Why do we use cookies on the Parent Club website?

Some cookies are used to make sure the website runs properly and keep it secure. These need to be on, so you can’t opt out of these.

We also use Google Analytics, which sets cookies to collect information about how you use

We store information about:

  • the pages you visit and how long you spend on each page
  • how you got to
  • what you click on while you're visiting
  • whether you’re using a computer or mobile and which browser you use
  • which country and city you live in.

We don't make any attempt to find out the identities of people visiting, and we don't allow Google to do this either.
