Moodle

Moodle uses cookies for authentication/login purposes, and to tie the user’s requests together into a session as necessary for the web application’s functionality. They are purely functional cookies, no user identifying information is kept in those cookies at all. Thus none of that is stored on the user’s computer either.

 

It is inherent to the application that it tracks certain user activity for grading/auditing purposes. This is not done via cookies but is tied to the authenticated user record.

User data submitted within courses is generally identifiable by user – as that is necessary for grading purposes. For some activities anonymous interaction may be possible at the discretion of the instructor.

 

Retention of such user-submitted data is governed by institutional policies for retention of academic records and is not controlled by Moodle.

 

No user data from Moodle instances is ever centrally collected by Moodle, with the exception of centrally hosted services that need to store user information including contact information or a document submission history. This information is however not accessible to anyone else, and

 

Moodle does not share this data with third parties.

Third-party building blocks installed on the system may however link your Moodle user account to third party servers that also hold user-identifying information. Moodle does not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the relevant third-party website for more information about these.
