INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE
Our Policy recognizes two kinds of personal data that deserve varying levels of protection. “Personally-Identifiable Information” includes without limitation, names, addresses, e-mail addresses, billing information, and employment information. A subset of that category, “Sensitive Data”, deserves additional safeguards. Sensitive Data includes information such as Social Security numbers and personal financial data.
You do not have to give us Personally-Identifiable Information to visit our Site. However, we store information that users enter on our Site or provide us in any other way.
Personally-Identifiable Information will only be collected to the extent that Laureate Pharma deems reasonably necessary to serve a legitimate business purpose. We may also automatically collect non-Personally-Identifiable Information such as the domain name from which users access the Internet, the date of users visit, and the pages that are visited. This information enables us to determine the number of visitors to the pages of our Site and how users access it, so that we can improve our Site for user’s needs.
This Site is not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personally identifiable data from Site visitors under the age of 13.
We may use “cookies”. “Cookies” are elements of data that a web site can send to a user’s browser and store on a user’s computer. Cookies do not contain Personally-Identifiable Information about a user. They are used to enhance navigation and functionality of the Site, and to let us know how visitors are using the Site, so that we can improve the Site and a user’s experience on it. Users do not have control over cookies. Most browsers can be set to notify a user when a cookie is being placed on its computer. A user can also set most browsers to refuse to accept cookies or a user can also erase cookies, although this may affect a user’s Internet experience.
EXTERNAL DISTRIBUTION / OPT OUT
Users who provide Laureate Pharma with Personally-Identifiable information will be given the opportunity to Opt Out and refuse permission for external distribution of their Personally-Identifiable Information by sending an email to our Privacy Officer at [email protected] the words “OPT OUT” in the subject area. (External distribution does not include certain limited distributions such as sharing Personally-Identifiable Information with an entity working on behalf of Laureate Pharma; transfer of Personally-Identifiable Information in conjunction with the sale or similar transfer of Laureate Pharma; or the disclosure of Personally-Identifiable Information in connection with legal proceedings, investigations of crimes or other wrongdoing. However, sharing Personally-Identifiable Information with an entity working on behalf of Laureate Pharma or transferring Personally-Identifiable Information in conjunction with the sale or similar transfer of the company is considered an “Onward Transfer” and will be handled as described below.)
The collection and use of Sensitive Data carries with it special obligations and responsibilities in order to maintain the data’s security, integrity and privacy. Sensitive Data will not be sold, rented or otherwise made available for external distribution outside Laureate Pharma (although it may be made available through an Onward Transfer as described below).
The transfer of Personally-Identifiable Information to a third party in connection with a sale of assets of Laureate Pharma or a merger involving Laureate Pharma or the sharing of Personally-Identifiable Information with a third party working on behalf of Laureate Pharma shall only be to a third party that subscribes to appropriate procedures to help ensure that the information is used only for authorized purposes and by authorized persons in a manner consistent with the choices that borrowers and customers have made under this Policy, and that the security, integrity and privacy of the information is maintained. Please note that our Site may contain links to other web sites that have their own privacy policies and practices. While Laureate Pharma will employ appropriate procedures to help ensure that your information is used only for authorized purposes, Laureate Pharma cannot make any guarantees with respect to the actions or policies of such third parties.
While we will try to protect Personally-Identifiable Information we have collected and maintained, we do not guarantee the effectiveness of any of our security measures. We are not responsible for the security of any information transmitted via the Internet.
We use the resumes and information submitted to us to determine whether or not a user’s employment inquiry will be given consideration for employment openings at Laureate Pharma. Such information and resumes are only distributed to Laureate Pharma and its recruiting agencies.
