Company Website Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting one of the websites (the “Websites”) owned by Sucampo Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and any of its subsidiaries or affiliates (collectively, “Sucampo”). When we refer to ourselves as “we” or “Sucampo,” we mean our entire company, including any company that we control (for example, a subsidiary that we own). This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) applies to the personal information collected on Sucampo websites. The term “personal information” as used throughout this Privacy Policy, applies to any information or set of information that identifies or that is used by or on behalf of Sucampo to identify an individual.

We have provided this Privacy Policy to describe how we collect, use, share and protect the personal information you provide to us at this Website. This Privacy Policy only applies to personal information we collect at our Websites, via the electronic communications technologies that we use. It does not apply to personal information collected through other means, including personal information you provide in e-mail messages you send to us or personal information we may collect from you offline except in cases where such personal information is consolidated with personal information collected by Sucampo online. This Privacy Policy is intended for all visitors of the Sucampo Websites including consumers, healthcare professionals and Sucampo business partners. We may share information among companies that we own or control, and we may share information with our co-promotion partners, and companies working with Sucampo but all information we share will always be protected under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

At some of our Websites, we may use personal information in a manner not described in this Privacy Policy. In those instances, the different uses of personal information will be disclosed to you at the web page where your personal information is collected, prior to such collection.

Sucampo offers online resources designed to provide health, medical, and product-related information and services, as well as corporate and financial news and employment information. In addition, some of our Websites enable qualified professionals to place orders for our pharmaceutical products, to apply for grants, or to contribute to clinical studies.

From time to time, our internal processes may change, or we may offer new or altered features at our Websites. If appropriate, we will revise this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to return to this area to read the most recent version of our Privacy Policy. If we alter our practices in a manner that will affect the treatment of the personal information you have already provided, we will attempt to provide visitors who have registered on our Websites with notice of our new Privacy Policy via e-mail.

1.         Personal Information Collected

Information You Provide

In general, you may browse the Sucampo Websites without providing any personal information. At our Websites, we may provide you with opportunities to sign up to receive information or services from us. As part of this process, we ask you to provide us with personal information about yourself (such as name, postal address, telephone number, e-mail address, user ID and password). For example, you may choose to register to receive e-mail updates about a Website, information about a particular health condition, or materials relating to products or services offered by Sucampo and its product-related co-promotion partners, and you may provide us with your e-mail address to receive such communications. You may always choose not to provide us with your personal information, and we will disclose to you at the time we collect your personal information whether it is required for you to receive the information or services you have requested.

To better understand and address your interests, and to keep the personal information we have about you accurate, we may correct or add to the personal information you provide to us at our Websites with personal information we receive from you offline or from other sources.

Automatically Collected Information — Cookies and Other Website Information

Like most other commercial websites, we use standard “cookie” and “web beacon” technology and web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used. Web beacons are transparent pixel images that are used in collecting information about Website visitor activities and e-mail response and tracking. For example, if we send you an e-mail message, we (or third parties providing services on our behalf) may collect information through web beacons to determine whether you have opened the e-mail message or clicked on links located within the e-mail message.

Cookies are pieces of data that a website transfers to a visitor’s hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies placed on our Websites may be set directly by our servers or by third parties providing technical services to us. To prevent cookies from tracking you as you navigate our Websites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Please note that some portions of our Websites may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

Information gathered through cookies and by our web server logs may include your IP address, your Internet browser, your operating system, the domain name of your internet service provider, the date and time of your visits, the pages viewed, the time spent at our Website, and the websites visited just before and just after our Website. This information may be associated with your personal information. Sucampo may use Web server and browser information to individually customize its offerings and presentations if you submit your personal information. Online social media resources are interactive tools that typically enable you to collaborate and share information with others. Some examples of social media resources include social networks, discussion boards, bulletin boards, blogs, wikis, and referral functions to share web site content and tools with a friend or colleague. Sucampo may collect personal information from you to enable you to use online social media resources we may offer from time to time. Sucampo may also enable you to use these social media resources to post or share personal information with others. You should consider carefully what information about yourself you choose to share with others when you use social media resources. Sucampo provides additional notice and choices about how personal information is collected, used and disclosed on our Web sites and other online resources that offer social media. Some Sucampo Web sites and online resources are designed specifically for use on mobile computing devices. Some mobile versions of Sucampo Web sites may require that you log in with your user account for that Web site. Information about your use of the mobile version of the Web site will be associated with your user account. Some of our Web sites and online resources enable you to download an application, widget or other tool that you can use on your mobile or other computing device. Some of these tools may store information on your mobile or other device. These tools may transmit personal information to Sucampo to enable you to access your user account and to enable Sucampo to track use of these tools. Some of these tools may enable you to e-mail reports and other information from the tool. Sucampo may use personal or non-identifiable information transmitted to Sucampo to enhance these tools, to develop new tools, for quality improvement and as otherwise described in this Policy or in other notices Sucampo provides.

2.         Your Choices

You have several choices regarding your use of our Websites. You could decide not to submit any personal information at all. Although certain Websites may ask for permission to use your personal information for certain purposes, you can agree or decline to provide your personal information.

As described above, if you wish to prevent cookies from tracking you as you navigate our Websites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Please note, however, that some portions of our Websites may not work properly if you refuse cookies.    

3.         Use of Personal Information

Sucampo and its service providers will use your personal information to provide information and services to you, including information and services you have requested, or as otherwise disclosed to you in this Privacy Policy or on the web page where you submit your personal information to us.
