The Anti-Doping e-Learning platform (ADEL), created and managed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA), offers access to topics related to clean sport and anti-doping. It offers courses for athletes, coaches, doctors, administrators and anyone interested in learning more about anti-doping and protecting the values of clean sport.
What are cookies and SDKs?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on the website visitor’s computer or mobile device. To function, these cookies collect certain technical information about your device, such as the Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type and version, device type, time zone setting, browser plug-in types and versions, time spend, page speeds/resolution, pages viewed and requested, and operating system and platform (“Technical Data”).
Cookies can be “first party” or “third party”. First-party cookies are cookies set by the operator of a website (e.g., the cookies WADA sets on its own website). Third-party cookies are cookies set by a party other than the operator of website you are visiting.
Cookies can also be “session” or “persistent”. Session cookies are temporary and expire once you close your browser (or once your session ends). Persistent cookies encompass all cookies that remain on your hard drive until you erase them or your browser does, depending on the cookie’s expiration date.
SDK stands for “Software Development Kit”. These are collections of software development tools that we use to provide features in the ADEL mobile application. SDKs are required for App software development. For example, the iOS SDK is required for any iOS Application.
What types of cookies and SDKs does ADEL use?
We use the following types of cookies and SDKs on ADEL:
Functional SDKs: We use third-party SDKs in the ADEL mobile application for certain features to function. These are typically features you must enable when using the app, such as push notifications.
Please note that Google Analytics and Crashlytics are used by many organizations across the web and in mobile apps, and that Google uses the analytics data from these sources for its own purposes. Based on this cross-site information, Google also provides us with aggregate information about our ADEL users’ age, gender, and interests. On mobile, Google uses your device’s unique advertising ID to collect analytics data. For more information about Google’s use of analytics data, go to www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.
Targeting Cookies: Targeting cookies may be set by third-party providers whose services have been added to the ADEL platform, and who use targeting cookies for their own purposes to build a profile of your interests based on the browsing information they collect from you, which includes uniquely identifying your browser and terminal equipment. If you do not allow these cookies you will still see basic advertising on your browser or when you use these third-party services that is generic and not based on your interests.
Do I have to allow cookies?
Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features as you expect to, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Because of this, strictly necessary cookies do not require your consent and you cannot turn them off using this cookie preference center.
We have implemented a cookie management solution called OneTrust, which enables you to choose whether to allow non-essential cookies on the browser version of ADEL. You can review and adjust your settings at any time by clicking on the Cookie Settings button in the bottom left of the webpage. If you do not agree with the SDKs in use on the ADEL mobile application, please use the browser version of ADEL instead.
Many web browsers allow control over most cookies through the browser settings. If you want to set your cookie preferences through your browser, please visit your browser’s settings or review the online instructions provided by the following browsers: Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Safari Desktop, Safari Mobile; and Android Browser.
