Cookie Policy

Scope

This text describes the cookies policy for IPS International, and how we may use cookies to monitor usage patterns across the IPS Apprenticeships and IPS International websites.

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. 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 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.

Types of cookies 

We use the following types of cookies:

Essential cookies 

These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with the services available through our website and we will automatically enable and use cookies for this purpose.

Non-essential cookies 

Performance and functionality cookies

These cookies are used to enhance the performance and functionality. However, without these cookies, certain functionality may become unavailable. We will ask you to accept these types of cookies before processing them.

Analytics and customisation cookies

These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate to help us understand how our websites are being used or how effective our marketing campaigns are, or to help us customise our website for you. We will ask you to accept these types of cookies before processing them.

Advertising/marketing cookies

These cookies are used to make advertising messages more relevant to you. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing. We will ask you to accept these types of cookies before processing them.

Social networking cookies

These cookies are used to enable you to share pages and content that you find interesting on our website through third party social networking and other websites. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes too. We will ask you to accept these types of cookies before processing them.

What to do if you do not want non-essential cookies to be processed 

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 IPS International cookies are quite harmless, you may not want us to process them.

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. Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org, which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of desktop browsers.

The IPS International website will 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 homepage banner, which often showcases customer promotions and discounts.
