These sites use cookies. Cookies are small text files sent to and saved on the user's computer. They do not harm the user's computer or files. Cookies are used for analyzing the use of online services, developing these services, and improving online marketing.

We use both first-party cookies (cookies set by Tampere higher education community) and third-party cookies (cookies set by parties other than Tampere higher education community that send data to these parties when you use the our website).

Cookies by Tampere higher education community

First-party cookies (set by Tampere higher education community) are necessary for the functioning of some of our online forms (such as the feedback form).

First-party cookies also required for authorized users to be able to log in to the website administration interface and update the sites.

Third-party providers of network analytics

In order to develop the content, usability and accessibility of our website, Tampere higher education community uses third-party cookies (Google Analytics, Hotjar, UXtweak and Siteimprove). These third-party cookies provide us with data about how visitors use our website, what device and browser they use, and other relevant information. With Google Analytics we use ip-anonymization, which means we delete last numbers of visitors IP-address before handling and storing data in Google Analytics. However, cookie information from Google services may be transferred to and stored on Google's servers, some of which may be located outside the EU.

Third-party plugins

Our website includes links to third-party services and embedded plugins for services such as Google and YouTube. This content comes directly from the third-party services and allows these parties to gather data on their users to the extent their own privacy policies permit. Social media plugins have been deleted.

The information can be used to target marketing efforts.
