General

At PeopleCert, we use this technology, in order to offer an improved user experience and better services.

What options do I have?

You have three options. You may either proceed with the acceptance of all cookies and other mechanisms (“Accept all”), which will enable you to access all our website functions, you may refuse any non-necessary cookies (“Accept only necessary”) or you may proceed with the customization of your cookie settings (“Confirm my choices”). The latter two choices may impair your website experience.

Necessary cookies are installed upon your website visit. As they are strictly necessary either from a technical perspective, or to offer you the website services or functionalities of your choice, applicable law allows us to install them without requiring any action or consent from you. By selecting the button “Accept only necessary”, which you will find next to the initial basic information that we provide, you continue your browsing only with the Necessary cookies. We will remember your choice for a year. When this period is over, or if you visit us from another device or a different browser, we will ask you again. Unfortunately, if you do not wish for Necessary cookies to be installed at all, you should not use our services and manually delete the cookies that have already been installed on your browser.

Preference, Performance and Targeting cookies are installed if you select the “Accept all” button, which you will find next to the initial basic information that we provide, as well as underneath the expanding full notification (banner). We will remember your choice for a year. When this period is over, or if you visit us from another device or a different browser, we will ask you again. 

By selecting the button “Confirm my choices”, which you will find underneath the expanding full notification (banner), any of the Preference, Performance or Targeting cookies will be installed, if you have ticked the relevant box. If you have not ticked any of the boxes and select “Save settings”, then only Necessary cookies will be installed. We will remember your choices for a year. When this period is over, or if you visit us from another device or a different browser, we will ask you again. 

Change of settings – Withdrawal of consent

At any time, you may change for future use, the choice you have made with respect to cookies and similar technologies on our website. At the bottom of this Policy, you will find the button: “Cookies settings”. Regardless of what was your selection the last time we asked you through a pop-up banner if you accept the installation of cookies and similar technologies, you can decide again easily, directly and free of charge, through the pop-up banner, which will emerge again after selecting the “Cookies settings” button.

For example, if you had selected “Accept” and you changed your mind, you may select at the new pop-up banner any (or none) of the cookie categories you want to and then select “Save settings”. This action would act as a withdrawal of the consent you had already given to us and it would apply for future use, namely from this change onwards, our website will not use (these particular) cookies and similar technologies on your device. In case you also wish to remove the cookies that had already been installed on your device before the withdrawal of your consent, then you may do so manually by following the instructions that you will find in the “Control via browser settings – Removal of cookies” section below.

Control via browser settings – Removal of cookies

You may also control and manage the cookies via the settings of the browser you use. Some of your options (depending on the browser) are, for example, acceptance of all cookies, notification before installation of cookies or the ban of their installation.

Through the settings of your browser, you may reverse any installation of cookies and similar mechanisms by our website, by deleting the files already stored.

In order to manage and deactivate cookies, you may follow the relevant instructions per browser:
