What are cookies?
A cookie is a piece of information in the form of a very small text file that is placed on an internet user's computer. It is generated by a web page server (which is basically the computer that operates the web site) and can be used by that server whenever the user visits the site. A cookie can be thought of as an internet user's identification card, which tells a web site when the user has returned.
Cookies can't harm your computer and we don't store any personally identifiable information about you on any of our cookies.
reed.co.uk uses two types of cookies: cookies set by reed.co.uk and cookies set by third parties (i.e. other websites or services).
reed.co.uk cookies enable us to keep you signed in to your account throughout your visit and to tailor the information displayed on the site to your preferences, such as recommending jobs.
We also use third party cookies to help deliver relevant jobs, courses and advertising both on reed.co.uk and on other websites, to integrate content with social networks, such as Facebook and Google+, and to better understand how the features and functions of the site are used in order that we can improve our service.
