Essential cookies

What are essential cookies and can I reject them?

These cookies are essential for the website to function and cannot be switched off without affecting the use of the site. These cookies are usually only set in response to specific actions you take on the site, such as filling in forms or setting your cookie preferences. We use these cookies as we believe it is in both our and your legitimate interests to enable the site to function properly. You can set your browser to block or alert you to these cookies, but some parts of the website will not work without them. To learn how to set your browser to block or alert you to these cookies, see here: Internet Explorer > Google Chrome > Mozilla Firefox > Safari > Opera.

Why do we use essential cookies?

Typically, we use these cookies to fulfill a specific function on the website, for example, retaining search results where you use an internal search function so that if you click on search result links you can then return back to the retained search results.

What data do essential cookies collect and use?

Essential cookies seldom collect and use any personal data, though they may contain an ID code which allows the website to distinguish you as an individual visitor from all other visitors on the website at the same time. These types of unique ID code are used to maintain a server session to enable functions you have requested, such as using internal search.

How long do we retain this data?

Essential cookies are typically session cookies and only retain data for the duration of your visit to the website, but sometimes not, for example, we use the cookie to save your choices regarding cookie consent, then the data is stored for longer.

Analytic cookies

What are analytic cookies and can I reject them?

These cookies are non- essential cookies, which are also specifically known as “performance cookies”, “measurement cookies” or “statistical cookies”, allow us to count visits and visitor sources, so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. The data Huawei receives from these cookies is aggregated and anonymous, it is not personal data. However, the third parties providing these statistical services, Hypers Analytics do process personal data about you in order to provide us with aggregated data about our website visitors.

We use these cookies to understand how visitors interact with our website, for example, to see if users are abandoning certain pages or experiencing issues. We use these cookies as it is in our legitimate interests to monitor the performance of the website. You can reject analytics cookies at any time by changing your Cookie Settings.

Why do we use analytic cookies?

We use analytic cookies to enable measurement and analytics. These cookies enable us to, for example, understand:

- which websites people visit before landing on our website, for example, whether the visitor came directly to our website, or whether they clicked on a link from a search engine or a social media post

- which are the most and least popular pages on our website, how long visitors spend on each page and each part of the page, which links and buttons they click on

- information about the device you are using to access our site, for example, device brand and model, which browser or operating system you are using, and

- demographic information about visitors to our site, for example, statistics about what percentage of our web visitors are male or female, their age range, and their interests, for example, photography and technology.

What data do analytic cookies collect and use?

The cookies themselves will normally just record an ID code. However, this ID code links to Hypers Analytics servers, enabling Hypers to build a profile of how you browse the website. Browser details are also processed as a result of the cookie being read, including technical details of the device used to access the site as well as its location.

Huawei does not collect any personal data through statistical cookies. We only receive aggregated data about our website visitors in general. However, Hypers does process your personal data in order to provide these aggregated statistics to us. To learn more about how Hypers processes your personal data, please refer to Hypers Privacy Policy.

How long do we retain this data?

The retention period of analytic cookies varies from 24 hours to 24 months, depending on the purpose of the cookie. For example, some cookies only store information for 24 hours, to remember you as a unique visitor to the website on that day. Others may last as long as 24 months. For example, we might publish two versions of the same webpage to see which works better and is more popular, then a cookie will remember whether you visited version a or version b of the page, and ensure that you see the same version on subsequent return visits, so we obtain clear data results on the a/b testing.

Cross-Border Transfer

For details of how relevant Third-Parties use cookies, you may follow the links to their respective privacy policies, which are included in the above table. In this circumstance, Huawei will take measures to ensure that data is processed as required by the Privacy Policy and applicable laws.
