Types of Cookies

Cookies can be divided into four categories:

1. Indispensable cookies   Indispensable cookies are needed to move around the website and to use its features. Without these cookies requested services may not be provided such as on-line payments.

2. Performance cookies   Performance cookies gather information on the way visitors use a website, for instance which pages do visitors view most often, and if they receive messages about errors. These cookies do not gather information which identifies a visitor. All information kept by these cookies is stored and kept anonymously. It is used only to improve the way a website works.

3. Feasibility cookies   Feasibility cookies support the use of the website and enable advanced and personalised features. Some of these cookies are essential to enable the user to move about the website without coming across any problems while using specific features.

These cookies are used to enable the website to remember user choices (such as the user names, language or area) and to provide better more personalised features. For example, it may be possible for a website to provide reports on local weather or traffic news by placing a cookie which notes the current area of the user. These cookies can also be used to remember the changes made to text size, fonts and other web page elements which may be modified. The information these cookies gather can be anonymised; they cannot trace your steps as you browse on other websites.

4. Targeting cookies  Targeting cookies are used to introduce advertisements which are relevant to the user and his/her interests. Usually these are set by advertising networks with the permission of the website operator. They remember you have visited a website and this information is shared with other institutions such as advertisers. Very often, targeting cookies are connected to the feasibility of the website provided by the other institution. (The University of Wales Trinity Saint David does NOT use targeting cookies at the date of issuing this information)

Do I need cookies?

Yes and No – depending on which websites you use

If the user wishes to restrict the cookies set by the University, or by any other website, or restrict them, this can be done by changing the browser settings. Most browsers can be configured to reject cookies, or to issue a warning before a computer accepts them. The Help button within the browser should show to configure it to reject cookies or warn the user when they are being used.

However, having said that, cookies may have benefits: often they improve the experience of the online user. The University of Wales Trinity Saint Davies uses cookies to improve the online experience. If the user disables cookies while using the website he/she will not be able to obtain the maximum benefit from or fully access hands-on features or services on the University website.

It is important to note that some cookies are essential for some services provided by the University. If settings are configured to prevent cookies the user will probably not be able to login to services such as Moodle, MyTSD and others which use cookies as part of the identification process. Moodle and MyTSD use a cookies session which is ‘live’ only during that browser session and once the browser is closed they are discarded.

More information on managing cookies is available at All About Cookies.
