Binding Nature

Personally Identifiable Information

Terumo collects personally identifiable information, i.e., information from which you can be identified, such as name, address, telephone number or email address, only when you voluntarily provide such information and submit to its use on this site. We may use the information to respond to your requests, improve our level of service and the content of our Site; provide you with tips, helpful information, product news and updates; notify you of new Terumo products and services; seek your views on our products and services; and for our own internal purposes.

No Information Collected From Children

This Site is intended and designed to be utilized by adults and is not directed toward children under the age of 13. Children under the age of 13 are authorized to use the Site only with the express consent of a parent or guardian. In accordance with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, Terumo does not knowingly collect any information via this Site from visitors under the age of 13. To use our Website, we must obtain the consent of your parent or legal guardian if (i) you are under the age of majority and (ii) such consent is a requirement in the jurisdiction of your residence. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child where parental confirmation was required, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child where we should have obtained parental consent, please contact us at compliance@terumomedical.com and we will work with you to get this information deleted from our records.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Terumo also collects non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to track data such as the total number of visits to our Sites, the number of visitors to each page of our Sites, and the domain names of our visitors’ internet service providers. We use this information, which remains in the aggregate form, to understand how our visitors use our Sites so that we may improve them and the services we offer. We may also share this information with subsidiaries and affiliates of Terumo and with other third parties. NO PERSONNALY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION IS DISCLOSED TO THIRD PARTIES.

Use of IP Address

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your internet service provider or through your organization’s local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Web servers automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online. Terumo, or third party companies acting on behalf of Terumo, may collect IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration and to audit the use of this Site. We do not ordinarily link a user’s IP address to the personally identifiable information of that user, which means that each user’s session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. However, we may use IP addresses to identify users of this Site when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the Site’s Terms of Use, or to protect our service, Site or other users.

Cookies

This Site uses a technology called “cookies” to facilitate the delivery of services to you and to understand and preserve your personal preferences. Cookies are small pieces of information sent to your browser from a website that are stored in text files on your device (e.g., your PC, laptop or mobile). Cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site or help us analyze usage of the Site more accurately. For instance, our server may set a cookie that keeps you from having to enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. In all cases in which cookies are used, we will not collect personally identifiable information without your permission. The only personally identifiable information Terumo collects is the information you voluntarily provide. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Internet Browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored, if you prefer. Please refer to your Internet Browser’s instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of this Site or any other websites that you visit.

How we protect your personal information

Terumo will not rent or sell personally identifiable information to any third party for any purpose. However, sometimes selected third parties are used to provide Terumo with support services in connection with its Sites and such parties may, from time to time, have access to your information to enable them to provide those services to Terumo. Please rest assured that all companies providing such support services are required by Terumo to meet the same standards of data protection as Terumo and are prohibited from using the information for their own marketing purposes.

In certain special cases, we may disclose your personally identifiable information, such as in the following circumstances:

• When we have reason to believe that disclosing the information is necessary to identify, contact or bring legal action against someone who may be causing injury to you, or who is otherwise injuring or interfering with Terumo’s rights, property or operations, other users of this Site or anyone else could be harmed by such activities; or

• To comply with applicable laws, or in response to any demand by law enforcement authorities in connection with a criminal investigation, or civil or administrative authorities in connection with a pending civil case or administrative investigation.

As a result, you understand that your personal information will be subject to the laws of other jurisdictions and may be available, without notice to you, to foreign government authorities under lawful orders and laws applicable in such jurisdictions. By using this Site, you consent to any transfer of information outside of your country of business or residence.
