Cookie Notice

 

This Cookie Notice applies to the website accessible under us.swiftmicroscopes.com (“Site”).

 

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files containing certain information that are stored on your device, e.g., computer or mobile device, when you use your device to access certain web pages. At our Site, we may use similar techniques, such as log files, web beacons, tags, pixels, etc. For the sake of consistency, all these techniques combined will be hereafter referred to as “cookies”.

 

The length of time that a cookie remains on your computer or mobile device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies last until you stop browsing and persistent cookies last until they expire or are deleted. Most of the cookies we use are persistent and will expire between 30 minutes and two years from the date they are downloaded to your device.

 

Why are cookies used?

Primarily, cookies are used to allow us to better serve users of our Site by making users’ experience and interaction as informative and relevant as possible. Some cookies are necessary for our site to function properly. For example, without cookies it would be difficult to make the Site remember that a user has logged in, or which product a user has put in her shopping cart. Some cookies, though not strictly necessary, enable valuable functions and services. For example, cookies for performance analytic purpose help us to better understand a user’s behaviors on our Site so that we can improve the user friendliness of our Site and therefore enhance the user’s experience. Moreover, we include social media cookies to enable integration of social media into our Site, so that users can immediately like or share a page or product on user’s favourite social media service. Also, marketing cookies are included to enable personalized online ads that are more relevant and interesting to users.
