The purpose of this policy is to explain how Teleflex treats personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information that we collect through our main website, and any other Teleflex website where this Policy is posted (collectively, the “Sites” and each, a “Site”).
Please note that this Policy applies only to personally identifiable and non-personally identifiable information collected via the Sites, and does not apply to any other information collected by Teleflex through any other means. When this Policy uses the term “personally identifiable information” or “personal information,” we mean information that identifies a particular individual, such as the individual’s name, postal address, e-mail address or telephone number. When other information is directly associated with personally identifiable information, this other information also becomes personally identifiable information for purposes of this Policy.
Teleflex abides with the European Union-United States Safe Harbor Privacy Principles as set forth by the United States Department of Commerce regarding the collection, use and retention of personal information collected within the European Union by the Company through the site or the use of any of the Company’s services.
When browsing Teleflex Sites, our servers automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information, such as your computer’s IP address, domain name, browser type, pages viewed and the time you visited our Sites, the number of times you return to our Sites and other click-stream data. Non-personal information that we may collect from you via our Sites is not used by us to personally identify you. Instead this information may be compiled and/or analyzed by us on an aggregated basis to measure our users’ habits. This helps us to measure the use of our Sites, improve the content, functionality and operation of our Sites and to better understand and serve our users. Teleflex does not sell, exchange or publish this information, however, it may be shared with employees and vendors who assist in the implementation and maintenance of our Sites.
In some sections of the Sites, we offer visitors various opportunities to communicate and otherwise interact with our companies directly via the Sites. If you choose to take advantage of any of these opportunities, we may ask that you voluntarily provide personal information about yourself, such as your name, address, telephone number, email address and other information.
We collect your personal information only to the extent necessary to serve the purposes for which the information is provided. By submitting this information, you agree that we may keep a record of the information in order to respond to requests; send you information about our latest products, promotions and events; or comply with requirements of regulatory agencies such as the FDA or FAA, if necessary.
Teleflex may disclose the personal information you provide to its employees, consultants, regulatory agencies, and any other third party in order to respond appropriately to your request or to comply with regulations and/or requirements.
In addition, we may share the personal information you provide with other companies we have hired to provide services for us. These companies (our agents/vendors) are contractually bound to use personal information we share with them only to perform the services we have hired them to provide.
We do not share, sell or lease personal information about you to any third-parties for their marketing use. We will release information about you if you direct us to do so or if we are required by law to do so.
If you are a dealer and sign up through our Sites to become part of one or more of our dealer networks, your contact information may be published on our Sites for consumer referrals concerning Teleflex products and/or repair services.
You may review and update the information that you provided to us through this Site by using the “Contact” option on this Site.
Teleflex does not intend to collect personal information from children under age 13 without permission of the child’s parent or legal guardian. Also, we do not provide any personal information to any third party (other than Teleflex’s agents) about our on-line visitors who indicate they are under 13 years of age.
On-line visitors under 13 years of age should not submit personal information to us without the explicit permission from their parent or legal guardian. If your child has submitted personal information, and you would like to request that such information be removed from our system, please use the “Contact Us” option on this Site to make such a request and we will use reasonable efforts to comply with your request.
We use reasonable security measures such as encryption and firewalls to ensure against the loss, misuse, or alteration of the information under our control. Unfortunately, no electronic communication over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. WHILE WE STRIVE TO TAKE GREAT CARE TO PROTECT YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION, WE CANNOT WARRANT THE SECURITY OF ANY INFORMATION THAT YOU SUBMIT TO US, AND YOU DO SO AT YOUR OWN RISK. We urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
