I. Purpose

This website (excluding linked websites) is controlled by Charles River Laboratories International, Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates (collectively, “Charles River Laboratories,” “we,” “our,” or “us”).

We understand that various laws and regulations around the world govern personal data protection, and we respect the fact that protecting your privacy is important to you. For those reasons, we created this Website Privacy Policy. Please review this policy to learn about how and why we collect, use, share, and protect information.

This Website Privacy Policy applies only to personal data collected online from our websites.

Your use of our website or related services is subject to the then-current version of this Website Privacy Policy, so we urge you to read this document in full from time to time, and contact us using the contact information below if you have any questions.

II. Who We Are

Charles River Laboratories provides a variety of pre-clinical and clinical laboratory services for the pharmaceutical, medical device and biotechnology industries. Our corporate headquarters are located in Wilmington, Massachusetts, USA.

III. What Information We Collect

Information You Give Us

We collect your personal data (such as your professional information, contact information, payment information, sales information, and tradeshow related information) when you choose to submit it to us on our website, and we use it for those purposes which you approved. We may combine this data with other information to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information to help us improve our products and services.

Automatically Collected Information

We automatically collect certain types of information whenever you interact with us on our websites and in some e-mails that we send to you. Automatic technologies we use include, for example, web server logs, Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, cookies, web beacons and third-party tools.

IV. Our Use of Personal Data

Information You Give Us

We may use any personal data you choose to give us to comply with your requests, to communicate with you, and generally to improve our products, services, and website.

Providing Product and Services You Request

If you choose to buy our products or use our services, we may use the personal data you submit to fulfil your requests. We may use personal data for customer relationship or account management, to help with product distribution, sales, customer service, and for customer transaction management.

Marketing and Events

You may also choose to receive information for marketing purposes or events. In such cases, we will use personal data for direct marketing communications, marketing or sales analytics, lead generation, business development, event management, market research and development, education and training (including technical training), and continuing education or accreditation.

Site Analytics and Improvement

We will use personal data submitted to us, in conjunction with such automatically collected information (as described under “Automatically Collected Information” below), to improve our website operation by monitoring user patterns and preferences.

We also use depersonalized, aggregated information collected from our websites to help us understand trends and customer needs, and we may use that analysis of aggregated data internally or share it with our affiliates.

Automatically Collected Information

We use automatically collected information as described below.

V. Retention

Cookies that are created may be kept up to 20 years from the time of creation. Market investigations, market research data, and surveys are kept for 10 years. Sales analysis data is kept for 7 years.

We use multiple databases to record and retrieve information sent to us through web forms (such as contact information, products and services requested, and billing/payment information). This information is kept for as long as needed to fulfill specific business purposes or purposes for which it was collected.

For all other data, a fixed retention period is not possible to determine. Instead we review data for retention based on the following: the purpose of the information; if the information could be reasonably gathered from another source; levels of risk, cost, and liability involved with keeping the information; if the information is still relevant for the original purpose; and the accuracy of the information.

In some cases, laws or regulations that apply to our business may require us to keep information longer than needed for a specific business purpose.

VI. Information Security

We take commercially reasonable steps to safeguard any information you provide to us from unauthorized access, loss, misuse, or alteration. To this effect, our server log files are stored in a secure location and can only be accessed by our authorized employees. Although we take commercially reasonable steps, no system can ever by completely secure or error-free. In addition, it is your responsibility to safeguard any user names, passwords, or information associated with your account.

VII. Your Choices and Rights Under the General Data Protection Regulation
