Privacy Policy

When you navigate the IIAHK website, read pages, or download information, we will automatically gather and store certain information about your visit. In order to ensure our websites are as useful and effective an information source as they can be, we analyze information that identifies visitors by categories such as the location of visitors (by domain, not by personal e-mail address) and browser types. We also measure, in the aggregate, indicators such as number of visits, average time spent on the sites, and pages viewed. The IIAHK uses these statistics to improve site content and usability. However, this information does not identify visitors personally.

However, when a visitor enters an e-mail address and password obtained by the means described above on an IIAHK website for the purpose of logging in to restricted pages, a "temporary cookie" is deployed. This cookie — a small text file stored temporarily on the visitor's browser — enables the website to "remember" this authentication information during movement from one page to another. This makes it unnecessary to log in again on each page. The cookie will expire when the visitor leaves and no personal data is retained. In addition, to help prevent unauthorized users from using your identifying information, the cookie will expire if your session is idle for approximately 20 minutes. If you have set your Internet browser to reject cookies, access may be denied to secured areas of The IIAHK's websites.
