Attention California consumers! Please read carefully an updated section pertaining to your rights under the California Consumer Privacy Act (see “Rights of California residents under the CCPA” below).

USERS of ConnecticutBiotech.com (“USER”) can browse ConnecticutBiotech.com (“SITE”) without revealing USER’S personal information, but in order to take advantage of most of the SITE’S services, USER must give personal information. By providing personal information, USER expressly consents to the collection, use, disclosure and retention of USER’S personal information as described in this privacy policy (“PRIVACY POLICY”). This PRIVACY POLICY covers SITE’s treatment of personal or personally identifiable information, herein referred to as “PERSONAL INFORMATION”, that may be collected when USER is on the SITE and when USER uses SITE services. This PRIVACY POLICY does not apply to the practices of companies or individuals that SITE does not own or exercise supervisory control over, or to third party advertisers on the SITE.

We do update this PRIVACY POLICY from time to time so please review this PRIVACY POLICY regularly. If we materially alter our PRIVACY POLICY, we will notify you of such changes by posting a notice on our Site and/or contacting you at the e-mail address provided to us. Your continued use of the SITE will be deemed your agreement that your information may be used in accordance with the new policy. If you do not agree with the changes, then you should stop using the SITE, and you should notify us that you do not want your information used in accordance with the changes.

This PRIVACY POLICY discloses the privacy practices for https://www.CTbiotech.com/. It applies solely to information collected by this website. This Privacy Policy will notify USER of the following:

  •         What PERSONAL INFORMATION is collected from USER through the SITE, how it is used, and with whom it may be shared;
  •         What choices are available to USER regarding the use of USER data;
  •         The security procedures in place to protect against the misuse of USER information;
  •         As applicable, how USER can correct any inaccuracies in the information;
  •         Rights of California residents under the CCPA; and
  •         EU-US Privacy Shield certification statement.

Information Collection, Use, and Sharing

SITE and the product seller who fulfills USER’s order (“FULFILLER”) are the sole users of the information collected on this SITE. SITE only has access to or collects information that USER voluntarily gives SITE via email or other direct contact from USER such as requesting or purchasing products from a FULFILLER, including, but not limited to name, address, email address, telephone number, credit/debit card information, and purchase information.

SITE may also collect details of USER’s visits to SITE and the resources that USER accesses, including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data, including USER’s IP address, the date and time USER accessed or left the SITE, and which pages USER viewed. Some parts of SITE use cookies and other technologies to collect this information about your general internet usage. See section below “How We Use Cookies, Third Party Advertising, Services and Collection of Data” to learn more.

By submitting a telephone number on SITE, USER agrees that a representative of ConnecticutBiotech, LLC can contact USER at the number USER provided, potentially using automated technology (including texts/SMS messaging) or a pre-recorded message. USER consent is not an obligation to receive any products and/or services.

SITE may sell your personal information to non-financial organizations, such as companies engaged in direct marketing and the selling of consumer products and services.

SITE may also share USER’S information with affiliated entities of SITE to provide joint content and services, to market the products and services of such entities, or to solicit reviews from the USER about the SITE or transactions made on the Site.

SITE will use USER’s information to respond to USER regarding the reason USER contacted us. SITE will not share USER’s information with any third party outside of SITE’s organization, other than as necessary to fulfill USER request, e.g. to ship an order, or, in some instances, to partner with another company to provide certain content, programs and services such as those disclosed in the previous paragraph. In those cases, SITE will require SITE’s third-party agents to maintain the confidentiality of the data through a written agreement. In those situations, when USER provides personal information, it may be sent directly to the partner company, or SITE may share the information with SITE’s partner company. Unless USER asks SITE not to, SITE may contact USER in the future to tell USER about specials, new products or services, or changes to this PRIVACY POLICY. SITE is not responsible for the policies or offerings of any third party, and SITE urges USER to review third party’s policies and terms and conditions, as they may vary.

In addition, SITE will respond to a verified law enforcement, or other governmental department request or subpoena relating to a criminal investigation, alleged illegal activity, identity theft, or a matter of national security, in which case USER’s personal information may be disclosed. In such events, SITE will disclose information relevant to the investigation such as name, city, state, zip code, telephone number, email address, fraud complaints, IP address, and credit card information. SITE may also share such information with third parties, such as license verification companies, for the purposes of investigating or preventing fraudulent activities. SITE reserves the right to report to law enforcement agencies any activities that it believes, in good faith, to be unlawful. In the case of identity theft, USER may authorize a law enforcement officer to request the records from SITE or USER may request that SITE send any records directly to a law enforcement officer.

SITE may also use and disclose USER’s information to evaluate or conduct a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of our assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation, or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by SITE about SITE USERS is among the assets transferred.

SITE will not use personal information SITE collected for materially different, unrelated, or incompatible purposes without providing USER with notice and/or updating this PRIVACY POLICY.
