Please read this privacy statement carefully.

This Privacy Statement tells you how we protect and use information that we gather through this CONMED web site. This web site and this Privacy Statement are intended for a U.S. audience.

We may change this Privacy Statement at any time and for any reason. Significant changes to the Privacy Statement are discussed below in the Section called “Recent revisions to the Privacy Statement.” We encourage you to review this Privacy Statement each time you visit the web site.

Introduction

We collect and use your non-personal information (information that is not identifiable to you personally) but do not collect any personal information.

What is non-personal information?

Non-personal information is information we collect through this web site that does not identify you as an individual person. It may include information such as the following:

  • the type of web browser software you use (for example, Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer)
  • the name of the domain from which you access the Internet
  • the Internet address of the web site from which you linked directly to our web site
  • the date and time you access our web site
  • which pages you have visited on our web site
  • the search terms you use
  • the links on which you click
  • personal information that has been made non-personal or anonymous (i.e., information that no longer reflects or references an individually identifiable user)

If you visit our web site to read or download information, such as information about a health condition or about one of our products, we may collect certain non-personal information about you from your computer. This information is collected from your computer’s web browser: If you only read or download information on our web site, we do not collect or learn your name, e-mail address, home address, or other personal information about you. We may place a text file called a cookie in the browser files of your computer when you visit. The cookie may be stored on your computer’s hard drive. The information that we collect using cookies is non-personal information. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of our web site may not work properly for you if you do so. We will not allow third parties other than those companies that we hire to perform services or functions on our behalf to place cookies on our web site.

What does CONMED do with non-personal information?

Because non-personal information cannot identify you or be tied to you in any way, there are no restrictions on the ways that we can use or share non-personal information. We are always looking for ways to better serve you and improve this web site. We will use non-personal information from you to help us make this web site more useful to visitors. We also will use non-personal information for other business purposes. For example, we may use non-personal information or aggregate non-personal information to:

  • create reports for internal use to develop programs, products, services or content
  • customize the information or services that are of interest to you
  • share it with or sell it to third parties
  • provide aggregated information on how visitors use our site, such as “traffic statistics” and “response rates,” to third parties

What happens if the privacy statement changes?

If we decide to make a significant change to our Privacy Statement, we will post a notice on the homepage of our web site for a period of time after the change is made. Significant changes are also described below.

Recent revisions to the Privacy Statement: None.

What about privacy on other web sites?

This web site may contain links to other web sites. Some of those web sites may be operated by CONMED or its affiliates, and some may be operated by third parties. We provide the links for your convenience, but we do not review, control, or monitor the privacy practices of web sites operated by others. This Privacy Statement does not apply to any other web site, even the other CONMED web sites. We are not responsible for the performance of web sites operated by third parties or for your business dealings with them. Therefore, whenever you leave this web site we recommend that you review each web site’s privacy practices and make your own conclusions regarding the adequacy of these practices.

Does CONMED ever communicate directly with visitors to this web site?

We do not communicate directly with visitors to this website.

Are there special rules about children’s privacy?

We care about protecting the online privacy of children. We will not collect any personal information (such as a child’s name or e-mail address) from children under the age of 13. If you think that we have collected personal information from a child under the age of 13, please contact us.

What about web site security?

Security is very important to us. We also understand that security is important to you. We take reasonable steps to protect your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail.
