What are Cookies?
A cookie is a piece of information contained in a very small text file that is stored on your computer. Cookies allow a website to identify a user’s device whenever that user returns to the website and are commonly used in order to make websites work more efficiently and enrich the user experience, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site.
We may also use third-party cookies. Third-party cookies are created by domains that are not the sites (or domain) that you are visiting. These cookies are used for our marketing efforts, as well as to understand your browsing of the sites, for example, which page you visit or how long you stay on each page. These types of cookies are set by AVEO affiliates and/or vendors we are working with to enhance end-user experience or may be used to identify visitors to our sites.
We may also use internet tags such as “pixel tags,” which are small graphic files that allow us to monitor the use of our websites. A pixel tag can collect additional information such as IP address, URL, timestamp, browser type and the cookie identification number.
“Do-Not-Track” is an optional browser setting that you can use to express your preferences regarding tracking by advertisers and other third parties. Please note, however, that our website does not have the capability to respond to “Do Not Track” signals received from web browsers at this time. We commit to user privacy by honoring Do Not Track (“DNT”) browser settings.
How to Control Cookies
You can control, opt-out, reject and/or delete cookies as you wish. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer, and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work. For more information about how to manage cookies, please visit https://www.aboutcookies.org/.
You may also control your online behavioral advertising preferences and opt-out from having your data processed by certain marketing companies by visiting http://www.youronlinechoices.com/ and http://optout.aboutads.info/. Please note, however, that managing these preferences will not turn off internet advertisements in general. You will still receive the same number of advertisements, but those advertisements will be less reflective of your interests, as indicated by your web browsing habits. In addition, please note that the opt-out preferences that you set using these tools may be nullified if you delete your cookies after setting them.
Main Cookies AVEO Uses
The table below is a list of the main cookies set by AVEO websites. Please note that we may from time to time modify or update our cookies. When that happens, we will update this list accordingly.
- Strictly Necessary Cookies: These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for, cannot be provided.
- Performance Cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use a website, for instance which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from web pages. These cookies do not collect information that identifies a visitor. All information these cookies collect is aggregated and, therefore, anonymous. It is only used to improve how a website works.
- Functionality Cookies: These cookies allow the website to remember choices you make (such as your username, language or the region you are in) and provide enhanced, more personal features. For instance, a website may be able to provide you with local weather reports or traffic news by storing a cookie for the region in which you are currently located. These cookies can also be used to remember changes you have made to text size, fonts and other parts of webpages that you can customize. They may also be used to provide services you have asked for, such as watching a video or commenting on a blog. The information these cookies collect may be anonymized and they cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
- Targeting / Advertising Cookies: These cookies are used to deliver advertisements more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They are usually placed by advertising networks with the website operator’s permission. They remember that you have visited a website and this information is shared with other organizations such as advertisers. Quite often targeting or advertising cookies will be linked to site functionality provided by the other organization.
