TeachAids Cookies Policy
Cookies. Cookies are small text files that are placed in your computer’s browser to store your preferences. Cookies may be associated with a unique identification number tied to your computer or device so that you can be recognized as the same user across one or more browsing sessions, and across one or more websites.
Cookies serve many useful purposes. Analytics cookies store information about what pages people visit, how long they are on the site, how they got there, and what they click on. Information supplied by analytics cookies helps TeachAids analyze the profile of visitors and provide them with a better experience.
[Some areas of TeachAids’ website allow users to log in and retrieve personal data and account details. Some of these areas use a cookie in order to remember account information.] [Note to TeachAids: We didn’t see anywhere where visitors would log-in to your website. If that concept doesn’t apply, this paragraph can be deleted]
If you want to control which cookies you accept, you may be able to configure your browser to accept all cookies or to alert you every time a cookie is offered by a website’s server. Most browsers automatically accept cookies. Please consult your browser settings or options for information about the choices you have to not receive cookies and/or delete existing cookies from your browser. You may find that some parts of this website will not function properly if you have refused cookies.
Other Technologies. Other Internet technologies include web beacons, which are small bits of code that are embedded in web pages, ads, and e-mail and that communicate with third parties. For example, we may use web beacons to count the number of users who have visited a particular web page or opened a particular e-mail. As another example, we may use local shared objects or HTML 5 local storage to help the Services function.
Do Not Track. Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals to the websites and other online services with which the browser communicates. There is no standard that governs what, if anything, websites should do when they receive these signals. TeachAids currently does not take action in response to these signals. If and when a standard for responding is established, TeachAids may revisit its policy on responding to these signals.
