1. What are Cookies?
A “cookie” is a small text file that can be stored on your device when you interact with digital properties, such as when you visit a website or load an email. The information stored in the cookie can be read on subsequent visits to the digital property, allowing for the device to be recognized. “First-party cookies” are cookies set by the digital property that you are visiting; “third-party cookies” are cookies set by third parties when you visited the digital property.
“Persistent cookies” are cookies that are not deleted automatically when you close your browser or device. In contrast, “session cookies” are deleted when you close your browser or device. Persistent cookies enable the website to “remember” things about you as a returning visitor, such as your language preferences.
Viatris may collect data from you by using Cookies. Please read our Global Privacy Notice for more information about how we process personal data, including personal data obtained automatically from Cookies.
