Our Use of Cookies and Other Analytics Technologies

We use “cookies”, clear gifs, log file information, and other technologies and analytics technologies (“Cookies”) to obtain certain information when your browser or mobile device accesses our websites, applications, or other technologies. For example, when you log in to our websites, applications, or other technologies to apply for an employment opportunity, a session cookie is created while you are on the website, application or technology. This enables you to apply for multiple positions without having to log back into the system each time. If you do not wish to receive any Cookies, you should examine your browser settings and instructions, though we make no promise that they will be effective. This may mean you will not be able to take full advantage of the services provided on our website, applications or technologies. 

Cookies allow us to understand what web pages you have viewed, what links you click, the searches you conduct on our websites, applications, and technologies, and how frequently specific pages are visited.

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies. You may choose to decline cookies if your browser permits, but doing so may affect your ability to access or use certain features of the website, applications or technologies, or our TrueBlue Services. Similarly, you may be able to adjust settings on your mobile device to limit the personal information it stores, and these adjustments may affect your ability to access or use certain features of the website, applications, and technologies, or our TrueBlue Services. 

Your selection of a “Do Not Track” option provided by your browser may not have any effect on the Cookies or the automatic collection of analytics information. This may be for a number of reasons. For example, not all Cookies can be controlled by browsers; unique aspects of your browser might be recognizable even if you disable a Cookie; not all settings will necessarily last or be effective; even if a setting is effective for one purpose data still may be collected for another; and even if one website observes a “Do Not Track” signal, that website usually will not be able to control other websites.
