 Anatech Confidentiality Policy

Anatech sincerely believes in the protection of any information that you share with us, which may be described as personal. We believe that it is important for us to inform you about how we will use your personal information and to provide options as to the manner of use for such information.

Such information includes personal information gathered in websites proprietary to ANATECH and used for commercial purposes and personal information gathered by ANATECH or subsidiaries as offline for commercial purposes. However, some of our websites or data collections operate with special data types (for example medical data), which require a different confidentiality policy. In such cases, Anatech shall expressly state that such confidentiality policy is different from this general Confidentiality Policy of Anatech.
