Privacy Policy

Effective Date: May 17, 2019

This Privacy Policy describes how Interscope Inc., collects and uses Personal Information about you through the use of our websites, and through email, text, and other electronic communications between you and Interscope Inc.

Interscope Inc. (“us”, “we”, or “our”) operates http://www.interscopemed.com (the “Site”). This Privacy Policy describes the way in which we collect, use and disclose the personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) we receive from users of the Site and any other websites that link to this Privacy Policy (the “Online Services”). When we refer to ourselves as “us”, “we” or “our” in this Privacy Policy we mean our entire company, including our affiliates such as subsidiaries.

By using the Online Services, you consent to the processing, collection and use of your Personal Information in accordance with this Privacy Policy now and as amended by us from time to time. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, you may not use the Site. This Privacy Policy is subject to change without notice from time to time in our sole discretion. You acknowledge that by accessing the Site after we have posted changes to this Privacy Policy, you are agreeing to this Privacy Policy as amended, so please check this Privacy Policy periodically for updates.

You should carefully read this Privacy Policy before using and/or submitting information through the Online Services. Please note that this Privacy Policy is not an exclusive statement of our privacy principles across all of our products and services. Other privacy principles or policies may apply depending on the products or services you obtain from us, or the jurisdiction in which you transact with us.

Data Controller, Data Protection Officer, and Representative

Interscope is the data controller of the Personal Information you provide through the Online Services.

We are the data controller of your Personal Information. At this time, we are not required to appoint a Data Protection Officer in the EU and have elected not to do so. We and our representative may be contacted in any manner set forth below in the “Contact Information” Section of this Privacy Policy.

Information Collection and Use

We collect different types of information about you, including information that may directly identify you, information that is about you but individually does not personally identify you, and information that we combine with our other users. This includes information that we collect directly from you or through automated collection technologies.

Below are the types of Personal Information that we might collect from you.

A. Information you provide

We and our Service Providers (defined below) collect information that you choose to provide to us when you use the Online Services by which you may be personally identified, including when you register to access the Online Services, sign up to receive emails or other communications, apply for a job, report a safety-related event related to one of our products (e.g., an adverse event, use during pregnancy or lactation, suspected interaction with other products, treatment errors such as overdose, usage outside the conditions in the label), or otherwise contact us with a question, comment, or request. This can include, but is not limited to: (a) your name, contact information, sex, and other registration information; (b) health information; (c) information you provide when submitting an employment application form; and (d) information you provide us when you contact us. If you report an experience or reaction involving one of our products, we may ask you for additional information, for example, to help us meet our reporting obligations under existing federal law. Any information collected about you from the Site can, from time to time, be associated with other identifying information we have about you.

If you are a medical professional and are using the Online Services for reasons other than reporting a product experience, you should make sure that you do not disclose identifiable information about your patients where not authorized by law.

B. Information automatically collected from you

We and our Service Providers (defined below) automatically collect certain technical information from your computer when you navigate through and interact with or as you use the Online Services that is about you but individually does not identify you, such as your Internet Protocol address, your browser type, your operating system, the pages you view through the Online Services, the pages you view immediately before and after you access the Online Services, the length of time that you spend using the Online Services, and the search terms you enter through the Online Services. This information allows us to recognize you and personalize your experience if you return to the Online Services using the same computer, and to improve the Online Services and the services we provide. We and our Service Providers (defined below) may collect this information using “cookies,” which are small text files that the Online Services save on your computer using your web browser and access when you return, web beacons, tracking pixels, or other technologies. From time to time, we may use or augment this information with information obtained by third parties.

C. Information from outside sources

In certain instances, we collect information about you from other sources, such as information about physicians or other health care professionals who register with the Online Services in order to verify their licensure status and identity.

Lawful Basis for Processing Your Personal Information

We have a lawful basis for our processing of your Personal Information, including processing for our legitimate interests (when balanced against your rights and freedoms), to fulfill our obligations to you under a contract with you, as required by law, and with your consent.

If you are in the European Union, the processing of your Personal Information is lawful only if it is permitted under the applicable data protection laws. We have a lawful basis for each of our processing activities (except when an exception applies as described below):

  • Consent. By using our Online Services, you consent to our collection, use, and sharing of your Personal Information as described in this privacy policy. If you do not consent to this privacy policy, please do not use the Online Services;

  • Legitimate Interests. We will process your Personal Information as necessary for our legitimate interests. Our legitimate interests are balanced against your rights and freedoms and we do not process your Personal Information if your rights and freedoms outweigh our legitimate interests. Our legitimate interests are to: facilitate communication between us and you; detect and correct bugs and to improve our Online Services; safeguard our IT infrastructure and intellectual property; detect and prevent fraud and other crime; promote and market our business; perform employment screening and to manage our workforce, assets, and business; develop our product and services;

  • As Required by Law. We may also process your Personal Information when we are required or permitted to by law; to comply with government inspections, audits, and other valid requests from government or other public authorities; to respond to legal process such as subpoenas; or as necessary for us to protect our interests or otherwise pursue our legal rights and remedies (for instance, when necessary to prevent or detect fraud, attacks against our network, or other criminal and tortious activities), defend litigation, and manage complaints or claims.

Special Categories of Information

We may process some Personal Information considered sensitive when necessary to carry out our obligations under the law or to protect our legitimate interests.

Your Rights Regarding Your Information and Accessing and Correcting Your Information

You may have certain rights under applicable data protection laws, including the right to access and update your Personal Information, restrict how it is used, transfer certain Personal Information to another controller, withdraw your consent at any time, and the right to have us erase certain Personal Information about you. You also have the right to complain to a supervisory authority about our processing of your Personal Information.

Applicable data protection laws may provide you with certain rights with regards to our processing of your Personal Information.

  • Access and Update. You can review and change your Personal Information by logging into the Online Services. You may also notify us through the Contact Information of any changes or errors in any Personal Information we have about you to ensure that it is complete, accurate, and as current as possible. We may also not be able to accommodate your request if we believe it would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

  • Restrictions. You have the right to restrict our processing of your Personal Information under certain circumstances. In particular, you can request we restrict our use of it if you contest its accuracy, if the processing of your Personal Information is determined to be unlawful, or if we no longer need your Personal Information for processing but we have retained it as permitted by law.

  • Portability. To the extent the Personal Information you provide to us is processed based on your consent, you have the right to request that we provide you a copy of, or access to, all or part of such Personal Information in structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. You also have the right to request that we transmit this Personal Information to another controller, when technically feasible.

  • Withdrawal of Consent. To the extent that our processing of your Personal Information is based on your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time. Withdrawing your consent will not, however, affect the lawfulness of the processing based on your consent before its withdrawal, and will not affect the lawfulness of our continued processing that is based on any other lawful basis for processing your Personal Information.

  • Right to be Forgotten. You have the right to request that we delete all of your Personal Information. We may not accommodate a request to erase information if we believe the deletion would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect. In all other cases, we will retain your Personal Information as set forth in this policy. In addition, we cannot completely delete your Personal Information as some data may rest in previous backups. These will be retained for the periods set forth in our disaster recovery policies. If you delete your User Contributions from the Online Services, copies of your User Contributions may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Online Services users. Proper access and use of information provided on the Online Services, including User Contributions, is governed by our terms of use at http://www.interscopemed.com/privacy-policy.

  • Complaints. You have the right to lodge a complaint with the applicable supervisory authority in the country you live in, the country you work in, or the country where you believe your rights under applicable data protection laws have been violated. However, before doing so, we request that you contact us directly in order to give us an opportunity to work directly with you to resolve any concerns about your privacy.

  • How You May Exercise Your Rights. You may exercise any of the above rights by contacting us through any of the methods listed under Contact Information below. If you contact us to exercise any of the foregoing rights, we may ask you for additional information to verify your identity. We reserve the right to limit or deny your request if you have failed to provide sufficient information to verify your identity or to satisfy our legal and business requirements. Please note that if you make unfounded, repetitive, or excessive requests (as determined in our reasonable discretion) to access your Personal Information, you may be charged a fee subject to a maximum set by applicable law.

Consent to Processing of Personal Information in the United States

We may process your Personal Information outside of your home country, including to the United States. We only do this when we are legally permitted to do so and when we have appropriate safeguards in place to protect your Personal Information.

If you are a resident of the European Economic Area (“EEA”), in order to provide Online Services to you, we may send and store your information outside of the EEA, including to the United States. Accordingly, your information may be transferred outside the country where you reside or are located, which may not provide the same level protection for your information as your home country, and may be available to the United States government or its agencies under a lawful order made in United States. In addition, we may transfer your information outside of the United States to our affiliates, business partners, and Service Providers located in other countries. By using the Online Services, you consent to such transfer to, and processing in, the United States and these other countries.

Your Personal Information is transferred by us to another country only if it is required or permitted under applicable data protection law and provided that there are appropriate safeguards in place to protect your Personal Information. To ensure your Personal Information (other than Personal Information you provide directly to us on our Site) is treated in accordance with this Privacy Policy, we use Data Protection Agreements between us and all other recipients of your data that include, where applicable, the Standard Contractual Clauses adopted by the European Commission (the “Standard Contractual Clauses”). The European Commission has determined that the transfer of Personal Information pursuant to the Standard Contractual Clauses provides for an adequate level of protection of your Personal Information. Under these Standard Contractual Clauses, you have the same rights as if your data was not transferred to such third party. You may request a copy of the Data Protection Agreement by contacting us through the Contact Information below.

Links to Other Websites

We do not control the collection and use of your information collected by third parties.

The Online Services may contain tools, technology or links to websites provided by third parties. We do not control the collection and use of your information collected by third parties. When possible, these organizations are under contractual obligations to use this data only for providing the services to us and to maintain this information strictly confidential. These third parties may, however, aggregate the information they collect with information from their other customers for their own purposes. 

Cookies

We use tracking technology to customize and improve your user experience with our Site, services and offerings and for our advertising to you.

We often collect information about you by using cookies, tracking pixels and other technologies. We use this information to better understand, customize and improve user experience with our Site, services and offerings, as well as to manage our advertising. For example, we use web analytics services that use these technologies to gather information to help us understand how visitors engage with and navigate our Site, e.g., how and when pages in a site are visited and by how many visitors. We are also able to offer our visitors a more customized, relevant experience on our sites using these technologies by delivering content and functionality based on your preferences and interests. Cookies are files with small amount of data, which may include an anonymous unique identifier.

Depending on their purpose, some cookies will only operate for the length of a single browsing session, while others have a longer life span to ensure that they fulfill their longer-term purposes. Your web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies or reject cookies, to notify you each time a cookie is sent to your browser, or to delete cookies that have already been set. If your browser is set to reject cookies, certain aspects of the Site that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the website, and some Site functionality may be lost. The “Help” section of your browser may tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies. To find out more about cookies you may visit http://www.aboutcookies.org.

Do Not Track Disclosures

We currently do not honor do-not-track signals that may be sent by some browsers.

Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in their web browsers. When a user turns on DNT, the browser sends a message to websites requesting that they don’t track the user. At this time, we ignore these signals. We do not change our practices, described elsewhere in this Privacy Policy, in response to DNT browser settings or signals. In particular, even if you have turned on DNT, we and others will continue to collect information about you and your activity through the use of cookies, tracking pixels and other technologies. For information about DNT, visit http://www.allaboutdnt.org.

Notice to California Residents

Under some circumstances, California law may provide you with the right to obtain a list of third parties (if any) that we provide your Personal Information to for their own direct marketing purposes.

Under California law, California residents may request a list of all Personal Information and the third parties to whom we have disclosed your Personal Information (as defined by California law) during the preceding year for those third parties’ direct marketing purposes. If you are a California resident and would like to receive such a list, please contact us at info@interscopemed.com. For any such request, include the statement “Your California Privacy Rights” in the body of your request, as well as your name, street address, city, state and zip code. Please provide enough information for us to determine if this applies to you. You must also attest to the fact that you are a California resident and provide a current California address for our response.

Security

Information transmitted over the Internet is not completely secure, but we do our best to protect your Personal Information. You can help protect your Personal Information and other information by keeping your password to our Online Services confidential.

We have implemented measures designed to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we do our best to protect your information, we cannot guarantee the security of your information transmitted to our Site. Any transmission of information is at your own risk. We are not responsible for circumvention of any privacy settings or security measures contained on the Site. Moreover, we are not responsible for the security of information you transmit to the Online Services over networks that we do not control, including the Internet and wireless networks.

Keep in mind that any passwords, ID numbers, or other special access numbers you might use to access any part of the Online Services are your responsibility, so you should safeguard them carefully. You should take steps to ensure that the computer you are using is adequately secured and protected against malicious software. Without adequate security measures (e.g., secure web browser configuration, up-to-date antivirus software, personal firewall software, no usage of software from dubious sources) there is a risk that the data and passwords you use to protect access to your data on the Online Services could be disclosed to unauthorized third parties.

Data Retention Periods

We retain your Personal Information for as long as you keep your account open. In some instances, we may keep it after you close your account, for example we may keep it:

  • on our backup and disaster recovery systems;

  • for as long as necessary to protect our legal interests; and to comply with other legal requirements

We will retain your Personal Information for the entire time that you keep your account open. After you close your account, we may retain your Personal Information:
