Cookies and Similar Technologies:
When you visit our website, we collect certain information by automated means, using technologies such as cookies, pixel tags, browser analysis tools, server logs and web beacons.
Cookies are small text files that websites and social media sites send to your computer or other Internet-connected devices to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings in your browser. Cookies allow you to be recognized when you return. They also help provide a customized experience and help enable user authentication to ensure authorized users are accessing their accounts on certain commercial pages.
Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphic images placed on website pages and social posts that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or share a post on social media, the pixel tags and web beacons generate a notice of that action. These tools allow us to measure response to our communications and improve our web pages and promotions.
Below are the categories of cookies that may be used on our site:
Strictly Necessary Cookies:
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site would then not work properly. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies your activity will not be part of those aggregated statistics and Corning will not be able to monitor the performance of the website with a full set of aggregated data.
These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies some or all of these services may not function properly.
These cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites. They do not directly store personal information, but are based on uniquely identifying your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.
Social Media Cookies:
These cookies are set by a range of social media services that we have added to the site to enable you to share our content with your friends and networks. They are capable of tracking your browser across other sites and building up a profile of your interests. This may impact the content and messages you see on other websites you visit. If you do not allow these cookies you may not be able to use or see these sharing tools.
Information that Corning collects and how we use it:
We collect different types of information from cookies and other technologies. For example, we may collect information about the device you use to access our website, your operating system type, browser type, domain, and other system settings, as well as the language your system uses and the country and time zone where your device is located, as well as the personal information described in our Internet Privacy Notice. Our server logs might also record the IP address or derivative of the device you used to connect to the Internet. An IP address is a unique identifier that devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the internet. We may also collect information about the website you were visiting before you came to Corning and the website you visit after you leave our site.
We and our third party service providers, including Google, may use the information that we collect about you (whether directly from our website, from our mobile applications, through your device(s), or from a third party) to help us and our third party service providers identify other devices that you use (e.g., a mobile phone, tablet, other computer, etc.). We, and our third party service providers also may use the cross-device use and other information we learn about you to serve targeted advertising on your devices and to send you emails. To opt-out of cross-device advertising, you may visit our Cookies Settings page to disable targeting cookies. Please note: if you opt-out of these targeted advertising cookies, your opt-out will be specific to the web browser, application, or device from which you accessed the opt-out. If you use multiple devices or web browsers, you will need to opt-out via each browser or device that you use.
We use geolocation services to determine your location based on your IP address and set default cookie functionality. Depending on how you access our site, these services may mistakenly identify your location and therefore set default cookie behavior to something other than your normal point of access. You can access our Cookie Settings page to review and change those selections as often as you would like by selecting the Cookie Settings button on this page.
In many cases, the information we collect using cookies and other tools is only used in a non-identifiable way, without reference to any personal information. For example, we use information we collect about website users to understand website traffic patterns and to optimize our websites.
If your browser supports a ‘Do-Not-Track’ capability and it is turned on, all non-essential cookies will be disabled until you explicitly enable them via our Cookies Settings page.
We use Google Analytics to track general visitor data and to analyze how effective our Google Ads are on Google search result pages. The data is therefore used for statistical analysis of visitor and click behavior on the website. We also optimize the operation of the website with this information. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally required to do so.
Profiling and remarketing
Based on behavior on the website, profiles are created with remarketing lists, in order to be able to show relevant advertisements to visitors on other sites based on previously displayed behavior on the website, which is stored in targeting cookies. With this we hope to inform you even better about our services. This data cannot be traced back to a specific person. For this we have enabled Google Analytics Advertising Features. By enabling the Advertising Features, we enable Google Analytics to collect data about our traffic via Google advertising cookies and identifiers, in addition to data collected through the standard Google Analytics implementation. With this we collect data for building audiences so that we can show relevant advertisements. This aggregated data is shared with Google, so that these advertisements can be shown in the Google network. You can opt-out from the Google Analytics Advertising Features by clicking the button Cookie Settings and set the consent for targeting cookies to ‘off’ or change the ad personalization feature in your Google account.
In addition to our own cookies, we may also use various third-party cookies to report usage statistics of the Service, deliver advertisements on and through the Service, and other similar activities.
