Cookies: How they are used

When you visit or interact with John Deere’s Online Services, John Deere (and/or autho­rized third parties) store and/or access data using Cookies. The specific types of tech­nolo­gies used may change from time-to-time, but the following is a brief descrip­tion of how Cookies are used on the Online Services.

Essen­tial or Neces­sary Cookies

Essen­tial or Neces­sary Cookies. These are Cookies that are neces­sary for the func­tioning of the Online Services. For example, they are used to enable the oper­a­tion of the Online Services, enable access to secure areas of the Online Services, remember previous actions (e.g., entered text when navi­gating back to a page in the same session), remember items placed in a shop­ping basket or cart during a session, secure the Online Services and for the admin­is­tra­tion of the Online Services (e.g., load balancing, fraud preven­tion). Without these Cookies, the Online Services would not func­tion prop­erly and/or John Deere may be unable to provide certain services.

Func­tional Cookies

These are Cookies that are not neces­sary to the oper­a­tion of the Online Services, but they enhance the use of the Online Services by remem­bering certain choices you may make and providing enhanced features. For example, they are used to remember site pref­er­ences or choices, such as remem­bering pref­er­ences for language, country, region or other online settings made (e.g., text size, fonts). These cookies and other tech­nolo­gies can be used to enable requested func­tions such as watching a video (e.g., YouTube video) or providing comments. They can also be used to prevent a service(s) from being offered to you if you already received it or previ­ously indi­cated you do not wish to receive it (e.g. requests to partic­i­pate in certain types of surveys). If you have an account with the Online Services the infor­ma­tion collected may be asso­ci­ated with your account.

Func­tional Cookies also collect infor­ma­tion about how the Online Services are used, including which pages are visited most often, the browser or oper­ating system used, where users have come to the Online Services from, whether an item or link is viewed or used, error messages gener­ated and whether commu­ni­ca­tions John Deere sends are opened or read (also known as analytics or perfor­mance Cookies). This infor­ma­tion is used to help John Deere improve its Online Services, count the number of visi­tors, iden­tity usage patterns, fix issues in the Online Services, and make the Online Services easier to use. If you have an account with the Online Services the infor­ma­tion collected may be asso­ci­ated with your account.

Some analytics and perfor­mance Cookies are used in connec­tion with services provided by third parties, including the following:

  • Google Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Google. Google Analytics may collect infor­ma­tion about your use of the Online Services (including your IP address). Infor­ma­tion gener­ated will be trans­mitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States of America. For more infor­ma­tion, please visit Google’s site. Google also provides a browser add-on that allows you to opt-out of Google Analytics across all websites.
  • Adobe Analytics is a web analytics service provided by Adobe. Adobe Analytics is used to collect infor­ma­tion about your use of the Online Services (including your IP address). Infor­ma­tion gener­ated will be trans­mitted to and stored by Adobe on servers in the United States of America. For more infor­ma­tion, please visit Adobe’s site.

Targeting or Adver­tising Cookies

These Cookies collect infor­ma­tion about your browsing habits and online behavior, including across different browsers and devices used by you, in order to serve adver­tise­ments that may be of interest to you on the Online Services and others’ sites and services you may visit. For example, your browsing activity on the Online Services and your activ­i­ties on others’ sites and services can be used to infer infor­ma­tion about you, which can be used to make adver­tise­ments more rele­vant to you (commonly referred to as ‘interest-based adver­tising’). They also are used to limit the number of times you may see an adver­tise­ment and to help measure the effec­tive­ness of adver­tising campaigns. They remember you visited the Online Services (including pages visited and links followed) and this infor­ma­tion may be shared with other orga­ni­za­tions such as adver­tisers and adver­tising networks. These cookies usually are placed by third-parties. Data collected through Func­tional Cookies (such as analytics and perfor­mance Cookies) also may be used, in part, to facil­i­tate adver­tising.

Third Party Cookies

John Deere may use third parties who use their own Cookies to store and/or access data relating to your use of, and inter­ac­tion with, the Online Services. For example, as refer­enced in Cookies – How They Are Used, John Deere uses analytics and adver­tising services provided by third party compa­nies and they may set their own Cookies.

The Online Services may contain content from third parties such as Google Maps, YouTube, ZMags and ShareThis and plugins from social media sites like Face­book (“Like” button), Twitter (“Share to Twitter”) and Linkedin. When you connect to these services, the third parties may store and/or access data using Cookies over which John Deere does not have control, including their own Func­tional or Targeting or Adver­tising Cookies. If you are logged in to a social media website while visiting the Online Services the social media plugins may allow the social media website to receive infor­ma­tion that you visited the Online Services and link it to your social media account.

John Deere does not control the Cookies used by these third party services or their poli­cies or prac­tices. Please review those third parties’ cookie, privacy and data sharing state­ments.

John Deere’s Cookie Consent Manager is a browser cookie-based tool that may allow you to modify settings related to certain Func­tional and Targeting or Adver­tising Cookies. It is not possible to modify settings related to Neces­sary Cookies. The tool works by commu­ni­cating the selected setting to third party compa­nies to initiate a third party’s opt-out mech­a­nism, if avail­able. The effect of such selec­tion may be described in the third party’s cookie, privacy and/or data sharing state­ments. If the tool is unable to inte­grate with a third party this will be noted in the Advanced Settings page with infor­ma­tion about such third party. The Advanced Settings page will also provide infor­ma­tion about Cookies used on the Online Services.

The tool will only work on the Internet browser you use to make your choice and it will only func­tion prop­erly if your browser is set to accept third-party browser cookies. If you delete cookies, change browsers, computers or oper­ating systems, you will need to make a new selec­tion.

Targeting or Adver­tising Cookies

A number of the third party compa­nies that use Targeting or Adver­tising Cookies are members of the Network Adver­tising Initia­tive (NAI). Indi­vid­uals may opt out of targeted adver­tising deliv­ered by NAI member ad networks by visiting

Also, there are industry self-regu­la­tory programs to provide indi­vid­uals with choices related to seeing inter­ested-based ads from partic­i­pating compa­nies.

These tools may use cookies to record and imple­ment your pref­er­ences. As a result, if you disable or delete cookies, you may need to go through the opt-out process again. If you set your browser to reject third-party cookies, your pref­er­ence may not be recorded. The effect of opting-out is explained on each site.

Browser Cookies

Your web browser may offer func­tion­ality that allows you to choose whether to accept or decline the use of browser cookies. Most web browsers are set to accept browser cookies by default. For more infor­ma­tion about the avail­able controls, please visit your browser or device’s settings. Beacons are gener­ally used in conjunc­tion with browser cookies. If you delete or decline the use of browser cookies via browser settings, beacons may not be able to func­tion prop­erly.

Flash Cookies

Flash cookies are different from browser cookies. Removing or rejecting browser cookies via a browser setting does not neces­sarily affect Flash cookies. You may learn how to manage Flash cookies by going to the Settings Manager for Adobe Flash Player or visiting Adobe’s website. If you disable Flash cookies you may not be able to take advan­tage of all of the features of the Online Services.

HTML5 Local Storage

It may be possible to block or delete HTML5 local storage func­tion­ality from your browser’s settings. Without HTML5 you may not be able to take advan­tage of all of the features of the Online Services.

Do Not Track

John Deere does not currently take actions to respond to “Do Not Track” signals because a uniform tech­no­log­ical stan­dard has not yet been devel­oped.


Browser or HTTP Cookies

Browser cookies are small pieces of infor­ma­tion that websites send to your device when you visit to uniquely iden­tify your browser or to store infor­ma­tion or settings in your browser. Cookies commu­ni­cate infor­ma­tion to John Deere or third parties to help us provide the Online Services, provide a customized expe­ri­ence, analyze how the Online Services are used and enable John Deere to detect certain kinds of fraud (amongst others). There are several types of browser cookies:

  • First party cookies are cookies set or placed by the website or domain that is being visited (e.g., John Deere). These may be session or persis­tent cookies.
  • Third party cookies are cookies that are set by a website or domain other than that of the website or domain currently being visited. These may be session or persis­tent cookies.
  • Session cookies are cookies that at expire once you close the browser (although there may be a small delay in some instances before expi­ra­tion, such as mobile browsing). These may be first or third party cookies.
  • Persis­tent cookies are cookies that remain on a user’s device for the period of time spec­i­fied in the cookie (or until deleted). These may be first or third party cookies.

Web Beacons

Web beacons (also called clear GIFs or pixels) are tiny graphic images or lines of code placed in the Online Services or in emails that include a unique iden­ti­fier to allow us (and/or third parties) to deter­mine unique user visits and whether you have performed a specific action. When you access these pages or open or click an email, these tech­nolo­gies generate a notice of that action. These tools are often used in conjunc­tion with HTTP cookies and are gener­ally used to measure responses to commu­ni­ca­tions and improve Online Services and promo­tions.

LSO & Local Storage

Other tech­nolo­gies, such as local shared objects (e.g., Flash cookies) and local storage (e.g., device or HTML5 local storage and caching), allow John Deere (and/or third-parties) to person­alize and enhance your online expe­ri­ence by storing and retrieving data on a device. Flash cookies use tech­nology to remember settings, pref­er­ences and usage similar to browser cookies, but these are managed through a different inter­face than the one provided by your web browser. HTML5 uses the local storage of the device that accesses the Online Services. The Online Services may record infor­ma­tion in local storage and read it when it is needed.

Embedded Script

An embedded script is program­ming code that is designed to collect infor­ma­tion about your inter­ac­tions with the Online Services, such as links clicked. The code is temporarily down­loaded to your device from John Deere or a third-party service provider and is active only when you are connected to the Online Service.


An ETag is an opaque iden­ti­fier assigned by a web server to a specific version of a resource found at a URL. If the resource at that URL changes a new and different ETag is assigned. ETags are a form of iden­ti­fier.
