Managing cookies

The user is informed that during his visits to the site a cookie may be installed on his computer.

We use two types of cookies on the site to improve the interactivity of the site and our services.

Audience measurement cookies

In order to adapt the site to the demands of its visitors, we measure the number of visits, the number of page views as well as the activity of visitors to the site and their frequency of return. Google Analytics, the statistical tool used by UNIL OPAL, generates the following cookies:

_ga, _gid, _utma, _utmz
Purpose: Google Analytics tracking
Shelf life: up to 12 months

To respect your data and the legislation in force, we have by default anonymized the IP addresses sent to Google Analytics tools. The last eight bits of the IP address are therefore systematically erased using the “anonymizeIP” function to protect your anonymity.
