Cookies are small bits of data we store on the device (computer, mobile phone, tablet or any other mobile device) that you use to access any of the Momentive websites (the Sites), so we can recognize repeat users. Each cookie expires after a certain period of time depending on what we use it for.

In our Cookies Notice, we use the word “cookies” as a catchall term to include not only cookies, but also other technologies such as pixels, web beacons and page tags. Like most commercial websites we use cookies on Momentive web pages.

We use cookies for several reasons. Below we list and describe the various types of cookies we use on our Site.

Below we list the different types of cookies that may be used on the Sites. Section 7 includes detailed lists of cookies used on each of our Sites which include information about type of cookie, expiry periods and links to third party sites where applicable.

The Sites use both first party cookies (which are set by the Sites being visited) and third party cookies (which are set by a server located outside the domain of our Sites).

Certain cookies are necessary in order for the Sites and Services to operate correctly and remain secure, to ensure essential functionality, to measure and analyze site traffic at the aggregate level and to stabilize the Sites. Often these cookies are set in response to a request for service or functionality made by you. We have to load required cookies for legitimate interests pursued by us in delivering essential functionality of our Sites and Services to you and your respondents.

These cookies collect information about your choices and preferences, and collect information about your use of the Sites and Services which enable us to improve functionality. For example, these cookies show us which are the most frequently visited pages on the Sites, allow us to present the Sites according to the settings you selected, help us record any difficulties you have with the Sites, and show us whether our advertising is effective or not. In some cases these cookies allow us to see the overall patterns of usage on the Sites, rather than the usage of a single person (except where that is part of the necessary function of the cookie).

We may use cookies to market our services to you on third party websites or to measure and track the effectiveness of our marketing efforts so that we can tailor our advertising more effectively.

We also contract with third party advertising networks that may collect IP addresses and other information from web beacons on our websites, emails, and on third party websites. Ad networks follow your online activities over time by collecting website navigational information through automated means, including through the use of cookies. They use this information to provide advertisements about products and services that may be of interest to you. You may see these advertisements on other websites. 

Users in some locations can manage their cookie preferences and withdraw consent to use of certain cookies within our cookie banner. Users outside these locations can remove or disable cookies within their browser settings. The settings and steps for managing cookies vary by browser, so we suggest referring to your browser’s documentation. For more information see our Help Center article here. One important note is that if you do go this route, this might adversely impact your ability to use our services effectively. Enabling certain types of cookies ensures a smoother experience when you use our site.

If you are a customer and you separately use cookies or similar technologies on your site in conjunction with our products, you are independently responsible for management of the data collected through those cookies and for compliance with all laws related to usage of these technologies.

Regulatory agencies such as the U.S. Federal Trade Commission have promoted the concept of Do Not Track as a mechanism to permit Internet users to control online tracking activity across websites through their browser settings. Since no industry standard has been adopted, we currently do not process or comply with any web browser’s “do-not-track” signal or other similar mechanism that indicates a request to disable online tracking of individual users who visit our Sites or use our Services.
