- Contact Information
Information Collected Directly from You. We may collect personal information from you when you fill in online forms on our Site, such as when you correspond with us through the Contact Us form on our Site, sign up to receive INVIDI newsletters or alerts, or otherwise request information from us. The information we may collect includes:
- contact information, such as your name, email address, phone number, and postal address (“contact information“); and/or
- marketing and communications information, such as your preferences in receiving marketing messages, product and service offers, newsletters and alerts, and other communications from us (“marketing and communications information“).
Information Collected Automatically. As you navigate through and interact with our Site, your device or browser may automatically send us certain information, which may include:
- technical information, such as your IP address, browser type and version, information about your operating system, and information about the device you use to access the Site, such as device identification number and device type (“technical information“); and/or
- usage information, such as “clickstream” information and other information about how you use our Site (“usage information“).
2. Use and Disclosure
We may use your personal information to offer and provide you with our services and products, communicate with you, send you marketing messages or offers, send you newsletters or alerts, and/or to conduct other business operations. We may also use your personal information to administer and improve the Site, conduct internal operations, comply with applicable legal or other obligations, and to exercise or defend legal claims.
We may disclose the personal information we collect or you provide as described in this Policy:
- with any member of our corporate group, including our subsidiaries and affiliates, for internal purposes, such as internal administration and to provide you with certain services and offerings;
- with our business partners, suppliers, service providers, subcontractors, and other third parties we use to support our business, such as those that provide email services, fraud prevention, web hosting, or analytic services;
- in the event of merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which case we may disclose your personal information to the prospective seller or buyer of our business or assets;
We may also use and share personal information to fulfill any purpose for which you provide it, for any purpose that we disclose when you provide the data, and/or with your consent. We may use and share non-personal information without restriction.
- Essential cookies enable you to navigate our Site and to use our services and features. Without these cookies, our Site will not perform as smoothly for you as we would like, and we may not be able to provide certain core functions and features.
- Analytics cookies collect information about the use of our Site and enable us to improve the way it works. For example, analytics cookies show us the most frequently visited pages and analyze site traffic. We use them to look at overall patterns of usage on the site, rather than the usage of any particular individual.
- Marketing cookies track browsing habits and are used to deliver targeted (interest-based) advertising. You can opt out of receiving interest-based ads for web properties here (Digital Advertising Alliance’s WebChoices) and here (Network Advertising Initiative Opt-out).
Most browsers are set up to accept cookies automatically. You can deactivate the storing of cookies or adjust your browser to inform you before the cookie is stored on your computer. Some browsers have “do not track” features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform. We do not currently respond to those signals.
You can ask us to stop sending you marketing messages and other email publications, such as newsletters or alerts, by following the opt-out or unsubscribe links on any such communication sent to you or by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that, if you opt out of receiving such messages, we may still send you emails about other services, products or offerings you have requested or received from us.
5. Security and Retention
We use reasonable security measures designed to protect personal information collected through our Site. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. As such, we cannot guarantee the security of your personal information transmitted to the Site.
We will retain your personal information in a manner consistent with our internal records management policies and procedures reflecting the purposes for which we collected the data and our obligations under any applicable legal, regulatory, tax, accounting or reporting requirements.
6. Children’s Privacy
We do not direct our Site to minors and we do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If we learn that an under-13 user has volunteered personal information on the Site, we will delete such information from our active databases.
7. Supplemental Information for California Residents
