Cookie Policy

1. What are cookies?
A “cookie” is a piece of information, like a tag, which some websites create on your computer/mobile phone which identifies your computer/mobile phone whenever you visit that website. In order to provide you with the best possible online experience, Akademi may create cookies when you visit akademi.co.uk, whether this is on your mobile or your computer. Cookies help us to arrange content to match your preferred interests, and may in future take into account your Akademi customisations. They’re also used by most major websites. You may also find that some third party sites use cookies – sites such as YouTube – when you view an embedded video, or Social Networks such as Facebook and Twitter. These third parties are responsible for setting their own cookie and privacy policies

2. What are cookies used for? 
Partners of Akademi, who assist in the serving and targeting of advertisements, promotions and other marketing messages, may also use cookies to collect anonymous data such as how many people have viewed a particular page each day. This information can also be used to limit the amount an existing Akademi customer is served advertising. It’s important to note that cookies don’t harm your computer and don’t store personal information about you, such as email or home address. Rather, they store encrypted information which can access this information, helping to improve your Akademi experience.
In order to help you, cookies may be used to: – Limit the frequency with which you will see particular advertisements or announcements from Akademi on our website;

  • Keep track of how many times you do specific things, such as liking or sharing articles
  • Track where you have come from if you were referred to our website
  • Make our content more relevant to you by taking into account your response to previous, similar content

3.  These cookies are used by Akademi to maintain personal preferences
Our website uses both ‘session’ and ‘persistent’ cookies. Session cookies keep track of you while you navigate, and persistent cookies recognise you when you visit.

4. How do I manage cookies? 
You can accept or decline cookies. Most computers automatically accept them but you can modify your browser settings to decline them if you wish. Each browser is different, so check the ‘Help’ menu of your browser (or your mobile phone’s manual) to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
If you decline cookies, some aspects of the Akademi site may not work on your computer/mobile phone and you may not be able to access areas you want on the website. For this reason we recommend that you accept cookies.
