aggregated (collective) anonymous information we collect through this site. In some
instances, we may use such information to deliver tailored advertisements. For example,

Voluntary Customer Surveys
We may periodically conduct customer surveys. We encourage our customers to participate
in these surveys because they provide us with important information that helps us
to improve the types of products and services we offer and how we provide them.
Your personal information and responses will remain strictly confidential, even
if the survey is conducted by a third party that we hire. Participation in any of
our customer surveys is voluntary.
We take the information we receive from individuals responding to customer surveys
and aggregate (combine) it with the responses of other Merit Medical customers to
create broader, generic responses to the survey questions (such as gender, age,
residence, hobbies, education, employment, industry sector, or other demographic
information). We then use the aggregated information to improve the quality of our
products and services, and to develop new products and services. This aggregated,
anonymous information may be shared with third parties.
It is our policy not to use or share personal information about use in ways unrelated
to the ones described above, without providing users an opportunity to opt out or
otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses. We may disclose such personal information,

the circumstances. Our reasons for disclosure of personal information may include,
for example, to satisfy our obligations under the law, such as the Electronic Communications
Privacy Act, regulations, or governmental or legal requests for information; to
disclose information that is necessary to identify, contact, or bring legal action
otherwise to protect Merit Medical and its customers.
