Privacy Policy

This is the official privacy policy governing the use of the Accellent website located at www.accellent.com, as well as all of the web locations and Internet addresses (e.g., URLs, domain names and pages) which we own or control (the "Website"). Please read this Privacy Policy carefully. Privacy is very important to us. We also understand that privacy is very important to you. This Privacy Policy governs the personal information collected by our Website, but does not cover any other information, whether collected in any other manner or for any other purpose, nor on any other website or service unless specifically stated. This Website and this Privacy Policy are intended for a U.S. audience. If you are located outside of the U.S. and you use or attempt to use our Website, you do so at your own risk and you are responsible for compliance with any applicable local and/or national laws, rules and regulations and, if applicable, international treaties.

We may change this Privacy Policy at any time and for any reason. If we decide to make a significant change to our Privacy Policy, we will post a notice on the homepage of our Website for a period of time after the change is made. We encourage you to review this Privacy Policy each time you visit the website.

By using this Website, you agree to the terms of the most recent version of this Privacy Policy. Please read our Terms of Use to understand the general rules about your use of this Website. Except as written in any other disclaimers, policies, terms of use, or other notices on this Website, this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use are the complete agreement between you and Accellent with respect to your use of this Website. You may be subject to additional terms that may apply when you access particular services or materials on certain areas in this Website, or by following a link from this Website.

a. Introduction

The information we receive, and how we use it, depends on what you do when visiting our Website. We collect and use your non-personal information (information that is not identifiable to you personally) differently than your personal information.

b. What is personal information?

Personal information is information we collect through this Website that we can use to specifically identify or contact you, such as your:

  • name
  • telephone number
  • address
  • e-mail address
  • employer and/or
  • date of birth

In some areas on this Website you have the opportunity to send us personal information about yourself. For example, you may fill out a registration form, a survey or an e-mail form.

You also may choose to allow us to personalize your visits to the Website, in which case we will ask you for certain personal information to make your visits to our Website more helpful to you. When this information is combined with the non-personal information that we collect through cookies (described below), we will be able to tell that you have visited our Website before and can personalize your access to our Website, for example, by telling you about new features that may be of interest to you. It is your responsibility to give us current, complete, truthful and accurate information, and to keep the personal information that you provide us up to date. We cannot and shall not be responsible for any problems or liability that may arise if you do not give us accurate, truthful or complete information, or you fail to update the information you give us.

c. How does Accellent keep and use personal information?

We may keep and use personal information we collect from you through this Website to provide you with access to this Website. In addition, we may keep and use your personal information:

  • respond to your requests
  • personalize your access to our Website; for example, by telling you about new features that may be of interest to you
  • develop records for our internal business use, including records of your personal information
  • contact you with information that might be of interest to you, including information about products and services of ours and of others for analytical purposes; also to research and develop
  • improve programs, products, services and content
  • remove your personal identifiers (your name, e-mail address, social security number, etc). In this case, you would no longer be identified as a single, unique individual.
  • Once we have de-identified information, it is non-personal information and we may treat it like other non-personal information.
  • enforce this Privacy Policy and other rules about your use of this Website
  • protect our rights or property
  • protect someone's health, safety or welfare and/or
  • comply with any law or regulation, court order or other legal process
d. Does Accellent ever share personal information with third parties?

Accellent will not share your personal information collected from this Website with an unrelated third party without your permission except as otherwise provided in this Privacy Policy.

In the ordinary course of business, if you grant us permission, we will share some personal information with companies that we hire to perform services or functions on our behalf. For example, we may use different vendors or suppliers to ship you products that you order on our Website. In these cases, we provide the vendor with information to process your order such as your name and mailing address. In all cases in which we share your personal information with a third party, we will not authorize them to keep, disclose or use your information with others except for the purpose of providing the services we asked them to provide.

We will not sell, exchange or publish your personal information, except in conjunction with a corporate sale, merger, dissolution, or acquisition.

We may be legally compelled to release your personal information in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, law or regulation. We may cooperate with law enforcement authorities in investigating and prosecuting Website visitors who violate our rules or engage in behavior which is harmful to other visitors (or illegal).

We may disclose your personal information to third parties if we feel that the disclosure is necessary to:

  • enforce this Privacy Policy and the other rules about your use of this Website
  • protect our rights or property
  • protect someone's health, safety or welfare and/or
  • comply with any law or regulation, court order or other legal process

Please note: In addition to the ways that we may keep, disclose, and use information described in this Privacy Statement, we also may keep, disclose and use personally identifiable information that you give us through this website in ways that are consistent with FDA rules and regulations and other governmental guidance, directions, regulation, and laws.

e. What about privacy on other websites?

This Website may contain links to other websites. Some of those websites may be operated by Accellent, and some may be operated by third parties. We provide the links for your convenience, but we do not review, control or monitor the privacy practices of websites operated by others. This Privacy Policy does not apply to any other website, even the other Accellent websites. We are not responsible for the performance of websites operated by third parties or for your business dealings with them. Therefore, whenever you leave this Website we recommend that you review each website's privacy practices and make your own conclusions regarding the adequacy of these practices.

f. What is non-personal Information?

Non-personal information is information we collect through this Website that does not identify you as an individual person. It may include information such as the following:

  • the type of web browser software you use (for example, Firefox or Internet Explorer)
  • the name of the domain from which you access the Internet
  • the Internet address of the Website from which you linked directly to our Website
  • the date and time you access our Website
  • which pages you have visited on our Website
  • personal information that has been de-identified

If you visit our Website to read or download information, such as information about one of our products or services, we may collect certain non-personal information about you from your computer. This information is collected from your computer's web browser: If you only read or download information on our Website, we do not collect or learn your name, e-mail address, home address, or other personal information about you. We may place a text file called a cookie in the browser files of your computer when you visit. The cookie may be stored on your computer's hard drive. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our Website may not work properly for you if you do so. We will not allow third parties to place cookies on our Website. We will use non-personal information from you to help us make this Website more useful to visitors. We also will use non-personal information for other business purposes. For example, we may use non-personal information or aggregate de-identified personal information to:

  • create reports for internal use to develop programs, products, services or content
  • customize the information or services that are of interest to you
  • share it with or sell it to third parties and/or
  • provide aggregated "traffic statistics" and "response rates" to third parties
g. Does Accellent ever communicate directly with visitors to this Website?

We may contact you periodically by e-mail, mail or telephone to provide information regarding programs, products, services and content that may be of interest to you. In addition, some of the features on this Website allow you to communicate with us using an online form. If your communication requests a response from us, we will send you a response via e-mail. The e-mail response or confirmation may include your personal information, such as your name, address, etc. We cannot guarantee that our e-mails to you will be secure from unauthorized interception.

h. Are there special rules about children's privacy?

Our Website is offered and made available only to users 13 years of age or older. If you are not yet 13 years old, please discontinue using our Website. We care about protecting the online privacy of children. We will not intentionally collect any personal information (such as a child's name or e-mail address) from children under the age of 13. If you think that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, please contact us and we will act expeditiously to delete any such personal information.

i. What about Website security?

We maintain reasonable physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
