What are Cookies?
A cookie is essentially a small piece of data containing a limited piece of pertinent information – such as a username and password, for example. The aim of cookies is to help make it easier for you to browse between different web pages, remember site preferences and log-in details, and generally help encourage a better experience when visiting a website. They are also used for the purposes of personalising advertising you’re shown, based on your browsing history, in the hope of serving you ads more closely tailored to your interests. Cookies are also used for tracking website visitor metrics, such as the number of visitors to a website, the time spent on the website, and the pages they interacted with.
Cookies contain no personal data, and cannot be used to personally identify you.
The Lead Academy website also has certain payment facilities, which employ Cookies to remember the details of your order between page clicks. This allows you to keep something in your basket and continue browsing the site until you’re ready to check out.
Additionally, Lead Academy also serves questionnaires and surveys in order to improve our understanding of the way our visitors use the website and to provide them with helpful tools. These surveys sometimes rely on cookies to remember which visitors have already completed a survey.
Cookies can also be deployed when data is sent through certain web forms, including contact pages, so they can remember user details for the purposes of allowing ongoing correspondence.
Lastly, to ensure the Lead Academy website provides the best possible visitor experience we allow users the chance to establish their own site preferences. Through using cookies they can be remembered each time they visit, helping to provide a more personalised and engaging browsing experience.
