Top Employers Institute Cookie Policy

By using this Web Site, you are consenting to our use of cookies in accordance with this Cookie Policy. If you do not agree to our use of cookies in this way, you should set your browser settings accordingly or not use our Web Site. If you disable the cookies that we use, this may impact your user experience while on the Top Employers Web Site.

Cookies Explained

You should be aware that non-personal information and data may be automatically collected on the TOP EMPLOYERS INSTITUTE Web Site through the use of cookies. Cookies are small text files (no larger than 4k) stored as text on a computer hard drive. Websites can use cookies to recognize repeat visitors, facilitate the visitor's ongoing access to and use of the website, and allow a website to track usage behaviour and compile aggregate data that will allow content improvements.

Cookies are not programs that come onto a visitor's system and damage files. The use of cookies is common in the Internet industry, and many major websites use them to provide useful features to their customers. Generally, cookies work by assigning a unique number to the visitor that has no meaning outside the assigning website. If a visitor does not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows the visitor to deny or accept the cookie feature. TOP EMPLOYERS INSTITUTE uses cookie technology but only to obtain non-personal information from online visitors in order to improve their online experience and facilitate their visit within the Web Site.

Cookies we use

Generally, our cookies perform up to three/four different functions:

1. Essential cookies

Some cookies are essential for the operation of our Web Site. For example, some cookies allow us to identify certified Top Employers and ensure they can access the login pages of the Resource Center. 

2. Performance cookies

We utilise other cookies to analyse how our visitors use our Web Site and to monitor website performance. This allows us to provide a high quality experience by customising our offering and quickly identifying and fixing any issues that arise. For example, we might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. 

3. Functionality cookies

We use functionality cookies to allow us to remember your preferences. For example, to establish your location and provide the right language to you. We also use functionality cookies to provide you with enhanced services such as allowing you to watch a video online or comment on a blog.

4. Targeting cookies (should we include???)

These targeting cookies are used to collect anonymous information on how visitors use the Web Site.

TOP EMPLOYERS INSTITUTE does explicitly not use “tracking cookies”. A tracking cookie is a special cookie that tracks the online visitor and identifies the online visitor on one or more websites.

In summary, TOP EMPLOYERS INSTITUTE uses cookie technology, but only to obtain non-personal information from online visitors in order to improve their online experience and facilitate their visit within the Web Site.
