Collection, Use and Transfer of Your Information

You can visit most of the Emergent site without disclosing your personally identifiable information (“personal data”). Personal data is information that can be used to distinguish or trace an individual’s identity, either alone or when combined with other personal or identifying information that is linked or linkable to a specific individual. However, you may choose to provide us with your personal data, for example when you contact us, register for seminars, activities and programs available on our website or when you request information or services. You also may decide to provide us voluntarily with personal data of a third person, such as your spouse, colleague or friend. In such case, we assume that you have an unrestricted permission of such person to provide such personal data to Emergent.

Types of personal data that Emergent may directly collect from you include, but are not limited to:

Emergent may use suppliers to collect, process, store, use, analyze and/or transfer the data on its behalf. In such case, it is Emergent’s practice to require that these suppliers handle the personal data they process or transfer in a manner consistent with Emergent’s policies. By submitting the personal data to us, you acknowledge and agree with your data being processed and/or transferred on Emergent’s behalf by its suppliers.

Emergent shall not be liable for any disclosure, unauthorized use, loss, damage, expense, harm or inconvenience resulting from the loss, delay, interception, corruption, intervention, misuse or alteration of any personal information due to any reason beyond Emergent’s reasonable control.
