Qualicaps® developed this Internet Privacy Statement to provide information about our practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide when you visit this Website. This privacy statement applies to this website and other Qualicaps® websites providing resources such as consumer and health care professional product related information and services.

Information Voluntarily Provided by Users
You can visit much of the Website without telling us who you are or providing us with other personally identifiable information. Some areas of the Website allow you to contact us to ask questions or provide comments. When you communicate with us and request a response, we ask for your name and contact information. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes. Some areas of the Website may also require that you submit information in order to access specific content, features, interactive tools, services or participate in a particular activity. For example, to create an online account, online user profile or to subscribe to a newsletter, we may ask for your name, contact information, professional credentials and other additional information so we can complete your request. You may always choose not to provide the required information, but then you may not be able to participate in the particular activity that requires the information.
Use and Disclosure of Your Personally Identifiable Information
We may personalize and customize this Website with references to products and/or services that we believe may be of interest to you, based on your previous interactions, information you have provided to us, or information about you that we have collected from 3rd party sources. For non-healthcare providers and consumers, if you do opt-in and provide us with personally identifiable information such as your name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number, or other information, such as your education level or medical information, you agree that this information may be provided to other parties that Qualicaps® is working with, including but not limited to its subsidiaries and affiliates, and that Qualicaps® and such other parties may contact you through a variety of means such as postal mail, phone, or e-mail to provide you with programs, services and educational information we believe may be of interest to you unless you opt out of these communications by contacting us as indicated below. Except as provided in the Transfer of Control section, Qualicaps® will not sell or rent your personally identifiable information. In addition, as stated in the Transfer of Control section, your personally identifiable information may be shared with actual or potential parties to a contemplated transaction where we decide to reorganize or divest part or all of a business or a line of our business, without obtaining your consent or any further notice to you. In such circumstances, we will seek written assurances that personally identifiable information submitted through this website will be protected appropriately. For healthcare professionals, we may contact you through a variety of means such as postal mail, phone, or e-mail to provide you with information and offers we believe may be of interest to you unless you opt out of these communications by contacting us as indicated below. Also, if you do not opt out of these communications, we may also share this information with providers of services to Qualicaps® who help Qualicaps® to develop programs and provide services that may be of interest to you, or for information processing, mailing, and/or Internet-based delivery purposes. From time to time we may obtain from 3rd party sources personally identifiable information on physicians and other healthcare professionals. This information is used to verify such things as professional status, identity and specialty when providing tailored information, communications or products/and or services. Qualicaps® has established a set of binding corporate rules (BCR) ensuring that personal data from the European Economic Area (EEA) is adequately protected while being processed by Qualicaps®.
Use and Disclosure of Non-Personally Identifiable Information Qualicaps® will not treat as confidential any information that you provide that is not personally identifiable, such as questions, comments, ideas, or suggestions. You should be aware that Qualicaps® will be free to disclose through any means and use for any purpose such information in its sole discretion. By providing such information to Qualicaps®, you understand and agree that no relationship has been created between Qualicaps® and you, and Qualicaps® has no obligation to you whatsoever regarding that information.

Update and Correction of Personally Identifiable Information
You may contact us to update or correct much of your personally identifiable information that you provide to us through the Website other than the limited information described below under the Regulatory Requirements section, or to opt-out from our mailings and other services and communications that you may have signed up for.

We take reasonable precautions to maintain the protection of personally identifiable information collected through this Website and used in accordance with this Privacy Statement. In addition to technical safeguards, we also use physical controls and procedures to safeguard your personally identifiable information. However, we cannot guarantee that it is completely secure from people who might attempt to evade our security measures or intercept transmissions over the Internet.
Online Behavioral Advertising
We may tailor online advertisements to you by matching offers to a summary of your interests. Your interests could come from several sources including your browsing activity and your response to online advertisements. In such circumstances 3rd parties collect and store data about your interests and online activity. When you see a Qualicaps® online advertisement, you can click on the "Ad Choices" icon within the advertisement which will take you to a page where you can learn more about online behavioral advertising and manage, or opt out of the targeting technology from the 3rd parties who collect your data. If you opt out, you may still see advertisements online, including advertisements from Qualicaps® brands. In some cases, data may still be collected about your browsing activity by these 3rd parties but they will not use this information to select advertisements you see online.
Web Server Data Collection and IP Addresses
With or without cookies, our Website keeps track of usage data, such as the source address that a page request is coming from (i.e., your IP address, domain name), date and time of the page request, the referring Website (if any), and other parameters in the URL (e.g., search criteria). We use this data to better understand Website usage on the whole and to determine which areas of our Website users prefer (e.g., based on the number of visits to those areas). This information is stored and used by Qualicaps® for statistical reporting. In some cases, to provide you better tailored programs and information, we may collect and consolidate your online information, and match it with personally identifiable information collected from other resources and programs. We may work with 3rd parties to help us with these activities.
Transfer of Control
Circumstances may arise where we decide to reorganize or divest part or all of our business or of a line of our business, including our information databases and Websites, through a sale, divestiture, merger, acquisition, or other means of transfer. In any such circumstance, personally identifiable information may be shared with, sold, transferred, rented, licensed or otherwise provided or made available by us or on our behalf to actual or potential parties to, and in connection with, the contemplated transaction (without your consent or any further notice to you). In such circumstances, we will seek written assurances that personally identifiable information submitted through this Website will be protected appropriately.
In rare situations, we may be required by court order or other legal or regulatory process, or as otherwise required by law to divulge personally identifiable information to law enforcement authorities, the courts, or regulatory authorities. Qualicaps® will cooperate in responding to such requests, in accordance with the regulatory or legal process, and will take appropriate measures to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of any health-related personally identifiable information they receive.
