Introduction

To facilitate this website’s functionality, and to deliver pertinent services to cloud users and website visitors, this site installs tiny data files called cookies onto your device when you provide us with consent to do so. Accordingly, this message relays information about these cookies, detailing their functionality, your ability to permit or deny their installation, and how to control them.

What Is A Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that a cloud service or website saves on your computer, phone, tablet or other mobile device when you visit the website. Once these files are installed on your system, the cookies are transmitted back to the originating cloud service or website on each subsequent visit, enabling the service to recognize returning users with their saved preferences and user selections. In some cases, other affiliated websites may recognize the same cookie, enabling cookies to be shared across related services.

Cookies on this site may be delivered in a first-party representation (set by University of the Nations Battambang) or third-party representation (set by another website), and may also be set in association with communication you receive from us or we receive from you like emails and forms. Please be aware that third-party cookies are cookies that are set by an entity other than the website owner for purposes such as collecting information on user behavior, demographics, personalized settings or personalized marketing. An example of a third-party cookie could be youtube.com or doubleclick.net and others, where these third-party tools could be used within the University of the Nations Battambang website; in those cases, the cookie is controlled by the third-party. These cookies enable embedded content to function properly, such as YouTube/Vimeo videos, Facebook advertising, Instagram feeds, PayPal payment processing forms, application forms or other tools. Again, if used, these associated services use their own cookies. We do not have control over the placement of cookies by other websites or the lifespan of these cookies, even if you are directed to them from our website.

Cookies help us enhance your experience when using the website. They also help us understand how people use our site, such as which pages are most popular, so that we can better serve our site users.
