How does Lenco collect information online?
Lenco collects information in two ways:
- Personal Information You, You're Doctor or Medical Office May Submit: Lenco collects personal information that you enter into data fields on Lenco Site. For example, you may submit your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for Lenco programs, contact Lenco customer service, or respond to Lenco surveys. To protect your privacy, you should not provide Lenco with any information that is not specifically requested. Your information may also be provided by your doctor or medical office to assist in processing the requested information. That information is collected in order to assist in the job function as required and information may be stored and collected for use again in the future.
- Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information: Lenco Site may collect information about your visits to Lenco Site without you actively submitting such information. Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags, and web beacons. Your Internet browser automatically transmits to Lenco Site some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the website you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of Lenco Site easier by allowing Lenco to provide better service, customize sites based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve Lenco Site. Certain features of Lenco Site may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identity you without additional identifiable information.
In what circumstances might Lenco collect and use personal information?

After you have entered personal information into a form or data field on a Lenco Site, Lenco may use certain identifying technologies to allow that website to "remember" your personal preferences, such as sections of that website that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user ID. We may also use this personal information for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding Lenco's products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions.

You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want Lenco Site to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to "remember" your personal information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, Lenco Site that uses tracking technologies to collect unidentifiable information does not generally provide you with the ability to opt out of the tracking technologies. Some Internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentifiable information.

In addition, Lenco's practice is to require its contractors to keep your personal information confidential and to use personal information only to perform functions for Lenco.
Does Lenco share personal information with third parties?
As a general rule, Lenco does not share your personal information with third parties, unless it is necessary by law, to conduct a joint program or to carry out a program or activity through a contractor. Where required by law, Lenco will not disclose your personal information to third parties for those third parties marketing purposes, unless you have been provided with an opportunity to opt into or opt out of this disclosure. However, if Lenco sells one of its product lines or divisions, your personal information may be transferred to the buyer so that the buyer can continue to provide you with information and services. If Lenco provides your personal information to individuals and entities which assist us with our business activities, it is Lenco's practice to require those individuals and entities to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for Lenco.
