Cookie Policy

Our policy on cookies:

This page gives you details about how we use cookies on the Potensis website www.potensis.com

By visiting, logging into, registering on the Potensis website, you agree that it’s okay for us to collect, use and transfer your personal data under the terms of this policy. If you’re not cool with this or don’t want to be bound by this policy, you can disable the cookies – see the “managing cookies” section below for details.

About cookies
If you’re like us, you’ve probably not given too much thought to any cookie that doesn’t contain calories, so here are the essential facts: digital cookies are small files made up of bits of data, stored in your phone or computer’s temporary memory when you navigate around the web. Unless you have indicated your objection, our system will issue cookies to your computer when you access, register on and log on to the Potensis website. Cookies make it easier for you to log on to and use these sites during visits.

Mainly, we use cookies to tell our website, “Hey, you remember that computer who visited last week? Well, it’s back!” That cookie information helps us understand traffic patterns on our website, helps us store any preferences or passwords that you’ve asked us to store, and helps us understand when and where people are visiting our website.

How we use cookies
We use cookies for a number of things across the Potensis website including:

Logging you into Potensis Career Portal
To log you into Potensis Career Portal, we need to store a temporary cookie. This cookie will be automatically deleted after 20 minutes of inactivity, or after you log out.

Auto-logging you into Potensis
By checking “Remember Me on this Computer,” you can choose to store a permanent cookie that allows you to access Potensis without logging in each time. Be careful when you use this option, and only check this when you’re confident that your computer is secure.

Recognising you as a return visitor
Using analytics software and a cookie, we can tell that you’ve visited Potensis before, which helps us understand what parts of the site you’re coming back to see.

Monitoring website traffic and video traffic
We want to know which parts of our website are popular and which parts are putting you to sleep, so we use a cookie to analyse traffic as it moves around the Potensis website.

Understanding how people found us
We want to know how Potensis caught your eye, so we use a cookie to understand how you found Potensis when you visit.

Asking you for your feedback
We don’t have all the answers, so sometimes we run surveys to ask our visitors to help us improve the Potensis website. When we’re running these surveys, we use a cookie to store whether you’ve said “yes” or “no” to participating, or to store that you’ve given feedback.

Personal information and cookies
The only personal information a cookie can contain is information that you supply yourself – a cookie cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Your privacy and security are not compromised when you accept a cookie from the Potensis website. You may set up your computer to reject cookies by following the relevant instructions in the “managing your cookies” section. If you switch off cookies, you may not be able to use parts of our website or your career portal.

We sometimes use cookies to help personally identify you, but we do it in a secure way. Instead of storing personal data about you in a cookie, we store anonymous data on your computer, then combine that data on a secure server with any information that you’ve given us on the Potensis website. For example, if you sign up for our job alerts on the Potensis website, we’ll use this combined data to customise the job alert with information that you’ll find most helpful. Further information about how we use your information is available in our Privacy Policy.
