  1. Use of Cookies

The ETHP website uses “cookies” to help personalize and maximize your online experience. Cookies are small amounts of data which often include unique, non-personal identifiers. They enable the website to recognize you and keep track of your preferences. The use of cookies enables us to deliver a faster and more personalized website experience by “remembering” your device and how you interacted with the website.

Three types of cookies may be used during your visit to the ETHP website:

  • “Session” cookies, which are not permanently stored on your hard drive and are permanently deleted from your computer after two hours of inactivity or when you end your session, are used solely to help you to navigate around the site;
  • “Persistent” cookies, which remain on your computer for a period of time so that the website can recognize you when you return; and
  • “Third-party” cookies used by our sponsors and advertisers to measure the effectiveness of their advertising.

Examples of how cookies personalize your website experience and save you time are as follows:

  • When you watch a video clip or listen to an audio clip through the ETHP website, a cookie may take note of which type of clip (high or low bandwidth) you prefer to use on your device. Note, however, that you can change your video and audio preferences at any time or choose a player each time you view or listen to a clip.
  • Where applicable, cookies can be used to store username and password information so that you don’t have to re-enter all of your information every time you visit the website.

ETHP website analytic platforms use cookies to track user traffic patterns in order to determine the usefulness of the website’s information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information. Note: ETHP does not correlate this information with data about individual users, nor does it share this information or sell it to any third party.

Persistent cookies will remain on your computer after you have left ETHP’s website and will expire when you log out of the website, or 60 days after your last visit for security cookies, or two years after your last visit for advertisement and information notice cookies.

Please note that while most web browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you do have the ability to disable cookies if you wish through changing your Internet browser settings. It may also be possible to change your browser settings to enable acceptance of specific cookies. For more information on enabling and disabling cookies, please refer to the help section on your web browser.
