What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie helps the website to recognize
your device the next time you visit and to remember your actions and preferences over a period of time, so you don’t have to keep re-entering them whenever you
come back to the site or browse from one page to another. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way. There
are many functions cookies serve. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyze how well Penda Learning is performing.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies will
not collect information that identifies you, but will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use Penda Learning.
What sort of cookies does Penda Learning use?
Generally, our cookies perform up to three different functions:
- Essential cookies - Some cookies are essential for the operation of Penda Learning. If you opt to disable these cookies, you will not be able to access or use all of
the features that Penda Learning incorporates.
- Performance Cookies - We utilize other cookies to analyze how our visitors use Penda Learning and to monitor performance. This allows us to provide a high
quality experience by customizing our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep
track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.
- Functionality Cookies - We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, cookies save you the trouble of typing in your
username every time you use Penda Learning, and recall your preferences.
We do use or allow third parties to serve cookies that fall into the three categories above. For example, Penda Learning uses Google Analytics software to monitor
website behavior to enhance our service offering. This software will save a cookie to your device in order to track and monitor your engagement and usage of the
cookies to help us with market research, revenue tracking, improving site functionality and monitoring compliance with our terms and conditions and copyright
policy. Please note we do not allow advertising on Penda Learning so there will be no cookies for this purpose.
Can you block cookies?
As we have explained above, cookies help you to get the most out of Penda Learning. However, if you do wish to disable cookies then you can do so by amending
the settings within your browser or mobile device. Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies, you may find that certain sections of Penda Learning
will not work properly.
