We use first and third party cookies for a variety of purposes. Some cookies are required for technical reasons for our Websites to function, and these are referred to as "essential" or "strictly necessary" cookies. Other cookies allow us to track and target our users' interests in order to improve their experience on our Online Properties. Cookies are served by third parties through our Websites for advertising, analytics, and other purposes. This is explained in greater detail below. The following are the specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Websites, as well as the purposes they serve (please note that the specific cookies served may vary depending on the specific Online Properties you visit).
- Purpose: These cookies are strictly necessary to provide you with services available through our Websites and to use some of its features.
- Alvis Science, Inc.
- Intercom (cookie used for user authentications)
- How to refuse: Because these cookies are strictly necessary to deliver the Websites and the Services to you, you cannot refuse them.
- Purpose: These cookies collect information that is used either in aggregate form to help us understand how our Websites are being used or how effective are marketing campaigns are, or to help us customize our Websites for you.
Most web browsers allow you to delete cookies from your computer's hard drive, block all cookies (or just third-party cookies), or be notified when a cookie is about to be stored on your device. Please keep in mind that if you choose to block all cookies, our Services will not function properly and you will be unable to use or access many of the features we offer. If you have disabled all cookies and want to use all of the features and services we provide, you must enable your cookies. This is something you can do in your browser. Rather than blocking all cookies, you can choose to only block third-party cookies, allowing our website to function normally.
You have the right of accepting or rejecting cookies. You can exercise your cookie rights by configuring your Cookie Consent Manager preferences. The Cookie Consent Manager lets you choose which types of cookies to accept or reject. Essential cookies cannot be rejected because they are required to provide you with services. The Cookie Consent Manager is accessible through the notification banner and our website. If you choose to reject cookies, you may still use our website, but access to certain functionality and areas of our website may be limited. You can also configure your web browser to accept or reject cookies. Because the methods for refusing cookies through your web browser controls differ from browser to browser, you should consult your browser's help menu for more information. Furthermore, most advertising networks allow you to opt out of targeted advertising. Please see the preceding section for information on how to opt out of certain cookies.
Cookies are not the only way to identify and track website visitors. We may use other, similar technologies, such as web beacons, from time to time (sometimes called "tracking pixels" or "clear gifs"). These are small graphics files with a unique identifier that allow us to know when someone has visited our Websites or opened an e-mail containing them. This allows us to monitor user traffic patterns from one page within a website to another, deliver or communicate with cookies, determine whether you came to the website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, improve site performance, and measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns, among other things. Many of these technologies rely on cookies to function properly, so refusing cookies will impair their performance.
Websites may also use so-called "Flash Cookies" (also known as Local Shared Objects or "LSOs") to, among other things, collect and store information about your use of our services, fraud prevention and for other site operations. If you do not want Flash Cookies stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash Cookies storage using the tools contained in the Website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash Cookies by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash Cookies (referred to "information" on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash Cookies that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time). Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash Cookies may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with our services or online content.
Third parties may serve cookies on your computer or mobile device to serve advertising through our Websites. These companies may use information about your visits to this and other websites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services that you may be interested in. They may also employ technology that is used to measure the effectiveness of advertisements. This can be accomplished by them using cookies or web beacons to collect information about your visits to this and other sites in order to provide relevant advertisements about goods and services of potential interest to you. The information collected through this process does not enable us or them to identify your name, contact details or other details that directly identify you unless you choose to provide these.
