SUPERNUS may feel it necessary, from time to time, to contact you on behalf of our other third party, external business partners with regards to a potential new offer which may be of interest to you. If you consent or show interest in presented offers, then, at that time, specific identifiable information, such as name, email address and/or telephone number, may be shared with the third party.
SUPERNUS may find it beneficial to all our customers to share specific data with our trusted partners in an effort to conduct statistical analysis, provide you with email and/or postal mail, deliver support and/or arrange for deliveries to be made. Those third parties shall be strictly prohibited from making use of your personal information, other than to deliver those services which you requested, and as such they are required, in accordance with this agreement, to maintain the strictest of confidentiality with regards to all your information.
SUPERNUS uses various third-party social media features including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, Snapchat, Reddit and other interactive programs. These may collect your IP address and require cookies to work properly. These services are governed by the privacy policies of the providers and are not within SUPERNUS’s control.
SUPERNUS does not now, nor will it in the future, sell, rent or lease any of its customer lists and/or names to any third parties.

- as necessary to maintain, safeguard and preserve all the rights and property of SUPERNUS.
SUPERNUS greatly respects your privacy. We do maintain and reserve the right to contact you if needed for non-marketing purposes (such as security breaches, account issues, bug alerts, and/or changes in SUPERNUS products and services). In certain circumstances, we may use our website, newspapers, or other public means to post a notice.

In addition to the rights above, please rest assured that we will always aim to encrypt and anonymize your personal information whenever possible. We also have protocols in place in the unlikely event that we suffer a data breach and we will contact you if your personal information is ever at risk. For more details regarding our security protections see the section below (Security) or visit our website at www.SupernusLaw.com.
SUPERNUS will take reasonable technical and organizational precautions to protect your information. When you submit sensitive information via the website, your information is protected both online and offline. Wherever we collect sensitive information (e.g. credit card information), that information is encrypted and transmitted to us in a secure way. You can verify this by looking for a lock icon in the address bar and looking for “https” at the beginning of the address of the webpage.
While we use encryption to protect sensitive information transmitted online, we also protect your information offline. Only employees who need the information to perform a specific job (for example, billing or customer service) are granted access to personally identifiable information. The computers and servers in which we store personally identifiable information are kept in a secure environment. This is all done to prevent any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, or modification of the user’s personal information under our control.
You acknowledge that the transmission of information over the internet is inherently insecure, and we cannot guarantee the security of data sent over the internet. You are responsible for keeping the password you use for accessing our website confidential; we will not ask you for your password (except when you log in to our website).
The company also uses Secure Socket Layer (SSL) for authentication and private communications to build users’ trust and confidence in the internet and website use by providing simple and secure access and communication of credit card and personal information. In addition, SUPERNUS may also be secured by other third-parties and/or products.
