Biovica International AB, together with its affiliates and subsidiaries, including, but limited to, Biovica Inc. (collectively, “Biovica,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) offers  this website and other websites that now exist or may be created in the future (a “Website” or the “Websites”), including their content and site functionality, and related media and services that are or may become available through (the “Websites”) to you, the user, subject to and conditioned on your acceptance of this Agreement.

By using the Websites, you agree that you have read, understand, and are bound by this Agreement. We may, in our sole discretion, revise the Agreement from time to time by updating the Agreement, with the new terms taking effect on the date of posting. You should review the Agreement every time you use the Websites, as it is binding on you. IF YOU DO NOT INTEND TO ACCEPT THIS AGREEMENT, PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS SERVICE.

This policy applies to the information you provide to Biovica through the Websites. This policy does not apply to information collected by third parties linked in any way to the Websites.

Information We Collect

Personal and Non-Personal Information

“Personal Information” is information that can be used to identify you by itself or when it is combined with other information, such as a name, address, cellphone number, account information, financial insurance, credit card information, or e-mail address.

We may collect Personal Information from you in a variety of ways, including through a registration form, by you filling in forms or submitting information on the Websites, or by corresponding with us by phone, email, or otherwise. In order to use certain aspects of the Websites, we may require you to complete a registration form, which may require you to provide certain Personal Information and create a username and password. Upon submitting a registration form, additional information may be automatically generated such as preferences you indicate.

We may also provide you with the opportunity to provide additional information and/or suggestions to us. In connection with any such submissions, you agree to give truthful information (such as name and email address).

It is your choice whether to provide personal information to Biovica. Some information must be provided in order to participate in certain services, features, programs or activities, so the decision not to provide information might limit or eliminate certain functions of the Websites or the ability to participate.

Our primary purpose in collecting Personal Information is to provide you with a smooth, efficient, and customized experience using the Websites, and to develop our products and services to meet your needs or to otherwise conduct our business as described in the Terms and Conditions.

Do not provide personal information about others unless you are authorized or required to do so by applicable law or contract. Before supplying personal information about others, you and the person about whom you supply the information must review and consent to the Agreement. By submitting any personal information about others, you represent and warrant that you are authorized to do so and that you have made the Agreement available to the person about whom you supply the information. If applicable law allows you to supply the information without doing the foregoing, you represent and warrant that you have abided by that law and that it allows us to receive and disclose the information under this Privacy Policy without any further action on our part. You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Biovica, its affiliates, parents, subsidiaries, officers, directors, employees and agents, sponsors and supporting artists, licensors, suppliers, and associates for any failure by you to comply with this paragraph.

We also collect and process Non-Personal Information that cannot identify you either alone or in combination with other information, such as your general location and use of our products, features, and services that is automatically generated when you use the Websites.


When you use the Websites, we or our third-party vendors may store “cookies” and other tracking mechanisms on your computer in order to facilitate and customize your use of the Websites. Cookies are a technology that installs a small amount of information on the computer’s hard drive (if your web browser permits) that can later be retrieved to identify you to us. Certain pages of the Websites and/or html email correspondence may use session cookies, persistent cookies, or web beacons to anonymously track unique visitors, save website preferences and to allow us to recognize visits from the same computer and browser.

There are several types of cookies. Cookies that are essential for the operation of the Websites (“Essential Cookies”) enable services you have specifically asked for.  These cookies remain on your device only until you close your browser after visiting the Websites. Some cookies are used to collect anonymous information on the pages visited (“Performance Cookies”). For example, we might use Performance Cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective, and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages.  These cookies remain on your device only until you close your browser after visiting the Websites. Some cookies remember choices you make to improve your experience (“Functionality Cookies”).  These Functionality Cookies remain on your device for an extended period of time.  When you revisit the Websites, we recognize Functionality Cookies and remember your preferences or can automatically log you on to the Website.  Personal Information on our system may be associated with Functionality Cookies but the cookies themselves do not contain any of your Personal Information.

In general, the cookies on the Websites make your use of the Websites easier, make the Websites run more smoothly and help us to maintain the Websites securely. You are always free to decline our cookies if your browser permits, but some parts of the Websites may not work properly in that case.

Please be advised that our third-party vendors, including Google Analytics, may use cookies or similar technologies on the Websites.  By agreeing to use the Websites, you are expressly agreeing to allow Google Analytics and other third-party vendors to use cookies and/or similar technologies to collect information about you as described in their respective policies.
