The Analytics and its cookies

The InterConnect project website uses an open-source analytics platform, Matomo (formerly Piwik), fully controlled by the European Commission. This platform enables the protection of end-user personal data thanks to features such as IP address de-identification. On top of that, on this website we have created a feature to manage users’ consent to the collection of users’ browsing experience for anonymised statistics.

  • Screen resolution of user’s device
  • Time in local visitor’s time-zone

  • Links to an outside domain that were clicked (Outlink)
  • Pages generation time (the time it takes for webpages to be generated by the webserver and then downloaded by the visitor: Page speed)
