Gilead partakes in the Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information (e.g. Cookies):

Gilead may collect information about your visits to the Website without you actively submitting such information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your computer's hard disk by a website. Web beacons (also referred to as GIF files, pixels, or internet tags) help Gilead understand how you navigate around the Website.

As part of your use of the Website, your internet browser automatically transmits to the Website some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the website you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of Gilead Websites easier by allowing Gilead to provide better service, customise the Website based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyse trends, and otherwise administer and improve the Website. Certain features of the Website may not work without the use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identify you without additional identifiable information and Gilead will not match additional identifiable information with information collected through the use of such tracking technologies. With respect to limiting or disabling tracking technology please see the section below entitled, "What choices do I have about how Gilead Websites collect and use Personal Information about me?"

The cookies used on the Website are as follows:

What choices do I have about how Gilead Websites collect and use Personal Information about me?

You may be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want the Website to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to "remember" your Personal Information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, Gilead websites that use tracking technologies to collect unidentifiable information do not generally provide you with the ability to opt-out of the tracking technologies. Some internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentifiable information, such as a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) setting.
