SeaSpine Orthopedics Corporation Privacy Policy
Welcome to www.seaspine.com (“Site”). This Site is owned by SeaSpine Orthopedics Corporation, a Delaware corporation, (“SeaSpine,” “our,” “we,” or “us”).

YOUR PRIVACY IS IMPORTANT TO US. PLEASE READ THIS PRIVACY POLICY TO LEARN ABOUT THE INFORMATION THAT SEASPINE COLLECTS FROM YOU AND HOW SEASPINE USES THAT INFORMATION.

BY USING THE SITE YOU CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION, USE, AND TRANSFER OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA AS DESCRIBED IN THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, THEN PLEASE DO NOT USE THE SITE.

PLEASE BE AWARE THAT SEASPINE AND ALL ASSOCIATED SERVICES AND SYSTEMS ARE HOUSED ON SERVERS IN THE UNITED STATES. IF YOU ARE LOCATED OUTSIDE OF THE UNITED STATES, INFORMATION WE COLLECT IS PROCESSED AND STORED IN THE UNITED STATES, WHICH MAY NOT OFFER THE SAME LEVEL OF PRIVACY PROTECTION AS THE COUNTRY WHERE YOU RESIDE OR ARE A CITIZEN. BY USING THE SITE AND PROVIDING INFORMATION TO US, YOU CONSENT TO THE TRANSFER TO AND PROCESSING OF THE INFORMATION IN THE UNITED STATES.

Scope
This Privacy Policy describes the information that SeaSpine collects (directly or indirectly) and why we collect it, what we do with the information we collect and how you can manage your Personal Information (defined below).

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any website or service that does not display or link to this Privacy Policy.

This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and made a part of SeaSpine’s Terms of Use. If you have not done so already, please also review the Terms of Use.

About Children
This Site is not intended for children under the age of 18. We will not knowingly collect information from Site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to websites.

Active Information Collection
Like many websites, this Site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via email and feedback forms. Some of the information that you submit may constitute Personal Information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, email address, phone number, and so on). Some areas of this Site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (e.g., investor alerts) or to participate in a particular activity. You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.

Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through a website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without you actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags, and navigational data collection.

We use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses on this Site. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider (ISP) so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our Site, and administer and improve the Site.

A “cookie” is a bit of information that a website sends to your Web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences.
Session cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your Web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to improve navigation on websites and to collect aggregate statistical information. This Site uses session cookies.

Persistent cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (e.g., passwords), helping to determine what areas of the website visitors find most valuable, and customizing the website based on your preferences. This Site uses persistent cookies.
“Internet tags” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the website server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. We do not use Internet tags at this Site.

“Navigational data” (“log files,” “server logs,” and “clickstream” data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors. This Site uses navigational data.

Do Not Track: Some web browsers (including Safari, Internet Explorer, Firefox, and Chrome) incorporate a “Do Not Track” (DNT) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Not all browsers offer a DNT option and DNT signals are not yet uniform. For this reason, many website operators, including SeaSpine, do not respond to DNT signals.

Use and Disclosure of Information
SeaSpine uses your Personal Information for the purposes for which you gave it to us. For example, if you have expressed an interest in a particular product or becoming a distributor, we will use your data to provide you with the requested information. We may also ask for your permission to send you information on other SeaSpine products that we believe may be of interest to you.
We also may use your Personal Information and data concerning your use of this website for analytics purposes. For example, we may use this data to determine which parts of our Site are of most interest to users, which parts are of least interest, and to modify the Site accordingly. Except as otherwise stated, we may use your information to improve the content of our Site, to customize the Site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it) for our marketing and research purposes, to consider you for employment, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

We may disclose your Personal Information with other SeaSpine affiliates, partners with whom we are jointly marketing a product or service, and service providers whom we have engaged to assist us in our business functions. These entities will be required to abide by this Privacy Policy. In addition, we may disclose your Personal Information to third parties, located in the United States and/or any other country, but only:

i. to contractors we use to support our business (e.g., fulfillment services, technical support, delivery services, and financial institutions), in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy;
ii. in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of this Site to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy; or
iii. where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this Site that is not in personally identifiable form.

If you subscribe to receive one or more promotional communications from SeaSpine, you can later unsubscribe by following the instructions in such communications.

We will also disclose your personally identifiable information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation, legal process, or other government authority (such as reporting safety information to the Food and Drug Administration); to investigate fraud; to protect your safety or the safety of others; or when we have reason to believe that disclosing this information is necessary to protect our rights or the rights of a third party who may be harmed by your activities.

Applicable law may also require SeaSpine to disclose your Personal Information if: (i) reasonably necessary to comply with legal process (such as a court order, subpoena, or search warrant) or other legal requirements; (ii) disclosure would mitigate SeaSpine’s liability in an actual or threatened lawsuit; (iii) necessary to protect legal rights of SeaSpine, users, customers, business partners, or other interested parties; or (iv) necessary for the prevention or detection of crime (subject in each case to applicable law). For residents of the European Economic Area, SeaSpine will disclose Personal Information only when permitted to do so under applicable European and European Union Member States’ national data protection laws and regulations. We will not sell your Personal Information to any other company or organization except we may transfer your Personal Information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation, or other corporate reorganization in which SeaSpine participates or to a purchaser of all or a portion of SeaSpine’s assets. Such successor entity shall be bound by the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

Access and Correction
SeaSpine is committed to respecting your right to access and correct your Personal Information. To keep your Personal Information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as at privacy@seaspine.com. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct Personal Information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this Site.

California Shine the Light Law: California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits users who are California residents to obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of third parties to whom we have disclosed Personal Information (if any) for direct marketing purposes in the preceding calendar year. If you are a California resident and you wish to make such a request, please send an email with “California Privacy Rights” in the subject line to privacy@seaspine.com or write us at: SeaSpine Orthopedic Corporation, 5770 Armada Drive, Carlsbad, CA 92008.

Security
We take reasonable steps to protect the information that you provide through our Site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, email sent to or from this Site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this Site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them. You are responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of your account password and for any access to or use of the Site using your password, whether or not authorized by you. Please notify us immediately of any unauthorized use of your password or account or any other breach of security.

As a result, while we strive to protect your information and privacy, we cannot guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your information. If we believe that the security of your information may have been compromised, we will endeavor to give you appropriate notice as quickly as possible, including by email, and in accordance with applicable laws.

If we become aware of a breach that affects the security of your Personal Information, we will provide you with notice as required by applicable law. To the extent permitted by applicable law, SeaSpine will provide any such notice to you at your email address. By using the Site, you agree to accept notice electronically.

We retain Personal Information in identifiable form only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the Personal Information was provided to SeaSpine or, if longer to comply with legal obligations, to resolve disputes, to enforce agreements, and similar essential purposes.
