Intel uses various technologies to help improve the efficiency of our websites, including your experience when browsing our sites. These technologies include cookies, clear GIFs, web bugs, and web beacons.
A cookie is a small file - usually consisting of letters and numbers - placed on your computer, tablet, phone, or similar device, when you use that device to visit a website. Cookies are widely used by website owners to make their websites work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide reporting information.
Different types of cookies are used to do different things.
We use the following types of cookies:
Some cookies operate from the time you visit an Intel website to the end of that particular web-browsing session. These cookies expire and are automatically deleted when you close your internet browser. These cookies are called “session” cookies.
Some cookies will stay on your device between browsing sessions – they do not expire when you close your browser. These cookies are called “persistent” cookies. The length of time a persistent cookie stays on your device varies from cookie to cookie.
Cookies may be placed on your device by Intel as the website operator. These cookies are called “first party” cookies. Some cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than Intel. These cookies are called “third party” cookies. For example, an Intel partner may place a third party cookie to enable online chat services.
You can decide whether or not to accept cookies. One way you can do this is through your internet browser’s settings. Most internet browsers allow some control of most cookies through the browser settings. (Please note that if you use your browser settings to block all cookies you may not be able to access parts of our website.) The following websites provide information on how to adjust the cookies settings on some popular browsers:
You can also use a browser plug-in such as Ghostery* from Evidon Inc. or the Tracking Protection List from TRUSTe. (A browser plug-in is a piece of software which adds extra capabilities to your browser - for example, to play video or scan for viruses.)
Adobe Flash Player* is software for viewing multimedia on a computer. Websites which use Adobe Flash* may store flash cookies on user’s devices to remember settings, preferences, and usage similar to other types of cookies. Intel may use Flash to provide special content such as video clips or animation. You can access Flash management tools from Adobe’s website directly.

We sometimes use transparent electronic images called “clear GIFs”, “Web bugs” or “Web beacons”. This technology counts the number of users who visit a particular Intel webpage from specific banner advertisements outside the Intel website or who clicked on links or graphics included in email newsletters received from Intel. We do not use this technology to collect or access your personal information. Rather we use this technology as a tool to compile aggregated statistics about how Intel websites are used.
