Technical and regulatory information
ARIS2 automatically records the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of visitors. The IP address is a unique number assigned to every computer on the internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the internet (it is a "dynamic" address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, the IP address that we collect may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because, with some broadband connections, your IP address doesn't change (it is "static") and could be associated with your personal computer.
As well as recording the IP addresses of users, ARIS2 may also keep track of sites that users visited immediately prior to visiting the ARIS2 website and the search terms they used to find it. We keep track of the pages visited on the ARIS2 website, the amount of time spent on those pages, and the types of searches done on them. Your searches remain confidential and anonymous. ARIS2 uses this information only for statistical purposes to find out which pages users find most useful and to improve the website.
ARIS2 also captures and stores information that you transmit. This may include:
- Browser/Device type/version
- Operating system used
- Media Access Control (MAC) address
- Date and time of the server request
- The volume of data transferred
External links behavior
Some ARIS2 websites link to other sites created and maintained by other public- and/or private-sector organizations. ARIS2 provides these links solely for your information and convenience. When you transfer to an outside website, you are leaving the ARIS2 domain, and ARIS2 information management policies no longer apply. ARIS2 encourages you to read the privacy statement of each external website that you visit before you provide any personal data.
Cookies and web beacons
Cookies and web beacons are electronic placeholders that are placed on your device by websites to track your individual movements on that website over time. ARIS2 uses both session-based cookies (which last only for the duration of the user's session) and persistent cookies (which remain on your device and provide information about the session you are in and wait for the next time you use that site again).
These cookies and web beacons provide useful information to ARIS2, enabling us to recognize repeat users, facilitate the user's access to and use of our sites, allow us to track usage behavior, and balance the usage of our websites on all ARIS2 web servers.
Tracking cookies, third-party cookies, and other technologies such as web beacons may be used to process additional information, enable non-core functionalities on the ARIS2 website, and enable third-party functions (such as a social media "share" link). We may also include web beacons and other similar technology in promotional email messages to determine whether the messages have been opened.
Do Not Track (DNT)
The online advertising industry has self-regulatory initiatives designed to provide consumers a choice in the types of ads they may see online and to conveniently opt out from online behavioral ads served by some or all of the companies participating in these programs. Our websites do not respond to DNT consumer browser settings.
Collaboration with authorities
ARIS2 has appointed and mandated a Data Protection Officer by NRMC.PT represents the regulatory authorities inside the ARIS2 Journal, and in return represents the ARIS2 organization to regulatory authorities.
The ARIS2 Data Protection officer will ensure proper communication with the relevant regulatory authority for privacy. The privacy officer will lead investigative action, complaint handling, and data breach notification. The privacy officer will also monitor regulatory changes and consult the regulatory authority where implementation of a regulatory or technological change leads to doubt.
