Orphina Biotechnology (“Orphina” or “We” or “Our” ) takes the privacy and protection of your personal information very seriously. We have prepared this privacy notice (“Privacy Notice”) to describe to you our practices regarding personal information we collect from users of this website (the “Website”) and digital services (“Services”) in which it is posted or linked.
“Personal Information” is information about you that is personally identifiable to you like your name, address, e-mail address, or phone number, as well as other non-public information that is associated with the foregoing.
“Anonymous Information” means information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not permit the identification of individual persons.
Orphina collects and uses Personal Information and Anonymous Information as described in this Privacy Notice from users of the Website.
If you are a non U.S. user of the Website, by visiting the Website and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that your Personal Information may be processed for the purposes identified in the Privacy Notice. In addition, your Personal Information may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States, where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. By providing your data, you consent to such transfer.
We collect personal data you choose to provide, e.g., through registrations, applications and surveys, and in connection with your inquiries and purchases. For example, you may choose to provide your name, contact information, health, insurance and/or financial information in connection with a promotion or a patient assistance or support program. Healthcare providers may choose to provide information relating to their specialties and professional affiliations.
In addition, we may gather information about you automatically through your use of the Website, e.g., your IP address and how you navigate our Website. See also, the Section below on Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies.
From time to time, we may use or augment the personal data we have about you with information obtained from other sources, such as public databases, social media platforms and other third parties. For example, we may use such third party information to confirm contact or financial information, to verify licensure of healthcare professionals or to better understand your interests by associating demographic information with the information you have provided.
If you submit any personal data relating to other people to us, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.
In general, Personal Information you submit to Orphina is used by Orphina to respond to your requests, provide you with the information you have requested, send you administrative and promotional emails, provide you with product information, improve the Website and to better tailor the features, performance and support of the Website, offer you additional information or opportunities, and protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorized, or illegal activity.
Orphina may create Anonymous Information records from Personal Information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the information personally identifiable to you. Orphina may use this Anonymous Information to analyze usage patterns so that it may enhance the Website. Orphina reserves the right to use and disclose Anonymous Information to third parties in its discretion.
Orphina may share your personal data as follows:
In Connection With Business Transfers. If we sell or transfer a business unit (such as a subsidiary) or an asset (such as a website) to another company (including in connection with any bankruptcy or similar proceedings), we will share your personal data with such company and will require such company to use and protect your personal data consistent with this Privacy Notice.
With Providers. We may retain other companies and individuals to perform services on our behalf and we may collaborate with other companies and individuals with respect to particular products or services (collectively, “Providers”). These third parties may be provided with access to personal data needed to perform their functions, but they may not use such data other than on our behalf or subject to contracts that protect the confidentiality of the data. Examples of Providers include credit card processing companies, customer service and support providers, email and SMS vendors, data analytics firms, web hosting and development companies and fulfillment companies. Providers also include our co-promote partners for products that we jointly develop and/or market with other companies. Some Providers may collect personal data on our behalf on our Site.
To Comply With Law Enforcement. We reserve the right to disclose your personal data as required by law, when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to comply with a regulatory requirement, judicial proceeding, court order, government request, or legal process served on us, or to protect the safety, rights, or property of our customers, the public, Orphina or others.
In The Aggregate/De-Identified. Orphina may also disclose aggregate or de-identified data that is not personally identifiable to third parties for any purpose.
Orphina aims to provide you with choices regarding the Personal Information you provide to us. This section describes mechanisms that we offer you to control certain uses and disclosures of your information.
When you access any interactive Service, you will be asked to affirmatively choose (“opt in“) to provide the requested information. You may always choose not to provide the requested information but then you may not be able to use the Service as intended.
Accept and Reject Cookies. Your browser software can be set to reject all cookies, but if you reject our cookies, certain of the functions and conveniences of the Services may not work properly. To learn more about cookies, please check your browser’s help or similar feature or visit allaboutcookies.org.
How We Respond to Browser “Do Not Track” Signals. Some web browsers incorporate a “do-not-track” or similar feature that signals to websites with which the browser communicates that a visitor does not want to have his/her online activity tracked. If a digital service that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that digital service from collecting certain Personal Information about the browser’s user. As of the Effective Date not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, Orphina along with many other digital service operators do not currently respond to DNT signals. For more information about DNT signals, visit allaboutdnt.com.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Orphina cannot comply with a consumer’s request to amend or remove information that was provided to Orphina by a healthcare professional or a consumer regarding an adverse drug event.
When you use our Website, some information is automatically collected. For example, when you use our Website, your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit are all collected. This information is generally used to help us deliver the most relevant information to you and administer and improve the Website.
We gather certain information automatically and store it in log files, including IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to improve the content of the Website, market research purposes, to communicate information to visitors and to better tailor our Website to our users’ needs.
We may log information using Cookies. “Cookies” are small data files stored on your hard drive by a Website. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Website. This type of information is collected to make the Website more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.
You can learn more about Google’s data collection practices by going to www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/, and opt-out of them by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
We use technical, administrative and procedural measures in an attempt to safeguard your personal data from unauthorized access or use. No such measure is ever 100% effective though, so we do not guarantee that your personal data will be secure from theft, loss, or unauthorized access or use, and we make no representation as to the reasonableness, efficacy, or appropriateness of the measures we use to safeguard such data. Users are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of their own passwords. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please immediately notify us by contacting us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Website is controlled and operated by us from the United States and is not intended to subject us to the laws or jurisdiction of any state, country or territory other than that of the United States. Any information you provide to Orphina through use of the Website may be stored and processed, transferred between and accessed from the United States and other countries which may not guarantee the same level of protection of personal data as the one in which you reside. However, Orphina will handle your personal data in accordance with this Privacy Notice regardless of where your personal data is stored/accessed.
For your convenience, hyperlinks may be posted on the Websites that link to other websites (the “Linked Sites”). We are not responsible for, and this Privacy Notice does not apply to, the privacy practices of any Linked Sites or of any companies that we do not own or control. Linked Sites may collect information in addition to that which we collect on the Websites. We do not endorse any of these Linked Sites, the services or products described or offered on such Linked Sites, or any of the content contained on the Linked Sites. We encourage you to seek out and read the privacy notice of each Linked Site that you visit to understand how the information that is collected about you is used and protected.
The Website is not directed to individuals under the age of thirteen (13), and we do not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 13.
We’re constantly trying to improve our Websites, so we may need to change this Privacy Notice from time to time as well. We will alert you to material changes by, for example, placing a notice on our Websites and/or by sending you an email (if you have registered your e-mail details with us) when we are required to do so by applicable law.
