Siemens Healthineers Cookie Policy

Status: Feb 2020

This Cookie Policy applies to the present website operated by the Siemens Healthineers company referred to under “Corporate Information.”

When you visit Siemens Healthineers websites, information is stored on your device in the form of a "cookie." Cookies are small files that are stored on your device and save certain settings and data to exchange with our websites via your browser.
For example, cookies enable us to tailor a website to better match your interests or remember your settings so that you do not have to re-enter it every time.
If you do not want us to recognize your device, please configure your Internet browser to erase all cookies from your device, to block all cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored. You will find brief instructions on how to do this below.
Please note that certain functions of our website may no longer work, or not correctly, without cookies.

Types of cookies

Cookies, we use on this website, can be assigned to the following categories, depending on their function and intended purpose: Necessary Cookies, Preference Cookies, and Statistic Cookies.

Necessary Cookies
are needed for you to navigate within Siemens Healthineers websites and operate basic website functions, such as the issuance of anonymous Session IDs for bundling several related queries to a server.

Preference Cookies
enable a website to store information the user has already entered (such as user ID, language selection, or the user’s location), in order to offer improved, personalized functions to the user. Preference Cookies are also used to enable requested functions such as playing videos and to make a user’s decision to block or disable a certain function persistent (“opt-out cookies”).

Statistic Cookies
collect information on the usage of our websites, including for example the Internet browsers and operating systems used, the domain name of the website which you previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, and pages called up.
These cookies do not store any information that would make it possible to personally identify the user. The information collected with the aid of these cookies is aggregated and is therefore anonymous. These cookies serve the purpose of improving the user friendliness of a website and therefore enhancing the user’s experience. You can block the use of such cookies by creating an exclusion cookie through your webbrowser.

Cookies for marketing purposes
are used to offer more relevant content to users, based on their specific interests. They are also used to limit the display frequency of an ad and to measure and control the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They register whether users have visited a website or not, and which contents were used. This information may possibly also be shared with third parties, such as advertisers, for example. These cookies are often linked to the functions of third-party websites. You can block the use of such cookies by creating an opt-out cookie (see “managing cookies” below).
Marketing cookies enable our partners to track visitors across websites and build comprehensive user profiles. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for publishers and third party advertisers.

Unclassified cookies
Unclassified cookies are cookies that we are in the process of classifying, together with the providers of individual cookies.
