What are cookies?

A cookie is a small file containing a string of characters that is sent to your computer when you visit a website. When you visit the site again, the cookie allows that site to recognize your browser. Cookies may store user preferences and other information.

Cookies provide a convenience feature to save you time or tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page.

Cookies set by the website owner (in this case, HDVI) are called “first party cookies.” Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies.”

Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website (e.g. advertising, interactive content and analytics). The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits certain other websites.

Do we use cookies and similar technologies?

Cookies and similar technologies play an important role in helping us provide personal, effective and safe interactions. We use cookies on our website and share those cookies with partners and third parties, like Google Analytics (you may visit here to learn more about how Google uses this information). We may change the cookies and similar technologies periodically as we improve or add to our systems and infrastructure, but we generally use cookies and similar technologies for the following purposes:

To Operate Our Systems and Infrastructure (e.g., our website). Some cookies and similar technologies are essential to the operation of our systems and infrastructure (e.g., our website). We may use those cookies and similar technologies in a number of different ways, including for example:

Authentication. We use cookies and similar technologies to remember your login state, so you don’t have to login as you navigate throughout our systems and infrastructure.

Fraud Prevention and Detection. Cookies and similar technologies that we deploy throughout our systems and infrastructure help us learn things about the computers and web browsers used to access them. This information helps us monitor for and detect potentially harmful or illegal use or behavior.

Preferences. We use cookies and similar technologies to remember how you prefer to use our systems and infrastructure, so that you don’t have to reconfigure your settings each time.

To Analyze and Improve Our Website, Products and Services. Cookies and similar technologies help us understand how to make our website, products and services work better for you. Cookies and similar technologies tell us how people reach our website and they give us insights into improvements or enhancements we need to make to our website, products and services. For example, we use cookies to identify popular sections of our website, to recognize how frequently you have visited the website, to remember your preferences on our website, and to improve the security of our website.

For Better Advertising. Cookies and similar technologies can help us provide more effective advertising, whether on our website or elsewhere. For example, we might use a cookie to help prevent you from seeing the same advertisement multiple times or to measure how many times an advertisement is viewed or clicked on.

First party and third party cookies

Our website may place first party cookies and allow third parties to place cookies on your device.

First party cookies are cookies that are specific to the website that created them. Our use of first party cookies enables us to operate an efficient service and to track the patterns of behavior of visitors. Third party cookies, on the other hand, are placed on your device by a third party (i.e., not by us). While we may allow third parties to access the Services to place these cookies on users’ devices, we do not retain control over the information supplied by the cookies.
