7. Privacy Policy (Last updated on November 21, 2017)

Santhera respects the privacy of visitors to our Site. This Privacy Policy describes how we protect and use data that we gather through this Site. The information we receive and how we use it depends on what you do when visiting this Site. We collect and use your non-personal data (information that is not identifiable to you personally) differently than your personal data.

The term “personal data” as used in this Policy refers to any information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, birth date, e-mail, or mailing address.

How We May Collect and Use Non-Personal Data

Each time you visit this Site, we may collect certain information about you from your computer or electronic device. This information is collected from your web browser and may include such non-personal data such as the type of browsing software you use (e.g., Google Chrome, Firefox, Safari, Microsoft Edge, or Internet Explorer), the name of the domain from which you access the Internet, the Internet IP address of the Site from which you linked directly to our Site; and/or the date and time you access our Site. Your IP address may be stored as a partial identifier and used to gather broad demographic information, which may be used to help diagnose problems with the server that administers our Site.

We use standard "cookie" and "web beacon" technology and web server logs to collect information about how our Site is used. Web beacons are transparent pixel images that are used in collecting information about website visitor activities and e-mail response and tracking. For example, if we send you an e-mail message, we (or third parties providing services on our behalf) may collect information through web beacons to determine whether you have opened the e-mail message or clicked on links located within the e-mail message.

Cookies are pieces of data that a website transfers to a visitor's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies placed on this website may be set directly by our servers or by third parties providing technical services to us. To prevent cookies from tracking you as you navigate this Site, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Please note that some portions of this website may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

In addition, we may use third-party advertising companies to place ads on other websites about our products and programs. These contracted third parties may use data obtained from cookies about your web browsing activity, or interests to provide advertisements about our products and programs. We may also partner with third-party websites to target advertising to you based on information you have provided to the third party that indicates an interest in our programs, products, or the conditions they treat.

Google Analytics

This Site uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the Site analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Site (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the Site provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Site, compiling reports on Site activity for Site operators and providing other services relating to Site activity and internet usage to the Site provider. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this Site. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set on the computer, which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this Site: Disable Google Analytics. Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/gb.html. Please note that on this Site, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

How We May Collect and Use Personal Data

Some of the services provided on this Site may require sign-up or registration. When signing up or registering with Santhera, you may need to complete certain data fields. This process discloses your identity. Please note that in the event you decide to withhold certain requested personal data, it may not be possible for you to access certain parts of the Site or for Santhera to respond to your inquiry or request. By submitting your personal data, you agree that Santhera may keep a record of it and may use your personal data to respond to your inquiry, provide you with information, products or services, market products and services that we think may be of interest to you, or to communicate with you for other purposes which are evident from the circumstances or about which we inform you when we collect your personal data. You also agree that Santhera may share your personal information with third parties who assist us with our business activities pursuant to our request for further processing in accordance with the original purpose of the collection of the personal data.

Wherever possible, Santhera endeavors to ensure that both the obligation of non-disclosure and the intended use of the personal data are clearly indicated. Please note that any information sent to Santhera in a sign-up, registration form, or via the Internet is not completely secure. We take reasonable steps to protect the personal information provided via this Site from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access or disclosure. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error-free. Due to the nature of the Internet, there is a possibility that unsecured (unencrypted) e-mail or Internet transmissions could be intercepted and read by third parties. Santhera assumes no responsibility for interception of personal information that you send in an unsecured (unencrypted) e-mail message or other Internet transmission to and from this Site. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail, in a sign-up or registration form, or via other Internet transmission.

Santhera will not share any personal data that is sensitive (e.g., medical history) with any third party without your prior consent, and you may always withdraw your consent at any later time. Please note that if you withdraw your consent, Santhera may not be able to comply with some of your requests. However, Santhera will, where practicable, inform third parties to whom your personal data has been transferred of your withdrawal of consent.

Santhera attempts to ensure that your personal data is updated, accurate, and complete according to the information that has been provided. You are entitled to access and update your personal data or to demand its deletion at any time. If you wish to access, amend, or delete your personal data held by Santhera, please contact takeabreathDMD@santhera.com. Santhera will address your request in a prompt and accurate manner and free of charge. However, requests to delete personal data will be subject to any applicable reporting, document filing, or retention obligations with which Santhera must comply. In all other cases, Santhera will keep personal data only as long as is reasonably required for the processing of the purpose for which the personal data were collected and in accordance with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or documentation retention requirements.

Except as otherwise disclosed in this Privacy Policy, we will keep your personal information private and will not share it with others, unless the disclosure is necessary to comply with a law or regulation, court order, or other legal process, protect our rights or property, enforce our Terms and Conditions of Use or this Privacy Statement, and/or protect someone’s health or safety.
