Nutanix Cookie Notice

Last updated April 29, 2024

Nutanix, Inc. and its group companies (collectively, “Nutanix”, “we”, and “our”) aim to make your experience and interaction with us as informative, personalized, and relevant as possible. To achieve this, we use cookies or similar technologies. This Cookie Notice provides information about how and when we use cookies and similar technologies when you use or access our web-based Offerings, and your rights regarding our use of Cookies. Capitalized terms used in this Cookie Notice have the meaning described in our Privacy Statement unless we provide a definition here in the Cookie Notice.

We may use cookies and similar technologies, such as pixel tags, widgets, web beacons, clear GIFs, JavaScript, embedded URLs, electronic protocols, and other tools (collectively “Cookies”), to collect personal information, or information that becomes personal information if we combine it with other information. In such cases, our Privacy Statement which includes additional information about the collection and use of personal data and information by Nutanix will apply. Where required by applicable law, Nutanix will obtain your consent before we place any Cookies on your device that are not strictly necessary for the functioning of our Offering.

What is a cookie?

A Cookie is a small snippet of code, pixels, or text files that is placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a website, online application, or other web-based environment. Almost every website uses Cookie technology as they help websites operate more efficiently, display custom content, personalize the end user experience, and provide for analytics. Cookies set by the website or application owner (in this case, Nutanix) are called "first party Cookies."  Only the website or application owner can access the first party Cookies it sets.  Cookies set by parties other than the owner are called "third party Cookies."  Third party Cookies enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the website, online applications, or other web-based environments (e.g. interactive content and social sharing).  The parties that set these third-party Cookies can recognize your device both when it visits the website in question and also when it visits other websites that have partnered with them.

Some Cookies are extremely useful because they can help us understand how you use our Offerings and personalize and improve your user experience when you use our Offerings.  You can find more detailed information about cookies and how they work at

Why do we use Cookies?

We use Cookies for many different purposes. When you access our Offerings for the first time and periodically thereafter, a pop-up banner will allow you to reject or tailor your Cookie preference settings.  These are the different types of Cookies we or our service providers may use in our Offerings:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies: These are first party Cookies which are necessary for technical or security reasons to make the Offerings operate and function properly. These are called “Strictly Necessary Cookies” since they are strictly necessary to provide you with the Offerings and specific services that you request.
  • Performance Cookies:  These Cookies help us analyze and understand how our Sites and Offerings are used, count the number of visitors, learn how the Sites and Offerings may be improved (such as page navigation), and enhance the performance of our Offerings. We think these Cookies will improve your experience; however, they are not essential to use our Offerings. As such, you may disable these Cookies but note that certain functionality of our Offerings (such as videos and other media content) may become unavailable, and we will not know when you have visited our Offerings or be able to monitor their performance.
  • Functional Cookies:  These Cookies enable us to provide enhanced functionality and personalization of the Offerings, and allow us to remember your choices or preferences, such as information on online forms or previous orders. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. They are not used to track your browsing activity on other websites. You may disable these, but keep in mind some or all of these Offerings may not function properly.      
  • Targeting (Advertising) Cookies: Targeted advertising Cookies may be set through our site by our advertising partners, service providers, social networking, and other websites. They may be used by those companies to build a profile of your interests and show you advertisements tailored to your interests, both on Nutanix Offerings and on other sites.   They also perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing and ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other personally identifying details unless you choose to provide these. If you disable these Cookies, you will still receive general advertisements, but they may be less relevant or interesting to you.

Cookies are not the only way to recognize or track visitors to a website, online application or other web-based environment.
