What is a cookie?Cookies are small data files that we may transfer to your device to collect information about your use of our Services to help us understand you better. Cookies can be recognized by the website that downloaded them or other websites that use the same cookies. This helps websites know if your browsing device has visited them before.
We allow selected third parties to place cookies through our Services to provide us with better insights into the use of the websites and more. Cookies on our Services that are supplied by us are called “first-party cookies,” while cookies on our Services that are provided by third parties are called the “third-party cookies.” Third-party cookies are operated by third parties that can recognize your device across the Internet, such as when you visit other websites or mobile apps. Fulgent does not control how third-party cookies are used, and we encourage you to check the websites of any third-party cookie providers for more information about how they use cookie information.
Are cookies “personal information”?Some cookies are used to collect anonymous information on the pages visited; while others may collect IP addresses, user IDs, or similar identifiers that are considered personal information by local law. Certain laws and regulations, to the extent they apply to you, treat cookies as personal information in certain circumstances. Examples of such laws are California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Fulgent generally treats data collected by cookies and other tracking technologies as non-personal information. However, in instances where the applicable law recognizes such information as personal, we treat the cookie information with identifiers as personal information. If we combine non-personal information with personal information, then the combined information will be treated as personal information for as long as it remains combined.
