TriVascular Website Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) describes how we at TriVascular Technologies, Inc., together with its subsidiaries (collectively, “TriVascular”) handle information collected from users of the TriVascular.com website (the “Site”). We want to be sure you understand our practices and how we strive to protect personal information collected by the Site. By using the Site, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy, so please do not use the Site if you do not agree with these terms.

We may update this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes to the Policy will become effective upon the date of our posting of the revised Policy on the Site. If you use the Site following the effective date of the revised Policy, you will be deemed to have accepted the Policy’s updated terms.

  1. What Types of Information Does the TriVascular Collect Through the Site?

    The information we collect through the Site includes “Personally Identifiable Information” (or “PII”), which is information that identifies you as an individual, such as your first and last name, postal address, email address, and telephone number, as well as any company affiliation. We collect this information when you voluntarily provide it in order to contact us through the Site. We also collect some of this information about you if you use our Size My Patient Tool (only available in the U.S.) on the Site. In addition, because the Size My Patient Tool is designed for a physician to upload images specific to a patient, which comprise PII (including personal health information), if you use the Size My Patient Tool, we will be collecting PII from you regarding your patient, and that information will be used and disclosed as described in this Privacy Policy. In order to use the Size My Patient Tool, you must agree to the specific terms of use applicable to it, including with respect to your responsibility in disclosing patient-specific information to TriVascular.

    The Site also automatically collects information about you that is not PII but relates to your use of the Site. Non-PII is aggregated information, demographic information and any other information that does not reveal your specific identity. Non-PII is “passively” collected from you through browser navigational tools, such as cookies and pixel tags, that identify you only by your IP address -- the Internet Protocol address of the computer that you use to access the Site. These types of technologies enable the Site to compile statistics about our daily number of Site visitors or specific page requests.

    You can set your browser to accept all cookies, to reject all cookies, or to notify you whenever a cookie is offered so that you can decide each time whether to accept it. However, refusing a cookie may in some cases preclude you from using, or negatively affect the display or function of, the Site or certain areas or features of the Site. To learn more about cookies, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org.

    By using the Site, you are deemed to unambiguously agree to its use of any cookies that you do not disable.
     

  2. How Does TriVascular Use the Information It Collects?
    1. PII. We may use the PII that we collect for any or all of the following purposes:
      1. Respond to Your Requests. We may use PII about you to respond to your requests, such as to answer your questions sent through the “Contact Us” form on the Site.
      2. Internal Business Purposes. We use PII about you for our internal business purposes, including in particular to help us determine usage of the Site, to track the use of our Size My Patient Tool, and to help us improve the Site and our products and services generally. We also use PII for related internal purposes, such as data analysis, audits, enhancing the Site, and identifying usage trends.
    2. Other Information. 
      We use non-PII to help us improve the Site, such as by analyzing Site visitor trends, including usage of certain pages or functions on the Site. We may also use non-PII for other purposes, but if any such use involved combining the non-PII with any data so that it became identifiable to you or another person, we would then treat it as PII in accordance with this Policy.
       
  3. With Whom Does TriVascular Share PII Collected Through the Site?
     

    1. ​Operational Partners and Third Party Service Providers. We may share PII with unaffiliated third parties who provide us with services, such as the designer of the Site and others who assist us with technology, data analysis, or similar services. We do not share PII with unaffiliated third parties for their own marketing purposes.
    2. Acquirers or Assignees. In the event of any reorganization, merger, sale, joint venture, assignment, transfer or other disposition of all or any portion of TriVascular or its assets, we may transfer any and all information that we collect from Site users to the acquiring party or assignee.
    3. Entities Entitled Under Law. We may disclose PII we collect about you to others as we believe to be appropriate in the following circumstances: (i) when required by applicable law, including laws outside your country of residence; (ii) to comply with legal process (iii) to respond to requests from public and government authorities; (iv) to enforce the terms and conditions for use of the Site, including this Privacy Policy; (v) to protect and defend our rights and property; (vi) to protect the interests and safety of TriVascular or others; and (vii) to permit us to pursue available remedies or limit the damages that we may sustain. We have no obligation to notify you of such disclosures, except as required by applicable law.
       
  4. How Can You Manage PII We Maintain?
     

    1. Updating or Correcting PII. If you would like to review, correct, update or remove PII about you that you previously provided to us through the “Contact Us” page on the Site. For your protection, we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will endeavor to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable. Please note that we are not responsible for correcting, updating or deleting any information in the databases of third parties.
       
  5. How Does TriVascular Protect and Maintain PII Collected Through the Site?
     

    1. Security. We use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to help protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. However, no data transmission over the Internet or data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100 percent secure. Please do not send us information you consider confidential via e-mail.
    2. Data Integrity and Retention. We will retain PII about you for the period necessary to fulfill the purposes outlined in this Policy or TriVascular’s data retention policies unless a longer retention period is required by law.
    3. Other Websites. The Site may contain links to websites operated by parties not affiliated with TriVascular. These linked sites are not under TriVascular’s control and we are not responsible for the privacy practices or the contents of any such unaffiliated parties or their websites. If you provide any PII through any such third-party website, your transaction will occur on such third party’s website (not this Site) and the PII you provide will be collected by, and controlled by the privacy policy of, that third party. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with the privacy policies and practices of any such third parties, which are not governed by this Privacy Policy.

    We do not allow others to collect the PII of visitors to our Site by tracking the usage of either our Site or other websites.

    This Site is not directed to children under the age of thirteen (13), and we do not knowingly collect PII from any children under age 13. If you are under age 13, please do not submit any PII to us.
     

  8. International Transfers of Information.

    By using the Site, you are deemed to understand and unambiguously consent to the collection and processing of your PII in the United States, with the awareness that the laws of the United States may not provide as much protection for PII as the laws of certain other countries or territories.
