Cookies and Tracking Technologies

We receive IP addresses in the normal course of the operation of our Website. An IP address is a number assigned to you by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet.

We, as well as third parties that provide content, advertising, or other functionality on our Services, may use cookies, pixel tags, local storage, and other technologies (“Technologies”) to automatically collect information through the Services. We use Technologies that are essentially small data files placed on your computer, tablet, mobile phone, or other devices (referred to collectively as a “device”) that allow us to record certain pieces of information whenever you visit or interact with our sites, services, applications, messaging, and tools, and to recognize you across devices.

Cookies: A cookie is a piece of data or file that a website can send to your browser, which may then store it on your computer system. Most browsers allow you to block and delete cookies. However, if you do that, the Site may not work properly or you may not be able to receive personalized content. Xogene may use cookies on our Website in order to: provide access to our content: for example, allow you to personalize your experience by keeping you logged in, accessing information, products, and services relevant to your areas of interest; and analyze and improve your browsing experience: for example, to track your session within our website, so we can learn what content has interested you. We will also use cookies to understand general information about you, such as areas of interest. We also check for bugs and glitches in the content and prevent duplication: for example, when voting or participating in surveys.

 

Pixel tags/Web beacons: A pixel tag (also known as a web beacon) is a piece of code embedded on the Site that collects information about users’ engagement on that web page. The use of a pixel allows us to record, for example, that a user has visited a particular web page or clicked on a particular advertisement.

Social Media Features: Our Website includes social media integrations such as the Facebook “Like” button and LinkedIn (that might include widgets such as the share this button or other interactive mini-programs). These features may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly. These social media features are either hosted by a third party or hosted directly on our Site. Your interactions with these features are governed by the privacy policy of the company providing it.
