Effective MARCH 2017
The types of personal information that we may collect while you use the Danaher Sites are described in this section and include both information that you provide to us and information that we collect automatically when you use the Danaher Sites.
For purposes of this Privacy Notice, “Personal Information” means information that identifies you or that could reasonably be used to identify you. Examples of Personal Information include name, address, telephone number, and email address.
You do not have to register for a service or program to receive much of the information available through Danaher Sites. However, some of our content is available only to registered or identified users and will require you to set up a profile or provide specific information about yourself in order to provide you the service.
Danaher collects Personal Information that you provide on Danaher Sites, for example, when purchasing a product, to receive marketing products and information, contact Danaher customer service, or respond to Danaher questionnaires or surveys. This could include:
You may contact Danaher to ask questions, discuss your concerns, or report issues regarding our
products. If you communicate with or request information from Danaher, you may be prompted to provide your contact information as well as any personal information that is relevant to your request.
When you use the Danaher Sites, we also may collect certain usage and device information automatically as described below.
We may record the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of your computer or other electronic device when you visit the Danaher Sites. An IP address identifies the electronic device you use to access the Sites, which allows us to maintain communication with your computer as you move about Danaher Sites and to customize content.
We also collect information about your use of Danaher Sites through tracking technologies such as cookies and web beacons. A “cookie” is a unique numeric code that is transferred to your computer to track your interests and preferences and to recognize you as a return visitor. A “Web beacon” is a transparent graphic image placed on a Web site, e-mail or advertisement that enables the monitoring of things such as user activity and site traffic. These technologies help remember your preferences and allow us to bring you the content and features that are likely to be of greatest interest to you on the basis of “clickstream” data that shows your previous activities on Danaher Sites.
We utilize Google Display Advertising (such as Retargeting with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting) to (1) show you our ads on other websites based on your prior visits to Danaher Sites, and (2) better understand our ad impressions and use of ad services. In connection with the Google Analytics Demographics and Interest Reporting service, we may use data from Google's interest-based advertising or third-party audience data (such as age, gender and interests) with Google Analytics to understand and improve our marketing campaigns and Site content.
Some of our online advertising takes place through Google Display Advertising. As part of this program, we use Google Analytics features such as Retargeting. In connection with that feature and others offered by ad networks, we and the operators of ad networks, including Google, may use third-party cookies (such as the DoubleClick cookie) – and in some cases first-party cookies (such as the Google Analytics cookie) – to inform, optimize and serve ads across the Internet, based on a user's past visits to Danaher Sites. We also may show you ads from some of our affiliated companies when you visit Danaher Sites.
You can opt out of Google Ads by visiting http://www.google.com/ads/preferences. If you do not want your data used by Google Analytics, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on at the Google Analytics opt-out page.
This Danaher Site is not designed to respond to "do not track" signals received from browsers.

At a co-branded site, you will see both the Danaher logo and the logo of the co-branding partner displayed on your screen. You should read the individual privacy policies of our co-branding partners, as they may differ in some respects from ours. Reading these policies will help you to make an informed decision about whether to provide your information to a given site.

Danaher maintains reasonable technical, administrative and physical controls to secure any Personal Information collected through the Danaher Sites. However, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party could intercept an Internet transmission, or that someone will find a way to thwart our security systems. We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting Personal Information over the Internet, especially your financial-related information. Danaher cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your Personal Information; therefore, when submitting Personal Information to Danaher Sites, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks.
This Privacy Notice does not apply to Danaher Sites that do not link to this Privacy Notice, or to thirdparty Web sites to which Danaher Sites may link. Danaher Sites may use social media plug-ins (e.g., the Facebook “Like” button, “Share to Twitter” button) to enable you to easily share information with others.
When you visit Danaher Sites, the operator of the social plug-in can place a cookie on your computer or other electronic device that enables that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our Site. If you are logged into the social media Web site (e.g., Facebook, Twitter) while browsing on our
Danaher Site, the social media plug-in allows that social media Web site to receive information that you have visited our Danaher Site. The social media plug-in also allows the social media Web site to share information about your activities on our Danaher Site with other users of their social media Web site.
This site is owned and operated by Danaher in the United States, but the information you provide will be accessible to our affiliates, vendors, and suppliers in other countries. Furthermore, if you are visiting this site from a country other than the United States, your communication with us will necessarily result in
the transfer of information across international borders. The level of legal protection for personal information is not the same in all countries; however, we will take the security measures described in this Privacy Notice in an effort to keep your information secure. By using this site, you consent to the collection, storage, and processing of your information in the United States and in any country to which we may transfer your information in the course of our business operations.
Subject to certain limits under California Civil Code § 1798.83, California residents may ask us to provide them with (i) a list of certain categories of personal information that we have disclosed to third parties for their direct marketing purposes during the immediately preceding calendar year, and (ii) the identity of those third parties.
