Cookie policy

We use cookies in connection with wellington.com. Cookies are small pieces of software that are issued to your computer or device and that store and sometimes track information about your use of the site. This policy explains how we use cookies and other tracking technologies and how you can manage your preference regarding their use. By using wellington.com, you consent to our use of cookies as explained below.

Types of cookies we use

We use cookies for various purposes, which can be captured under the following categories: Necessary, Analytics, and Functional.

Necessary

Most of our cookies are necessary for operation of wellington.com or services that you request as an authorized user of wellington.com, such as to remember text you may have entered when you navigate back to a page in the same session. These cookies are necessary for the functioning of wellington.com, and as such they cannot be disabled.

Analytics cookies

As is true of most websites, we and our third-party service providers use cookies that collect information about the performance of wellington.com, including how you interact with the website and whether you encountered any errors. These cookies do not gather any personal information and are only used to improve how the website works.

Functional cookies

We also use cookies to provide optional features and functionality that you may access on wellington.com. For example, a cookie can help us identify whether you have downloaded software in the past that allows you to access documents so that you won't have to download it again. We use cookies to customize and personalize wellington.com based on preferences you may have expressed either directly by selecting an option or setting or indirectly by your prior use.

Other tracking technologies used

We and our third-party partners may also employ web beacons or clear gifs (aka web beacons/web bugs), local storage (HTML5 storage) and scripts that help better manage content on wellington.com. Web beacons are tiny, clear graphics that are embedded invisibly on web pages. They are used to understand and monitor online movements of users so that we may better understand and improve their experiences on wellington.com. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are not stored on a user's computer or device. We do not tie the information gathered to your personal information. Local storage functions similarly to cookies and can be managed through your browser settings. Scripts are lines of code embedded in the source of the website that do not store any information on your device, but enable certain features on the website to operate.

Third party links

When you click on a link to a third-party web site or other third-party resource, the third party may place a cookie from its own site. We do not control the dissemination of these cookies. You should check the relevant third-party web site for more information about these cookies.

Like other aggregated information from wellington.com that does not identify individual authorized users, we may analyze and share non-personal information collected through cookies with third parties (such as our business partners and service providers) in marketing materials and in public disclosures.

Managing cookies

Most web browsers automatically accept cookies but, if you prefer, you may take certain steps to control the use of cookies by modifying your browser to reject cookies or to notify you whenever a cookie is sent to your hard drive. You can learn more about cookies and ways to manage them at http://www.allaboutcookies.org/ or http://youronlinechoices.eu. Please be aware that restricting cookies on wellington.com may impact the functionality and performance of the site.
