In this statement we provide all the information necessary to understand what cookies are and for what they are used, both by us and by third-party companies that provide services through our pages.
General information about cookies
We explain what cookies are, how they work and what they are for.
When you log in to Biolife or use one of our services, our system or that of one of our partners may set or read cookies and / or other types of identifiers about the browser and / or device you are using.
A cookie is a small text file that is stored on the computer of someone viewing a website in order to record some information related to the visit and to create a system to recognize the user even at a later time. The identifiers of the devices, however, are generated by collecting and processing some information such as the IP address and / or the user agent (browser version, type and version of the operating system) or other characteristics of the device, again in order to reconnect certain information to a specific user.
A website can set a cookie on the browser only if the preferences configured for the latter allow it. It is important to know that a browser can allow a specific website to access only the cookies set by it and not those set by other websites: there is no risk for your privacy in this regard.
We explain to you what cookies could be transmitted to your client, browsing the pages of our site, and for what purposes they are used.
• offer access to reserved areas of the site and access to authentication (in this case cookies are called “technical” and are used to maintain the browsing session and / or to facilitate subsequent access from the same device).
• to elaborate statistical analysis (analytics) about the use of the site and / or services embedded in it;
• offer advertising and / or content relevant to visitors’ interests (only third-party cookies).
We explain to you which cookies are managed directly by us.
Biolife DOES NOT use first-party profiling cookies: the only cookies generated and managed directly by Biolife are the so-called technical cookies (which are used only and exclusively to offer the services offered to the public correctly) and, extremely limited, analytics cookies (which are used to count the number of readings on the various pages of the site and / or for other statistical purposes).
Google Analytics cookies
We explain how we have set up Google Analytics to protect your privacy and why you do not need your consent for its cookies.
This site makes use of the service offered by Google Analytics in order to have a complete and reliable statistics about the use of the site itself. In order to guarantee the privacy of the users as strictly as possible, we have carried out anonymization of the IPs (therefore, Google Analytics will make anonymous the IP address of the user / visitor as soon as this is technically possible in the most upstream passage of the network where data is collected).
The Data Controller also informs:
• that the advertising, demographic and data sharing options have not been activated with other Google and / or other companies platforms;
• to have accepted the Amendment on data processing (Google Analytics Data Processing Amendment) made available by Google Analytics in compliance with the GDPR and having provided the required legal data.
If the user, despite the aforementioned reassurances, thinks he wants to block Analytics cookies, he can do it through the tool provided at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=it.
