Cookie policy

Novozymes makes an effort to offer a transparent website with the content that is most relevant to you. In order to do this, we use technologies that can collect, process and sort information regarding how you and other visitors use and the associated sub-domains ("The Website").

Processing personal data by the use of cookies

Novozymes’ use of cookies may include processing of your personal data, and we therefore recommend that you also read our privacy policy here

When you visit the Websites the first time, you are requested to accept our use of cookies by clicking “Accept” on our cookie consent banner. The consent you provide when your tick off the consent box, applies to both the use of cookies and the associated processing of your personal data. You can recall your consent by adjusting the settings below under “Cookie settings” or by clicking the green icon in the lower left side of the Website.

If you accept all cookies, then Novozymes will use cookies as described below, unless you have opted out of cookies in your browser. If you accept only a selection of cookies, then only those cookies will be used.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files, which the Website places on your computer's hard drive, smartphone or other electronic device. Some cookies are necessary to allow for the website to function. This includes features like adding products to a cart, remembering language settings, logging in to the account area. We use cookies to improve the website experience remembering your preferences so that users don't need to re-enter this information each time you visit the websites.

Why does Novozymes use cookies?

Novozymes is dedicated to creating the best user experience and provide the highest level of service. To do this, we use an array of tools for reporting and analytics that collects information on the users. These cookies are used for statistical and reporting purposes and only use pseudonymous cookies for identification.

Listed below in the section ‘Which cookies does Novozymes use and for which purposes?’ are the cookies that Novozymes uses on the Websites as well as the purpose(s) for using the cookies and their expiry.

First-party cookies and Third-party cookies

When you visit the Websites, cookies may be stored on your device, your computer's hard drive, smartphone, or another electronic device by Novozymes (first-party cookies) or by third parties (third-party cookies).

You can read more about this under "Which cookies does Novozymes use and for what purposes?".

You can choose to block third-party cookies in your browser - as mentioned below, or you may have chosen to do so when you visited the Website the first time. There may be functions on the Website that you cannot use if you choose to block third-party cookies in your browser. You will receive an error message that states how you are able to change your settings for third-party cookies, thus enabling you to complete the desired actions.

Types of cookies

Overall, there are four different types of cookies:

  • Strictly necessary cookies are required for the running of a website. These cookies enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling out forms.
  • Functional cookies allow the website to remember choices you make or information you enter (such as your username, language, or the region you are in).
  • Statistical cookies (performance cookies) allow us to analyze the behavior of users on our website so we can count visits and traffic sources to measure and improve the performance of our site. They help us to know which pages are the most and least popular and see if we can better or ease users’ interaction with the site.
  • Marketing cookies (advertising and targeting cookies) are used to deliver adverts on third party websites based on your interests. They also help measure the effectiveness of an advertisement campaign.

These cookies can be broken down into two further sub-types, "temporary" cookies (session-based) and "permanent" cookies. The temporary cookies allow the website to remember a visitor within a website when you move between web pages. This is important when the site functions depending on the user’s activities like using an online webshop, for instance. Session based cookies only last for a session and are thus deleted automatically when you close your web browser.

In contrast, permanent cookies will be stored on your equipment. Permanent cookies delete themselves after a certain period but will be renewed every time you visit the Websites.

How long do cookies survive?

Lifetime of a cookie varies, and you can see the full list of expiry terms for all cookies in the table below. When they expire, they are deleted from your PC. The time when they are scheduled to expire is calculated from the last date you visited the homepage.

How to avoid and delete cookies?

If you do not want Novozymes to place or read cookies on your equipment, you have the possibility of opting out of cookies in your browser, where you can choose which cookies that should be allowed, blocked, or deleted. As user, you need to be aware that the Websites might not function optimally if you delete or block cookies.

You can modify or withdraw your consent to cookies at any time by changing your cookie settings below. Please note that your modification or withdrawal of consent will not delete cookies already placed on your PC.

In case you do not wish to have cookies stored on your PC or if you want your browser to tell you when a cookie is placed, you can easily adjust settings, and remove and manage all cookies installed on your browser by following the instructions from your browser. 

If your browser is not listed above, please do read the documentation from your browser provider to delete and opt-out of cookies in your specific browser.
