This cookies policy describes the way in which any website (Website”) operated by Materion stores or accesses information on the device or computer that you use in order to access the Website via the use of cookies or similar technologies. The Materion Cookie Policy should be read in conjunction with the Materion Privacy Statement governing use of our website.

WHAT ARE COOKIES?

Cookies are small files that are sent to and stored in your computer by the websites you visit. Cookies are stored in your browser’s file directory and work in combination with content within the Website itself to capture and remember information. Cookies may be stored only for the time you are in a given site, called a session cookie, or they may remain stored in your browser for a defined period of time beyond your current session, known as a persistent cookie. Cookies can be set by the owner of a website itself (“first party cookies”) or by other websites that provide content (such as advertising) for the website that you are viewing ("third party cookies"). To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

UNDERSTANDING WHY MATERION USES COOKIES.

Materion uses session and persistent cookies on our Website to distinguish you from other users of our website. This improves your overall experience when using our Website and ensures site functionality and performance. Our Website will also use cookies (both first party and third party cookies) to enable us, and occasionally network advertisers, to target advertising or marketing based, for example, on your location or browsing habits on our Website and on other websites.

HOW DOES MATERION USE COOKIES?

Cookies make navigating our Website easier by saving your browsing preferences. We use cookies to understand our customer’s usage of Materion’s Website and other customer preferences (such as country and language choices). We also use cookies to provide us with aggregate data about Website traffic and Website interaction, to identify trends, and obtain statistics so that we can offer better Website experiences and tools in the future. Cookies on Materion’s Website fall into four main categories:

  • Strictly Necessary: These cookies are required for running our Website. They allow our web servers to respond to your actions on the Website and whilst browsing it. The Website will not work for you without these cookies.
  • Analytical: These cookies allow us to see how visitors move around the Website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way the Website works, for example, by ensuring that users are able to find what they are looking for easily, and also to analyze the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns. For example, we do analytical profiling to understand unique users reading a particular article or viewing a particular product to identify what is popular.
  • Functionality/Personalization: These cookies are used to recognize you when you return to the Website in order to remember your preferences, and also allow us to provide certain aspects of the Website's functionality. For example, these cookies help make the content as personalized as possible.
  • Targeting/Advertising: These cookies record your visit to our Website, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our Website and the advertising displayed on it, as well as advertising on third party sites, more relevant to your interests. We may share this information with third parties for this purpose. De-selecting these cookies may result in seeing advertising that is not as relevant to you.

Some of the cookies we use for the above purposes come from third parties that Materion does business with in order to enable analytics, advertising, functionality, feedback, and ease-of-use. These third parties include Google, Sitecore, Hotjar and various advertising networks. We do not control these cookies.
