In general, you may visit the Site without telling us who you are or revealing any personally identifiable information about you. Our servers collect the domain names, operating system in use (e.g., Macintosh, Windows) and browser (e.g., Netscape, Internet Explorer). This information is aggregated to measure the number of visits, average time spent on the Site, pages viewed, etc. Ferring Pharmaceuticals uses this information to measure the use of our Site and to improve the content of our Site. E-mail addresses and other personally identifiable information such as first and last name, telephone number, and other similar information are known only when voluntarily provided by a visitor for registration or other participation of visitors in any available online interactive activities.
Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, phone number, e-mail address or any other information which might reasonably be used to identify you individually. Ferring collects personally identifiable information from website visitors only when it is voluntarily provided. Ferring will not otherwise collect this information from you on our website.
At those portions of our website where we provide you with the option to input personally identifiable information, we notify you of the uses we intend to make of that information in any given instance. When Ferring receives personally identifiable information, we may use it for reasonable business purposes, just as non-Internet businesses do. For example, we may use this information to contact you, via e-mail or regular mail, to provide you with information we believe may be of interest. It might also be used for compiling data and analyses to understand and serve our customers’ needs. Data is also compiled to evaluate the use and utility of the services we provide on-line. Your information may be transferred for processing and use to Ferring facilities in other countries and regions of the world. Personally identifiable information will not be sold, rented or exchanged outside of Ferring unless the user is first notified and expressly consents to such transfer.
Use of your Information
We may use the personal information you provide for any of the following purposes:
(1) to understand the use of our Site and make improvements;
(2) to respond to specific requests from visitors;
(3) to protect the security or integrity of our Site when necessary;
(4) to send you notices and solicitations regarding Site and our businesses; and
(5) in general to promote and market products to you.
These solicitations may take the form of mailings or other couriers, telephone calls, e-mail solicitations and other methods of contact. If you do not want to receive these solicitations from us using your personally identifiable information, please notify us.
At times, we may conduct online surveys to better understand the needs and profiles of our visitors. When we conduct a survey, we will try to let you know how we will use the information at the time we collect the information from you on the Internet.”
