Pfizer recognises the importance of protecting the privacy of information we may collect from our on-line visitors. To this end, we are committed to using our best efforts to respect the privacy of our on-line visitors. It is our intent to balance our legitimate business interests in collecting and using information received from and about you with your reasonable expectations of privacy. The following is the way we handle information learned about you from your visit to our website.
Some Pfizer web sites deposit certain bits of information called "cookies" in a visitor's computer. Cookies are sent back only to the web site that deposited them when a visitor returns to that site. Cookies can tell us how and when pages in a website are visited and by how many people. This technology does not collect personal identifiable information; the information collected is in an aggregate, non-identifiable form. With the information we can learn through this technology, we hope to improve our sites.
In addition, we may gather information about you that is automatically collected by our Web server, such as your IP address and domain name and how you navigate our Site. See also, the Section below on Cookies and Other Tools. Pfizer may use this information to customize its offerings and presentations.
How We Use Personal Information

To Serve You:
We may use your personal information to respond to your inquiries and provide the products and services you request. When you respond to a promotion or service offering, we will provide the specific materials you request as well as communications about related products, brands, health topics and disease states. We also use your information to deliver the content and services we believe you will find the most relevant. For example, a female user may receive information on products targeted at women that a male user will not see; a user who we know is a healthcare professional who treats arthritis may receive information relating to new arthritis therapies. In addition, we may use personal identifiers to recognize you when you arrive at the Site via an external link, e.g., such as a link appearing on a third party site or in an email Pfizer has presented to you.

To Serve Third Parties You Ask Us to Serve:

Some of these Special Programs may involve sharing information with a third party and Pfizer will provide you with notice of this. You may be offered the opportunity to agree to or opt-out of the sharing of your information with such third party. But, in some instances, it may be necessary to agree to share with a third party in order to participate in a particular Special Program. If you consent/do not opt-out, we will share your information with the third party; and the personal information you provide may be used by the third party in accordance with the Special Program Terms and, unless provided otherwise in such Special Program Terms, for their own purposes in accordance with their own policies/terms.
