/she will not experience targeted advertising across different websites.
