Please read the entirety of this Cookies Policy before using or submitting information to us through this website or any online resource.

What are cookies?
Cookies save you the trouble of re-entering certain information in some registration areas, help to deliver content-specific information to you and track which sections of the Site are most popular. A “cookie” is actually a file that our web server or the web server of one of our third-party partners may send to your computer when you access this Site. This file is then stored on your computer.
- After you have entered personal information into a form or data field on this website, cookies enable the website to “remember” that information, should you so choose.
- Cookies and other passive information collection technologies enable us to deliver content that is tailored to your interests and preferences based on your past activity on the website.
- Cookies and other passive information collection technologies enable us to compile aggregate statistics concerning use of the website, analyze trends and otherwise administer and improve the website.
What types of cookies and other tracking technologies do we use?
This website may use the following types of cookies and tracking technologies, among others:
- “Session” cookies: Session cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used, for example, to improve navigation on our websites, block visitors from providing information where inappropriate (e.g. the website may remember previous entries of age that are outside the permitted parameters and block subsequent changes) and to collect aggregated statistical information.
- “Persistent” cookies: Persistent cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (e.g., User Name), helping to determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customizing the website based on your preferences on an ongoing basis.
- “Web beacons” (also known as internet tags, single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs and invisible GIFs): A web beacon is a piece of software code on a web page or in an e-mail message that is used to track pages viewed or messages opened. Web beacons tell the website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. Web beacons may be placed in online advertisements that bring people to this website and on different pages of the website. Web beacons provide us with information on how many times a page is opened and which information is consulted.
Why do we allow third-party partners to place cookies on your computer?
Like most advertisers, Roche places advertisements where we think they will be most relevant to customers. One way we do so is by allowing network advertising companies with whom Roche works to place their own cookies when an individual visits our site. This enables the network advertising company to recognize individuals who have previously visited the Roche website. When the individual visits a third-party website on which that network advertising company has purchased ad space, the advertising company can then recognize the individual’s interest in Roche products and services and deliver one of our advertisements.
How does this website respond to web browser “Do Not Track” signals?
Certain web browsers and other programs may be used to signal your preferences to Roche about how or whether Roche or third parties may collect information about your online activities. Currently, Roche does not respond to such signals.
What choices do you have regarding the delivery of targeted advertisements on third-party sites?
The Digital Advertising Alliance maintains a website where consumers can opt out from receiving interest-based advertising from some or all of the network advertising companies participating in the program.
