Information we collect about you
General. You may visit our Web site without providing us with any personal information. But if you choose to register for services on our Web site or interact with us in any way, we may collect "personally identifiable information" from you. Examples of such personal information include, but are not limited to, your name, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number, facsimile number, and other similar information. We may also offer services and features through our Web site that request certain health-related information about you, and we may collect information about your use of our product. In addition, if you send us an e-mail message or otherwise communicate with us, we may collect information you choose to provide to us in that context. Finally, if you are a professional, in addition to the above, we may collect information about your professional background, practice, and area of specialization.
Information from other sources. We may also periodically obtain information about you from other sources. If you are a physician or other health care professional, for example, we may collect information from other sources to validate your licensure status, identity or other similar information. From time to time, we may also decide to increase the level of information we collect and store in our database by asking third parties to obtain more information on users of our product. If and when we do so, it is to provide you with more relevant information relating to our product or to better target our future promotional efforts.
Internet tracking technologies. We may, from time to time, use computer or Internet-based technologies to help us collect and store additional data about your system or your use of our Web site. This information includes but may not be limited to the IP address used to connect your computer to the Internet, information about your browser type and language, the date and time you are accessing our site, and the referring website address. We may also use "cookies" or other similar technologies to facilitate your access and ongoing use of our Web site. How We Use The Information We Collect We will not sell, disclose or otherwise share your personal information with any third party except as provided below or with your express authorization. We primarily intend to use the information you provide to us to communicate with you in the future about our product. We may also use information that we collect about you to respond to your requests for information; obtain feedback or perform research and analysis about usage of, and potential interest in, our product, related services, or information we communicate to you from time to time; develop content and promotional materials tailored to your interests; enforce the Terms and Conditions of Use applicable to the access and use of our Web site; and perform functions or activities otherwise described to you at the time of collection. In addition, if you contact us to report on the use of our product, we may use the information you provide us to submit reports to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or other similar health agencies. We may also use the information to contact the prescribing physician to follow up on unexpected events involving the use of our product.
