Privacy Policy

We at Presbia PLC (“Presbia,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) have created this privacy policy (this “Privacy Policy”) because we know that you care about how information you provide to us is used and shared. This Privacy Policy relates to the information collection and use practices of Presbia in connection with our online services, which are made available to you through the Website. By visiting our Website, Visitors and Registered Users are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the accompanying Terms of Use.

Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in the Terms of Use.

THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT AND/OR RECEIVE

In the course of operating the Website, Presbia will collect (and/or receive) the following types of information. You authorize us to collect and/or receive such information.

1. PERSONAL INFORMATION

When you sign up to become a Registered User, you will be required to provide us with personal information about yourself, such as your name, phone number, and e-mail address. And, if you contact us via the Contact Us page, you will need to provide your name, e-mail address, phone number, and postal address. All information that we receive under this section is collectively called “Personal Information.” We do not collect any Personal Information from Visitors or Registered Users when they use the Website, unless they provide such information voluntarily.


2. OTHER INFORMATION.

In addition to the Personal Information, we may collect or receive additional information (collectively, the “Other Information”). Such Other Information may include:

a. From Your Activity. In an ongoing effort to improve the Website, we automatically collect certain information when Visitors and Registered Users access and use the Website. Such information includes, without limitation, IP addresses, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of the Website users visit, log files, and similar information and data.
b. From You. You may voluntarily provide us additional information about yourself that does not identify you personally, such as your gender, country, product and service preferences, and other information.
c. From Cookies. We collect information using “cookie” technology. Cookies are small packets of data that a website stores on your computer’s hard drive so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. We may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to help us collect Other Information and to enhance your experience using the Website. If you do not want us to place a cookie on your hard drive, you may be able to turn that feature off on your computer. Please consult your Internet browser’s documentation for information on how to do this and how to delete persistent cookies. However, if you decide not to accept cookies from us, the Website may not function properly.
We may use the following cookies when you visit and use the Website:

Session state cookies
These cookies may collect information about how users interact with the Website, for instance to determine which pages are visited often and whether pages are viewable as intended or whether error messages are sent. The cookies may also be used to anonymously verify the effectiveness of any (clickable) advertisements included on the Website. These cookies are permanently placed on your device to help to improve your browsing experience.

Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” to help us analyze how users use our site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States (and possibly elsewhere). Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity for us, and providing other services relating to Website activity and Internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google and all its subsidiaries, such as Google Analytics, abide by the Safe Harbor privacy principles and are affiliated with the Safe Harbor program of the US Department of Commerce.

Preference cookies
These allow the Website to remember information you provide actively with regard to the way the Website looks or behaves, such as the preferred language or text size you may have selected (to the extent the Website offers such options) or the region from which you are accessing the Website. These cookies are normally installed permanently on your device, so that the Website will include your preferences at your next visit. Without these cookies, the Website should still work, but you may not be able to experience all offered functionality.

Identification via a personal unique code
The Website may also place cookies when log-in is completed for the first time. This cookie contains a unique code. It will assist you in using the full functionality of the Website, such as registering for an event. Any Personal Information you provide to us via our Website is not stored in the cookie.

THE INFORMATION COLLECTED BY OR THROUGH THIRD-PARTY ADVERTISING COMPANIES

You authorize us to share Other Information about your activity on the Website with third parties for the purpose of tailoring, analyzing, managing, reporting, and optimizing advertising you see on the Website and elsewhere. These third parties may use cookies, pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs), and/or other technologies to collect such Other Information for such purposes. Pixel tags enable us, and these third-party advertisers, to recognize a browser’s cookie when a browser visits the site on which the pixel tag is located in order to learn which advertisement brings a user to a given site.

HOW WE USE AND SHARE THE INFORMATION

You authorize us to use the Personal Information and the Other Information (collectively, the “Information”) to provide and improve our Website, products, and services; to process transactions you request; to inform you about our products and services and those of our promotional partners; and to bring you customized content (such as newsletters) based on your activity on the Website.

In an ongoing effort to better understand our Visitors, Registered Users, Website, products and services and those of our promotional partners, we may analyze certain Information in anonymized and aggregate form in order to operate, maintain, manage, and improve the Website and/or such products and services.
