Privacy and cookie policy

Sectra recognizes and respects the importance of privacy for visitors to our websites. This policy provides an account of the cookies used on our websites and the personal data we collect.

Although Sectra does not automatically receive and store information from your web browser, such as IP address, cookie information and the pages you visit, Sectra may collect such personal data as your name, email address and other information that you voluntarily provide when filling out our forms or accepting cookies. You can control how we use cookies on your device by changing those settings at any time here.


A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer and used to recognize your computer upon return. The cookie may transmit information via your browser for the purpose of authenticating or identifying the computer (via the IP address, for example) or the user. Cookies may contain information such as registration data and user preferences. When a server receives a request from a computer that has stored a cookie from a website, the server can use the information stored in the cookie in combination with the information stored on the server. A cookie cannot collect information from your computer, nor can it contain viruses or other damaging files. There are similar methods for collecting data, such as LocalStorage and SessionStorage. These terms are used synonymously in this text.

Cookies come in two types: persistent cookies and session cookies. Sectra’s website uses both types of cookies. A persistent cookie remains on a computer for a specified length of time, whereas a session cookie is stored temporarily in the computer’s memory for the duration of a site visit and disappears when you close the browser.

You may delete cookies if you no longer wish to store them on your computer. Please refer to your browser’s help guide for further guidance. You can also easily control how we use cookies on your device by changing those settings at any time here.
