Cookie Policy

Like many other websites, our website uses cookies. Some of the cookies we use are essential for the site to work. We also use some non-essential cookies to collect information about how visitors use our site so that we can make informed decisions about improvements to the site and get a good understanding of the kind of content our visitors like to read.

What Are Cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are placed on your browser or your computer when you visit our site. They do not affect your device, but are widely used in order to make websites work, or work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the site. Cookies can be used to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Cookies may contain a unique identification code that makes it possible to track the user's navigation of the site for statistical, advertising, and technical purposes. While they allow us to see patterns in visitor behavior, they do not allow us to identify you specifically, and they collect information in an anonymous form.

How Illumina Uses Cookies

We classify and use cookies in the following ways:

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies

    These are cookies that are required for the operation of our website. We use these cookies to, for example, to enable you to log into secure areas of our website, use a shopping cart, and help the content of a page load quickly and effectively. These cookies are essential for the website to function and will be set regardless of whether you allow other cookies. These cookies do not store any personally identifiable information.

  • Performance Cookies

    We use these cookies to allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our website when they are using it. This helps us to improve the way our website works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily. Personal information is not collected by this type of cookie and information is processed in an aggregated and anonymous fashion.

  • Functional Cookies

    These are used to recognize you when you return to our website. This enables us to personalize our content for you, and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).

We may also use this data to improve the targeting of our advertising, such as by showing adverts on third-party websites to users who have previously visited our website.

  • Third Party Cookies

    We use third party cookies – which are cookies from a domain different than the domain of the website you are visiting – for our advertising and marketing efforts. These third party cookies are likely to be performance, functional, or targeting cookies.
