The startpeople.eu website of Start People uses cookies. Cookies are small information files that a website installs on the hardware (e.g. a computer or smartphone) of you as the user. The term ‘cookies’ as used in this statement also includes ‘local storage’ and similar technologies.

 

Below you will find further information on the cookies that we use.

If and to the extent that cookies also process personal data, such personal data will be governed by the effect of the privacy provisions applicable to the use of the website and our services. For the protection of the personal data please refer to the Privacy Statement.

 

Types of Cookies

 

A. Functional Cookies

These are cookies that are necessary for the proper performance of the website and for us to provide a requested service. These cookies are used to save certain user and preference settings, as well as login details, and to simplify and optimize the use of the website. In addition, these cookies are used to trace abuse of the website.

 

An example is ‘local storage’. The website uses local storage in the browser to save data temporarily. This expedites the display of pages, provides information as to whether a user is logged in, and facilitates the display of the same page to the user when logging in again after expiry of the user session. This information may include the user’s name.

 

B. Analytical Cookies

These cookies are used to collect information about the use of the website. In this respect we use, inter alia, the Google Analytics software. This software measures the number of users that visit the website, the time of visits to the website and web pages, the region from which the internet user visits the website, the website from which the user linked onto the website, the pages that are viewed (and the duration and frequency of those views) and in what order, and/or whether any error reports have occurred. The data collected are used for purposes of improvement of our service and optimum personalization of the content of the website to the users’ wishes and needs.

 

An example are ‘Affiliate cookies’. These cookies are used to track which advertisement leads to the purchase of a certain product or service, so that the party displaying the advertisement (the affiliate) can, for example, be remunerated by the advertiser.

 

Another example are ‘A/B testing cookies’. These cookies are used, for example, to trace which version of the website is most attractive to the users.

 

Google Analytics: The settings of the Google Analytics cookies are privacy-friendly. A processor’s agreement has been entered into with Google, the last octet of the IP address has been masked, “share data” has been disabled, and no other Google services are used in combination with the Google Analytics cookies.

 

C. Tracking cookies

Tracking cookies are cookies that collect data about the (internet) behaviour of the users of the website (profiling). These tracking cookies are used for the purpose of optimization of the user’s experience of our website. For example, these cookies are used to record information about the visit, so that relevant information can be used if the user returns to the website, for example, by filling in forms or offering advertisements or job openings in advance that match the user’s (search) profile.

 

An example are ‘Social media cookies’.  Information on the website may be shared on social media using the social media buttons on the website. These buttons are operated on the basis of social media cookies that have been installed by the social media third parties (including Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn). By clicking a social media button, you will be linked onto the website of the relevant social media third party. For the use of the cookies of the social media parties, please refer to the relevant information on the websites of such social media parties. This information may be changed on a regular basis beyond our control.

 

An example are ‘Social plug-in tracking cookies’. These are cookies that are created by the mere presence of one or more social media buttons on the website, even if the option to link onto the website of the relevant third party is not actually used.
