PERSONAL INFORMATION COLLECTED AND PROCESSED
Lilly will collect various information about you as follows:
When you use this website, we collect information from the Cookies that are placed on your computer web browser. This information helps us provide additional functionality to the website and helps us analyse site usage more accurately. Some cookies are required for this website to function correctly, and may have already been set. Other cookies (Web Analytics Cookies and others set out below) require your consent before we can place them on your device. By giving your consent, you agree to us storing these cookies on your device for the duration stated below.
We use the following types of cookies on this website:
Web Analytics Cookies
If you give your consent, the website sets a cookie on your device in order to aid the accuracy of a statistical program. A profile can be built up of a user’s surfing habits through the use of this cookie, by using a randomly generated identifier that we can link to and make a part of Your Information. We use these profiles to monitor your usage of our websites and other communications channels, to establish common surfing patterns of our users, such as which links have been clicked or documents accessed, which helps us to maintain and enhance the service we provide. This cookie will remain on your device for about two years, even after you leave our site, unless you delete them.
As you surf around our website, there are often times when we need to remember technical information about you as you surf from page to page. We use this technical information in a multitude of ways to enhance your user experience, for example to remember your occupation, to display the most appropriate content for you. These session cookies contain no personally identifiable information and only last until you end your session and leave our website.
Persistent or Login Session Cookie
When you log into a restricted area, we may set a cookie on your PC, to remember your login details and this cookie is linked to and becomes a part of Your Information. This can be used for your convenience so that on subsequent visits, you aren't required to provide the entire log in information again. This cookie may remain on your device indefinitely, even after you leave our site.
Identifiable Information Submitted by you
When you use Lilly Services, websites or mobile applications, we will collect personal information from you that can identify you, such as your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, IP address (if static), professional details and other similar information when it is voluntarily submitted to us, which can be combined with the cookie information above to create "Your Information." You may be submitting Your Information to us directly through Lilly workforce personnel, through a website or mobile app registration page, through another function or data collection form, or simply providing information to contact us or leave a comment. You may always refuse to provide information that we request as part of Your Information (save in respect of a static IP address), but this may lead to our inability to provide you with certain information, products or services.
Web Server logs and Web Analytics
Like the vast majority of internet websites, we automatically gather web server log information (as described within this paragraph) from you when you visit one of our websites via the computer that hosts our website (called a "webserver"). The web server automatically recognises some non-personal information (except as specified below in the IP Address Section), such as your IP address, the date and time you visited our site, the pages you visited on our site, the length of time you spent on a page, the website you came from, the type of browser you are using (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome), the type of operating system you are using (e.g. Windows 7), and the domain name and address of your Internet service provider (e.g. BT). If our site is using cookies (which is disclosed above), the web server will also collect this information.
We often review the web server log information to see what website pages are being visited to get a better understanding of how the site is being used by our visitors. This is popularly known as Web Analytics and allows us to maintain and enhance our service. In addition, in cases of system abuse, we may use this information in conjunction with your Internet Service Provider and/or local authorities to trace the source of any such abuse. In order to produce Web Analytics, this website uses IP addresses and Cookies as described in other sections of this Policy.
A Web Beacon is a graphic on a webpage or in an email designed to track pages viewed or messages opened. Our websites may use Web Beacons (sometimes called single-pixel GIFS) to collect web server log information.
This website uses Internet Protocol (IP) addresses. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet (it is a "dynamic" address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, it is possible that your IP address that we collect, or even perhaps a cookie we use, may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because with some broadband connections your IP address doesn't change (it is "static") and could be associated with your personal computer.
USES AND DISCLOSURES
We will use Your Information for our general business, sales and marketing purposes, including responding to requests you may make to us and from time to time, to send you items and materials you may order, to better understand your needs and how we can improve our websites, products and services, to administer an account you may create, to develop our business relationship with you, and for everyday business purposes such as for our general sales, marketing, product and services development activities, including communicating with you (more information about promotional communications is set forth below).
In order to understand more about our business activities and our markets, we may also enhance or merge Your Information with information about you obtained from third parties for the same purposes. In these circumstances we may create or gain access to larger datasets that enable us to use data analytics across large amounts of data from a variety of sources, sometimes called big data analytics.
We may process Your Information to create a profile of certain of your behaviours relating to your professional activities and preferences. Lilly may also use your Information in combination with other legitimate data sources and publically available information for the same purpose (‘Professional Profile’). We may use your Professional Profile for our general business and marketing purposes as well as to develop communications to you with information about our products and services. In addition we may use your Professional Profile to analyse, predict your preferences, provide offers, and share information with you targeted to your Professional Profile, and profiles of persons with similar interests, that may enhance your professional interactions with Lilly, improve or modify our relationship with you in a way that we believe you may have interest in based on your Professional Profile. Lilly does this to better understand your needs and to better tailor its service to you. We may also use data about your activities that has been de-identified and aggregated with other information for our marketing and business purposes.
IP addresses are used as part of the web server log information as stated above. We use your IP address to report on use and to help improve the website and mobile applications, as stated in the Web Server Logs and Web Analytics Section. We also may use your IP address (if static) to personalize content provided on the website and mobile applications. We retain IP addresses, and if static IP Addresses, we retain them together with Your Information.
We will store Your Information only to the extent and for so long as is necessary in accordance with your consent for the uses stated above, the functioning of the site or the service offered on the website or mobile application.
Lilly reserves the right to share Your Information to respond to duly authorised information requests of governmental authorities or where required by law. This includes providing information for the purposes of fraud detection and protection against terrorism. In exceptionally rare circumstances where national, state or company security is at issue, Lilly reserves the right to share our entire database of visitors and customers with appropriate governmental authorities.

Lilly does not control any of the content from social media plugins.
