Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy applies to the following website(s): (the “Websites”)

This policy summarises the different types of cookies we use on the Websites, together with their respective purpose and duration (i.e. how long each cookie will remain on your device) and how to prevent and/or delete cookies.

When you view this Web Site, or any other hyperlinked Web Site, we may store some information on your local computer in the form of a “cookie”, which allows us to adjust our Web Site to better match your preferences. Cookies are also used to collect general usage and volume statistical information that does not include personal information.

Except for cookies necessary for the functioning of the Websites, we will place cookies only if you have allowed us to do so by pressing the “Agree” button in the Cookie Information on the top-page of our Website. Please note that if you do not allow us to place cookies or disable the cookies that we use, this may impact your user experience while on the Websites. If you want to change your settings at any time, you can return to the top-page of our Website and use the “allow” or “do not allow” buttons. You may also disable cookies by using your browser settings, please be referred to “How to prevent and/or delete cookies” below.

What are cookies?

Cookies are files or pieces of information that may be stored on your computer (or other internet enabled devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit a Website, such as a small text file, which the Web Site you are visiting saves on your local computer. A cookie will usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie originated, the “lifetime” of the cookie (i.e. how long it will remain on your device), and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.

Cookies are used by many Web Sites to give visitors access to a range of various functions. The information contained in the cookie can be used to monitor a user’s browsing behaviour.

What we use cookies for

The Websites use strictly necessary cookies which are essential to make the Websites work correctly and are strictly necessary in order to enable you to move around the Website and use its features.

The Websites also use “analytical” cookies. They allow us to optimize the performance of the Websites in order to enhance your website experience and to make the Websites easier to use and to better tailor the Websites to your interests and needs. The cookies also enable the user to remain logged in to e.g. the subscription service on the Websites. Further, the cookies help speed up your future activities and experience on the Websites by remembering user preferences such as language and font size and user agent properties, e.g. screen resolution and connection speed. We also use the cookies to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how people use the Websites and to help us improve their structure and content.

Read more about the individual cookies we use and how to recognise them in the table under “Cookies used on the Websites” below.

Cookies used on the Websites

There are three types of cookies:

  • persistent cookies,
  • session cookies and
  • third party cookies

  • Persistent cookies save a file for an extended period on your computer and are used, for example, with functions that describe what information is new since you last visited the particular Web Site.
  • Session cookies are stored temporarily in your computer’s memory while you are visiting the Web Site and browsing a page, and are used, for example, to determine what language you have chosen. Session cookies are not stored in your computer for an extended period, but are deleted when you close your browser.

Leica Geosystems uses both types of cookies for the following purposes: (i) to collect visitor statistics; (ii) to enable the user to remain logged in to e.g. the subscription service on our Web Site; (iii) to remember user preferences, e.g. language, font size, etc.; and (iv) to remember user agent properties, e.g. screen resolution, connection speed, etc.
