What Are Cookies
For more general information on cookies see the Wikipedia article on HTTP Cookies.
You can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser (see your browser Help for how to do this). Be aware that disabling cookies will affect the functionality of this and many other websites that you visit. Disabling cookies will usually result in also disabling certain functionality and features of the this site. Therefore it is recommended that you do not disable cookies.
The Cookies We Set
Analytical cookies for the purposes of periodic maintenance and ensuring the best possible service for users. Websites normally use analytical cookies to gather statistical data on the activity.
Our cookies are not used to identify you personally. They’re just there to make the site work better for you.
We use this information to prepare aggregated, anonymous statistics reports of visitor activity.
First party cookies are set by the website you’re visiting. Only that website can read them.
The data collected is masked and cannot be used to identify a particular visitor. They will not be shared with any other organisation for marketing, market research or commercial purposes.
Persistent cookies are saved on your computer and are not deleted automatically when you close your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you close your browser. For persistent cookies, a random ID is generated, which allows Piwik to identify when a user returns to the site. All persistent cookies have an expiration date, after which they are automatically removed from the user's device.
Note: Institution, city and country origin are determined from the full IP, then stored and aggregated before a mask is applied. Piwik uses an IP de-identification mechanism that automatically masks a portion of each visitor's IP (Internet Protocol), effectively making it impossible to identify a particular visitor via the sole IP address.
Hopefully that has clarified things for you and as was previously mentioned if there is something that you aren't sure whether you need or not it's usually safer to leave cookies enabled in case it does interact with one of the features you use on our site. This Cookies Policy was created with the help of the Generator of GDPR Cookies Policy Template and the GDPR Cookies Policy Template.
