Effective Date – 07/08/2021

This Cookie Policy describes the ways in which Spirit AeroSystems Inc. and its affiliates (“we,” “our,” or “us”) use cookies to record your internet settings and browsing preferences, which allows us to optimize the design of our websites and improve your online experience.  We may also use third parties cookies for third party advertising, social plugins or analyzing traffic on all our Company websites (collectively our “Sites”).

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that are placed on your device when you visit a website.  They allow the website to remember certain pieces of information about you, like your preferences (e.g. language or location) and your browsing behavior (e.g. the webpages you visit). This information allows the website to recognize your device and remember your preferences when you return to the website from the same device and web browser. It is also used for web analytics.

Types of cookies

We divide cookies into four categories, depending on their function and intended purpose: necessary cookies, statistics cookies, preferences cookies, and marketing cookies.

Necessary cookies

These cookies are essential for our Sites to function. Without these cookies, you would not be able to navigate our Sites or operate their basic functions.

Statistics cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use our Sites.  We use Google Analytics to collect, analyze, measure, and report data from these cookies to understand our web traffic and page views in order to improve the performance of our Sites and your user experience.   For example, the cookies record which browser and operating system you used, which parts of the Sites you visited, your number of visits, and the average duration of your visits.  They do not collect information that would allow us to identify you. The collected information is aggregated and, therefore, remains anonymous.

Preferences cookies

These cookies store information that you have already entered, such as your location, in order for your experience to feel more personalized when you return to our Sites.  These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.

Marketing cookies

These cookies register your activity on our Sites.  To show you relevant personalized advertising on other sites such as Google and Facebook, we use tools such as Google AdWords. We may allow a limited number of trusted third party advertising partners to install cookies to build a profile of your interests based on information about you, such as your page views on our Sites and your information requests.  These cookies are also used to limit the display frequency of advertisements and to measure and control the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns.


Our Sites may include third-party advertising, links to other websites and social plugins.  Social plugins are buttons that let you share your experiences on our Sites with other people on social media platforms (Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube). When you share your experiences through social plugins, social media platforms install their own cookies on your device.

These cookies do not store information about you but they uniquely identify your browser and device.  Together with other information about you collected by our advertising partners or social media companies, your browser and device information could be used by third parties to identify you.

Your choices

If you do not want our Sites to collect information through the use of cookies, you can set your web browser to reject cookies from our Sites.  Each browser is different, so you should check your browser’s “Help” menu to learn how to change your cookie preferences.  If you reject or block cookies from our Sites, however, our Sites may not function as intended.

We do not currently respond to web browser “do not track” signals or other mechanisms that provide a method to opt out of the collection of information across the networks of websites and online services in which we participate.  If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Cookie Policy.
