This policy explains how the Seetec group of companies (“Seetec”, “we”, “our” or “us”) uses cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit any of our websites. It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control the use of them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files of data that can be placed on your device that allows us to recognise and remember you. The cookies are sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive, or your tablet/mobile device. When visiting our website we may collect information from you automatically using cookies or similar technology.

Cookies set by us are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than us are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through our websites (e.g. interactive content or analytics). Our trusted partners who set these third-party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits our website and other sites too.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to provide easier navigation around our sites and gather anonymous analytics information. In a few cases, cookies are used to provide functionality within sessions, such as within our portals or learning environments. Some cookies are also required for technical reasons in order for our websites to operate properly. We refer to these cookies as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our websites. For example, we may use Google Analytics (a third-party cookie) within our websites to monitor how visitors have landed on our site, and how they navigate it. This is done so we can see aggregated (not individual) statistics about which content our users access most frequently.

We may also use links to other services such as social media or video services on our website. These third-party services may drop cookies on your computer when you use them. Due to the nature of how cookies work, we cannot access these cookies nor control their use. Likewise, these third-party services cannot access our session or analytics cookies.

As part of respecting the privacy of our website visitors, we do not use any cookies that collect personal information about you. By using and browsing the KSS CRC website you are giving consent for cookies to be used according to our policy. If you do not consent to cookies being used, you can block or restrict any of the cookies through your browser settings or refrain from using the website.
