Further Information on Cookies
Many of the cookies placed through our Site are session cookies, while others are persistent cookies; of these cookies, some are “first-party” cookies, while others are “third-party” cookies.

  • First-party cookies are those set by a Site that is being visited by the user at the time (e.g., cookies placed by SomaLogic).
  • Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain other than that of the Site being visited by the user. If a user visits a Site and another entity sets a cookie through that Site, this would be a third-party cookie.
  • Persistent cookies are cookies that remain on a user’s device for the period of time specified in the cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the Site that created that particular cookie. If the cookie lifespan is not disclosed in the cookie settings, we use a default lifespan of thirteen (13) months, unless a shorter period is required by law.
  • Session cookies are cookies that allow Site operators to link the actions of a user during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser window and finishes when they close the browser window. Session cookies are created temporarily. Once you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

“Do Not Track Signal”

Many web browsers allow for the use of a “Do Not Track” function to inform websites that you do not want your online activities tracked. At this time, we do not track your or any other users’ Personal Information over time and across third-party websites. Our Site, therefore, does not respond to browser do-not-track signals, or other equivalent universal opt-out signals.

Web Beacons

Our Site may contain electronic images known as web beacons (or single-pixel gifs) that we use to help deliver cookies on our Site, count users who have visited the Site, and deliver content and advertising. We also include web beacons in our promotional email messages and newsletters to determine whether you open and act on them.

In addition to placing web beacons on our Site, we sometimes work with other companies to place our web beacons on their Sites or in their advertisements. This helps us develop statistics on how often clicking on an advertisement results in a purchase or other action.
