We track two types of cookies: Temporary and Persistent
A temporary cookie is used to keep track of your "session". Without that temporary cookie (which is not stored after you quit your browser) you would have to log on every time you access a new page.
A persistent cookie is stored on your device. They help us provide you with user preferences, settings and information for future visits on our Platform. Persistent cookies allow convenient and easy access to familiar variables such as facilitating preferences such as favourites, bookmarks or language preferences. They can also be used to assess browsing behaviour.
Various cookies do different things, including:
Absolutely necessary cookies

The cookie will expire once you close your browser unless you tick "Keep me signed in for today", in which case the cookie will be stored on your computer for 24 hours after which it will expire.
Traffic Management Cookie

Cookie Options Cookie
This cookie is used to save whether or not you consent to other cookies being used. It is not used to track or invade your privacy, but instead there for us to remember your privacy settings. If you delete this cookie your Manchester Academy privacy options will reset back to default and you will be shown a message at the bottom of the window asking you if you'd like to change your privacy options.
Targeting and advertising cookies track browsing habits and are used to deliver targeted (interest-based) advertising. They can also limit the number of times you see an ad and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually placed on our Site by third party advertising networks with our permission. They remember that you have visited a Site and this information is shared with other organisations, such as advertisers.
