Our cookie policy

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

There are two kinds of cookies - session (set on a short-term basis and auto-deleting after a few minutes or when you close your browser), usually in order to register to a website that you are logged in to it, and persistent, set by the website and stored for a longer period of time, usually used to store commonly entered information on forms (such as your name, address, and telephone number), any preferences the website might allow you to store in terms of layout and functionality (such as widgets on an iGoogle home page), and information about your browsing habits across multiple sites, usually used to allow advertisers and social network site operators to target advertising at you.

B14KingsHeath, which is run on the Ning platform, does not use this type of cookie to target advertising or record your browsing habits beyond our site. All our cookies, which are listed below, are there simply to improve the functionality of our site.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and help us create a more useful and easy to use site. The data collected is completely anonymous and does not store any personal details. The information, collected by Google through the use of the cookie, is used to analyse how visitors make use of the website and allows us to gather statistical information such as website activity, visitor numbers, popular pages, customer journey through the website, etc.

If you would like to opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics you can use the opt-out tool at: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

In summary, we use cookies to ensure that we give you the best experience on our website. If you continue without changing your settings, we'll assume that you are happy to receive all cookies our websites set. However, if you would like to, you can change your cookie settings at any time.

Instructions for blocking cookies using browser settings:

For other browsers and operating systems, consult your relevant help file.

Not accepting cookies means some functions of this website will no longer work.

The use of persistent cookies in the European Union has been regulated by EU Directive 2002/58 on Privacy and Electronic Communications, and in the UK is enacted under the authority of the Information Commissioner's Office.

This list below is of all the cookies we use, not just the persistent ones. You will see that many of them are deleted as soon as you close your browser. Some apply to features, such as chat volume settings, that we do not currently use on B14KingsHeath - so they won't be set. Others only apply to people who have been given extra editing rights, to help them do their job - so they won't apply to the majority of ordinary site visitors.
