A cookie is a small file that is placed on your device that allows our site to remember certain things about you. The AdventureMed WLS site uses cookies when you shop for and purchase courses and modules.

You may choose to disable cookies in your web browser settings. If you do not accept cookies, you may not be able to use some features of the AdventureMed WLS website.

We use WooCommerce to manage the shopping cart and purchase functions on our website. To keep track of cart data, WooCommerce makes use of 3 cookies:

  • woocommerce_cart_hash
  • woocommerce_items_in_cart
  • wp_woocommerce_session

The first two cookies contain information about the cart as a whole and helps WooCommerce know when the cart data changes. The final cookie (wp_woocommerce_session) contains a unique code for each customer so that it knows where to find the cart data in the database for each customer. No personal information is stored within these cookies.

We make every effort to keep our cookies policy up-to-date; however, the information is subject to change prior to our updates. We recommend checking the WooCommerce website if you have concerns about the cookies used by the tool.
