You should carefully read this entire Policy before using and/or submitting information on this website.
I. Information Collected
A. Information you provide.
Registration may be necessary to access certain portions of our website. When registering to use our website or its features and services, or to receive emails or other communications from ThromboGenics, you will be asked to provide identifying information. This may include such information as your name, gender, email address, mailing address, and health information. Information that is required for registration will be clearly labeled and distinguished from information that is optional and may be given at your discretion.
We may also collect personal information from you through your participation in the interactive services available on our website, including surveys, questionnaires, comment forms, and submissions related to employment opportunities. Additional information may also be required if you wish to obtain additional services or information, or to resolve complaints or concerns.
Any personal information you provide to ThromboGenics by email (e.g., when you ask questions or report problems with our products) will also be collected. If you communicate with or request information from ThromboGenics personnel, they will retain your email address as well as any health-related and/or personal facts you chose to include in your email communication. If you are reporting an experience or reaction involving one of our products, we may ask you for additional information pursuant to our reporting obligations under existing federal regulations. If you are a medical professional and are using the website for reasons other than reporting a product experience, you should make sure that you do not disclose identifiable information about your patients without a valid authorization.
B. Information collected routinely
Visitors to our website can access the site’s home page, and browse some areas of the site without disclosing any personally identifiable information. However, we do track information provided to us by your browser, including the website you came from, the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. In addition, we gather information about you that is automatically collected by our web server, such as your IP address and domain name.
C. Information from outside sources
We may collect information from other sources about physicians or other health care professionals who register on our website in order to verify their licensure status and identity. We also may ask users for information after they register, such as credit card information for processing of a purchase order. In these instances, we may contact financial or credit organizations to confirm whether the credit card information provided is accurate.
II. Use of Data
B. Product Experiences
If you contact ThromboGenics regarding your personal experiences with one of our pharmaceutical products (investigational or marketed), we may use this information in submitting reports to the Federal Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) pursuant to existing federal regulations. We may also use and disclose the information you provide to our product’s clinical investigators in order to follow up on any unexpected events arising from the use of our products.
C. Career Opportunities.
If you contact ThromboGenics with employment inquiries or other related communications, we may use any personal information you provide to (i) send you an email confirming receipt of your application, (ii) contact you if we need more information related to your employment application, account profile, or employment search, (iii) process your employment application, (iv) respond to your questions, and (v) contact you about other employment positions that may be of interest to you.

III. Disclosure of Information
ThromboGenics will not sell or otherwise disclose any personal information we collect about or from you through our website to any third parties without your consent, except as set forth below.
A. Legal or Safety Reasons.
We may disclose your personal information to third parties: (1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; (2) in certain instances in which we believe it is reasonably necessary to investigate or prevent harm, fraud, abuse, or illegal conduct; or (3) where needed for corporate audits or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat. We also reserve the right to cooperate with law enforcement authorities in disclosing information for the purpose of investigating and prosecuting users who violate our policies or engage in behavior that is illegal or harmful to other web sites.
If we are legally compelled to disclose your personal information to a third party, we will notify you of this fact, unless doing so would violate the law or court order or pose a threat or danger to you or others. In addition, we will take all necessary steps to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of any information so provided.
B. Operations and Maintenance Contractors.
Third parties that ThromboGenics contracts with to maintain or service the website or other aspects of our business will sometimes have access to your personal information in the course of providing products or services to the company. These contractors may include, but are not limited to, our webmasters, attorneys, auditors, and vendors who are hired to analyze the data collected on our website. Any third-party contractor’s access to your personal information will be limited to the minimum information reasonably necessary for the contractor to perform its limited function for the company.
C. Aggregate Information.
We may provide non-personal, non-identifying information about you to third parties, and that information may be combined in aggregate with the information of other users for statistical purposes. For example, we might inform third parties of the number of people who use our website, and what activities they engage in while browsing our site.
IV. Links to Other Sites
V. Information Security
Please be assured that ThromboGenics has physical, electronic, and managerial procedures in place to safeguard the personal information you have provided to us via our website. Our technology and security policies, rules, and other measures are designed to protect your personal data from unauthorized access, improper use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction, and accidental loss. We use industry standard firewalls and password protection to prevent unauthorized individuals from accessing information. We also require that all our employees and any others who have access to or are associated with the processing of your data respect your confidentiality.
Keep in mind, however, that any passwords, ID numbers, or other special access numbers you might use to access any part of this site are your responsibility, so you must safeguard them carefully. You should take steps to ensure that the computer you are using is adequately secured and protected against malicious software. Without adequate security measures (e.g., secure web browser configuration, up-to-date antivirus software, personal firewall software, no usage of software from dubious sources) there is a risk that the data and passwords you use to protect access to your data on our website could be disclosed to unauthorized third parties.
VI. Children’s Policy
This website is not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 14. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we know to be under the age of 14 without the prior, verifiable consent of his or her legal representative. Such legal representative has the right, upon request, to view the information provided by the child and/or to require that it be deleted.
ThromboGenics may periodically change, modify, add, remove or otherwise update this Policy at its discretion, without prior notification. However, any changes to this Policy will be posted on this page so that you are fully informed of the types of information we are gathering, how we use it, and under what circumstances it may be disclosed.
