13. Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, phone number, e-mail address or any other information which might reasonably be used to identify you individually. Vifor Ltd. collects personally identifiable information from web site visitors only when it is voluntarily provided. Vifor Ltd. will not otherwise collect this information from you on our web site. At those portions of our web site where we provide you with the option to input personally identifiable information, we notify you of the uses we intend to make of that information in any given instance. When Vifor Ltd. receives personally identifiable information, we may use it for reasonable business purposes, just as non-Internet businesses do. For example, we may use this information to contact you, via e-mail or regular mail, to provide you with information we believe may be of interest. It might also be used for compiling data and analyses to understand and serve our customers' needs. Data is also compiled to evaluate the use and utility of the services we provide on-line. Your information may be transferred for processing and use to Vifor Ltd. facilities in other countries and regions of the world. Personally identifiable information will not be sold or rented by Vifor Ltd. unless the user is first notified and expressly consents to such transfer.
14. Collective/Aggregate Data
Vifor Ltd's web site may also collect information from you that are 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 web site from which they connected to our site. Our web sites 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 web site were visited and by how many people. This aggregate information will enable us to improve our web sites to serve and inform you better. It also may allow you to shortcut access to points of interest on our web site when you re-enter our system. Attaching this device to your system has no effect on how it performs.
15. Links to Other Sites
As a resource to our visitors, Vifor Ltd. may provide links to other web sites. We try to carefully choose web sites, which we believe are useful and meet our high standards for the accuracy and utility of information. However, because web site design and content can change so quickly, we cannot guarantee the standards of every web site to which we link. Likewise, we are not responsible for the content of any non-Vifor Ltd. site. We also cannot guarantee the privacy policies of these other sites and suggest you check the privacy policies of those sites directly.
