Cookie policy

  1. A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. The cookie allows the website to "remember" your actions or preferences over time.
  2. Most Internet browsers support cookies. However, users can set their browsers to decline certain types of cookies or specific cookies. Further, users can delete cookies at any time.

Why do we use cookies?

  1. We use cookies to learn how you interact with our content and to improve your experience when visiting our website. For example, some cookies remember your language or preferences so that you do not have to repeatedly make these choices when you visit our website. Additionally, cookies allow us to serve you specific content, such as videos on our website. We may employ the learnings of your behaviour on our website to serve you with targeted advertisements on third-party websites in an effort to “re-market” our products and services to you.

What types of cookies do we use?

  1. We use both first-party and third-party cookies on our website.
  1. First-party cookies are cookies issued from the eeaust.com.au domain that are generally used to identify language and location preferences or render basic site functionality.
  1. Third-party cookies belong to and are managed by other parties, such as Engineers Australia business partners or service providers. These cookies may be required to render certain forms, such as the submission of a job application, or to allow for some advertising outside of the Engineers Australia website.

How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

  1. Cookies and ad technology such as web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help us serve relevant advertising to you more effectively. They also help us collect aggregated audit data, research, and performance reporting for advertisers. Pixels enable us to understand and improve the delivery of ads to you, and know when certain ads have been shown to you. Since your web browser may request advertisements and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set their own cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their site.
  1. Although we do not use cookies to create a profile of your browsing behaviour on third-party sites, we do use aggregate data from third parties to show you relevant, interest-based advertising. We do not provide any personal information that we collect to advertisers. You can opt out of off-site and third-party-informed advertising by adjusting your cookie settings.
  1. Opting out will not remove advertising from the pages you visit, but, instead, opting out will result in the ads you see not being matched to your interests. This implies that the advertising you see will not be matched to your interests by those specific cookies.

How do I reject and delete cookies?

  1. You can change your preferences by changing your browser settings. Please note that most browsers automatically accept cookies. Therefore, if you do not wish cookies to be used, you may need to actively delete or block the cookies. If you reject the use of cookies, you will still be able to visit our websites but some of the functions may not work correctly.
  1. You may also visit your internet browser website for details on how to delete or reject cookies and for further information on cookies generally.
  1. By using our website without deleting or rejecting some or all cookies, you agree that we can place those cookies that you have not deleted or rejected on your device. Cookies used by us include:
