Cookies

Like most websites, the Dyson careers website uses cookies. “Cookies” are small text files that websites save onto your computer via your web browser. They’ve been around since the mid-1990’s and are one of the most widely used technologies on the internet. Many essential website functions rely on cookies. For example, you can't shop online without them as they are used to remember what you add to your shopping basket. On this website, we use them to remember what jobs you’re interested in and what information you have uploaded to support your application. They also make it possible for you to receive information about jobs at Dyson that may be relevant and interesting to you.

The cookies that we use at Dyson don’t collect any personal information about you and they can’t harm your computer, tablet or mobile phone. They are there to allow our websites to work, and to help us understand what information is most useful to our careers website visitors.

Your acknowledgement

By using this website, you accept that Dyson may set cookies on your computer or mobile device.

If we change our cookies policy, any changes will be posted on this page without notification. Questions regarding this cookies policy should be directed to privacy@dyson.com.

1 How we use cookies

Many cookies on our careers website perform essential functions, for example when you log in they remember your account from page to page on our website.

Other cookies help us understand how our websites are used by visitors, so that we can improve what we do online. We use Web Analytics tools for this. No personal information about you is collected - in fact the Dyson people who work with our Web Analytics tools have no way of telling who you are. They look at things like how long web pages take to load, and what information visitors look at most. They also help identify any parts of our websites that aren't working as well as they should - so we can fix things and make our website better for our users.

2 Types of cookies used by Dyson

Cookies fall into two general categories: first party cookies (which we set) and third-party cookies (which are set by partners).

First-party cookies
These cookies are set by Dyson. For the most part, they enable essential functionality on our website. They also include Web Analytics cookies, which we use to understand how our websites are used by visitors so that we can improve them.

Third-party cookies
Third-party cookies are not set by Dyson, but by selected partners with whom we work. They don't collect or send any personal information about you.

Social media cookies
Some pages on our websites let you share our content through social media sites like LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Sometimes we may embed videos from sites such as YouTube. These sites set their own cookies, which we don't control. You might like to check their websites to find out more about their cookies policies.

3 Managing cookies

The most popular web browsers all allow you to manage cookies. You can choose to accept or reject all cookies, or just specific types of cookie.

What happens if you reject all cookies?
You'll still be able to use some parts of our websites but some useful sections won't work if you disable cookies. For example you will not be able to log in and access your Dyson careers account.

How to manage cookies in different web browsers
Most browsers will allow you to turn off cookies. If you want to know how to do this please look at the menu on your browser, at online help or look at the instructions on www.allaboutcookies.org. Please note that turning off cookies will restrict your use of our website.
