When you visit www.novonordiskfonden.dk or ScienceNews, we gather information about your computer and your behaviour on the website. In the following, you can read more about cookies in general, how we use the information and who has access to this information.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small passive text file that is stored in your computer’s browser when you visit a website. Cookies are received automatically. The benefits of cookies are that they recognize you when you return to a website. Cookies may contain letters and numbers and do not store personal information without your consent. A cookie is not an application and therefore it cannot contain viruses.
It is common to distinguish between first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are allocated to the page that you visit – in this case novonordiskfonden.dk – whereas third-party cookies marketed by a third-party, such as a web analytics program.
What are cookies used for?
To compile statistics about the use of the website, so that we can continually improve the user experience by identifying the type of content that is in demand. This is also used to see interactions and traffic from Social Media such as Facebook and LinkedIn.
We use Google Analytics to analyse how people use our website. The information generated by the cookie about your use (including traffic data and your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
You can disable cookies from Google Analytics here: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
How long will cookies be stored?
A cookie’s life may vary depending on your preference and needs. Some disappear when you close your browser, whereas others can exist for years. It depends on the specific website. Typical cookies “live” for up to 2 years, but are usually extended after each visit to the website. If you revisit a website after 6 months, the cookie’s lifetime will be prolonged by 2 years from the date of your visit. On novonordiskfonden.dk, cookies for Google Analytics are kept for 1 year. At any time you can delete cookies from your computer (see the paragraph on “How to prevent or delete cookies”). novonordiskfonden.dk does not store any information that can identify you without your consent, and this type of information is never disclosed to third parties. In some cases, we may use subcontractors for processing the data.
