Cookies Policy



Please read this Cookies Policy in conjunction with our 
Privacy Policy, which sets out additional details on how we use personally identifiable information and your various rights.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of text that are transferred to your device when you visit a website or app. There are different types of cookies as explained below. However, they essentially are a user’s identification card for the Moodle servers. Web beacons (another tracking technology) are small graphic files linked to our servers that allow to track your use of a website and its related functionalities. Cookies and web beacons allow us to serve you better and more efficiently, and to personalize your experience on our Site.

·       First party cookies are cookies set by the website you’re visiting. Only that website can read them. In addition, a website might potentially use external services, which also set their own cookies, known as third-party cookies.

·       Persistent cookies are cookies saved on your computer and that are not deleted automatically when you quit your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you quit your browser.

Every time you visit the Werfen Academy site, you will be prompted to accept or refuse cookies. The purpose is to enable the Site to remember your preferences (such as user name, language, etc.) for a certain period of time. That way, you don’t have to re-enter them when browsing around the Site during the same visit. Cookies can also be used to establish anonymized statistics about the browsing experience on our Site.

How Werfen Academy uses cookies

Werfen Academy mostly uses “first party cookies” and/or web beacons to help us determine and identify visitors, the type of content to which a user of our Site visits, the length of time each user spends on any particular area of our Site, and the specific functionalities that users choose to use. These are cookies set and controlled by Werfen, not by any external organization.

·       The 3 types of first-party cookies we use are to:

1.     Store visitor preferences

2.     Make our Site operational

3.     Gather analytics data (about user behavior)

3.     Gather analytics data (about user behavior)

We use these cookies purely for internal research on how we can improve the way the Site works and make it more relevant to your interests. The cookies simply assess how you interact with our Site as an anonymous user (the data gathered does not identify you personally). Also, this data is not shared with any third parties or used for any other purpose.
