 Ⅳ. Use of Cookies and Web Beacons

Cookies help websites identify registered users and count the number of visitors, so they are predominantly used by websites to determine whether a registered user has logged in.

People’s Daily Online promises that our use of cookies serves the sole purpose of upgrade of service and product quality, as well as optimization of user experience.

If you do not want your personal information to be stored in cookies, you can modify your browser settings: you can either choose “decline cookies” or “notify me when the website uses cookies”. Given that the services of People’s Daily Online can only be fully actualized by accepting cookies, if you choose to decline cookies, your access to our sites or some of our services may be affected.

Our approaches and purposes of using cookies apply equally to web beacons.

We make every reasonable effort to protect the personal information we obtain. We have established a special data security department to safeguard our users’ personal information.

1. With the adoption of encryption technology and isolation technology, personal information is stored, encrypted and isolated from outside networks.

2. In the use of personal information, such as display and correlation calculation of personal information, we adopt multiple data desensitization technologies including content replacement and encryption desensitization to ensure the security of personal information.

3. We have established strict systems for the use and access of data, with strict control over data access and multiple identity recognition technologies to protect our users’ personal information, and avoid any unauthorized use of their data.

5. We have established a special department for data security. The department, responsible for the emergency response of issues related to data security, is committed to promoting and safeguarding the security of our users’ personal information.

Various risks concerning information leakage have always existed in the network environment. In the case of any information leakage caused by unexpected situations or force majeure, we will try our best to control the situation and inform you of the relevant information including the cause of the incident, the security measures we have taken, and what security measures you can take to reduce any potential damage.

Please be advised that the personal information protection measures we provide only apply to the information gathered on our websites.
