Do Not Track (DNT)
We may not recognize or take action in response to Do-Not-Track (“DNT”) signals from web browsers. This is because there is not yet a universally accepted standard on how to interpret and respond to DNT signals, which can and often do conflict with other settings, for example for cookies and scripts. If and when a standard is established, we will revisit this topic to determine how we can appropriately respond to DNT signals.
Cookies and similar ad technologies such as beacons and tags help us serve relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us to understand and improve our products, technologies and services, and to know when content has been shown to you. As your web browser may request advertisements and beacons directly from third party ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or set third party cookies, just as if you had requested a web page from their website. Ads served by us may also set third party cookies. For more information on third party cookies, see the ‘Third Party Cookies’ section above.
If you are logged in on Xilinx.com and one of our cookies on your device identifies you, we will associate your usage (e.g. your browsing behavior) and log data (e.g. your IP address) with your account. If you have a Xilinx account but are logged out of your account on a browser, we may still continue to log your interaction with our services on that browser in order to generate usage analytics.
Unless you clear these cookies from your browser, we may use this information to:
- provide more relevant, interest-based advertising
- improve our products, technologies and services
- provide aggregate reports of ads activity to advertisers and websites hosting the ads
- detect and defend against fraud and other risks
For further information on the controls available to you in terms of managing cookies, please see the “Managing Cookies” section below.
Most browsers allow you to choose whether you wish to accept cookies or not. Different browsers make different controls available to you and so we provide links below to popular manufacturers' instructions on how you can do this. Generally, your browser will offer you the choice to accept, refuse or delete cookies at all times, or those from providers that website owners use ("third party cookies"), or those from specific websites. However, if you restrict our capability to set cookies, you may degrade your overall user experience when visiting the Xilinx.com website and other Xilinx properties, and you will make some of our services and features off bounds. You may be unable to sign into the Xilinx.com website if you have blocked us from setting cookies on your browser.
