Cookie Policy

Effective date: October 2018

This is the Cookie Policy of the American Evaluation Association (referred to as AEA, “we”, “us” or “our” in this cookie policy). This cookie policy will inform you as to how we use cookies on our website.

  1. What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that can be stored on your computer when you visit websites. Information is saved in this text file to ensure a smooth and interactive experience on the internet.

Cookies usually also have an expiration date. For example, some cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser (so-called session cookies), while others can be stored longer on your computer, sometimes until you delete them manually (so-called permanent cookies).

  1. Why do we use cookies?

We use two (2) types of cookies on our website,

  1. Cookies for functional purposes; and
  1. Cookies for analytical purposes.

We use functional cookies to keep the content of our website up-to-date and running. This means that these cookies are essential to the proper functioning of this website. It is not possible to refuse these cookies if you want to visit our website.

We use other cookies for analytical purposes. We install these analytical cookies to quantify the visits (traffic) on the website. This allows us to know how many times a particular page has been consulted. We use this information only to improve the content of our website or as a basis for a new campaign by determining certain topics of great interest.

The software that uses these analytical cookies is installed on our own servers. This concerns therefore "first party" cookies (direct cookies). This means that we completely control the information collected through these cookies. No data are sent to third parties. Therefore, we can guarantee that this information will not be used for other purposes. The use of these "first party" cookies for analytical purposes is subject to your prior consent. Thus, you can refuse the installation of these cookies on your device.

  1. How can I see which cookies are installed on my device and how can I remove them?

If you want to know which cookies are installed on your device or if you want to delete certain cookies, you can use the available settings in your browser. Your browser settings may allow only certain cookies to be deleted, not all.
