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. In order to function, these cookies collect certain technical data 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, operating system and platform. In the ADEL mobile app, we use Software Development Kits (SDKs) for the same functions as cookies.
Cookies can be “first party” or “third party”. First-party cookies are cookies set by the operator of a website (e.g., the cookies ADEL 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. All persistent cookies have an expiration date written into their code, but their duration can vary.
What types of cookies does ADEL use?
ADEL uses only strictly necessary cookies. These cookies are necessary for the ADEL platform to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. These cookies allow us to operate and manage the ADEL platform, such as identify your session and ensure the security of the connection. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the ADEL platform will not work as a result.
Do I have to allow cookies?
Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the platform and use its features as you expect to, such as securely accessing your ADEL account. Because of this, strictly necessary cookies do not require your consent and you cannot turn them off using this cookie preference center.
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.
