While most of the time this information is depersonalised, if this information relates to an identifiable individual, IIPCIC will treat this information as personal information. IIPCIC may also, without limitations, collect and use the following type of information when users visit and/or interact with IIPCIC on the website:

  • Google Analytics: IIPCIC uses Google Analytics which allows it to see information on user website activities including, but not limited to, page views, source and time spent on our website. This information is depersonalized and is displayed as numbers, meaning that it cannot be tracked back to individuals. Users may opt-out of IIPCIC’s use of Google Analytics by visiting the Google Analytics opt-out page.

  • Google AdWords: IIPCIC uses Google AdWords Remarketing to advertise IIPCIC across the Internet and to advertise on third party websites (including Google) to previous visitors to the website. AdWords remarketing will display ads to users based on what parts of the IIPCIC website they have viewed by placing a cookie on the users’ web browser. It could mean that IIPCIC advertises to previous visitors who haven’t completed a task on the site or this could be in the form of an advertisement on the Google search results page, or a site in the Google Display Network. This cookie does not in any way identify the user or give access to the users’ computer or mobile device. The cookie is only used to indicate to other websites that the user has visited a particular page on the website, so that they may show the user ads relating to that page. If users do not wish to participate in Google AdWords Remarketing, they can opt out by visiting Google’s Ads Preferences Manager.
