How we use cookies

A cookie is a small file which will ask for your permission before it is placed on your computer’s hard drive. If you agree and accept, the file will be added to your system to analyse web traffic and inform you when you visit particular sites. Cookies allow a website to respond to you as an individual, personalising your browsing experience. Using cookies, a website can act according to your personal needs and note your preferences and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences and browsing history.

The Research Features website uses traffic logging cookies to identify which of our pages are used. With this information, we can analyse data concerning web page traffic and reader habits to improve our website and tailor it to suit the needs of our visitors. This information is only used for statistical analyses and then will be removed from our system, in accordance with relevant data protection laws.

Overall, our cookies are designed to help us provide you with a better and more functional website, by helping us monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us any access to your computer, and it does not reveal any details or identifiable information about you, other than any data that you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies from any website. Most web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies, but you can modify the browser settings to decline cookies or always ask for your permission, if you prefer. However, declining to accept cookies may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website and negatively affect the browsing experience.
