Analytics tracking We use analytics tracking software (Google Analytics) to collect data on how our websites are being used (for example, visits, number of new visitors, pages most visited, browsers and devices used). This data tracking is anonymous. Advertising On our websites that carry advertising we, like many other websites, use a third party advertisement server to host and serve adverts. Cookies are used to control where and how frequently an advert is displayed. Most of the advertisements appearing on our websites are generated by third parties. These may employ their own cookies to anonymously track the performance of an advert ñ we donít have access to this information. The organisations that supply these adverts have their own privacy policies. TARGETjobs works with Captify to collect Non-Personally Identifiably Information (N-PII) via anonymous “cookies” in order to show you advertising that is more relevant and interesting to you across the web.
