AngioDynamics, Inc. (ADI) is dedicated to keeping the information you choose to share with us through the web sites (Sites) owned and/or operated by us secure. Ensuring your understanding of how we use and maintain your information is important to ADI. To that end, we have provided below our General Policy and our Registered User Requirements and Information.
- collection and use of information provided by you.
- the privacy protection mechanisms we have implemented; and
- how you can access, update or delete any information provided by you.
I. General Policy.
ADI maintains physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your information. Though no data transmission over the Internet is 100% secure from intrusion, we have used and will continue to use reasonable efforts to ensure the protection of your information. We assess new technology for protecting information and, when appropriate, upgrade our information security systems.
We collect information about you when you visit and use the Sites and when you enter or input information.
You can visit the Sites and learn about our company, products and services, and find out how to contact us without giving us any personal information about yourself. If we request personally identifiable information, you may decline to provide such and thus opt out of receiving future communications from us.
We may use information about you to inform us on how best to update the Sites and enhance the experience for such visitors. Personally identifiable information is not extracted for this purpose. We use such information on an aggregated basis to help us operate the Sites, enhance and improve our service, improve the look of the Sites and display advertising and marketing information. We may use personally identifiable information to display content we think will be of interest to you, or to customize what you see when you visit the Sites.
The information we may collect and store generally consists of information gathered from your registration, data input, forms and other information you provide us, electronically, by phone, in writing, in person or by any other means and information about your transactions and experience with ADI, such as account balances and purchasing activity.
Information is critical to our ability to provide high quality service to you, but the trust that you place in how we provide that service is an important asset. Keeping your information secure is a top priority for all of us at ADI. Consequently, our privacy standards are designed to ensure that we will:
- collect and use only the necessary information required for us to deliver high quality service, to administer our business and to let you know of products and services that are available from our family of companies;
- protect the information you share with us, maintaining strict standards of security and confidentiality;
- not disclose information, personal or business, to any external organization in a manner not otherwise contemplated herein unless we have previously notified you (or the business, in the case of a commercial enterprise) and obtained your consent or if we enter into a specific agreement with you;
- require any other organization that we retain or engage to provide support services for us to conform to our privacy standards.
Your privacy is important to us. However, there are legal and technical reasons why we cannot fully ensure that your personally identifiable information will be kept confidential at all times. For example, we may be compelled to disclose your information to a governmental agency or a court; or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, we may (and you hereby authorize us to do so) disclose any information about you to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries or to protect our own business and assets. In such circumstances, we will, where possible, require such third parties to maintain the confidentiality of any information so disclosed.
II. Registered User Requirements And Information
Some features on the Sites may require you to register in order to get our authorization before you can use those features. Whether you are an individual or a corporation, partnership or other form of commercial enterprise, in order for you to obtain our authorization to use those features and be considered a registered user, you must provide us with certain information about you and your business and, for security purposes, we may require some personal information about you and, if you represent a business, we may request personal information about those you designate to represent that business.
If you are a registered user, you acknowledge and also consent to our tracking your activities and use of the Sites in connection with the non-public functions of the Sites, such as confirming and filling orders, maintaining quality control and contacting you concerning your orders, transactions or subscription.
In addition to information about your business, for security purposes, we require that you provide us with information such as names, addresses, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers and other personally identifiable information for each individual who will use the Sites, in order for us to authorize you and those individuals to access the features of the Sites that are available only to registered users. This information also helps us to ensure we are able to securely identify you and each of these individuals as authorized users for the features you have successfully registered to use. Once registration is complete and we have granted you authorization, we will provide you with a user identification number and allow you to select a unique user ID and password. You will be able to change your password, as well as any personal data you have given us in order to update your information. If you are a designated representative of a business, keep in mind that an authorized representative of the business will also have the right to revoke that designation and, if so notified, we will immediately terminate your right to use the Sites.
When you submit personally identifiable information on behalf of others, you represent that you have their authorization to provide this information to us. We reserve the right to (i) ask you to provide evidence of that authorization at any time during or after the submission process and (ii) contact those individuals to confirm the authorization. If we determine that such authorization has not been properly obtained, we may immediately and without notice, discontinue your authorization to use the Sites.
Submitting information to us is not a guarantee or assurance that we will grant authorization or permit you, or anyone you designate, to use any or all of the features of the Sites. If, for any reason, you are not granted authorization we will only retain the information you submit to us in order to communicate with you regarding your application and perhaps request additional or follow-up information, for audit purposes or as may be required by law or regulation and we will not use your information for any other purposes.
The personal information you provide and any data, personal or otherwise, that you disclose may be saved on the Sites for the following purposes:
(i) we may use such information to advise you of or provide additional information regarding products or services that may be available through ADI or its affiliates;
(iii) we may disclose such information to third party physicians and health care providers who purchase our products and services for the benefit of their respective patients for the sole purpose of contacting you directly regarding the same, unless you indicate to us via the Site or otherwise in writing that you wish to opt out of such disclosures. Except as set forth above, we do not sell or market your personal information or personalized data to unaffiliated organizations. If you provide us with your email address, we may occasionally send you e-mail and any e-mail sent to us by you through the Sites will be handled and maintained in accordance with the legal and regulatory requirements we must comply with, if any, regarding communications from users and the public.
ADI may collect and use the information you provide to enable us to save you time and money by better understanding your needs so that we can provide you with more relevant information about ADI's products and services.

Definition of Spam from MAPS – Mail Abuse Prevention System
An email is spam if:
- The recipient's personal identity and context are irrelevant because the message is equally applicable to many other potential recipients; AND
- The recipient has not verifiably granted deliberate, explicit, and still-revocable permission for it to be sent; AND
- The transmission and reception of the message appears to the recipient to give a disproportionate benefit to the sender.
- AngioDynamics DOES NOT send out unsolicited email (UCE/Spam) (Please note UCE stands for unsolicited commercial email)
- AngioDynamics DOES NOT knowingly do business with any company that participates in sending UCE/SPAM
- AngioDynamics DOES NOT sell or exchange personal information from our opt-in lists.
