Analytics cookies

AT Internet is the web analytics tool selected by the European Parliament to monitor its websites.

We have configured this tool in order to limit as much as possible the collection of personal data of our users. For instance, we have implemented the IP address de-identification, which automatically masks a portion of each visitor's IP (Internet Protocol), making it impossible to identify a particular European Parliament visitor via the sole IP address.

The only data we track is the following, always with the aim of improving our websites via aggregated and anonymous statistics reports on visitors’ activities.

  • IP address (anonymised)
  • Sources (types, campaigns, domains, …)
  • Contents being viewed (title of the page, editorial pages settings, path of pages, URL and canonical URL, language, …)
  • Geolocation (country, region, town)
  • Technical profiles (devices, OS, browsers, screen size of user, …)
  • Periods (date and time of the visit to the site, user’s time zone)
  • Campaigns
  • Site search
  • Events (clicks on our contents, on action buttons, …)
  • Files that were clicked and downloaded
  • Domains (links to an external website, referrer website)

Applications and server logs data collected

For technical security, performance purposes and assistance, the European Parliament records the activities of its technical infrastructures and its applications. We have configured them in order to limit as much as possible the collection of personal data of our users.

The only data we track on our infrastructures, always in the aim of security and monitoring, is the following:

  • IP address
  • Date and timeslot of the connection
  • Part of the European Parliament’s website visited
  • Operating system
  • Connexion to our applications
  • Volume of data loaded
  • IP address of the website
  • Protocole used (http; https; rtmp, etc.)

The operational level data is recorded on daily log files from 30 days to six months then it is backup from six months to one year only with the aim of monitoring them for technical or security reasons. Data is automatically deleted at the end of the defined period.

All data collected by our applications is notified to our Data Protection Officer (DPO) through a dedicated notification process stored in the “Data Protection Register”.
