Tracking Technologies and Do-Not-Track Cookies
- A cookie is a commonly used automated data collection tool. Cookies are small text files that are stored by the browser on your computer or mobile phone. They allow websites to store things like user preferences. You can think of cookies as providing a “memory” for the website, so that it can recognize you when you come back and respond accordingly
- On the KORE Website, the Cookies generated by our site may be used to:
- Personalize the experience the website offers
- More readily tailor information to your needs
- We may use these cookies to bypass gated content forms
- Apply information gathered to personalize content on individual pages
- Gather information about how the site is being utilized to develop a better experience
- If you do not wish to receive cookies, the Help feature on most browsers will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, how to have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or how to disable cookies altogether.
- Additionally, you can disable or delete similar data used by browser add-ons, such as Flash cookies, by changing the add-on’s settings or visiting the Web site of its manufacturer
- If you wish to further prevent tracking of your online activity, you can set a preference in your browser that alerts websites you visit that you do not want them to collect certain information about you. This is referred to as a Do-Not-Track (DNT) signal.
- Please be aware that our websites may not recognize or take action in response to DNT signals from your web browser. At present time, there is no universally accepted standard for what a company should do when a DNT signal is detected. However, should a final standard be established, we will assess how to appropriately respond to these signals.
How We Disclose Your Data
