How do you use cookies?

We save one “cookie” to your browser when you visit our site. This tracks your session; we need it so you don't have to log in on every single page. It is only ever used on our website and only contains a session number that our server uses to confirm your login. We are committed to using cookies fairly and in accordance with your privacy rights.

Can I change my password or information?

Yes. Just click on My Account. You can change your username to any unused name. This will not affect the experiments you've already done. The form allows you to change your password. You can also change your birthdate or sex if you entered them incorrectly when registering. Having accurate information about your age and sex are very important to our scientific research.

Can I retrieve my password if I forgot it?

Only if you are a researcher and your email address is stored with your account. We protect user anonymity, so we do not collect email or IP addresses. Therefore, there is no way to securely retrieve your account details. If you are participating in a long-term study, please contact the experimenter. Otherwise, you can just make a new account.

Where do you get your great icons?

We use the free version of Linearicons by Perxis, which is licensed under the CC BY-SA 4.0 license.

Do I need a particular browser to view your website?

We have worked hard to make sure that this website is accessible to all people using visual browsers (we are working on better support for audio-only browsers to access the parts of this website that do not require the viewing of images). If the website looks strange in your favourite browser, please e-mail us and let us know. If you are looking for a new web browser, FireFox is an excellent free browser for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux.

Why do I need JavaScript enabled to do experiments and demos?

We use JavaScript to perform some calculations needed to randomise trial order which prevents you having to load a new web page for every trial and greatly speeds up the experiments. It also allows us to collect more accurate data on how long the experiments take.

Can you host my experiment?

Sorry, we cannot host your experiments unless you are a member of the University of Glasgow School of Psychology. However, the code used to run this website is open source at GitHub.

What do we do with your data?

All of your responses are confidential and anonymous. Your data are stored on a secure server and this website will never ask for identifying data, such as your email address, in a way that can link it to your user data. If you have any concerns about the security or the use of your data, do not hesitate to contact us.
