Privacy notice on cookies
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognises that cookie. Cookies enable, for example, a website to remember your actions and preferences (for example, login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so that you do not have to keep re-entering them whenever you revisit a site or browse various pages.
Like most websites this size, Vertiv Group Corporation (“Vertiv”) will sometimes place cookies on your device to make our website work properly, improve your experience or track your navigation of the website, in order to send you promotional messages targeted to your preferences. We also allow third parties to place cookies on your device when you use the website.
Below is a summary of the different types of cookies we use and for what purposes.
(a) Technical cookies:
These cookies are essential to ensure the correct functioning of the website, to allow you to register/login and access reserved features, and to allow us to monitor the security of the website and improve operating performance, for example, by storing your preferences to enhance your subsequent visits.
Please be aware that if you refuse or disable these cookies, the proper functioning of some features and access to some parts of the website might be affected (for example, you might not be able to access features that require registration/login) and we might not be able to provide you with a better browsing experience.
(b) Analytics cookies:
These cookies allow us to collect and analyse traffic and use of the website on an anonymous basis and to understand and improve how visitors use the website, including which pages and products are viewed most frequently.

(c) Profiling cookies:
These cookies allow us to track your navigation of the website to create profiles of your tastes, habits, choices, etc., to send you promotional messages targeted to your preferences. Refusal of these cookies will not affect the proper functioning of the website but will prevent us from being able to send you promotional messages targeted to your preferences.
Some technical cookies are session cookies: they are stored temporarily during a browsing session and are automatically deleted from your device when the browser is closed. Other cookies are persistent cookies: they are not automatically deleted when the browser is closed but are saved on your device for a fixed period (for example, until the end of the year) or until you delete them.
