Paragon Biosciences, LLC (“Paragon Biosciences” “we” or “us”) respects the privacy of information relating to individuals and values the confidence of its employees, customers, vendors and partners.
Paragon Biosciences, Inc., with offices in the United States, is responsible for processing your personally identifiable information.
Personally Identifiable Information
Paragon Biosciences only collects personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, job title, industry segment, telephone number and email address, when you voluntarily submit this information to Paragon Biosciences.
Cookies and Other Non-Personally Identifiable Information
We may sometimes collect information about your usage of Paragon Biosciences’ Site through cookies and similar technology. There are two types of cookies: session cookies (non-persistent cookies) and persistent cookies. Session cookies temporarily store non-personally identifiable information about your visit to Paragon Biosciences’ Site in your computer’s memory. The cookie is deleted as soon as you close your browser. Persistent or permanent cookies will uniquely identify your browser and will permanently save in your computer’s memory information requested by the Site.
With cookies, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.
We may also track the total number of visitors to the Site, the number of visitors to each page of the Site, and the domain names of visitors’ Internet service providers. We may ask users that have opted to receive information to complete a survey. No personally identifiable information is gathered in any of these processes.
We may use your personally identifiable information to:
communicate with you about Paragon Biosciences’ business;
provide publications, products and services you have requested;
invite you to, and register you for, events;
add you to mailing lists and send you marketing materials we believe will be of interest to you;
process and respond to requests, inquiries and complaints; and
for other purposes and operations which are reasonably related, such as administering, monitoring and improving this Site, and Paragon Biosciences’ products and services.
Paragon Biosciences does not sell any of your personally identifiable information for marketing or advertising purposes.
Cookies allow us to bring you the content and features likely to be of greatest interest to you based on your previous activities on Paragon Biosciences’ Site. We use other non-personally identifiable information, including information obtained through surveys, to improve this Site.
Storage and Transfer of Information
Paragon Biosciences may store personally identifiable data collected via this Site in an electronic database. In addition, personally identifiable data collected through the “Contact” Paragon Biosciences function on this Site may be stored by Paragon Biosciences at a CRM such as salesforce.com (or similar), while personally identifiable data collected through Paragon Biosciences’ virtual store may be stored by Paragon Biosciences at Paragon Biosciences’ virtual hosting site. Paragon Biosciences may also exchange such data with you over the internet or over intranet systems for the purposes of processing the data, mailing information to you in response to a request, or otherwise carrying out the services described above. We may also release your personally identifiable data in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or applicable law or regulation. Your information may be accessed by third-party service providers who will process that information solely for Paragon Biosciences’ benefit and in accordance with Paragon Biosciences’ instructions.
We use measures that are appropriate to protect your personally identifiable information against unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, and all Paragon Biosciences’ employees and any third-parties that process your personally identifiable information on Paragon Biosciences’ behalf are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your information.
While Paragon Biosciences makes every reasonable effort to protect the personally identifiable data collected through its Site, please be aware that there is always some risk involved when submitting data over the Internet. We cannot guarantee that Paragon Biosciences’ Site is 100% safe from illegal tampering or “hacking.”
We retain information that is collected through this Site for as long as needed for the purpose for which it was provided, or as otherwise required for Paragon Biosciences’ legitimate business purposes. Your information may be retained for longer periods if there are valid legal grounds, for example if required by law or court order or to defend or pursue legal claims.
Legal Basis for Processing Your Personally identifiable information
The majority of the personally identifiable information collected by Paragon Biosciences is provided by you voluntarily through your use of www.Paragon Biosciences.com, for example, when you complete a request on its “Contact” page and through a virtual store if you place an order for Paragon Biosciences’ products, and therefore is collected with your permission. The remaining personally identifiable information is collected for Paragon Biosciences’ legitimate business purposes, for example to monitor and improve the quality of Paragon Biosciences’ Site and Paragon Biosciences’ services, and to protect and defend Paragon Biosciences’ rights, property or safety or that of Paragon Biosciences’ customers and other users of the Site.
You have several rights regarding the processing of your personally identifiable information by Paragon Biosciences. Subject to any statutory or legal requirements applicable to Paragon Biosciences to maintain such personally identifiable information, you may:
request access to the personally identifiable information we process about you;
request corrections of your personally identifiable information;
request erasure or deletion of your personally identifiable information;
request restriction or further processing of your personally identifiable information;
object to the further processing of your personally identifiable information;
withdraw any future consent with future effect.
If at any time you wish to stop receiving emails or other communications from Paragon Biosciences, or if you have submitted personally identifiable information through Paragon Biosciences’ Site and would like to make any request, objection, or withdrawal as provided above, please notify us at info@ParagonBioSci.com.
You also have the right to complain to a data protection authority if you believe that your personally identifiable information has been collected or used in breach of relevant privacy legislation.
As a reminder to you when exchanging emails, any email that you send or receive on your employer’s email system may be the property of your employer. Consequently, your employer may have the ability to review your personally identifiable information sent via email.
Please note that although we attempt to adhere to requests to remove personally identifiable information from Paragon Biosciences’ records, it may not be possible to remove all copies depending on the way the information was submitted to us.
Your Web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, sites like ours that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the Site and some Site functionality may be lost.
