Cookies on our Website

 
What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or to work more efficiently, and our site relies on cookies to optimise user experience and for features and services to function properly. 

Cookies set by us are called "first party cookies". Cookies set by parties other than us are called "third party cookies". Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Website (e.g. like advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer when it visits our website and also when it visits certain other websites. Most web browsers allow some control to restrict or block cookies through the browser settings, however if you disable cookies you may find this affects your ability to use certain parts of our website or services. 

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to provide easier navigation around the sites and gather anonymous analytics information. In some cases, cookies are used to provide functionality within sessions, such as within the My Sterling Careers portal (when this becomes available).

 

Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites. 

We use Google Analytics (a third party cookie) within our websites to monitor how visitors move around the website and how they reached it. This is done so that we can see statistics on the types of content users access. The Google cookies also tell us if you have visited the site before and allow us to track how many individual users the websites have. The Google cookies cannot be used to identify individuals – they are only used for statistical purposes only. 

We use Facebook analytics within our website to track how visitors to our website move around. This data is used to target you on Facebook and Instagram ONLY. This data is not visible to Sterling Careers.  From time to time we may have links to other services such as social media or video services on our Website. These third party services may drop cookies on your computer when you use them. Due to the nature of how cookies work, we cannot access these cookies nor control their use. Likewise, these third party services cannot access our session or analytics cookies.

How can you control cookies?

You have the right to choose whether or not to accept cookies and to set your own cookie preferences on your computer.

These preferences can be to accept all cookies, to notify you when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at all. However, by opting not to receive cookies at any time, certain features of the Sterling Careers website cannot be provided and you may not be able to enjoy the website to its fullest. All web browsers are different and to learn how to change your cookie preferences, check the "Help" menu of your browser.
