Cookies Policy – Information Iridium collects from you
a. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes a unique identifier that is sent to your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a “device”) browser from a website’s computer and is stored on your device’s hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser’s preferences allow it, but (to protect your privacy) your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, not the cookies sent to you by other sites. Many sites do this whenever a user visits their website in order to track online traffic flows.
Cookies record information about your online preferences and allow us to tailor the websites to your interests. Users have the opportunity to set their devices to accept all cookies, to notify them when a cookie is issued, or not to receive cookies at any time. The last of these means that certain personalised services cannot then be provided to that user and accordingly you may not be able to take full advantage of all of Iridium’s web site features. Each browser is different, so check the “Help” menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.
Information supplied by cookies can help us to analyse the profile of our visitors and help us to provide you with a better user experience. For example: if on a previous visit you went to our solutions pages, we might find this out from your cookie and highlight solution information on your second and subsequent visits.
Iridium may also use a number of independent measurement and research companies. They gather information regarding the visitors to Iridium website on our behalf using cookies, log file data and code which is embedded on our website. Iridium uses this type of information to help improve the services it provides to its users. Iridium strictly require that third parties do not use any information for their own business or other purposes.
