What is a cookie?
A "cookie" is technology that allows IoTConnect.io to store tokens of information (an 'identifier') in your browser used only by IoTConnect.io while you are on the website. Cookies are not used to determine the personal identity of anyone who is merely visiting IoTConnect.io. They serve to help us track traffic patterns to determine a user’s preferred location and language so that we can direct them to the correct home page when they visit IoTConnect.io.
Cookies have other uses as well. For example, in the webinar section, they are used to provide entry for subscribers who have chosen the automatic log-on feature during registration. Cookies are also used to prevent online poll participants from voting more than once.
On certain pages of IoTConnect.io, cookies are used to help us track your interests while you browse the internet, so we can tailor more relevant content to you, and to understand what is important to you.
How do I disable cookies?
If you do not want to receive a cookie from IoTConnect.io, you have the option of setting your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, so that you may determine whether to accept it or not. However, please be aware that if you do turn off 'cookies' in your browser, you will not be able to fully experience some of IoTConnect.io. For example, you will not be able to benefit from personalization features of the site.

The cookies used by IoTConnect.io perform four functions, as classified below:

Targeting and tracking cookies are provided via trusted third party suppliers. Should you require more information regarding our suppliers and how these cookies operate please contact us.
What are web beacons?
IoTConnect occasionally advertises on third party web sites. As part of our effort to track the success of our advertising campaigns, we may at times use a visitor identification technology such as "web beacons," or "action tags," which count visitors who have come to IoTConnect.io after being exposed to our banner ad on a third party site. We do not use this technology to access your personal information and it is only used to compile aggregated statistics about visitors who come to IoTConnect.io to gauge the effectiveness of our ads.
By navigating on IoTConnect.io, you agree that we can place cookie and web beacons on your computer or device. If you prefer not to receive cookies or web beacons, then you should stop using IoTConnect.io, or consult your browsing settings.
