We may record the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of your computer or other electronic device when you visit the Dover Motion Site. An IP address identifies the electronic device you use to access the Dover Motion Site. Your IP address allows us to maintain communication with your computer as you navigate the Dover Motion Site and to customize content. This information is also used to identify account-level data such as company name.
Cookies and other tracking technologies
We also collect information about your use of the Dover Motion Site through tracking technologies such as cookies. A “cookie” is a unique numeric code that is transferred to your computer to track your interests and preferences and to recognize you as a return visitor.
Some of our online advertising takes place through Google Display Advertising. As part of this program, we use Google Analytics features such as Retargeting. In connection with that feature and others offered by ad networks, we and the operators of ad networks, including Google, may use third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) – and in some cases first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) – to inform, optimize and serve ads across the Internet, based on a user’s past visits to the Dover Motion Site.
To learn more about cookies and other tracking technologies, including how to disable them, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. Please note that some cookies are essential to the functioning of our Site and deleting or disabling them will reduce the site’s functionality.
