Cookies

Cookies are small files that a site or its service provider transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser (if you allow) that enables the sites or service providers systems to recognize your browser and capture and remember certain information. We use cookies to compile aggregate data about site traffic and site interaction so that we can offer better site experiences and tools in the future. The way this benefits users is that it can remember actions they took (such as dismissing a popup form), so that the same form will not be displayed again until the cookie has expired.

Cookie Example – An example of how a cookie works could be with an email opt-in form. Suppose an opt-in form pops up, and you dismiss that form. What happens is that a cookie is placed within your browser that indicates the day and time that the form was dismissed. It might also specify the cookie expiration. While the cookie is not expired, the popup form will not show as that visitor visits our site. Once the expiration date has passed, the form will launch again.

We may contract with third-party service providers to assist us in better understanding our site visitors. These service providers are not permitted to use the information collected on our behalf except to help us conduct and improve our business.

Some of the cookies that might be placed on your site include:

  • OptinMonster – We use OptinMonster for our newsletter opt-in forms. If you dismiss a form or submit your email address, this will be remembered until the cookie expires.
  • Talroo – Talroo is where we pull in many of our jobs from.
  • Google – We use Google Analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behavior patterns. This helps us determine the most visited pages on our site, the sites that drive us the most traffic, and other statistics that help us improve our site’s content. We use this information to find out things such as pages that have the most visits, the amount of traffic coming from referrals vs. search engines, and more. This information is processed in such a way that nobody is identifiable. We do not make, and do not allow Google to make, any attempt to identify those visiting our site. You can read more about Google’s data protection compliance here.

The purpose of processing log information and details of visitor behavior patterns is to personalize your experience (your information helps us to better respond to your individual needs); to improve our website (we continually strive to improve our website offerings based on the information and feedback we receive from you); to improve customer service (your information helps us to more effectively respond to your customer service requests and support needs).

Legal basis for processing log information and details of visitor behavior patterns is your consent to cookie usage.

The storage period for processing log information and details of visitor behavior patterns is 38 months after the last time you visit our site.

Mailing lists

The purpose of processing email-addresses is to offer you various alerts that may be useful for you.

Legal basis for processing your email-addresses and statistics is your consent to receive emails.
