Anonymous Data and “Cookies”
You may access the majority of the information on our Site without telling us who you are. However, there are areas of the Site (for instance, online purchasing, event/seminar registration, and software downloads) that require you to register or complete online forms. Information that you provide on these online forms may include your name, address, phone number, fax number, email address, and your interests in certain Aplegen or SBIG products, product lines, or services. For online purchasing, you will also need to provide payment information.
We may use Personal Data you provide to provide you with the products, materials, and services you request. In doing so, we may provide Personal Data to third parties. For example, if you purchase products online using a credit card, we will contact that credit card company or its third-party service provider to process the order, and we will use a third-party shipping company to ship your order. We may use your Personal Data to conduct market, customer, and general business analysis for Aplegen’s internal use and to improve and/or develop our products, materials, and services. In doing so, we may provide Personal Data on a reasonable need-to-know basis to third parties bound by nondisclosure obligations who assist us with marketing functions, business analysis and data management. However, we do not provide Personal Data to third parties for their own marketing purposes.
We may also use your Personal Data to contact you via email or direct mail to inform you of new products, services, events, and other information related to Diffraction or SBIG.
