What are Cookies?
Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Cookies are widely used by website owners in order to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information. For examples, cookies allow us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on our Websites, pages visited, registrations, submissions, information requests, language preferences and other traffic data.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, SkillsJump) are called “first-party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner 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 recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.
We use first-party and third-party cookies and other tracking technologies for the following purposes:
· Recognize your device;
· Facilitate navigation on our Websites;
· Display information more effectively;
· Personalize your experience;
· Assist in registration to our events, login and your ability to provide feedback;
· Analyze your use of our Websites;
· Assist with our promotional and marketing efforts, including behavioral advertising; and
· Assist with our information security efforts related to the Websites.
More specifically, we use the following types of cookies:
· Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are necessary for the Websites to function and cannot be switched off in our systems.

They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant adverts on other sites. They do not store directly personal information but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
