Privacy Policy

Welcome
Welcome to www.appliedmedical.net. This site is owned by Applied Medical Technology, Inc. This Privacy Policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may provide via this site. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site. This site is intended for use by residents of the United States.

Your Consent
By using this site, you agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy. Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

About Children
This site is not intended for children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect information from site visitors in this age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to Web sites.

Active Information Collection
Like many Web sites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, feedback forms, and/or chat rooms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, and so on). Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order for you to benefit from the specified features (such as newsletter subscriptions, tips/pointers, order processing) or to participate in a particular activity (such as a promotion). You will be informed at each information collection point what information is required and what information is optional.

Passive Information Collection
As you navigate through this Web site, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as Internet Protocol addresses, cookies, Internet tags, and navigational data collection.

We use Internet Protocol (IP) addresses on this site. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet and is generally considered to be non-personally identifiable information, because in most cases an IP address is dynamic (changing each time you connect to the Internet), rather than static (unique to a particular user’s computer). We use your IP address to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to our site, and administer and improve the site.
A “cookie” is a bit of information that a Web site sends to your Web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences.

Session cookies are temporary bits of information that are erased once you exit your Web browser window or otherwise turn your computer off. Session cookies are used to improve navigation on Web sites and to collect aggregate statistical information. This site uses session cookies.

Persistent cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there unless you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer for a number of purposes, such as retrieving certain information you have previously provided (e.g., passwords), helping to determine what areas of the Web site visitors find most valuable, and customizing the Web site based on your preferences. This site uses persistent cookies.

“Internet tags” (also known as single-pixel GIFs, clear GIFs, invisible GIFs, and 1-by-1 GIFs) are smaller than cookies and tell the Web site server information such as the IP address and browser type related to the visitor’s computer. We do not use Internet tags at this site.

“Navigational data” (“log files,” “server logs,” and “clickstream” data) are used for system management, to improve the content of the site, market research purposes, and to communicate information to visitors. This site uses navigational data.

Use and Disclosure of Information
Except as otherwise stated, we may use your information to improve the content of our site, to customize the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our marketing and research purposes, and for the purposes specified in this Privacy Policy.

If you provide personally identifiable information to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable measures to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise.

We may disclose your personally identifiable information to other Applied Medical affiliates worldwide that agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In addition, we may disclose your personally identifiable information to third parties, located in the United States and/or any other country, but only

i. to contractors we use to support our business (e.g., fulfillment services, technical support, delivery services, and financial institutions), in which case we will require such third parties to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy;

ii. in connection with the sale, assignment, or other transfer of the business of this site to which the information relates, in which case we will require any such buyer to agree to treat it in accordance with this Privacy Policy; or

iii. where required by applicable laws, court orders, or government regulations. In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.

Access and Correction
To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.

Security
We take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit your information from your computer to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.

Links to Other Web Sites
This site may contain links or references to other Web sites. Please be aware that we do not control other Web sites and that, in any case, this Privacy Policy does not apply to those Web sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policy of every Web site you visit.

Other Terms
Your use of this site is subject to the Terms of Use.

ANY ADDITIONAL OR DIFFERENT TERMS, ADDITIONS OR EXCEPTIONS PROPOSED BY BUYER (WHETHER IN A PURCHASE ORDER, OTHER PRINTED FORM OR ELSEWHERE) ARE OBJECTED TO AND HEREBY REJECTED, UNLESS SUCH TERMS, OR EXCEPTIONS ARE APPROVED SPECIFICALLY BY SELLER IN WRITING. IN THE ABSENCE OF BUYER’S ACCEPTANCE HEREOF, SELLER’S COMMENCEMENT OF PERFORMANCE OR SELLER’S ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF A PURCHASE ORDER SHALL BE FOR BUYER’S CONVENIENCE ONLY AND SHALL NOT BE CONSTRUED AS SELLER’S ACCEPTANCE OF ANY OF DIFFERENT OR ADDITIONAL TERMS CONTAINED IN A PURCHASE ORDER. IN ADDITION, BUYER’S ACCEPTANCE OF ANY PRODUCTS SHALL BE DEEMED TO BE AN ACCEPTANCE OF ALL OF THESE TERMS AND CONDITIONS OF SALE.
  2. Changes. Orders pursuant to these terms and conditions may only be changed in a written agreement, signed by both parties, which sets forth the specific changes to be made and the effect, if any, that such changes may have on the price or time of delivery.
  3. Delivery, Claims, Delays. All sales are FOB Seller’s shipping point, unless otherwise noted. Buyer shall pay shipping and freight costs, which shall be added to the invoice. Title to goods and risk of loss shall pass to Buyer upon delivery of goods to carrier. Choice of carrier and shipping method shall be at Seller’s election. Upon receipt of any goods shipped hereunder, Buyer shall inspect the goods and notify Seller in writing within 5 days after the goods have been received by Buyer of any claims for shortages, defects or damage and shall hold the defective or damaged goods for Seller’s written instructions concerning disposition. If Buyer fails to notify Seller within 5 days after the goods have been received by Buyer, such goods shall conclusively be deemed to conform to the terms and conditions hereof and to have been irrevocably accepted by Buyer. Seller shall not be liable for any loss, damage or penalty as a result of any delay in or failure to manufacture, deliver or otherwise perform hereunder due to any cause beyond Seller’s reasonable control, including without limitation, act of Buyer, embargo or other governmental act, regulation or request affecting the conduct of Seller’s business, fire, explosion, accident, theft, vandalism, riot, acts of war, acts of labor (such as strikes or labor difficulties), lightning, floods, windstorm or acts of God, delay in transportation, routine shutdown of Seller’s manufacturing facilities, equipment failure, shortage of raw materials or inability to obtain labor, fuel, materials, supplies or power at current prices.

  5. Pricing and Payment.All pricing is in U.S. Dollars and is determined by negotiation between the parties for a specific order and is not dependent on pricing currently offered to other buyers, or offered in the past to other buyers. Seller specifically rejects most favored company pricing and makes no warranties or representations regarding pricing to Buyer, in comparison to others. Terms of sale are net thirty (30) days from the date of invoice, unless otherwise stated. Unpaid balances over thirty (30) days will be subject to a 1.5% monthly service charge. Buyer’s obligations to pay Seller are absolute and are not subject to any factor, counterclaim, deduction, withholding, holdback, set-off or any other condition for any reason. Buyer specifically waives any right for any reason to withhold or set-off payments it owes to Seller hereunder, whether available at law, in equity or otherwise. If the financial condition of Buyer results in the insecurity of Seller, Seller in its sole discretion, may without notice to Buyer, delay or postpone deliveries of products, change the terms of payment to payment in full or in part in advance of shipment. In the event of default by Buyer in the payment of any purchase price for goods, Seller, at its sole discretion, without prejudice to any other lawful remedy, may defer delivery, cancel any contract for the sale of goods, or sell any undelivered products on hand for the account of Buyer and apply such proceeds as a credit, without set-off or deduction of any kind, against the contract purchase price. Buyer agrees to pay the balance then due to Seller on demand. Buyer agrees to pay all costs, including, but not limited to, reasonable attorney, accounting fees and other expenses of collection resulting from any default by Buyer in any of the terms hereof.
  6. Taxes and Other Charges. Any use tax, sales tax, excise tax, duty, custom, inspection or testing fee, or any other tax, fee or charge of any nature whatsoever imposed by any governmental authority, on or measured by the transaction between Seller and Buyer, except for taxes of Seller’s income, shall be paid by Buyer in addition to the prices quoted or invoiced. In the event Seller is required to pay any such tax, fee or charge, Buyer shall reimburse Seller therefor; or Buyer shall provide Seller at the time the order is submitted an exemption certificate or other document acceptable to the authority imposing the tax, fee or charge.
