Our privacy policy is easy to find as it is located on our homepage and is linked to any part of a site where personal data are requested. At such data collection points, further explanation may be provided, where appropriate, as to the purposes for which the data will be used. This Policy, coupled with any supplementary explanation, will tell authorized users ("You") how we will treat any data about yourself that You voluntarily submit in connection with your use of our websites.


Intended Use of Personal Information
Most of our services do not require any form of registration, allowing You to visit our site without telling us who You are. However, in order to make some services and features and functions of the website available to You, Terumo BCT, Inc. may request certain information about You and your use of the website, including, but not limited to, your first and last name, the name of your organization, if any, your e-mail address, and You may also be requested to choose a password.
