Your use of the Online Services is governed at all times by the TESARO Terms of Use.

PERSONAL DATA WE COLLECT

Information You Provide

We and our service providers collect any personal data that you provide when you use the Online Services, including when you sign up for a patient support program, request a visit from a sales representative, apply for a job, or ask to receive newsletters or other communications. The personal data that you provide us can include, but is not limited to:

(a) your name, phone number, email address, physical address, and other contact or registration information;

(c) other personal data you provide when you contact us, including any health-related information.

We and our authorized service providers may automatically collect certain technical information over time and across different websites about your use of the Online Services, such as your Internet Protocol address or other device identifier, browser type, operating system, the pages you view on the Online Services, the pages you view immediately before and after you access the Online Services, your movement between different TESARO websites, and the search terms you enter on the Online Services. This data allows us to recognize you and personalize your experience, and to improve the Online Services and the services and data we provide.

Cookies and Similar Technologies

We and our service providers may collect personal data by automated means such as cookies, web beacons, log files, and similar technology. A “cookie” is a file that websites send to a visitor’s internet-connected device to uniquely identify the visitor’s browser or to store personal data or settings in the browser. A “web beacon,” also known as an internet tag, pixel tag, action tag, or clear GIF, is a clear graphic image that may be loaded by a web browser to record visits to a particular website or may be embedded in an email to record when the email is opened. A “log file” is a file that records how users interact with websites or a server.

Our Online Services use the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:

The analytics providers that administer these services use technologies such as cookies, web beacons, and log files to collect personal data to help us analyze how visitors use our Online Services and improve the overall performance and user experience of the Online Services. These analytics providers may also collect personal data about your use of other websites over time, if those other websites also use the same analytics providers.
