Cookies Declaration

The purpose of this Cookies Declaration is to inform you about how we use cookies and other tracking technologies to collect your personal data when you visit our website.

Latest Cookies Declaration update: 11.07.2017.

1. What are cookies and personal data?

Cookies are small text files which can be stored on your computer (or on another device with access to the Internet, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit the AVEVE BIOCHEM website. These text files store the following information: the name of the website from where the cookie originates, the ‘shelf life’ of the cookie (in other words, how long the cookie will be stored on your computer/device) and a value, which usually consists of a randomly generated, unique number.Some cookies can collect your personal data, that is, data that we know about you, as a user of the website.


2. How do we ask permission to place cookies?

When you visit the website, a banner will appear at the top of the page which informs you about the use of cookies on this website.  You can read all of the information related to these cookies in this Cookie Declaration.We do not require your permission to place cookies that are essential for providing you with a service or for performing a function you request. These are the session cookies discussed in Section 3.1 below and the permanent ‘Cookie Bar’ cookies discussed in Section 3.2 below.

In case of other analytical cookies, we assume your implicit consent for their use. If you continue to browse the website, we consider this action as your agreement to placing cookies on your device. If you do not want cookies on your device, read Section 4 below: “How can you manage or remove cookies?”


3. What types of cookies do we use?

3.1 Session cookies

Session cookies are temporary, functional cookies which remain on your computer/device until you leave the AVEVE BIOCHEM website. These cookies are essential, because the website or the service you have requested cannot function or will not function properly without the use of these cookies. Every time you visit our website, these cookies contain a different, temporary number. The cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser.We do not need your permission for these session cookies, because they are necessary to provide you with the various functions of our website. These cookies have a minimal impact on your privacy.

    3.2 Permanent cookies

    This type of cookie remains on your computer longer than a session cookie or until it is manually deleted. (The duration of the cookie remaining on your device depends on the ‘shelf life’ of the specific cookie and on your browser settings.) By using these types of cookies, we can recognise you the next time you visit our website. This allows the website to be specifically adapted to your preferences. For example, if you have agreed to the placement of cookies, we can remember this by means of a cookie. That means you do not have to repeat your preferences every time you visit, saving you time and making your visits to our website more enjoyable. 

    Just like the session cookies, your permission for the use of the ‘Cookie Bar’ cookies is not required, because it is strictly necessary for the communication about the use of cookies.

    4. How can you manage or remove cookies?

    Most Internet browsers are set up to automatically accept cookies. You can decline or delete cookies via the browser settings on your computer. The exact method for doing this differs from browser to browser. If necessary, consult your browser’s help function. These settings must be configured individually for each browser and for each computer/device!

    Not accepting, deleting or deactivating cookies may result in certain website functionalities not functioning properly or at all. This may lead to a disappointing website experience.
