Tar­get­ing Cookies

These cook­ies are linked to ser­vices pro­vid­ed by third par­ties. We use these cook­ies for social media shar­ing; pro­vid­ing adver­tis­ing agen­cies with infor­ma­tion on your vis­it so that they can show you adverts that you may be inter­est­ed in when you return to the web­site or vis­it oth­er third par­ty web­sites and deliv­er con­tent and mar­ket­ing com­mu­ni­ca­tion which are tai­lored to your inter­ests based on you your visit.

4. Third Par­ty Cookies

We use a selec­tion of third par­ty tools for per­for­mance mon­i­tor­ing, ad serv­ing and social media shar­ing. These links pro­vide more infor­ma­tion about how these tools use cook­ies: http://​www​.nielsen​.com/, http://​www​.google​.com/, https://​www​.face​book​.com/, https://​twit​ter​.com/, https://​www​.quant​cast​.com/​p​r​i​vacy/

Third par­ty cook­ies for adver­tis­ing. Many of our web­sites and mar­ket­ing emails car­ry adver­tis­ing. A cer­tain amount of this adver­tis­ing is tai­lored to the indi­vid­ual user, as prac­tice known as Online Behav­ioral Adver­tis­ing” which uses cook­ies to dis­cov­er gen­er­al infor­ma­tion about the pages you vis­it. This keeps many of our web­sites and ser­vices you use free of charge. The track­ing sys­tem is anonymised and there­fore it does not know who you are; it sim­ply uses the lim­it­ed infor­ma­tion avail­able to it to serve adverts to you, which it believes are rel­e­vant. It does not col­lect per­son­al infor­ma­tion such as your name, email address postal address or tele­phone number.

From time to time, Wast­ed Tal­ent may share this annonymised behav­iour­al data with our adver­tis­ing part­ners. This could mean that when you are on oth­er web­sites you are served adver­tis­ing based on your behav­iour across Wast­ed Tal­ent titles or you may be served adver­tis­ing based on your behav­iour on oth­er sites.

Behav­iour­al retar­get­ing is anoth­er form of Online Behav­iour­ial Adver­tis­ing that enables us and some of our adver­tis­ing part­ners to show you adverts based on brows­ing pat­terns and inter­ac­tions with the site away from our sites. This is allows com­pa­nies to adver­tise to web­site vis­i­tors who leave their web­site with­out mak­ing a purchase.

If you want to opt out of receiv­ing Online Behav­iour­ial Adver­tis­ing this does not mean that you will no longer receive adver­tis­ing when you are using our sites. It just means that the adver­tis­ing you see will not be cus­tomised for you. If you would like more infor­ma­tion about Onsite behav­iour­al tar­get­ing and how to opt out of it, please vis­it www​.youron​line​choic​es​.com or you can also vis­it http://​www​.net​workad​ver​tis​ing​.org/

Third par­ty cook­ies for tracking/​user analy­sis. Many of our web­sites also use cook­ies to track how many indi­vid­ual unique users we have and how often they vis­it Wast­ed Talent’s web­sites. We use 3rd par­ty com­pa­nies for this ser­vice such as Google Ana­lyt­ics pro­vid­ed by Google.

Oth­er third par­ty cook­ies. Some pages on our web­sites, oth­er com­pa­nies may also set their own anony­mous cook­ies. They do this to track the suc­cess of their appli­ca­tion, or to cus­tomise the appli­ca­tion for you. We can­not access these cook­ies, nor can the oth­er com­pa­ny access the data in cook­ies we use on our websites.

5. Wast­ed Tal­ent Mar­ket­ing Cookies

These are nor­mal­ly sup­plied by our approved part­ners or adverts deliv­ered from Wast­ed Talent’s own sys­tems and allow us to serve you adverts that you might be more inter­est­ed in. This track­ing sys­tem will log what adverts you see and will cap the num­ber of times you see an adver­tise­ment. The data col­lect­ed is anonymised and there­fore the cook­ies do not know who you are.
