We Value Your Privacy
ANGITA Pharma Inc. (“ANGITA”) recognizes that your privacy is very important to you and is committed to maintaining the accuracy, confidentiality, and security of your “Personal Information”.
“Personal Information” is any information that is identifiable with you, as an individual. This information may include but is not limited to your name, contact information, mailing address, date of birth, medical information (such as your date of surgery), type of surgery, type and size of products, current and previous product usage information, health care provider information (including your applicable account information with such health care providers), and ANGITA usernames and passwords, and any information provided by you about your use of our website and products. Personal Information, however, does not include your name, business title or business address and business telephone number in your capacity as an employee of an organization.
Personal Information will only be collected and retained for legitimate purposes. It will be necessary to collect and use Personal Information about our customers when they view our website info.angitapharma.ca (the “Website”) or when providing our services.
We will not share your Personal Information with third parties except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Statement.
Collection and Use of Personal Information
The collection, use, and/or disclosure of Personal Information in the business context is essential to the conduct of many of ANGITA’s business functions. ANGITA collects and uses Personal Information in a lawful manner and only when it is reasonably necessary to do so for the provision of requested services, products, or information or as may be required or permitted by applicable laws. This information is generally provided voluntarily by an Individual in purchasing our products, applying for our services, viewing or sharing information on the Website. For example, ANGITA may collect Personal Information for the purposes of requests for product information, clinical trials, registration for ANGITA programs, education, employment, disease management, decision support systems, customer service support, marketing or ANGITA surveys.
Whenever ANGITA requests Personal Information, we will explain the purposes for which that Personal Information is required. The collected Personal Information will be used only for the stated purpose, a requisite ancillary purpose, or for such other purposes to which the customer may later consent. Individuals should not provide ANGITA with any Personal Information that is not specifically requested.
Rights to Opt-In/Out
ANGITA may disclose, subject to applicable laws and regulations, Personal Information without an individual’s consent (opt-in) to agents which assist ANGITA with its business activities. Our agents include any third party that collects and/or uses Personal Information under the instructions of ANGITA, or to which ANGITA discloses Personal Information for use on ANGITA’s behalf. Such agents may include service providers that administer ANGITA’s e-mail subscriptions and requests for information or provide services in connection with employment applications. ANGITA requires such agents to keep Personal Information confidential and to use and/or disclose Personal Information only to perform functions for ANGITA and in accordance with ANGITA’s instructions and this Privacy Statement.
In accordance with applicable law, and as appropriate, ANGITA will offer individuals the opportunity to choose (opt-in/out) whether their Personal Information is to be (a) disclosed to a non-agent third party, or (b) used for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected, authorized and/or consented to by the individual. However, ANGITA may be prevented from providing certain services to individuals who do not consent to the use, access, or disclosure of their Personal Information.
If an individual is asked to provide sensitive Personal Information, such as economic or financial information, ANGITA will, in accordance with applicable law, give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively and explicitly authorize or consent (opt-in) to the disclosure of their sensitive Personal Information to a non-agent third party or the use of their sensitive Personal Information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected and/or authorized or consented to by the individual.

How We Use Your Personal Information
When an Individual registers for the Website, ANGITA collects and retains personal information such as the Individual’s name and contact information.
ANGITA may seek an Individual’s consent to use his/her contact information to provide newsletters, bulletins, or other similar communications.
ANGITA may also retain and use Personal Information voluntarily provided by an Individual to develop and improve its product services and offerings.
Disclosure of Personal Information
Access to Personal Information is limited to ANGITA employees on a “need-to-know” basis or where their duties reasonably require such information, agents with whom ANGITA contracts to carry out business activities for ANGITA, and, to the extent applicable, certain companies with which ANGITA may conduct joint programs. ANGITA trains its employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage Personal Information appropriately to protect its security.
We may need to disclose your Personal Information to our subsidiaries and affiliates, certain third-party agents, service providers, or professional advisors, in carrying out the requested services or as necessary for completing the otherwise permitted uses of Personal Information only to the extent that may be reasonably expected to deliver the services or improve the provision of the services. In such circumstances, ANGITA shall ensure that any such parties having access to your Personal Information have appropriate safeguards in place to reasonably ensure the protection of your Personal Information and shall be prohibited from using your Personal Information for any other purpose. Personal Information handled by any such parties is governed by this Privacy Statement and applicable privacy or data protection legislation.
In addition, ANGITA may send Personal Information outside of the country for the purposes set out above, including for process and storage by service providers in connection with such purposes. However, to the extent that any Personal Information is out of the country, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is held, and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of such other country, pursuant to the laws of such country.
ANGITA may disclose Personal Information if required to do so by law enforcement officials, regulatory bodies, or government agencies to comply with any legal requirements or legal processes. ANGITA may also disclose Personal Information to protect and defend our legal rights or against legal claims or in connection with an emergency that warrants use or disclosure of the information or to protect the personal safety of an individual, in other circumstances for public security or for other public interest purposes.
ANGITA may also be required to, subject to applicable law, use and/or disclose Personal Information, in connection with a contemplated or actual reorganization of its business, when seeking financing or in connection with an assignment, sale, or other transaction involving the disposal of all or part of its business or assets, for example, to allow third parties to conduct due diligence so as to determine whether a transaction should proceed and on completion of the transaction. In any assignment or sale, the assignee or purchaser may use and/or disclose Personal Information collected by ANGITA for substantially the same purposes and subject to the same safeguards, as described in this Privacy Statement.
No Third-Party Direct Marketing Use
ANGITA shall not sell or otherwise disclose Personal Information to third parties for their own direct marketing use, commercial, or other reasons, except as may be specifically required to comply with applicable laws, or upon providing clear notice to you and obtaining your explicit consent for your Personal Information to be shared in this manner or for any purpose other than those for which it was explicitly or implicitly given.
Integrity of Personal Information
ANGITA will use Personal Information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected and/or consented to by the individual. ANGITA will take reasonable steps to ensure that Personal Information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. ANGITA will only store Personal Information for as long as it is needed to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected and as permitted or required by law.
Security of Information and Retention
At all times, ANGITA employs reasonable physical organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect your Personal Information. Access is limited to authorized personnel who are appropriately trained to handle Personal Information. However, you acknowledge that the security of any data transmission over the Internet or data storage systems cannot be guaranteed.
ANGITA will not retain any Personal Information, except as may be required by any Federal or Provincial record keeping requirements, longer than is necessary to fulfill the purpose(s) for which the Personal Information was provided. Once your Personal Information is no longer required to fulfill the stated purpose or to comply with applicable laws, it will be either destroyed or converted into a form that prevents an Individual from being identified
