Information about our use of cookies

This Cookie Policy is intended to inform you/the user about how ITTC-Canada/ International Tactical Training Centre Ltd. (a division of ITPS (Canada) Ltd.)

What are cookies and what do they do?

A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.

The term “cookie” also includes other similar technologies that store or access information on the user’s device. Information gathered through cookies may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, the browser software and operating system used to access the page, and the time spent on our website.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize ITTC pages, or register with ITTC website or services, a cookie helps ITTC to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same website page, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the ITTC features that you customized.
