Privacy Policy

Please note that by accessing and using this website you automatically consent to us using any information provided by you in line with this policy. 

Ferring thanks you for visiting its website. Because we are committed to respecting the privacy of our website visitors, this website Privacy Policy describes the information we may collect from you during your visit to our site and how we may use it, and how we will protect the information which you may opt to provide. This policy explains the efforts to balance our business interests in collecting and using the information we receive from you with your need for appropriate protection and management of any personally identifiable information that you share with us. 

Information We Collect About You Through Your Use of Our Website 

Ferring may collect personal information about you. Personal information includes your name, address, phone number, e-mail address or any other information which might reasonably be used to identify you individually. Ferring collects personal information from website visitors only when it is voluntarily provided with their consent. Ferring will not otherwise collect this information from you on our website.

At those portions of our website where we provide you with the option to input personal information, we notify you of the uses we intend to make of that information. 

The Ferring website may also collect information from you that is not personally identifiable. For example, we might track information about the date and time visitors access our site, the type of web browser they used, and the website from which they connected to our site. Our websites collect this information by depositing certain bits of information called "cookies" in a visitor's computer. This technology does not collect an individual visitor's personally identifiable information. Rather, this information is collected in an aggregate form. The cookies can tell us how and when pages in a website were visited and by how many people. We may use third parties to perform these data analytical services for us. This aggregate information will enable us to improve our websites to serve and inform you better. It also may allow you to shortcut access to points of interest on our website when you re-enter our system. Attaching this device to your system has no effect on how it performs.

How We Use Your Information

When Ferring receives personal information, we may use it for reasonable business purposes, such as: 

  • communicate with you about, and provide you with information we believe may be of interest; 
  • respond to your inquiries;
  • perform data analyses (including market and consumer research, economic impact analyses, demographic analyses and anonymisation and aggregation of personal information);  
  • operate, evaluate and improve our business (including developing new products and services; enhancing, improving and analyzing our products and services; managing our communications; and performing accounting, auditing and other internal functions);
  • protect against, identify and prevent fraud, copyright infringement, unauthorized use and distribution of protected content and other criminal activity; and
  • comply with and enforce applicable legal requirements, relevant industry standards and our policies, including our Terms of Use.

Information We Share

We do not disclose personal information we obtain about you, except as described in this Privacy Policy.  We may share your personal information with our affiliates and subsidiaries. We also may share personal information with service providers who perform services on our behalf based on our instructions.  We do not authorize these service providers to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or comply with legal requirements. Examples of these service providers include entities that provide web hosting, analytics and email list management services.

Personal information will not be sold or rented by Ferring unless the user is first notified and expressly consents to such transfer.

Data Transfers    

We may transfer the personal information we collect about you to recipients in countries other than the country in which the information originally was collected.  Those countries may not have the same data protection laws as the country in which you initially provided the information.  When we transfer your information to recipients in other countries (such as the United States), we will protect that information as described in this Privacy Policy.  

If you are located in the European Economic Area (“EEA”) or Switzerland, we will comply with applicable legal requirements providing adequate protection for the transfer of personal information to recipients in countries outside of the EEA or Switzerland.  

Links to Other Sites

As a resource to our visitors, Ferring may provide links to other websites. We try to carefully choose websites, which we believe are useful and meet our high standards for the accuracy and utility of information. However, because website design and content can change so quickly, we cannot guarantee the standards of every website to which we link. Likewise, we are not responsible for the content of any non-Ferring site. We also cannot guarantee the privacy policies of these other sites and suggest you check the privacy policies of those sites directly.

Your Rights and Choices 

We offer you certain choices in connection with the personal information we collect from you.  To update your preferences, ask us to remove your information from our mailing lists or submit a request, please contact us as indicated in the “How to Contact Us” section of this Privacy Policy To the extent provided by the law of your jurisdiction, you may request access to the personal information we maintain about you or request that we correct, amend, delete or block the information by contacting us as indicated below.  Where provided by law, you may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us or object at any time on legitimate grounds to the processing of your personal information, and we will apply your preferences going forward. 

Information Security

We maintain administrative, technical and physical safeguards designed to protect the information you provide on our website against accidental, unlawful or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access, disclosure or use. Unauthorised third parties should not be able to access it during transmission. We will store the information that you share with us securely and will take appropriate steps to protect it from unauthorised access or disclosure. While no security steps can offer 100 percent protection, we utilise state-of-the-art technology and systems to prevent unauthorised access to the information we hold. We will limit access to this information to those Ferring personnel with a need to know. We educate our staff about their duty to protect your privacy.

Children

Ferring does not intentionally collect or retain personally identifiable information about children who are younger than 18 years of age. If your child may have submitted information to us without indicating their actual age, and you would like it removed, please contact us and we will delete it immediately.

Any changes to this privacy policy will be communicated promptly at this location. Please check the privacy policy periodically to review any changes that may have been made.
