GenomeScan Cookie Policy


Our commitment to your privacy

GenomeScan respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your personal data in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The website uses cookies to improve user experience, help us understand how our platform is being used and to measure the effectiveness of announcements, services, and promotions.

About Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your browsing device (computer, tablet, smartphone, …) by websites that you visit. They are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.

GenomeScan uses different types of cookies to run the website. Cookies may be either “permanent” or “session” cookies. A “permanent” cookie consists of a text file sent by a web server to a web browser, which will be stored by the browser and will remain valid until its set expiry date (you can delete “permanent” cookies via the settings of your browser). A “session” cookie, however, will expire at the end of the user session, when the web browser is closed.

Cookies on GenomeScan website

Cookies are an essential part of how our website works. GenomeScan uses First Party cookies (placed there and used solely by GenomeScan) and Third Party cookies (placed by third parties we work with).

We use both “permanent “and “session“ cookies on our website.

What do we use cookies for?

The cookies used on the website are divided in four main types:

  • Strictly necessary cookies: essential in helping you moving around our site. Without these cookies, services that are necessary for you to be able to use the site, such as accessing secure areas, cannot be provided
  • Analytics cookies: collect information about how you are using our site, which pages you visited most often, how you are moving from one link to another and whether you obtained error messages from certain pages. Overall, these cookies provide us with analytical information (statistics) about how our site is performing and how we can improve it
  • Functionality cookies: remember choices you make (user name, language, country selection) and provide enhanced, more personal features. The information theses cookies collect is usually anonymized which means that we cannot identify you personally
  • Marketing cookies: assist in targeting advertisements that are most relevant to you and your interest. We also use them to measure the effectiveness of our marketing communications, for example by telling us if you have responded to an email that we have sent you.

Disabling or Enabling cookies
