This website is provided by Biocomposites Ltd. We take the privacy of our website users and the security of their personal information very seriously.
Your use of this website indicates to us that you have read and accept our privacy practices, as outlined in this Privacy Statement. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this Privacy Statement, please email us through the “Contact Us” link on the website.
WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT YOU DO WE COLLECT?
When you visit our website, you may provide us with two types of information: (1) personally identifiable information that you knowingly choose to disclose, which is collected on an individual basis, and (2) general user information that does not contain personally identifiable information, which is collected on an aggregate basis as you browse the website. In some cases, if you choose not to provide us with requested information, you may not be able to access all of our website’s content or services.
Personally identifiable information you choose to provide
We may ask for certain personal information from you for the purpose of providing to you content and/or services that you request. For example, if you indicate an interest in receiving a clinical paper, you are asked to submit your name and e-mail address, which we retain on file, so that we may send you the information that you requested. We also request your name and e-mail address each time you contact us by clicking on the "Contact Us" link. We may retain a record of users who have contacted us in order to respond properly to questions or concerns and for purposes of future communications.
Non-personally identifiable information we collect
Cookies / web server logs: Similar to other commercial websites, our website utilises standard technology called "cookies" and web server logs to collect information about how our website is used. Cookies are a feature of web browser software that allows web servers to recognise the computer used to access a web site. Cookies are small pieces of data that are stored by a user’s web browser on the user’s hard drive. Information gathered through cookies and web server logs may include the date and time of visits, the pages viewed, time spent at our website, and the websites visited just before and just after our website. This information is collected on an aggregate basis. None of this information is associated with you as an individual.
You can, of course, disable cookies on your computer by indicating this in the preferences or options menus in your browser. However, it is possible that some parts of our website will not operate correctly if you disable cookies. You should consult with your browser’s provider/manufacturer if you have any questions regarding disabling cookies.
HOW DO WE USE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT?
We use your personally identifiable information to provide you with the information or content that you have requested, and, in some cases, to contact you about our products and services. If you no longer wish to receive information from us, you may send us an email through our "Contact Us" link.
We use non-identifying information collected on our website in the aggregate to better understand your use of the website and to enhance your enjoyment and experience. For example, we may use the information to improve the design and content of our website or to analyse the programs and services that we offer.
We may employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. Our employees, agents and contractors who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect the information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.
We may provide access to your personally identifiable information when legally required to do so, to cooperate with police investigations or other legal proceedings, to protect against misuse or unauthorised use of our website, to limit our legal liability and protect our rights, or to protect the rights and safety of visitors to this website or the public. In those instances, the information is provided only for that limited purpose.
We will not share your personally identifiable information in ways unrelated to those described above without providing you with an opportunity to opt out of such use or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
HOW DO YOU ACCESS AND/OR MODIFY YOUR INFORMATION OR CHOICES?
If you visit our website and volunteer personally identifiable information, you may modify, update or delete such information by clicking on the "Contact Us" link and sending us an e-mail. You should be aware, however, that it is not always possible to completely remove or modify information in our databases. In addition, please be aware that your ability to opt out from receiving marketing and promotional materials does not change our right to contact you regarding your use of our website.
PRIVACY PROTECTIONS FOR CHILDREN USING THE INTERNET
Protecting children’s privacy is important to us. For that reason, we do not collect or maintain information on our website from those we actually know are under the age of 13, nor is any part of our website targeted to attract anyone under 13. We request that all visitors to our website who are under 13 not disclose or provide any personally identifiable information. If we discover that a child under 13 has provided us with personally identifiable information, we will delete that child's personally identifiable information from our records.
We take reasonable steps to maintain the security of the personally identifiable information that we collect, including limiting the number of people who have physical access to our database servers, as well as installing electronic security systems that guard against unauthorised access. However, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. Accordingly, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information that you transmit to us, so you do so at your own risk.
