What are Cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device (computer, tablet, or mobile device) when you visit a website. They are widely used to make websites work more efficiently, enhance user experience, and provide website owners with anonymous tracking and analytics data.
Types of Cookies We Use:
We use the following types of cookies on our website:
Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential for the operation of our website and enable you to navigate and use its features. They are usually set in response to your actions, such as accessing secure areas of the website or filling out forms. Without these cookies, certain services or functionalities may be unavailable. PeopleLink also uses these Cookies to record a user’s settings, such as language, currency, timezone, browser, device (such as camera) and multimedia player settings, that are strictly necessary to enable our Websites to operate properly.
Analytics Cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use our website, such as the number of visitors, the pages they visit, mouse clicks and the sources from which they come. We use this information to improve our website and understand user preferences. These cookies collect aggregate and anonymous information and do not identify individual users.
Preference Cookies: These cookies allow our website to remember choices you make and provide enhanced, personalized features. For example, they may remember your language preferences or the region you are in. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you make to text size, fonts, and other customizable aspects of our website.
Marketing and Advertising Cookies: These cookies are used to deliver advertisements that are relevant to you and your interests. They may be used to track the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns or to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission.
PeopleLink and PeopleLink’s advertising partners may set Cookies on PeopleLink’s Websites that collect data about how you interact with PeopleLink’s Website so that they can provide advertising for PeopleLink on other websites and apps. PeopleLink’s advertising partners also may set Cookies to show you third-party advertising (including personalized advertising) on PeopleLink’s products. Depending on your jurisdiction, the default setting for cookies differs. We ask you for your prior consent or enable you to opt out of having your information shared with third-party advertisers or from receiving personalized advertising from our third-party partners.
Social Media Cookies:
Some of our Websites include Cookies provided by social media companies so that you can easily share PeopleLink content on social media, if you are logged into your social media account. Social media companies will not be able to determine whether you are already logged into a given social media account if you turn off Targeting Cookies, so you may not be able to share PeopleLink content on your social media account.
We may also use third-party cookies provided by trusted partners for analytics, advertising, or other purposes. These cookies are subject to the respective third parties’ privacy policies and are not under our control. We recommend reviewing their privacy policies to understand how they collect and process your information.
Cookie Settings and Opt-Out:
You can also opt-out of certain third-party cookies or advertising networks by visiting the opt-out pages provided by industry associations such as the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) or the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). Please note that opting out does not mean you will no longer see advertisements; it means the ads may be less relevant to your interests.
Do Not Track
Some web browsers have a “Do Not Track” feature. This feature lets you tell websites you visit that you do not want to have your online activity tracked. These features are not yet uniform across browsers. Our Websites may not currently respond to those signals.
