Information We Collect
Personal information that you provide: You may visit and browse the Site without providing any personal information. We may, however, collect personal information that you provide to us on a voluntary basis. When we ask for your personal information, it is so we can provide you information about products and services that may be of interest to you. However, you can always choose to opt out of these messages about products or services at a later time.
Information collected from other sources: We may obtain information about you from other sources, including social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn that you use to connect with us or the Site. This information may include name, user name, demographic information, updated address or contact information, interests, and publicly-observed data, such as from social media and online activity.
How We Use The Information We Collect
We will generally use the information that we collect to help us operate the Site, to respond to your requests, to help us understand our users and their preferences, and to market products and services to our Site’s users that may be of interest to them. The following provides a more specific discussion of our uses and disclosures of the information that we collect. We will seek your consent before we use your personal information for any other purposes.
To communicate with you about products or services that you may be interested in: We, or our authorized dealers or representatives, may use the personal information collected through our Site to provide you information about the Upjohn Institute’s or its affiliates’ products or services that we believe you may be interested in. You will always be given the opportunity to unsubscribe or opt out of receiving further electronic communications or marketing emails by following the unsubscribe instructions in the email communication, or you may contact us using the information provided below to be removed from all of our mailing lists.
Statistical analyses of Aggregate Information and the use of Google Analytics: We may use an analytics provider to help us gather Aggregate Information. We do not and will not attempt to associate this data with personally identifiable data unless required to do so to cooperate with law enforcement activity or other governmental request or to comply with law. We may use this information to gain a better understanding of the users of our Site, to improve our Site, and to improve our services and product offerings. Currently, we use Google Analytics and New Relic to perform such functions. Depending on the type of browser and device that you use, you may have the ability to control the type of information that these providers use, and you may opt-out of having made your activity on the Site available to Google Analytics by installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on. For more information on the privacy practices of Google, or to install the opt-out browser, please visit www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. We reserve the right to license or sell Aggregate Information about the visitors to and users of our Site, but this information will not be individually identifiable.
Business operations, law enforcement and legal actions: We may release your information without prior notice when we believe it is appropriate to prevent fraud; to comply with law or to cooperate with law enforcement activity or other governmental request; to respond to subpoenas, court orders or administrative agency requests for information; to enforce our policies; to protect the rights, property and safety of our business and of others; or when required or otherwise permitted by law. For example, we may share information with law enforcement to reduce the risk of fraud or if someone uses or attempts to use our Site for illegal reasons. If there is a sale or merger of the company, division or business unit that operates the Site, we may also transfer the information we have collected in connection with such sale or merger.
Customized experience: We may use the information that we have about you to provide and personalize some of the Site’s features or services (including ads), including with the help of automated systems and inferences we make, so that the Site can be made more relevant and useful to you and others. However, we do not use automated decision-making without human intervention, including profiling, in a way that produces legal effects concerning you or otherwise significantly affects you.
