Biorasi, LLC, operating through its affiliates and representative offices located throughout the world (collectively, the “Company”) is strongly committed to protecting your privacy and has implemented the below to ensure all the personally identifiable information you provide is protected.
Information Collection and Use
While using the various features provided on our website, the Company may collect PII, which is information that identifies an individual or relates to an identifiable individual. PII may include, but is not limited to, your name, telephone number, physical address, email address, company affiliation and associated interests.
The Company may also collect other information through your interaction with and use of the website and its features which does not reveal your specific identity or does not directly relate to an individual. This other information may include, but is not limited to, browser and device information, data collected through automated electronic interactions, application usage data, demographic information, geographic or geo-location information, and statistical and aggregated information.
Statistical and aggregated information does not directly identify a person, but it may be derived from PII. For example, such information may be used to calculate the percentage of users in a particular zip code. Or the PII may be combined with other information, such as combining a precise geographic location with your name. If PII is combined with other information, the combined information shall be treated as PII.
The Company collects information in a variety of ways that fit broadly into the following general categories:
