What are Cookies and Does SIMCO Use Them?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer by websites and services that you visit or access. They are widely used to make websites and services work and function with greater efficiency. They also provide information about our users’ experience during use of or interaction with our websites, Products, services, and advertisements. Some cookies last only for the duration of your web session and expire when you exit your browser; other cookies may last for longer than your web session, including after you exit your browser, for example by remembering you when you return to our website. The table below explains the cookies that SIMCO and our third-party partners use and why.
|Strictly Necessary Cookies||
These cookies are required to enable basic site functionality such as providing a secure login and remembering your progress through an order.
These cookies are used to record a user’s choice and settings that enable our websites and Products to operate correctly or that maintain your preferences over time and may be stored on your device. For example, SIMCO saves preferences, such as language, browser, and multimedia player settings. This enables the browser to remember these setting each time you return to the site.
When you sign into a website or Product using your SIMCO account, we store a unique ID number, and the time you signed in, in an encrypted cookie on your device. This cookie allows you to move from page to page within our software without having to sign in again on each page. You can also save your sign-in information, so you do not have to sign in each time you return to the site.
SIMCO uses performance cookies to ensure that its websites and Products are operating efficiently.
Some of our websites and Products include code snippets provided by social media companies that can sense if you are already logged into a given social media account so you can easily share SIMCO content with other social media users via that account. These code snippets read cookies set previously by social media company web content while you are logged in and browsing such content on those social media sites.
Social media companies will not be able to sense if you are already logged into a given social media account if you turn off Targeting Cookies. Note: If you opt out of targeted advertising, we store your opt-out preference in a cookie on your device.
We embed videos from SIMCO's YouTube channel using YouTube’s privacy-enhanced mode. This mode may set cookies on your computer once you click on the YouTube video player. YouTube will not store personally identifiable cookie information for playbacks of embedded videos if you turn off Targeting Cookies.
How to Control Cookies
You can turn Targeting Cookies and Performance Cookies off at any time by visiting our Cookie Preferences link at the footer of the page.
You can also control cookies by adjusting the settings within your internet browser. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but provide controls that allow you to block or delete them. For example, in most modern browsers, you can block or delete cookies by clicking Settings > Privacy > Cookies. Instructions for blocking or deleting cookies in other browsers may be available in each browser's privacy or help documentation. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.aboutcookies.org.
Certain features of SIMCO’s Products and services depend on cookies. Please be aware that if you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use those features, and preferences that are dependent on cookies may be lost.
