Information about our cookies
A cookie is a text-based data file that we will ask to save on your computer. The main purpose of cookies is to give the web browser access to different types of functions and services on the website by storing certain information with the cookie.
Different types of cookies
There are two different types of cookies that may be stored on your computer or smart phone – session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies only exist temporarily while you as a user navigates on our website. These temporary cookies allow you to use various functions and services as optimally as possible on our site. The cookie disappears when you close the browser. The Academic Work website uses mostly session cookies.
Persistent cookies are stored for a longer period of time to remember information, settings, preferences, or sign-in credentials that you have saved, to create a more convenient and user-friendly website. Some of our third-party cookies are stored longer than temporary cookies and have expiration dates that make them almost permanent.
You can read more about our different types of cookies in our Cookie Overview, referred to below, and in our Cookie Settings tool, found at the bottom of our website.
