As a user of this Internet Web Site (“Site”), you ("you" or "user") are valued by Mallinckrodt. Mallinckrodt is committed to protecting the personally identifiable information (“Personal Information”) provided by and collected from you on this Site in connection with the functions, facilities and services offered on this Site.
What Personal Information Does Mallinckrodt Collect From Site Users?
We may gather Personal Information so that we can improve and personalize your experience with Mallinckrodt. Personal Information that we collect falls into the following primary categories. First, may receive Personal Information that you enter into the Site, provide in an online form, or provide in any other way. For example, Personal Information may be collected to facilitate newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, or order processing, as well as facilitating participation in sweepstakes and other promotions. You can choose not to provide some or all of the Personal Information we ask for, but this may prevent you from using some of the Site's features, newsletter subscriptions or promotions.
In addition to the preceding categories of Personal Information, Mallinckrodt also collects certain non-identifiable information (the “Non-Identifiable Information”). Whenever you interact with Mallinckrodt or navigate the Site, we receive and store certain types of Non-Identifiable Information. For example, we may use “cookies” to obtain information when your Web browser accesses this Site. A cookie is an alphanumeric identifier which we transfer to your computer via your Web browser and store on your computer's hard drive. The cookie file allows us to recognize your computer when you visit the Site. On most Web browsers you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie, and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they may enable you to take advantage of some of the Site's best features.
In addition, Mallinckrodt and its third-party service providers passively collect and use information in a variety of ways, including, but not limited to:
Mallinckrodt may obtain information that is collected by most browsers, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version, and Internet browser type and version. Mallinckrodt may collect similar information, such as your device type and identifier, if you access the Site through a mobile device.
Using Flash cookies: Mallinckrodt may use Adobe Flash technology (including Flash Local Stored Objects ["Flash LSOs"]) that allows Mallinckrodt to, among other things, serve you with more tailored information, facilitate your ongoing access to and use of the Site, and collect and store information about your use of the Site. If you do not want Flash LSOs stored on your computer, you can adjust the settings of your Flash player to block Flash LSO storage using the tools contained in the website Storage Settings Panel. You can also control Flash LSOs by going to the Global Storage Settings Panel and following the instructions (which may include instructions that explain, for example, how to delete existing Flash LSOs (referred to as "information" on the Macromedia site), how to prevent Flash LSOs from being placed on your computer without your being asked, and (for Flash Player 8 and later) how to block Flash LSOs that are not being delivered by the operator of the page you are on at the time). Please note that setting the Flash Player to restrict or limit acceptance of Flash LSOs may reduce or impede the functionality of some Flash applications, including, potentially, Flash applications used in connection with the Site or its online content.
