(revised May 2018)
The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation – a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU) – is in effect as of May 25, 2018. The GDPR is intended to provide better protection for the EU citizen’s privacy and to lay down uniform rules so that the citizen gains more control over how his/her personal data are used.
A cookie is a small piece of data sent from a website and stored on the user's computer by the user's web browser while the user is using the internet. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to retain relevant information (such as items added to a shopping cart in an online store) or to record the user's browsing activity (including clicking certain buttons, logging in, or recording which pages were visited in the past).
The EIASM server collects anonymous information, such as the IP address of your computer, the browser software used, the operating system, access times, and pages visited. A cookie in no way gives EIASM access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share.
