What Personal Information About Users Does Biotech Forecast Collect?
1. Information You Provide to Us:
We receive and store any information you enter on our website or provide to us in any other way. You can choose not to provide us with certain information, but then you may not be able to take advantage of many of our features. The personal information you provide is used for such purposes as registration. In order for you to use Biotech Forecast services, such as posting reviews or comments, or following favorites you must complete a registration form. As part of this registration form, we require your email address. Biotech Forecast allows other users to browse information that you have submitted or commented on. This information is made available in many areas of Biotech Forecast including your member profile, reviews, blog posts, and comments. Biotech Forecast may choose to post this data on other site features in the future. Biotech Forecast allows other users to see the information within your member profile should you provide this optional information.
2. Automatic Information:
We receive and store certain types of information whenever you interact with us. Biotech Forecast automatically receives and records certain “traffic data” on our server logs from your browser including your IP address, Biotech Forecast cookie information, and the page you requested. Biotech Forecast uses this traffic data to help diagnose problems with its servers, analyze trends and administer the website. Biotech Forecast may also add, on any page, the total number of times that page has been viewed.
Biotech Forecast Partners and Sponsors
Some Biotech Forecast products and services are offered in conjunction with a non-affiliated partner. To provide you with some of these products and services, the partner may need to collect and maintain personal information. In these instances, you will be notified before any such data is collected or transferred and may decide not to use that particular service or feature. Biotech Forecast may need to share non-identifying and aggregate information (except as described above), but not personal information, with such partners in order to administer the co-branded products or services offered.
Biotech Forecast may display online advertisements. We share aggregated and non-identifying information about our Visitors and Members collected through the registration process as well as through online surveys and promotions with these advertisers. Additionally, in some instances, we use this aggregated and non-identifying information to deliver tailored advertisements. For instance, an advertiser might tell us the audience they want to reach and provide us with an advertisement tailored to that audience. Based upon the aggregated and non-identifying information we have collected, we may then display the advertisement to the intended audience. However, Biotech Forecast does not share personal information about its Visitors or Members with these advertisers.
Email Marketing From Third Party Sponsors
In addition, from time to time, Biotech Forecast sends, on behalf of third parties, promotions via email to some or all of its subscribers. However, in no event does Biotech Forecast sell or otherwise transfer to third parties the email addresses of its subscribers. Biotech Forecast strictly maintains the confidentiality of its subscribers’ email addresses. In addition, users are always given the opportunity of opting-out of these promotions.
Responses to Email Inquiries
When Visitors or Members send email inquiries to Biotech Forecast or use the Contact Us page, we use the return email address to answer the email inquiry we receive. Biotech Forecast does not use the return email address for any other purpose and does not share the return email address with any third party.
Voluntary Customer Surveys
We may periodically conduct both business and individual customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us to improve the types of services we offer and how we provide them to you. Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even if a third party conducts the survey. Participation in our customer surveys is voluntary. We take the information we receive from individuals responding to our Customer Surveys and combine (or aggregate) it with the responses from other Biotech Forecast customers to create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our services to you, and to develop new services and products. This aggregated; non-personally-identifying information may be shared with third parties.
