I. Information We Collect
We collect the following categories of information regarding you and your visit to Our Web Site. Only some of these categories of information identify you directly, but each category offers some information about your interests and activities that could be used to make inferences about you and if combined with other information might be used to identify you.
Information That You Voluntarily Provide:
Site Registration. When you register to use Our Site or its features or services or to receive emails or other communication from Us, We collect certain information that directly identifies you (“Personal Information”). The type of Personal Information We collect from you may include your name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone number, and health information.
Interactive Services. We also collect the Personal Information that you provide when you choose to participate in interactive services that may be available on Our Site such as questionnaires, surveys and submissions related to employment opportunities.
Correspondence with Regeneron. We also collect any Personal Information you send to Us by e-mail. You may use Our Site to ask questions or report problems regarding Our investigational products. If you communicate with or request information from Us by e-mail, we will have your e-mail address as well as whatever health-related and/or personal facts you chose to include in your e-mail. If you are reporting a product experience involving one of our investigational products, We may ask you for specific facts, including patient initials, age, and gender, and prescribing physician. Federal regulations require Us to collect patient-identifiable information in order to file reports with the Federal Food and Drug Administration regarding the safety of Our investigational products. If you are a medical professional and disclose Personal Information about a patient through the Site, you and you alone bear the sole obligation and responsibility of obtaining any patient consents and/or authorization for such disclosure that may be required under federal or state law.

In that case, the only information We collect will be the log information Our servers automatically record and that your browser sends whenever you visit a Web site. This log information may include your Web request, Internet Protocol address, browser type, browser language, and the date and time of your request. We and our service providers may collect this information using “cookies,” which are small text files that the Site saves on your computer using your web browser and accesses when you return, or similar technologies.
IP Address. We record the Internet Protocol (IP) address of your computer when you visit Our Site. We retain the IP address of your computer and may combine it with Personal Information we collect from you.

Disclosure for Legal or Safety Reasons. We may release Personal Information to third parties: (1) to comply with valid legal requirements such as a law, regulation, search warrant, subpoena or court order; or (2) in special cases, such as a physical threat to you, others or homeland security, in which We believe it is reasonably necessary to investigate or prevent harm, fraud, abuse, or illegal conduct. In the event that We are legally compelled to disclose your Personal Information to a third party, We will notify you unless we believe that doing so would violate the law or court order or pose a threat or danger. We will also take measures to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of any Personal Information that they may receive. We also reserve the right to cooperate with law enforcement authorities in disclosing information for the purpose of investigating and prosecuting users who violate Our rules or engage in behavior that is illegal or harmful to other web sites.
Disclosure to Operations and Maintenance Contractors. Third parties that We contract with to maintain or service the Site or Our business sometimes have access to your Personal Information in the course of providing products or services to Us. These contractors include vendors and suppliers that provide Us with technology, services, and/or content related to better operation and maintenance of Our Web Site, vendors such as Our attorneys and auditors, and vendors who analyze data collected on Our Site ("Contractors"). Unless you have opted out of receiving e-mails and newsletters from the Site, these Contractors also may have access to your e-mail address to send information or newsletters to you on Our behalf or to send e-mails to you for purposes such as conducting market research on Our behalf. Access to your Personal Information by these Contractors is limited to the information reasonably necessary in order for the Contractor to perform its limited function for Us.
