Introduction

Thank you for your interest in how Milliman Inc. and its affiliates (hereinafter “Milliman” or “we”) use cookies on our sites.

We have provided this Cookie Policy to provide you with transparency so you can make informed choices about how Milliman and third parties track your personal data utilizing cookies. This Cookie Policy explains how your personal data is collected, shared, and analyzed by our third-party vendor service providers to improve the performance and user satisfaction of our sites, to help those sites function properly for your use and convenience, and to enable Milliman to analyze the statistical use of our sites.

For some of our sites, we may post a Cookie Policy that is site-specific. We do this in order to best describe the use of cookies for sites that are administered by our third-party vendor service providers on these sites. Additionally, where the laws of the country require different legal disclosures to a consumer regarding cookies, we may post a site-specific version to comply with applicable law. By posting a separate and site-specific policy on these selected sites, we are able to provide transparency to you, describing in detail how the use of cookies is configured in a way that is different from how Milliman typically manages cookies on its sites, in accordance with local laws or as explained in this Cookie Policy.

Visiting our sites

This Cookie Policy shall apply to the Milliman domain owned by us and any subsite, subdomain, subdirectory, virtual site, or virtual directory thereof (each a “site” and, collectively, the "sites”). We will continue to update you and revise this policy as may be required under applicable law and as technical capabilities are enhanced and additional choices regarding the use of cookies become available to you.

Identification of individuals to contact at Milliman with questions concerning cookies

We hope that this Cookie Policy helps you understand and provides a good explanation for our use of cookies on the sites. If after reviewing this policy you have any further questions for us, require assistance, or have requests based upon the information provided here, please contact us at [email protected].

What are cookies?

In some instances, Milliman may collect data through cookies. A "cookie" is a text-only string of data that Milliman sends to the cookie file of the browser on a website visitor’s computer hard disk using Milliman’s web server. Cookies are used to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide data to the owners of the website.

There are a number of different categories of cookies, each with its own function and limitations. Milliman’s website may use required, analytics, performance, and targeting cookies.

Required cookies (also called strictly necessary cookies): These cookies are essential to the functionality of the sites in order to facilitate your use of the sites and their features, and in order to enable you to move around the sites smoothly. Without these cookies, we may not be able to provide certain services or features, and the sites will not properly function. These cookies may collect your IP address and related information about your interaction with our website (length of visit, pages visited, links clicked, and geolocation information). You can set your browser to block these cookies, but some parts of the sites may not then work.

Analytics and performance cookies: These cookies allow us to see the overall patterns of usage of the sites and help us record any difficulties you have with them. They allow Milliman or Milliman’s third-party agents to collect data, including the number of visitors to the website, the route by which these visitors have come to the website, and the length of time the visitors have spent on the website. These cookies may collect your IP address and related information about your interaction with our website (length of visit, pages visited, links clicked, and geolocation information). They enable Milliman to improve the way the sites works and to prepare statistical analysis of such data. If you do not allow these cookies, we will not know when you have visited our sites and will not be able to monitor their performance.

Targeting cookies: These cookies are third-party cookies set through our site by third parties. Milliman websites may feature content (such as buttons, widgets, and other embedded features or content) put in place by third parties that rely on cookies or similar technologies. Milliman does not set any additional cookies relating to your use of this embedded content. However, if you choose to click on these links and they take you to a third-party website, that third-party may place additional cookies of its own. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

Milliman’s ribbon, at the bottom of its website landing page, lists all the specific cookies used by Milliman, sorted by category.

The majority of web browsers accept cookies and similar files, but a visitor can usually change the browser settings to prevent this. However, by doing so, some functionality of Milliman’s website may be lost. Please visit https://www.aboutcookies.org/ to learn more about cookies and how to control them.

We rely on your consent, to the extent required by law, to use nonrequired cookies that may collect your personal data.

For this reason, we want to provide as much information to you as possible about the cookies we use and how we manage them when you provide us with your consent. Your consent enables us to use cookies to provide the necessary functionality for you to effectively use our sites; enables a positive and streamlined user experience on our sites; tracks your viewing activity across our sites’ web pages; and conducts analytics on your visits to our sites in order to accomplish the objectives outlined in this Cookie Policy.
