Persistent Cookies

Persistent cookies are text files that are stored on your computer or mobile device in between browser sessions. Mostly, these cookies are used to remember your preferences, to personalize your experience, and to remember information that you provided so that you do not have to re-enter this information every time you visit with us. For example, if you choose a language option, we will remember that choice. The next time you visit our website, the screens will display in your chosen language. If you choose to view 40 display items on a screen, we will remember that choice for the next time that you visit. Many times we provide the option of saving information so that you do not need to provide us with the same information over and over again.

Persistent cookies remain on your computer or mobile device for longer than a browsing session and have varying expiration dates, upon which, the cookie is deleted. Only the TE.com domain that has created the cookie can access the information stored in it.

Third Party Cookies

A First Party cookie is a cookie created by the TE.com domain. A Third Party cookie is a cookie that is set by another domain while you are browsing our website. We sometimes partner with other companies to provide functionality, such as a plugin allowing you to share information with your social networks, or to supply a service for our website. Our partners’ products may exist outside of the TE.com domain and their products may use cookies to function properly. These Third Party cookies will contain the information needed to execute the functionality or to supply the service for which we engaged the partner. 


If you block Third Party cookies, see here for AddThis, most of our website will work without a problem. However, we do not recommend blocking these cookies as some functionality and services will not work correctly without them.
