Privacy Policy

Privacy Policy

Ichor Life Sciences, Inc. (the “Site”, “we” or “ICHOR”) is strongly committed to protecting the privacy of its website users (USERS). The majority of the website can be navigated without providing personal information. At times, though, additional information about USERS is needed to provide the information or services USERS request. To protect USERS’ privacy, this notice explains ICHOR’s online information practices and the options USERS can select about what information is collected and used.

This Privacy Policy describes how ICHOR collects, uses, and discloses your Personal Information when you visit or make a purchase from the Site.

Collecting Personal Information 

ICHOR may collect the following types of personally identifiable information through this website: name, title, contact details including e-mail address, and telephone numbers. ICHOR may collect additional information when USERS register to access services available through the website.

On some pages, USERS may opt to provide information about themselves. For example, USERS are interested in (a) an employment opportunity at ICHOR; or (b) having ICHOR participate at an event. The information requested from USERS will be based on the area of interest.

On occasion, ICHOR may request that USERS voluntarily participate in a survey or poll such as feedback on website content or services. Responses will be anonymous unless USERS opt in to being contacted by email to provide further information regarding the survey.

In order to improve the design and content of the website and to enable ICHOR to better personalize USERS’ experiences, ICHOR may collect certain technical information about USERS, such as the IP address, the type of browser or operating system USERS are using, or the domain name of the USER’s Internet service provider.

When you visit the Site, we collect certain information about your device, your interaction with the Site, and information necessary to process your purchases. We may also collect additional information if you contact us for customer support. In this Privacy Policy, we refer to any information that can uniquely identify an individual (including the information below) as “Personal Information”. See the list below for more information about what Personal Information we collect and why.
