Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them — or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if the browsing device has visited them before.

How to control and delete cookies through your browser?
The browser you are using to view the Site can enable, disable or delete cookies. To do this, follow the instructions provided by your browser (usually located within the “Help,” “Tools” or “Edit” facility). Please note that if you set your browser to disable cookies, you may not be able to access certain parts of the Site, for example, applying for a job or posting a job.

These cookies are essential, as they enable you to move around a website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas. Without these cookies, services you’ve asked for (such as internet banking) can’t be provided. These cookies don’t gather information about you that could be used for marketing or remembering where you’ve been on the internet.
This category can be disabled but to do so would prevent the site from working properly.
These cookies collect information about how you use a website, for example which pages you go to most often and if you get error messages from certain pages. These cookies don’t gather any information that identifies you. All information these cookies collect is anonymous and is only used to improve how a website works.
These cookies are not used to target you with online advertising. You can switch them off but without these cookies we can’t learn how our website is performing and make relevant improvements to enhance your browsing experience.
These cookies allow a website to remember choices you make (such as your user name, language or the region you’re in) and tailor the website to provide enhanced features and content for you.
For example, they can be used to remember certain log-in details, changes you’ve made to text size, font and other parts of pages that you can customise. They may also be used to provide services you’ve asked for such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. These cookies may be used to ensure that all our services and communications are relevant to you. The information these cookies collect cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
Without these cookies, a website cannot remember choices you’ve previously made or personalise your browsing experience meaning you would have to reset these for every visit.
These cookies gather information about your browsing habits. They remember that you’ve visited a particular website and share this information with other organisations such as advertisers. They do this in order to provide you with ads that are more relevant to you and your interests. Although these cookies can track your visits to other websites, they don’t usually know who you are.
Without these cookies enabled advertisements you see online will be less relevant to you and your interests.
