For what purposes do we use cookies?

We use cookies on our website and any sub-domain to create the most secure and effective website possible for our visitors. Cookies may be used to help speed up your future activities and experience on our website. We also use cookies to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics that allow us to understand how people use our site and to help us improve the structure and content.

This Cookie Policy explains what cookies are, how we use them and what benefits they bring as well as how you can delete cookies.

What are cookies and what types of cookies do we use?

A cookie is a small text file that is sent to and stored on your computer, smartphone or other device for accessing the internet, whenever you visit a website. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognise a user's device and remember specific information about your session while you are connected. LEO Pharma use cookies on their QualityCare™ sites for a variety of reasons, such as to determine preferences, let users navigate between pages efficiently, verify the user and carry out other essential security checks.

Cookies by themselves cannot be used to discover the identity of the user, and they do not in any way damage your computer.

You can read more specifically about the different types of cookies used on this site in table below. More information about cookies in general can also be found on allaboutcookies.org.

Type of Cookie  What do they do?  Do these cookies collect my personal data / identify me?
Session Cookies These cookies are essential to make the QualityCare™ website work correctly, as they enable you to move around our website and use our features.

Examples include remembering previous actions (e.g. entered text) when navigating back to a page in the same session.
Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your device until you leave the QualityCare™ site. These cookies don’t identify you as an individual.

If you do not accept these cookies, it may affect the performance of the website, or parts of it.
Persistent Cookies Persistent cookies help our site remember your information and settings when you visit them in the future. This results in faster and more convenient access since, for example, you don't have to login again. A persistent cookie remains on your device for much longer or until you manually delete it (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or "lifetime" of the specific cookie and your browser settings).

Technical cookies

Sitecore uses a session cookie (SC_ANALYTICS_SESSION_COOKIE) and a permanent cookie (SC_ANALYTICS_GLOBAL_COOKIE) to handle its internal analytics tracking.

A session cookie (ASP.NET_SessionId) is used to identify the active session, and a session or permanent cookie (. ASPXAUTH) to store user login.

The Add this (share) function uses a permanent cookie to the following:
The __atuvc cookie is created and read by our JavaScript on the client side in order to make sure the user sees the updated count if they share a page and return to it before our share count cache is updated.

Finally, we use a Google Analytics cookie, further information can be seen here:
