Privacy, cookies and language preferences

The only usages of cookies in Mathematics Department sites which might be questioned as not being absolutely essential to the site inner workings deal with:

  • registering the user's language preference within the domain to minimize the number of times the user may need to follow language specific links and
  • the default list of seminars and research courses one wishes to follow when accessing

You may stop this by disallowing cookies in our domain but then it would be advisable to explicitly set language preferences in your browser. Most users do not do this and end up with an implicit language preference corresponding to the interface language of the browser. Also you would end up seeing the full list of seminar series and research courses.

Anyway there are absolutely no circumstances where cookies or other technologies are used for questionable privacy purposes.

Registration of originating IP address, browser, etc., is made for the usual security and statistical purposes in logs and through Google Analytics.
