Privacy Statement

At ACT Genomics, we understand that numerous laws and regulations around the world govern data protection and we respect the fact that protecting your privacy is important to you. We also recognize that health and medical information is particularly sensitive. For those reasons, we want to explain our Internet privacy policy to you in this Website Privacy Statement. Please review this Statement to learn about how ACT Genomics collects, uses, shares and protects information.

Firstly, we only collect your personal information if you choose to give it to us. ACT Genomics may share your personal information with various outside companies or agents working on our behalf to help fulfill business transactions, and we also may share personal information with our company’s affiliates. However, we do not share any of your personal information with third parties for their own marketing use unless you explicitly give us permission to do so.

This Website Privacy Statement applies only to personal information collected online from the website(s) of ACT Genomics. Other ACT Genomics privacy policies (for example, in the case of clinical procedures or experiments) govern personal information that is not collected on the ACT Genomics website(s).

Information collected – Information you give us

At our web site(s), we only collect your personal information (such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) when you choose to submit it to us. For example, you may choose to register to receive additional product information or information about a disease or therapy or research program that interests you.

In some cases, we remove personal identifiers from data and maintain it in aggregate form. We may combine this data with other information to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information helpful to us in improving our products and services.

Automatically collected information

We automatically collect certain types of information whenever you interact with us on our sites and in some e-mails we may send each other. Automatic technologies we use may include, for example, web server logs and IP addresses, cookies and web beacons.

Web Server Logs and IP Addresses: An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet that allows computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. ACT Genomics collects IP addresses to conduct system administration and report aggregate information to affiliates, business partners, service providers and/or vendors to conduct web site analysis and performance reviews.

Your choices 

You have certain options regarding your use of our site(s). ACT Genomics may require you to provide certain personal information in order for you to receive additional information. You can decide not to submit any personal information at all by not entering it into any forms or data fields on our site(s).

If you opt-in for particular services or communications, such as an e-newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will work to remove your information promptly, although we may require additional information before we can process your request.

As described above, if you wish to prevent cookies from tracking you anonymously as you navigate our sites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Note, however, that some portions of our site(s) may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

Use of personal information

ACT Genomics and/or the service providers, vendors and other third parties we hire to perform services on our behalf may use any personal information you choose to give us to comply with your requests or as otherwise disclosed to you in this Website Privacy Statement or on the web page where you submit your information to us. We may refer to this information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services.

We use aggregated information collected from our websites to help us understand trends and customer needs. For example, we may analyze the gender or age of visitors to sites about a particular medication or disease state, and we may use that analysis of aggregate data internally or share it with others.

Data sharing and transfer

ACT Genomics may share personal information about you with various outside companies or service providers or vendors working on our behalf to help fulfill business transactions, such as providing customer service, sending marketing communications about our products, services and offers, and doing technological maintenance. We may also share personal information with our company’s affiliates.

We may also disclose personal information for these purposes:

  1. In connection with the sale, assignment or other transfer of the business of the site to which the data relates.
  2. To respond to requests of government or law enforcement agencies or where required or permitted by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations.
  3. Where needed for corporate audits or to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat.

No Third-Party Direct Marketing Use:

ACT Genomics will not sell or otherwise transfer the personal information you provide to us at our site(s) to any third parties for their own direct marketing use unless we provide clear notice to you and obtain your explicit consent for your data to be shared in this manner. Note to Users of Business or Professional Web Sites: If you have a business or professional relationship with ACT Genomics, we may use information you submit on our site(s), including sites intended specifically for business and professional users, to fulfill your requests and develop our business relationship with you and the entities you represent. We may also share such information with third parties acting on our behalf.
