Cookie Policy

This policy explains what cookies we use on our websites www.solutionspt.com, www.wonderware.ie and https://www.wonderware.co.uk (our “Sites”) and why we use them. Please read this policy fully.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small pieces of computer code that are placed on your computer, tablet or device when you access our Sites. They are not harmful to your devices (like a virus or malicious code).

Cookies do not store personal information such as card numbers and passwords. Their most common use is to identify whether or not you have been on a website before.

When you next log on to one of our Sites, your computer or mobile device’s stored cookies will send a message to our Site to let it know you have been there before. This is why you may notice that some download registration forms are pre-populated with your details that you entered previously, in order to make further download processes more convenient.

SolutionsPT wants to be open with our customers and suppliers and to reassure you that our cookies are safe and are used to help provide a smoother process for you. Our cookies may appear with the file names, as listed in the table below, so if you spot these on your computer, you will understand why they have been stored there.

For further guidance on how to manage your computer’s cookies as well as details of the benefits of allowing them to be stored on your devices, please see below.

HOW DO WE USE COOKIES?

  • Our cookies help us to:
  • improve the speed and security of our Sites;
  • continuously improve our Sites; and
  • make our marketing more efficient (ultimately helping us to offer the service we do at the price we do).

We do not use cookies to:

  • collect any personally identifiable information (without your express permission);
  • collect any sensitive information (without your express permission);
  • pass personally identifiable information to third parties (without your express permission); or
  • pay sales commissions.

For more details about how we process personally identifiable information please see our Privacy Policy.

We have set out brief details of the cookies and similar technologies we use together with an overview of why we use them. To understand the table it is useful to know the following:

  • cookies have a lifetime. Some only last until you close your browser or a short time. These are called ‘session cookies’. Some last longer though, for example, to allow a website to recognise you when you return to them. These are called ‘persistent cookies’.
  • cookies placed directly by a website owner (like us) are known as ‘first party cookies’ and most modern websites also use technology provided by other people/businesses. Cookies placed by other parties are known as ‘third party cookies’.
