The GE Healthcare site uses two types of cookies. "Cookies" are small data files, typically made up of a string of text and numbers, which assign you a unique identifier. A "client cookie" is sent to your browser so that our systems remember your requests and keep track of the pages you view on our site and which services you use. A "server cookie" is maintained on our systems to recognize you when you return to the site. This information allows us to better administer the site and provide a more tailored and user-friendly service to you. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to prevent cookies from being sent; if so, you may limit the functionality we can provide you when you visit our site.
In addition, GE Healthcare works with third parties to serve advertisements on our sites. These ads may contain cookies which are maintained or tracked by the ad server or advertiser. GE Healthcare does not control or have access to the advertiser cookies.
