3.    What types of cookies do we use?

Based on the party that places the cookies, a distinction can be made between:

  • First party cookies are cookies that are placed and managed by Sanofi.

A website may contain links to promote or share information through third party social media networks, such as Facebook or Twitter, or to provide video content through a third party service provider. These links work by means of a code made available by this third party. This code allows for more cookie placement. We call these types of cookies third-party cookies. We need your permission to use these types of cookies.
We also recommend that you read this third party's privacy statement and cookie statement before sharing data

The aforementioned third parties may collect the cookies with cookies. We have no influence on that. Headquarters and other locations in the United States may be used outside the European Economic Area. It could also be that they use cookies to transfer their collected data to such foreign locations, for example because their servers are located outside the EEA

Based on the duration of cookies, a distinction can be made between:

  • Temporary cookies are temporarily stored in your browser. These cookies are deleted as soon as the browser closes.
