    What are Cookies

    Cookies are very small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit some websites. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie.

    Our cookies don't send us back any information about your computer, or any other information on your hard drive.

    Why we use Cookies

    We use cookies to help identify your computer so we can tailor your user experience, such as remembering your preferences.

    We use the information collected through cookies to:

    • - administer LRN Websites for internal operations, including troubleshooting purposes;
    • - ensure that content from LRN Websites are presented in the most effective manner for you and your devices;
    • - keep LRN Websites safe and secure;
    • - measure or understand the effectiveness of our advertising; and
    • - make suggestions and recommendations about products or services that may interest you.

    Cookies identify your web browser, but not you. Cookies enable our system to recognise your browser and maintain your status whilst using our websites.

    Certain features on the LRN Websites require cookies in order to function.

    Managing Cookies

    Most Internet browsers are pre-set to accept cookies. If you prefer not to receive cookies, you may adjust your Internet browser to disable cookies, or to warn you when cookies are used.

    By disabling cookies, you will not be able to participate in some of the features offered by LRN Websites.


  7. Social Media and Plug-Ins


    LRN Websites use social plug-ins (“plug-ins”) from the social media networks Facebook (www.facebook.com), Google+ (plus.google.com) and Twitter (www.twitter.com).

    On some pages of LRN Websites, or when you use any of the LRN social media channels, third parties that provide content, applications or plug-ins through LRN Websites may track your use of content, applications and plug-ins, or customize content, applications and plug-ins for you. 

    Facebook

    LRN Websites use plugins provided by the social network facebook.com, operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”).

    The plugins are identifiable by a Facebook logo (white letter f on blue background or a thumb up icon) or the notice “Facebook Social Plugin”. For a full list of all social Plugins please see http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.

    When you visit a page of LRN Websites that contains a social plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. Facebook directly transfers the plugin content to your browser, which embeds the latter into the website, enabling Facebook to receive information that you have accessed the respective page of LRN Websites. LRN has no influence on the data gathered by the plugin.

    The embedded plugins provide Facebook with the information that You have accessed the corresponding page of LRN Websites. If you are logged into Facebook, your visit can be assigned to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking “Like”, or entering a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to Facebook and stored by Facebook. Even if you are not logged into Facebook, there is possibility that the plugins transmit your IP-address to Facebook.

    For the information on the purpose and scope of data collection and procession by Facebook, as well as your rights in this respect and settings options for protecting your privacy please visit Facebook's privacy policy: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

    If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to LRN Websites with your member data already stored by Facebook, please log off Facebook before entering LRN Websites. You can also block Facebook social Plugins by using add-ons for your browser, like the “AdBlock Plus“.

    Google+

    LRN Websites use the "+1″ button provided by the social network Google Plus that is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). The button is identifiable through the "+1″ sign on a white or coloured background.

    When you visit a page of LRN Websites that contain such a plugin, your browser connects directly with the servers of Google. The content of the "+1″ plugin is transmitted directly to your browser from Google, which is then used to incorporate it into the website. LRN has no influence on the data gathered by the plugin through the button.

    According to Google, if one does not click on the button, no personal data is collected. Such data, including the IP address, is only collected and processed for logged-in members.

    The purpose and extent of data collection, the further processing and use of data by Google, as well as your rights in this regard and the various possible settings to protect your privacy can be found in Google's data protection guidelines concerning the "+1" button: 

    http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html

    If You are a Google Plus member and do not wish for Google to use our Internet presence as a way to collect information about you and to link this information with the membership data about you which Google has stored, then you must log out of Google Plus before visiting LRN Websites.

    Twitter

    LRN Websites use the “Twitter Tweet Button” provided by MediaSift Ltd, Building L033, London Road, University of Reading, Reading, RG1 5AQ, United Kingdom. The button can be recognized by its twitter logo (a white "t" on a blue background or a white "little bird", both perhaps connected with the addition of "Tweet").

    With the “Twitter Tweet Button”, Twitter users can share LRN Websites via Twitter. The button also shows the number of tweets for each comment made.

    When you visit a page on LRN Websites that includes such a plugin, your browser connects directly with the servers at MediaSift. The content of the “Twitter Tweet Button” is transferred from MediaSift directly to your browser, which incorporates it into the website. LRN has no influence on the amount of data gathered by MediaSift through this plugin, and provide this information to the best of our knowledge, which is that only the IP address of your connection and the URL of our page are transmitted when the button is acquired, but are not used for purposes other than display of the button.


  8. Web Analytics and External Websites


    Where LRN Websites provide links to other websites, these links are provided for information purposes only. The other websites are outside our control, and are not subject to this Privacy Policy.

    LRN Websites use the tracking software Google Analytics to help us analyse your use of the websites, content and services. It is a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics also uses cookies.

    The information generated by the cookie about your use of LRN Websites is transmitted to, and stored by, Google on servers in the United States. Google Analytics does not identify individual users or associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. We use reports provided by Google Analytics to help us understand website traffic and webpage usage.

    By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner described in Google’s Privacy Policy and for the purposes set out above. 

    You may refuse the use of Google Analytics by disabling the cookies, or by using the opt-out service provided by Google: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.


  9. Personal Information Security


    LRN is committed to the protection of your personal information from unauthorized access. We use a range of security mechanisms and procedures to protect the personal information we hold about you.

    LRN makes all reasonable efforts to ensure your personal information is stored securely both in electronic and physical forms, and complies with the APPs.

    The website pages from which you may forward to us personal information are encrypted through a password protected portal using 128 bit SSL encryption. However, there may be risks associated when transferring your personal information to us from other internet facilities or by email.

    Personal information that is no longer required will be destroyed in accordance with the legislation and APPs.


  10. Access to Personal Information

    LRN will not charge you for making requests to access any information held about you, however, we reserve the right to undertake cost recovery for the provision of such information where it is justified.

    If there is a reason for not granting you access to your information, we will provide you with a written explanation of the reasons for the refusal (unless unreasonable to do so) and inform you of the mechanisms to complain about the refusal.
