Generally, you can browse our website, www.microdermics.com, (the “Website”) anonymously without giving us personal information about yourself.

Collection and Use of Personal Information

If you choose to sign-up to receive communications, we may collect contact information such as your name and email address. We may also collect your name, email, institution or company name, and job function in order to provide you with research papers, brochures, or other publications you may request.

Disclosure of Personal Information

We will not disclose, trade, rent, sell, or otherwise transfer personal information, without consent, except as otherwise set out in this Privacy Policy.

Service Providers: We may transfer (or otherwise make available) personal information to third-parties who provide services (“Service Providers”) on our behalf.  For example, we may use Service Providers to host our Website, operate certain of its features, and store information on our behalf.  Personal information may be maintained and processed by third-party Service Providers in the US, Canada or other jurisdictions  and may be disclosed to or accessed by the courts, law enforcement, and governmental authorities in accordance with the laws of those jurisdictions. Our Service Providers are given as much information as they need to perform their designated functions and are not authorized to use or disclose personal information for their own marketing or other purposes. Microdermics takes commercially reasonable contractual or other measures to protect your personal information when it is processed or handled by Service Providers.

Sale of Business: We may transfer personal information as an asset in connection with a prospective or completed merger or sale (including transfers made as part of insolvency or bankruptcy proceeding) involving all or part of Microdermics or as part of a corporate reorganization, financing, or other change in corporate control. It is Microdermics’ practice to seek appropriate protection for your personal information in such transactions.

Legal: We and our Canadian, US or other Service Providers may provide personal information in response to a search warrant or other legally valid inquiry or order (which may include lawful access by Canadian, US, or other foreign governmental authorities, courts, or law enforcement agencies), or to other organizations in the case of investigating a breach of an agreement or contravention of law, or detecting, suppressing, or preventing fraud, or as otherwise required or permitted by applicable Canadian, US, or other law.  We may also disclose personal information where necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims and to investigate or prevent actual or suspected loss or harm to persons or property. Where Microdermics is legally compelled to disclose your personal information, it will do so only to the limit necessary under applicable laws.
