What are 'cookies'?

'Cookies' are small text files that are stored by the browser (e.g. Firefox, Internet Explorer, or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store such things as user preferences and to recognise your returning visits. You can think of cookies as providing a "memory" for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately.

-Strictly necessary cookies
-Anonymous analytic cookies
-Registration cookies
-Third Party Cookies

----------------------------

Strictly Necessary Cookies

This type of cookie anonymously remembers your visit. It is anonymous and only serves as a way to tie back your session to the server should you wish to login and gain full advantage of the features on the site.

 

A list of the cookies in this category are below:

eZSESSID - controls anonymous "state" between your computer and the website – required if you want to login; this is classed as ANONYMOUS state.  
             
is_logged_in - Companion cookie with eZSESSID which serves as a key / value pair with eZSESSID – required if you want to be / stay logged in – without it, you would never be able to stay logged in. This is only set when you login.

Anonymous analytics cookies:

Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party (Google) generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don't, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site. Even when signed in to IP EXPO, these cookies cannot be used to identify individuals; they are used for statistical purposes only.

 

A list of the cookies in this category are below:

 _ga -   Used to distinguish users.  

----------------------------

Registration cookies

When you login to the IP EXPO website, we generate cookies that signal whether you are signed in or not. Our servers use these cookies to work out which account you are signed in with, and if you are allowed access to a particular feature. We also set a small cookie to determine your source - i.e. if you have visited from an email, or direct mail. We use this cookie to better understand what our most effective marketing channels are and to better understand your needs for future campaigns.

 

A list of the cookies in this category are below:

utm_source -   Used to track marketing activity. Contains a small anonymous bespoke code which helps identify a campaign type – such as Email or Direct Mail.  
utm_medium -   Used to track marketing activity. Contains a small anonymous bespoke code which helps identify a campaign type – such as Email or Direct Mail.  
utm_campaign -   Used to track marketing activity. Contains a small anonymous bespoke code which helps identify a campaign type – such as Email or Direct Mail.

Third party cookies

On some pages of ipexpo.co.uk, third parties may also set their own anonymous cookies, for the purposes of tracking the success of their application, or customising the application for you. Because of how cookies work, ipexpo.co.uk cannot access these cookies, nor can the third parties access the data in cookies used by ipexpo.co.uk.

For example, when you share an article using a social media sharing button on the IP EXPO, the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this.

How do I turn cookies off?

It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website. For example, we cannot tell if you are signed in without using cookies, so you would not be able to add sessions to your visit planner or take part in Social Speak.

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings at a very granular level. These settings will typically be found in the 'options' or 'preferences' menu of your browser. In order to understand these settings, the following links may be helpful, otherwise you should use the 'Help' option in your browser for more details.

Cookie settings in Internet Explorer

Cookie settings in Firefox

Cookie settings in Chrome

Cookie settings in Safari and iOS.

The browser is the one place which presents all of the opt-out controls you require.
