Cookie Policy

1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. 

Like many other websites, IBA is using also cookies. By means of cookies, IBA automatically obtains certain information about your computer and your internet connection, (e.g. the IP address, browser and operating system used by you).

Cookies have many different features, such as allowing you to navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving the user experience. They can also help ensure that the advertisements you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.

Cookies cannot be used for executing programs or for sending viruses to a computer. The information contained in cookies enables us to make navigation easier for you and to ensure correct display of our web pages.

The data obtained by IBA in this way will never be disclosed to any third parties nor combined with any Personal Data without your consent.

A cookie can be classified by its lifespan, the domain to which it belongs and purpose:

By lifespan, a cookie is either a:

-         Session Cookie which is erased when the user closes the browser

-         Persistent Cookie which remains on your computer/device for a pre-defined period of time.

As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either:

-         Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, IBA) are called "first party cookies". 

-         Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called "third party cookies".  Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics).  The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites

These cookies are:

-         Mandatory cookies – These cookies that allow the technical operation of the website and its features;

-         Performance cookies – These cookies that collect data about the performance of the website and how you use our website. These cookies allow us to improve how the website works;

-         Analytics cookies – These cookies that allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your language) and provide enhanced or customized features.

-         Marketing cookies – These cookies can be set within our website by our advertising partners. They can be used by these companies to profile your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other websites. They do not directly store personal data, but are based on the unique identification of your browser and your Internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, your advertising will be less targeted.

-         Social Network cookies –These cookies are activated by the services offered on social networks that we have added to the website in order to give you the possibility of sharing our content with your network and your knowledge. They also allow us to track your browsing on other websites and to profile your interests. This can have an impact on the content and messages displayed on other websites that you visit. If you do not allow these cookies, you may not be able to use or view these sharing tools.


2      How can I control cookies?

You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. 

You can view Website only with the mandatory cookies. Web browsers are set by default to accept cookies. You may, however, disable the use of cookies (except of mandatory ones) at any time by modifying the Website settings. You can also at any time refuse the installation of all cookies via your browser settings. You should be aware, though, that certain functions of Website may no longer work once you have blocked the use cookies.

Useful information about the technical aspects of Cookie can be found: http://www.allaboutcookies.org

In addition, most advertising networks offer you a way to opt out of targeted advertising.  If you would like to find out more information, please visit http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com

If you have disabled one or more cookies, we can always use information collected by these cookies before the deactivation. However, we cease to collect information via the opted-out cookie.


3     Data retention

There is a difference between Session Cookies and Permanent Cookies. Session Cookies only exist until you close your browser. Permanent Cookies have a longer lifespan and are not automatically deleted once you close your browser.


4      What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website.  We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs").  These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognize when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them.  This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns.  In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

5     What about targeted advertising?

Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this Website and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these.
