What are cookies?
Cookies used on the application
We use several different types of cookies. In particular, we use: necessary cookies which allow certain fundamental features of the Application to work; functionality cookies, which allow us to remember choices you make (e.g. your cookie preference); targeting cookies, which record the fact that you have accessed the Application and then which links you have followed whilst you use the Application and performance cookies, which monitors usage of the Application. We also use third party cookies - these are cookies that are set by a third party website rather than by us.
Some of these are session cookies which are temporary and allow us to link your actions during a single use of the Application. These are deleted at the end of your browsing session. Others are persistent cookies which remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. These cookies help us to identify you as a unique user (by storing a randomly generated number).
The following is a more detailed explanation of the types of cookies we use:
Necessary cookies are essential and help you navigate the Application. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, like the matching compatibility, cannot be provided. These help to support security and basic functionality and are necessary for the proper operation of the Application, so if you block these cookies we can't guarantee your use or the security during your visit.
Performance cookies help us to understand the behaviour of users of the Application. This allows us to continuously improve the Application to provide the best recruitment experience. These cookies are also used to help us understand how effective our Application is; for instance these cookies tell us which pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages from web pages. All of the information that these cookies collect is aggregated, to assist us to improve how the Application works. Some of these cookies are managed by third parties, and you may refer to the third parties' own website privacy notifications for further information. In particular, we use Google Analytics cookies to obtain an overall view of user habits and volumes, and to help improve the overall experience on the Application.
Accepting these cookies is a condition of using the Application, so if you prevent them we cannot guarantee how the Application will perform for you.
