Definition of Cookies
Cookies can be “session” or “persistent” cookies. A session cookie is a cookie that is automatically deleted when the user closes the browser, whereas a persistent cookie is a cookie that remains stored in the user’s terminal device until it reaches a defined expiration date.
Cookies implemented by the Consortium
In particular, the Consortium on its website uses:
- “necessary cookies”, either persistent and session cookies. Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. The website cannot function properly without these cookies.
- “marketing cookies”, which are only sessions cookies. Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers.
Specific provisions on Google Analytics
On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). For further information please consult the following URL: https://iot-ngin.eu/index.php/privacy-policy.
The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the Data Subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such Personal Data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the Data Subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These Personal Data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these Personal Data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.
The Data Subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the Data Subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.
How to disable or remove the cookies
The Data Subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the Data Subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.
