Cookies Policy

 

1. Purpose

 

This cookie policy (“Cookie Policy”) applies to Intertape Polymer Group Inc., as well as its subsidiaries and affiliates (IPG or the IPG Group) as a whole. IPG is made up of different legal entities, details of which can be found here https://www.itape.com/en/about ipg. This policy is issued on behalf of the IPG Group so when we mention "IPG", "we" or "us" in this policy, we are referring to the relevant company in the IPG Group responsible for processing your personal information. Intertape Polymer Group Inc. is the controller and responsible for this Site and the cookies used.

Like most businesses, we employ “cookies” or similar technologies. This Cookie Policy tells you about the use of cookies and similar technologies on our websites, applications, and other online services to which this Cookie Policy is posted (collectively, our "Sites").

When you first access the Sites from certain jurisdictions, you will receive a message advising you of our cookie practices. By clicking “Accept” you signify that you understand and agree to the use of cookies as set forth in this Cookie Policy.

You do not have to accept cookies and consent can be withdrawn at any time (see How to Control Cookies, below). You can change your browser settings to refuse or restrict cookies, and you may delete them after they have been placed on your device at any time. If you do not accept or delete our cookies, some areas of the Sites that you access may take more time to work or may not function properly.

 

2. Cookies

 

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small files containing a string of characters that we may store on your computer or mobile device when you access the Sites. When you access the Sites again, the cookies allow us to recognize your browser. Cookies may store your preferences and other information but cannot read data off your hard disk or read cookie files created by other sites. Cookies set by a website owner (in this case, IPG) are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than the website owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies enable us to provide third party features or functionality through the Site (i.e. advertising, social media functions and analytics).
