WHAT ARE COOKIES?
A session cookie is deleted when you close the relevant website. A session cookie may allow a website to remember you while you are browsing the site but the cookie will be removed when you log out or close the webpage or your internet browser. For example, a session cookie may be used to allow features such as shopping carts to remember if you have added an item to your cart while you browse for other items you wish to purchase on the website.
A persistent cookie remembers you for a particular time period. It remains stored on your device or internet browser for that time (it could be minutes, days or months) after you have logged out or closed your browser. For example, persistent cookies may be used to remember if you have selected certain preferences on a website (e.g. your language selection).
The Medtronic eManuals Libraries use both session and persistent cookies. Cookies and other similar technologies are used by Medtronic for several different reasons.

Cookies allow us to count the visitors to our website and learn how they use our website and its features, enabling us to continually improve the experience.
