Our legitimate business interests include but are not limited to:
- ensuring we continue to improve our service and better understand our users and customers and how you use our website, our apps and our products and services;
- ensuring we can communicate with you and you can easily communicate with us and amend your preferences from time-to-time; and
- ensuring we develop and maintain strong relationships with our suppliers and partners.
Our marketing partners use your information because they believe they have legitimate business interests to do so as they think you would be interested in hearing from them about similar products and services to those we provide.

The employer, educational institutions, professors, and product development partners to which we may share your information also use your information on the basis that they have legitimate interests as they process your data to analyze and improve team cohesion, reduce errors, speed onboarding and other improvements, and for the development of new products and services.

What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that is stored by your browser or the hard drive of your computer or mobile device if you agree. The cookie allows it to remember information between web pages and browser sessions. Cookies can only store text, which is always anonymous and usually encrypted.
There are two different types of cookies: Session and Persistent. They are used for different things and contain different information.
Session cookies contain information that is used within your current browser session. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. Nothing is persisted on your machine or device beyond the time your spend on the site.
Persistent cookies are used to hold information that is used between visits. This data allows sites to recognise that your are a returning user and react accordingly. Persistent cookies have a lifetime value that is set by the website, which can vary between a few minutes and several years.
Cookies can have five purposes: strictly necessary (essential for browsing our website or our app), functionality (to remember the choices you’ve made), performance/analytics (to collecting information about how you use our website or our app), targeting/advertising (to collect information about how you browse our website or our app and make advertising more relevant to you); and social media (to share our website or app content on social media).
For more information on managing cookies, please go to www.allaboutcookies.org, or, if you’re a resident of the EU please visit www.youronlinechoices.eu which has further information about behavioural advertising and online privacy.
In addition to cookies, we use some other similar technologies as follows:
- Web Beacons: small graphic images included on our website or emails or those of third parties to provide analytics information ;
- Social widgets: buttons or icons provided by third party social media networks which may collect browsing data and will be received by the third party and are controlled by the third party;
- SDKs: these are mobile application third party software development kits used in our apps. They enable us to collect information about app activity and the device it runs on; and
- Local shared objects: these are sometimes called flash cookies and can be stored on your browser. They are used to maintain preferences and usage records.
Cookies we use
You can find more information about the types of cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:
|Type of Cookie||Purpose of Cookie|
|Google AdWords Conversion Tracking and Retargeting||These cookies are used for retargeting visitors on other websites with our advertising.|
|Google Analytics||These cookies are used to track visitor activity and collect data about how visitors use our website. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the website.|
Our websites and apps use the web analytics service Google Analytics that is provided by Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer which allow analyzing how you use the platform. The information generated by the cookie on your use of the platform will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. We have activated the so called “IP-anonymization” which means that your IP address will be truncated within the area of the European Union or the European Economic Area before being transferred to the United States. Only in exceptional cases the entire (ie. non-truncated) IP address will be transferred to a Google server in the US and truncated there. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the platform, compiling reports on platform activity and providing other services relating to platform and internet usage. Google does not provide us with data that we may link back particularly to you. Your truncated IP address that is transferred to Google will not be associated with any other data held by Google. You may refuse accepting cookies by selecting the relevant settings of your browser. However, please note that if you do so you may not be able to use the full functionality of the platform. You can also opt out from being tracked via Google Analytics with effect for the future by downloading and installing Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
Refusing or deleting cookies
If you access our Apps, you can enable a “do not track” feature so as to control interest-based advertising on an iOS or Android mobile device by selecting the ‘Limit Add Tracking’ option in the privacy section of your Settings on iOS or via advertising preferences on Android devices (e.g. in Google Settings). This will not prevent the display of advertisements but will mean that they will no longer be personalised to your interests.
