The Information We Collect and/or Receive
In the course of operating the Sites, we will collect (and/or receive) the following types of information. You authorize us to collect and/or receive such information.
If you contact us via the Contact Us page or by any other means through the Site(s), you will be asked to provide certain information which may include your name, e-mail address, phone number, and company name. If you would like to participate in our patient savings program for the Product(s), you will be asked to provide certain information about yourself which may include your name, address, date of birth, zip code, social security number, phone number, gender, physician’s name, physician’s phone number, physician’s zip code, financial information and insurance/payer information.
From time to time, we may use or augment the personal data we have about you with information obtained from other sources, such as public databases, social media platforms and other third parties. For example, we may use such third-party information to confirm contact or financial information, to verify licensure of healthcare professionals or to better understand your interests by associating demographic information with the information you have provided.
All information we collect and/or receive under this section is collectively called “Personal Information.”
In addition to the Personal Information we may collect additional information (the “Other Information”). Such Other Information may include:
- From Your Activity. In an ongoing effort to improve the Sites and to determine which IBSA services are popular, we automatically collect certain information when you visit the Sites. Such information includes, without limitation, your IP address, browser type and language, domain names, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of the Sites visitors visit, and similar information concerning your use of the Sites.
- From Cookies. The Sites use “cookies” to help us personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a web page server. Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize IBSA pages, or register with Sites or services, a cookie helps IBSA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. When you return to the same Site, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the IBSA features that you customized. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the Sites.
Please be advised that if you opt out of any service, you may not be able to use the full functionality of the Site(s).

- Validate Your Ability To Access/Use Certain Products, Services And Information. Some products, services and information we offer may only be suitable for/accessible to individuals meeting certain eligibility or other criteria.

In an ongoing effort to better understand our users and the Sites, we might analyze your Information in aggregate form in order to operate, maintain, manage, and improve the Sites.

We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe the Sites to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Security of your Personal Information
IBSA takes commercially reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, loss, misuse, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases or the databases of the third parties with which we may share such information, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be subject to unauthorized access or use or intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet nor do we make representation as to the reasonableness, efficacy, or appropriateness of the measures we use to safeguard such data. In particular, e-mail sent to us may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Users are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of their own passwords. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us by contacting us email@example.com.
