Last Update: December 01, 2011

General
This web site and Privacy Policy were developed for residents of the United States. If you are a resident of another country or you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, please close out of the site without providing any personal information.

This Privacy Policy explains how we collect and use information about online visitors and particularly how we handle the personal information that you provide to us on web sites controlled by Fresenius Kabi USA (including its divisions and affiliates) (collectively "Fresenius Kabi USA web sites") which link to this Privacy Policy (referred to as "Fresenius Kabi USA web sites"). This Privacy Policy does not apply to personal information collected from you offline, to Fresenius Kabi USA web sites that do not link to this Privacy Policy, to people from countries other than the United States, or to third-party web sites to which Fresenius Kabi USA web sites may link. Your use of Fresenius Kabi USA web sites which link to this Privacy Policy is subject to this Privacy Policy and the Terms of Use.

Please read this Privacy Policy before using Fresenius Kabi USA web sites or submitting personal information to us.

How does this Privacy Policy define "personal information"?
"Personal information" means information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you and which is submitted to and/or collected by Fresenius Kabi USA web sites and maintained by Fresenius Kabi USA in an accessible form. Examples of personal information include your name, your postal address and your telephone number. Data that are not personal, such as questions, comments, ideas and suggestions excluding personal information, shall be deemed to be non-confidential, and Fresenius Kabi USA shall be free to disclose and use the same, without any obligation whatsoever to you, for any purpose and through any means.

How does Fresenius Kabi USA collect information online?
Fresenius Kabi USA collects information in two ways:

  • Personal Information You Submit:
    Fresenius Kabi USA collects personal information that you enter into data fields on Fresenius Kabi USA web sites. For example, you may submit your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for Fresenius Kabi USA programs, contact Fresenius Kabi USA customer service, or respond to Fresenius Kabi USA surveys. To protect your privacy, you should not provide Fresenius Kabi USA with any information that is not specifically requested or send any information that you consider sensitive or confidential, including your medical history, to us through use of a "Contact Us" e-form.
  • Passive Collection of Non-Personal Information:
    Fresenius Kabi USA web sites may collect information about your visits to Fresenius Kabi USA web sites on an anonymous basis without you actively submitting such information. Non-personal information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags, and web beacons. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to Fresenius Kabi USA web sites some of this non-personal information, such as the URL of the web site you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of Fresenius Kabi USA web sites easier by allowing Fresenius Kabi USA to provide better service, customize sites based on consumer preference, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve Fresenius Kabi USA web sites. Certain features of Fresenius Kabi USA web sites may not work without use of passive information collection technologies.

In what circumstances might Fresenius Kabi USA collect and use personal information?
Fresenius Kabi USA will use the personal information you provide through Fresenius Kabi USA web sites to respond to your questions and to provide you with efficient customer service. After you have entered personal information into a form or data field on an Fresenius Kabi USA web site, Fresenius Kabi USA may use certain identifying technologies, referred to as "cookies," to allow that web site to "remember" your personal preferences, such as sections of that web site that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user ID. We may also use this personal information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding Fresenius Kabi USA products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions.

Does Fresenius Kabi USA consolidate personal information?
Fresenius Kabi USA may consolidate the personal information of customers who use Fresenius Kabi USA web sites. We use this information to help us better design Fresenius Kabi USA web sites and Fresenius Kabi USA products, to communicate information to you, to enhance our marketing and research activities, and to facilitate other business functions.

What choices do I have about how Fresenius Kabi USA collects and uses personal information about me?
You can access and use much of this web site without telling us who you are or revealing any personal information. Some areas of the site, however, do allow you to contact us to ask questions or provide comments. You may always limit the amount and type of personal information that Fresenius Kabi USA receives about you by choosing not to enter any personal information into forms or data fields on Fresenius Kabi USA web sites; however, some of our online services can only be provided to you if you provide us with appropriate personal information. Other parts of Fresenius Kabi USA web sites may ask whether you wish to opt out or opt into our contact lists for offers, promotions and additional services that may be of interest to you.

You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want Fresenius Kabi USA web sites to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to "remember" your personal information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, Fresenius Kabi USA web sites that use tracking technologies to collect non-personal information do not generally provide you with the ability to opt out of the tracking technologies. Some Internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect non-personal information, erase cookies from your computer's hard drive, block all cookies, or even receive a warning before a cookie is placed on your system. Refer to your browser instructions or help button to learn more about tracking technologies and cookies.

Who will have access to personal information about me?
Personal information can be accessed by a restricted number of Fresenius Kabi USA employees, by certain companies with which Fresenius Kabi USA may conduct joint programs, and by individuals and entities with whom Fresenius Kabi USA contracts to carry out business activities for Fresenius Kabi USA. We train our employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage customer data appropriately and securely. Also, it is Fresenius Kabi USA's practice to notify you if you are registering for a program which is conducted in conjunction with another company that may require access to your personal information. In addition, Fresenius Kabi USA's practice is to require its contractors to keep your personal information confidential and to use personal information only to perform functions for Fresenius Kabi USA.

Does Fresenius Kabi USA share personal information with third parties?
As a general rule, Fresenius Kabi USA does not share your personal information with third parties, unless it is useful to conduct a joint program or to carry out a program or activity through a contractor. Where required by law, Fresenius Kabi USA will not disclose your personal information to third parties for those third parties' marketing purposes, unless you have been provided with an opportunity to opt out of this disclosure. However, if Fresenius Kabi USA sells one of its product lines or divisions, your personal information may be transferred to the buyer so that the buyer can continue to provide you with information and services. If Fresenius Kabi USA provides your personal information to individuals and entities which assist us with our business activities, it is Fresenius Kabi USA's practice to require those individuals and entities to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for Fresenius Kabi USA. Fresenius Kabi USA reserves the right to disclose your personal information to respond to authorized information requests from government authorities, to address national security situations, or when otherwise required by law.

If you contact Fresenius Kabi USA regarding your experience in using one of Fresenius Kabi USA's products, Fresenius Kabi USA may use the information you provide in submitting reports to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, other regulatory authorities, and as otherwise required of us by law. Fresenius Kabi USA also may use the information to contact the prescribing physician to follow up regarding an unexpected event involving use of our product. By submitting such information, you agree that Fresenius Kabi USA may not be permitted to comply with your request to amend or remove personal identifiable information that was provided to Fresenius Kabi USA by a health care professional or a consumer regarding an adverse drug event. Additionally, Fresenius Kabi USA may be required by court orders or other laws to divulge information about you to law enforcement authorities or the courts. Fresenius Kabi USA will cooperate in responding to such requests, in accordance with the law, and will take appropriate measures to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of the health-related personal information that they may receive.

How does Fresenius Kabi USA secure personal information?
It is Fresenius Kabi USA's practice to secure each web page that collects personal information; however, the confidentiality of personal information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting personal information over the Internet, especially personal information related to your health. Fresenius Kabi USA cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your personal information; therefore, when submitting personal information to Fresenius Kabi USA web sites, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks. In addition, Fresenius Kabi USA web sites covered by this Privacy Policy will display a warning whenever you link to a web site that is not controlled by Fresenius Kabi USA; you should check the privacy policies of such third-party web sites before submitting personal information.
