Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to Apollo Endosurgery. Therefore, Apollo Endosurgery Inc. and its subsidiaries (“APOLLO ENDOSURGERY”) operate its websites in compliance with applicable laws on data privacy protection and data security.
In the following, we provide information on the kinds of data we collect on APOLLO ENDOSURGERY’s websites, the purposes for which we use such data, and the parties with which we share such data, where applicable.
Collected data and purpose of processing
In addition, we collect personal data (e.g., names, telephone numbers, or e-mail addresses) in connection with the operation of APOLLO ENDOSURGERY’s websites and business only when you have voluntarily provided such data to us (e.g., through registration, contact inquiries, surveys, etc.) and when we are entitled to process or use such data by virtue of permission granted by you or on the basis of a statutory provision.
As a general rule, we use such data only for the purpose for which you released the data to us, such as to answer your inquiries, grant you access to certain information or offerings, or provide you with information about our products or related services.
Sharing of data
Insofar as you have provided your consent or when we are otherwise legally entitled to do so, we will share your personal data with other APOLLO ENDOSURGERY subsidiaries, where applicable, for the purposes indicated above.
In connection with the operation of its website and the services provided by way of the website, APOLLO ENDOSURGERY works with service providers such as hosting or IT maintenance service providers, for example.
These recipients may possibly be located in countries outside of the European Economic Area, in which applicable laws do not offer the same level of data privacy protection as in your home country. In such cases, APOLLO ENDOSURGERY takes measures to ensure an appropriate level of data privacy protection. Data is shared only in connection with and in compliance with applicable laws and regulations. We do not sell or otherwise market your personal data to third parties.

For example, when you visit our website, we place cookies on your computer. Cookies are small text files that websites send to your computer or other Internet-connected device to uniquely identify your browser or to store information or settings in your browser.

Pixel tags and web beacons are tiny graphics placed on website pages or in our emails that allow us to determine whether you have performed a specific action.

APOLLO ENDOSURGERY or its service provider’s server logs the IP address of the device you use to connect to the Internet. An IP address is a unique identifier that devices use to identify and communicate with each other on the Internet.
