This Privacy Policy applies to the collection of personal information by Servier Canada Inc. ("Servier Canada") through this Web site. Servier Canada recognizes the importance of protecting your privacy. For this reason, we have taken appropriate steps to ensure that any personal information obtained from you, as a user of this Web Site, is protected, within the limits of our ability. You are asked to read this Privacy Policy carefully.

1. Personal Information. Personal information is that which refers to or permits an individual to be identified. Personal information includes information that can be linked to you, such as your name, address, phone number, or e-mail address.

2. Collection of Information. Information may be collected in two ways when you use this Web Site. First, when you access the Web Site, non-personal information may automatically be exchanged between your computer and our server. In particular, the following information may be collected at that time: your Internet service provider's domain name, the type of browser and the operating system you are using to access this Web Site, the date and time of access and the pages you visit. We do not obtain your e mail address automatically when you access our site. However, additional information may be collected when you request services offered on this Web site. For example, when you contact us by e-mail or register in a protected portion of the Web Site, you may be asked to provide us with your name, telephone number, street or e-mail address.

3. Use of Personal Information. If you choose to provide us with personal information, we may use it to respond to your enquiries, send you publications and news in areas of potential interest to you, improve communications with you or, more generally, improve content on this Web Site.

4. Disclosure of Personal Information. Your personal information will not be given to any outside organization for its use in marketing or solicitation without your consent. Under no circumstances does Servier Canada sell your personal information to third parties.

5. Risks related to the Internet. Although every effort is taken to ensure no one else will see or obtain your personal information, complete confidentiality and security is not yet possible over the Internet. Any unencrypted e-mail communication over the Internet is, as with communications via any other medium, such as cellular phones, not secured or confidential, and is subject to possible interception, loss and/or alteration. You acknowledge and agree that Servier Canada, its affiliated companies, and agents or their respective employees, directors or officers, will not be liable in any manner whatsoever, to you or any third parties, for any damage as a result of information transmitted by e mail to Servier Canada. You assume all risks related to such communications.

The use of cookies is a common practice adopted by most major sites to better serve their clients. Most browsers are designed to accept cookies, but they can be easily configured to refuse cookies. The cookies used by this Web Site are harmless. You may opt to refuse them through your own browsers but may lose some benefits of the site in doing so.
