Privacy Policy

This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) outlines the kind of information that Response may collect while you visit this website (the “Site”) and how Response may use such information. In this Privacy Policy, the terms “we”, “us” and “our” refer to Response Biomedical Corp. and all its affiliates (collectively, “Response”).

Information Automatically Collected and Stored

During your visit, we may automatically collect and store “Non-Identifiable Information” about your computer and your visit. Non-Identifiable Information is information that cannot be associated with or traced back to a specific individual. Non-Identifiable Information that may be collected during your visit includes the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the Internet address of any website from which you linked directly to this Site, the date and time you arrived at this Site, how much time you spent on this Site, which pages of this Site you visited, your Internet protocol address, and your computer's operating system and browser software.

This Site may transfer certain bits of information called "cookies" to your computer. Cookies can tell us how and when pages in this Site are visited and by how many people. This technology collects Non-Identifiable Information in an aggregate form and does not collect an individual visitor's identifying information. Most web browsers allow the user to deny or accept the cookie feature.

Response uses Non-Identifiable Information to measure the performance of this Site in order to improve and customize it in favour of our visitors. Response may entrust third parties with automatically collected Non-Identifiable Information on our behalf in order to manage or improve this Site.

Personal Information Voluntarily Provided

“Personal Information” is information that is personally identifiable to you. Personal Information that Response may collect includes your name, e-mail address and any information that you may provide as part of an employment application. We will only collect, store or use Personal Information when it is voluntarily submitted to us. Response uses Personal Information to respond to inquiries and requests of visitors, to maintain, evaluate and improve this Site and to evaluate, process and respond to employment applications.

By using this Site or providing information to us, you understand and consent to the collection, processing, transfer and use of your Personal Information for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy. Subject to applicable law, we and our Service Providers (as defined below) may disclose your Personal Information:

  • to unaffiliated third parties that are under contract to perform services for or on our behalf ("Service Providers");
  • to the acquiring party in the event of a merger, liquidation, sale or transfer of the business to which such information relates, or as part of due diligence to a potential acquiring party for any such proposed transaction;
  • to persons as permitted or required by applicable law or regulation; or
  • to law enforcement personnel and other agencies, or as part of a legal process, in order to protect our property or in furtherance of an investigation regarding a breach of rules and policies governing this Site, unauthorized access to or use of this Site, or any other illegal activities.

When your Personal Information is no longer required for the purposes for which it was collected or for other legal requirements, your Personal Information will be made anonymous or will be destroyed unless your further consent is obtained for the retention of your Personal Information for additional purposes not stated in this Privacy Policy.
