What are cookies?
“Cookies” are small text files placed on your hard drive or mobile phone device that assist us in providing a more customised website experience for you.

Why do we use cookies?
Cookies help our website to function properly, giving you a better experience. For example, we collect tracking information and statistics about page visits, navigation and video viewing to determine what items are of greatest interest and if it’s easy for users to find content easily. Tracking information is also used to generate various reports about the use of our websites. These reports contain aggregated information about users. We do not link the website usage statistics and other reports to individual people.

We may also utilise online identification technologies from marketing partners, third party sites and social media platforms. These technologies help us measure the success of our marketing and awareness campaigns and to understand how visitors navigate to the websites as a result of Nanosonics promotional material, such as advertisements and email campaigns. We use these technologies to compile statistics about visitors who interact with the websites and other Nanosonics online content, to gauge the effectiveness of our promotional material, and to provide more pertinent information to our visitors.

We use site analytics providers that may set cookies in your browser. Site activity information collected by these analytics providers may be combined with personal information we hold about you.

In order to better manage our websites and to improve the user experience, we also log information on our operational systems and identify categories of visitors by items such as domains, browser types, and IP addresses. Statistics are reported in the aggregate to our webmasters. Anonymous log information is also an effective information resource.

In most cases, you may refuse or delete one or more cookies and still access the websites, but the functionality of the sites you want to visit may be impaired. You may delete site cookies from your system after you finish browsing the websites if you wish to do so.
