Cookie Policy

This Cookie Notice explains how Starget (part of Hirer Ltd) (“Starget“, “we“, “us“, “our“) use cookies and similar technologies to recognise you when you visit our websites at (“Website“). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

1. What are cookies?

1.1 We collect information automatically through the use of “cookies”. A cookie consists of a text file which is sent by a web server to a web browser, and stored by the browser as a tag that distinguishes your computer but does not name you. The cookie is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server, which enables the web server to identify and track the web browser.

1.2 Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, RStarget) 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 advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognise your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

2. Why do we use cookies?

2.1 We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons in order for our Websites to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” or “strictly necessary” cookies. Other cookies also enable us to track and target the interests of our users to enhance the experience on our Websites. Third parties serve cookies through our Websites for advertising, analytics and other purposes. This is described in more detail below.

2.2 The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites and the purposes they perform are described in the table below:

3. What cookies do we use?

3.1 We may use both “session” cookies and “persistent” cookies on the Website. We will use the session cookies to keep track of you whilst you navigate the Website. We will use the persistent cookies to enable our Website to recognise you when you visit.

3.2 Session cookies will be deleted from your computer when you close your browser. Persistent cookies will remain stored on your computer until deleted, or until they reach a specified expiry date.

3.2 Specifically, we use the following types of cookies on our Website:

Click here for details On some pages of the Website, third parties that provide applications through the Website may set their own cookies in order to track the success of their applications or customize applications for you. For example, when you share a page using a social media sharing button on the Website (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus), the social network that has created the button will record that you have done this. These cookies may also be used for advertising purposes too.

4. What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

4.1 Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Websites to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies, to understand whether you have come to our Websites from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.

4.2 Our Websites may also use so-called “Flash Cookies” (also known as Local Shared Objects or “LSOs”) to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations.

4.3 If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to “information” on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time).

4.4 Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.

4.5 Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these.

5. How can I control cookies?

5.1 You have the right to decide whether to accept or reject cookies. You can exercise your cookie preferences by clicking on the appropriate opt-out links provided in the cookie table above.

5.2 You can set or amend your web browser controls to accept or refuse cookies. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website though your access to some functionality and areas of our website may be restricted. As the means by which you can refuse cookies through your web browser controls vary from browser-to-browser, you should visit your browser’s help menu for more information.
