Use of Cookies

The IMPRESS Project use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. They cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. Cookies in themselves do not identify individual users but identify only the computer used. Many websites use cookies to track traffic flows, whenever users visit those websites.

One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize IMPRESS Project pages, or register with IMPRESS Project site or services, a cookie helps IMPRESS Project to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same IMPRESS Project  , the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the IMPRESS Project features that you customized.

When users login to the IMPRESS Project , their computers will automatically be issued with ‘session cookies’ to assign a unique ID. This cookie is essential for the online application to operate. The IMPRESS Project uses some third-party cookies to measure use of the website including number of visitors, how frequently pages are viewed, and the city and country of origin of users. This helps to determine what is popular and can influence future content and development. For this purpose, IMPRESS Project uses Google Analytics to measure and analyse usage of the website. The information collected by IMPRESS Project may include IP Address, pages visited, browser type and operating system. The data will not be used to identify any user personally.

IMPRESS Project session cookies are deleted on departure from the website. However, those from third parties may persist. Users have the opportunity to set their computers to accept all cookies or not to receive cookies at any time. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the IMPRESS Project and certain personalised services provided to the user.
