When you interact with us through the Site, we may collect information from you, as further described below:
We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our surveys, or use certain BioArts Services.
When connected to the Internet, a computer has a unique Internet ID called an IP (Internet Protocol) address. We use the IP address to help diagnose problems with our server, to administer our Web site, and to gather broad demographic information.
When you interact with BioArts through the Site, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. BioArts may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by BioArts affiliates, agents or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of BioArts Services, BioArts conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregate basis, and BioArts may share this aggregate data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregate information does not identify you personally. BioArts may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.
BioArts is not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:
BioArts may share your Personal Data with third parties to the extent necessary to complete a transaction.
As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.
BioArts, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information and maintaining databases. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
BioArts may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of BioArts, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
BioArts takes reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Site from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction, and to limit access to Personal Data only to authorized BioArts staff and to the person who provided the information or on whose behalf it was provided. For example, if a veterinarian provided BioArts with the name and address of the animal owner on whose behalf the veterinarian placed an order for service, the veterinarian and the animal owner would be the only ones other than BioArts staff to have access to that information. Please note, however, that no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this Site may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data to BioArts via the Internet.
