Generally speaking, you may visit the home page of this Site while remaining anonymous and not revealing any personal information. However, to take courses and qualify for certification you will need to use LinkedIn™ OAuth 2.0 user authorisation and authentication to create a PFUser Account.

THE PIXEL FARM uses your IP address to help diagnose problems with the Site servers, to administer the Site, to monitor Site usage, and to gather broad demographic information. Your IP address is used to help identify you and to aid in your navigation through the Site as determined by your customisation options, if any. THE PIXEL FARM also may aggregate the IP address with other information to create anonymous Site statistics. THE PIXEL FARM does not, however, use your IP address to collect personal information about you.

This Site also uses “cookies” to provide customisation options at login, or to keep track of where you are in the Site in order to provide the correct customisation options when you use the Site.
