Please read this entire Policy before using or submitting information to any of the Sites. By using any of the Sites, you are deemed to agree to the terms of this Policy, so please do not use any of the Sites if you do not agree with these terms.
We may update this Policy at any time. Any changes to the Policy will become effective upon the date of our posting of the revised Policy on the Sites. If you visit any of the Sites following the effective date of the revised Policy, you will be deemed to have accepted the Policy’s updated terms.
In general, we have designed the Sites to minimize the amount of personal information collected and request only the information that is required to ensure that visitors can effectively participate in our activities and events. On the Sites, you may be able to enter contests, subscribe to services or otherwise respond to certain offers and opportunities. In order to accomplish this, it may be necessary for you to voluntarily provide some of the following types of personally identifiable information: name, address, e-mail address, date of birth, telephone number, fax number, and information about your interests and use of various products, programs and services.
The Sites also may collect information from your computer or other access device when you visit the Sites. This may be done through different types of tracking technologies, including “cookies.” A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site, to track your preferences and selections, or to show you advertisements based on your interests, such as banner ads relating to Chattem products and services. Cookies may be placed on your computer by Chattem (a “first-party cookie”) or by another company or advertiser that Chattem engages to provide services or advertising on the Sites (a “third-party cookie”). It is possible that these cookies could be used in combination with other information to identify you.
Information stored in first-party cookies associated with a Chattem Site will be transmitted back to us. Information stored in third-party cookies may be transmitted to the party placing the cookie, so that they can deliver to you messages and advertisements based on your interests as you browse the Internet. You may be able to opt-out of third-parties using cookies to deliver interest-based advertising to you by visiting www.aboutads.info/choices/. With most Internet browsers, you can also erase cookies from your computer’s hard drive, block all cookies, block specific kinds of cookies, or even receive a warning before a cookie is placed on your system. (Please refer to your browser instructions or help button to learn more about cookies.) You should be aware, however, that cookies might be necessary to provide you with certain features (e.g., customized delivery of information) available on Chattem Sites.
Certain web browsers and other programs may be used to signal your preferences to Chattem about how or whether Chattem or third parties may collect information about your online activities through cookies and other tracking technologies. Currently, Chattem does not respond to such “Do-Not-Track” signals.
Web Logs: We may automatically collect and store web log information (a log regarding use of the Sites) relating to your computer and your visit, such as the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet address of the website from which you linked to a Chattem Site, how long you spent on the Site and which pages you visited; your computer's operating system and browser software; and your Internet protocol (IP) address.
Pixel Tags: We also may track your usage of the Sites through pixel tags (also called clear gifs or web beacons). A pixel tag is a tiny graphic on a web page which sends the website server information (such as the IP address and browser type) related to the website visitor's computer. Pixel tags may be placed on online advertisements that bring people to a Chattem Site and on different pages of our sites, so that we can learn, for example, how many times a page is opened and what specific types of information our Site users have consulted.
[Social Plugins: In addition, we may use social plugins (e.g., the Facebook “Like” button) to enable you to easily share information with others. When you visit one of our Sites, the operator of the social plugin may be able to place a cookie on your computer, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited the Site. If you are logged into the associated social media website (e.g., Facebook) while browsing on our Site, the social plugin allows that social media website to learn that you have visited our Site. The social plugin may also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on our Site with other users of the social media website. For more information about the information shared via a particular social media plugin, you should refer to that social media website’s privacy statement.]
We may use the information that we collect about you for any or all of the following purposes:
Responding to Requests. To respond to your requests, such as to answer your questions sent through the “Contact Us” form on the Sites.
Providing Information. To provide you with information regarding Chattem products, resources or services that may be available to you.
Communications with You. If you join our mailing list or otherwise provide your contact information to us, we may use that information to communicate directly with you, such as to respond to your inquiries; to inform you when you have won one of our contests, or to offer you additional information about our products, programs, services, promotions or offers that we believe may be of interest to you. You may opt out of receiving any of our commercial communications, as described in those communications.
Chattem Business Purposes. We use information we collect from you for our internal business purposes, such as to help us improve the Sites, including by requesting feedback from you, and for related purposes such as data analysis, audits, enhancing the Sites, and identifying usage trends.
Certain information we receive online may on occasion be combined with our other records to enhance our ability to market those products or services we believe may be of interest to you.
We may disclose the information we collect from you to companies affiliated with Chattem, such as Sanofi-aventis U.S. LLC and Sanofi US Services Inc., and also, in limited circumstances as described below, to certain unaffiliated third parties. We do not share personal information collected from users of our Sites with unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing purposes.
Third Party Service Providers. We may share information collected from Site users with unaffiliated third parties who provide us with services, such as the designer of the Site and others who assist us with technology, data analysis, or similar services. We may, for example, share your e-mail address with a social media website so that we may offer you information about Chattem on or through such other websites.
Acquirers or Assignees. In the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of Chattem or its assets, we may transfer any and all information that we collect from Site users to the acquiring party or assignee.
Entities Entitled Under Law. We may disclose information collected from Site users in the following circumstances: (i) when required by applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (ii) to comply with legal process (iii) to respond to requests from public and government authorities; (iv) to enforce the terms and conditions for use of the Sites, including this Policy; (v) to protect and defend our rights and property; (vi) to protect the interests of Chattem or others; and (vii) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. We have no obligation to notify you of such disclosures, except as required by applicable law.
We take reasonable measures to safeguard against unauthorized disclosures of information collected from Site users. We cannot assure you that personally identifiable information that we collect will never be disclosed in a manner that is inconsistent with this Policy. We have, however, put in place appropriate physical, electronic and administrative safeguards to help prevent the unauthorized access and use of the information we collect online.
We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If we learn that we have personal information on a child under the age of 13, we will delete that information from our systems. Chattem encourages parents to supervise their children’s use of the Internet.
By using the Sites, you are deemed to understand and unambiguously consent to the collection and processing of your personal information in the United States, with the awareness that the laws of the United States may not provide as much protection for personal information as the laws of certain other countries or territories.
