The following describes Hologic Inc.’s (“Hologic”) privacy practices, including its policy for information received from or about you during visits to the website. The amount and type of information received depends on how you use the website. We may collect and store information during normal website usage such as the name of your Internet service provider, the website that referred you to us, the pages you request, and the date and time of those requests. We may use this information to generate statistics and measure site activity to improve the usefulness of customer visits.
During normal website usage, we do not collect or store information that will individually identify you (such as name, mailing address, e-mail address or phone number). However, Hologic may request such information to provide you with a service or correspondence (such as promotional material). Such information (including your name, mailing address, e-mail address, type of request, or other information) is collected, stored, and used consistent with all applicable laws and in a manner appropriate to the nature of your request and is used to fulfill it.
Information you provide to Hologic is used to improve the services we provide you or for the development of its business, and is not provided to any unrelated company for that company’s independent use. If you decide (without request by Hologic) to send information that will identify you, for example in a message containing comments about this website or otherwise, Hologic will use such information to identify you but will not generally use it except to address or resolve the matter identified in your message.
Hologic reserves the right to transfer any information it has about you in the event it sells or transfers all or a portion of its business or assets. Should such a sale or transfer occur, Hologic will use reasonable efforts to direct the purchaser or transferee to use personal information you have provided through this website in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Statement.
Hologic also reserves the right to transfer personal information it collects on this site to other countries where it does business. Such information will only be shared for the purposes described above. When such information is transferred to other countries, Hologic will use reasonable efforts to protect such information as described herein unless otherwise required by applicable laws.

Limits on Accuracy
The website was developed as a service by Hologic to provide information about its products and services. Information is believed to be accurate at the time it is created. However, like any printed material, information may become outdated over time. Information on the website may contain technical inaccuracies or typographical errors. Information may be changed or updated without notice. There may also be improvements or changes in the products and services described in the website at any time without notice. It is important that you rely on the advice of an appropriate professional. Nothing contained in any presentation is to be construed as medical, legal, investment, financial, or other advice. This information is not intended to be a substitute for such advice. Hologic does not endorse any specific surgical techniques or methods of treatment. It is up to the individual health care professional to use their best medical judgment when determining appropriate patient care or surgical techniques. Individuals are advised to consult their health care professionals for full information about the potential adverse reactions from use of the medical technologies discussed in this site. Hologic will use reasonable efforts to include accurate and up-to-date information on the website, but Hologic makes no warranties or representations as to its accuracy. All users agree that all access to and use of the website is at their own risk.
Forward Looking Statements
From time to time, Hologic or its representatives may have made or may make forward-looking statements, orally or in writing. Such forward-looking statements may be included in, but, not limited to, press releases, oral statements made by or with the approval of an authorized executive officer, or in this report or other filings made by Hologic with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The words or phrases ”trend,” ”expect,” ”grow,” ”will,” ”could,” ”likely result,” ”planned,” ”continued,” ”anticipated,” ”estimated,” ”projected,” ”scheduled,” ”could have,” ”intended,” ”believes,” ”continuing,” ”considers,” ”may be,” ”assessed,” ”contingency,” or similar expressions are intended to identify ”forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995. Hologic wishes to ensure that such statements are accompanied by meaningful cautionary statements, so as to maximize to the fullest extent possible the protections of the safe harbor established in said Act. Accordingly, such statements are qualified in their entirety by reference to and are accompanied by the following discussion of certain important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from such forward-looking statements. Investors should also be aware of factors that could have an impact on Hologic’s business or financial position or performance. Reference is also made to other parts of this report and the Hologic’s most recent Annual Report on Form 10-K, available from Hologic upon request, that includes additional information concerning factors that could adversely impact Hologic’s business or financial position or performance. Moreover, Hologic operates in a changing and very competitive business environment. New risks may emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all risk factors, nor can it necessarily identify or assess the impact of all such factors on Hologic or the extent to which any factor or combination of factors may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statements. Accordingly, forward-looking statements should not be relied upon as a prediction of actual results.
You agree to indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Hologic, its officers, directors, employees, agents, licensors, suppliers, and any third party information providers to the website from and against all losses, expenses, damages and costs, including reasonable attorney’s fees, resulting from any information you provide or from any violation of this Agreement by you.

Hologic reserves the right at all times to disclose any information that Hologic deems necessary to comply with any applicable law, regulation, legal process or governmental request.
