Welcome to our Cookie Policy

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files stored by your browser as you browse the internet. They can be used to collect, store, and share data about your activities across websites, including on iopsatraining.co.za. Cookies also allow us to remember things about your visits to iopsatraining.co.za, like your preferred language, and to make the site easier to use. We use both session cookies, which expire after a short time or when you close your browser, and persistent cookies, which remain stored in your browser for a set period of time. We use session cookies to identify you during a single browsing session, like when you log into iopsatraining.co.za. We use persistent cookies where we need to identify you over a longer period, like when you request that we keep you signed in.

Why do we use cookies and similar technologies?

We use cookies and similar technologies like web beacons, pixel tags, or local shared objects (“flash cookies”), to deliver, measure, and improve our services in various ways. We use these cookies both when you visit our site and services through a browser and through our mobile app. As we adopt additional technologies, we may also gather additional data through other methods.

We use cookies for the following purposes: a)Authentication If you are signed into our site, cookies help us to show you the correct profile information and personalise your experience. b)Security We use cookies to enable and support our security features, and to help us detect malicious activity and violations of our User Agreement. c)Preferences, Features and Services Cookies can tell us what language you prefer and what your communications preferences are. They can help you fill out forms on our site more easily. They also provide you with features, insights, and customised content in conjunction with our plugins. d)Advertising We may use cookies to show you relevant advertising both on and off our site. We may also use a cookie to learn whether someone who saw an ad later visited and took action (e.g. downloaded a white paper or made a purchase) on our website. Similarly, our partners may use a cookie to determine whether we have shown a specific ad and how it has performed, or provide us with information on how you interact with ads. We may also work with a partner to show you an ad on or off our site, for example, after you have visited a partner’s site or application. This information may then be applied to improve our marketing and/or sales strategies.
