Pilot Chemical Website Cookie Policy

This Cookie Policy explains how cookies and similar technologies (collectively, “Cookie(s)”) are used when you visit our Site. A “Site” includes our websites owned and operated by the Pilot Chemical Company (“Pilot”, “us”, “we”, or “our”). This Policy explains what these technologies are and why they are used, as well as your right to control their use.

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on a user’s computer for record-keeping purposes.

What Information Do We Obtain Through Cookies?

Cookies help us to improve the Site by tracking users’ navigation habits and storing users’ passwords, customizing users’ experiences with the Site; enabling us to analyze technical and navigational information about the Site; and helping to detect and prevent fraud.

We also use other data collection tools (such as web beacons and server logs) which we collectively refer to as “Data Collection Tools”, to help improve your experience with the Site. The Site may also use Data Collection Tools to collect information from the device used to access the Site, such as operating system type, browser type, domain and other system settings, as well as the operating system used and the country and time zone in which the computer device is located.

To the extent any personal information is collected through first-party Cookies, our Pilot Chemical Website Privacy Policy (the “Privacy Policy”) applies and complements this Cookie Policy. Personal information collected through a third-party cookie is subject to the privacy policy of that third party, and not our Privacy Policy.

What Cookies Do We Use?

Below we list the different types of Cookies we may use on the Site.
