Introduction

We respect your privacy and are committed to protecting it through our compliance with this Policy.  This Policy describes the types of information we may collect from you or that you may provide when you visit the website www.valencell.com (our “Website”), and our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting and disclosing that information.

This Policy applies to any information that we collect on the Website, including any information in any e-mails, posts, texts and other electronic messages between you and the Website and any information about you transferred to the Website from other websites.

Please read this Policy carefully to understand our policies and practices regarding your information and how we will treat it.  If you do not agree with our policies and practices, you can choose not to use our Website.  By accessing or using our Website, you agree to this Policy.  This Policy may change from time to time.  Your continued use of the Website after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check this Policy periodically for updates.

 

What Information is Considered “Personal Information”?

Information we collect on our Website falls into one of two categories:

  • Information that you provide to the Website by which you may be personally identified, which generally includes first and last name; physical or mailing address; e-mail address; telephone number, including a mobile telephone number; and any other information collected that is combined with one or more of the categories of information listed here.
  • Other information that is about you but does not identify you personally, such as statistical traffic information about which buttons or links users click on most frequently when they access our Website.

For the purposes of this Policy, information listed in the first category above is considered to be your “Personal Information.”  All other information that does not identify you individually or that is “anonymized” or “de-identified” is not considered Personal Information.

 

Information We Collect About You and How We Collect It

When you fill out our web forms (such as on our Contact Us page) and submit them to us, we collect several types of information from you, including Personal Information, such as your name, e-mail address, and any other information that you choose to enter into such web forms.

As you navigate through and interact with our Website, we may automatically collect certain traffic data and usage information to help us manage our content and improve your use of the Website.  This may include information about your equipment, your IP address and your browsing actions and patterns when you visit our Website, including the referring and exit pages.  The technologies that we use for this automatic data collection may include cookies that are stored on your computer, small embedded electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags and single-pixel gifs) and other types of embedded code on the Website that permit us to count users and obtain other related Website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain Website content and verifying system and server integrity).

 

How We Use Your Information and How We Respond to “Do Not Track” Signals

We use information that we collect about you or that you provide to us, including any Personal Information, to present our Website and its contents to you, to provide you with information, products or services that you request from us and to fulfill any other purpose for which you provide the information.  If you opt in to receiving our e-mail newsletter via the Website, we may use your Personal Information to contact you with general news updates about us, promotional information or marketing materials about the products and services we offer or other information we believe will be of interest to you.  We may also use the information that you provide in any other way that we describe when you provide the information and for any other purpose with your consent.

We do not sell or lease your Personal Information to third parties.  We do not currently collect Personal Information about your online activities over time across third party sites for tracking purposes.  We do not currently allow third parties to collect Personal Information on the Website that could be used by them to analyze and store information about your on-line activities over time and across third party sites for tracking purposes.  Therefore, the Website does not respond to any “DO NOT TRACK” signals sent by your browser or otherwise.

 

Disclosure of Your Information

We may disclose Personal Information to our subsidiaries and affiliates and to any contractors, service providers and other third parties (such as contract sales representatives or our CRM software provider) who we use to support our business and help us operate, maintain and improve the Website and who (1) need to know such information to support our permitted uses of Personal Information in accordance with this Policy, and (2) are bound by contractual obligations to keep Personal Information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which we disclose it to them.

We may disclose such Personal Information to a buyer or other successor to our business in the event of a sale of equity or assets, reorganization, merger or a similar corporate transaction.

We may convert or combine some Personal Information of users into de-identified or aggregated data that does not disclose any of the Personal Information of any individual user.  We may disclose any such de-identified or aggregated data without restriction.

Some of the information that we collect from cookies, web beacons or other embedded code relates to your personal use of the Website and allows us to store information about your preferences, speed up your searches and recognize you when you return to our Website.  Other information that we collect from cookies, web beacons or other embedded code is not tied to your Personal Information and enables us to estimate our audience size and usage patterns.  This traffic data may be shared with third parties without restriction.

 We may disclose your Personal Information to comply with any court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request, or if we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to protect the rights, property, or safety of our customers or others.

We may also disclose your Personal Information for any other purpose noted when the information is provided, and for any other purpose with your consent.
