Cookies Information

DNOW L.P. and its affiliates, parent and subsidiaries (‘DNOW’ ‘we’ ‘our’ ‘us’) are committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This website is operated by DNOW L.P. This section is our Cookie Notice; it tells you why we use cookies, the cookies we use and how you can manage the cookies stored on your devices. For further information on how we process your personal data and on your rights, please read our Website Privacy Notice (https://www.dnow.com/privacy-notice/).

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small removable data file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded on to a computer, smartphone or other device when the user accesses certain websites. Software on

the user’s device (for example, a web browser) can store cookies and send them back to the website next time the user visits. This can allow a website to ‘remember’ a user or their device. A cookie cannot read data off your hard drive or read cookie files created by another website.

A web beacon is a clear picture file used to keep track of a user’s navigation through a website or series of websites. Web beacons can be used in conjunction with cookies to understand how a user navigates and processes content on a website.

Why do we use cookies?

Cookies and similar technologies such as web beacons (all referred to as ‘cookies’) are used for a variety of reasons, from making a website function more efficiently, to recognising a user’s device and tailoring that user’s experience to fit prior preferences. Cookies can also provide the owners of a site with valuable information about how that site is being used.

Cookies often consist of a string of numbers and letters that uniquely identify your computer, but they can contain other information as well, such as anonymized Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, browser type and language, Internet Service Provider (ISP), referring and exit websites, operating systems, date/time stamp and clickstream data from our YouTube videos.

In some of our email messages, we may use a “click-through URL” linked to content on the DistributionNOW website. When customers click one of these URLs, they pass through a separate web server before arriving at the destination page of our website. We track the click-through data to help us determine interest in particular topics and measure the effectiveness of our customer communications. If you prefer not to receive these communications, we do provide an unsubscribe link on all email communications so that you can manage your subscription.

What cookies do we use?

The type of cookies we use are session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are temporary files which last only as long as your browsing session and are erased once you close your browser. Persistent cookies are files that stay in your browser’s subfolders after you close your browser. These are stored on your device for longer periods of time, subject to your browser settings.

Please review the table below for more detailed information on the specific cookies we use.

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics works using cookies. Google Analytics cookies collect your IP address; however, because IP anonymization is used on this website, your IP address will be shortened (and therefore anonymized) as soon as technically possible and before it is stored or otherwise used in connection with Google Analytics. The anonymization process takes place within the European Union or the European Economic Area, except in exceptional cases, where your full IP address may be sent to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. We use the information collected by Google Analytics cookies to find out about how visitors use our website. Google will not combine the IP address sent by your

browser in connection with Google Analytics with other data. You can prevent Google Analytics cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly.

To opt out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all website, visit http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
