What are Cookies and Internet Tags and How Are They Used by AstraZeneca and Amgen?
A cookie is a text file containing information about a user that is stored on a user’s device or computer hard drive. Cookies are used for a variety of purposes, including helping you log into parts of our web sites and mobile applications, to enable us to track the interests of our users to enhance their experience on our web sites and mobile applications, for market research purposes, and to deliver content specific to a user’s interests.
We may place a cookie in the web browser (eg, Internet Explorer) file of your computer or device when you visit our web site. In addition, we or an independent advertising company or another contractor whom we engage may also deliver a uniquely named cookie to your web browser through an AstraZeneca/Amgen email.
We may utilize third-party cookies. Third-party cookies are created by domains that are not the website (or domain) that you are visiting. These cookies are used for our marketing efforts, as well as to understand your browsing of the website, for example, which page you visit or how long you stay on each page. These types of cookies are set by AstraZeneca and Amgen affiliates and/or vendors we are working with to enhance the end-user experience or may be used to identify visitors to our websites.
Note that you may delete or decline the cookie using the tools in your web browser and you may still use our site; however, some parts of our site may not work properly for you.
We may also use Internet Tags such as “pixel tags,” also known as “web beacons,” which are small graphic files that allow us to monitor the use of our websites. A pixel tag can collect information such as the IP (Internet Protocol) address of the computer that downloaded the page on which the tag appears; the URL of the page on which the pixel tag appears; the time the page containing the pixel tag was viewed; the type of browser that fetched the pixel tag; and the identification number of any cookie on the computer previously placed by that server. When corresponding with you via HTML-capable email, we may use "format sensing" technology, which allows pixel tags to let us know whether you received and opened our email.
How is My Information Used for Advertising?
AstraZeneca, Amgen and/or advertising companies may use data collected on AstraZeneca/Amgen’s web sites to customize ads for you on other web sites as you browse the Internet. AstraZeneca participates in a service to comply with the cross-industry Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising (OBA). As part of this service, AstraZeneca/Amgen online advertising and web sites are sometimes delivered with icons that help consumers understand how their data is being used and provide choice options to consumers who want more control including the ability to opt-out. If you do not want your browsing behavior used for OBA purposes you can click on the icon contained in the advertisement or website in order to opt-out.
