ExxonMobil Cookie Statement

What cookies are and how we use them

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that is stored on your device when you visit a website and contains information that is transferred to your computer.  This information is sent back to the website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie. 

Our website uses cookies to distinguish your device from other visitors’ devices.  This helps us to provide you with a better online experience, for example, by remembering your preferences, and also allows us to improve the site, for example, by measuring site visits and by ensuring that visitors easily find what they are looking for. 

We also use cookies for other purposes, including:

  • to remember visitors’ preferences, such as, font size, language choice or region; and
  • to collect information about how visitors use our website, for example, which pages are visited and the duration of the visit.

We will also use cookies where they are necessary to provide a service you have requested, for example, so that you can access secure areas of our website.  Some of the cookies we use are essential for parts of our site to operate.  You may delete and block all cookies from this site, but that may result in parts of the site not working as intended.

You can find more information about the cookies used across ExxonMobil websites (including Exxon, Mobil and Esso branded websites) and the purposes for which they are used in the table below. Each cookie will not necessarily be used on each ExxonMobil website. 

Consent to cookies

In some countries, the law requires your permission to place cookies on your computer.  As a visitor in one of those countries, you may consent to our placing of cookies on your device, in one of two ways (depending on the website visited); either you select the box to “accept cookies from this website” which will appear in a dedicated pop-up (a cookie banner), and you click on “Confirm”. Or, you continue to browsing the site after receipt of a cookie banner informing you that by continuing to browse the website you consent to our placing of cookies on your device. In both cases, you can change your mind at any time by opting-out (see below for more information).

Previous visits to ExxonMobil websites

If you have previously visited an ExxonMobil website, it is likely that cookies were placed on your computer at that time.  The cookies previously placed will be similar or the same as the cookies listed in the table below and we use them for similar or the same purposes.

To delete cookies that we previously placed, follow the instructions in the section “Opting-out.”

Opting-out

At any time you can delete and block all cookies from this site.  You can delete cookies in most web browsers and you should be able to block cookies by activating the feature on your browser that allows you to refuse the setting of some or all cookies.  The "help" screen in your browser or computer user manual should tell you how to do this.
