inspHire and the Cookies
First Party Cookies (set by the website directly)
Google Analytics - inspHire use Google Analytics to help improve the user experience and identify areas of the website that need to be improved. Google Analytics collects information about user behaviour, how the different pages within the website are being accessed, bounce rates, duration on the website and what the user is clicking on. This data is not tied to personal identifable information, meaning that inspHire will not be able to store personal information or identify who you are through Analytics.
Third Party Cookies (set by external websites)
Third party cookies are set by external websites and are identified on inspHire’s website as the ‘sharing buttons.’ These sharing buttons allow the visitors on the website to share blog posts and case studies onto social media sites such as Twitter, LinkedIn and Facebook.
Please note, in order to implement ‘sharing buttons’ onto a website and connect these to the relevant external sites, there will be scripts from domains outside of inspHire’s website. This means that these sites could be collecting information about what websites you are accessing.
