Cookie Policy

Wentworth’s website uses cookies to enhance your browsing experience.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file of data which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a website or page. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive. The cookie will help the website to remember your device the next time you visit that website.  In this policy we use the term “cookies” to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

What do Cookies do?

There are many actions cookies perform. For example, they can help us to remember your username, your membership preferences and analyse how well our website is performing.

Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username and member details. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.

Why does Wentworth use Cookies on its website?
