Persistent Cookies remain in the cookie file of your browser for much longer (though how long will depend on the lifetime of the specific cookie).When we use session cookies to track the total number of visitors to our Site, this is done on an anonymous aggregate basis (as cookies do not in themselves carry any personal data). We may also employ cookies so that we remember your computer when it is used to return to the Site to help customize your Indeed web experience. We may associate personal information with a cookie file in those instances.

You can easily delete and manage any cookies that have been installed in the cookie folder of your browser by following the instructions provided by your particular browser manufacturer.

In addition, Indeed may also provide an employer with code for a Conversion Tracker to place on its Site that pings the job seeker web beacon and tracks whenever a job seeker has applied to a job on that employers website. This Conversion Tracker will attribute an application to Indeed any time the job seeker started their search on Indeed, despite any intervening activity. Indeed does not and cannot collect any of the job seekers personally identifiable information and does not have access to the cookies in the employers domain. The Conversion Tracker is simply a counter that notifies Indeed that a job seeker has applied. If a job seeker has disabled the web beacon, the Conversion Tracker will have no functionality. If you would like to remove yourself from Indeeds job seeker web beacon, you mustclick here.

2.2 Information Collected When You Apply for Jobs or Access Indeed from Some Third-Party Websites
When You Apply to Jobs on Some Third-Party Sites
Indeed may also collect information about web sites and web pages you visit through our mobile software or while using Indeed for Chrome, and this may include third-party sites and web pages. We only do this in order to allow a Job Seeker to keep a record of particular Job Listings of interest, to detect a job application form on a third-party website to give a Job Seeker the option to auto-fill parts of the form using Indeed Resume, or to confirm an application.
When You Log In or Use Indeed from Some Third-Party Sites
You may also create an account or log in to your Indeed account using third-party websites including, but not limited to, Facebook or Google. If you do not already have an Indeed account but log in to Indeed using your Facebook or Google account, this creates an Indeed account using the same email address used in your Facebook or Google account. If you agree to provide this information to Indeed, Facebook or Google will authenticate you and redirect you to Indeeds Site. Please note, when you log in to Indeed using your Facebook or Google account, Facebook or Google will cookie you in order to authenticate you as a Facebook or Google user.
By accessing Indeed through your Facebook or Google account, you understand that Facebook or Google will share certain data detailed above in this paragraph for the purposes of authentication to permit you to access our Site in a secure manner. You may stop this at any point from your Facebook or Google account. This information will be considered Indeed account information for purposes of your use of the Site.
You have the ability to disable the connection between your Facebook or Google account and your Indeed account at any time by accessing your privacy settings on your Facebook or Google account. Facebook may also ask for your permission to share certain other details with Indeed, including but not limited to your name, profile picture, public profile information, and email address. For those users that avail of Indeed Family specifically, Facebook may ask for permission to share your friends list, and Indeed may use some of this data to connect you with other users of Indeed Family.
PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH FACEBOOK OR GOOGLE OR ANY OTHER THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE IS GOVERNED SOLELY BY YOUR AGREEMENT WITH SUCH THIRD-PARTY WEBSITE.
2.3 Any Other Personal Data Indeed May Receive from Third Parties
Indeed will indicate to you at the point of provision as to whether or not particular Personal Data provided by you is required in order to provide particular Indeed services or features to you. Where Personal Data that is required is not provided by you then the particular feature or service may not be available to you.
2.6 The Legal Basis on Which Indeed Collects Your Personal Data
Indeed collects and processes your Personal Data on the basis of different legal grounds, depending on the nature of the Personal Data being provided and the type of processing involved. More information is provided on this here.
Most of the Personal Data processed by Indeed is performed on the basis that it is necessary for the performance of our agreement with you, or in order to take steps at the request of the user prior to entering such an agreement. An example of this would be where Indeed matches Job Seekers with Employers.
A second ground relied upon by Indeed for other types of processing of your Personal Data is that it is necessary for the purposes of legitimate interests pursued by Indeed. Such legitimate interests will include where Indeed sends you marketing about our products and services, where we believe you have a reasonable expectation that we will perform a particular type of processing on your behalf, or where such processing is strictly necessary for fraud detection and prevention. Indeed will only rely on such a ground where an assessment has been performed balancing the interests and rights involved and the necessity of the processing in order to provide our services, products and features to you.
Compliance with a Legal Obligation
A third ground relied upon for certain types of processing is that it is necessary in order to allow Indeed comply with a legal obligation. An example of this would be where Indeed is required to retain business records for fixed periods of time in order to comply with local legal requirements.
3.1 Where a Job Seeker Wants to Close an Account
When a Job Seeker closes an account, the Job Seeker will no longer have access to any of the data we make available under that account name, including but not limited to, search history, job search preferences, saved jobs, jobs the Job Seeker has applied to, job alerts, resume, and any other data associated with the account. If the Job Seeker uses the same email address to set up a new account, this data from a previous account will not become available to the Job Seeker again.Please also note that closing your Job Seeker account may result in you losing access to all Indeed products and the ability to utilize the Log in with Indeed feature found on certain third party sites.
Indeed reserves the right to keep any materials in a closed account as necessary to preserve and protect its rights to the extent permitted by law (for example, to preserve records of a dispute) or to comply with its obligations under local law (for example, if requested to retain by law enforcement). A closed account does not mean that all of the data is expunged from the Indeed systems, although it will not be readily available under the Job Seekers original account name. When the Job Seeker presses the close account button on the dashboard, Indeed will begin to process that instruction within 24 hours and will have completed the operation within 40 days.
3.2 Where an Employer Wants to Close an Employer Account
3.3 Where a Job Seeker Wants to Delete a Job Application
If a Job Seeker wants to delete a job application performed on Indeeds Site, they are advised to contact the prospective Employer directly to request deletion of their application. For job applications which you, the Job Seeker submit through Indeed (including the use of an Indeed Apply button) to an Employer, (with related materials submitted), please note: 1) that your applications and materials may be controlled by an Employer; 2) we may direct you to that Employer for Personal Data deletion requests where that Personal Data is held by that Employer; and 3) Indeed depends on the Employer or the Employers agent to provide Indeed with the correct destination for all applications.
3.4 Where the Employer Contact Details Provided to Indeed Are Incorrect
In the event that the electronic destination provided to Indeed is incorrect, your application materials will not be sent to the intended recipient of the application. Indeed has no liability for such applications. If you do not wish to send your application materials in this manner, you should send them directly to the Employer.

However, Indeeds relay system will show the name associated with your account or job application in the To: or From: field.
