Involuntarily-Collected, Non-Personally Identifiable Information.
Visitors to this site can access the home page and browse this site without disclosing personally identifiable information, such as name, address, email address, and/or phone number. However, we do automatically track information provided to us by your browser, including the web site you came from, the type of browser you use, the time and date of access, and other information that does not personally identify you. We also gather limited information about you that is automatically collected by our web server, such as your IP address and domain name. These types of automatically collected information form log files.
Voluntarily Submitted, Personally Identifiable Information
In addition, we may conduct research on users' demographics, interests, and behavior based upon information you provide during use of our site. We may combine your information with information collected from other individuals to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information that will not include personally identifiable information. We may use this aggregated information for our business purposes. We may also share this anonymous, aggregated information with third parties doing work for Trius.
Email that you send and personally identifiable information included in that email is stored on our mail servers. Trius uses physical, managerial and other technical measures to ensure we use your information consistently with this policy.
No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to us and you do so at your own risk. Once we receive your transmission, we make reasonable efforts to ensure security on our systems. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of any of our physical, technical or managerial safeguards.
If Trius learns of a security systems breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using this site or providing personally identifiable information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of this site. Trius may post a notice on our web site if a security breach occurs. If this happens, you will need a web browser enabling you to view the Trius.com web site. Trius may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
Once you have sent an email that includes personally identifiable information to Trius, we will store until deleted and maintain the personally identifiable information you have volunteered in accordance with our internal policies, so long as (1) you have not directed us to delete it, or (2) we are not required by law or court order to store the information for a longer period of time. Of course, you can always contact us via an email from this website in order to (1) remove the personally identifiable information that you have provided to us from our systems or (2) update the personally identifiable information that you have provided to us. We will comply with such requests for deletion of your personally identifiable information from our actively used databases as long as there is no law, regulation or court order that requires us to do otherwise or if in our sole judgment doing so would jeopardize Trius' rights or the rights of others.
Visitors should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove from servers each and every record of the information you have provided to Trius. The need to back up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of your personally identifiable information may exist in a non-erasable form or in form that will be difficult to completely erase. We will use reasonable efforts, upon receiving your request, to delete your personally identifiable information either stored in the databases that we actively use for research and daily business activities or stored in other readily searchable media. In addition, we will use reasonable efforts not to disclose your personally identifiable information stored in a non-erasable format after receiving your request for removal, except as required by law or court order.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. This site is not directed at children under the age of 13. If we learn that a child under 13 has provided personally identifiable information on this site without their parent or guardian's consent, we will delete such information from our active databases in accordance with the policies described in the Storage of Personally Identifiable Information section above.
This site may contain links to third parties who may collect information directly from you. Each of the websites linked from this site have separate Privacy Policies and information collection practices, independent of Trius, and Trius has no responsibility or liability for these independent policies or actions and is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such websites, nor does Trius make any warranties or representations about the contents, products or services offered on such websites or the security of any information you provide to them.

Information that we collect may be stored and processed in the United States or in another country in which we, our agents, or our affiliated businesses maintain operations. By using our products, services, and this site, you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country.
In the event that Trius is acquired by or merged with a third party, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to sell or otherwise transfer the information we have collected as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control. In the unlikely event of our bankruptcy, insolvency, reorganization, receivership, or assignment for the benefit of creditors, or the application of laws or equitable principles affecting creditors' rights generally, we may not be able to control how your personally identifiable information is treated, transferred, or used. Therefore, you should know that in such event, your personally identifiable information may be treated like any other Trius asset, and sold, transferred or shared with third parties, or used in ways not contemplated or permitted hereunder, without notice to you or your consent.
