This data is used to deliver customized content and advertising within ALIMERA to customers whose behavior indicates that they are interested in a particular subject area. ALIMERA websites will disclose your personal information, without notice, only if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to: (a) conform to the edicts of the law or comply with legal process served on ALIMERA or the site; (b) protect and defend the rights or property of ALIMERA; and, (c) act under exigent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of ALIMERA, or the public.

Use of Cookies

The ALIMERA websites use “cookies” to help you personalize your online experience. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server. Our text based cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you, and can only be read by a web server in the domain that issued the cookie to you. One of the primary purposes of cookies is to provide a convenience feature to save you time. The purpose of a cookie is to tell the Web server that you have returned to a specific page. For example, if you personalize ALIMERA pages, or register with ALIMERA site or services, a cookie helps ALIMERA to recall your specific information on subsequent visits. This simplifies the process of recording your personal information, such as billing addresses, shipping addresses, and so on. When you return to the same ALIMERA website, the information you previously provided can be retrieved, so you can easily use the ALIMERA features that you customized. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies. Most Web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. If you choose to decline cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the interactive features of the ALIMERA services or websites you visit.

Security of your Personal Information

ALIMERA secures your personal information from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. ALIMERA secures the personally identifiable information you provide on computer servers in a controlled, secure environment, protected from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. When personal information (such as a credit card number) is transmitted to other websites, it is protected through the use of encryption, such as the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.
