When users enter Young Enterprise Scotland’s website their computers will automatically be issued with "cookies". Cookies are text files which identify users’ computers to Young Enterprise Scotland’s server. The website then creates "session" cookies to store some of the preferences of users moving around the website, eg retaining a low graphics text-only preference.
Cookies in themselves do not identify individual users but identify only the computer used and they are deleted on departure from the website. Many websites do this to track traffic flows, whenever users visit those websites.
Young Enterprise Scotland’s website uses third-party cookies to measure use of the website including number of visitors, how frequently pages are viewed, and the city and country of origin of users. This helps to determine what is popular and can influence future content and development. For this purpose, Young Enterprise Scotland uses statistical analysis tools to measure and analyse usage of the website. The information collected by Young Enterprise Scotland will include IP Address, pages visited, browser type and operating system. The data will not be used to identify any user personally.
Users have the opportunity to set their computers 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 eg retaining saved log-in details to allow you quick access on your next visit.
Our Vision is for Scotland to be a place where all young people are given the opportunity to have a rewarding future in work and life - no matter where they start their journey.
Our Mission is to inspire and equip young people, irrespective of their background, to learn, develop and reach their full potential through enterprise education.
In everything that we do, we will work with the following values: Integrity, Enthusiasm, Creativity & Collaboration.
