On this website we use cookies to anonymously identify the device you're using in order to improve your experience of the site.

A cookie is a small text file that is saved in your web browser. It allows our system to remember your device when you visit our website. No personal identifiable data is stored in cookies, only an anonymous id number.

Improving the website

We're constantly working to improve smt.sandvik.com. In order to do this, we use Google Analytics to analyze our visitors' behavior on an anonymous and aggregate level.

Anonymous data

The information about your use of this website is transmitted to Google anonymously. We will not seek to link your IP address with any personal identifiable information about you. In fact, the last digits in your IP address will be truncated before it's sent to Google.

Aggregate reports

The behavioral data collected is processed to compile statistical reports on website activity. The intent is not to look at the behavior of an individual user. Instead, aggregate statistics are reported, like "How many users have used the top navigation during the last week?"

Reports like this are then used to help us take decisions about website improvements.

Analytics Cookies

The analytics cookie is a first-party cookie, which means that it's set by smt.sandvik.com.
