Introduction

We may use personal data collected by cookies to perform analytics, such as trends, sales intelligence, marketing effectiveness (such as click and open rates), uptake and progress, to provide functionality in your use of our websites and to provide relevant content to you. You can Manage your Cookie Preferences.

What cookies are

“Cookies” are pieces of information in the form of small text files stored by a user's web browser on your hard drive, when you visit websites. Cookies help to identify the user when they visit a particular web page; this enables the website to work more efficiently and your visit to be personalised, for example, to simplify the login process for registered users. They also provide information to the owner of the site. Cookies collect information about internet users such as their names, addresses, email details, passwords and user preferences.

Whilst cookies and the information they transmit may not identify a living individual when taken on their own, it may be possible to do so in combination with other information held by the owner of the site or a third party. OPP’s websites, along with most other major websites, use cookies, but it is possible to restrict cookies or block the cookies which are set by us by turning off the cookie function via our Manage your Cookie Preferences page. However, if you do this, it will restrict the services you can use and/or our websites may not work for you as well as we intend or at all. You can view more information about cookies at www.aboutcookies.org where you will also find information on how to delete cookies from your computer.

How we use cookies

We use cookies in order to:

  • enhance your visit to opp.com and oppassessment.com, facilitate user administration including detection of mobile devices and to provide you with content tailored to your interests based on your usage of the respective site
  • give us information about the number of visitors to different parts of opp.com and how visitors use the site

The cookies we use may be session cookies or persistent cookies:

  • Session cookies are temporary cookies which exist only in the period you access the site and expire once you close the browser. They allow website operators to link the actions of users during a single browser session and therefore avoid you having to re-enter information
  • Persistent cookies are cookies which remain on the hard drive of your computer after you have visited the website. These help us to identify you as a unique visitor and enable us to recognise you on future visits. We may share information with third parties but only in relation to providing web or other services to you connected to the service we provide, including GoogleAnalytics, WhosOn (our live chat provider), BrightTALK (our webcast provider), AddThis (enabling sharing for social media purposes), Twitter and YouTube.
