Cytori’s Commitment to Data Privacy Protection
Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to Cytori; therefore, we conduct our business in compliance with applicable laws on data privacy protection and data security. The policy below is designed to help you understand what data Cytori may collect, how Cytori uses and safeguards that data and with whom we may share it.
Through our Web sites, Cytori will not collect any personal data about you (e.g. your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address), unless you voluntarily choose to provide us with it (e.g. by registration, survey), or provide your consent, or unless otherwise permitted by applicable laws and regulations for the protection of your personal data.
Purpose of Use
When you do provide us with personal data, we generally use it to respond to your inquiry, process your order or provide you access to specific information or offers. Also, to support our customer relationship with you:
- we may store and process personal data and share it with our worldwide affiliates to better understand your business needs and how we can improve our products and services; or
- we (or a third party on our behalf) may use personal data to contact you about a Cytori offer in support of your business needs or to conduct online surveys to better understand your needs.
If you choose not to have your personal data used to support our customer relationship (especially direct marketing or market research), we will respect your choice. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties.
Cytori will collect, use or disclose personal data supplied by you online only for the purposes disclosed to you, unless the disclosure:
- is a use of the personal data for any additional purpose that is directly related to the original purpose for which the personal data was collected,
- is necessary to prepare, negotiate, and perform a contract with you,
- is required by law or the competent governmental or judicial authorities,
- is necessary to establish or preserve a legal claim or defense,
- is necessary to prevent fraud or other illegal activities, such as willful attacks on Cytori information technology systems.
Non-Personal Data Collected Automatically
When you access our Web sites, we may automatically (i.e., not by registration) collect non-personal data (e.g. type of Internet browser and operating system used, domain name of the Web site from which you came, number of visits, average time spent on the site, pages viewed). We may use this data and share it with our worldwide affiliates to monitor the attractiveness of our Web sites and improve their performance or content.
When you view one of our Web sites, we may store some data on your computer in the form of a “cookie” to automatically recognize your PC next time you visit. Cookies can help us in many ways, for example, by allowing us to tailor a Web site to better match your interests or to store your password to save you having to re-enter it each time. If you do not wish to receive cookies, please configure your Internet browser to erase all cookies from your computer’s hard drive, block all cookies or to receive a warning before a cookie is stored.
We will take reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information as you transmit it from your computer to our Web sites and to protect it from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should be aware that no internet transmission is ever fully secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from our Web sites may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. WE DO NOT INSURE OR WARRANT THE SECURITY OF INFORMATION YOU TRANSMIT, AND YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK.
This Site is not intended for use by children under the age of 18. We do not intend to collect any personally identifiable information from children through our Web site. Please do not allow children under the age of 18 to provide any personally identifiable information related to our Web site.
