Cookie Policy

Our cookie policy
This policy aims to explain how this website uses cookies to provide clear and relevant information to allow you to make choices to control what happens when you access the site. This policy uses the term 'cookie' to refer to cookies and similar technologies covered by law (such as, for example, Local Shared Objects - commonly referred to as 'flash cookies', web beacons or web bugs, including clear gifs).

The information collected concerns data that may allow the identification of users/visitors through association and processing with data held by third parties (such as, for example, IP addresses and domain names of computers used by people who connect to the website). These data are used for statistical purposes only.

This document is an integral and substantial part of the Privacy Policy and the notice contained therein issued pursuant to Articles 13 and 14 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679. We therefore invite you to read that document.

Applicable law - This subject is regulated by European Directive 2002/58/EC – subsequently amended by Directive 2009/136/EC and transposed by the national laws of the Member States of the European Union – which requires us to inform you and obtain your consent for the use of cookies and similar technologies.

What is a cookie - A cookie is a small text file, usually consisting of letters and numbers, downloaded onto your device when you access the website. Cookies are then sent to the original site at each subsequent visit.

This information may relate to you, your preferences or the device you use to access the site (computer, tablet or mobile phone) and is primarily used to tailor the functioning of the site to your expectations or to collect data for statistical purposes.

The use of cookies and similar technologies has long been common practice, because cookies are important in the provision of many online services. The use of these technologies is not, therefore, prohibited by law but requires that you be informed about the cookies and given the opportunity to accept them or not.

Different types of cookies - Cookies are classified differently according to the aspect considered. With regard to the duration of the cookies, a distinction is made between session and persistent cookies.

Session cookies - Cookies can expire at the end of a browser session (i.e., they last from when you open the browser window until you exit the browser). They allow websites to track your actions during a browser session. They can be used for a variety of purposes, such as remembering what you have put in your shopping cart while browsing a site. They can also be used for security when you access internet banking services or to facilitate the use of webmail. These session cookies expire after a browser session.

The use of session cookies (which, in any case, are not permanently stored on your computer and are automatically deleted as soon as the browser is closed) is strictly limited to the purpose of transmitting data (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) that identify the specific session and are necessary to enable secure and efficient browsing. The session cookies used in this site do not use other information technology that could compromise the privacy of the users browsing the web.

Persistent cookies - These cookies can be stored longer than a session. They are stored on your device between different browser sessions and enable your actions in a website to be remembered. Persistent cookies can be used for a variety of purposes, including remembering your preferences and choices when using a site (or in some cases through different websites).

“First-party” and “third-party” cookies - With reference to the party setting the cookie, a distinction is made between first-party and third-party cookies. Whether a cookie is a “first-party” or “third-party” cookie is strictly linked to the website or domain that uses that cookie. “First-party” cookies are cookies set by the website visited by you, in other words the site displayed in the URL window: in our case, this means the cookies set by this website of the Controller. “Third-party” cookies are cookies set by a different domain from the one visited by you: i.e., cookies set by websites different from the website of this Controller. If you visit a website (such as this one) and a third-party company sets a cookie through this website, that cookie is a “third-party” cookie.

Technical cookies - Technical cookies are necessary for communication on the electronic network and are usually installed directly by the Controller or operator of the website. They are used for the proper functioning of the website or to improve the service provided to you. The installation of these cookies does not require your prior consent, but you must be informed of their presence.

Profiling cookies - Profiling cookies are designed to create user profiles and are used to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by you during your web browsing. For profiling cookies, you must be informed of their presence and consent to their use.

We use cookies on this site that enable us to understand how visitors use the site, in order to be able to assess and improve its functioning. Your personal data will not be accessible to us, except in anonymous and aggregate form. We use Google Analytics cookies for this purpose.

Cookies for advertising targeting
These cookies derive from third-party services and allow us to provide advertising agencies with information about your visit to our site so you can see advertising messages based on your interests. These cookies also allow us to connect to social networks, which may also use information about your visit to our site to display advertising messages.

Data Controller - IBSA Institut Biochimique SA, as identified in the Privacy Policy, is the Data Controller –  and is liable –  solely for its own cookies, i.e. "first party" cookies. All other cookies, i.e. "third-party" cookies, are under the control of the companies that own them.

Consent for cookies
This site uses various techniques to obtain your consent. One method is by clicking the box that appears on the site notifying you of the use of cookies.

Your browser settings are another way of giving or refusing consent to cookies. You can set your browser to tell you when cookies are present, so you can decide whether or not to accept the cookies. It is also possible to automatically reject all cookies, by enabling this option in the browser.

Each browser provides instructions for this purpose. If you want to disable the use of cookies, you can change the browser settings to block them. See your browser’s help manual for details on how to do this. Please note that if you disable all cookies, your use of the website and the services we offer may be affected in whole or in part.
