- Types of Cookies
Cookies may be either “persistent” cookies or “session” cookies. A persistent cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (unless deleted by the user before the expiry date). A session cookie, on the other hand, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.
Strictly Necessary: Cookies cannot be opted out as they are necessary for the proper function of the website, are required to comply with law or necessary for the security of our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms, for example by remembering information provided by you as you move through the site and managing your logged-in status during the session.
Performance Cookies: 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. These cookies may be provided by our third-party analytic tool (see below “Google Analytics”) provider but are only used for purposes related to our websites.
Functionality Cookies: These cookies allow the website to remember choices you have made in order to provide functionality for your benefit. For example, functional cookies allow the website to remember settings specific to you, such as your country selection, language preferences and persistent logged-in state if selected by you, and other customized features.
Targeting Cookies: These cookies remember information through your subsequent use of our websites regarding your use of our websites, especially your areas of interests, website content you visited, links you have clicked and information you asked for or services you subscribed to (i.e. when downloading a whitepaper or registering for a service), and other retargeting and behavioral advertising technologies so that we can personalize your online experience, and serve promotional and other information tailored to you specific to your interests on our and other websites.
If you have chosen to receive marketing emails or newsletters from Tech Data, we may use web beacons and personalized URLs embedded in these communications to understand whether you’ve opened those messages and whether you’ve clicked on links contained within those messages. This allows Tech Data to better tailor future communications to areas being of interest to you and avoiding sending emails you are not interested in.
Social Sharing Cookies: These cookies provide access to social networks and may collect personal information in relation to your use of these networks when you decide to share information using a social media sharing button on our websites. The social network will record that you have done this and may use this information to send you targeted advertisements. The types of cookies used by these companies and how they use the information is governed by their privacy policies.
