Which Cookies We Use & Why
Cookies and similar tracking technologies store small data files on your browser when you visit websites and Apps. They are useful because they allow us to recognise your visit and improve your experience when you visit the Phillips website or App. The information does not usually identify you individually. It does, however, give you a more personalised experience.
