What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file placed by an online service provider (such as onetooneenglish.co.uk or onetoonebusinessenglish.co.uk) on the browsing devices of visitors to their website. Cookies can enable certain functions of a website, collect information about visitor's habits in using that website, gather data to help improve or personalise the service offered to website visitors, store a user's preferences, or enable social network features. We cannot identify you as an individual through cookies alone when you visit our site.
Types of cookies
When you visit our site different types of cookies may be placed upon your computer or other device. Cookies are considered to either be first-party or third-party, and either session or persistent cookies.
Third-party cookies are cookies placed on your device by a third-party technology or company which we partner with. For example, a third-party cookie is used to enable users to chat live with a Course Advisor.
The time between when you open your internet browser and close your browser is called a browser session. Session cookies are cookies that are placed onto your device during a browser session, but which expire and are normally deleted at the end of a browser session. Session cookies help us track use of our site in order to make improvements to help users use our site more efficiently.
Persistent cookies are cookies which remain active and are not deleted after a browser session finishes. Instead, they remain on a user's device until either deleted or they reach a pre-determined expiry date, which could range from 1 day to 5 years from when they were placed on the device. Persistent cookies allow us to recognise your device when it is used to access our site across different browser sessions so that personalisations to your experience are consistent. Persistent cookie are also used, both by ourselves and third-party partners, for analytical purposes.

You can also configure your browser so that a message appears each time a cookie could potentially be stored on your device asking you whether you wish to accept or reject it. Additionally, your browser should be able to provide you with a list of all cookies that have been stored on your device by a particular website, and offer you the option to remove individual cookies or all cookies. For further information, please consult the Help section of your browser.
It is important to recognise that any changes you make to your cookie settings or saved cookies are likely to make browsing our websites a less satisfying experience. If you refuse permission to us to store cookies on your device, or if you delete those cookies that are already stored, you might find you are not able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.
