This page describes the cookies policy for iQualify UK, and how we may use cookies to monitor usage patterns across our website. You may wish to print this page.


What is in a cookie?
A cookie is a simple text file that is stored on your computer or mobile device by a website’s server and only that server will be able to retrieve or read the contents of that cookie. Each cookie is unique to your web browser. It will contain some anonymous information such as a unique identifier and the site name and some digits and numbers. It allows a website to remember things like your preferences or whether you are logged into a site to protect your privacy.


What to do if you do not want cookies to be set:
Some people find the idea of a website storing any information on their computer or mobile device intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without their knowledge. Although iQualify UK cookies are quite harmless, you may not, for example, want to see advertising that has been targeted to your interests. If you prefer, it is possible to block some cookies, all cookies, or even cookies that have already been set; but you need to be aware that you might lose some functions of the website.


Web browser cookies
If you do not want to receive cookies, you can modify your browser so that it notifies you when cookies are sent to it or you can refuse cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.

If you wish to restrict or block web browser cookies which are set on your device then you can do this through your browser settings; the Help function within your browser should tell you how.

The iQualify UK website does work without cookies, but you will lose some features and functionality if you choose to disable cookies. For example, you won’t be able to see the iQualify UK banner, which often showcases customer promotions and discounts.


Adobe Flash Player Cookies
The Adobe Flash Player, used to provide and is capable of storing information on your device. However, these cookies cannot be controlled through your web browser. Some web browser manufacturers are developing solutions to allow you to control these through your browser, but at the present time, if you wish to restrict or block Flash Cookies, then you must do this on the Adobe website.

Please be aware that restricting the use of Flash Cookies may affect the features available to you.


Strictly necessary cookies
Some cookies are strictly necessary in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features. Without these cookies, we will not be able to determine the number of unique users of the site or provide certain features.

This cookie is used by iQualify UK to identify you as a user between page loads. This allows us to remember certain settings, like which part of our website you were using before you requested course information. This cookie is destroyed each time you close your browser.

Functionality cookies
Functionality cookies record information about choices you’ve made and allow us to tailor the website to you. For example, if you visit iQualify UK from an email with a special offer, we use cookies to ensure that you are eligible to receive particular offers and promotions. Functionality cookies may also take the form of Flash cookies, which are stored in your Adobe Flash Player rather than your browser. These are used to provide features such as auto-resume on informative web presenter videos, by remembering the point to which you played a programme, and for saving preferences such as your volume setting.

These cookies store your user preferences for customisation features and display features across our website based on information such as your language preference or location.

This cookie allows us to tailor the presentation of our website with features and displays specific to a particular campaign promotion or iQualify UK partnership.
