Cookies (Note – this overlaps and in some cases duplicates your privacy page of earlier)
A cookie is a text-only string of information that is created and stored on your computer by your browser. It contains information about your visit that your browser uses to personalise certain pages or elements. For statistical analysis purposes, a cookie may also be used to pass a randomly generated and anonymous unique number to our servers. Cookies cannot be used by themselves to identify you. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the “lifetime” of the cookie, and a value, usually a text value or a randomly generated unique number.
If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can easily modify your browser to reject all cookies or to notify you whenever one is about to be placed on your computer. However, if cookies are not accepted you may not be able to use all the interactive features of the ICON website. You are therefore encouraged to allow cookies in order to enjoy the ICON site fully.
Most standard web servers, including ICON’s, use log files, which record information such as:
• service provider IP addresses;
• browser versions;
• referring websites;
• search terms used;
• average number of pages requested;
• average duration of visit;
• total visitor traffic;
• information gathered for aggregate use.
