What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser (for example, Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a ‘memory’ for the website, so that it can recognise you when you come back and respond appropriately.

How does Clarity Workforce Technology’s website use cookies?

A visit to a page on Clarity Workforce Technology’s website may generate the following types of cookie:

  • Site performance cookies
  • Anonymous analytics cookies
  • Geotargetting cookies
  • Registration cookies
  • Advertising cookies
  • Third party advertising cookies

Site performance cookies

This type of cookie remembers your preferences for tools found on Clarity Workforce Technology’s website, so you don’t have to re-set them each time you visit. Examples include:

  • Volume settings for our video player
  • Whether you see the latest or the oldest article comments first
  • Video streaming speeds that are compatible with your browser

Anonymous analytics cookies

Every time someone visits our website, software provided by another organisation generates an “anonymous analytics cookie”.

These cookies can tell us whether or not you have visited the site before.

Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies and, if you don’t, we generate new ones.

This allows us to track how many individual users we have, and how often they visit the site.

We use them to gather statistics, for example, the number of visits to a page.

Geotargetting cookies

These cookies are used by software which tries to work out what country you are in from the information supplied by your browser when you click on a web page. This cookie is completely anonymous, and we only use it to help target our content.

Advertising cookies

These cookies allow us to know whether or not you’ve seen an advert or a type of advert, and how long it is since you’ve seen it.

We also use cookies to help us use targeted advertising. We may use cookies set by another organisation so we can more accurately target advertising to you. These cookies are anonymous – they store information about what you are looking at on our site, but not about who you are.

We also set anonymous cookies on certain other sites that we advertise on. If you receive one of those cookies, we may then use it to identify you as having visited that site if you later visit Clarity Workforce Technology. We can then target our advertising based on this information.

Third party advertising cookies

Occasionally you may see advertisements on Clarity Workforce Technology that are provided by other organisations. Some of these organisations use their own anonymous cookies to track how many people have seen a particular ad, or to track how many people have seen it more than once.

The companies that generate these cookies will have their own privacy policies, and we have no access to read or write these cookies. These organizations may use their cookies to anonymously target advertising to you on other websites, based on your visit to Clarity Workforce Technology.

Other third party cookies

On some pages of our website, other organisations may also set their own anonymous cookies. They do this to track the success of their application, or to customise the application for you. Because of how cookies work, our website cannot access these cookies, nor can the other organisation access the data in cookies we use on our website.

How do I turn cookies off?

It is usually possible to stop your browser accepting cookies, or to stop it accepting cookies from a particular website.

All modern browsers allow you to change your cookie settings. You can usually find these settings in the Options or Preferences menu of your browser.
