What is a cookie?

Resume4Free's cookie policy

A cookie is a small text file that your device saves that can contain information such as your login status, the body of your cover letter, reference page references, and more. They are sent back to the website so it can read the information from them. Websites use this method so information can be remembered when browsing the pages of a website, even if you come back months later.

They may also contain a unique identifier such as that used by Google Analytics, for example. It tracks your path through our website to create reports to analyze our web traffic. We also display third-party advertising such as Google Adsense and others who also set cookies with a unique identifier to personalize the ads shown to you. Google has their policy for how they use this data which can be viewed here. For a more in-depth explanation here is a Wikipedia article about cookies.

What kinds of cookies are there?
There are first-party cookies that are set by our site. There are third-party cookies that are set by sites that are external to ours, like Google.

There are also cookies with short-term and long-term time frames; they are called session cookies and persistent cookies. When you close your browser, it deletes the session cookies. They are used to store information on a short-term basis to remember things such as if you are logged in. They are also used to hold the letters you are sending while you create them.

Persistent cookies generally contain information for the long-term and normally have expiration dates which could be set to years in the future. Third-party analysis and advertising providers use this type to keep track of you on the internet to deliver relevant ads to you based on your history and preferences. They also make sure you aren't shown the same ad too many times. Persistent cookies remain on your computer until you delete them or they expire.

What do we use cookies for?
We use cookies to remember information such as if you are logged in. In this case, disabling your cookies would not allow you to log in to our services.
