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 website. Cookies are widely used by website owners to make their websites 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 a NetApp 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 NetApp as the Site operator. These cookies are called “first party” cookies. Some Cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than NetApp. These cookies are called “third party” cookies. For example, a NetApp 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 emails, advertisements, or other content. Through Cookies, aggregate and other information not considered to be Personal Data (such as your operating system, browser version, and the URL you came from, including from emails 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 NetApp Site or who clicked on links or graphics included in email newsletters received from NetApp. It is also used as a tool to compile aggregated statistics about how NetApp Sites are used, to perform and 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 NetApp, NetApp 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 NetApp Sites and non-NetApp sites), your search activity, your responses to one of our advertisements or emails, the pages you visit, your general geographic location, or other information. These ads may appear on our Sites or on third party websites. The technology partners we work with to help us conduct interest-based advertising are mainly members of self-regulatory associations such as the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) and the Digital Advertising Alliance (DAA). For Sites directed at individuals located in the European Economic Area (EEA), 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 NetApp Sites or other websites or properties, based on your visits to, and activities on, NetApp Sites and other sites.
If you do not want to receive e-mails from us in the future, go to the NetApp subscription center to unsubscribe or to update your subscription preferences: www.netapp.com/us/forms/sp-update.aspx, or you may contact firstname.lastname@example.org. NetApp follows the country-specific requirements to implement the opt-out within the legally allowed time period.
It is important to know that NetApp was the first global company to comply with the European Union Cookie Directive. As Data Protection laws change around the world, NetApp changes our policies, procedures and processes to ensure compliance with all relevant laws, regulations and directives.
NetApp is committed to compliance with all applicable country-specific laws regardless of our corporate headquarters. We take the privacy of our employees, customers, prospects, suppliers, partners, and any other visitor to our Sites very seriously and ensure that we have put in place the necessary policies, procedures and processes to ensure we meet our legal obligations and protect the privacy of all data subjects. Where required by law, we require an explicit opt-in from you before placing any Cookies on your devices. If local law does not require an explicit opt-in, we do offer you the opportunity to opt-out. However, we will place Cookies on your devices as stated above until you choose to opt-out.
