Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to track the performance of our website and patterns in use. We do not link statistics collected by Google Analytics to personally identifiable information. Find out more on the Google Analytics privacy policy and how to opt out of tracking.

Third Party Social Media Sites

We may embed "widgets" from social media sites like Twitter, Facebook or Google+ into our sites. These sites use cookies to track who is logged in and will know details of which pages on our site use these "widgets".

Managing your privacy

You can block or remove cookies in the browser. Blocking cookies may prevent you from accessing online services from Swansea University. Removing cookies will log you out of an existing session. Find out how to block and manage cookies at All About Cookies.

You can use the "incognito" or "private browsing" mode in your web browser to restrict the type of cookies that are set and how they are used to track. This creates a fresh session and you will look like a new user unconnected to other sites, for example social media sites will see you as a signed out user (unless you explicitly login to them) and Google Analytics will see you as a new visitor.
