Data we Collect and How we Use it

Astellas collects personally identifiable information from the website visitors only when it is voluntarily provided. We may use this information to respond to an email or other inquiry or request, to help improve our web site and our services, or to send updates or notices about our company and the products we offer that we think may be of interest to you.

Astellas may also combine the personally identifiable information you provide with other generally or publicly available information to help us identify visitors' preferences or interest. We may use the information to improve the content of our web site or our products and services.

Non-Personally Identifiable Information

The Astellas web server captures the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of each connection to our site and the specific web pages visited during that connection. 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 it changes each time you connect to the internet. IP addresses may be used to diagnose problems with our server, report aggregate information, determine the fastest route for your computer to use in connecting to the site, and administer and improve the site. Although the IP address and related information collected is stored in the server log files, no individual is authorized to access those files for any purpose other than system maintenance. We may also use this information to help improve our web site and our services by better understanding our audience. Astellas may also collect non-personally identifiable information in aggregate form to track data such as the total number of visitors to each page of our web sites, and the domain names of our visitors Internet service providers. We may use this information, which remains in aggregate form, to understand how our visitors use our web sites so that we may make them better.
