Merz respects the individual privacy of visitors to this website, and we want you to know what information we collect while you visit this website, how Merz uses such information, and how you can limit the use of personally identifiable information that we may collect beyond the purposes for which you first provided it.
Some of the information we keep on our webserver is information that you volunteer to provide through forms and some is collected automatically. Unless you volunteer to submit personal data yourself, Merz will not collect any information from which individual visitors can be identified nor will Merz employ any technology that is aimed at identifying a visitor.
This policy only applies to the collection of information at www.FocalDystoniaExchange.com. Different policies may apply to other websites or information that we get offline.
Data We Collect and How We Use It
PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
We may use personally identifiable information we collect to respond to an email or other inquiry or request, to help improve our website and our services, to customize your experience at our website, to invite you to participate in research, or to send updates, notices or other material that we think may be of interest to you. We may also combine this information with other generally or publicly available information to help us identify visitors’ preferences or interests. We may provide information that identifies you to companies that assist us in these activities, such as helping us fulfill your request for a product, service, or information. We do not share information with third parties. We will not sell or otherwise transfer the personally identifiable information you provide to us at this website to any third parties for their own use.
User-provided Information: We collect your email address if you communicate with us by email, as well as other personally identifiable information that you might supply voluntarily, such as in connection with testimonials, feedback forms, and surveys, or if you contact us through the website with questions or comments. If you complete one of these forms, we may ask you for your date of birth, age, and other demographic information. We will use your email address, without further consent, for administrative purposes, for customer service purposes, to address intellectual property infringement, rights of privacy, or defamation issues.
Merz will not use your email address or other personally identifiable information to send promotional messages.
COOKIES & AUTOMATICALLY COLLECTED INFORMATION
Like many websites, Mederma.com uses a technology called “cookies.” We use this technology to provide you a richer and more personalized consumer experience. We do not store any of your personal information in cookies or other technologies on your computer.
Cookies are small pieces of information stored by your browser on your computer’s hard drive and are used in website system administration to keep track of movement of an individual from one screen to another. Our staff may use this information to detect and resolve website problems and to assist with customer support concerns. We do not collect any personally identifiable information about site visitors in this process. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually change your browser to prevent this. Please be assured that accepting a cookie does not give us access to your computer or personal information under any circumstances. If you disable cookies, you may be unable to order or use other features of our site. If you experience any problems, please contact us at. firstname.lastname@example.org.
As is common among Internet site operators, we maintain web server logs. Our web server automatically collects information from your computer and navigation patterns when you visit our site, including your Internet Protocol (IP) address, the computer’s operating system, the type of browser you use, and the specific web pages visited during your connection. Mederma.com may use “automatically collected” information and “cookies” information to: (a) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the website; and (b) track data such as the total number of visits to our website and the number of visitors to each page of our website.
We may use this information, in aggregate form, for system maintenance and to better understand how our visitors use our site and services so that we can make them better. We may also share statistical or demographic information in aggregate form with third parties for marketing or research purposes. This aggregate data will not contain any information that personally identifies you.
When Merz Discloses Information
At all times, Merz reserves the right to disclose information where if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant, to protect the Merz’s rights or property (including without limitation in the event of a transfer of control of Merz or substantially all of its assets), or during emergencies when safety is at risk. In some cases, we may make such disclosures without first providing notice to Users.
Merz will not sell, trade, rent or share your personally identifiable information with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your express consent.
Merz may disclose automatically collected and other aggregate non-personally-identifiable information with interested third parties to assist such parties in understanding the usage, viewing, and demographic patterns for certain programs, content, services, advertisements, promotions, and/or functionality on this website.
Merz works with some authorized service providers to provide website hosting and maintenance services for us. Merz requires these service providers to safeguard personally identifiable information you provide to us. To the extent it is necessary for these service providers to complete their contractual obligations to Merz, these third parties may have access to or process your personally identifiable information.
Merz also reserves the right to disclose User information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability; protect Merz from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of this website; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Merz, our users, or others.
How You Can Control and Update Data About You
We want to be sure that we keep only the most accurate and up to date information about you in our records. Therefore, whenever you believe that information you have given to us needs to be updated, you can email us at email@example.com correct or update your contact information.
You may choose at any time to remove your name, telephone numbers, and postal and email addresses from any lists we might use to send notices or updates and elect not to receive correspondence from us by sending us email at firstname.lastname@example.org
Other Internet sites you visit may have their own privacy policies or no policy at all. Other websites might use personal information differently than our policy permits. We strongly encourage you to review the privacy policies of any site before providing any personal information.
