To make this website work properly, the European Medicines Agency (EMA) sometimes places small data files called cookies on your device. Most big websites do this too. You can decide to not be tracked by these cookies and can delete them at any time.

A cookie is a small data file that a website asks your web browser to store on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions over a period of time. For more information, see European Commission: cookies.

How does EMA use cookies?

By default, clinical data website visitors are tracked using cookies called 'first-party session cookies'.

'First party' means that EMA retains full responsibility and control of the data collected through these cookies, by storing the data in servers fully owned and controlled by EMA. These data will not be shared with any other organisations for marketing, market research or commercial purposes.

'Session' means that these cookies are automatically removed from the user’s device when the user closes the browser window.

The data collected using this type of cookie contain no personal information and cannot be used to identify a particular visitor.

For more information on different types of cookie, see European Commission: cookies.
