Privacy and cookies


We use cookies and track visits to gather information on what information channels work best and be able to reach more people.

We do not collect any identifying information.

Tracking is performed by our self-hosted installation of Matomo at analytics.poul.org.

The following non-identifying information is collected by our Matomo instance:

  • Anonymized IP addresses (for example, 12.34.xxx.xxx)
  • GeoIP location data, derived from the anonymized IP address
  • Information sent by the browser, such as browser engine and version, operating system, device model, language
  • Website interaction data such as referrer, page visits duration

This information is stored within the European Union and is not disclosed to anybody for no reason whatsoever, unless required by the law.

The data is used exclusively by our “social media” team to better find out how people get to know about our events. For example, we would like to know whether people find out about us from the PoliTamTam Polimi newsletter, our banners hanged around the campuses or our social media accounts.

Tracking is performed exclusively on our website poul.org, some of its subdomains, in some pages of our GitLab Pages instance at poul.page and subdomains.
