UK Jobs Guide considers Internet user privacy and data protection to be of paramount importance, we comply with the Data Protection Act 1998 in relation to all processing of personal data supplied to us by users and other personal data in our possession for any reason.
What is a Cookie?
Cookies are small text files which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to your browser from a web server and stored on you computer's hard drive by your browser. They're used for many things, such as remembering whether you've visited the site before, and to help us work out how many new website visitors we get each month. They contain information about the use of your computer but don't include personal information about you (they don't store your name, for instance).
You can read all about cookies here: www.allaboutcookies.org
Cookies do not damage your computer. Each web site can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a web site to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites.
You can decide if you want to accept cookies by changing the settings on your browser to either accept all cookies, reject all cookies, or notify you when a cookie is set.

UK Jobs Guide may also collect aggregate information on how our users are utilising the site. This might include information regarding traffic patterns through the site.
Other organisations that place advertising on our network also have the ability to assign a different cookie to your browser in a process that the UK Jobs Guide does not control. Again, unless you voluntarily advise them, these advertisers will also never know who you are.

- And Affiliate Networks, Some affiliate networks will cookie you so we can be credited with sales if you leave our site and then go on and buy goods and services.
- Our own ad serving and management cookies
We sell advertising space on UK Jobs Guide as we don't charge for content or to place a single job advert at a job centre location.
As part of our advertising solution, we use several services that from time to time may help us and advertisers understand what adverts you might be interested in. These cookies hold information about the computer - they don't hold personal information about you (ie it's not linked to you as an individual). But they might hold a record of what other websites you've looked at - so we may show you a car advert if you've previously visited a motoring website. Although we believe most adverts will be career and job focused.
These are the services we use and how you can control those cookies. Please note that turning off advertising cookies won't mean that you are not served any advertising merely that it will not be tailored to your interests.
SHARING OF DATA
UK Jobs Guide will not disclose any of your personal information to a third party without your consent, unless we believe, in good faith, that the law requires it or that the rights or property of the UK Jobs Guide need to be protected.
