We can then develop statistics that help us understand how our visitors use our website in order to improve your experience with DuPont online.
DuPont uses both cookies and action tags to collect non-personal and aggregate information. Browser cookies are bits of text placed on your computer’s hard drive when you visit certain web sites.

DuPont uses third party contractors to help us manage our online advertising, serve our advertisements on agreed upon ‘publisher’ websites and measure user behavior. These contractors use both cookies and action tags to collect information from you, as permitted by applicable law. In addition, action tags (also known as web beacons, clear GIFs, & web tags) are placed upon designated pages of our website and publisher websites and are invisible to the user. The action tag allows our contractors to collect information such as IP address, the date/time the designated page was viewed, zip code, the URL of the website you are visiting when our ad is served to you and whether you view or click on the advertisement. Some of this information is shared with DuPont and DuPont may share information on user behavior with our contractors. None of the information collected or shared is personally identifiable.
