This and all our Scandit websites (including customer dashboard websites) use cookies to distinguish you from other users of our websites. This helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our websites and to help you personalize your online experience.


When you use our websites for the first time we give you the opportunity to accept or decline cookies. By clicking ‘I agree’, you are agreeing to our use of cookies as set out in this policy.

What is a cookie?

 

A cookie is a piece of data sent to your device from a website which is stored on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. This means the website can recognise your device if you return to the same website. For example, if you register with on our websites or download one of our applications, a cookie helps us to recall your information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as your email address. When you return to our websites, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the features that you customized.

 

Cookies are not used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Some cookies expire at the end of your website session; others remain on your computer for longer.

We use Google Analytics. The information generated by the Google Analytics cookie (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the websites, compiling reports on activity and providing other services relating to activity and internet usage.

We may also use other technologies with similar functionality to cookies, such as web beacons and tracking URLs, including in emails to determine whether a recipient opened the email or accessed a certain link.

How to control or delete cookies

 

You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. You can also set your browser to alert you when a website sets or accesses cookies. The ‘Help’ function within your browser should tell you how to do this.

 

Alternatively, you may wish to visit www.aboutcookies.org which contains comprehensive information on how to do this on a wide variety of browsers. You will also find details on how to delete cookies from your machine as well as more general information about cookies.

 

If you wish to view a cookie’s code, just open your cookie file in your browser and click on a cookie to open it. You’ll see a short string of text and numbers. The numbers are your identification card, which can only be seen by the server that gave you the cookie. For information on how to do this on the browser of your mobile phone you will need to refer to your device manual.
