Linder Academy uses technologies on our websites and other services (the “Services”) to collect information that helps us improve your experience. In this Policy, we refer to these technologies, which include cookies, pixels, web beacons, gifs, and similar technologies as “cookies.” This Policy explains the different types of cookies on the Services and how you can control them. We may change this Policy at any time — please take a look at the “Last Revised” date at the top of this page to see when this Policy was last updated. Any changes will become effective when we make the revised Policy available on or through the Services.

If you don’t want to receive cookies, you can change your browser settings as described below. If you use the Services without changing your settings, we’ll assume that you consent to receive cookies. Please note that some features of the Services will not work properly without cookies.

What Are Cookies and What Types of Cookies Does Linder Academy Use?
Cookies are text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device. Linder Academy uses two types of cookies, persistent and session. A persistent cookie is set once you’ve logged into your account. The next time you visit the Services using the same device, the persistent cookie will enable us to recognize you as an existing user, so you may not need to log in again. A session cookie is used to identify a particular visit to the Services. Session cookies expire after a short time, or when you close your web browser.

Who Places Cookies on the Linder Academy Services?
Cookies may be set by Linder Academy when you use the Services, or they may be set by other sites or services that provide content and services on the pages you view (known as third-party cookies).

  • Targeting and Advertising. We and our service providers may use cookies to deliver ads that we believe are more relevant to you and your interests. For example, we may use cookies to limit the number of times you see the same ad and to measure the effectiveness of our ad campaigns.

In some circumstances, third-party advertisers may use their own cookies to collect information about your activities on the Services, other sites, and/or the ads you have clicked on. This information may be used by them to serve ads that they believe are most likely to be of interest to you. Third-party advertisers may also use this information to measure the effectiveness of their ads.
