This registration information is used to provide and otherwise administer the service you requested.
Should you choose to register with our Website, you may be given the option of receiving email with information that we think you might find useful, including promotions, announcements of new services and products, and newsletters on particular health topics. If you decide, at any later time, that you no longer wish to receive these emails you may unsubscribe from our email list by following the instructions set out in each email communication.
Interactive Services: Our Website may offer various interactive services, such as care management tools, and features that enable consumers or healthcare professionals to submit customized email requests for information about diseases and therapies.
Our interactive services may require you to provide personal information in order to request information from us. We will collect your contact information as well as whatever personal information that you choose to include in your request. In addition, from time to time, we may offer you the opportunity to participate in one of our optional surveys or questionnaires.
We may use the information that you provide, including personal health information, to respond to you and otherwise administer the interactive service you request, to help us better understand how our products are used, or to help us improve the marketing of our products. We may also use the personal information that you provide to create customized offers, information, and services tailored to your interests and preferences.
The information you provide in interactive services may be linked with the personal information that you provided elsewhere on our Website. We may also combine personal information from users to create a summary of aggregate, non-identifiable data that we use for our business purposes, including research to improve our products and analyses that may help us better market our products.
Our Website may have a “Refer-a-Friend” and other similar features that permit you to send email to others. This feature requires you to submit your name and email address, as well as the name and email address of the recipient. We do not use the names or email addresses submitted in these circumstances for any other purpose without the consent of you or the email recipient.
Product Reports: If you use the Website to report a product experience, we may use the information you submit in our reports to Health Canada and other Canadian or international regulatory authorities, and as otherwise required of us by law. We may ask you for specific facts, including patient initials, age, and gender, and the prescribing physician. Applicable federal regulations may require us to collect personal information in order to report adverse drug events to Health Canada’s Health Products and Food Branch. We also may use the information you submit to contact the prescribing physician to follow up regarding an unexpected event involving the use of our product.
Additional Website Information
Visiting Our Website: In general, you can visit our Website without telling us who you are or submitting any personal information. However, we collect the IP (Internet protocol) addresses of all visitors to our Website and other related information such as page requests, browser type, operating system and average time spent on our Website. We use this information to help us understand our Website activity, and to monitor and improve our Website.
We may also use a third party to help us gather and analyze information about the areas that you visit on the Website to evaluate and improve the visitor experience and the convenience of the Website, and to help us evaluate some of the specific information related to your Website visits.
Tracer Tags & Web Beacons: We may use a technology called "tracer tags" or “Web Beacons” which are tiny graphic files embedded in a Website or e-mail that send information from your browser back to the beacon’s originating server. This technology allows us to understand which pages you visit on our Website and the sites you visit before and after ours. They may also let us know if you have opened an e-mail that we sent. These tracer tags are used to help us optimize and tailor our Website and email content.
CASL: We are committed to compliance with the law known as Canada’s Anti-Spam Legislation (“CASL”). Any electronic communication sent by us to outside parties is protected by a range of business procedures, processes and policies to ensure that such communication is done in compliance with CASL. In our electronic communications with outside parties, we comply with the rules established by CASL and enforced by various Canadian authorities. CASL regulates, and our policies generally apply to, each commercial electronic message we send (a “CEM”), which is an electronic message sent to an electronic address that, among its purposes, encourages participation in a commercial activity.
In addition to the above, and to provide transparency about our compliance, we have undertaken various initiatives in order to ensure we are compliant with CASL in various respects:
If you have received a CEM from us, and you believe that you should not have or you do not wish to receive them (even if we are allowed to send them), we will endeavour to respect your inbox preferences. Without limiting our legal rights or obligations, we try to ensure that our messages all contain useful identity information and unsubscribe or preferences link in our messages – if you check the CEM itself, you will find clear instructions on how to stop receiving CEMs from us or manage your mail preferences. When you unsubscribe, it should happen very quickly – but as required by CASL we will make sure it occurs within 10 business days. If you have any questions or concerns about our unsubscribe methods, you may contact us at the address indicated below.

We will not disclose, trade, rent, sell or otherwise transfer your personal information, without your consent, except as otherwise set out herein.

For example, we may use third party service providers to host our Website, administer certain of its services and features, respond to user enquiries, conduct user research, and manage and analyze website data. Our service providers are given the information they need to perform their designated functions, and we do not authorize them to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes.
Your personal information may be maintained and processed by our affiliates or third party service providers in the US or other jurisdictions, WHERE IT MAY BE SUBJECT TO THE LAWS OF THAT JURISDICTION, INCLUDING LAWS REGARDING THE DISCLOSURE OF PERSONAL INFORMATION TO GOVERNMENT AUTHORITIES. In addition, if you are visiting our Website from a country other than Canada, your communication with us through the Website or any services offered on the Website will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries. By using this Website or any of our services, you consent to the collection, storage, and processing of your information in Canada and in any country to which we may transfer your information in the course of our business operations.
