IIE Website Cookie Policy

Last Updated: March 20, 2020

When you interact with the IIE Website, we automatically collect information about your use of the Website from your browser in the Website server logs. Whenever you request a page through your browser, the navigation and clickstream data, such as your IP address, browser (and version), operating system, date, time, and the site from which you came are stored in a log file. We use software to create summaries from these statistics so we can evaluate content worth, Website and system administration, and anonymous user analysis. We use cookie technology on our Website, which allows us to recognize a user’s computer and can help make it easier to navigate through the Website. Cookies can record user preferences and other data about the website visit.

Some cookies are deleted when you close your browser – these are known as session cookies. Others remain on your device until they expire or are manually deleted. These are known as persistent cookies. They enable us to remember things about your session as a returning visitor. If you do not want cookies to be stored, you may turn off cookies individually, or you can select the appropriate options on your web browser to delete some or all cookies. However, if you block some or all cookies, you may not be able to use or access all or parts of the Website.



When you use the Website for the first time, cookies that are essential to make the Website operate (essential cookies) will be set, but other cookies will not unless you agreed to those cookies being set at that time. If you have agreed to accept cookies, the Website will remember this and continue to set cookies each time you visit.

Essential cookies enable you to navigate the Website and to use its services and features. Without these necessary cookies, the performance of the Website or services will be affected.
