This Cookie Policy describes our practices regarding the collection of information through cookies and similar technologies (like gifs, web beacons, etc.). For more information on their functionalities and the purposes for which we use these technologies, please review our Privacy Statement

First and third-party cookies and similar technologies  

Please note that we distinguish “first-party” and “third-party” cookies and similar technologies. The difference between a “first-party technology” and a “third-party technology” relates to who places the cookie. When Miltenyi sets the technology, it is considered a “first-party technology”. Third-party technologies are set by third. 

We may allow third parties to place cookies and similar technologies in the following scenarios: 

  • Companies that act as our service provider (e.g. providing analytic services) place cookies when you visit our websites;
  • Companies that deliver content, features or tools (e.g. videos, maps, communication tools, etc.) on our Services place cookies on their own;
  • Companies that provide conversation-tracking technologies and retargeting functionality to provide interest-based advertisement.

Unless such third parties act as our services provider, we do not control the data processing conducted by such third-party technologies, nor do we retain access to this information. This information is controlled wholly by that third party according to the respective privacy policy of the third party.
