Cookies are small text files sent by online services visited by Internet users directly to their devices. Cookies are also used by services which provide access to, e.g. multimedia.

Cookies are used to collect information on the ways websites are used, to make them more efficient, and to store user settings, such as language or font size.

Websites of the National Centre for Research and Development use cookies for the following purposes:

  • for statistical purposes,
  • to store certain settings related to how our websites are displayed,
  • to protect our websites against hot-linking,
  • on the subsites which are not available publicly (dashboard, expert log-in, etc.), to store log-in information,
  • to confirm survey completion.

Most of our cookies, except for some of those mentioned in 1, 2 and 5, are session cookies, meaning that they expire when you close your browser window. Some of the statistical information and display settings are stored from one session to another. Our surveys usually rely on token invitations, but they can also use cookies that are persisted between sessions.

Our websites use both internal statistics (integrated with website display), and those from third-party providers (currently Google Analytics).

You can change your cookie settings in your internet browser. If you do not change your settings, this will mean that you accept our cookie settings.

By changing your internet browser settings, you can also adjust your cookies protection level, and even block cookies completely. This will improve your safety and data protection, but might make certain functions, such as logging in to your e-mail account, unavailable.
