For example, if you are logged into your account and browse certain types of laboratory equipment or a certain grade of chemicals, we can use that information and other information associated with your account to make recommendations or inform you when new products that you may be interested in are available. We may also use provide information about the products you viewed on our website to our sales personnel so they can determine if you are interested in purchasing those products. As another example, if you and other customers in the same geographic area order a high volume of a certain product or service, we can make sure that we have adequate stocks of that product or adequate resources to fulfil that service in that geographic area.
Providing and improving our products and services. We use data to provide and improve the products and services that we offer and to perform operations that are essential to our business. This includes sourcing, manufacturing and distributing the products, maintaining and improving the performance of the products, developing new products, conducting research, providing customer support, and developing and improving services. Examples of such uses include the following:
Communications. We use the data that we collect from you to communicate with you and personalize our communications with you. For example, we may contact you by e‐mail or other means to remind you that you placed products in your online shopping cart and those products are ready for purchase, to notify you when a product that you frequently purchase has been updated or improved or when we have special pricing on products you have shown an interest in, to update you on the status of your order, to invite you to participate in a survey, or to send you a publication relevant to your areas of professional interest.
Marketing. We use data we collect through our business interactions with you and through our websites to market products and services. For example:
The marketing and promotional items that you see may be selected based on data we have collected about you, such as your professional interests, your transactions, or the content you view while logged into our websites. For example, if you are interested in chromatography, we may market chromatography products and services to you.
We share your personal data with your consent or as necessary to complete the transactions that you initiated with us so that we can provide the products and services that you requested or authorized. For example, we share your name, delivery address, and other relevant contact information with third parties, such as our suppliers, when you order products from us that are shipped directly from the supplier’s facility to you. We also share your name, delivery address, and other relevant information with our subcontractors that provide services to you that you ordered through us. Also, when you provide payment data to make a purchase, we will share payment data with banks and third‐party payment processors so that we can receive payment and to protect you and us from fraud and credit risk.
In addition, we share personal data among Sri Indra Diagnostics‐controlled affiliates and subsidiaries so that we can provide products and services to you or your organization across the globe. We also share personal data with our vendors or other third parties that work on our behalf in ways that are consistent with the purposes described in this Privacy Statement. For example, we have entered into contracts with companies to store and secure data in their facilities or to provide software to help us run and manage the data generated by our business. The data that these companies store, secure, and help us manage contains your personal data. These companies must agree to follow data privacy protections and security requirements imposed by law and by the contracts that we have signed with these companies, and they cannot use the personal data that they receive from us for any other purpose other than the specific purposes related to our business. We may also disclose personal data as part of a corporate transaction such as a merger or sale of assets.
Finally, we will access, transfer, disclose, and preserve personal data when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to comply with applicable law or respond to a valid legal process, including from law enforcement or other government agencies; to help prevent the loss of life or serious injury of anyone; and other reasons permitted by data privacy laws.
