11. Cookies Policy -Information PharmaSchool collects from you
a. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") browser from a website's computer and is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the websites to your interests. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of the bbc.co.uk features. Each browser is different, so check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
12. Open Courses
Booking on Open Courses is made subject to full payment being received. PharmaSchool may request a Purchase Order or full payment before confirming a place on a Course. All Cancellations will incur an administration fee. Cancellations more than 28 days prior to the course will result in a total refund minus an administration fee. Cancellations between 28 and 7 days will result in a refund of 50% minus an administration fee. Cancellations less than 7 days prior to the course will result in no refund.
