Privacy

The following describes Hologic Inc.'s ("Hologic") privacy practices, including its policy for information received from or about you during visits to the website. The amount and type of information received depends on how you use the website. We may collect and store information during normal website usage such as the name of your Internet service provider, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request, and the date and time of those requests. We may use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of customer visits.
 
During normal website usage, we do not collect or store information that will individually identify you (such as name, mailing address, e-mail address or phone number). However, Hologic may request such information to provide you with a service or correspondence (such as promotional material). Such information (including your name, mailing address, e-mail address, type of request, or other information) is collected, stored, and used consistent with all applicable laws and in a manner appropriate to the nature of your request and is used to fulfill it.
 
Information you provide to Hologic is used to improve the services we provide you or for the development of its business, and is not provided to any unrelated company for that company's independent use. If you decide (without request by Hologic) to send information that will identify you, for example in a message containing comments about this website or otherwise, Hologic will use such information to identify you but will not generally use it except to address or resolve the matter identified in your message.
 
Hologic reserves the right to transfer any information it has about you in the event it sells or transfers all or a portion of its business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, Hologic will use reasonable efforts to direct the purchaser or transferee to use personal information you have provided through this website in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.
 
Hologic also reserves the right to transfer personal information it collects on this site to other countries where it does business. Such information will only be shared for the purposes described above. When such information is transferred to other countries, Hologic will use reasonable efforts to protect such information as described herein unless otherwise required by applicable laws.
 
If Hologic changes its privacy policy, the revised policy will be posted on the website and will only apply to data collected after the effective date of the revised policy. Your continued use of this website following any new policy that is posted will be deemed your conclusive acceptance of the modified policy.
 
Cookies:
 
A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's hard drive, that contains information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our site. Some parts of Hologic's website use cookies to track user traffic patterns. We do this in order to determine the usefulness of information to our users and to see how effective our navigational structure is in helping users reach that information. Hologic does not correlate this information with personally identifiable data about individual users, nor does it share this information with or sell it to any third party.
 
If you prefer not to receive cookies, you may set your browser to warn you before accepting cookies and refuse the cookie when your browser alerts you to its presence. You may also refuse all cookies by turning them off in your browser.
 
In addition, Hologic uses pixels, or transparent GIF files, to help manage online advertising. These GIF files are provided by our ad management partners, DoubleClick and Atlas.

The cookie was placed by us, or by another advertiser who works with DoubleClick or Atlas. With both cookies and Spotlight technology, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.
