Cookie Policy - What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to "remember" your actions or preferences over time.

Most Internet browsers support cookies; however, users can set their browsers to decline certain types of cookies or specific cookies. Further, users can delete cookies at any time.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to learn how you interact with our content and to improve your experience when visiting our website.

For example, some cookies remember your language or preferences so that you do not have to repeatedly make these choices when you visit our website. We also use cookies to help us with geolocation tracking in order to present you with the closest SATU regional office location.

 

Additionally, cookies may allow us to serve you specific content, such as videos on our website. We may employ the learnings of your behaviour on our website to serve you with targeted advertisements on third-party website(s) in an effort to “re-market” our products and services to you – provided that you have given your consent and subscribed to direct marketing.

Types of cookies.

First-Party and Third-Party Cookies

We use both first-party and third-party cookies on our website.

First-party cookies are cookies issued from the uasa.co.za domain that are generally used to identify language and location preferences or render basic site functionality.

Third-party cookies belong to and are managed by other parties, such as SATU accredited service providers.

Session Cookies

Session cookies are temporary cookies that are used to remember you during your visit to the website, and they expire when you close the web browser.

Persistent Cookies

Persistent cookies are used to remember your preferences within the website and remain on your desktop or mobile device even after you close your browser or restart your computer.

 

We use these cookies to analyse user behaviour to establish visit patterns so that we can improve our website functionality for you and others who visit our website. These cookies also allow us to measure the effectiveness of our site functionality and advertising.

How does SATU use cookies and other tracking tools

Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us collect aggregated audit data, research, and performance reporting for advertisers.

 

Pixels enable us to understand and improve the delivery of ads to you and know when certain ads have been shown to you. Since your web browser may request advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.

Although we do not use cookies to create a profile of your browsing behaviour on third-party sites, we do use aggregate data from third parties to show you relevant, interest-based advertising. We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers.

 

You can opt out of off-site and third party-informed advertising by adjusting your cookie settings. Opting out will not remove advertising from the pages you visit, but, instead, opting out will result in the ads you see not being matched to your interests. This implies that the ad(s) you see will not be matched to your interests by those specific cookies.

SATU | The South African Typographical Union Website uses "cookies" to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you.
 

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 SATU | South African Typographical Union pages or register with SATU| South African Typographical Union site or services, a cookie helps SATU | South African Typographical Union 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 SATU | South African Typographical Union site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the SATU | South African Typographical Union features that you customized.

You can accept or decline cookies.

Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the SATU| South African Typographical Union or Web sites you visit.

How are third party cookies used?

For some of the functions within our websites we use third party suppliers, for example, when you visit a page with videos embedded from or links to YouTube.

 

These videos or links (and any other content from third party suppliers) may contain third party cookies, and we encourage you to consult the privacy policies of these third-party vendors on their websites for information regarding their use of cookies.

How do I reject and delete cookies?

You can choose to reject or block all or specific types of cookies set by virtue of your visit to the SATU website by clicking on the cookie preference banner pop-up on our website. You can change your preferences for the SATU website and/or the websites of any third-party suppliers by changing your browser settings.

Please note that most browsers automatically accept cookies. Therefore, if you do not wish cookies to be used, you may need to actively delete or block the cookies. If you reject the use of cookies, you will still be able to visit our website but some of the functions may not work correctly.

You may also visit www.allaboutcookies.org for details on how to delete or reject cookies and for further information on cookies generally.

A Cookie Preference Banner on the site for the specified purposes would need to be looked into.
