4ch-project.eu uses the following cookies:

Single-session cookies are used for technical purposes, such as generating aggregated statistics about how the website is used. Single-session cookies may use a unique identifier, but do not publicly expose personal information.

Multi-session or persistent cookies are used to recognize a computer that has previously visited 4ch-project.eu, which can improve a user’s experience, for example, by continuing preference settings from previous visits.

  • 4ch-project.eu currently uses single session and multi-session cookies to ensure that 4ch-project.eu displays correctly and measure website metrics, such as which pages are popular and how often people visit the website.

These cookies do not capture personally identifiable information, such as your name or email, or track interactions outside of 4ch-project.eu and other pages.

This list does not include cookies associated with third-party content or functionality included on 4ch-project.eu (see Third-Party Cookies).

The 4CH Project uses a third-party analytics provider (currently Google Analytics) to analyze the data collected through the cookies. The third-party analytics provider does not receive personally identifiable information through these cookies and does not combine, match, or cross-reference 4ch-project.eu information with any other information. We have also limited the provider’s ability to see your full IP address (a process known as “IP masking”). Please review Google Analytics’s privacy policy for additional information.


Cookies for Email Subscribers

In order to improve email subscribers’ experience and the overall quality of our services, we may use cookies to measure the effectiveness of our email communications and to better tailor email content. Specifically, we may connect the data showing that an email subscriber clicked a link in an email to a subsequent action taken by that individual on the 4CH Project website.

We would therefore only connect cookie data to individual users who have consented and opted in to receiving emails. 


Third-Party Cookies

Some pages on 4ch-project.eu may include web content or functionality from third parties, such as embedded videos hosted by non-4ch-project.eu services.  

These third parties may use web measurement and customization technologies (such as cookies) in conjunction with the provision of this content or functionality. 

You should consult the privacy policies of these third parties for further information. We do not knowingly use third-party tools that place a multi-session cookie prior to the user interacting with the tool, for example by playing an embedded video. If you become aware of a third-party tool on 4ch-project.eu that places a multi-session cookie prior to any user interaction, please contact us at contact@4ch-project.eu

Persistent Cookies

Many websites use “persistent cookie” technology. A persistent cookie is a small text file that this website places on your web browser so that it can gather anonymous summary demographic information, and remember your browser when it is used to visit our site again later—kind of like cookie crumbs! (Hence the name.) These cookies uniquely identify a browser on a computer, but never a person. In other words, if the same person uses Chrome and Internet Explorer, two unique browser cookies will be assigned, one for each browser, so that person well be counted as two different visitors because visits are based on browsers, not computers or persons. Most Internet browsers automatically accept persistent cookies. Although using persistent cookies creates a much better experience for you while using the site, most sites will also work without them. If you don’t want to accept cookies, you can edit your browser’s options to stop accepting persistent cookies or to prompt you before accepting a cookie from the websites you visit. Below you’ll find directions to help you disable cookies in some of the most popular desktop browsers and mobile browsers.

Important: If you choose to set your browser to reject cookies from every website you visit, this may adversely affect the functionality of websites you visit.
