Privacy & cookies policy
IAM COMPACT respects its visitors' privacy and collects only the absolutely necessary information in order to provide its services to its visitors. IAM COMPACT provides two services to its users, namely its website and its electronic communications (newsletters and press releases).
What are cookies?
Cookies are files that contain a small amount of information and are stored on the browser or hard drive of your computer or device.
Google Analytics (GA)
In order to understand how visitors perceive a specific webpage or file (i.e. a document, picture, an interactive infographic, etc.) and analyse the effectiveness of the website, IAM COMPACT uses the Google Analytics service from Google Corporation Inc., which collects the necessary data.
IP Anonymisation: To avoid collection of personally identifying information, IAM COMPACT uses IP anonymisation by removing the last octet of the IP address prior to its storage.
Opt-out: By default, the browsing experience of website visitors is tracked by Google Analytics in order to produce anonymised statistics. However, Google has developed the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on to provide users with the ability to prevent their data from being used by Google Analytics. IAM COMPACT respects its visitors' choices and whenever our server receives a "Do Not Track" request, the Google Analytics tracker is disabled. You can find the add-on here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/
