What Are Cookies?

Our website uses cookies, as almost all websites do, to help provide you with the best experience we can.

Cookies enable websites to ‘remember’ you, either for the duration of your visit (using a ‘session cookie’) or for repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They do this by storing a simple text file on your computer or mobile device, which is then returned to the site on later visits. Please note that cookies cannot harm your computer.

Cookies may be set by the website you are visiting (‘first party cookies’) or they may be set by other websites who run content on the page you are viewing (‘third party cookies’).

Our cookies help us:

  • Make our website work as you'd expect
  • Remember your settings during and between visits
  • Improve the speed/security of the site
  • Allow you to share pages with social networks

We do not use cookies to:

  • Collect any personally identifiable information (without your express permission)
  • Collect any sensitive information (without your express permission)
  • Pass data to advertising networks
  • Pass personally identifiable data to third parties

We only use cookies to track visits to our website and store no personal details whatsoever. This data is important to us as it allows us to see what pages people are looking at and how vistors arrived at our site. As a result, we strongly encourage you to configure your web browser to accept all cookies from arm.jobs - for more information on how to do this please see the section on Managing Cookies.

We're giving you this information as part of our initiative to comply with the EU Cookie Directive, and to make sure we're honest and clear about your privacy when using our website.

Our Cookie Policy and Usage

Like most websites, we use cookies to track site usage and trends, to improve the quality of our service and to customise your experience on the site. To make full use of the ARM Careers website, your computer, tablet or mobile phone will need to accept cookies, as we can only provide you with certain features of this website by using them.

Our cookies don't store sensitive information such as your name or address: they simply hold a 'key' that, once you're signed in, is associated with this information. However, if you'd prefer to restrict, block or delete cookies from arm.jobs, or any other website, you can use your browser to do this. Each browser is different, so check the 'Help' menu of your particular browser (or your mobile phone's handset manual) to learn how to change your cookie preferences. Check out our Managing Cookies section for PC/Mac instruction.

Here's a list of the main cookies we use, and what we use them for. You'll find information about 3rd party cookies underneath:
