Please Read Carefully Prior to Using This Website

BioMarin Pharmaceutical Inc. ("BioMarin") respects the privacy of visitors to its Websites and values the confidence of its customers, partners, patients, and employees.

This Privacy Policy and Notice of Information Practices ("Privacy Notice") sets forth BioMarin's practices regarding the collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide through this site (the "Website"). Please read this entire Privacy Notice before using this Website or submitting information to BioMarin through this Website.

By using this Website and whenever you submit information through this site to BioMarin, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Notice and the applicable Terms of Use. Use of this Website is conditioned upon your acceptance of the terms and conditions of this Privacy Notice, which is part of and incorporated by reference into, the Terms of Use of this Website.

Data Collection

Visitors to BioMarin's websites can generally visit without revealing any personally identifiable information. BioMarin only collects personally identifiable data (including, but not necessarily limited to, your name, address, telephone number, and email address and relationship to the BioMarin product or program) when you voluntarily submit such information to BioMarin through one of our websites.

BioMarin maintains the personal information that you voluntarily submit in an electronic database. BioMarin may use this information as a means to contact you to obtain additional information, improve this site, or provide you with information that you have requested or additional information which BioMarin believes may be of interest to you. BioMarin may use this information within the company for performing marketing studies and analyses for internal use. Furthermore, BioMarin may share aggregated, non-personally identifiable statistical and other information about users to third parties for any purpose, including commercial purposes, but in such cases will not identify you or any other specific individual. Except as otherwise set forth in the Terms of Use of the website or this Privacy Notice, BioMarin will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent. However, in the event that disclosure of your information by BioMarin is required by law, BioMarin may disclose such information without obtaining your consent.

Any personally identifiable data collected on this Website may be used and communicated by BioMarin, or by a third party individual or company acting on behalf of BioMarin, for processing, communications (such as e-mailing and other mailings) and other purposes consistent with this Privacy Notice. For example, BioMarin and its agents and contractors may exchange information described in this Privacy Notice with each other or with you over the Internet or intranet systems for the purposes of carrying out the activities and services described above. Agents and contractors of BioMarin who have access to personally identifiable information are required to protect this information in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Notice by, for example, not using the information for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for BioMarin.

While BioMarin makes every reasonable effort to protect the information collected through its websites, please be aware that there is always some risk involved when submitting data over the Internet. We cannot guarantee that our Website is 100% safe from illegal tampering or "hacking." Any data transmitted over the Internet may be at risk; however, once it is received at BioMarin and entered into the BioMarin database, any data you have submitted has the same protection that BioMarin extends to its own confidential information.

As a convenience to our visitors, our sites currently contain links to a number of other (non-BioMarin) sites that we believe may offer useful information.

Cookies

Our website uses a technology called "non-persistent cookies," which is a small data file that a server gives to your browser when you access a website in order to let you access the pages you request and to track the pages visited. Using non-persistent cookies to track page visits helps us analyze our site usage more accurately. In cases in which non-persistent cookies are used, we will not collect your personally identifiable information except with your explicit permission.

If a portion of this Website requires a password, you are giving us explicit permission to use a "persistent cookie," which is a small data file that is generated when, as a registered user of this Website, you enter your assigned user ID and password and access the site. This file is stored on your computer, and enables your browser to access each page that is in the password-protected area.

Please note that linked non-BioMarin sites may also use cookies. BioMarin cannot control the use of cookies by these non-BioMarin sites. We also want you to know that when you link from this Website to another website, that site may have the ability to recognize that you have come from a BioMarin site. If you do not want any other websites to know that you have been on this Website, we recommend that you do not use the links provided in our site. If you have any questions about how third party sites use cookies, you should contact such third parties directly.
