ConsentWe may ask for your consent to place cookies or other similar technologies on your device, except where they are essential for us to provide you with a service that you have requested. You can withdraw any consent to the use of any cookies or manage any other cookie preferences by visiting our Cookies Center. There are details of how to do this below.

How can I access the Cookies Center?
If you visit any Lonza website the Cookies Center banner should appear towards the bottom of the page. You can also visit the Cookies Center directly by clicking 'Edit Preferences' at the bottom of this or any page. At the Cookies Center you’ll be given the option of agreeing to all cookies, rejecting all cookies (except for essential cookies – we’ll talk more about this below) or tailoring your cookie experience to suit your own browsing by clicking ‘Manage Choices’. If you click ‘Manage Choices’ you’ll see all of our cookies listed under the following headings:
- Required Cookies
- Functional Cookies
- Advertising Cookies
You can click on either Functional Cookies or Advertising Cookies to get more detail on each of the cookies we use.
What Are Cookies?
- Cookies – Small text files (typically made up of letters and numbers) placed in the memory of your browser or device when you visit a website or view a message. Cookies are then sent back to the originating web domain on your subsequent visits to that domain and allow the website to recognize your particular device or browser. Most web pages contain elements from multiple web domains so that when you visit the website, your browser may receive cookies from several sources. Cookies allow you to navigate between pages efficiently, remember preferences and generally improve the user experience. They can also be used to tailor advertising to your interests through tracking your browsing across websites. There are several types of cookies:
- Session cookies expire at the end of your browser session and allow us to link your actions during that particular browser session.
- Persistent cookies are stored on your device in between browser sessions, allowing us to remember your preferences or actions across multiple sites.
- First-party cookies are set by the site you are visiting.
- Third-party cookies are set by a third party site separate from the site you are visiting. We try to provide more information about each third party cookie in our Cookies Center.
We may use the terms "cookies" or "similar technologies" interchangeably in our policies to refer to all technologies that we may use to store data in your browser or device or that collect information or help us identify you.
What Types of Cookies Do We Use?
We describe the categories of cookies which may be used by or on behalf of Lonza Group on its websites. Please note, that not all of the listed cookies are used on all of Lonza Group's websites.
These cookies are necessary to the operation of our sites, services, applications, and tools. They are sometimes called ‘Essential Cookies’. This includes technologies that allow you access to our sites, services, applications, and tools, that are required to identify irregular site behaviour, prevent fraudulent activity and improve security, or that allow you to make use of our functions, saved search, or similar functions.
You can see the required cookies that Lonza uses by visiting our Cookies Center and clicking on Required Cookies
Lonza uses Functional Cookies which are identified in the Functional Cookies section of our Cookies Center. To access that click on Manage Choices, then Functional Cookies. That will then give you a list of the Functional Cookies that we use.
You will also see that we use various Amazon services and that Lonza also uses Amazon Web Services (AWS). Again, Amazon may consolidate the data it holds across its various platforms including AWS.
The Functional Cookies we use include cookies from Cloudflare, Inc. The Data Protection Authority in Portugal has expressed concerns about Cloudflare cookies. You can read more about those concerns here https://bit.ly/schremsport.
Advertising Cookies are used by advertising companies to serve personalised ads more relevant to your interests. The company’s behind them may also share information with other people including social networks and they may record your interactions with some of the ads - for example, because that might be part of their agreement with the advertiser or because they are paid in relation to the number of people who click on or see the ads.
Again, the advertising cookies on Lonza Group websites include cookies from Google – please see our comments about Google above. There are also Facebook cookies and cookies from LinkedIn who again may aggregate the data that they obtain from these cookies with other data they hold on you.
- You can visit the Cookies Center to set your preference and to disable Functional Cookies and Advertising Cookies.
- You can click on the ‘Reject All’ button on our website to disable Functional Cookies and Advertising Cookies.
- If you do not want to accept any cookies, you may be able to set your web browser to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to your browser. If your browser is set to reject cookies, websites that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the website, and some website functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser may tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies. To find out more about cookies, visit https://www.aboutcookies.org.
- In our Cookies Center we have listed the names of the cookies themselves and their source so that you can easily identify and disable them if you want to through your browser controls.
After your initial visit to the website we may change the cookies we use. Our Cookies Center will always allow you to know who is placing cookies, for what purpose and give you the means to not accept them through our Cookies Center or otherwise disable them so you should check it from time to time.
In addition to the cookies shown in our Cookies Center, we use technologies that store information in your browser or device using local shared objects or local storage, such as flash cookies, HTML 5 cookies, and other web application software methods. These are used to enhance your user experience, for example, by storing your user preferences and settings. These technologies are similar to browser cookies, but can store more complex data than simple text. They can operate across all of your browsers, and in some instances may not be fully managed by your browser and may require management directly through your installed applications or device. We do not use these technologies for storing information to target advertising to you on or off our sites. To find out more about local shared objects or how to disable them, please click here http://helpx.adobe.com/flash-player/kb/disable-local-shared-objects-flash.html.
