Types of cookies used
Most cookies encountered when browsing Wrexham Glyndwr University websites are considered ‘third party’ cookies. This simply means the web site has used a feature supplied by an external provider, such as Facebook or Google Maps which sets the cookie. Third party cookies are not inherently more or less risky than first party cookies. The only thing to bear in mind is that the external provider, not the university, determines what type of information is stored and how it is used.
The most common type of cookie used on our website is set by Google Analytics, which provides anonymous statistical data to us to show usage trends and to aid in making decisions about what types of content are most popular.
