How Huawei Uses Cookies

This Cookie Policy explains how HUAWEI ("Huawei Cloud", "we", "our" and "us") uses Cookie and similar technologies in connection with https://www.huaweicloud.com/intl/en-us/ ("Website") and all products and services that contain or refer to this Cookie Policy (collectively “Services”).

Please see our Privacy Statement for details on how we process your personal data.

1.     What are Cookie?

Cookie are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. The content of a Cookie can be retrieved and read only by the server that created the Cookie. Cookie are unique to the browser or mobile application you are using. Cookie serve different purposes, like helping us understand how a site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences and generally improving your browsing experience.

We may use both session Cookie (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookie (which stay on your computer or mobile device for six months, or until you withdraw your consent or delete them, as applicable).

We use four broad categories of Cookie:

a)     Strictly necessary Cookie: For login and verification. When you use a HUAWEI ID to log in to a website, the session Cookie ensure that your visit to this site functions as smoothly as possible.

b)     Personalization Cookie: For storing your preferences and settings. We use Cookie to save settings, such as the language setting and font size on your computer or mobile device, items in your shopping cart, and other browser preferences.

c)     Statistical Cookie. We collect information about your use of the Services, either for a single visit (using a session cookie) or for repeated visits using a persistent cookie). These Cookie help us understand how the Services are performing and being used. We use Google Analytics for analyzing purposes. Regarding how your personal data is processed, please refer to its Privacy Policy. Google Analytics uses its own Cookie. You can find out more information about Google Analytics Cookie here. You can prevent the use of Google Analytics relating to your use of our Sites here.

d)     Advertising Cookie. These Cookie are used by advertising companies to collect information about how you use the Services over time. We use Google Ads, which shows you ads they believe will be relevant to you within the Services and elsewhere, and to measure how the ads perform. You can find out more information about Google Ads and how it processes your data here. You can also control the use of Google Ads here.

Many of the Services require Cookie to operate. If you choose not to allow Cookie related to these Services you may not be able to use those Services or certain features of the Services.

2.     Other similar technologies

In addition to Cookie, we may use other technologies, such as Flash technology and pixel tags to collect information automatically.

Browser Web Storage

We may use browser web storage (including via HTML5), also known as locally stored objects (“LSOs”), for similar purposes as Cookie. Browser web storage enables the storage of a larger amount of data than Cookie. Your web browser may provide functionality to clear your browser web storage.

Mobile Application Software Development Kits (SDKs)

We may use third-party software development kits (“SDKs”) in our applications. A SDK is third-party computer code that may be used for a variety of purposes, including to provide us with analytics regarding the use of our applications, to integrate with social media, add features or functionality to our app, or to facilitate online advertising. SDKs may enable third parties to collect information directly via our applications.

3.     Do Not Track

Many web browsers provide a Do Not Track function that can release Do Not Track requests to websites. Currently, major Internet standardization organizations have not established policies to specify how websites should handle these requests.

If you enable Do Not Track or other similar functions your browser may provide, Huawei will not change the way we collect and use your data as described in this Statement. However, we reserve the right to respond to your Do Not Track request and stop the collection of your data without prior notice to you.

4.     Your Choices

Most browsers let you remove or reject Cookie. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser settings. Many browsers accept Cookie by default until you change your settings.

If you do not accept our Cookie, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of the Website. For example, we may not be able to recognize your computer or mobile device and you may need to log in every time you visit the Website.
