What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer or device by the web sites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make web sites work and to provide information to the owner of the web site.

Why does People in Research use cookies?

When someone visits www.peopleinresearch.org we collect standard internet log information so that we can track visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things like how many people have visited a particular page or how long visitors spend in different parts of the site. This helps us to improve our web site and to plan our future work.

We also use cookies to make certain parts of the website work, for instance, in order to register, to submit an opportunity and to use some features, when we need to know who you are. You can delete existing cookies and block new ones from the People in Research site – there is more information on this below – but this will mean that parts of the site will not work for you.

How can I delete and block cookies?

Most modern web browsers give you some control over cookies. You can set your web browser to accept or reject all cookies or to accept or reject specific cookies. You may also be able to set your browser to alert you every time a cookie is offered.
