Thank you for visiting Advista BioTech website and Mobile. We respect your privacy and want you to understand the ways in which we collect and use information provided online.
How We Collect Personal and Non-Personal Information through the Online Services
We collect two kinds of information through the Online Services: non-personal information and personal information.
The non-personal information we collect includes: the visitor’s browser type, device type, and operating system; area(s) of the Online Services visited; date and time of access; host or Internet service provider (ISP) information; and identity of the referring site (any site from which the visitor accessed the Online Services).
We also collect personal information that can identify a visitor, user or insured, including but not limited to name, address or other contact information, customer service requests, information provided for roadside assistance services, or other information that you choose to provide to us, but only when you voluntarily provide it. If you apply for a job or register with our Career Center, we may collect personal information about your work and educational history. In addition, certain of the Online Services may collect precise information about the location of your mobile device but only with your express consent. Once you have consented to the collection of the precise location of your mobile device, you may adjust this consent by managing your location services preferences through the settings of your mobile device.
How We Use Your Information
We may use the information we collect through the Online Services for a number of purposes including:
- to provide you with, renew or modify products and services;
- to provide you with the information and documents you request and for other customer service purposes;
- to provide you with information about the Online Services or required notices;
- to deliver marketing communications or promotional materials that may be of interest to you and to assist us in determining relevant advertising;
- to improve the services we provide and the usefulness of the Online Services;
- to customize your experience when using the Online Services;
- to comply with applicable laws;
- to perform research; and
- to prevent and detect fraud, infringement and other potential misuse.
We also may anonymize, combine or aggregate any of the information we collect through the Online Services or elsewhere for any of these purposes or for analyzing usage statistics and trends.
If you provide us with personal information, we will not sell, license, transmit or disclose this information outside of the Advista BioTech Group unless: (1) you expressly authorize us to do so; (2) it is necessary to allow our contractors or agents to provide services for us; (3) it is necessary to provide our products or services to you; (4) it is disclosed to entities that perform marketing services on our behalf or to other entities with whom we have joint marketing agreements; (5) in connection with a merger, consolidation, acquisition, divestiture or other corporate restructuring of all or part of our business; or (6) it is otherwise required or permitted by law.

Opting-out of Third Party Ad Networks
You may opt out of many third-party ad networks. For example, you may go to the Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”) Consumer Choice Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by DAA companies. You may also go to the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) Consumer Opt-Out Page for information about opting out of interest-based advertising and their choices regarding having information used by NAI members.
Opting out from one or more companies listed on the DAA Consumer Choice Page or the NAI Consumer Opt-Out Page will opt you out from those companies’ delivery of interest-based content or ads to you, but it does not mean you will no longer receive any advertising on other websites. You may continue to receive advertisements, for example, based on the particular website that you are viewing (i.e., contextually based ads). Also, if your browsers are configured to reject cookies when you opt out on the DAA or NAI websites, your opt out may not be effective. Additional information is available on the DAA’s website at www.aboutads.info or the NAI’s website at www.networkadvertising.org.
