In addition, if you would like to remove yourself from Indeed's job seeker web beacon, you must click here. Indeed may also provide an employer with code for a Conversion Tracker to place on its website that pings the job seeker web beacon and tracks whenever a job seeker has applied to a job on that employer’s website. Indeed does not and cannot collect any of the job seeker’s personally identifiable information and does not have access to the cookies in the employer’s domain. The Conversion Tracker is simply a counter that notifies Indeed that a job seeker has applied. If a jobseeker has disabled the web beacon, the Conversion Tracker will have no functionality.
