Vocera Online Privacy Statement
Personal information means any information that may be used to identify an individual (such as a first and last name, email address, a physical address, other contact information, or a credit card number).
When you browse our website, you do so anonymously, unless you previously have registered with our website and have indicated that you wish Vocera to remember your login and password for your future visits to our website. We don't automatically collect personal information from users of our website. We do log your IP address (the Internet address of your computer) to give us an idea of which parts of our website are being visited and how much time visitors spend there. But we do not link your IP address to any personal information unless you have logged in to our website. Like many other commercial websites, the Vocera website may use a standard technology called "cookies" (which are small amounts of data sent from a web server to your browser that are stored on your computer’s hard drive) to collect information about how you use the website. Generally, you can set your browser not to accept cookies or to notify you if you are sent a cookie, giving you the opportunity to choose whether or not to accept the cookie. Please note that if you do set your browser not to accept cookies, certain areas of our website may not function properly.
Vocera collects personal information through our website when you register for a Vocera account, when you use certain Vocera products or services, when you register to attend a seminar or participate in an online survey, when you ask to be included in an email or other mailing list, when you submit an entry for a sweepstakes or other promotion, or when you submit your personal information to Vocera for any other reason (e.g., when you submit a credit card number or shipping address when you make a purchase through our website).
Access to certain Vocera web pages require a login and a password. The use of those web pages, and the information or programs downloadable from those web pages, may be governed by a written agreement between your employer and Vocera. Unless you request deletion of your personal information as specified below, your personal information may be retained by Vocera to verify compliance with that agreement, log software licenses granted, track software downloaded from those pages, or track usage of other applications available on those pages.
How We Use Information Collected
Vocera uses your personal information for several purposes: to fulfill your requests for information on certain products and services, to fulfill your orders for products or services you have purchased, to personalize your experience on our website, to keep you up to date on the latest product announcements, software updates, special offers or other information we think you'd like to hear about either from us or from our business partners, and to better understand your needs and provide you with better services. We may also use your information to send you, or to have our business partners send you, direct marketing information or contact you for market research.
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Except as described in this section, Vocera will not transfer your personal information to third parties without your consent.
We may share aggregated personal information with third parties. We will not share any aggregated data, however, in a manner that would enable the recipient to personally identify you.
Your Ability to Review and Delete Your Account and Information
If you are a registered user, you can email to request your personal information be deleted from our database. Please note that any personal information that we have copied may remain in back-up storage for some period of time after your request, and that if you delete certain personal information you may not be able to order services in the future without re-submitting such information. Also, please note that we will maintain personal information in our database whenever we are required to do so by law.
Your Vocera account information is password-protected for your privacy and security. Vocera safeguards the security of the data you send us with physical, electronic, and managerial procedures. In certain areas of our websites, Vocera uses industry-standard SSL-encryption to enhance the security of data transmissions. While we strive to protect your personal information, we cannot ensure the security of the information you transmit to us, and so we urge you to take every precaution to protect your personal data when you are on the Internet. Change your passwords often, use a combination of letters and numbers, and make sure you use a secure browser.
Children and Privacy
Our website does not target and is not intended to attract children under the age of 13. Vocera does not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13 or send them requests for personal information.
There may be areas of our website (e.g., message boards, discussion rooms, and other online forums) in which you are able to post information that will be available to all other users of the website. By choosing to use these areas, you understand and agree that anyone may access, use, and disclose any information that you post to those areas.
