Cookie policy 
 

Kaplan International Pathways is committed to maintaining the privacy of your personal information. If you would like to find out more about how we handle your personal information, please see  our privacy policy  here.  

 

What is 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 anonymous information such as a unique identifier as well as the site name.   

  

Cookies do lots of different jobs, including letting you navigate between pages efficiently, storing your preferences, and generally improving your experience of a website. Most websites you visit will use cookies to improve your user experience by enabling that website to "remember" you, either for the duration of your visit (using a "session cookie") or for repeat visits (using a "persistent cookie").  

  

If a website doesn't use cookies, it will think you are a visiting the website for the first time every time you move to a new page on the site - for example, when you enter your login details and move to another page the website won't recognise you and it won't be able to keep you logged in.  

 

What cookies do we use? 

We use essential and functional cookies on your Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) 

 

Server cookies 

We use AWS servers to host this site. These servers collect two cookies to identify which server currently has the best availability and sends the  information to that server. This makes the performance of the site and your experience  better. No personal data is collected by these essential cookies and they are deleted at the end of each session.  

 

Moodle cookies 

Moodle collects two cookies on this site: 

 

  1. The essential Moodle Session cookie must be allowed in your browser to make sure that you remain logged in while using the site. T his cookie does collect personal data (log in information). When you log out or close the browser, this data is deleted (in your browser and on the server). 
     

  1. The MoodleID cookie can be  activated to remember your username when you log in. You can choose to activate this cookie or not on the log-in screen by checking the box to ‘remember username’.  This cookie does collect personal data (log in information) and it is kept for 60 days.  

 

Turnitin cookies 

We use Turnitin with your Moodle account  to improve your learning experience. Turnitin uses  one cookie to show correct marks and  another to show feedback summaries in the VLE. No personal information is stored in these cookies and they are deleted after 30 days.  

 

How can you disable cookies? 

 

If you would like to prevent Kaplan International Pathways VLE from collecting cookies when you visit the application, please update the privacy setting in your chosen web browser.   

 

You can directly control cookie acceptance from there, however please note that doing so will affect the functionality of the VLE, for example you will be asked to log in again on each new page of the VLE because the session cookie will be unable to identify  you from your initial log in.
