Information You Provide
In general, you may browse the Company Websites without providing any personal information. At our Websites, we may provide you with opportunities to sign up to receive information or services from us. As part of this process, we ask you to provide us with personal information about yourself (such as name, address, telephone number or e- mail address). For example, you may choose to register to receive e-mail updates about a Website, information about a particular health condition, or materials relating to products or services offered by the Company and its product-related co-promotion partners, and you may provide us with your e-mail address to receive such communications. You may always choose not to provide us with your personal information, and we will disclose to you at the time we collect your personal information whether it is required for you to receive the information or services you have requested.
To better understand and address your interests, and to keep the personal information we have about you accurate, we may correct or add to the personal information you provide to us at our Websites with personal information we receive from you offline or from other sources.
Automatically Collected Information -- Cookies and Other Website Information
Like most other commercial websites, we may use “cookie” and “web beacon” technology and web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used. Web beacons are transparent pixel images that are used in collecting information about Website visitor activities and e-mail response and tracking. For example, if we send you an e-mail message, we (or third parties providing services on our behalf) may collect information through web beacons to determine whether you have opened the e-mail message or clicked on links located within the e-mail message.
Information gathered through cookies and by our web server logs may include your IP address, your Internet browser (e.g., Netscape), your operating system (e.g., Windows 2000), the domain name of your internet service provider (e.g., AOL) the date and time of your visits, the pages viewed, the time spent at our Website, and the websites visited just before and just after our Website. This information may be associated with your personal information.
We may use aggregate information collected from visitors of our Websites to help us better understand visitors’ needs and how they use the Websites. Aggregate information about Website visitors that does not contain personal information may be shared with third parties.

The Company has a Privacy and Data Security Policy that provides for the proper use and protection of Social Security numbers obtained in the course of doing business with the

This policy applies to all methods of collection of Social Security numbers, including Social Security numbers obtained by oral, written and electronic means.
E-mail-a-Friend or Colleague
On some of the Company Websites, you can send a link or e-mail message to a friend or colleague. E-mail addresses you may provide for a friend or colleague will be used to send your friend or colleague information on your behalf and will not be collected or used by the Company or other third parties for any other purpose.
