4- USE OF COOKIES AND YOUR PRIVACY

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, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

Eu2P's strictly necessary cookies

System session cookie Purpose(s)
https_eu2p_frontoffice
  • Enable the server to know a particular computer user is logged in (as an identified person) in the protected area ("My Eu2P") and is thus granted access to related account and training programme application data and services
  • Contain anonymous session ID tokens
Security and data protection aspects

These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information. Session cookies are destroyed when an identified user signs out from the "My Eu2P" area or expire when no new server page request has been performed for several minutes.

Data access and removal rights

These session cookies are necessary for the "My Eu2P" private section to function and cannot be retrieved from nor switched off in our systems. You can set your web browser in order to block these cookies or alert you before authorizing or discarding them. Please note that by doing so, the "My Eu2P" private section of the website will then not work. If you are a registered "My Eu2P" website user and wish to sign in, you will need to allow "per-session" cookies use for your web browser.

Eu2P's performance cookies

Eu2P is using Piwik to analyse website visitors' profile anonymously. This enables improving Eu2P website services by analysing our visitors' browser versions, installed plug-ins, screen resolutions, computer or mobile devices... We can measure how many visitors came on our site, which pages they visited most and how much time they stayed on a page to analyse and improve our contents. We can also analyse where users are coming from (country, website links followed, search engine used, search engine keyword choices...) to improve our visibility to new users, who may be interested by our training programmes.

Visitor cookie Purpose(s)
_pk_id.* 1
  • Store anonymous and unique identifier key, the number of visit and timestamps
  • Used for avoiding counting a new visitor each time a user is visiting our site
  • Used for anonymously associating the collected information about visited pages, browsing devices and origins with each same visitor browser (to later enable analysis of the Eu2P website traffic)
_pk_ses.* 1
  • Used to group page views within visits
_pk_ref.* 1
  • Contains the referrer URL to enable analysing visitors' origin
1 * means a randomized string containg numbers, dots and/or characters
Security and data protection aspects

5- SECURITY

We take security very seriously. The personal data we collect about you is stored in limited access servers behind a firewall. We have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect on-line.

All our staff members are made aware of the security procedures they must follow when handling personal information. Data is protected from unauthorised access and we are confident no one will be able to access your personal information unlawfully.

We also protect data that is being transferred. As long as your web browser supports the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), any personal data transmitted from your browser to our web service, or from the service to your browser, will be encrypted.

While we do our best to keep your information secure, nothing sent over the Internet is 100% secure, so you should use your best judgment when communicating with us.


6- LINKS TO THIRD-PARTY WEBSITES

As outlined in the Eu2P website Terms of Use, we may link to other websites that are not within our control. While we will take all reasonable precautions to make sure that other organizations that we deal with have good security practices, we are not responsible for the privacy practices of those organizations whose websites may be linked to our service. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

We will not transfer, disclose, sell, distribute or lease your personal information to third parties unless we have your permission or are required to do so by law.
