What Are Cookies?
This page describes what information hireserve.com cookies gather, how we use it and why we sometimes need to store these cookies. We will also share how you can prevent these cookies from being stored (although please be aware that this may downgrade or ‘break’ certain elements of the site’s functionality, such as our Live Chat capability).
Most of the cookies we set are used for that first point: understanding our web visitors’ behaviour. We currently use two technologies on hireserve.com – Google Analytics and Crazy Egg. Both tools set third-party cookies which provide information about the following:
- How many users visit hireserve.com
- How long users spend on hireserve.com
- How users interact with site content (e.g. most popular links, how far users scroll down a page, etc.)
This information is used by our Marketing team to help us understand how visitors are engaging with hireserve.com and how we can subsequently provide a better, more relevant experience and user journey for them.
The remaining cookies are used for our Live Chat functionality and social media sharing. You can see all the cookies we use on Hireserve.com in the ‘What cookies do we use?’ section in a simple table.
