1. What are Cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data (text files) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your login information. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
There are two types of cookies – those which are essential to provide you with the services you have requested and others which enable us to improve the quality of those services and/or track website usage. They are set by us, and described in more detail below. In brief terms, however, our website only uses non-essential cookies, with your agreement, to aggregate data on an anonymous basis by measuring how many users undertake particular actions on our website, so that we can monitor and improve our services. Our cookies do not process personal data, meaning that they do not use any information from which you can be identified as an individual.
The particular cookies we use are set out below.
2. Which cookies do we use?
As described above, a ‘non-essential cookie’ is a term we use to describe those cookies which are not strictly necessary in order to provide the Trinity Challenge website service, but nonetheless improve the quality of the services we provide by generating relevant analytical data about use of the website. We will only use them where you have provided your specific, positive consent to us doing so.
A brief summary of the non-essential cookies we use is as follows:

The cookies we use enable us to monitor how you use our website, and are created by Google Analytics. The data collected is anonymised and is not used in relation to you individually but provides a measure of how many users undertake certain actions on the website so that we can monitor certain metrics of success. No individual behaviour data will be used for advertising nor passed on to third parties with the exception of Google Analytics. As the information is anonymised, you are not identifiable and so it is not your personal data.
