What is a Cookie?
Almost every website uses cookie technology. Some cookies are useful as they are able to improve the user experience. Cookies, among other things, speed navigation through our Site, keep track of information so that you do not have to re-enter it each time you visit our Site, help us provide you with customized content and allow us to learn about your visit.
Types of Cookies We Use
We use four types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, and cookies for marketing purposes.
- Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the Site and use its features. These temporary cookies only last only as long as your web browser is open, and are used for technical purposes such as enabling better navigation on our Site. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided – for example, remembering previous actions (e.g. entered text) when navigating back to a page in the same session. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears.
- Performance cookies are stored on your computer for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to our Site and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. These cookies do not save information that would allow the user to be identified. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore made anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website, and with it the user experience.
- Functional cookies enable the Site to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, languages choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalized functions. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.
- Cookies for advertising purposes are used to display advertisements to users that are more targeted and adapted to their interests. They also are used to limit the frequency with which an advertisement appears and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They register whether a person has visited a website or not. This information may be shared with third-parties advertisers. Cookies for improving target group appeal and advertising are often linked with page functionalities of third-party providers.
Some of the cookies are used exclusively by Cardinal Health, and therefore are called “first-party cookies.” We also use third-party service providers to assist us by providing certain statistical and analytics information. These parties may set cookies (known as “third-party cookies”) to measure site performance, events, and visitor activity to make sure the Site is meeting the needs of users and help us make improvements for navigation, search, and content. These third-party service providers also may help us manage, carry out and improve our advertising and set third-party cookies to provide you with advertisement that we have would be relevant to you.
