Cookies Policy


Our website (“Website”) uses session and persistent first and third-party cookies and similar technologies to track our users for analytics, advertising and security purposes, and to set their preferences.

First party cookies refer to cookies that are set by our Website. We are the only ones with access to this information. Third party cookies or requests allow other third parties to have access to the information collected. These cookies are usually used for analytics and advertising. For example, Google Analytics works through third party requests.

A session cookie is one that exists for the period that your browser is open. A persistent cookie is one that is saved on your device/computer even after the browser is closed.  Like many websites, we may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. 

Note that our systems may not recognize “Do Not Track” (DNT) headers from some or all browsers.



Cookies are files that are downloaded on your computer or mobile device when you visit certain websites.   Cookies allow a website to complete certain functions such as identifying a user session, recall your preferences (e.g. language), gather information about your browsing habits, or show you advertising based on your preferences.

MEI Pharma uses cookies to allow you to securely navigate the site and set your preferences, and we ask your consent for using cookies for analytics or advertising purposes (non-essential cookies). However, you can withdraw your consent at any time. For additional information see section for YOUR CHOICES below. The following describes why we use cookies. 

Aggregated Data: We collect aggregate queries for internal reporting through the use of cookies such as Google Analytics. The data collected counts, tracks, and aggregates the Website visitor’s activity into MEI Pharma’s analysis of general traffic flow at the Website.  To these ends, MEI Pharma may merge information about you such as IP addresses, page URL and titles and location into anonymized aggregated group data and statistical information.  Such anonymous, group data may be shared with MEI Pharma’s business partners. If it does so, MEI Pharma will not disclose your individual identity. 

Web Server Logs and IP Addresses:  An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a number that automatically identifies the computer or device you have used to access the internet. The IP address enables our server to send you the web pages that you want to visit, and it may disclose the server owned by your internet service provider. MEI Pharma may use IP addresses to conduct website analyses and performance reviews and to administer the Website, although it will not combine traffic data with user accounts and the visitor’s IP addresses are anonymized. Google Analytics cookies will utilize IP addresses when you visit our Website. 

Web Beacons:  Some of the Website’s web pages such as our page may use web beacons in conjunction with cookies to compile aggregate statistics about website usage.  A web beacon is an electronic image (also referred to as an “action tag,” “single-pixel,” or “clear GIF”) that is commonly used to track the traffic patterns of users from one web page to another in order to maximize web traffic flow and to otherwise analyze the effectiveness of a website.  Some web beacons may be unusable if you elect to reject their associated cookies.



Our Website uses cookies for security, analytics and advertising purposes, and to set users’ preferences. Information captured through their use is stored for a certain retention period. However, you can eliminate these cookies any time before the expiration date.
