Improving our websites, products, and services
We may use information collected about you to improve our web site navigation, to make personalized features and other services available to you, to compile and analyze aggregate statistics and trends, and to otherwise help administer and improve the Site. Where you provide registration information along with consent, cookies can also be used to identify you when you visit or log onto the Site or portions of the Site.
We may combine your personal information with information we collect from third parties and use it to maintain and improve the accuracy of the records we hold about you. We also use the combined information about you to form a view on what products or services we think you, or others similar to you, may want or need or provide advertising closer to your interest.
You will receive marketing communications from us if you have requested information or purchased products from us, provided us with your details when you contacted our customer service teams, entered a competition, registered for a promotion, or accessed information from our website and, in each case, you have not opted out of receiving marketing communications. We only want to provide you with marketing communications if you want to hear from us. If you wish to stop receiving marketing communications from us, you can simply:
- Click on the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of every marketing e-mail we send you, and then select the type of marketing communications you would like to receive (or none at all)
- Contact us using the contact details provided under the Contact Us page
Once you do this, we will update your profile to ensure that you don’t receive any further marketing messages. Please note that stopping marketing messages will not stop any service communications (such as order updates) or requests for feedback.
We may use your personal information for shipping and related services for purchases made through OriGene.
We use the data, including your communication to review, resolve, and respond to any product complains or shipping issues you have.
Security and investigation
How we may disclose your information:
We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties. We may provide your information to any third parties if they have already specifically obtained your consent.
We may use third parties to help improve our Products and Services, for example, website maintenance, marketing and development, fraud detection, and shipping. They will then have access to your information but only as reasonably necessary to perform their tasks, and are obligated not to disclose it or use it for any other purposes.
Change of Control or Sale
We may share your personal information with law enforcement, government agencies or other third parties pursuant to a subpoena, court order, or other legal requirement applicable to OriGene. We will, in our sole discretion, try to narrow the disclosure to better protect your information.
How information is stored and protected
We take reasonable steps online and offline to safeguard the information you provide to us. All web pages transmitting personal or financial information are encrypted from your PC to our servers using the standard known as SSL (Secure Sockets Layer). Beyond the SSL barrier, your data is protected once it reaches our networks using secure multi-tiered firewalls.
Because no system is 100% secure despite taking commercially reasonable steps, we can’t promise, and you should not expect, that information you provided can remain private under all circumstances. It is your responsibility to safeguard any passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features associated with your use of the Site.
Changing or correcting data:
You can always edit some of your personal data through your account. You can also request us to change, update, or fix your data, especially if the data is inaccurate.
You can choose to receive or decline to receive certain communication from us by: (1) declining the service offered when registering or at other information collection points on the Site, or (2) informing us that you no longer wish to receive such communications afterwards. We will comply with such requests unless such communications are necessary for the administration of your account, required by law, or necessary to protect our rights and conduct business.
The exact information you provide:
You may at any time request access to a summary of the information you provided at web registration, and request corrections or updates to that information. We will make reasonable efforts to respond to such requests. However, our response to such requests may be limited to information under our direct control.
