This Cookies Policy was last updated on 22nd September, 2021.

To make full use of the Website, your computer or mobile device will need to accept cookies to function effectively and provide you with personalised features on the Website.

These cookies may record

  • The name of the domain from which you accessed the internet
  • The date and time you accessed the Website
  • The advert or internet address of the Website from which you linked directly to the website
  • The pages you accessed while visiting the Website
  • The device from which you accessed the Website

Nurturing Childhoods aims to make our website informative and user friendly and we use cookies to help us achieve this.  We do this by using them to help identify and track visitors, usage, and access preferences for our Services, as well as track and understand email campaign effectiveness and to deliver targeted ads.

A cookie is a string of information that a website stores on a visitor’s computer, and that the visitor’s browser provides to the website each time the visitor returns. Companies use cookies to personalise or enhance your user experience, they cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.  Some cookies are essential, while others help us to improve your experience by providing insights into how our website is being used.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. For example, if you personalise a web page, or navigate within a site, a cookie helps the site to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. Hence, this simplifies the process of delivering relevant content and eases site navigation by providing and saving your preferences and login information as well as providing personalised functionality.

Service providers acting on our behalf (like Google Analytics and third-party advertisers) use server log files and automated data collection tools like cookies, tags, scripts, customised links, device or browser fingerprints, and web beacons (together, “Data Collection Tools“) when you access and use the Services. These Data Collection Tools automatically track and collect certain System Data and Usage Data when you use the Services. In some cases, we tie data gathered through those Data Collection Tools to other data that we collect as described in the Privacy Policy.

We use cookies to collect, store, and share data about your activities on the website. They allow us to remember things about your visit, like the courses you accessed and your progress within them, making the site easier for you to use.

Necessary cookies 

These enable core functionality such as page navigation and access to secure areas. The website cannot function properly without these cookies and can only be disabled by changing your browser preferences.  The software that runs the Website uses cookies for technical purposes needed by the internal workings of our servers and application. For instance, we use cookies to keep track of information about a user’s session and determine which options or pages to display for the site to function.

Functional purposes

Functional purpose cookies store information that is needed by our applications to process and operate. For example, where requests within an application involve multiple stages, cookies are used to store the information from each stage temporarily, to facilitate completion of the overall request.

Analytical cookies

We use analytical cookies that allow us to recognise, measure and track visitors to the website. This helps us to improve and develop the way the Website works, for example, by determining whether site visitors can find information easily, identifying the aspects of the Website that are of the most interest to them or the actions they take when visiting. 

Usage preferences

Some of the cookies on the Website are activated when visitors make a choice about their usage of the Website. The Website then ‘remembers’ the settings preferences of the user concerned. This allows us to tailor aspects of the Website to the individual user.

Social sharing cookies

We use some social sharing plugins to allow you to share certain pages of our website on social media.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting so that you will not receive cookies or delete those already on your computer.  The instructions for removing cookies from your computer or mobile device depend on the operating system and web browser you use. Please note, however, that withdrawing your agreement to the use of cookies may disable some of the functionality on our website.  To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set, visit www.aboutcookies.org or www.allaboutcookies.org. For more information about Google Analytics and cookies (including information on how to opt out), please check Google’s Privacy Policy and information on installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on.

We regularly review and, where necessary, update our Cookie Policy. If we make any material change to it, we will notify you via email, through a notification posted on the Services, or as required by applicable law. We will also include a summary of the key changes. Unless stated otherwise, modifications will become effective on the day they are posted.

As permitted by applicable law, if you continue to use the Services after the effective date of any change, then your access and/or use will be deemed an acceptance of (and agreement to follow and be bound by) the revised Cookie Policy. The revised Cookie Policy supersedes all previous Cookie Policies.
