Cookie Use Notice

On a limited number of its web pages, WorkSource Seattle-King County employs "cookies" to provide better service to its customers. WorkSource does not use cookies to collect any personally identifying information from users or to track user activities beyond our web site. WorkSource does not maintain copies of cookies on our web site after you leave our web site. 

Cookies are small pieces of temporary data that are exchanged between a web site and a user's computer which enable a "session", or "dialog", to be established between the two machines. With the session established, WorkSource is able to tailor its responses (i.e., identify and provide you with the information you want) and help you traverse our web pages in the most efficient and effective manner possible. The session is often broken when WorkSource’s server does not receive further requests from your computer or you simply exit your browser. 

WorkSource Seattle-King County limits its use of cookies to "session cookies"… types of cookies that are temporarily stored in your computer's memory. Session cookies are normally deleted from a user's computer when the user logs off the computer or the user exits the browser. In the event a cookie is found on your workstation which was issued from the WorkSource Seattle-King County web site, you may remove it without adversely affecting your future visits to our web site. 


For security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, our website also employs software programs to monitor network traffic to identify unauthorized attempts to upload or change information, or otherwise cause damage.
