Online behavioural advertising (OBA) allows us to deliver customised advertising to visitors to our website. OBA allows us and our third party suppliers to deliver to you adverts that are based on your browsing patterns and other interaction with this website.
Some of the cookies we place on your computer or device may be advertising cookies so we can understand the types of pages and courses that you are interested in, and customise your experience based on that information. For example, if you search for courses about learning a language, we may show you advertisements relating to language courses that are available through our website.
Please note that the OBA techniques we may use do not require us, our business partners, or advertising networks to collect personal information such as your name, email address or telephone number.
We may also share the anonymised behavioural data with advertising partners. This may mean that when you are visiting other websites, you are served adverts based on your behaviour on our website.
If you wish to opt-out of receiving OBA, this does not mean that you will no longer receive advertising. It simply means that the advertising delivered to you will not be customised.
