Third Party Cookies
Some cookies that have been set on our websites are not related to Irish Medtech Association. When you visit a page with content embedded from, for example, a social networking site, these service providers may set their own cookies on your web browser.
We do not control the use of these cookies as cookies can only be accessed by the party who originally set them. Below is a list of the third party cookies in use on our website:
As well as using cookies on our website, we also use invisible 1×1 pixel tags, known as 'clear pixels'. These pixels are used to collect statistical information about visitors to our website and the pages they view. Irish Medtech Association use these pixels to understand what content is popular and how the layout of the website might be improved.
Also, clear pixels are used in each [eZine and newsletter] sent by our system. If you receive the HTML formatted version of our [eZine and/or newsletter] and your email is configured to download images, a record of whether or not you open the email (and, if you open the email, how frequently you open it) will be saved with your subscriber history. Your engagement with the content of the communication (such as which links you click on) will also be recorded.
We use this information in aggregated form to give us an indication of the popularity of content and to help us make decisions about future content and formatting. We may also use the information to publish more content relevant to certain categories of subscribers in future issues and to unsubscribe recipients who haven't opened our emails for a while.
