Overview
Privacy is of great concern to most users of the Internet, and is a critical part of an enjoyable and satisfactory user experience. We at FCTI are acutely aware of and sensitive to the privacy concerns of our clients and other visitors to our Web site. Whether you are a client or a visitor to our site, we assure you that we do not collect personal information from you unless you voluntarily and knowingly provide it to us.

FCTI bears no responsibility for the information provided by clinics or physicians linked to, or described on, our web site(s) as providers of stem-cell-transplantation. We strive to provide our visitors and clients with the highest level of privacy possible, and therefore require that the clinics or physicians linked to, or described on, our web site(s) offer no less protection than that offered in this Privacy Statement.

Information We Gather

Personal Information
We do not collect any personal information from a visitor to our site unless that visitor explicitly and intentionally provides it. Under no circumstances do we collect any personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, or sex life. If you are simply browsing our site, we do not gather any personal information about you.

There is only one way in which you may explicitly and intentionally provide FCTI with and consent to our collection of certain personal and medical information:

Your Decision to Place an Order for Our Individually Prepared Live Cell Transplants (For Each Patient) or Other Live Cell Therapeutica

If you choose to place an order for manufacturing of our individually for each specific patient prepared stem cell transplants, or other therapeutics of biologic nature, we will consider you a prospective client only after you provide us with a physician's prescription for the same, or alternatively a medical summary of all your diseases(s) and of your overall medical condition, based on which we will advise you whether you are or you are not a candidate for stem-cell-transplantation, or other type of biological therapies. But in any case, you will have to have a qualified physician familiar with stem cell transplantation carry out the implantation of your stem cell transplants.

In certain clinical situations we may inform you that your medical status positions you in a 'gray zone, because there has not been a sufficient experience with stem cell transplantation as a treatment of your particular illness(es), but it still would be worthwhile for you to try such treatment, as the risk/benefit ratio is clearly in favor of stem cell transplantation.

In your medical summary, or in your order for manufacture of your stem cell transplants, we will require your name, date of birth, sex, address, phone number, e-mail address. In case that a client would authorize FCTI in writing to deliver stem cell transplants to his/her physician, then we would require physician's name, address, phone number, and E-mail address.

Statistical Information About Your Visit

When you visit our site, our computers may automatically collect statistics about your visit. This information does not identify you personally, but rather about a visit to our site. We may monitor statistics such as how many people visit our site, the user's IP address, which pages people visit, from which domains our visitors come and which browsers people use. We use these statistics about your visit for aggregation purposes only. These statistics are used to help us improve the performance of our Web site.

Use of Cookies

We do not use 'cookies'.

How We Use and With Whom We Share The Information We Gather
We assure you that the information we gather from you is used by FCTI only as explained below.

Use and Sharing of information that you provided to FCTI

FCTI responds to e-mail questions from those prospective clients only who submitted their medical summary, and were accepted by FCTI as suitable candidates for stem cell transplantation, or were placed in a 'gray zone', as described above. We will retain all medical data of the prospective client, and the subsequent E-mail correspondence, for one year since the date of the last contact. Immediately thereafter all such files are deleted.

The information about clients who ordered stem cell transplants from FCTI has to be kept by law for an indefinite period of time, but at this time FCTI is prepared to do so for 5 years only. 

FCTI does not share any information sent to us by a prospective client, or a client who placed an order for manufacture of stem cell transplants, with anyone.

Information disclosure

If we are required by law to disclose certain information to local, state, federal, national or international government or law enforcement authorities, we will do so.
Your Ability to Opt-Out of Further Notifications
From time-to-time, we will notify our clients of new biological therapeutics, announcements, upgrades and updates. If you would like to opt-out of being notified, please contact us at info@fetal-cells.com
