The submission of any unsolicited information, such as questions, comments, or suggestions, to Ferring, either through this website or by any other means of communication, shall NOT be considered confidential. Ferring shall have no obligation to you of any kind with respect to such information. By submitting any information to Ferring, you understand that Ferring shall be free to reproduce, use, disclose, display, exhibit, transmit, perform, create derivative works, and distribute the information to others without limitation, and to authorise others to do the same.

These website usage terms constitute the entire agreement between Ferring and you relating to the subject matter herein and you agree to indemnify Ferring for any claims or damages resulting from your failure to abide by these terms and conditions. The Ferring website may be unavailable from time to time due to mechanical, telecommunication, software, hardware and third-party vendor failures, updating or construction.

Personally Identifiable Information
Personally identifiable information includes your name, address, phone number, e-mail address or any other information which might reasonably be used to identify you individually. Ferring collects personally identifiable information from website visitors only when it is voluntarily provided. Ferring will not otherwise collect this information from you on our website. At those portions of our website where we provide you with the option to input personally identifiable information, we notify you of the uses we intend to make of that information in any given instance. When Ferring receives personally identifiable information, we may use it for reasonable business purposes, just as non-Internet businesses do. For example, we may use this information to contact you, via e-mail or regular mail, to provide you with information we believe may be of interest. It might also be used for compiling data and analyses to understand and serve our customers' needs. Data is also compiled to evaluate the use and utility of the services we provide on-line. Your information may be transferred for processing and use to Ferring facilities in other countries and regions of the world. Personally identifiable information will not be sold or rented by Ferring unless the user is first notified and expressly consents to such transfer.
The Ferring website may also collect information from you that is not personally identifiable. For example, we might track information about the date and time visitors access our site, the type of web browser they used, and the website from which they connected to our site. Our websites collect this information by depositing certain bits of information called "cookies" in a visitor's computer. This technology does not collect an individual visitor's personally identifiable information. Rather, this information is collected in an aggregate form. The cookies can tell us how and when pages in a website were visited and by how many people. This aggregate information will enable us to improve our websites to serve and inform you better. It also may allow you to shortcut access to points of interest on our website when you re-enter our system. Attaching this device to your system has no effect on how it performs.
Links To Other Sites
As a resource to our visitors, Ferring may provide links to other websites. We try to carefully choose websites, which we believe are useful and meet our high standards for the accuracy and utility of information. However, because website design and content can change so quickly, we cannot guarantee the standards of every website to which we link. Likewise, we are not responsible for the content of any non-Ferring site. We also cannot guarantee the privacy policies of these other sites and suggest you check the privacy policies of those sites directly.
If you wish to stop receiving any e-mails or other communications from Ferring which may be sent to you in the future based on your request for this information, or if you have submitted personally identifiable information through a Ferring website and would like to have that information deleted from our records, please notify us via the contact form on the this site. Your wishes in these matters will be honoured.
All information transmitted to this Ferring website is secure to the extent possible using existing technology. Unauthorised third parties should not be able to access it during transmission. We will store the information that you share with us securely and will take appropriate steps to protect it from unauthorised access or disclosure. While no security steps can offer 100 percent protection, we utilise state-of-the-art technology and systems to prevent unauthorised access to the information we hold. We will limit access to this information to those Ferring personnel with a need to know. We educate our staff about their duty to protect your privacy.
Ferring does not intentionally collect or retain personally identifiable information about children who are younger than 18 years of age. If your child may have submitted information to us without indicating their actual age, and you would like it removed, please advise us through the contact form on the site, and we will delete it immediately.
