What types of Cookies do we use?
We use two types of Cookies on Glassdoor: "session cookies" and "persistent cookies." Session Cookies are temporary Cookies that remain on your device until you leave Glassdoor. A persistent Cookie remains on your device for much longer until you manually delete it (how long the Cookie remains will depend on the duration or "lifetime" of the specific Cookie and your browser settings).
What are Cookies used for?
Cookies may transmit information about you and your use of Glassdoor, such as your browser type, search preferences, job titles, data relating to advertisements that have been displayed to you or that you have clicked on, and the date and time of your use. Cookies may link to certain unique information such as the job titles that you entered at time of registration or on your profile, but this is not linked to your name.
Ad Choices and Managing Cookies
Glassdoor works with several third parties to provide you with personalised, interest-based advertising. We may target adverts to you on and off Glassdoor using:
- Cookies (both on and off Glassdoor) and IP address;
- Mobile device location information, to the extent you have enabled location tracking on your device;
- Member-provided profile information;
- Your use of Glassdoor (for example, your Glassdoor search history); and
- Information from third-parties (including advertising partners, publishers, and data aggregators) which we use to help deliver relevant adverts to you.
We work with third parties, such as Google Analytics, to provide analytics services that may use the Cookies set on your device to measure the performance of advertising and track traffic to Glassdoor generally. In addition, we have implemented Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting, which categorises cookie information so that we and third-party service providers can better deliver advertisements that are relevant and useful to you on Glassdoor and various websites across the internet. You may opt out of tracking by Google Analytics and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting services by visiting Google Ads Settings or by downloading the Google Analytics Opt-Out Browser Add-on.
You may be able to opt out of other third-party advertiser and ad network placement of Cookies or targeted advertising by visiting the following links: Network Advertising Initiative; Digital Advertising Alliance; European Interactive Digital Advertising Alliance (for users in the EU); The Digital Advertising Alliance of Canada (for users in Canada); or you can follow opt-out instructions of the individual advertising networks, analytics providers and other advertising third parties we work with listed here. You will continue to receive generic adverts by companies not listed with these opt-out tools.
You may also be able to disable placement of some (but not all) Cookies by setting your browser to decline cookies, though this may worsen your user experience. Additionally you can also control, manage and/or delete cookies via your browser settings. A useful resource for information about deleting and controlling cookies can be found at AboutCookies.org.
If you enable location data for the mobile version of Glassdoor (including any version installed as a native application), we may use your location data (after anonymising it) to serve you geo-targeted adverts and offers for businesses or employers that are local to you. In such instances, we do not share your location with the advertiser or advertising network; rather, we provide the advertiser or advertising network with a means to push adverts through to users located in certain areas or postal codes. You may disable location services at any time in your "settings."
Please note: if adverts or other features on Glassdoor are provided by third parties, those parties also may set and use their own Cookies that are subject to those third parties' privacy notices and policies.Glassdoor does not have access to, or control over, these Cookies.
