7. How Meador Staffing Uses Cookies

A cookie is a piece of information either stored temporarily in your browser’s memory space (session cookie) or placed on your computer’s hard drive (stored cookie). Cookies allow a web application to respond to you as an individual, but without the need to identify you explicitly. Session cookies are destroyed when you terminate your browsing session by shutting down your browser. Stored cookies often have a predetermined expiration date after which they disappear from your hard drive. Cookies can be removed explicitly through functionality built into most web browsers. You may also set your web browser (e.g. Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator) to notify you of cookie placement requests, to ask for permission to accept them, or to decline cookies completely.

Cookie Usage

On occasions Meador Staffing may use cookies (which may be provided by a third party operating on our behalf) to help us analyze web traffic or to improve your web navigation experience. To facilitate the analysis, an ID is assigned to help us uniquely identify you each time you return to our web site. One of the major concerns about stored cookies is the fear that they contain personal information and information identifying you that could be accessed by other web sites. Meador Staffing only stores a randomly chosen unique ID number and a context, both of which are meaningless to others but help us to identify you.

By gathering and remembering information about your preferences, the web application can:

    Tailor its operation to your needs, likes and dislikes.
    Provide an automated log-in process as a convenience for previously registered customers. This insures that you will be accurately identified and linked with your registration data.
    Be placed on your computer to ensure you are not surveyed multiple times during your visit to the Meador Staffing’s web site. This cookie has a limited life span and will not personally identify you.

Cookies help us provide a better web experience by letting us monitor what’s working and what isn’t through site traffic analysis. Meador Staffing wants to be sure you understand that accepting a cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any personal information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. This practice is strictly enforced. While acknowledging the concerns that some visitors have about cookie usage, we believe that the benefit our webpage visitors gain from the use of cookies is worthwhile.
