Please read this Policy before using the Aerin Medical Website or submitting personal information to us.

This Policy applies to information that we collect through any website that displays, links to, or references this Policy (referred to herein as “Website”). By accessing, visiting, browsing, using, submitting information through, or otherwise interacting with Website, you agree to the terms of this Policy. By accessing or using Website, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Policy.

INFORMATION AERIN MEDICAL GATHERS AND TRACKS

Aerin Medical collects information in two ways:

  1. Information that users provide through optional, voluntary submissions: This information may include personal information, such as your name, phone number, email address, nature of address, street address, and whatever other information you submit through web forms on our Website. We collect this information to respond to requests from users, customize our features for individual visitors who are Aerin Medical customers, improve our Website, and notify customers about updates to the Website and our other products and services. “Sensitive” personal information is information revealing or relating to your health. We ask that you do not submit this type of information through the Website.
  2. Information that we collect automatically as you navigate the Website: This information may include usage details, IP addresses, machine type, browser and operating system type, mobile device type, geolocation, and information collected through tracking technologies such as cookies and web beacons. Information Aerin Medical gathers through aggregated tracking is used to determine which areas of our sites users like and don't like based on traffic to those areas. We do not track what individual users read, but rather how well each page performs overall. We collect this information in order to determine how to create the best experience for our customers. We may track search terms entered in our search function as one of many measures of what interests our users, but this tracking is not associated with individual users.

USE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION

Aerin Medical protects the security of your personal information or other information collected about or in relation to you and honors your choices for its intended use. We disclose your information to no third-parties unless specifically stated otherwise.

We may use third-party contractors to help us operate our business and the Website or administer activities on our behalf, and may share your personal information and other information collected about or in relation to you with these contractors for those limited purposes.

Except as otherwise stated, we may use and combine information collected via the Website to improve our Website, to customize the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you, for our marketing and research purposes, to compile and analyze statistics and trends, and for any other purpose specified. In addition, personal information you supply to us may be used by us to supply you information regarding, and connect you with, medical providers that can provide you with Aerin Medical products and services. Aerin Medical may share both personal and passive unidentifiable information related to you with our staff, and also with non-Aerin Medical staff at participating doctors’ offices for the purpose of contacting patients to set appointments after you have completed a form to make such a request.

Notwithstanding any other provision to the contrary, Aerin Medical reserves the right to cooperate with local, state and federal officials in any investigation relating to any purported illegal activity(ies) and, when required by law, regulation, legal process or government requests, to disclose any personal information furnished by you or collected by us to law enforcement authorities or other relevant or related third-parties.

Business Transfers – In the event that we are involved in a bankruptcy, merger, acquisition, reorganization or sale of assets or change in our ownership or control, your information may be sold or transferred as part of that transaction. The promises in this Privacy Policy will apply to your information as transferred to the new entity.

In addition to the situations described above, we may use and disclose visitor information in special instances when we have reason to believe disclosing this information is necessary to investigate, identify, contact, or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to or interfering with our rights or property, other Website visitors, or anyone else. We may disclose visitor information when subpoenaed, if ordered or otherwise required by a court of law, arbitrator, or other similar proceeding or the rules governing such a proceeding, for government investigations, with government agencies if required by law, and when we otherwise believe in good faith that any applicable law requires.
