Website Cookies

A cookie is a small piece of information (in the form of a text file) which is sent from our website server and stored on your computer. We use them for a number reasons, such as recording how long users spend on each page, or tailoring Gradcracker according to whether it’s your first visit or you’re a regular user. If you’re unhappy with our use of cookies you can disable them in your settings, but disabling certain cookies may affect some of the website’s features.

We also use Google Analytics to analyse our website traffic. Some of these results are made available to our employers, so they can see how well their job postings are performing for example. If you would prefer to opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites, then please click here.

Again, no personal information is collected or used by any of these cookies, and we only gather these statistics to look at how we can improve Gradcracker for your benefit.
