1. Information We Collect

For purposes of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” means information that identifies you or other individuals or that could reasonably be used to identify you or other individuals. While some of the information AngioDynamics collects is required for business engagement purposes, other information is voluntarily given by you or other individuals. Personal Information that AngioDynamics may collect, including through the Sites, may include, but is not limited to, the following:

  • Contact information such as your name, address, phone number, or email address
  • Registration information such as your username and password
  • Information about your employment such as employer name, title, address and contact information
  • Education and other background information when you inquire about employment with AngioDynamics
  • Content you may provide (for example, when you complete a contact form or submit other information on the Sites)
  • Details of products and services you have purchased from us or inquiries you have made
  • Preference information, such as communications you receive from us
  • Any other information relating to you (or other individuals) which you provide to us directly or indirectly through access and use of our Sites, by email or by phone, surveys or questionnaires, completing forms or contacting customer service

We may also collect Personal Information from third parties including your organization and representatives, public sources, our related companies, and other parties.

Some countries consider some categories of information particularly sensitive or special. We do not intentionally collect or maintain any sensitive information, including ethnicity, nationality, gender, religious beliefs, political opinions, health or genetic information.

2. Website Use and Information We Collect Online

The types of Personal Information that we may collect while you use the Sites are described in this section and include both information that you provide to us and information that we collect automatically when you use the Sites.

2.1. Personal Information You Provide When Visiting Sites

You do not have to register for a service or program to receive much of the information available through the Sites. However, some of our content is available only to registered or identified users and will require you to set up a profile or provide specific information about yourself in order to provide you the service. AngioDynamics also collects Personal Information that you provide on Sites to receive marketing products and information, when contacting AngioDynamics customer service, or when responding to AngioDynamics questionnaires or surveys.

2.2. Personal Information You Share as a Registered User

Some features on the Sites may require you to register in order to get our authorization before you can use those features. 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 subscriptions.

In addition to information about your business, for security purposes, we require that you provide us with information such as names, addresses, email addresses, telephone numbers and other Personal 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 Information 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 Personal 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:

  1. to advise you of or provide additional information regarding products or services that may be available through AngioDynamics or its affiliates;
  2. to administer our business, the Sites, and our services in a manner consistent with the Terms of Use that govern your use of the Sites as well as all applicable laws, rules, regulations and other legal obligations; and
  3. 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 Sites 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 email and any email 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.

AngioDynamics may collect and use the Personal 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 AngioDynamics' products and services.

2.3. Personal Information You Share During Other Interactions with AngioDynamics

You may contact AngioDynamics to ask questions, discuss your concerns, or report issues regarding our products. If you communicate with or request information from AngioDynamics, you may be prompted to provide your contact information as well as any Personal Information that is relevant to your request.

2.4. Information That May Be Collected Automatically

When you use the Sites, we also may collect certain usage and device information automatically as described below.

2.5. IP Address

We may record the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of your computer or other electronic device when you visit the Sites. An IP address identifies the electronic device you use to access the Sites, which allows us to maintain communication with your computer as you move about Sites and to customize content.

2.6. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies

We also collect information about your use of Sites through tracking technologies such as cookies and web beacons. A “cookie” is a unique numeric code that is transferred to your computer to track your interests and preferences and to recognize you as a return visitor. A “web beacon” is a transparent graphic image placed on a website, email, or advertisement that enables the monitoring of things such as user activity and site traffic. These technologies help remember your preferences and allow us to bring you the content and features that are likely to be of greatest interest to you on the basis of “clickstream” data that shows your previous activities on Sites.

We use Google Analytics to better understand our audience. In connection with that, we, and Google, may use third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) – and in some cases first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) – to inform, optimize and serve information provided on our Sites as well as potentially displaying ads across the Internet, based on a user’s past visits to Sites.

We also may utilize Display Advertising (such as Retargeting with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting) to (i) show our ads based on your prior visits to Sites; and (ii) better understand our ad impressions and use of ad services. In connection with the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting service, we may use data from interest-based advertising or third-party audience data (such as age, gender and interests) with Google Analytics to understand and improve our marketing campaigns and Site content.

You can opt out of Google Ads by visiting http://www.google.com/ads/preferences. If you do not want your data used by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on at the Google Analytics opt-out page. Similarly, we may have LinkedIn tracking script running which serves advertisements based on activity on the Sites.

We may work with new technologies in the future that require cookies or web beacons to provide their services. As we work with new technologies, their descriptions will be updated in the Privacy Policy.

To learn more about cookies and other tracking technologies, including how to disable them, please visit http://www.allaboutcookies.org/. Please note that some cookies are essential to the functioning of our Sites and deleting or disabling them will reduce the Sites’ functionality.

2.7. Mobile Tracking

Our Sites are available either as mobile applications or mobile Sites that you can use on your mobile device. If you use a mobile device to access and use the Sites, we may collect the following mobile-specific information in addition to the other information described above: device or advertising ID, device type, hardware type, media access control (“MAC”) address, international mobile equipment identity (“IMEI”), the version of your mobile operating system, the platform used to access or download the Sites (e.g., Apple, Google, Amazon, Windows, etc.), location information, and usage information about your device and your use of the Sites.

2.8. Information Collected from Other Sources

We may combine information about you from a visit to one Site with information about you from visits to other Sites. We may also combine information about you that is collected through the Sites with information that we have collected offline, as well as with information provided to us by third parties, such as third-party list providers.

As noted above, AngioDynamics collects information from you in the course of your use of the Sites, products and services. We collect information from you when you request products or services. We collect information from you when you contact or communicate with us (including through the Sites, by email, phone, at tradeshows and conferences or otherwise). We also collect your Personal Information while monitoring the Sites, products and services. We gather information about you when you provide it to us, or interact with us directly, for instance engaging with our staff. We may also in certain cases collect or receive information about you from other sources.

2.9. Links to Other Websites

The Sites may contain links to other third-party websites that are outside our control and are not covered by this Privacy Policy. These sites are not controlled by AngioDynamics and AngioDynamics is not responsible for any content on those sites or their privacy policies, which may differ from ours.

You may be provided with online advertisements of AngioDynamics products and services on third-party websites and mobile services that are tailored to you, for example, on the basis of information that you provide to AngioDynamics or a third-party website you are visiting, or of your browsing activity, purchases, or interests. These types of tailored online advertisements may come through several sources, such as the following:

  • We may share with our advertising service providers your non-identifying information that we have obtained from cookies and other tracking technologies on our Sites.
  • Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to websites with which the browser communicates. As of the Effective Date of this Privacy Policy, an industry standard has not yet been established on how to respond to these signals.

5.2. Third Parties, Vendors, and Suppliers

We have relationships with suppliers and affiliated companies, who help us operate our business and for whom it may be necessary to have access to your Personal Information in the course of providing services to AngioDynamics. We may combine, share, and exchange your Personal Information with our related affiliated companies in an effort to assist in managing and providing products and services to you. We will not authorize these parties to use your Personal Information for any purpose that is not related to AngioDynamics and its related third parties’ business operations. We may also share your Personal Information with third parties to offer and provide information about affiliate products and services. We do not share Personal Information from countries that require consent, unless consent has been obtained in advance to sharing with related third parties. We require these third parties to handle your Personal Information collected in accordance with this Privacy Policy, and we will only share your Personal Information to the extent reasonably necessary to perform their functions.

5.3. Co-Branded Sites

We may partner with other companies to provide you with content or services on a joint or “co-branded” basis. At a co-branded site, you will see both the AngioDynamics logo and the logo of the co-branding partner displayed on your screen. You should read the individual privacy policies of our co-branding partners, as they may differ in some respects from ours. Reading these policies will help you to make an informed decision about whether to provide your information to a given site.

6. Your Privacy Choices and Rights – EU and EEA

The European Union’s (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and other countries’ privacy laws provide certain rights for individuals. Individuals located in the EU and the European Economic Area (EEA) have certain rights, which may only apply in certain circumstances and are subject to certain exemptions. You have the right to see and get a copy of Personal Information about you that we (as the “Controller” of your Personal Information, as defined in the GDPR) hold, subject to certain exemptions. You have the right as to ask us to make corrections to inaccurate or incomplete Personal Information about you. You may have the right to receive data you have provided to us in a machine-readable format and to transmit that data to another Controller in certain circumstances. You may also request the erasure of your Personal Information or the restriction of its processing, or object to the processing of Personal Information about you in certain circumstances and with certain exceptions. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time where we rely on consent to use your Personal Information. You have the right to complain to the relevant Data Protection Authority (an independent public authority unique to each EU country which is responsible for oversight of local GDPR compliance) where you think we have not used your Personal Information in accordance with data protection law.

6.1. Legal Basis for Processing – EU and EEA

For purposes of European data protection laws, AngioDynamics has set out below the legal basis that we rely on to use your Personal Information. The legal basis that applies in a particular instance will depend on for which of the specific purposes described above AngioDynamics is processing your Personal Information:

  • Performance of Contract – The use of Personal Information may be necessary to perform the contract that you have with us or to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you. For example, where you work for us either as an employee or a service provider or apply for a job with us your Personal Information will be necessary in connection with your contract of employment or services agreement. If you are a consumer or a user of our services, we will use your Personal Information to carry out our obligations under the contract that we have with you. We similarly process patient-related Personal Information from our customers to perform our contracts with them.
  • Consent – In certain cases, AngioDynamics may ask for your consent to collect and use your Personal Information. Should you choose to provide your consent, you may later withdraw your consent by contacting us as described in the “How to Contact Us” section below. If you have consented to a particular purpose for our use of your Personal Information, then we may rely on your consent until you withdraw it. Please note that the withdrawal of consent will not affect processing that has already occurred, and may affect our ability to provide products, services, or communications to you that are subject to the relevant consent.
  • Legal Obligations – In other instances, the use of your Personal Information may be necessary in order to comply with an applicable law or regulation. For example, we may disclose personal information for medical device regulatory reporting requirements, or to law enforcement in accordance with legal process.
  • Legitimate Business Interests – In still other instances, AngioDynamics may use your Personal Information based on legitimate business interests of AngioDynamics in communicating with you about our products and services, and about scientific research and educational opportunities. You have the right to opt-out of all such use of your Personal Information. You may do so by contacting us as described in the How to Contact Us section below.

7. Data Security

AngioDynamics maintains reasonable technical, administrative, and physical controls to secure any Personal Information collected through the Sites. However, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party could intercept an Internet transmission, or that someone will find a way to thwart our security systems. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting Personal Information over the Internet. AngioDynamics cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your Personal Information; therefore, when submitting Personal Information to the Sites, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks.

8. Anti-Spam Policy

AngioDynamics does not distribute or sell Personal Information from our opt-in lists. An email is spam if:

  1. The recipient's personal identity and context are irrelevant because the message is equally applicable to many other potential recipients; and
  2. The recipient has not verifiably granted deliberate, explicit, and still-revocable permission for it to be sent; and
  3. The transmission and reception of the message appears to the recipient to give a disproportionate benefit to the sender.

Our commitment:

  • AngioDynamics does not send out unsolicited email (unsolicited commercial email (UCE)/spam)
  • AngioDynamics does not knowingly do business with any company that participates in sending UCE/spam
  • AngioDynamics does not sell, distribute, or exchange Personal Information from our opt-in lists.

9. Third Party Sites and Social Media Plug-ins

This Privacy Policy does not apply to Sites that do not link to this Privacy Policy, or to third-party websites to which the Sites may link. The Sites may use social media plug-ins (e.g., the Facebook “Like” or “Share to Twitter” buttons) to enable you to easily share information with others. When you visit the Sites, the operator of the social plug-in can place a cookie on your computer or other electronic device that enables that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our Sites. If you are logged into a social media website (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.) while browsing on our Sites, the social media plug-in allows that social media website to receive information that you have visited our Sites. The social media plug-in also allows the social media website to share information about your activities on our Sites with other users of their social media website. These sharing settings are managed by the social media website and governed by its privacy policy.

10. Accessing Our Sites Globally; Transferring Your Information to the US

The Sites are owned and operated by AngioDynamics in the United States, but the information you provide will be accessible to our third parties, vendors, and suppliers in other countries in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Furthermore, if you are visiting the Sites from a country other than the United States, your communication with us will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international borders. Where we transfer information outside the EEA, we will implement appropriate measures to ensure your Personal Information remains protected in accordance with applicable data protection laws. The level of legal protection for Personal Information is not the same in all countries and entities outside the United States may not be subject to laws that provide the same level of protection as your country; however, we will take the security measures described in this Privacy Policy in an effort to keep your information secure. By using the Sites, you understand that your Personal Information will be stored and processed in the United States and in any country to which we may transfer your information in the course of our business operations. Please see the Section Information We Share for more detail on how the information may be shared with AngioDynamics related entities and third parties.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the Internet is not completely secure. Although we use reasonable efforts to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of information transmitted to our Sites and any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your Personal Information, we will use reasonable and appropriate security measures to try to protect unauthorized access.

11. Notice to California Residents

Under the CCPA law, you may request (i) a notice disclosing the categories of personal information about you that we have shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the preceding calendar year; and (b) that we delete any Personal Information we have collected about you. To request either or both of these actions, please submit your request using the instructions listed under the How to Contact Us section below. Please allow 30 days for a response.

To make this request, California residents may contact us at legal@angiodynamics.com

12. Changes to Our Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change the terms of this Privacy Policy at any time. Any changes to this Privacy Policy will be reflected on the Sites with a new effective date. AngioDynamics encourages you to review this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Your continued use of the Sites after we post changes is deemed to be acceptance to those changes.

This Privacy Policy was last updated on April 28, 2020.
