How to control cookies

Enabling cookies is not strictly necessary for the website to work but it will provide you with a better browsing experience and allow us and our third party partners to ensure that content we display, advertisements you see online, and marketing messages are more relevant to you and your interests. You can delete or block these Cookies, but if you do this, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit our website and some features of the site may not work as intended.

The following are examples of how you can manage or delete many of the cookies served through our sites:

Cookie opt-out links You may manage or opt-out of certain uses of many cookies served through our sites by using the links provided above.
Industry opt-out sites You may also opt-out of certain use of many cookies served for advertising purposes by many of HTC’s third party advertising partners by visiting either:

Browser settings Many web browsers accept cookies by default. If you prefer, you can usually change your browser's settings to reject and/or to remove many cookies. If you use different devices to view and access our website (e.g. your computer, smartphone, tablet etc) you will need to ensure that each browser on each device is adjusted to suit your Cookie preferences.

E-mail tracking

We may also use cookies or similar e-mail tracking technologies to monitor the success of e-mail campaigns we operate (for example, recording how many e-mails in a campaign were opened, the IP address, browser or email client types which the emails were read). If you do not want us to track emails we send you, some email services let you change your display to turn off HTML or disable download of images and exercising these rights should effectively disable our email tracking. In addition, you may also unsubscribe from our marketing emails as described in those emails.

Do Not Track

Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals. Since uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not been adopted, HTC does not currently process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals. To learn more about “Do Not Track,” please visit "All About Do Not Track".

In addition to “Do Not Track,” there are many ways that web browser signals and similar mechanisms can indicate your tracking choices, and we may not be aware of nor honor every mechanism.
