ARIA IDSS Cookie Policy 

We use small files called “cookies” stored locally on your device in order to provide the ARIA IDSS service to you. All cookies set as by ARIA IDSS are strictly necessary for the proper functioning of the site. Where these cookies contain personal data (such as an assigned identifier) then we process these data using the legal basis of legitimate interests. Please see our privacy policy for more information on how we use your personal data. You may choose to refuse cookies, for example by changing settings in your browser, but this may cause parts of the service to not function for you, for example you may not be able to log in. 

ARIA IDSS is the Identity and Security Service provided by Instruct-ERIC. Cookies where the issuer is Instruct-ERIC are called first party cookies, as they are set by us. Cookies from any other organisation are called third party cookies. 

Cookies needed for authentication 

The following cookies are required to log you in to ARIA IDSS, and to keep you logged in until timeout (10 hours).

Third party cookies 

If you use a third-party identity provider to log in to ARIA IDSS (for example Google, ORCID, or a home university), you will be redirected to their login pages where they may issue you with cookies. These cookies are not set directly by ARIA IDSS, but they may be required for you to log in with that identity provider. Please consult the cookie policies of the identity provider itself for full information about their cookies. You may alternatively avoid third party cookies by choosing to register directly for an ARIA IDSS account.

We may update  this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies.
