First and foremost, the Stealth website only collects your personal information if you choose to give it to us. While we retain the right to share your personal information with our corporate affiliates and with outside companies or agents working on our behalf to help fulfill our business obligations, we do not share any of your personal information with third-parties for their own use unless you explicitly give us permission to do so.
Information Collected – Information You Give Us
On the Stealth website, we collect only your personal information (such as your name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) when you choose to submit it to us, and we use it only for those purposes which you have approved. For example, you may choose to register to receive additional product information or information about a disease state that interests you, in which case your personal information will be used only for that purpose. In some cases, we remove personal identifiers from data and maintain it in aggregate form. We may combine this data with other information to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information helpful to us in improving our products and services.
Automatically Collected Information
We automatically collect certain types of information whenever you interact with us on the Stealth website and in some e-mails we may send each other. This can include your preferences (like, language and the region you are in). We may also collect information about your visits to the Stealth website, such as, the length of visits to certain pages and page interaction information. Automatic technologies we use may include web server logs and IP addresses, cookies and web beacons.
Web Server Logs and IP Addresses: An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet that allows computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. Stealth may collect IP addresses to conduct system administration and report aggregate information to affiliates, business partners, service providers and/or vendors to conduct website and Application analysis and performance reviews.
Web Beacons: On certain web pages or e-mails, Stealth may utilize a common Internet technology called a “web beacon” (also known as an “action tag” or “clear GIF technology”). Web beacons help analyze the effectiveness of websites by measuring, for example, the number of visitors to a site or how many visitors clicked on key elements of a site.
Web beacons, cookies and other tracking technologies do not automatically obtain personal information about you. Only if you voluntarily submit personal information, such as by registering or sending e-mails, can these automatic tracking technologies be used to provide further information about your use of the websites to improve their usefulness to you.
You have certain options regarding your use of the Stealth website. Stealth may require you to provide certain personal information in order for you to receive additional product information or information about a disease state. You could decide not to submit any personal information at all by not entering it into any forms or data fields and not using any available personalized services. If you opt-in for particular services or communications, such as an e-newsletter, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by following the instructions included in each communication. If you decide to unsubscribe from a service or communication, we will work to remove your information promptly, although we may require additional information before we can process your request.
