About Cookies

Introduction and Scope

This Cookie Notice (the “POLICY”) is designed to assist you in understanding how and why Olink Proteomics AB and its wholly owned subsidiaries (WE, US, or OUR) uses cookies and other similar technologies (COOKIES) to collect personal data on our website (https://olink.com/) and any of our linked or attached web pages (collectively, the WEBSITE). This Cookie Notice applies to the websites that we own or control and which post a link to this Cookies Notice.

What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small text file stored on your device that contains information about your browser and online activity. Our Website may also employ a software technology called clear GIFs (a.k.a. web beacons) that helps us better manage content on our Website by informing us what content is effective. Clear GIFs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Website users. We may also use local shared objects (a.k.a. flash cookies), pixels, or other similar technologies. All of these tracking technologies are collectively referred to as Cookies in this Policy.

Why do we use Cookies?

We use Cookies to allow our Website to operate, increase its functionality and efficiency, analyze how you use it so that we can improve it, tailor the content and information that we display to you, and provide you with targeted advertisements. This Policy also explains how you can opt out of Cookies if you are protected by certain data protection and privacy laws, such as the laws implementing the e-Privacy Directive in the European Economic Area (EEA).

To the extent that information collected by the Cookies constitutes personal data (on its own or if combined with other information) protected by one applicable data protection or privacy law, our Privacy Policy https://olink.com/about-us/integrity-policy/ shall apply to the processing of such personal data, as defined in the privacy policy.

  • Third party cookies – Third-party cookies are cookies that are set by a domain name other than the one being visited by the user. Other parties, such as Marketo or Google, may also set their own (third-party) Cookies through our Website. Those third parties may collect information about your online activities over time and across different Internet websites or online services. Please refer to these third parties’ privacy policies to learn more about the way in which they collect and process information about you.

Performance and functionality cookies

Marketing and Targeted Advertising Cookies

Marketing cookies collect information such as which pages you visit on our Website, and how you arrived at our Website. Collected information is used to evaluate the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns or to provide better targeting for marketing. They perform functions like preventing the same ad from continuously reappearing, ensuring that ads are properly displayed for advertisers, and in some cases selecting advertisements that are based on your interests.

Marketing and targeted advertising cookies

You may also control your online behavioral advertising preferences and opt out from having your data processed by certain marketing companies by visiting https://www.youronlinechoices.com/ and https://optout.aboutads.info/ Please note that managing these preferences will not turn off internet advertisements in general. You will receive the same number of advertisements, but it will be less reflective of your interests, as based on your web browsing habits. The preferences that you set, including your opt out requests, may be stored in Cookies that are specific to your browser. If your browser is configured to block Cookies, our tool may not be able to store your preferences.

In addition, deleting Cookies on this browser may result in your preferences being removed. If your preferences are removed after you delete cookies from this browser, you will have to update these preferences again. Also, remember that private browsing technologies (such as incognito mode) automatically delete all local storage and Cookies when the browsing session ends, preventing us from recording your choice made during the session; and preventing us from accessing any local storage created outside of the current session, which does not enable us to access the choice you made during a normal or previous private browsing session.

We will only store your preferences in this browser. Because some companies may not connect information about this browser with other web browsers or devices you may use (such as a web browser on another computer you may use, or one on a mobile device), you need to update your preferences by accessing our Cookie consent management tool above to set your preferences separately for other browsers or devices you may use.

To see descriptions of these cookies or to change you Cookies consent preferences, please visit our Cookies Settings found in the footer of this webpage.

Changes to this Policy

If we make any material change to this Policy, we will post the revised Policy to our Website and update the “Effective Date” above to reflect the date on which the new Policy became effective.


In case of any queries, please contact our Data Protection Officer at integrity@olink.com. Please note that you have the right to file a complaint with the competent Data Protection Authority.
