Third Parties

While we take all reasonable precautions to make sure that other organisations who we deal with have good security practices, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of other organisations whose websites may be linked to our service, or whose contact details we may provide on our website.

We are also not responsible for the privacy practices of social media providers with whom the College has pages or accounts.

We use a number of third party services to provide us with information on the use of our website, associated external resources and to provide you with relevant advertising. These services fall into two distinct groups: web analytics and advertising. Web analytics cookies collect aggregate data about how visitors arrive at and use our site and our content hosted on other sites. The College does not currently have advertising on its website. If this were to change, this policy would be updated to give you information on additional cookies being used.
