For some of our sites, we may post a Cookie Policy that is site-specific.

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.

What are cookies?

In some instances, Milliman may collect data through cookies.
