Last updated: 1 June 2020

This Cookie Statement explains how HireVue, Inc. and its group companies (collectively “HireVue”, “we”, “us”, and “ours”) use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our marketing website [www.hirevue.com and related sites] (“Marketing Website”) or our web application [.hirevue.com] (“Web Application”).

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. 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.
Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, HireVue) 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 interactive content or 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.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first-party and third-party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical or security reasons in order for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Third parties serve cookies through our Website for analytics and other product improvement purposes. This is described in more detail below.

The specific types of first and third-party cookies served through our Website and Web Application and the purposes they perform are described in the table below:
