If you are a training participant, your employer (or other third party paying for training) supplies us with your business contact information: Name, email address, physical address and phone number. Some employers also provide additional identifying information such as an employee ID number. We do not ask for nor do we process sensitive personal information.
If you are purchasing training for yourself or interacting with our Services without being a training participant, we collect the contact information you provide.
In interacting with our Services, we collect IP address and data associated with cookies. We will also generate information about your use of the services, including creating a record of your training.
We do not consider personal information to include information that has been anonymized or aggregated so that it can no longer be used to identify a specific natural person, whether in combination with other information or otherwise.
We collect information when you use the Services. We also collect personal information from you and any devices (including mobile devices) you use when you: use our Services, register for an account with us, provide us information on a web form, update or add information to your account, provide us information at a tradeshow or other event, or when you otherwise correspond with us.
We also collect information when orders are placed from the party making the order. This information is typically provided by an employer but may be provided directly by you or another third-party purchasing services on your behalf.
We endeavor to provide you with choices about how we use your personal information to communicate with you, to send you marketing information, and how we provide you with individualized Services and relevant information.
There are some instances, however, where the processing of your information may be limited or determined by others. If your data was provided to us by your employer (or other party paying for your Services), we will process the data based on the legitimate interests of your employer in having us provide Services to you in the context of that relationship. We may also process your personal information with regard to our legitimate interest in compliance and maintaining business records. You have a right to object to the processing of your personal information in these circumstances by contacting us at [email protected]
We use your personal information to provide and improve our Services, provide you with a personalized experience in using our Services, contact you about your account and our Services, provide you customer service, provide you with personalized advertising and marketing, and to detect, prevent, mitigate and investigate fraudulent or illegal activities.
If we received your personal information from an employer in connection with the provision of Services, we will use that information to communicate with you and provide the Services. We may also provide information about your use of the Services to your employer.
Information about Services provided to a specified individual may appear in invoices and other financial records. We may also process and retain personal information for purposes of compliance with laws and regulations.
We respect your right to access, correct, request deletion or request restriction of our usage of your personal information as required by applicable law. We also take steps to ensure that the personal information we collect is accurate and up to date.
We may disclose your personal information to other members of the Octa Networks corporate family or to third parties. This disclosure may be required for us to provide you access to some of our Services, to comply with our legal obligations, to enforce our Terms & Conditions or other agreements, to facilitate our marketing and advertising activities, or to prevent, detect, mitigate, and investigate fraudulent or illegal activities related to our Services and otherwise comply with the law. We attempt to minimize the amount of personal information we disclose to what is directly relevant and necessary to accomplish the specified purpose.
We do not sell, rent, or otherwise disclose your personal information to third parties for their marketing and advertising purposes without your consent.
We retain your personal information for as long as necessary to provide the Services, or for other essential purposes such as maintaining financial and tax records, complying with our legal obligations, resolving disputes, and enforcing our policies.

Cookies are small text files containing a string of characters that can be placed on your computer or mobile device that uniquely identify your browser or device.
Cookies allow a site or services to know if your computer or device has visited that site or service before. Cookies can then be used to help understand how the site or service is being used, help you navigate between pages efficiently, help remember your preferences, and generally improve your browsing experience. Cookies can also help ensure marketing you see online is more relevant to you and your interests.
There are generally three categories of cookies: “Necessary”, “Performance”, and “Preference”. Octa Networks uses all three categories of cookies in connection with its web-based Services.
1. Necessary Cookies. These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around the Services and use important features, such as accessing your courses.
3. Preference Cookies. Octa Networks and our third-party partners may use these types of cookies to deliver content that is relevant to your interests. These cookies can remember that your device has visited a site or service, and may also be able to track your device’s browsing activity on other sites or services other than on the Octa Networks Services. This information may be shared for the purpose of providing aggregate usage statistics and testing of the Service.
The length of time a cookie will stay on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your computer or mobile device until they expire or are deleted.
First-party cookies are cookies that belong to Octa Networks, third-party cookies are cookies that another party places on your device through the Services. Third-party cookies may be placed on your device by someone providing a service for Octa Networks, such as remote labs or virtual classroom connectivity.

You can also adjust your settings so that your browser refuses most of our cookies or only certain cookies from third parties. You can also withdraw your consent to cookies by deleting the cookies that have already been stored.
If you disable the cookies that we use, this may impact your experience while using the Services, for example, you may not be able to access certain functionality of the Services or you may not receive personalized information.
If you use different devices to view and access the Services (e.g., your computer, smartphone, tablet) you will need to ensure that each browser on each device is adjusted to suit your cookie preferences
