Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy explains how the Fashion Retail Academy (“FRA”) uses cookies and other tracking technologies through our website https://www.fashionretailacademy.ac.uk. This Cookie Policy is to be read alongside the FRA’s Privacy Policy which explains how FRA uses personal information. If you do not accept our use of cookies please disable them following our guidance below.

What are web cookies?

Web cookies are small files that are placed on your computer or mobile device by a website when you visit it. They contain details of your browsing history on that website and distinguish you from other users. Cookies send data back to the originating website on each subsequent visit or allow another website to recognise the cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user’s device and, for instance, remember your preferences and generally improve your online user experience. Like most websites, the FRA’s website uses cookies.

Although this Policy refers to the general term “cookie”, which is the main method used by our website to store information, the browser’s local storage space is also used for the same purpose and we may use other tracking technologies through this website such as web beacons. As a result, the information included in this Cookie Policy is likewise applicable to all such tracking technologies that we use.

You can find out more about cookies at www.allaboutcookies.org.

Why do we use cookies?

  1. To let you do things on our website – for example, cookies enable you to log in to secure areas of our website, fill in application forms or order products like prospectuses.
  1. To collect anonymous statistics – the information collected by cookies enables us to improve the website through usage figures and patterns. For example, it is really useful to see which pages of the website – and therefore which of our services – are the most popular and how users are interacting with them.
  1. To improve your experience of our website – for example, to prevent you having to re-enter details when you have already done so, or by ensuring that users can find what they are looking for easily.
  1. Marketing: marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites and display adverts that are relevant and engaging for the individual user.
