ST Cookies policy

This Cookies Policy describes how STMicroelectronics International N.V and its subsidiaries (“ST”) and its partners use cookies and similar technologies such as pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs, JavaScript, and local storage (“Cookies”) in connection with the websites (including the extranet myST and mobile websites and apps) owned and controlled by ST (the “ST Sites”).

By using an ST Site, you agree to the terms of this Cookies Policy and consent to the use of Cookies by ST in accordance with the terms of this Cookies Policy.

Cookies may be used to collect information that is personally identifiable, or that can become personally identifiable if ST combines it with other information. In such cases, the ST Website Privacy Policy will apply in addition to this Cookies Policy.

About Cookies

Cookies are small files – usually made of letters and numbers – downloaded on to a device (computer, tablet, phone, or similar device) when you visit a website. Cookies allow a website to recognize a user’s device and are used by website owners to operate their websites more efficiently.

Cookies are used to understand how the site or service is being used, to help you navigate between pages efficiently, to help remember your preferences, and generally to improve your browsing experience. Cookies may also be used to ensure marketing information you see online is more relevant to you and your interests and to deliver advertisements and communications relevant to your interests, provided you have subscribed to these advertisements and communications.

ST and its service providers use different types of Cookies on ST Sites:

(i)     Strictly necessary Cookies. These Cookies are essential for the operation of ST Sites (for example, to enable you to log into secure areas of our website or use a shopping cart). These Cookies enable you to access the ST Sites and use their features. Disabling these Cookies will encumber the ST Sites’ performance and may make the features and service unavailable.

(ii)     Analytics Cookies. These Cookies collect information about how you use the ST Sites for the purposes of improving and optimizing the way ST Sites work and to ensure that visitors can easily find the information they are looking for on ST Sites. For example, Analytics Cookies measure performance indicators such as which pages visitors go to most often and whether they get error messages from web pages.

(iii)     Functionality Cookies. These Cookies are used to recognize you when you return to ST Sites. This enables ST to personalize content for you, and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

(iv)      Advertising and Targeting Cookies. These Cookies record your online activities and retain user preferences, allowing those preferences to be used in future browsing sessions, in order to make the content displayed on ST Sites more relevant to you and your interests. ST and its third-party partners may also use these types of Cookies to deliver advertisements and communications relevant to your interests and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. These Cookies can remember that your device has visited a site or service, and may also be able to track your device’s browsing activity on other sites or services other than ST Sites. This information may be shared with organizations outside ST, such as advertisers and/or advertising networks to deliver the advertising, and to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign.

Session and Persistent Cookies

Cookies may be either “persistent” or “session”. A persistent Cookie will be stored by a web browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date, unless deleted by the user before the expiry date. ST may use persistent Cookies for storing your preferences so that they are available for the next visit, keep tracking how often you visit ST Sites, how your use the ST Sites, and the effectiveness of advertising efforts; while a session cookie will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

First and third-parties Cookies

Whether a Cookie is ‘first’ or ‘third’ party refers to the website placing the Cookie. First party Cookies are cookies set by the ST Site visited by the user. Third party cookies are Cookies that are set by a website or a domain other than the ST Site. If a user visits a website and a separate company sets a Cookie through that website this would be a third party Cookie.

Purpose of use

ST and its service providers use Cookies for various purposes, including to:

  • help ST and third parties obtain information about your visits to ST Sites;
  • process your orders;
  • analyze your visiting patterns to improve ST Sites;
  • understand how you interact with e-mails, advertisements, or other content;
  • enhance your experience and understand traffic patterns;
  • deliver advertising, communications, and content from us and third parties, specific to your interests;
  • perform analytics and help ST to optimize ST Sites, and to help serve you advertising based on your interests;
  • aggregate statistics about how ST Sites are used;
  • remember your language and other preferences;
  • help you obtain information you are looking for;
  • provide a safe and secure service for online transactions; and
  • measure how many people use ST Sites, and how they use them, keep ST Sites running efficiently and better understand ST Sites’ audiences.
