Status: May 2018

This Cookie Policy applies to the present website operated by the Siemens Gamesa company referred to under Corporate Information.

Some of the information is automatically collected and will not personally identify you but instead track your use of the websites. This may include your device’s unique identifying code or its IP address as well as statistics about how you use the websites. When you visit Siemens Gamesa websites, information is stored on your terminal device in the form of a "cookie." Cookies are small files that are stored on your terminal device and save certain settings and data to exchange with our websites via your browser.

For each visitor to the websites, our server automatically recognizes and stores the visitor's IP address. In addition, our websites uses cookies. To enhance your experience when using our websites, these cookies may automatically collect information from you such as your area code, region and sign in username.

For example, cookies enable us to tailor a website to better match your interests or to store your password so that you do not have to re-enter it every time. As a general rule, we never collect personal data via cookies, unless you have given us your express permission to do so.

If you do not want us to recognize your terminal device, please configure your Internet browser to erase all cookies from your device, to block all cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored. You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – read about it here: www.aboutcookies.org.

Types of cookies

Cookies can be assigned to four categories, depending on their function and intended purpose: absolutely necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, and cookies for marketing purposes.

Absolutely necessary cookies: are needed for you to navigate within Siemens Gamesa websites and operate basic website functions, such as the issuance of anonymous Session IDs for bundling several related queries to a server.

Performance cookies: collect information on the usage of our websites, including for example the Internet browsers and operating systems used, the domain name of the website which you previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, and pages called up.

These cookies do not store any information that would make it possible to personally identify the user. The information collected with the aid of these cookies is aggregated and is therefore anonymous. Performance cookies serve the purpose of improving the user friendliness of a website and therefore enhancing the user’s experience. You can block the use of such cookies by creating an exclusion cookie (see “managing cookies” below).

Functional cookies: enable a website to store information the user has already entered (such as user ID, language selection, or the user’s location), in order to offer improved, personalized functions to the user. Functional cookies are also used to enable requested functions such as playing videos and to make a user’s decision to block or disable a certain function (e.g. web analysis) persistent (“opt-out cookies”).

Managing cookies: please note that not all of the cookies mentioned below will necessarily be used when you browse our website using a mobile terminal device

For this purpose, Adobe Analytics anonymously stores and analyzes various kinds of data, including the visited website and the website’s metadata, websites that link to Siemens Gamesa, the time of the visit, and the browser used.
