Sirona Biochem’s website may deposit certain bits of information called “cookies” in a visitor’s computer. Generally, a cookie assigns a unique number to the visitor that has no meaning outside the assigning site. Cookies can tell us how and when pages in a website are visited and by how many people. This technology does not collect an individual visitor’s identifying information; rather, the information collected is in an aggregate, non-identifiable form. The purpose of this technology and the information it provides is to help us improve our website, products and services. Most web browsers allow the user to deny or accept the cookie feature. We may entrust third parties with the above-described information on our behalf.

  • To other persons as permitted or required by applicable law or regulation; and
  • To law enforcement personnel and other agencies, or as part of a legal process, in order to protect our property or in furtherance of an investigation regarding a breach of rules and policies governing this website, unauthorized access to or use of this website or any other illegal activities.

Any access to such Personal Information will be limited to the purpose for which such information was provided to our affiliate, subsidiary or Service Provider.
