Our Cookie Policy

Last updated: November 08, 2018

A browser cookie is a piece of data that websites ask your browser to store on your machine. Each time you view a page on a website it's like the website never saw you before - it's all brand new to the website. Basically, websites have the memory of a goldfish. The website needs a way to remind itself that you've visited before, and that's what it uses cookies for.

It's important to note that cookies are site specific. A cookie set by one website cannot generally be accessed by another website. (Read about Same-origin policy on Wikipedia).

This policy describes how Job.am and other third parties use cookies.

General Browsing

Job.am stores a cookie when you first visit the site in order to create a "session". A session is akin to a visit: you come to the Site, browse some pages and leave. That's a session. The "session cookie" is stored only for the duration of your session and allows the Site to store state information such as the fact that you've logged in successfully (so you don't have to log in each page view) and whatever settings you've chosen.

Other cookies are stored for longer periods (over a year in some cases) and are used for customisation of the Site without you needing to be logged in.

Analytics

We use analytics services such as Google Analytics to understand how our services are being used, which in turn allows us to better tailor our Product and Service offerings to you. We do not share personally identifiable “raw” data with our clients or any third parties. We may, however, share aggregate, non-personal data such as total pageview or visitor counts.

What information is collected on Me via cookies?

Not a lot. The data we get from you is typically collected via a form submission. Remember that cookies are set by a website: they can only contain data that the website already has. Cookies can, however, allow data to be correlated: You visit our site one day, we set a cookie, and then you visit the site again the next day, and we read the cookies we stored in order for us to know that it's really you again.

But I don't like cookies. No cookies for me, please

Technology is here to help, but by blocking cookies you will be unable to log-in, you won't be able to customise the site settings.

To disable cookies please adjust the settings on your internet browser and choose from the available Cookies settings. For example, Chrome makes it super easy: Just go to Settings, click Advanced, choose Content Settings, select Cookies, and add a site to your Blocked list.
