Collection and Use of Personal Data
Your privacy is important to FORUM Pharmaceuticals. We at times collect, retain and utilize Personal Data about you to operate our business and to make information about FORUM Pharmaceuticals and our services available. The term “Personal Data” means personally identifiable information that we obtain about you, including your name or email address. We recognize and respect your privacy concerns about this information. We obtain your Personal Data directly from you at the Site or from your other transactions or experiences with the FORUM Pharmaceuticals. Also, when you visit the Site, we collect information that does not identify you to measure the use of the Site and to improve the content of the Site, as described below.

As is true of most websites, FORUM Pharmaceuticals may gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information, which does not identify you, includes Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We may use this information to track user habits and improve the functionality of the Site as a result of our observations.
We use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. These cookies terminate once the user closes the browser. By default, we use a persistent cookie that stores your login ID (but not your password) to make it easier for you to login when you visit the Site in the future. In addition, when a user views one of our Site advertisements, we may store some information on that user’s computer. Cookies allow for tailoring the Site and its advertisements to better match users’ interests and preferences. Most Internet browsers enable users to erase cookies from their computer’s hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. FORUM Pharmaceuticals does not collect Personal Data automatically, but may tie information that does not identify you (that is collected automatically) to previously submitted Personal Data.

For example, sometimes a third party vendor may have access to your Personal Data in order to support our information technology or help obtain, compile and manage the data. All FORUM Pharmaceuticals vendors operate under federal and state laws regarding consumer privacy.
