To protect your privacy YouTube videos are embedded using the youtube-nocookie.com version of YouTube which does not automatically set a cookie on your machine when you load a page on the bioline.com that features an embedded video.

We take commercially reasonable precautions such as policy-based access control to protect data in our possession from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access. We follow generally accepted industry standards to protect the data, both during transmission and once received by Meridian. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or method of electronic storage is guaranteed to be 100% secure.
We retain personal information we collect from you where we have an ongoing legitimate business need to do so (for example, to provide you with a service you have requested or to comply with applicable legal requirements). When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
We use a limited number of third-party processors to store and process the data we collect on our behalf. These processors have similar and compliant privacy policies. These third-3rdparties only process data on our behalf. We do not share your data with third-parties for their own use.
As an enterprise serving users in many countries, we may transfer personal information to countries other than the country in which the data was originally collected. This includes transfers within Meridian and to independent third-parties. For users in the European Economic Area (EEA) which includes countries in the European Union, along with Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, when we transfer your personal information to other countries, we will select data processors who keep the data inside the EU. Where this is not practical or possible we only select data processors that contractually comply with EU Data Protection regulations, including the GDPR.
Under the General Data Protection Regulation enacted by the European Union, users who are residents of the EEA have a number of rights relating to the Personally Identifiable Information collected by Meridian:
You have the right to withdraw any consent you have previously given us to handle your personal information. If you withdraw your consent, this will not affect the lawfulness of our use of your personal information prior to the withdrawal of your consent.
In response to a request, we will ask you to verify your identity if we need to, and to provide information that helps us to understand your request better. If we do not comply with your request, whether in whole or in part, we will explain why.
