Information about cookies

Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas, Inc. (“Trelleborg Wheel Systems Americas, Inc.” or “we”) uses cookies on our websites to improve our service for you. Some of the cookies we use are essential for certain services to work; others are used to collect information on the use of the website (statistics) so that we can make the site more convenient and useful for you. Some cookies are temporary and will disappear when you close your browser; others are persistent and will remain on your computer for some time. We also use some local cookies that are tied to local campaigns and which will disappear when the campaign ends.

Our use of cookies is always subject to our general Privacy notice, which can also be found on this site.

What is a Cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that a website transfers to your hard disk or web browser to track the site usage, both when using a computer, smart phone or other device. Cookies are used on many websites to provide visitors access to different functions. The information in a cookie makes it possible to follow how you are using the website, remember your preferences and may adapt the content to be more relevant to your perceived interests.

The Cookie settings on this website:

Cookies that do not require approval.

Cookies that are essential, also known as ‘strictly necessary’ cookies, enable features without which you would not be able to use the website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by this website and are therefore known as first-party cookies. They are only saved on your computer while you are actually browsing the website. An example of why strictly necessary cookies are used is to ensure that what you see on screen corresponds to the data volume which your current Internet connection can handle. Another example of what these cookies do is facilitate a switch from http to https when you change pages, so that the security of data transmitted is maintained. Furthermore, a cookie of this kind is used to store your decision about the use of cookies on our website. This type of cookie may be used, for example, to keep track of the chosen language. These cookies are not stored on your hard disk for an extended period and will disappear when you close your browser. Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies.

The other type of first-party cookie saves a file on your computer for an extended period of time and its purpose is to facilitate the activities of an individual person, for example, when using a functionality that requires a login, during registration or when ordering material. Cookies are used to measure the number of page views and visitors for internal and external statistics. Statistical information is anonymous and does not contain any names, e-mail addresses or any other information that can be connected to one individual.

This website uses both types of cookies to make it easier for you to access the information on the site. Unless specifically stated elsewhere (e.g. in our Privacy notice), cookies are never used by us for the purpose of gathering personal data.

First-party Cookies that require consent

Cookies which, in strictly legal terms, are not absolutely essential in order to use this website, do nevertheless fulfill important functions. Without these cookies, features that could enable our website to be used easily, such as pre-completed forms, would not be available. Settings you make, such as language choices, would not be saved, so you would be asked about them every time you change pages.

Third-party cookies that require consent

We use third-party cookies to collect statistics in aggregate form in analysis tools such as Google Analytics (additional information on Google Analytics can be found at our Privacy notice). The cookies used are both permanent and temporary cookies (session cookies). The permanent cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device for no longer than six months. Learn more about Google Analytics cookies here.

How do I prevent cookies from being placed?

Most web-browser automatically accept cookies. You can prevent cookies from being stored on your computer or device by setting your browser to not accept cookies. Some browsers have a special mode that deletes cookies directly after your visit. Internet explorer 8 or newer calls this function “in private- brows”; Google Chrome Version 10 calls it “Inkognito”, Firefox 3.5 calls it “private mode”; Safari Version 10 calls it “private surfing” and Opera 10.5 calls it “private tab”.

You can find instructions on how to change your cookie settings in the “help” area of your browser. You can delete cookies already stored on your computer or device at any time. Furthermore you can object to the collection and transfer of personal data or prevent the use of your data by deactivating java-script in your browser or installing a tool to prevent it. If you do not wish that we collect and analyze data about your visit through the use of cookies you can object for the future at any time (Opt-Out).

An opt-out-cookie in your internet browser is needed to implement the objection technically. This cookie only serves the purpose of assigning your objection. Please note that the opt-out cookie is only valid for the internet browser in which it was placed. This means that if you delete cookies or use a different internet browser you have to opt-out again. If you decide not accept cookies in general you can naturally still visit and use our website but we cannot guarantee an optimal browsing experience. Additionally some content may not be available and the use may be limited.
