Introduction and Summary

This website (the “Website”) is operated by Avalon Laboratories Inc. as a service to its clients and to the general public. By using the Website, you agree to this Privacy Statement. If you do not agree with this Privacy Statement, you must cease to use the Website immediately.

Avalon Laboratories Inc. reserves the right to change, modify, or update this Privacy Statement at any time and your continued use of the Website signifies your acceptance of the revised Privacy Statement.

Information We Collect and How It is Used

“Personal information” is information that is personally identifiable to an individual. Your use of the website does not automatically result in the collection of personal information, other than non-identifiable information. “Non-identifiable information” is information that cannot be associated with or traced back to a specific individual. For example, non-identifiable information may include information about your visit to our site, your computer’s Internet Protocol address, operating system, web browser software or the domain from which you accessed the Internet.

We collect non-identifiable information to diagnose problems with the Website, to determine how visitors use the Website and to administer and improve the Website.

This Website uses “cookies”, which are small computer files transferred by our server to your computer’s hard drive that contain a unique, randomly generated number. Cookies assist us in collecting information related to your use of the Website, such as number of visits, average time spent, page views and other statistical information. You may set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to prevent cookies from being transferred. Refusing cookies will not affect your use of the Website.

This site may contain links that take you to other websites that may collect personal information. This Privacy Statement does not extend to the data collection practices of third parties and Avalon Laboratories Inc. does not assume any responsibility for the privacy practices, policies or actions of third parties. You should read the individual privacy policies of such websites, and make an informed decision whether or not to use those websites based upon their privacy practices and your discretion.

Aggregate non-identifiable information is used to perform statistical analyses of the collective characteristics and behaviour of our visitors, to measure user demographics and interests regarding specific areas of the Website and analyze how and where best to use resources.

Aggregate non-identifiable information may be used to describe our services to third parties. Personal information will not be disclosed in any of these circumstances; only non-identifiable information will be disclosed.

You may choose to communicate with Avalon Laboratories Inc., via e-mail or otherwise. Doing so would disclose your personal information and by doing so, you provide your consent to our use of such personal information for the purposes of the communication and for our follow-up.

We retain non-identifiable information for a period of 2 months. Personal information is only retained for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and for which consent has been obtained, or as may be required by law or for audit purposes.
