Welcome to International IDEA’s site. For details of who we are, please see About Us.

On this page we explain what cookies may be set when you visit the site and how to reject or delete those cookies. 

By continuing to use this site you are agreeing to our use of cookies in the way described in this policy.

A cookie is a small data file that is placed on your device to allow a site to recognize you as a user when you return using the same device and web browser, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (a ‘persistent cookie’).  Other similar files work in the same way and we use the word ‘cookie’ in this policy to refer to all files that collect information in this way.

Cookies are an extremely common technology for remembering certain information about a visitor to a site.  The vast majority of sites currently make use of cookies and they are commonly used for a wide range of tasks.  We use cookies for the following purposes:

  • for site operation, for example to enable you to access your CV and update it or submit it to apply for a vacancy; 
  • to analyse use of the site by, for example, recognizing and counting the number of visitors and how they move around the site.This helps us to see what parts of the site are popular and which sections need improving to make the experience better for users; and
  • to record your visit to the site and the pages you have visited and the and links you have followed.We will use this to make the site more relevant to your interests.

When you accessed the site, you were presented with a message that notified you of our use of cookies.  We had to use a cookie to present you with that notice (you can see details of this cookie under ‘Cookie Banner’ in the table below).  If you continue to use the site, more cookies and other tracking technologies will be placed on your device as described in this Cookie Policy in order to enhance your user experience. 

We will not use cookies to collect personally identifiable information about you, but If you wish to restrict or block the cookies which are set by this site (or, indeed, on any other site) you can do this through your browser settings.  The ‘Help’ function within your browser should tell you how.  In respect of cookies that are set via this site, you can also disable these by following the instructions provided in the section titled ‘Opting Out’ in the tables below. 

Alternatively, you might wish to visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ which contains detailed information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers.  You will also find details on how to delete cookies from your computer, as well as more general information about cookies.  Please note that, as these sites are not owned or operated by us, we are not responsible for any of the content on them.

Some of the emails we send to you may contain a ‘web beacon pixel’ or tracked links which allows us to identify when you have opened the email and to verify which links contained in the email you have accessed.  We use this information to determine which parts of our emails are of most interest to you.

You can delete the pixel by deleting the email.  If you do not wish to download the pixel to your computer or other device, you can ensure this by selecting to receive emails from us in plain text rather than HTML.

Alternatively, you can unsubscribe from our mailing list by contacting us at info@idea.int.

Changes

We may make changes to this Cookie Policy at any time by sending you an e-mail with the changed provisions or by posting a revised copy of the Cookie Policy to the site.  Any changes will take effect immediately after the date of our email or the date on which we post the changed policy on the site, whichever is the earlier.  Your continued use of the site after that period expires means that you agree to be bound by the modified policy.
