This Cookie Policy (this “Cookie Policy”) sets forth the cookie and tracking policies and practices of AmerisourceBergen Corporation (“AmerisourceBergen”), its subsidiaries, affiliates, service providers and advertising partners as they relate to your use and interaction with the AmerisourceBergen.com web site (the “Web Site”), which allow us to distinguish you from other users of our Web Site. Our use of cookies and tracking technologies on our website allow us to (i) provide you a better experience while you browse our Web Site and (ii) improve the Web Site.

This Cookie Policy sets forth the minimum standards and principles which we adhere to in all countries in which we are based. Where there are additional requirements for particular countries or regions, we may also provide you with additional modules which you should read in connection with this Cookie Policy.

What are cookies and tracking technologies?

(a) Cookies

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers sent by a website to your computer or mobile device where it is stored by your browser if you agree. Cookies contain information which enables a website to recognize you as you move around the site and/or each time you revisit.  Cookies may be sent by the website that you are visiting or by another organization which provides services to that website, such as an advertising network or analytics company.

(b) Web beacons and other tracking technologies

Web beacons are small bits of code that communicate with third parties and are embedded in web pages, ads or in emails. Web beacons and other tracking technologies, such as gif, page tags and script, are often used together with web browser cookies to help website publishers to better analyze and improve their services and to target advertising based on your browsing behavior and interests.

Our use of cookies

We use a variety of types of cookies and other tracking technologies for the following purposes:

Strictly necessary cookies. These are cookies that are required for the operation of our Web Site. They include, for example, cookies that enable you to log into secure areas of our Web Site, use a shopping cart or make use of e-billing services.

Analytical/performance cookies. These are cookies that allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors and to see how visitors move around our Web Site when they are using it.  This helps us to improve the way our Web Site works, for example, by ensuring that users are finding what they are looking for easily.

Functionality cookies. These are used to recognize you when you return to our Web Site.  This enables us to personalize our content for you, greet you by name and remember your preferences (e.g., your choice of language or region).

Targeting cookies. These cookies record your visit to our Web Site, the pages you have visited and the links you have followed. We will use this information to make our Web Site and the advertising displayed on it more relevant to your interests. We may also share this information with third parties for this purpose.

You can find more information about the individual cookies we use and the purposes for which we use them in the table below:

Cookie
ASP Net Standard Session Cookie

Name
ASP.Net_SessionId

Purpose
This cookie is the default one used by ASPNET to uniquely identify the user's session on the site and relates the user's unique session to server-side data. The AmerisourceBergen application uses the session to track the user's progress in wizards or for passing data which cannot be stored locally.

More information
This cookie will expire at the end of the session (when you close your internet browser).

Cookie
Gated Content Form

Name
<ID of the page> (this is not a static value, the ID of the page is stored as a GUID. The value of the cookie is set to true. For example, the name could be "{23E8ADCE-5558-40BA-84D5-7784A4B0B7BD}" and the value will be "true"

Purpose
This cookie ensures a user does not see the Gated Content form after they have already submitted it. This allows them to immediately see the content of the page instead of the form again.

More information
This cookie persists for the entirety of the user’s session. Once the user closes the browser, this cookie is removed.

Please note that third parties (including, for example, advertising networks and providers of external services like web traffic analysis services) may also use cookies, over which we have no control. One such example is Google Analytics, as described in the Privacy Statement at www.amerisourcebergen.com/Privacy-Statement.
