Zoek uses browser cookies; this means our webservers put small files (the ‘cookies’) onto your computer to collect information as you use the website. What the cookies contain varies depending on the features they are being used for. Cookies enable Zoek to monitor traffic, remember users and their preferences and to provide features to users across multiple web servers.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of information sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to as a “device”) browser from a website and stored on your device. Further general information on cookies can be found at aboutcookies.org.
How are they used?
Cookies enable us and our partner organisations to identify your device when you access our website. The information they contain can then be used to: Personalise the website by storing the preferences a user selects for the site; Store information as part of the function of the website, such as jobs cart contents; Restrict access to registered user’s data and limit access to “paid for” services; Collect aggregated statistical information about the use of the website.
What information do they contain?
There is no personally identifiable information held in our cookies or the cookies used by our partner organisations. Cookies often contain a unique identifier, for example: 413EA8A33A38AC8CCE09CC624E8B4758, and may contain data you have supplied, such as user preferences and jobs cart contents. In some cases they can contain information about what you have done on our website, for example whether you have pressed a particular button or viewed a particular page. There are a few instances where we need to record more detailed information in the cookie, for example the cookie we use to indicate that you are logged into our website. In this case we store your unique identifier and time that you logged in. In such cases the contents of the cookie are encrypted, meaning that only our website can read that information.
How do I control which cookies I accept?
You have the opportunity to set your device’s browser to accept all cookies, to ask you when the websites sends a cookie, or not to receive cookies at any time. Not allowing cookies means that certain features of our website will not work and accordingly you might not be able to take full advantage of all of our services.
