What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files sent by us to your computer or mobile device which enable Adaface features and functionality. They are unique to your account or your browser. Session-based cookies last only while your browser is open and are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Persistent cookies last until you or your browser delete them or until they expire.
Some cookies are associated with your account and personal information in order to remember that you are logged in and which dashboards you are logged in to. Other cookies are not linked to your account; these cookies are unique and allow us to perform analytics and customisation, among other actions.
Cookies can be used to recognise you when you visit our sites/ services, remember your preferences and give you a personalised experience that is consistent with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions faster and more secure. Here's the categorization of our usage of cookies:
Authentication: If you’ve signed in to Adaface, cookies help us show you the right information and personalise your experience.
Preferences, features and services: Cookies can tell us which language you prefer and your communication preferences. They can help you complete forms on our sites more easily. They also provide you with features, insights and customised content.
Are cookies used for advertising purposes?
No. Adaface does not serve any advertisements.
What can you do if you don’t want cookies to be set or want them removed?
Some people prefer not to allow cookies, which is why most browsers give you the ability to manage cookies to suit you. In some browsers, you can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, giving you more nuanced control over your privacy. What this means is that you can disallow cookies from all sites except those that you trust. Browser manufacturers provide help pages relating to cookie management in their products. Please see below for more information.
- Google Chrome
- Internet Explorer
- Mozilla Firefox
- Safari (desktop)
- Safari (mobile)
- Android Browser
- Opera Mobile
For other browsers, please consult the documentation provided by your browser manufacturer.
Note that if you limit the ability of websites and applications to set cookies, you may worsen your overall user experience and/or lose the ability to access the services because they will no longer be personalised to you. Doing this may also stop you from saving custom settings, such as login information.
Does Adaface respond to “do not track” signals?
Adaface does not collect personal information about your online activities over time and across third-party websites or online services. As a consequence, “do not track” signals transmitted from web browsers do not apply to Adaface and we do not alter any of our data collection and use practices if we receive such a signal.
Industry-accepted best practices and frameworks
Our security approach focuses on security governance, risk management and compliance. This includes encryption at rest and in transit, network security and server hardening, administrative access control, system monitoring, logging and alerting, and more.
We evaluated several of their competitors and found Adaface to be the most compelling. Great default library of questions that are designed to test for fit rather than memorization of algorithms.
