Evotec AG internet privacy statement

Evotec AG respects the privacy of visitors to its web sites and is committed to the protection of their personal information. This privacy statement explains data collection and use practices of the Evotec AG site (the "site").

Binding Nature

By accessing and using the site, you agree and consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your personal information as outlined in this Privacy Statement.

Description of the information Evotec AG may collect

1. Personally Identifiable Information

Evotec AG collects personally identifiable information (i.e. information from which you can be identified, such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address) only when it is asked for and/or you voluntarily submit it to us on this site. We may use the information to respond to your requests, improve our level of service and the content of our web site; provide you with tips, helpful information, product news and updates; notify you of new Evotec AG products and services; seek your views on our products and services; and for our own internal purposes.

2. Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Evotec AG also collects non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to track data such as the total number of visits to our web sites, the number of visitors to each page of our web sites, and the domain names of our visitors' internet service providers. We use this information, which remains in aggregate form, to understand how our visitors use our web sites so that we may improve them and the services we offer. We may also share this information with other companies within the Evotec AG group and with other third parties. NO PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION IS DISCLOSED IN THIS PROCESS.

Use of IP Addresses

An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your internet service provider or through your organization's local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Web servers automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online.

Evotec AG, or third party companies acting on behalf of Evotec AG, may collect IP addresses for the purposes of systems administration and to audit the use of our site. We do not ordinarily link a user's IP address to personally identifiable information of that user, which means each user's session will be logged, but the user remains anonymous to us. However, we may use IP addresses to identify users of our site when we feel it is necessary to enforce compliance with the site's terms of use, or to protect our service, site or other users.

Cookies

In all cases in which cookies are used, we will not collect personally identifiable information without your explicit permission.
