Cloudera’s Recruitment Site Cookie Notice

Last updated: June 3, 2024

This Recruitment Site Cookie Notice (“Cookie Notice”) explains how Cloudera, Inc. (“Cloudera,” “we,” “us” or “our”), including its affiliates all over the world, utilizes cookies and similar technologies (collectively, “Cookies”) to support Cloudera’s recruitment activities, using our External Career Site hosted on the Workday Recruiting platform (“Platform”).  This Cookie Notice explains what Cookies are and why Cloudera utilizes them, as well as your rights to control their use.

What are Cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device (collectively, “device”) when you visit a website, mobile application, or other online or connected space (collectively, “digital property”).  The digital property owners can use Cookies for a variety of reasons, such as enabling their digital properties to operate effectively, providing personalized content and advertising, and generating analytics.  

There are different categories of Cookies:

  • Owner types

    • “First-party Cookies” are set by the digital property owner.  Only the digital property owner can access the first-party cookies.

    • “Third-party Cookies” are set by parties other than the digital property owner.  Third-party Cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the digital property (such as interactive content and social sharing).  The parties that set these Third-party Cookies can recognize the end user’s device both when it visits the digital property in question and when it visits other digital properties that have partnered with those parties.

  • Technical and Optional types

    • “Strictly Necessary Cookies” (or “Essential Cookies”) are required for technical reasons because they allow the digital property to function properly and enable the successful communication between you and the service.

    • “Non-essential Cookies” capture and generate analytics data and other performance indicators to provide the digital property owner information about the end user’s use of and activities on the digital property.

      • “Functional Cookies” are a form of Non-essential Cookie that enable certain optional features within or on a digital property to enhance the digital property and improve or personalize the end user’s experience.

  • Duration types

    • “Session-based Cookies” are temporary Cookies that exist only during a single session and disappear from the end user’s device when the user closes its browser or turns off the device.

    • “Persistent Cookies” remain on the end user’s device after it closes its browser or turns off its device and will remain for the specified duration.

What Cookies do we use on the Platform?

When you access the Platform, Cloudera uses several types of First-party and Third-party Cookies to enable you to use our site, collect statistics to optimize site functionality, provide the best possible experience, embed content to create a better viewing experience, and deliver content personalized to your interests.  We use both Session-based and Persistent Cookies.  We also use tracking pixels to measure the volume of applications that result from traffic forwarded from a select number of external third-party recruitment sites.

Strictly Necessary Cookies on the External Career Site

These Strictly Necessary Cookies provide you with the services available on the Platform.  Users cannot decline them.

  • Session management Cookies:  User, device, and session ID cookies along with timestamp cookies for timing out sessions after inactivity.  These cookies expire at the end of the session.

  • Routing Cookies To forward requests for a single session to the same server for consistency of service.  These cookies expire at the end of the session.

  • Application Security Management (ASM) Cookies:  To help protect web applications and infrastructure from security attacks.  These cookies expire at the end of the session.

Non-Essential Cookies on the External Career Site

The Non-essential Cookies enable certain optional features within the Platform.  Users can decline them.

  • Analytics Cookies:  To measure the source of external career site traffic using analytics cookies and tracking pixels (i.e., to gather External Career Site traffic metrics and to track the source of traffic to the External Career Site).
