Changes to This Policy
Amphora is continually improving and adding new functionality and features to this website and improving and adding to our existing products, services, and programs. Because of these ongoing changes, changes in the law, and the changing nature of technology, Amphora's data practices will change from time to time. If and when our data practices change, Amphora will post the changes on our website to notify you of the changes. We encourage you to check this page on a regular basis. This policy was last updated on December 4th, 2003.
Personal Data Collected Through amphora-research.com
Other than cookies, as described below, the only personal data Amphora currently collects through this website is the information you voluntarily give us when you use our site.
For example, you may use this site to contact Amphora with questions and comments. When you fill out a form on our website, you may provide your name and other contact information, including your company's name, your email address, and your mailing address or the mailing address of your company or other personal information. If you do not wish to fill out all of the information on the form you are not required to do so. Most of our registration forms require only your e-mail address.
Use of Personal Data
Amphora uses the personal data information you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. Amphora and our affiliates also use this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services. Amphora and our affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future communications.
Similarly, we may provide "subscription" email services, either directly or through affiliates, which enable you to receive current news about Amphora products or related medical conditions and procedures. For all such services, we will provide an opportunity to "opt-out" of, or cancel, the subscription. Please see the "unsolicited ideas" heading under Terms and Conditions for more information about our use of the communications we receive through this website.
In addition to the information you provide when you use our website, Amphora uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our website. For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our website, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our site (for example, if they connected to our site by clicking on one of our banner ads).
Disclosure of Your Personal Data
While no method of data transmission is guaranteed against unlawful third party interception or other misuse, Amphora uses commercially reasonable efforts to ensure protection of your data including industry-standard encryption and offline security methods in our physical facilities (e.g., your data is protected onsite by our Information Assets Protection Policy).
Amphora does not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of thirteen. If you are under thirteen, please do not give us any personal data. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal data to Amphora, please contact us, and we will try to delete that information from our databases.
Amphora's UK arm, Amphora Research Systems Ltd., is registered with the UK Information Commissioner to cover our use of personal data on this web site and our other business operations.
