Cookies & Similar Technologies

Effective Date: 11/10/2020

Minitab uses cookies (small, often encrypted, text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device) and similar technologies (“cookies”) to provide our Services and help collect data. This Cookies Policy explains how we use cookies to collect information about the way you use our Services, and how you can control them.

How We Use Cookies

We use cookies to track how you use our Services by providing usage statistics. Cookies are also used to deliver Company information (including updates) and allow Service authentication to you based upon your browsing history and previous visits to the Sites. Information supplied to us using cookies helps us to provide a better online experience to our visitors and users and send marketing communications to them, as the case may be. Information supplied to us upon launching of our Services will enable Minitab to manage your permissions, license, license type, and improve the functionality of the Service.

While this information on its own may not constitute your “Personal Data”, we may combine the information we collect via cookies with Personal Data that we have collected from you to learn more about how you use our Services to improve them.

Types of Cookies

We use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your device until you delete them). To make it easier for you to understand why we need them, the cookies we use with our Services can be grouped into the following categories:

  • Strictly Necessary: These cookies are necessary for the Services to work properly. They include any essential authentication and authorization cookies for our Services.
  • Functionality: These cookies enable technical performance and allow us to “remember” the choices you make while browsing our Sites, including any preferences you set. They also include sign-in and authentication cookies and IDs that enable you to return without additional sign-in.
  • Performance/Analytical: These cookies allow us to collect certain information about how you navigate the Sites or utilize the Services running on your device. They help us understand which areas you use and what we can do to improve them.
  • Targeting: These cookies are used to deliver relevant information related to our Services to an identified machine or other device (not a named or otherwise identifiable person) which has previously been used to visit our Sites. Some of these types of cookies on our Sites are operated by third parties with our permission and are used to identify advertising sources that are effectively driving customers to our sites.

Here is a representative list of the cookies we use.

We also may include web beacons in our promotional e-mail messages or newsletters to determine whether you open and act on them as well as for statistical purposes.

In addition to standard cookies and web beacons, our Services can also use other similar technologies to store and read data files on your computer. This is typically done to maintain your preferences or to improve speed and performance by storing certain files locally.
