We ♥ cookies. But this is something else. This page contains information on what ‘cookies’ are, the cookies used by OurPeople, how to switch cookies off in your browser and how to specifically disable third party advertising cookies. We hope that reading this doesn’t make you feel hungry.

What are cookies?

‘Cookies’ are small text files that are stored by the browser (e.g. Internet Explorer or Safari) on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store such things as user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a “memory” for the website, enabling it to recognise a user and respond appropriately.

Cookies allow websites to respond to you as an individual and let us tailor our website to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about you. We use cookies to help us to provide you with a better website.

Every time a user visits our website, web analytics software provided by a third party generates an anonymous analytics cookie. These cookies can tell us whether you have visited the site before. Your browser will tell us if you have these cookies, and if you don’t, we generate new ones. This allows us to track how many individual unique users we have, and how often they visit the site.

What kind of cookies do we use and why?

Our website uses persistent and session cookies:

  • Persistent cookie allows a website to recognise users when they return to a website and keep certain information on user preferences. These cookies stay on a computer until they are deleted by the user.
  • Session cookies allow a website to carry over information from one page to another so that a user does not have to re-enter information. These cookies deleted themselves at the end of the session or at a certain time.

Our website makes use of anonymous cookies for the purposes of:

  • Completion and support of site activity;
  • Site and system administration;
  • Research and development; and
  • Anonymous user analysis, user profiling, and decision-making.

An Internet Protocol (“IP”) address is associated with your computer’s connection to the internet. OurPeople may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with OurPeople’ server, to administer the Site and to maintain contact with you as you navigate through the Site. Your computer’s IP address also may be used to provide you with information based upon your navigation through the Site.

Aggregate information is used to measure the visitors’ interest in, and use of, various areas of the Site and the various programs that OurPeople administers. OurPeople will rely upon aggregate information, which is information that does not identify you, such as statistical and navigational information. With this aggregate information, OurPeople may undertake statistical and other summary analyses of the visitors’ behaviours and characteristics. Although OurPeople may share this aggregate information with third parties, none of this information will allow anyone to identify you, or to determine anything else personal about you.
