Changes to Web Privacy Practices
Your Personal Information
“Personal Information” refers to specific facts that can be used to identify or contact you as an individual. Personal Information includes, for example, your name, home address and phone number, birth date, your sex, email address or other information that is unique to you. We collect Personal Information at this website only when you supply it to us.
Personal Information does not include information that identifies a computer that is used to access the website because it does not identify anything about the person who is using the computer. (See the section below about “Cookies and Non-personal Information”.)
With Whom is Personal Information Shared?
We share and give access to Personal Information to our employees and agents in the course of operating our business. We may share and give access to Personal Information with other companies that we hire to perform services on our behalf or collaborate with. Similarly, we may hire outside companies to host or operate some of our websites and related computers and software applications.
However, if we share or give access to Personal Information to outside companies we require them to use the Personal Information only for limited purposes, such as to provide services or resources to you. If you believe we or any company associated with Pharmastar has misused any of your information, please contact us immediately and report such misuse.
We may share Personal Information if all or part of Pharmastar is sold, merged, dissolved, acquired, or in a similar transaction.
We may share Personal Information in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, law and/or regulation. We may cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating and prosecuting website visitors who violate our rules, engage in behavior that is harmful to other visitors, or is illegal.
Cookies and Non-personal Information
“Non-personal Information” means information that does not permit us to specifically identify you by your full name or similar unique identifying information such as a social security number, member identification number, address or telephone number. Pharmastar uses cookie technology and similar technology to gather Non-personal Information from our website visitors such as which pages are used and how often they are used and to enable certain features on this website.
Two types of cookies are used within this website: session and persistent. Session cookies expire once a user closes their browser. Persistent cookies used in the context of this website are temporary and expire after only one minute.
- Tracking resources and data accessed on the website.
- Recording general website statistics and activity.
- Assisting users experiencing website problems.
- Enabling certain functions and tools on this website.
- Tracking paths of visitors to this website and within this website.
We may also collect other forms of Non-personal Information such as what web browsers are used to read our website and what websites are referring traffic or linking to our website. Aggregate and de-identified data regarding website users is also considered Non-personal Information.
“Do Not Track” Signals
This website does not log or respond to “do not track” signals. If you do not wish for your information (either Personal Information or Non-personal Information) to be tracked, we encourage you to close your browser and/or contact us directly with any questions or concerns versus reviewing our website.
With Whom is Non-personal Information Shared?
Because Non-personal Information does not identify who you are, we do not limit the ways we may use or share Non-personal Information. For example, we may share Non-personal Information with our affiliates, suppliers, employees and agents, other businesses and the government.
Reviewing My Information
This website may permit you to view your visitor profile and related Personal Information. If this function is available, we will include a link on this website with a heading such as “My Profile” or similar words. Clicking on the link will take you to a page through which you may review your visitor profile and related Personal Information.
Website and Information Security
We use a number of physical security (such as locks and alarm systems), electronic security (such as passwords and encryption methods), and procedural security methods (such as rules regarding the handling and use of information), designed to protect the security and integrity of information submitted through this website. Due to the nature of the internet and online communications, however, we cannot guarantee that any information transmitted online will remain absolutely confidential, and we are not liable for the illegal acts of third parties such as criminal hackers.
Information for Children Under 13
We will not intentionally collect any personal information from children under the age of 13 through this website without receiving verifiable parental consent. If you think that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13 through this website, please contact us.
