Privacy and Cookies
The Learning Records Service website, with the exception of registration for the newsletter, does not capture or store personal information.
This website merely logs the user's IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which part of our website you visit and how long you spend there. In common with many others, this website may use a standard technology called a 'cookie' to collect information about how you use the site. This is a small data file that certain websites write to your hard drive when you visit them. A cookie file can contain information such as a user ID that the site uses to track the pages you've visited, but the only personal information a cookie can contain is information you supply yourself. A cookie can't read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites.
If you register to receive newsletter your information will be held on a secure server and the data will not be shared with any organisations outside government. It will be used only to provide you with email updates on the topics you have requested or postal information if you request that method. If you respond online to a consultation exercise your data will only be used to facilitate the analysis of responses and will be deleted subsequently.
When we provide services, we want to make them easy, useful and
reliable. Where services are delivered on the internet, this sometimes
involves placing small amounts of information on your device, for
example, computer or mobile phone. These include small files known as
cookies. They cannot be used to identify you personally.
These pieces of information are used to improve services for you through, for example:
- enabling a service to recognise your device so you don't have to give the same information several times during one task
- recognising that you may already have given a username and password so you don't need to do it for every web page requested
- measuring how many people are using services, so they can be made
easier to use and there's enough capacity to ensure they are fast
You can manage these small files yourself and learn more about them through Internet browser cookies - what they are and how to manage them (external link)
Below is further information on the cookie name, how the cookie information is used and the length of time a cookie is active.
