Checkr Cookie Policy

Effective Date: May 12, 2020

Like many online services, Checkr, Inc. (“Checkr” or “we” or “our”) use cookies and other tools to collect and analyze information regarding usage of our website (“Website” or “Site”) and our products and services (the “Services“). A cookie is a file containing an identifier (a string of letters and numbers) that is sent by a web server to a web browser and is stored by the browser. The identifier is then sent back to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. For details about how cookies works, see online cookies information

How We Use Cookies

Checkr may use both session cookies and persistent cookies when you access and use our Sites and Services. Cookies are used to remember your user account information and your preferences, to customize Sites and Services for you and to assist us in measuring and analyzing utilization of the Services. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to our Sites and Services. Persistent cookies can be removed.

We also use “analytical” cookies, such as Google Analytics, to provide analytics services for Sites and Services to us. 

We, our third-party service providers, advertisers or our partners may also use "web beacons" or clear gifs, tags and scripts, or similar technologies, which are small pieces of code placed on a web page, to analyze, collect and aggregate data about your use of our Services or Site. For example, web beacons may be used to count the users who visit a web page or to deliver a cookie to the browser of a visitor viewing that page.

Types of Cookies We Use

  • Functional: These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site will not then work. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
  • Performance: These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our Site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
  • Targeting: These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. They do not directly store personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

How to Control Cookies

At this time, Site and Services do not currently respond to “do not track” browser headers. You can take steps to limit tracking by erasing cookies from your computer’s hard drive and by setting your browser to block all cookies or warn you before a cookie is stored. If you delete or disable cookies, you may be prevented from taking full advantage of the Sites and Services because they may not function properly without cookies. For example, to prevent Google Analytics from using your information for analytics, you may install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on by clicking here.
