This statement (confidentiality policy, referred to as the "Policy") relating to personal information is intended to inform users of the Almac website and those individuals wishing to purchase Almac products, of the precautionary measures used, in order to safeguard their data when downloading, using and communicating personal information that concerns them. This site may contain hyperlinks to third party sites that are neither operated nor controlled by Almac. This "Policy" only applies to this particular site and Almac will not be held liable, in any circumstances, for the content of these third party sites. Likewise, Almac will not act as guarantor for their practices regarding protection of confidentiality. This "Policy" may be the subject of updating. We would therefore ask that you consult this from time to time so that you are aware of any changes. The last paragraph shows the date of the last update.
Transfer of data within Almac and cross-frontier data flows
Please note that the Internet is not regarded as a secure environment and that unauthorised third parties may gain access to the data transmitted via the Internet. Consequently, this data may be divulged, modified or even cause technical problems. Data sent via the Internet may also cross frontiers, even though the sender and recipient are located in the same country. Your data may, therefore, pass via a country, which offers lower standard data protection compared with what is practised in your country. Almac waives all liability concerning the security of your data whilst it is being transferred via the Internet. We would like to point out that you can use other means of communication to send your data where you feel this to be essential to protect the latter.
Data processing by Almac
Almac will collect any personal data you voluntarily provided them with. Such personal information may include personal contact details, such as a name, address and telephone number, your comments or questions, so that it is possible to identify you personally. The data may also relate to Almac products and services and to any information required for ordering the company's products and services. In some instances, Almac may collect data about you, which is not necessarily personal data. Examples of such information include the type of Internet navigator and IT operating system you are currently using, as well as the website domain name you use to link up to our websites. If these items are not linked to other information, which is regarded as personal information concerning yourself, then such information is not considered to be personal information and is not subject to the present policy relating to the handling of personal information. If Almac obtains personal information from third parties, for example, for purposes of sending out promotional items, we will endeavour to obtain assurance that consent has been granted in respect of this communication by the supplier. What is more, we would like to point out that any personal information that is voluntarily displayed in any public area of the websites - such as a discussion forum - may also be accessed by other visitors and that Almac is unable to prevent any downloading, use or communication of such information by these visitors.
