Information we collect
In General. You may visit this Website without providing us any personal information. However, we may collect and store any information you choose to submit through the Website. This includes personal information, such as your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, and financial account information. We also may collect personal information when you send us an email message or otherwise communicate with us regarding our products and services or request for information.
Automatic Information. When you visit this Website, we automatically collect and analyze certain information about your computer. This information may include your IP address, Web browser software (such as Internet Explorer), the webpages you visit, and the referring Website address.
Cookies and Similar Technologies. We may use “cookies” or other similar technologies when you visit this Website. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our Website. We use these technologies to facilitate access to this Website and to recognize you when you return to the Website. A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent to your browser and stored on your computer's hard drive. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies and this will enable you to decide if you want to accept it or not. InterMune may not permit you to access certain Web pages within its Website in the event your browser does not accept a cookie request.
Session based cookies are temporary bits of information that are used to improve navigation, block visitors from providing information where inappropriate (the Website "remembers" previous entries of age or country of origin that were outside the specified parameters and blocks subsequent changes), and collect aggregate statistical information on the Website. Session based cookies are not stored with any collected user-identifiable information.
This Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the Website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the Website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Information on Google Analytics can be found at: http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html
Some of our service providers employ a software technology called “clear gifs” (a.k.a. Web Beacons/Web Bugs), that help us better manage content on our Website by informing us as to what content is effective. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to our customers’ personally-identifiable information.
As is true of most Websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data.We use the information referenced above, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the Website, to track users’ movements around the Website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
