A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on the visitor’s computer or mobile device.
The information on this page lists the cookies that this website uses and describes their purpose. You will also find some more detail here about cookies relating to our social media channels and Google Analytics, the service we use for our statistics.
Social media cookies
The C²DH is active on the following social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn and Vimeo. These communities strengthen our online presence and visibility.
- The C²DH website does not set cookies with the display of links to our social media channels when you are browsing our website.
- You can watch C²DH videos, which we upload on our Vimeo page. You can also follow links from our website to Facebook and Twitter.
- By clicking on the Facebook or Twitter button on our website, you will be re-directed to those websites, which have their own cookie and privacy policies over which we have no control.
The C²DH is using session cookies to ensure the correct usage of the website. Cookies used by the C²DH are deleted after the session.
Persistent cookies are saved on your computer and are not deleted automatically when you close your browser, unlike a session cookie, which is deleted when you close your browser.
- Google Analytics is a service which monitors and evaluates the effectiveness and efficiency of the C²DH website.
- This platform enables the protection of end-user personal data thanks to features such as IP address de-identification and a mechanism for users to opt-out so that their browsing is not processed for analytics purposes.
- Google provides information about the cookies used by Google Analytics.
- The cookies used by Google Analytics will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
Google Analytics is configured to use the domain “c2dh.uni.lu” and to store first-party cookies that expire after 2 years.
Cookies are used by the C²DH to track the following information about visitors. We use this information to prepare aggregated, anonymous statistics reports of visitor activity:
- IP address (masked)
- Location: country, region, city, approximate latitude and longitude (Geolocation)
- Date and time of the request (visit to the site)
- Title of the page being viewed (Page Title)
- URL of the page being viewed (Page URL)
- URL of the page that was viewed prior to the current page (Referrer URL)
- Screen resolution of user's device
- Time in local visitor's time-zone
- Files that were clicked and downloaded (Download)
- 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)
- Main language of the browser being used (Accept-Language header)
- Browser version, browser plugins (PDF, Flash, Java, …) operating system version, device identifier (User-Agent header)
- Language of the visited page

Do not track preferences
Do not track is a function that allows visitors to opt out from being tracked by websites for any purpose including the use of analytics services, advertising networks and social platforms. Do not track options are available in a number of browsers including:
- If you enable do not track in your web browser, Google Analytics will respect your choice;
- If you have enabled the do not track function, you will not be tracked. This is in addition to your opting-out of the aggregation and analysis of data for our website statistics;
- If you have not enabled the do not track option but you choose to opt-out, the cookie ‘ga-disable-UA’ will be stored in your browser. All visitors with a ga-disable-UA cookie will not be tracked by Google Analytics;
- If you have disabled all cookies from your browser, we will still collect some general data about your browsing (e.g. a record of a visitor to our website) but they will be less accurate and your visit will not be tracked.
Restricted access to information
All analytics data communication is encrypted via HTTPS protocol. The analytical reports generated can only be accessed through by authorised University staff dealing with Google Analytics or by duly authorised external sub-contractors, who may be required to analyse, develop and/or regularly maintain certain websites.
Masking of IP addresses
Note: Institution, city and country origin are determined from the full IP, then stored and aggregated before a mask is applied. Google Analytics uses an IP de-identification mechanism that automatically masks a portion of each visitor's IP (Internet Protocol), effectively making it impossible to identify a particular visitor via the sole IP address.
Google Analytics automatically deletes visitors' logs after 25 months. Anonymised and aggregated data are stored for an indefinite period by the University for analysis purposes.
Specific questions about the storage and use of Google Analytics data by the University can be sent to us by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicable law and attribution of jurisdiction
Luxembourg law is applicable and the courts of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg have exclusive jurisdiction over any dispute regarding this site.
