Privacy Statement

    1.  Privacy Statement.  This Website is operated by MicroVention, Inc. (“MicroVention”).  This Privacy Policy sets forth the policies that govern our collection, use, and disclosure of the information that you may provide via our Websites.  Before using or submitting information to this Website, please read this entire Privacy Policy.  This Website is governed solely by applicable Federal and State laws and governmental regulations in the United States of America.  Use of this Website constitutes your consent to application of such laws and regulations and to this Privacy Policy.  Whenever you submit information via this Website, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

    2. Information We Collect:

    a. Personal Information.  This Website may collect personal information from its visitors both by asking them specific questions and by facilitating direct communications with us via email, feedback forms, etc.  Some of the information that visitors submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with an individual, such as full name, address, email address, phone number, and so on).  If you use this Website to submit or request information related to a grant proposal or donation, additional information we may collect includes your hospital affiliation and details of your proposal.  In some cases, we may collect non-personally identifiable information that you elect to provide voluntarily, such as gender or zip code.  This Website may also offer some features and activities (such as newsletter subscriptions, downloads, etc.), which may require you to submit information to receive or benefit from them.  You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.

    b. Website Usage Information.  Like many other Websites, this Website may or may not also collect some information passively as you navigate through the Website (that is, this information is gathered without your actively providing the information), using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection.  Navigational data ("log files," "server logs," and "clickstream" data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the Website, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors.  One of the ways information may be passively collected is by use of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses.  An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet.  IP addresses are generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because most IP addresses are dynamic (they change each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to any one user’s computer).  We may use your IP address to improve or administer the Website, diagnose server problems, report aggregate information, or to determine the fastest connection route between your computer and our Website.  We may also collect your website usage information by means of "cookies." A cookie is a small data text file, which a website stores on your computer's hard drive (if your Web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify you.  "Session cookies" are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your Web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off.  Session cookies are used to improve navigation on websites and to collect aggregate statistical information.  This Website may use both cookies and session cookies.  If you do not wish to receive cookies from this or any other website, you can change your computer's settings so that it will no longer accept cookies.  Internet tags (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the Website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor's computer.  This Website may or may not use Internet tags.

    c. Information Use and Disclosure.  Your name, address, email address, and any other personally identifiable information you provide may be used by MicroVention to provide you with information about MicroVention products, clinical or other health issues, or to develop services concerning neurovascular diseases and related topics.  MicroVention will not sell or rent the personally identifiable information collected via this Website to a third party.  We reserve the right to disclose information to respond to duly authorized information requests of governmental authorities, where required by law, to protect our interests or property, to prevent fraud or other illegal activity perpetrated through the Website, or to prevent imminent harm to any person or group of people, and also to share all information submitted without restriction with affiliate and/or related entities and other third parties engaged to provide services to MicroVention.  If ownership of all or substantially all of MicroVention were to change, your information may be transferred to the new owner so that the Site can continue to operate.  In any such transfer of information, your information would remain subject to the promises made in any pre-existing privacy policy.  You can notify MicroVention that you wish to discontinue receiving information at any time.  We may use your information to improve the value of our Website's content, to present the Website in a fashion customized to match your preferences, to supply information to you (if you requested it), for research and marketing purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.  We may combine personally identifiable information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection.  We will also make full use of all information acquired through this Website that is not personally identifiable.

    d. Security.  Please bear in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free.  More specifically, email sent to or from this Website may not be secure.  As a result, you should take particular care in deciding what information you send via email.  Please take care to safeguard any passwords, ID numbers, or other special access numbers you might use to access any part of this Website; such information is your responsibility.  MicroVention takes reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction, but does not and cannot guarantee such protection.

    e. Links to Other Websites.  Links or references to other websites may appear within this Website.  We do not control these websites.  You should be aware that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any websites other than those operated by MicroVention.  Visitors to other Websites are encouraged to read those privacy policies before exploring them.

    f. Children’s Privacy.  Children should always get permission from their parents before sending any information about themselves (such as their names, email addresses, and phone numbers) over the Internet, to us or to anyone else.  The Website is not directed at individuals under 18, and we will not knowingly allow anyone under 18 to provide us any personally identifying information; if you are under 18, please do not provide any information about yourself on this Website.

    g. How to Contact Us.  If you have any questions, comments, or concerns about this Privacy Policy or the information collection practices of this Website, please contact us.

    h. Changes to This Privacy Policy.  MicroVention reserves the right to modify, add or remove portions of this Privacy Policy at any time and in its sole and absolute discretion.  Any changes to this Privacy Policy will be posted on this Website.  Please check back periodically, and especially before you provide any personally identifiable information.
