AIMS-NEI uses cookies, which are text files placed on Visitor devices to evaluate usage patterns, so that AIMS-NEI can improve both content and distribution.  The information can also be used to establish continuity between requests, to personalize a site to a Visitor’s preferences, to authenticate a Visitor’s log-in, to analyze web traffic, to monitor and ensure the security of the network, and to help diagnose problems with the AIMS-NEI’s websites.  Visitors may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on their browsers; however if the settings are adjusted, a Visitor may not be able to use the full functionality of the websites.

Functional cookies

Visitors are sometimes requested to sign-up or log-in in order to use some of our online services.

When a Visitor enters their username and password, a cookie may be set identifying them as a logged-in user. This cookie is removed either when they log out, or when they have not visited the site for some time and their login expires. These systems are typically those that deal explicitly with personal data.

Though this cookie will identify the Visitor as a specific person on the system, the AIMS-NEI does not pass any information to market research companies, advertisers or other third parties.
