Cookies

The law on cookies demands that you, as a website user, are given the opportunity to understand how cookies are used on our website and consent to cookies being stored on your computer (laptop/mobile/tablet). We are giving you this information as part of our open policy, and to make sure we’re honest and clear about your privacy when using our website.

 

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded to your computer when you access websites. Typically, they contain the following information: a site name and unique user ID, the duration of the cookie's abilities and effects, and a random number. As a rule, cookies cannot be used to reveal your identity or personally identifying information.

When you visit a website that uses cookies for the first time, a cookie is downloaded onto your computer. The next time you visit that website, your computer checks to see if it has a cookie that is relevant and sends the information contained in that cookie back to the website. The website then notes that you have been there before, and in some cases, tailors what pops up on screen to take account of that fact. They also might record how long you spend on each page on a site, what links you click, even your preferences for page layouts and colour schemes.

Generally, the role of cookies is beneficial, making your interaction with frequently-visited sites smoother with no extra effort on your part. Without cookies, online shopping would be much harder. Without cookies, some websites will become less interactive with the cookie option turned off. At Globe UK Recruitment some of the ways we use cookies are to keep track of whether you are logged in or out of the site and to make sure you see the mobile site if you are browsing on your phone. We use cookies on our website to enhance your experience. By continuing to use our website you are agreeing to our use of cookies. Cookies can’t harm your computer in any way. We only use encrypted information gathered from them to help improve your experience of the site.
