INTRODUCTION AND SCOPE
This Policy uses the term 'cookies' to refer to cookies and similar technologies that are protected by law (for example, Local Shared Objects - commonly referred to as "flash cookies", web beacons or pixels, including transparent GIFs). The information collected includes data that enables the identification of users/website visitors by associating and processing it with other data stored by third parties (for example, IP address, domain, and computer registration number used by users connecting to the website). This data is used and processed for statistical purposes only.
1. 1. COOKIE USAGE PURPOSE
Cookies are small files, typically consisting of letters and numbers, that are downloaded onto a device when a user accesses a website. Cookies are text files placed on your computer by the website you visit. The cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie. Cookies contain information that is transferred to your computer's hard drive. This information may be about you, your preferences, or your device and is usually used to make the site work as you expect it to. They are used to make the website work, or work more efficiently, and to provide information to the website owner.
Cookies are intended to enhance website functionality and overall performance and provide users with a more personalized experience. They also provide insights into the usage of our website by web visitors and help us understand how visitors use our website and the services provided therein.
2. TYPES OF COOKIE I
The cookies will expire at the end of the browsing session (from the time the user opens the browser window until they exit the browser), or they can be saved for a longer period of time.
Persistent cookies allow user preferences or actions across a website (or in some cases across different websites) to be remembered. Persistent cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering user choices and preferences when using a website.
Cookies can be classified as 'first-party' or 'third-party' depending on the website or domain that sets the cookie.
First-party cookies, in basic terms, are cookies set by the domain visited by the user - the website displayed in the URL window: that is, cookies set by Galderma on this website.
Third-party cookies are cookies set by a domain other than the one being visited by the user: that is, cookies set by companies and websites other than Galderma, such as Google, Facebook, YouTube, etc.
