Thank you for visiting www.evergreentraining.com (‘website’). The information below describes our GDPR position and the cookies we use on this site and what we use them for. This cookie notice applies to the website, any website or branded pages on third party platforms (e.g. YouTube) and applications accessed or used through such websites or platforms which are operated by or on behalf of Evergreen Training.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) sets out specific requirements for businesses who are established in Europe or who serve users in Europe and regulates how businesses can collect, use and store personal data.
We don’t take identifiable user-based data without consent on our website. The only data taken that will include user identifiable data is from submitted forms from the ‘Contact’ section of our website (to enquire about how we can help your business).
No identifiable data is taken via Google Analytics on our website. To find out more about Google’s position on privacy and data protection, please read Google’s privacy information.
We’ll never contact you unless you’ve given us express permission, for example in response to your completion of the email form on the ‘Contact’ section of the website.
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the site owners.
See below for details on what information is collected by cookies and how we use that information. For more information on cookies, you can also visit AboutCookies.org
First Party Cookies
These are cookies that are set by our website directly.
- Content Management System (CMS): Our website runs a CMS and cookies are used to store basic data on your interactions with the CMS. If cookies are disabled, then various functionality on the site may be affected.
- Session cookies: Webpages don’t have a memory, a user going from page to page will be treated by a website as a completely new visitor. Session cookies enable our website to keep track of your movement from page to page so that you are not asked for the same information you’ve already given to our site. Session cookies allow you to proceed through many pages of our website quickly and easily without having to authenticate or reprocess each new area you visit. An example of this functionality is the shopping basket feature of an e-commerce site such as ours. When you visit one page of a website and select an item, such as an online training course, the session cookie remembers your selection so that your shopping basket will have the item you selected when you are ready to proceed to check out. Without session cookies, if you click on ‘checkout’, the new page won’t recognise your past activities on the previous pages and your shopping basket will always be empty. For more information, click on the following link: understanding session cookies
- Functional/persistent cookies: These are cookies which are set up to improve the functionality of our website. For example, cookies that remember the content you previously viewed on this website or the email address and password you provided when registering during an earlier visit to this website. Functional cookies may also remember items you have previously placed in your basket while visiting the website. Using functional cookies saves you the time of entering information again when you re-visit the website or log into your account.
Third Party Cookies
These are cookies set on your mobile phone or computer by external websites whose services may be used on this site, such as social media sites LinkedIn and Instagram. They may use the data collected from these cookies based on your visit to this website, to send targeted advertising anonymously to you on other websites. You should check the respective policies of each of these sites to understand how they use your information and to find out how to opt out or delete this information.
