Do Not Track
Some third-party sites do keep track of your browsing activities when they serve you content, which enables them to tailor what they present to you. Eaton does not do this on Eaton websites. If you are visiting such sites, some browsers allow you to set the DNT signal on your browser so that third parties (particularly advertisers) know you do not want to be tracked. Visit your browser settings to learn how to set these Do Not Track Signals.
Third parties that have content embedded on Eaton’s websites, such as a social feature or a stock ticker, may set cookies on a user’s browser and/or obtain information about the fact that a web browser visited a specific Eaton website from a certain IP address. Third parties cannot collect any other personally identifiable information from Eaton’s websites unless you provide it to them directly.
