Cookies and Web Analytics

When you visit our website, we may collect certain information by automated means, such as using cookies, web beacons and web server logs.  The information we may collect in this manner includes IP address, unique device identifier, browser characteristics, device characteristics, operating system, language preferences, referring URLs, information on actions taken on our website, dates and times of visits to our website and other usage statistics.

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites that you visit. They are widely used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

A web beacon is an often-transparent small graphic image that is placed on a website or in an email that is used to monitor the behaviour of the user visiting the website or sending the email. It is often used in combination with cookies.  We may obtain data (including but not limited to your browser information) through these automated collection methods as you click through various pages on our website.  You may be able to restrict or disable certain types of cookies; however, this may prevent full use of all the features on our website.  As required by law, we will obtain your consent before collecting personal data using cookies or similar automated means.

We may also use third-party apps, tools, plug-ins and widgets on our website and these may use automated means to collect information relating to how you interact with these features.  Such information collected is subject to the privacy policies of those providers and with applicable law. Candidate Source is not responsible for the practices of these providers.

Candidate Source uses an automated posting tool which enables us to advertise vacancies on multiple job boards simultaneously.  When making an application to one of the vacancies posted on behalf of our clients, your application/CV will be automatically sent directly to the client advertising the vacancy.  Your application/CV will also be automatically logged on our posting tool software.
