Site Visit Data
ORIMA Research does not use any ‘persistent’ cookies on either its main website or within its on-line surveys. While our online surveys may use ‘session’ cookies if these are allowed by the user’s browser, these cookies only contain information relating to the current survey and expire after the user exits the web site. This type of cookie is not generally considered to be a privacy or security concern (see, for example, the Better Practice in Online Service Delivery prepared by the Australian Government Information Management Office). Our surveys will still function if session cookies are blocked by the user’s browser.

This information does not identify you personally and you remain anonymous. Analysis of this information assists with the improvement of this site.
