A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers we store on your browser or the hard drive of your computer if you agree. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer’s hard drive.
We use both persistent and session cookies. Our persistent cookies last no longer than one (1) year.
Cookies on our website collect several types of information, including information about your usage of our website and we may collect your IP address as a logged file. An IP address is the number assigned to your device, for example your laptop or mobile phone, when your device accesses the internet.
To the extent that IP addresses are personal data under applicable data protection law, we treat it as personal data. If we link information collected through cookies with any personal data you provide to us through the website, e.g., through submitting a form, we also treat that information as personal data.

You should be aware that any preferences will be lost if you delete cookies. This includes where you have opted out from cookies, as this requires an opt-out cookie to be set. Also, if you block cookies completely many websites will not work properly and some functionality on these websites will not work at all. We do not recommend turning cookies off when using our website and Services for these reasons.
If you are primarily concerned about third-party cookies generated by advertisers, you can turn these off separately.
When you are on eInfochips.com or any other eInfochips property website you may notice that there is content from other websites – for example a video from YouTube or links to maps using google maps. We may also provide you with the opportunity to share information with others using social networks such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We add this content from time to time to improve the user experience. As a result, you may be sent cookies from these other websites. We do not control these cookies and we suggest you check these third-party websites for more information about the cookies they use and how you can manage them.
Please note that if you want to opt out from targeted advertising cookies, this does not mean that you will receive less advertising when you use our services. This just means that the advertising you see will not be as relevant or customized to you.
However, if you still want to opt out of these third party advertising cookies, you can do this by visiting the Interactive Advertising Bureau’s website www.youronlinechoices.com which lists all ad serving cookies that are currently set on your device and tells you how to opt-out from each of them. Please note that this website lists many more networks than those used at eInfochips.com.
Please remember that if you choose to opt out of targeted advertising from a specific company or via www.youronlinechoices.com, it only applies to the web browser on the device you are using. You will therefore need to follow the same process on every device you use or different web browser that you use to exercise the same choice.
