A cookie is a small file placed onto your device that enables xCHANGE features and functionality. For example, cookies enable us to identify your device, secure your access to XCHANGE and our sites generally, and even know if someone attempts to access your account from a different device. Cookies also enable you to easily share content on xCHANGE and help us serve relevant requirements/jobs to you.
Any browser loading xCHANGE sites will receive cookies from us. For xCHANGE members and users, we also place cookies in your browser when you visit non- xCHANGE sites that xCHANGE host our plugins (for example, xCHANGE’s "Share" button) unless you opt out. If you're not a XCHANGE member, we will not place cookies in your browser through our plugins.
We use two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. A persistent cookie helps us recognize you as an existing user, so it's easier to return to xCHANGE without signing in again. After you sign in, a persistent cookie stays in your browser and will be read by xCHANGE when you return to the site. Session cookies only last for as long as the session (usually the current visit to a web site or a browser session). Adobe Flash is another technology that can provide cookie-equivalent functionality. Adobe Flash is capable of storing information on your device (in a file outside of your browser). Please note that not all browsers provide the ability to remove Adobe Flash "cookies" (also called "locally stored objects," or "LSOs"). You can restrict or block Adobe Flash cookies/LSOs through the Adobe website. As with any cookie, if you do restrict flash cookies/LSOs, there may be some xCHANGE features you aren't able to use.
Cookies can be used to do lots of different things, like recognize you when you visit xCHANGE, remember your preferences, and give you a personalized experience that's in line with your settings. Cookies also make your interactions with xCHANGE more secure and faster. Additionally, cookies allow us to bring you requirements/jobs both on and off the xCHANGE site, and bring customized features to you through xCHANGE plugins such as our "Share" button.

Trusted partners like DoubleClick help us serve advertising on and off the xCHANGE site, and analytics companies like Google Analytics, Quantcast, Nielsen, and ComScore may also place cookies on your device. We also use ACT-ON to help us manage inquiries about our solutions.
Most browsers allow you to control cookies through their settings preferences. However, if you limit the ability of websites to set cookies, you may worsen you overall user experience, since it will no longer be personalized to you. It may also stop you from saving customized settings like login information.
