This policy sets out how Research by Design uses and protects any information that you provide when using this website.
We use cookies to improve performance and enhance your user experience. This policy explains how we do that.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files which a website may put on your computer or mobile device when you first visit a site or page. The cookie will help the website, or another website, to recognise your device the next time you visit.
Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help us to remember your username and preferences, analyse how well our website is performing, or even allow us to recommend content we believe will be most relevant to you.
Certain cookies contain personal information – for example, if you click to “remember me” when logging in, a cookie will store your username. Most cookies won’t collect information that identifies you, and will instead collect more general information such as how users arrive at and use our websites, or a user’s general location.
How do we use cookies?
We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us to analyse our site’s performance and improve it to meet our customer’s needs.
This site uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. Google Analytics sets a number of cookies (default is 4) in order to evaluate your use of the site and compile reports for us on activity on the site.
You can choose to accept or decline cookies. By default, web browsers typically accept cookies, but you can modify this behaviour locally if you prefer. Please remember that if you do choose to disable cookies, you may find that certain sections of our website do not work as effectively.
We are committed to ensuring that the information we collect is secure. In order to prevent unauthorised access or disclosure,we have put in place suitable physical, electronic and managerial procedures to safeguard and secure the information we collect online.
Links to other websites
Our website may contain links to other external websites outside of Research by Design’s control. Once you have left our site, you should be aware that we do not have any control over these third party websites. Therefore, we cannot be held responsible for the protection and privacy of any information you may provide whilst visiting such sites. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.
