Cookies are small files—usually consisting of letters and numbers—placed on your computer, tablet, phone, or similar device, when you use that device to visit a web site. Cookies are widely used by web site owners to make their web sites operate, work more efficiently, and provide analytic information.
These are the different types of Cookies we and our service providers may use on our Sites:
Other Cookies operate from the time you visit an Intel service to the end of that particular web browsing session. These Cookies expire and are automatically deleted when you close your Internet browser. These Cookies are called “session” Cookies.
Some Cookies will stay on your device between browsing sessions—they do not expire when you close your browser. These Cookies are called “persistent” Cookies. The length of time a persistent Cookie stays on your device varies from Cookie to Cookie. We and others use persistent Cookies for a variety of purposes, such as to store your preferences so that they are available for the next visit, and to keep a more accurate account of how often you visit our Sites, how often you return, how your use of the Sites may vary over time, and the effectiveness of advertising efforts.
Cookies may be placed on your device by Intel as the Site operator. These Cookies are called “first party” Cookies. Some Cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than Intel. These Cookies are called “third party” Cookies. For example, an Intel partner may place a third party Cookie to enable online chat services.
Cookies may also be used that allow us and third parties to know when you visit our Sites, and to understand how you interact with e-mails, advertisements, or other content. Through Cookies, aggregate and other information not identifying individual users (such as your operating system, browser version, and the URL you came from, including from e-mails and advertisements) may be obtained and used to enhance your experience and understand traffic patterns. This technology counts the number of users who visit a particular service from specific banner advertisements outside the Intel Site or who clicked on links or graphics included in e-mail newsletters received from Intel. It is also used as a tool to compile aggregated statistics about how Intel Sites are used, to perform analytics and help us to optimize our Sites, and to help serve you advertising based on your interests, as described in further detail below.
We and third parties, including technology partners, and service providers engage in interest-based advertising to deliver advertisements and personalized content that we and other advertisers believe will be of interest to you. To the extent third party vendors are using Cookies to perform these services for Intel or others, Intel does not control the use of this technology or the resulting information, and is not responsible for any actions or policies of such third parties.
Ads may be delivered to you based on your online or mobile behavior (on Intel Sites and non-Intel sites), your search activity, your responses to one of our advertisements or e-mails, the pages you visit, your general geographic location, or other information. These ads may appear on our Sites or on third party web sites. The technology partners with whom we work to help us conduct interest-based advertising may be members of self-regulatory associations such as the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). For Sites directed at persons located in the European Union, we may work with technology partners who are members of the European Digital Advertising Alliance (eDAA). You may also see advertisements for third parties on Intel Sites or other web sites or properties, based on your visits to, and activities on, Intel Sites and other sites.
You can decide whether or not to accept Cookies. One way you can do this is through your Internet browser’s settings. Most Internet browsers allow some control of most Cookies through the browser settings (Please note that if you use your browser settings to block all Cookies you may not be able to access parts of our web site.). The following web sites provide information on how to adjust the Cookies settings on some popular browsers:
You can also use a browser plug-in such as Ghostery* from Ghostery, Inc. or the Tracking Protection List* from TRUSTe. (A browser plug-in is a piece of software which adds extra capabilities to your browser—for example, to play video or scan for viruses.). Adobe Flash Player* is software for viewing multimedia on a computer. Web sites that use Adobe Flash* may store flash cookies on user’s devices to remember settings, preferences, and usage similar to other types of Cookies. These flash Cookies may also be known as Flash Local Shared Objects (LSOs). Intel may use Flash LSOs to provide special content, such as video and animation playback. You can find a good summary of how to manage Flash LSOs at http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager03.html.
There is currently no industry agreed upon response to a Do Not Track signal. At this time, Intel Services and websites do not function differently based on a user’s Do Not Track signal. For more information on Do Not Track, see All About Do Not Track.
