Cookie policy: about cookies

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of information stored on your computer by the majority of websites online today.

This information most typically contains an identification number, unique to your computer; and while this does not identify you as a person (for example, we will store no personal information on you), it allows us to see what has interested you on our site on your previous visits. This enables us to personalise our site to show you the most relevant information next time you visit, which we think makes it easier for you to find what you're looking for.

Cookies also allow us to build anonymous statistics about which parts of our site are most and least popular, allowing us to improve our website; which is a good thing for everyone.


What kind of cookies does GPRS use?

As of the 1st of January 2012 we use three types of cookie:

  • Session Cookies - Session cookies are short-term cookies, essential for every-day use of the site. They allow us to link information you've provided on one page of our site with other pages, such as allowing you to browse back and forth between different jobs on a search you've just run.
  • Analytics Cookies - These are 3rd party cookies (cookies set by a 3rd party company) which aid in providing statistics about what you're most interested in, allowing us to personalise our site to best suit your needs.
  • Long-Term Cookies - Long-Term cookies contain information that is useful to keep for a longer period. This may include information such as where you last searched for jobs; enabling us to give you the option to search in the same place next time, rather than you having to enter this again every time you visit.

What if I don't want you to use cookies?

If for whatever reason you would prefer we not use cookies, then please visit AboutCookies.org for information and guidance on disabling and managing cookies from within your browser.
