Our Tracking Technologies
We collect Personal Information and other information using digital tracking tools when you use our websites or mobile applications, interact with our emails or applications provided on connected devices, or otherwise engage with our digital offerings. We may also partner with third parties that collect information this way. These third parties may place similar tracking tools on our Websites, applications, and advertising to facilitate tracking, advertising, and measurement services.
The tools that we, our vendors, and third parties may use include:
Browser and Flash Cookies: Browser cookies are small pieces data placed on your computer as you navigate websites with your browser. Browser cookies allow websites and various third parties to distinguish your device from others by having the cookie consist of a unique identifier or other data. Cookies can have many uses, such as to target advertising as well as to enable website functionality and for security. We use both session cookies (which expire after you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them). Persistent cookies can be removed by following your Internet browser help file directions. (Each browser is different, so check the "help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.) If you reject all cookies, you will not be able to use Hubbell products or services that require you to "sign in", and some areas of our Website may not work properly, and you may not be able to take full advantage of all offerings. You can adjust your cookie preferences by clicking here. Essential and functional cookies cannot be disabled.
Flash Cookies: Local shared objects (such as "Flash" cookies) are associated with non-Browser software like Flash Player. Local shared objects can be used like cookies to distinguish your device from others but will not be deleted or blocked using browser cookie controls. You can visit Adobe.com for guidance on how to delete and block Flash cookies.
Web Beacons & Pixels: Web beacons and Pixels are electronic image files that are used by third-party advertisers, analytics companies, and others to collect information about how users interact with content. This technology is embedded in web pages you visit and cause your browser to share its IP address with the third-party source of the beacon, together with any cookies associated with that third-party. They allow us to count visitors to our webpages, evaluate the effectiveness of our promotional campaigns or recommend relevant products and services to you when you browse social media or other Websites. Blocking cookies will not stop your IP address from being shared through the use of beacons.
E-tags: E-tags are used to prevent duplicative downloading of content to your browser, which can enhance browser performance. E-tags use unique identifiers for content that can also be used to distinguish your browser in certain instances from others. Typically, e-tags are only deleted if all Internet history, cache, and cookies are deleted. You should check your browser software for how to delete e-tags in your particular case.
Mobile Applications: Software in our mobile and other connected-device applications collects information about how you interact with the digital services.
