Welcome to www.integralife.com. This site is owned by Integra LifeSciences
regarding collection, use, and disclosure of information that you may
before using or submitting information to this site. This site is intended
for use by residents of the United States.
Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection,
use, and disclosure of that information in accordance with this Privacy
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 sweepstakes or other promotions). 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 a 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
"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
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
We may disclose your personally identifiable information to other Integra
affiliates worldwide that agree to treat it in accordance with this
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
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
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.

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
