What is a cookie?
The NeoPhotonics website uses cookies. Cookies are small text files that are commonly downloaded to your computer when you visit a website. Cookies are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide website owners with information about the use of their website.

By continuing to use the NeoPhotonics website you consent to our use of cookies in the manner and for the purposes below.

You can block or disable cookies (see section below entitled “How can I disable Cookies?”). Without cookies enabled, however, our website may not work as well as intended.

Types of cookies

When you are trying to understand cookies and how to control them, it can help to know some terminology. Cookies placed by the website you’re visiting are sometimes called “first party cookies,” while cookies placed by other companies are called “third party cookies.” The length of time a cookie stays on your device depends on its type. We use two types of cookies on our websites.

Session cookies are temporary cookies that are deleted when you close your browser. Session cookies help with the functionality of our website. For example, session cookies help our website remember what you chose on the previous page, avoiding the need to re-enter information.

Persistent cookies stay on your device even after you close your browser, and they remain on your device until they expire or until you delete them. We use persistent cookies to help us identify you as a unique visitor to our website, but these persistent cookies don’t contain information that specifically identify you to another person.

How can I disable cookies?

If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can set your web browser to disable cookies. Note that most browsers offer different levels of privacy, such as allowing first party cookies but blocking third party cookies, or notifying you each time a website wants to install a cookie. Be aware that disabling cookies in this way will prevent new cookies from being set, but will not stop previously set cookies from operating on your device unless you delete all cookies in your browser settings.
