What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that are sent to your browser and stored on your device. They can be used to store certain types of information.
Our website, like many others, stores and retrieves information on your browser using cookies. This information is used to make the site work as you expect it to and it can be used to give you a more personalised web experience. The information in these cookies is solely linked to your computer (via your IP address) and your visit to UMC’s website and logged in services. Some of these cookies are saved long term on your computer (often referred to as persistent cookies). Others are temporarily saved in your computer’s memory and disappear when you close your browser (often referred to as session cookies).
UMC also uses third-party cookies from trusted providers (see below), including analysis of usage that underlies our future product development.
Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the site may not work then.
These cookies allow us to count visits and track traffic 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. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our site.
