Terms and Conditions


By using or accessing AcademicJobs’ websites (“Site”), you are consenting to AcademicJobs' use of Cookies as follows:

This Cookie policy helps to explain the occasions when and why cookies may be sent to visitors of the Site (referred to in this policy as "we", "us" or "our"). "Cookies" are text-only pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual's hard drive or other website-browsing equipment for record-keeping purposes, and allow the Site to remember important information that will make your use of the Site more convenient. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a randomly generated unique number or other value.

Session Cookies are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave the Site.

Persistent Cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie). When we use session cookies to track the total number of visitors to the Site, this is done on an anonymous aggregate basis (as cookies do not in themselves carry any personal data). We may also employ cookies so that we remember your computer when it is used to return to the Site to help customize your AcademicJobs web experience. We may associate personal information with a cookie file in those instances.
