Privacy Statement

Effective Date: April 22, 2019

Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Eli Lilly and Company (“We” or “Us”) each respect the privacy of visitors to its websites, and, as a result, We have developed this website privacy statement. This website privacy statement applies only to the operation of websites that directly link to this privacy statement within the content and/or navigation (e.g., footer) of the site. 

Please read this privacy statement carefully. By using this site, you agree to the terms of this privacy statement. This privacy statement may change from time to time, so please check back often. Should you have any questions about this privacy statement or our data collection and use practices, please see our contact information below.

Collection and Use of Information

Through this website We will collect information you provide such as your name, address, telephone number, email address and other similar information ("Personal Information"). We will use Personal Information to respond to requests you may make of Us, and from time to time, We may refer to Personal Information to better understand your needs and how We can improve our websites, products and services. We may also use Personal Information to contact you and/or provide you with general health information (like information on certain health conditions) as well as information about our products and services. We may also enhance or merge Personal Information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes.

Any other information ("Other Information" that is, information that does not directly identify you) transferred by you in connection with your visit to this site which may include your IP Address and other information gathered through our weblogs and cookies (see below) may be included in databases owned and maintained by Us or Our agents. Boehringer Ingelheim Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Lilly retain all rights to these databases and the information contained in them.

This website may use a technology called a "cookie," which is a piece of information that our webserver sends to your computer (actually to your browser file) when you access a website. Then when you come back our site will detect whether you have one of our cookies on your computer. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the site and help Us analyze site usage more accurately. For instance, our site may set a cookie on your browser that keeps you from needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the site.

This website may use other technology (e.g., web beacons, pixel tags, single‐pixel‐gifs, etc.) to track your usage across various web pages on our website and create a web log of such usage. Web log information includes non‐personal information, such as the date and time you visited our site, the pages you visited, the website you came from, the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using and the domain name and address of your internet service provider. If you provide your email address for Us to communicate with you, We may also use similar technology in emails we send to you in order to determine if emails were opened and replied to or forwarded.

This website uses analytics service providers to track visitor data for the purpose of website optimization and to determine which audiences are visiting the site. These service providers use cookies and other technology described above to provide their services. They do not collect Personal Information.

One of the analytics companies we use is Google Analytics. You can learn how Google Analytics collects and processes data by visiting https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.  

This website collects Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet. Generally, an IP Address changes each time you connect to the Internet (it is a "dynamic" address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, it is possible that your IP Address that We collect, or even perhaps a cookie We use, may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because with some broadband connections your IP Address doesn't change (it is "static") and could be associated with your personal computer. We use your IP Address to report aggregate information on use and to help improve the website.

Sharing of Information

We may share Personal Information and the Other Information collected on this site with agents, contractors or our partners in connection with services that these individuals or entities perform for or with Us. These agents, contractors or partners are restricted from using this data in any way other than to provide services for Us (for example, providing you with requested materials). 

We reserve the right to share the Personal Information and the Other Information collected on this site to respond to duly authorized information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law. In exceptionally rare circumstances where national, state or company security is at issue, We reserve the right to share our entire database of visitors and customers with appropriate governmental authorities.

We may also provide Personal Information and the Other Information collected on this site to a third party in connection with the sale, assignment or other transfer of the business of this website to which the information relates. We will require any such buyer to agree to treat the information collected on this site in accordance with this privacy statement.

We also do not knowingly permit third parties to collect Personal Information about your online activities over time and across different websites when using our website.
