What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files stored by your browser as you browse the internet. Cookies help us recognize your device, collect, store, and share data about how you are using our service, and make the site work better. Pixel tags, web beacons, or local storage are small blocks of code that measure your engagement with your content and help us improve and personalize our services to you. We use the term “cookies” in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.
We use both “session cookies” and “persistent cookies.” Session cookies expire after a short time or when you close your browser. Persistent cookies remain in your browser for a set period of time. You can check the duration of each cookie we use at our Cookie Preferences Page.
What sort of cookies does The eLearning Guild use?
Generally, our cookies are:
- Necessary Cookies
These cookies enable you to move around the website and use certain features like accessing members-only content. Without these cookies, some website features will not function and thus are “strictly necessary.”
- Preference Cookies
Preference cookies allow a website to remember your settings and preferences, like your user name, your preferred language and other website customizations. The information these cookies record may be anonymized and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
- Statistic Cookies
Statistic cookies collect information about how visitors use a website and to improve how that website works. For example, they tell us which pages visitors visit most often or if a page causes an error. Statistic cookies aggregate user information and do not record information that personally identifies a visitor.
- Marketing Cookies
Advertising networks use marketing cookies to deliver advertisements more relevant to you and your interests. They remember which websites you have visited and share this information with the advertisers and other third parties to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. Marketing cookies also improve the user experience because they can limit the number of times you see a particular advertisement.
If you click on a link to a third party website, that site may also send you cookies. Those third party websites have their own privacy and cookie policies that we cannot control. Please check the third-party websites for more information about their cookies and how to manage them.

- Visit our Cookie Preferences Page to see which cookies we use and to opt-in or -out of various cookies. If you want to disable our cookies, you can follow the instructions at www.aboutcookies.org. Please remember that if you choose to disable cookies, certain sections of our website may not work properly.
