6 OUR USE OF COOKIES AND SIMILAR TECHNOLOGIES

In order to improve the Site and the Services provided thereon and to provide more convenient, relevant experiences to our customers, we and our agents may use "cookies", "web beacons" and similar devices to track your activities, e.g. the analytics service Adobe Analytics provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Ltd. A cookie is a small amount of data that is transferred to your browser by a web server and can only be read by the server that gave it to you. A cookie functions as your identification card and enables TEE to record your passwords and preferences. A cookie cannot be executed as code or deliver viruses. A web beacon is a small transparent .gif image that is embedded in an HTML page or email used to track when the page or email has been viewed. A similar tool may be used that may send data to a server when a set of user-initiated events occur such as for instance when the "Add to Cart" button is clicked. This tool is similar to a cookie. It tracks your visit and the data can only be read by the server that receives the data. It is different than a cookie in that it is not browser-based, may not function as an identification card and does not store any data on your computer.
 

While TEE uses cookies and similar tools to track your use of the Site and the Services provided thereon and web servers automatically log the IP/Internet address of your computer, TEE does not generally use this information to identify you personally. Exceptions to this are noted in this Privacy Policy. If you expressly provide consent for the Site and/or Services provided thereon to "remember" the unique identifier that you select when you register for various activities on the Site or Service, that unique identifier will be stored as a persistent cookie on your computer and that unique identifier will be linked to your registration information. As a result, your navigation path around the Site and the Services provided thereon will be tracked in identifiable form. Most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, and most services that include similar devices are typically initially activated to collect data. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This gives you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it (Cookies are obligatory for some web pages that require authorization. Users choosing not to accept cookies or similar tools will probably not be able to access those pages or the related products and/or services). Information about non-cookie tracking devices and their features, including disabling options, are contained in the information materials provided with such services or on Site pages relating to such services.

Google AdWords Remarketing

We use Google AdWords Remarketing to advertise TEE across the internet, in particular Google Display Network. AdWords remarketing will display ads to you based on what parts of the TEE Site you visited. To achieve this, the Site places a cookie in your web browser. This cookie does not in any way identify you or give access to your computer or mobile device.
 

The cookie is only used to indicate the following to other websites: “This person visited a particular page, so show them ads relating to that page.”
 

Google AdWords Remarketing allows us to tailor our marketing to better suit your needs and only display ads that are relevant to you.
 

If you do not wish to see ads from TEE, you can opt out in the following ways:
 

Disable "Ads Personalization" in Google’s Ads Settings.
Opt out of a third-party vendor’s use of cookies by visiting the Network Advertising Initiative's opt-out page.

Adobe Analytics

We use Adobe Analytics to collect information about how people use this site. We do this to make sure it is meeting user’s needs and to understand how we could do things better. Adobe Analytics stores information about what pages you visit, how long you are on the site, how you got here and what you click on.
 

The following cookies are set by Adobe Analytics:

‐ s_cc

‐ s_fid

‐ s_vi

‐ s_sq
 

Cookies are stored on your computer for this analysis. The information collected in this way is stored on servers, which could also be located in the United States of America. If you prevent the storage of cookies, you may not be able to fully use this Website. You can prevent cookies from being stored using your browser settings or by turning off anonymous Adobe Analytics cookies: https://toshibass.d2.sc.omtrdc.net/optout.html?locale=en_US
 

This Website uses Adobe Analytics (Omniture) with the settings "Before Geo-Lookup: Replace visitor’s last IP octet with 0" and "Obfuscate IP-Removed", which serves to shorten your IP address by removing the last octet and replacing it with a generic IP address, which can no longer be specifically allocated. Therefore, direct allocation to a person is not possible.

7 THIRD PARTY CONTRACTORS AND OTHER CONTROLLERS

As mentioned above, we may appoint sub-contractor data processors as required to deliver the Services, such as, without limitation, service providers to assist TEE with for example warranty inquiries and who will process personal information on our behalf and at our direction.  We conduct an appropriate level of due diligence and put in place necessary contractual documentation in relation to any sub-contractor to ensure that they process personal information appropriately and according to our legal and regulatory obligations.
