GradsKent and Kent County Council (KCC) want to make our websites and the online services we provide useful and reliable.
This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information called cookies on your computer, mobile phone or other device used to access the internet. Cookies do lots of different jobs, like letting you navigate between pages efficiently, enabling you to use services you have specifically asked for and remembering your preferences. They also give website operators useful, non-personal information about how people use their website. You can find more information about cookies at:
- Enable services you have specifically asked for, such as your online GradsKent account
- Collect anonymous information on the pages visited using Google Analytics. This helps us understand how our website is used and improve our service; the information we collect using Google Analytics is not linked to you as an individual.
- Improve your experience of the website (such as watching videos from YouTube or viewing news feeds from Facebook and Twitter, which we will be incorporating in the near future)
By using our website, you agree that we can place these types of cookies on your device.

Kent County Council website cookie audit
The cookies used across KCC websites fall into 3 categories:
1. Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies enable services you have specifically asked for. In particular, if you do not allow cookies you will not be able to register or log into your account.
2. Performance cookies
These cookies collect anonymous information on the pages visited.
This includes information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies don’t collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
3. Functional cookies
These cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience. These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing in a cookie the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of web pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymised and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
