4. Cookies & Similar Technologies
We also use web beacons to help deliver cookies and compile analytics. These may include third-party web beacons, which are prohibited from collecting your personal information.

– Browser controls to block and delete cookies; and
– Controls from some analytics providers to opt out of data collection in web beacons.
Most TNIUS web sites use “cookies,” which are small pieces of data sent to your browser by a web server. Upon subsequent requests, your browser will send the cookie data to the same web server, or other web servers in the same domain, when accessing the web site. Cookies contain data that can be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. That data often consists of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identifies your computer, but may contain other information as well. Here is an example of a unique ID number stored in a cookie that TNIUS might place on your device when you visit one of our web sites: 0aj17be34l7srju0qcdnftigt0
– Sign-in and Authentication
– Site Analytics
In addition to the cookies TNIUS may set when you visit our web sites, third parties may also set certain cookies on your device when you visit TNIUS sites. In some cases, that is because we have hired the third party to provide certain services on our behalf, such as site analytics. In other cases, it is because our web pages contain content or ads from third parties, such as videos, news content or ads delivered by other ad networks. Because your browser connects to those third parties’ web servers to retrieve that content, those third parties can set or read their own cookies on your device and may collect information about your online activities across websites or online services.
How to Control Cookies
– Browser Controls to Block Cookies.
Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to block cookies. Instructions for blocking cookies in different browsers are usually available at each browser’s privacy statement or in their help files or settings pages.
Please be aware that if you choose to block cookies, you may not be able to sign in or use other interactive features of TNIUS sites and services that depend on cookies. This will not stop you from being able to call in for support, however it can restrict the use of some tools for the support.
– Browser Controls to Delete Cookies
If you accept cookies, you can delete them later. Instructions for deleting cookies in different browsers are usually available at each browser’s privacy statement or in their help files or settings pages.
Please be aware that if you choose to delete cookies, any settings and preferences controlled by those cookies will be deleted and may need to be recreated.
– Browser Controls for “Do Not Track” and Tracking Protection
Some newer browsers have incorporated “Do Not Track” features. Most of these features, when turned on, send a signal or preference to the web sites you visit indicating that you do not wish to be tracked. Those sites (or the third-party content on those sites) may continue to engage in activities you might view as tracking even though you have expressed this preference, depending on the sites’ privacy practices. Because there is not yet a common understanding of how to interpret the DNT signal, TNIUS does not currently respond to the browser DNT signals on its own websites or online services, or on third-party websites or online services where TNIUS provides content or is otherwise able to collect information.
