Cookie Use Notice


Accuray websites (“Sites”), as defined below, use Cookies to ensure we provide our visitors (including customers, vendors, job applicants and employees) the best possible site navigation experience. You can find out more about Cookies, how we use them, and how to manage your preferences below.

This Notice applies to Cookies used by Accuray, our partners, and our other third parties (such as pixel tags, web beacons, JavaScript, and local storage). This Notice also covers Cookies that may be used by web sites (including mobile web sites and apps) owned and/or controlled by Accuray (the “Sites”).

In some cases, we may use Cookies to collect information that is personally identifiable, or that can become personally identifiable if we combine it with other information. In such cases, the most current Accuray Website Privacy Policy will apply in addition to this Accuray Cookie Use Notice.

What are Cookies and what information do they collect about me?

Cookies are small files—usually consisting of letters and numbers—placed on your computer, tablet, phone, or similar device, when you use that device to visit a web site. Cookies are widely used by web site owners to make their web sites operate efficiently and effectively.

Below is a description of some of the types of Cookies we and our service providers may use on our Sites and the purposes for which they are used.

  • Essential Cookies. These Cookies are required for the operation of our Web Site (for example, to enable you to log into secure areas of our web site). These Cookies enable you to move around the Sites and use their features. Disabling these Cookies will hinder the Sites’ performance and may make some features and services unavailable.
  • Functional Cookies. These Cookies enable the functionality of the Sites, including third-party functions. For example, these Cookies are used to recognize you when you return to our Sites, greet you by name, and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region). Third-party functional Cookies that may be contained on the Sites such as YouTube allow Accuray to show videos of Company products. These functional Cookies have their own identifiers.
  • Advertising Cookies. These Cookies record your online activities, including your visits to our Sites, the pages you have visited, and the links and advertisements you have visited. This information allows our service providers to deliver advertisements or other communications that are more relevant to you. This may also involve partners such as publishers, data management platforms, and demand side platforms that help to manage the data.

How Long do Cookies Stay on My Device?

Some Cookies operate from the time you visit the Sites to the end of that particular web browsing session. These Cookies expire and are automatically deleted when you close your Internet browser. These Cookies are called “session” Cookies.

Some Cookies will stay on your device between browsing sessions—they do not expire when you close your browser. These Cookies are called “persistent” Cookies. The length of time a persistent Cookie stays on your device varies from Cookie to Cookie. We and others use persistent Cookies for a variety of purposes, such as to store your preferences so that they are available for the next visit.

Who Puts the Cookies on My Device?

Cookies may be placed on your device by Accuray as the Site operator. These Cookies are called “first party” Cookies. Some Cookies may be placed on your device by a party other than Accuray. These Cookies are called “third party” Cookies. For example, an Accuray partner may place a third-party Cookie on the Sites to enable online chat services.

How do I Manage Cookies?

You may manage your Cookie Preferences by changing your browser settings so that cookies from this website cannot be placed on your computer or mobile device. After accepting or declining cookies, you can, at your convenience, disable or reactivate cookies on the browser of your device.
