What Information Do We Collect?
Personal information may be collected in a number of ways when you visit our Site. Any time you access the Site, we may collect certain information you voluntarily provide to us, including personal travel information. For example, we may collect information, such as your name, e-mail address, and other contact and demographic information. We may collect this and other information when you use a service, leave comments, participate in promotions or contact us for any reason. We may supplement this information with information collected from other companies. Such information is collected, stored and used in accordance with applicable laws and in a manner appropriate to fulfill the nature of your request.
We may also collect non-personal "aggregate" information, which is data we collect about your use of the Site or about a group or category of products, services or users, from which individual identities or other personal information has been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and our users' needs so that we can better consider new features or otherwise tailor our Site. This policy in no way restricts or limits our collection and use of aggregate information.
How We Personalize This Site.
To help make this website more responsive to your needs, we may also automatically collect certain information through the use of “cookies.” Cookies are small data files that are stored on a user's hard drive and a standard feature of browser software, which helps us to tailor the Site to your needs, to deliver a better, more personalized service, and to remember certain preferences, history and choices you’ve made, so you don’t have to re-enter them. Such information (including your type of request and other information) is collected, stored and used in accordance with applicable laws and in a manner appropriate to fulfill the nature of your request.
In cases where you may be using or accessing one of our services that require you to establish and enter a user name and password, the user name and password may be temporarily stored in a cookie. Data stored in the cookie will allow you to automatically log back on without re-entering your information during the same session. AmerisourceBergen Drug Company will only use this information to identify and access your account to provide the requested services or information. The cookies we use don’t directly identify visitors to, or users of, the Site as particular persons. Rather, they contain information sufficient to simplify and improve a visitor’s or user’s experience on the Site.
How We Use Information.
In general, we use personal information we collect to process your requests or transactions, to provide you with information or services you request, to inform you about other information, events, promotions, products or services we think will be of interest to you, to facilitate your use of, and our administration and operation of, the Site and services, and for the purpose for which the information was provided.
We may share personal information with our affiliates, service providers and vendors in order for them to provide services for us; such information is shared and protected in accordance with applicable law. For example, when you use certain functions on this Site you may notice that the website collecting or processing the information may be other than an AmerisourceBergen Drug Company website. If you send us any email, we will retain such email and your email address for response. We may receive a confirmation when you open any e-mail that we send to you, if your computer supports such capabilities.
We may also transfer your data or permit selected third parties use of your data so they may provide you with information about products and services that may be of interest to you, and both we and they may contact you about these by mail, telephone or email. These third parties will usually be exhibitors, sponsors or participants at our trade show, particularly those whose products and services might align with your interests. When we share your personal data with these third parties, they will be responsible for protecting your data once they receive it. They will also be responsible to you for the manner in which your data is subsequently processed and the ways in which they market to you.
In addition, we may disclose personal information in the good faith belief that we are lawfully authorized or required to do so, or that doing so is reasonably necessary or appropriate to comply with the law or with a valid legal process, such as a subpoena, court order or search warrant, or to protect the rights, property or safety of AmerisourceBergen Drug Company, our users, our employees or the public, including without limitation to protect us or our users from fraudulent, abusive, inappropriate or unlawful use of our Site. We also reserve the right to report to law enforcement and regulatory agencies activities that we in good faith believe to be illegal. Information about our users, including personal information, may also be disclosed or transferred as part of, or during negotiations of, any merger, sale of company assets, financing or acquisition, an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership or in any other situation where personal information may be transferred as one of the business assets of AmerisourceBergen Drug Company.
You have the right to ask us not to process your personal data for marketing purposes. As this policy explains, in the absence of a written request from you (including an email request) that we do not use your personal data for that purpose, we intend to market to you and share your data with our trade show exhibitors, sponsors and participants interested in marketing to you. If you wish to exercise your opt out from sharing your personal data for these purposes please ensure that you check certain boxes on the forms which we use to collect your information.
Alternatively please contact us in writing (including by email) as provided below.

If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and we do not accept any responsibility or liability for those policies. Please check those policies before you submit any personal data to those websites.
You may email or write us to remove your personal information at any time, but the removal will be effective only in the case of future communications, and only in the case of communications directly from us, and not communications from third parties contacted by you through us. If your details have already been shared with third parties such as exhibitors, you will have to contact them directly to ask them to stop sending you their communications.
You may also be able to stop delivery of future email communications from us by following instructions to unsubscribe in emails we send to you.
