Cookies Used on the SWAT UK Website

A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. The SWAT UK website uses harmless "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. 

The cookies we use help parts of the site to function correctly and they have already been set. The cookies we use cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They are completely non-invasive and will NOT harm your computer. In fact, they have a really useful job to do, in making sure the SWAT UK website operates as you want, by doing helpful jobs such as:

  • Remembering what items you have added to your online "basket"
  • Navigating back to your search results
  • Submitting enquiries through the SWAT UK website
  • Telling the web server that you have returned to a specific page
  • If you have an online account with us, a cookie helps the website to recall your specific information on subsequent visits

We also use cookies to track visitor numbers to our site. The cookies we use do not collect personal information about you, and this information is completely anonymous. We use them to help us improve our website by developing content that is relevant and of use to you. Again, these cookies are completely non-invasive and will NOT harm your computer.

Many of the cookies we use are referred to as "session" cookies, which means they are not stored on your computer long-term.

We do NOT use cookies to collect personal information about you or provide information to third-parties.

See the section below titled "Types of cookies used on the SWAT UK website" for a thorough overview of the cookies used on our website.


Types of cookies used on the SWAT UK Website

The International Chamber of Commerce (UK) categorises cookies into a number of different types. We've outlined below those which apply to the SWAT UK website, with some commentary about each type and how these cookies are used on the SWAT UK website.

1. Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for (such as our online "basket") cannot be provided.


2. Performance cookies

These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, or if they get error messages from web pages.

These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore completely anonymous. They are only used to improve how our website works.


3. Functionality cookies

These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name) and provide enhanced, more personal features. They cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.


What happens if I block cookies?

If you block cookies from the SWAT UK website, you will effectively "switch off" much of the functionality that makes this website (and many other sites) work.

If you choose to decline cookies, you will not be able to experience fully the interactive features of the SWAT UK website services or other websites you visit. However, if you wish to do this, you can block cookies by modifying your browser settings to decline cookies.


Cookie Use in Marketing Emails

All SWAT UK marketing emails (such as the monthly Newswire and our Courses Update emails) use harmless cookies to help improve our service to you.

The purpose of these cookies is simply to identify the number of people who open an email and click-through to certain links. Monitoring this help us to ensure the emails we send you are relevant and of interest to you.

We encourage anyone who no longer wishes to receive our marketing emails to unsubscribe, by clicking the "unsubscribe" link in every marketing email we issue.

The cookies we use in our marketing emails cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They are completely non-invasive and will NOT harm your computer.

However, should you wish to disable cookies, please refer to our section above titled "What happens if I block cookies?"
