Cookie policy


This Cookie Policy explains how Geron Corporation (“Geron”, “we”, “us” or “our”) uses cookies and similar tracking technologies when you visit our website at www.geron.com or any other site that links to this Cookie Policy (the “Sites”).

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer when you visit a site. Cookies serve different purposes, like helping us understand how a site is being used, letting you navigate between pages efficiently, remembering your preferences, and generally improving your browsing experience.  

Who places cookies on my device?

Cookies set by the site you visit are called “first party cookies”. Cookies set by parties other than us are called “third party cookies”.  Third party cookies enable third party features or functionality within the site such as analytics features. The parties that set these third party cookies can recognize your computer or device both when it visits the site in question and also when it visits certain other sites and/or mobile apps. We do not control how these third parties use your information, which is subject to their own privacy policies. See below for details on use of third party cookies and similar technologies with our Sites.  

How long will cookies stay on my device?

The length of time a cookie will stay on your device depends on whether it is a “persistent” or “session” cookie. Session cookies will only stay on your device until you stop browsing. Persistent cookies stay on your browsing device after you have finished browsing until they expire or are deleted.

What other tracking technologies should I know about?

Cookies are not the only way to track visitors to a site or app. Companies may use tiny graphics files with unique identifiers called beacons (and also “pixels” or “clear gifs”) to recognize when someone visits its sites. These technologies often depend on cookies to function properly, and so disabling cookies may impair their functioning.

Your choices

Most browsers let you remove or reject cookies. To do this, follow the instructions in your browser settings.  Many browsers accept cookies by default until you change your settings. Please note that if you set your browser to disable cookies, the Sites may not work properly. 

For more information about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set on your computer or mobile device and how to manage and delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.

For more information about how we collect, use and share your information, see our Privacy Policy.

Cookies We Use

 

Cookie List

A cookie is a small piece of data (text file) that a website – when visited by a user – asks your browser to store on your device in order to remember information about you, such as your language preference or login information. Those cookies are set by us and called first-party cookies. We also 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. More specifically, we use cookies and other tracking technologies for the following purposes:

Performance cookies

These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see how visitors move around the site. If you do not allow these cookies we will not know when you have visited our site, and will not be able to monitor its performance.
