Basic information

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on a website user’s hard drive. Cookies help website administrators to manage those websites and improve the quality of the content provided.

What is device recognition? Device recognition means mechanisms that allow the “recognition” of the type of device used by a user to connect to a website. Those mechanisms also permit the identification of the operating system used on that device, the time zone from which connection is made, the screen size and resolution, etc. These mechanisms are designed to adapt the appearance, size and other website parameters to suit the particular device. Such information is not used to identify a specific individual.

What other information does Doctoralia use? Doctoralia uses information stored in system logs (e.g. an IP address) which derives from how Internet connections generally work. That information is used for technical purposes relating to administration of our servers. In addition, IP addresses are used to collect general and statistical demographic data (e.g. about the region from which the connection originates).

Doctoralia uses cookie files and other technologies and information that support management of its websites. For easy reference, cookie files and other similar technologies will be collectively referred to as “cookies”.
