Acuity Brands knows that you are concerned about your privacy. This Cookie Disclosure is designed to help you understand what Acuity Brands and its affiliates do with cookies. For a broader understanding of how Acuity protects your privacy generally, please review our Privacy Policy at www.acuitybrands.com/privacy-policy.


What Cookies Are

A cookie is a small file stored on your computer or mobile device that allow us to separate you from the millions of other people on the Internet. The cookie allows us to "remember" your actions or preferences over time. However, a cookie does not contain information about you as a person; for example, a cookie may identify your computer’s IP address as having visited www.acuitybrands.com last Tuesday at 11:24 a.m., but it cannot alone identify you as Bob Smith. Of course, if you independently provide us with other information such as your name and IP address, we may be able to associate the information in a cookie with that other information and thereby identify you.

  • measure the performance of our advertising or other outreach campaigns,
  • understand how people use our websites and products.

We Coordinate Our Cookie Use With Third Parties

Acuity shares the information we gain from our use of cookies with certain third-parties and accepts information those third-parties have gained via their use of cookies. We do this to coordinate our advertising and other analytics programs with those third-parties. These third parties may use cookies [alone or in conjunction with other tracking technologies] to collect information about your when you use our website.
