A “cookie” is a small text file that our Websites save onto your computer or device when you use the Websites that enables the Websites to remember your actions and preferences and recognize you or your browser.
We also use other technologies similar to cookies that store information on a user’s device, such as pixel tags. A pixel tag is a small graphic image placed on the web page designed to allow us to monitor and obtain information about the traffic on your Websites, such as the IP address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears, the URL of the page, the time the page was viewed, the type of browser used to view the page, and the information in cookies set by vendors we use to assist us with advertising to you. We also use pixel tags to recognize a unique cookie on your web browser, which enables us to learn which advertisements brought you to our Websites.
We refer to all of these technologies as “cookies” in this policy.
Cookies may either be “first-party” or “third-party.” First-party cookies are set by Badger Meter on its own Websites. Third-party cookies are set by a third-party or service provider on Badger Meter's Websites. We are not responsible for third-party cookies. A first-party Cookie allows your web browser to talk to the actual website that you are visiting. A third-party Cookie allows your web browser to talk to a third-party provider providing services or features on the website you are visiting.
Generally, the type of information we collect through cookies is specific to your computer or other device and includes the IP address, date and time the device accessed our Websites, what parts of our Websites were visited, your internet services provider, the device ID number, approximate geographic location, browser type, the websites you visit before and after coming to our Websites, and whether the web pages requested were delivered successfully.
The Websites use session cookies and persistent cookies:
We use the following categories of cookies on our Websites. Please note, we provide more information about certain categories in the sections below.
We use Google Analytics and other analytics software from third-party service providers on our Websites to collect information about the usage of our Websites. These vendors use this information to provide us with reports and insights that we can use to better understand and measure how users interact with our Websites, predict patterns and future behavior based on users' past use of the Websites and other websites, and improve our advertising.
For example, we use Google Analytics, in conjunction with Google Tag Manager, to better understand how our Websites are used. Google will place cookies on your computer or mobile device that will generate information that we select about your use of the Websites, including your computers or mobile device’s IP address. Google then provides us with reports and insights that we can use to better understand and measure how users interact with our Websites, predict patterns and future behavior based on users' past use of the Websites and other websites, and improve our advertising. You can opt out and find further information about Google by visiting: https://policies.google.com/privacy.

This means that when you are on another website, you may be shown advertising based on your browsing patterns on our Websites. The advertising techniques we use do not collect personal data such as your name, email address, postal address or phone number. We use third-party advertising cookies including:
