Use of Personal Data Collected Through
Broncus uses the information you provide to respond to your e-mail, answer your question or resolve your problem. Broncus and our affiliates also use this information to help us improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services. Broncus and our affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future communications.

Please see our “unsolicited ideas policy” for further information about our use of the communications we receive through this website.

Anonymous Data Collected Through
In addition to the information you provide when you use our website, Broncus uses technology to collect anonymous information about the use of our website.

For example, we use technology to track how many visitors access our website, the date and time of their visit, the length of their stay, and which pages they view. We also use technology to determine which Web browsers our visitors use and the address from which they accessed our site (for example, if they connected to by clicking on one of our banner ads).

This technology does not identify you personally. It simply enables us to compile statistics about our visitors and their use of our site. Broncus and our affiliates use this anonymous data and share it with third parties to improve the content and functionality of our websites, to better understand our customers and markets, and to improve our products and services.

In order to collect the anonymous data described in the preceding paragraph, Broncus may use temporary “cookies” that collect the first level domain name of the user (for example, if your e-mail address is “,” the cookie collects the “” portion of your e-mail address) and the date and time you accessed this website. Cookies by themselves cannot be used to discover the identity of the user. A cookie is a small piece of information that is sent to your browser and stored on your computer’s hard drive. Cookies do not damage your computer. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie. This enables you to decide if you want to accept it or not. At the present time, Broncus only uses temporary or “session” cookies. These cookies expire when your browser window is closed.

Disclosure of Your Personal Data
Broncus may share some or all of the personal data collected through this website with our affiliates, who use this data in accordance with this Privacy Policy. Both Broncus and our affiliates may share personal data collected through this website with third-party vendors who act for or on behalf of Broncus or our affiliates, for example, companies that provide support services to us, including data processing services, or that help us market our products and services. These companies may need information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the information we share with them for any other purpose. In addition, there may be some other, limited circumstances in which Broncus or our affiliates may share or transfer the personal data in our databases, for example, to comply with a legal requirement, for the administration of justice, to protect your vital interests, or in the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event.

Broncus does not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of eighteen. If you are under eighteen, please do not give us any personal data. If you have reason to believe that a child has provided personal data to Broncus, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.
