You should also be aware that each time you visit a website two general levels of information about their visit can be retained. The first level comprises statistical and other analytical information collected on an aggregate and non-individual specific basis of all browsers who visit the site, and the second is information which is personal or particular to a specific visitor who chooses to provide that information.

The statistical and analytical information provides Irish Life Investment Managers with general and not individually specific information about the number of people who visit the Irish Life Investment Managers website; the number of people who return to this site; the pages that they visit; and where they were before they came to this site and the page in the site at which they exited. This information helps us monitor traffic on our website so that we can manage the site's capacity and efficiency. It also helps Irish Life Investment Managers to understand which parts of this site are most popular, and generally to assess user behaviour and characteristics in order to measure interest in and use of the various areas of the site.

"Cookies" are small text files that a website can use in order to recognise visitors who revisit a site so as to facilitate their ongoing access to and use of the site.
