Cesca Therapeutics, Inc. Web Privacy Statement
Effective: June 1, 2005
Cesca makes reasonable efforts to protect your personal information. Cesca’s privacy program and data security activities are governed by a number of policies and procedures. With respect to personal information about individuals (“data subjects”) located in European Union (EU) countries, Cesca also adheres to a self-regulatory program that complies with the Safe Harbor privacy principles set forth in the July 2000 agreement between the EU and the United States Department of Commerce. For more information about the Safe Harbor Program, please go to http://www.export.gov/safeharbor.
Cesca collects, processes, and stores personal information for the following purposes:
* determining, evaluating, and implementing employment-related actions and obligations. * designing, evaluating, and administering compensation, benefits, and other human resources programs. * designing, evaluating, and implementing employment-related education and training programs. * monitoring and evaluating employee conduct and performance. * maintaining work premise and employee security, and health and safety. * making data subjects’ names, images, and other items of business-contact information available by means of website posting, business cards, brochures, and other promotional media to Cesca’s present and potential customers, suppliers, contractors, joint venture partners, other business associates, and employees. * maintaining business records relating to past, present, and potential customers, suppliers, contractors, joint venture partners, other business associates, and employees. * conducting auditing, accounting, financial, and economic analyses. * facilitating business communications, negotiations, transactions, conferences, and compliance with contractual and legal obligations.
In the event Cesca intends to use or transfer personal information about EU data subjects for reasons that are not consistent with the above, the affected data subject(s) will be given the opportunity to opt-out of such intended use or transfer. Sensitive information (e.g. medical or health condition, racial or ethnic origin) will not be used or transferred for purposes inconsistent with the above unless the affected data subject(s) expressly agree(s) to such use or transfer.
Cesca may transfer personal information to a third party acting as its agent (e.g., consultants, tax advisors and preparers, accountants, auditors, lawyers, financial services providers and benefit vendors) if such third party confirms that it provides the same level of protection required by the Safe Harbor privacy principles. In such instances, notice and choice will not be provided to the affected data subject(s) unless Cesca intends that such agent will use the personal information for a purpose incompatible with the purposes mentioned above. Notice and choice are provided to data subjects if personal information is proposed to be transferred to a third party that is not an agent of Cesca.
Cesca takes care to secure personal information submitted to us by our customers and website visitors and users. Due to established internal control methods and security practices and measures, Cesca protects all of its collected personal information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or alteration. We protect your personal information using several means. Physical security is designed to prevent unauthorized access to database equipment while electronic security measures continuously monitor access to our servers and provide protection from “hacking” or any other unauthorized access. Additional safeguards are in place to ensure that access to collected personal information is limited to only such individuals who may require access in order to provide services consistent with our legitimate business purposes, as described above. Although Cesca will make all reasonable efforts to protect your personal information, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way to thwart our security and protection measures and gain access to your personal information.
