Such information may include your name, mailing address, and e-mail address; it may also include the e-mail addresses of those to whom you forward HSUS electronic content, as well as any other information collected in the forms.
BioMed21 also collects certain other information that cannot identify you personally when you visit our web site. This information includes your IP address and your domain name. BioMed21 logs these IP addresses and domain names and aggregates them for system administration and to monitor the use of our site. We use the aggregated information to measure the number of visits to our site, the average time spent on our site, the number of pages viewed, and various other site statistics.

BioMed21 uses “cookies” in order to make the results available for your on-site searches. Cookies are not used for any other reason on this site. A cookie is a small file that is sent out by a Web site, accepted by the user’s browser, and placed on the user’s hard drive. You can always set your browser to warn of cookies being placed and then chose which cookies you want to accept.

How We Use Information Collected about You
We may use the information you voluntarily provide to contact you regarding new developments in the field of toxicity testing, to keep you updated regarding changes to BioMed21, or to solicit feedback. We may also send such information to the people whose e-mail addresses you provide when forwarding HSUS electronic content. When we do so, our sole intent is to enlarge our family of informed stakeholders. Every recipient of our electronic communications can quickly and easily “opt out” of future BioMed21 communications by following the instructions on any electronic communication we send.
