  3. Use and sharing of information

    1. Demy-Colton does not sell, share, or rent User Information to third parties other than as disclosed in this Privacy Policy. Any use of User Information not disclosed in this Privacy Policy will only be made with your permission.

    2. By registering to use a Demy-Colton product or service, you agree that Demy-Colton may send you promotional communications (such as information about future events or other Demy-Colton products or services), unless you choose to opt out of receiving such communications, either at the time of registration or subsequently. Such communications will generally be sent via email, but they may be sent via other methods from time to time. See Section 5 below for more information on opting out.

    3. By registering to use or receive a Demy-Colton product or service, you agree that Demy-Colton may contact you by post, telephone, email or fax to keep you updated on arrangements being made for the product or service for which you have registered.

    4. You agree that Demy-Colton may use User Information in a manner reasonably required to operate its services and products. For example, if you become a Registered User by registering for an event, and submitting User Information to a Demy-Colton (or Demy-Colton utilized) registration or partnering system, you agree that your User Information can be reproduced, replicated, published, displayed, disseminated, and downloaded and printed for personal use by all other Registered Users of that event, service or product. You also agree that Demy-Colton may use User Information for internal record keeping, analysis, research, product development and for answering your queries.

    5. If you have posted information about licensing opportunities in your company’s profile and selected the option to make such information available to other Demy-Colton (or Demy-Colton utilized) registration or partnering system users, you agree that other users (such as pharmaceutical companies) shall be entitled to view and export such information in order to facilitate their in-house evaluation and management of licensing opportunities. Demy-Colton will not disclose your email address or direct telephone number in connection with any product (other than as disclosed in this Privacy Policy) unless you include those contact details in such licensing opportunity information and select this option yourself.

    6. You agree that Demy-Colton can display certain limited User Information on pages of our publicly (i.e. non-private) websites, which are visible to website visitors who are not registered users. Demy-Colton may choose to display information such as your name, job position/function, company name, country, a company profile copied or abstracted from company data you have provided (including company address, categories and description), and an indication that you attended and that your company was represented at certain specified events. You also agree that any messages you post as part of group discussions on our publicly accessible websites will be publicly visible.

    7. If you have registered for an event run by a third party (for example, at which Demy-Colton is providing only the partnering service) you agree that Demy-Colton can disclose your User Information to that third party. You should review such third party’s terms and conditions and privacy policy and satisfy yourself that the third party handles your User Information in an appropriate way, as their agreement with you is independent of Demy-Colton’.

    8. Certain Demy-Colton events are produced in collaboration with third parties, as stated on the relevant event websites. Where you have registered to attend such an event, in order to enable the third party to perform its role, you agree that Demy-Colton may share with such third party your first and last name, company name and title, email address, mailing address, and telephone number that you submitted when registering for the particular event. If you do not wish this information to be disclosed to the third party, please inform Demy-Colton using any of the methods listed below.

    9. You agree that Demy-Colton may share User Information with: (i) companies performing services on Demy-Colton’ behalf (such as marketing, IT or delivery services) who will only use the User Information to provide that service; (ii) event-specific partners such as EBD for Biotech Showcase; and (iii) a purchaser or potential purchaser of all or part of the Demy-Colton business.

  4. Usage information


    In your use of Demy-Colton products, you will generate “Usage Information”. This includes your messages, participants of meetings, and information on how you use the products.

    1. Information on how you use Demy-Colton products will be stored, but will only ever be disclosed by Demy-Colton in aggregate form and no specific business relationships will be identifiable.

    2. Messages you send and receive on a Demy-Colton (or Demy-Colton utilized) registration or partnering system, and the identity of meeting participants, are the property of your company and are potentially visible to all of your colleagues and the companies you have communicated with.

    3. Messages you send and receive on a Demy-Colton (or Demy-Colton utilized) registration or partnering system, are personal to you and are not shared with your colleagues.

    4. If you have registered for an event run by a third party (for example, at which Demy-Colton is providing only the partnering service) you agree that Demy-Colton can disclose your Usage Information to that third party, if they request it. You should review such third party’s terms and conditions and privacy policy and satisfy yourself that the third party handles your Usage Information in an appropriate way, as their agreement with you is independent of Demy-Colton.

  5. Opting out or correcting information


    If you no longer wish to receive our promotional communications, you may opt-out of receiving them by following the instructions included in each communication, or by contacting Demy-Colton using any of the methods listed below.

    All or some of your User Information will be retained in order to facilitate your future use of Demy-Colton’ services or products. If your User Information is incorrect or changes, you may be able to correct or update parts of it using edit profile functions. Alternatively, or if you no longer wish for Demy-Colton to retain User Information, please contact Demy-Colton by any of the methods listed below.

  7. Photographs and video
Demy-Colton or Demy- Colton agents may take photographs and videos (“Images”) of typical scenes of Demy-Colton events and event-related functions, some of which may feature identifiable attendees going about their business. These Images are frequently made available for view on Demy-Colton websites, or may be used in marketing material. Demy-Colton will never use without your express permission Images of you that clearly suggest a specific business interaction, or are frivolous in nature.

  8. Security and transfer of information

    Demy-Colton takes your data privacy rights very seriously and takes reasonable precautions to protect User Information. Only certain individuals within the company are given degrees of access to Registered Users’ Information according to job function and necessity.

    Demy-Colton follows generally accepted industry standards to protect User Information, both during transmission and once it is received. No method of transmission over the internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure, however. Therefore, while Demy-Colton strives to use commercially acceptable means to protect your User Information, its absolute security cannot be guaranteed.

    If you have any questions on security issues concerning the data Demy-Colton holds on you, please contact Demy-Colton by any of the methods listed below.
