About cookies

These guidelines for cookies (the ”Guidelines”) apply to Oncopeptides use of cookies on Oncopeptides websites (the “Websites”). The guidelines describe the cookies that are used on the websites and the purpose and duration period of the cookies (i.e. how long each cookie is stored) as well as how you can block or delete cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files with information that are stored on your computer (or other Internet enabled devices, such as smart phones or tablets) when you visit a website. A cookie normally contains the name of the website it originates from, the duration period of the cookie (i.e. how long the cookie will be stored on your device) and a value, which is usually a randomly generated unique number.

Cookies are used to make websites work more efficiently, but also to provide the owner of the website with certain information. Cookies make it possible to distinguish between users, which in itself can give each user a more customized and positive experience of the website.

What does Oncopeptides use cookies for?

Oncopeptides uses cookies that are needed for the websites to function properly and that are necessary for you to be able to navigate the website and to use its functions. You do not have to accept absolutely necessary cookies as they are required for us be able to provide the services you request.

The websites use cookies that enable counting the number of users and calculating the traffic to the website, to enhance your experience and to individualize future visits by remembering your user preferences. Cookies are also used to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics to better understand how users use the websites, which helps us improve their structure and content.

Cookies that are used on the websites

There are three types of cookies on the websites:

  • Persistent cookies, i.e. cookies that are saved as a file on your computer for a longer period of time. For example, persistent cookies are used in connection with functions that tell you what information is new since you last visited the specific website. How long the cookie is stored on your device depends on the duration period of the specific cookie and the settings of your browser.
  • Session cookies, i.e. cookies that are stored temporarily in the memory of your computer while you are visiting and navigating a site. Session cookies are used, for example, to determine what language you have selected. When you leave a website, the session cookies that have been used are deleted.
  • Third-party cookies, i.e. cookies that belong to other domains than those shown in the address bar. Third-party cookies create possibilities in tracing the user’s browser history.

How you block and/or delete cookies

Most browsers have standard settings that accept the use of cookies. You can change these settings so that you as a user are warned whenever a cookie is sent to your computer, or to block cookies as a main rule. You can also choose to delete all cookies that are stored on your computer.

How you delete stored cookies or change your settings regarding cookies is specified in the browser instructions or in the help function that most browsers are equipped with. If you use different devices to see and access the website (for example your computer, smart phone, tablet etc.), you must ensure that the Website of each device is adjusted in accordance with your wishes regarding cookies.

Note that if you choose not to allow storage of cookies, it is possible that you cannot use all parts of the Websites and that some parts of the websites may not function properly.
