Digital advertising service cookies

Bradford College does not serve digital advertising content for third-parties who do not have any association or formal partnership with us.

Google Advertising Services uses a DoubleClick cookie to serve more relevant ads across the web and limit the number of times you see a given ad.

Bradford College uses Google Advertising Services to promote our products and services to people we think would benefit from them.

The behavioural advertising cookies used by this site are designed to make sure that our advertising service provider (Google) provides you with the most relevant adverts where possible by anonymously tracking your interests and showing other things that may be of interest.

This may include information or content you access elsewhere on the web.

For more information on how Google uses cookies for advertising, please see the official Google Advertising Privacy and Terms page.

As well as Google Advertising services, Bradford College may also sometimes use advertising on social media platforms.

Cookies and online payments

Some parts of our website allow you to pay us online. To make this possible, we use a service called ‘Checkout‘ provided by Stripe. Stripe is an online payment processor which the college uses so we can accept online payments.

Stripe Checkout may need the use of cookies so it can process a transaction. You can find out more about the cookies set by Stripe by visiting Stripe’s Cookies Policy.

Social media platform cookies

We also use social media buttons and plugins on this site that allow you to connect with your social network.

For these to work, the social media sites listed may set cookies through our site. They may use these to enhance your profile on their site, or add to the data they hold for reasons outlined in their own privacy policies.

Opt-out of advertising services

If you would like to opt-out of advertising services, there are some options.
You can tell online platforms and services not to track you using the links below. Please note these sites may ask you to sign in:

Opt-out of Analytics

Google has an add-on (also known as an extension) for the most common web browsers. It tells your browser to opt out of Google Analytics.

If you do not wish to install this add-on but want to opt out, you could disable JavaScript. But this is not recommended as many websites need it to work.

Opt-out of using cookies

If you would like to opt-out of third-party cookies completely, you’ll need to look at your web browser settings.

Disabling cookies will affect the way this and many other websites that you visit work. Some parts of this site might stop working if you disable cookies.

It is recommended that you leave your default cookie settings in your web browser if you are not sure whether you need them, in case they are used to provide a service that you use.

Instructions on how to disable cookies vary by your web browser software. Please look at your web browser’s support documentation for specific instructions.
