Cookie Statement

Cookies are text files stored by your web browser onto your device. Cookies can be used as a way to collect usage statistics, remember login information, or remember when certain events occurred (e.g. not showing the cookie notification bar after cookies have been accepted by the viewer).

We use cookies on our web site solely for creating a more convenient user experience. We do not use cookies to collect any personal information or identify you personally.

You can accept cookies by clicking Yes on the green cookie bar located at the bottom of the page (if it is displaying) or by going to the Site Settings page and turning on the Cookies enabled switch.

You can refuse/rescind acceptance of cookies at any time as well. If you have not accepted cookies and do not wish to save cookies from us, you can click No on the cookie bar or simply ignore it (keep in mind that refusing cookies will result in the site displaying the cookie bar every time you visit one of its pages). You can also rescind your acceptance of cookies by visiting the Site Settings page and turning off the Cookies enabled switch. Doing so will delete all existing cookies created by CompCADEMY and reset all site settings you have modified.

How do we use cookies? We use cookies in order to remember whether you have already seen notifications and have been made aware of our use of cookies, as well as to allow you to customize certain UI elements of our site to your liking.

Depending on when the cookies expire, you may see notifications every once in a while, however.
