Our website uses a number of cookies, not many and nothing overly intrusive, but still we are obliged to inform our visitors about some of the cookies that Core Lab uses. Some of these cookies, mostly tracking cookies, require your consent. By using our website, you consent to the use and storage of tracking cookies on your device. However, you can also choose to view our website without cookies. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can prevent cookies from being saved on your end device by setting your browser to not accept cookies. You can delete cookies stored on your end device at any time. Below we explain what are cookies, which cookies we use and why.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that record and store in your computer the details of your activity when visiting a website. Cookies help to analyse web traffic and allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences. Certain cookies may contain personal data, for example, if you click “remember me” when logging in, a cookie may store your username.
What cookies does Core Lab use?
The purpose of the cookies on our website is solely to make your visit as pleasant as possible and to provide Core Lab information about how our website is being used so that we can optimize it for any visitors such as yourself. Core Lab does not sell any advertising space, so you will not find any cookies from advertisers.
We categorize cookies as follows:
Functional cookies (type 1)
hese cookies are essential for websites and for their features to work properly. Without these cookies certain services may be disabled. These cookies also improve ease of use. For example, they remember selections or remove the need to log in every time. Consent is not needed for these cookies.
Analytical cookies (type 2)
These cookies collect information about how you use the website and enable us to map visitor and search behaviour and to adjust our services in accordance with the findings. This allows us to further improve our services to you as a visitor. We use analytical cookies such as Google Analytics in a privacy-friendly manner. Consent is also not needed for privacy-friendly analytical cookies.
Tracking cookies (type 3)
These cookies are also not very intrusive. They mainly track such matters as to see if a user has clicked on forward looking statements. Other examples of tracking cookies are cookies for integration of social media content on our site. However, before we can place such cookies, ePrivacy legislation requires us to obtain your consent. You are free to not give your consent and can still visit our website, but with a less customised experience.
As well as cookies, there are also third-party requests. These are not cookies, so nothing ends up on your computer. Nonetheless, you send information by means of a kind of digital fingerprint. Every computer has its own unique configuration and you automatically leave this information – about your operating system or browser, for example – when you visit a website.
