A. What are cookies and similar technologies?
A cookie is a text file stored by a web server on a computer or mobile device, and the content of a cookie can be retrieved and read only by the server that created the cookie. Cookies are unique to the browser or mobile application you are using. The text in a cookie often consists of identifiers, site names, and some numbers and characters. Similar to cookies, local shared objects (also called "Flash cookies") and HTML5 local storage store information on your device and can record some information about your activities and preferences.
B. Types of Cookies
Cookies allow the user and their device to be recognized on the next visit to the website via the browser, depending on their duration of use, and to store some information about the user's preferences (for example, language preference or site settings) and past actions. Huawei uses the following cookies on this website:
What are essential cookies and can I reject them?
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off without affecting the use of the site. These cookies are usually set in response to certain actions you take on the site that determine your cookie preferences or use our live chat to speak to a customer representative. We use these cookies as we believe it is in both our and your legitimate interests to enable the site to function properly. You can set your browser to block or alert you to these cookies, but some parts of the website will not work without them. To learn how to set your browser to block or alert you to these cookies, see here: Internet Explorer > Google Chrome > Mozilla Firefox > Safari > Opera.
Why do we use essential cookies?
Typically we use these cookies to fulfill a specific function on the website, for example, retaining search results where you use live chat or internal search function so that if you click on search result links you can then return back to the retained search results.
What data do essential cookies collect and use?
Essential cookies seldom collect and use any personal data, though they may contain an ID code which allows the website to distinguish you as an individual visitor from all other visitors on the website at the same time. These types of unique ID code are used to maintain a server session to enable functions you have requested, such as using internal search. For example, in the live chat example above, the user ID is associated with previous customer service chat records.
How long do we retain this data?
Essential cookies are typically session cookies and only retain data for the duration of your visit to the website. However, if our visitors support our live chat functionality, the data is retained for a longer period of time to remember you on return visits.
Do we share any data with third parties?
We use third-party infrastructure suppliers to help us build and manage our website. Additionally, third-party suppliers providing services to us on our website have access to the data linked to your cookie ID. For example, our customer service live chat service provider has access to live chat logs linked to your cookie ID so that previous cookie data is securely stored on those service providers’ servers. Our services providers have been carefully selected and commissioned by us, are contractually bound by our instructions, and will not process your data for any other purposes.
What essential cookies do we use?
Essential cookies rarely collect and use personal data, but may contain an identification code that allows the website to simultaneously distinguish you as an individual visitor from all other visitors to the website. This type of unique identification code allows it to maintain a server session to enable requested functions such as searching within the site.
How long do we keep this data?
What are analytic cookies and can I reject them?
These cookies, also known as “performance cookies”, “measurement cookies” or “statistical cookies”, allow us to count visits and visitor sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. The data Huawei receives from these cookies is aggregated and anonymous, it is not personal data. However, the third parties providing these statistical services, Google Analytics and AT Internet, do process personal data about you in order to provide us with aggregated data about our website visitors. We use these cookies to understand how visitors interact with our website, for example, to see if users are abandoning certain pages or experiencing issues. We use these cookies as it is in our legitimate interests to monitor the performance of the website. You can reject analytic cookies at any time by changing your Cookie Settings.
Why do we use analytic cookies?
We use analytic cookies to enable measurement and analytics. These cookies enable us to, for example, understand: - which websites people visit before landing on our website, for example, whether the visitor came directly to our website, or whether they clicked on a link from a search engine or a social media post - which are the most and least popular pages on our website, how long visitors spend on each page and each part of the page, which links and buttons they click on - information about the device you are using to access our site, for example, device brand and model, which browser or operating system you are using, and - demographic information about visitors to our site, for example, statistics about what percentage of our web visitors are male or female, their age range, and their interests, for example, photography and technology.
What data do analytic cookies collect and use?
How long do we retain this data?
The retention period of analytic cookies varies from 24 hours to 24 months, depending on the purpose of the cookie. For example, some cookies only store information for 24 hours, to remember you as a unique visitor to the website on that day. Others may last as long as 24 months. For example, we might publish two versions of the same webpage to see which works better and is more popular, then a cookie will remember whether you visited version a or version b of the page, and ensure that you see the same version on subsequent return visits, so we obtain clear data results on the a/b testing.
Do we share data with third parties?
What are advertising cookies and can I reject them?
We use advertising cookies to collect information about your online activities and interests and provide you with advertisements that correlate most highly to your profile and interests. These cookies are set through our site by our advertising partners. They are used to build a profile of your interests and show relevant ads on other websites. We also use social media cookies linking to ‘Like’ buttons and ‘Share’ buttons on social media. We use these cookies to show you relevant, not irrelevant, ads, and avoid you being repeatedly shown the same ad, and to enable you to ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ our content on social media. These cookies are only set on your device if you agree to them when you first visit our website.
Why do we use advertising cookies?
We use advertising cookies to build up a picture of your browsing behaviour so that we can either show or suppress our ads, depending on which are most relevant to you. We use social media cookies so that you can ‘Like’ or ‘Share’ our content and engage with the Huawei brand on social media.
What data do advertising cookies collect and use?
Advertising cookies store unique IDs that are associated with a profile on our advertising partners’ servers. These profiles record your browsing behaviour and actions linked to your browsing information, such as actions you take on the site (links clicked or buttons clicked), as well as technical specifications about your device and your location (based on your IP address). Google’s advertising cookies may also link to Google ID, if you are logged into your account while on our website, further building a detailed profile about you. As many other websites also use advertising cookies, advertising partners don’t just have a profile of how you use our website, but also how you use other websites. This enables advertisers to build a very detailed profile about you, including your age, gender, interests, language, engagement levels, network, and browser. Social media cookies collect your IP address and browser string and send this back to the social media site that embedded the cookie, enabling the social media site to recognise you have visited our site. This applies irrespective of whether you have an account with that social media site.
How long do we retain this data?
The retention period of advertising cookies varies typically from 30 days to 2 years, depending on the length of our specific advertising campaigns (e.g., whether for a specific competition we might be running, or a longer campaign to advertise one of our devices).
Google Tag Manager
Google Remarketing Ads
Our Google remarketing ads feature (also known as web retargeting ads) allows our Visitors to create and manage advertisements on the Google Display Network. When a Visitor elects to use this feature, Huawei installs a Google tracking pixel on that Visitor’s Site through the Snippet. The Snippet also allows that Visitor’s Site to set a Huawei cookie that will recognize Site end users via ads placed with the Google remarketing ads feature. These technologies facilitate the placement of advertising campaigns on the Google Display Network and enable Huawei to provide reporting to our Visitors about the performance of these advertising campaigns. To refuse these cookies, please follow the instructions below under the heading “How can I control cookies?” Alternatively, please click on the relevant opt-out link here.
Social Media Cookies
Social media cookies allow users to interact more easily with social media, such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. We do not control social media cookies and they do not allow us to gain access to your social media accounts. Please refer to the relevant social media platform’s privacy policies for information about their cookies.
We use Facebook services to deliver our adverts to you. You can control how Facebook uses data to show you ads by using your ad preference settings in Facebook. Further information about how Facebook uses personal information can be found in cookies, ads, and preferences. On your Facebook ad preferences, you will see that ads may be delivered to you according to 'interests' or specific advertisers and you can manage your ad preference settings for both of these. You may also be able to use your device settings to configure your advertising preferences. Where you have opted out of receiving targeted advertising, you may still see non-targeted online adverts from us, if your ‘interests’ settings on Facebook are aligned to an audience segment (pre-defined by Facebook) that we are associated with. The display of such ads is controlled by Facebook, not us.
