This Cookie Notice (“Notice”) details how the cookies are used when you are visiting domains managed by HERE.
What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file placed on your device (computer, mobile phone, etc.) by the websites that you visit in order to remember information about you and your preferences. Cookies make the website work more efficiently and can be used for the provision of more personalized services. The expression “cookies” can refer to browser cookies as well as a number of similar technologies including tracking pixels/web beacons, local shared objects/flash cookies and sensors, which provide access to device information .
What types of cookies do we use?
There are two broad categories of cookies what we are using. First party cookies, served directly by us to your device or Third-party cookies, set by other entities or providers on our behalf.
Our domains use the following types of First party- and Third-party cookies:
Strictly necessary (essential cookies): These cookies are essential for running our web sites and are the key to providing you a seamless experience. For that reason, these cookies are set by default as always active cookies, and we do not request your consent to use them. However, you can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the sites will not work then. These cookies are used e.g., to remember products of interest when you are redirected to a payment site for a possible purchase.
Functional cookies: These cookies help make the content as personalized as possible, for example by showing you targeted banners and relevant recommendations (e.g.: functionality cookies can be used to store search results and language and to enable personalization).
Analytical and performance cookies: These cookies enable us to improve our websites and business processes by looking at how our websites are used. We use these cookies to understand e.g., unique users reading a particular article (to know what is popular), if a video file was viewed or abandoned half way through, or the effectiveness of our recruitment campaigns. We also look at where the content is accessed from so, we know how to arrange our sites for optimal user experience. These cookies do not collect information that could identify you.
Advertising and targeting cookies: We use these cookies to dynamically serve HERE ads on both HERE websites and selected third party websites. Our domains may also include elements that set cookies on behalf of a third party, e.g., a “Like”-button from Facebook or a “Tweet”-button from Twitter.
How long will cookies remain on your device?
Cookies can remain on your device for different periods of time, depend on whether it is a “Session” or “Persistent” cookie. A session cookie will expire at the end of your web session, when the browser is closed. A persistent cookie will be stored by a browser and will remain valid until its set expiration date, unless deleted by you before the expiration date via cookie manager or via changing the cookie setting in your browser.
