What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file stored on your computer or mobile device that contains data related to a website you visit. Cookies have a number of uses. They are used to ensure that a website functions properly as you might expect it to. Cookies also allow websites to ‘remember’ your browsing habits or preferences over a period of time. Cookies may be set by Climate Ready Academy as the website operator directly (“first-party cookies”) or in some cases, by another third-party service provider (“third-party cookies”). In the latter scenario, cookies are deployed for social media, advertising or analytics purposes. Climate Ready Academy will only be able to directly recognise and read the information contained on first-party cookies.

Other Tracking Technologies

There are other technologies which we deploy which track behaviour on our website. ‘Tracker Pixels’ are a means of allowing us to check whether you have viewed our content. These “pixels” are essentially tiny, invisible images on our web pages that, once loaded, will communicate your interaction with our content. This allows Climate Ready Academy and our partners to gauge the validity of material being presented to you.

Third Parties

We avail of third-party technologies across our site. These technologies help us to understand how you use the site and the ways in which we can improve your user experience. These technologies may track certain information such as the pages you visit across our site as well as how long your visit lasts. This allows us to continue providing engaging content. We also use social media plugins on this site that allow you to view videos and otherwise interact with certain content. In order for these technologies to work, trusted third parties will set cookies and tracker pixels throughout our site. Once enabled, these technologies may be used to enhance your profile or to contribute to the data they hold for various purposes outlined in their respective privacy policies. For any third-party technology used on our site, we will provide a link to that third-party’s respective cookie/privacy policy for your information. We encourage our visitors to review these policies in advance of granting consent to deployment.
