You can visit most of the Emergent site without disclosing your personally-identifiable information (“personal data”). However, you may choose to provide us with your personal data, for example when you contact us, register for seminars, activities and programs available on our website or when you request information or services. You also may decide to provide us voluntarily with personal data of a third person, such as your spouse, colleague or friend. In such case, we assume that you have an unrestricted permission of such person to provide such personal data to Emergent. Emergent may use suppliers to collect, process, store, use, analyze and/or transfer the data on its behalf. In such case, it is Emergent’s practice to require that these suppliers handle the personal data they process or transfer in a manner consistent with Emergent’s policies. By submitting the personal data to us, you acknowledge and agree with your data being processed and/or transferred on Emergent’s behalf by its suppliers. Emergent will handle the information we learn from you from your visit to our website in the following manner:
We may collect, process or transfer only the following information about you: the name of the domain from which you access the Internet; the date and time you access our site; and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to our site. We use the information we collect to measure the number of visitors to the different sections of our site, and to help us make our site more useful to visitors. We may use “cookies” and/or technologies to collect personally non-identifiable information from your visits to our website to enhance your overall site experience and for statistical purposes. You can set your browser to turn off “cookies” or to warn you when a website attempts to place a “cookie” on your computer. However, if you turn off the “cookies”, some the website may not work properly.
Personal data you provide to Emergent, including personal data of a third party, such as your spouse, colleague and friend may be collected, stored, used and transferred as necessary for Emergent to carry out business or seek potential business in the future with your company. If you provide us with personal data, whether in the form of an e-mail, business card, orally during business meeting or otherwise, we assume that you have granted us a permission to collect, store, use and transfer such information with no limitations even in and to countries where the level of data protection may not be commensurate with the high standard of protection adopted by certain countries, such as the standard suggested by the EU Data Protection Directive. We also assume that you have unrestricted permission from the third party for the transfer of its personal data.
Please be aware that it is possible that personal data you provide to Emergent may be subject to disclosure under the law (e.g., pursuant to a statutory provision, a court order or a subpoena).
Emergent uses various organizational and technical measures to protect your privacy and avoid unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal data. However, you should note that no transfer of data over the Internet is completely secure. While we use reasonable efforts to protect your data on our systems, when the data is transferred over the Internet, it may be accessed and used by unauthorized third parties. Emergent has no control over the performance, reliability, availability or security of the Internet and does not warrant that any information transfer via the Internet or any communication through the Internet is secure. Emergent shall not be liable for any disclosure, unauthorized use, loss, damage, expense, harm or inconvenience resulting from the loss, delay, interception, corruption, intervention, misuse or alteration of any personal information due to any reason beyond Emergent’s reasonable control.
