Privacy Statement (Seattle)
1. Why we gather information
We at Nexelis-Seattle strive to make a difference and improve the life of millions of people affected by illnesses around the world. We use information about our visitors to improve our services and gather vital information that could help us improve our websites. We take your privacy seriously, and we only collect and keep information as long as we need it for a specific task. We will never transfer or sell personally identifiable information about our visitors to a third party unless we explicitly state so at the time of collection or ask for your permission before doing so.
2. Two types of information
Some information we ask you for directly, but other information is collected automatically. All information collected automatically is stored in an aggregate form and cannot be used to identify you as a specific individual. To provide additional functionality on our websites, answer your inquiries, and improve our services, we occasionally ask you to provide us with information that can at times be personally identifiable and sensitive. As a result, information gathered by us can be divided into two main categories: personally identifiable and sensitive information, and aggregated visitor statistics. We do not link aggregated visitor statistics with personally identifiable and sensitive information.
Aggregated visitor statistics
When you visit our websites, we automatically collect general information about your computer and its location. This information cannot be used to identify you as an individual. This information is only used in aggregate form to tell us where our visitors come from, what they look at, and where they spend the most time. This allows us to improve our websites to create a better experience for you.
Personally identifiable information
At times, we need to collect more personal information about you. Our website might require you to register in order to log in, in which case you will be required to provide personal information about yourself to us. We might also collect your name and email address in order to respond to a question you may pose to us. Typically, the information we ask for includes: contact details, such as your name, e-mail, postal address, company affiliation, title and contact phone number.
We will not gather any personally identifiable information from you unless you specifically agree to provide it to us. We will only gather and store personally identifiable information for the purpose stated during the gathering process. When we finish processing your information for the stated purpose, we will erase and destroy it to ensure your privacy. There is always a lot of information that a company can ask you for, but Nexelis-Seattle will only ask for information where there is a clear and necessary need for that information, which is clearly explained to you. You will always have a choice as to what information you provide. Also, you can write to us and ask for a summary of information we have that relates to you or, if the site does not provide the opportunity for you to directly edit information you provided, contact us to have information deleted or modified.
3. How we gather information
There are two main ways in which we gather information.
As with most other web sites, our servers keep logs over which files were downloaded, and which computers downloaded those files. Information gathered by our servers can be analyzed and used to create aggregate visitor statistics which we use for evaluating and improving our website.
4. Disclosure to third parties
5. Regulation and complaints
The organization is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). In compliance with the Privacy Shield Principles, Nexelis commits to resolve complaints about our collection or use of your personal information. EU and Swiss individuals with inquiries or complaints regarding our Privacy Shield policy should first contact Nexelis at:
Nexelis, Att. Data Protection Officer
645 Elliott Ave W, Suite 300
Seattle, WA 98119
Nexelis has further committed to refer unresolved Privacy Shield complaints to an alternative dispute resolution provider (see below).

Under certain conditions, an individual may invoke binding arbitration for complaints regarding Privacy Shield compliance which have not been resolved by any of the other Privacy Shield mechanisms. Refer to the following: https://www.privacyshield.gov/article?id=ANNEX-I-introduction
