A cookie is a piece of information that is placed automatically on your computer’s hard drive when you access certain websites. Cookies may be of different nature:
Cookies are set to expire when the information is no longer needed or after a maximum period of 13 months.
IDEOGEN and its providers may collect information about you by using cookies, tracking pixels and other technologies (collectively, “Tools”). We use this information to better understand, customize and improve user experience when it comes to our Website, services and offerings as well as to manage our advertising.
For example, we use web analytics services that leverage these Tools to help us understand how users engage with and navigate our Website, e.g. how and when pages of the Website are visited and by how many users. We are also able to offer you a more customized and relevant experience on our Website using these Tools, by delivering content based on your preferences and interests. Once we have collected your personal data, e.g. through a registration or a request for certain materials, we may associate this personal data with information gathered through the Tools. This allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality on the Website.
Your IP address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider. An IP address may be identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user accesses the Website, along with the time of the visit and the pages visited. Collecting IP addresses is standard practice and is, as a rule, done automatically. We use IP addresses for purposes such as calculating usage levels, diagnosing server problems and administering the Website. We may also derive your approximate location from your IP address, but we cannot directly identify you.
We may also use Flash Local Shared Objects (“Flash LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of the Website. If you do not want us to do so, you can adjust the settings of your Flash Player so as to block Flash LSO storage using the Website Storage Settings Panel. Further, you can control Flash LSOs by going into the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions. Please note that some portions of our Website may not work properly if you refuse or restrict Flash LSOs.
