Abbott collects information in a few different ways:
Information You Submit or Give Us Permission to Obtain. Abbott collects personal information that you enter into data fields on Abbott Nutrition Websites. This may include, for example, your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other personal information. If you’re accessing Abbott Websites on your mobile device, you may also choose to provide us with location data. To protect your privacy, you should not provide Abbott with any information that is not specifically requested.
Log data. When you use Abbott Nutrition Websites, our servers automatically record information (“log data”), including information that your browser sends whenever you visit an Abbott Nutrition Website or your mobile app sends when you’re using it. This log data may include your Internet Protocol address, the address of the webpages you visited that had Abbott Nutrition Website features, browser type and settings, the date and time of your request, how you used Abbott Nutrition Websites, and cookie data.
Social Media Plugins and Data. In addition, Abbott Nutrition Websites may use social media plugins (e.g., the Facebook "Like" button, '"Share to Twitter"' button) to enable you to easily share information with others. When you visit Abbott Nutrition Websites, the operator of the social plugin can place a cookie on your computer, enabling that operator to recognize individuals who have previously visited our Abbott Nutrition Websites. If you are logged into the social media website (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, Google+) while browsing on Abbott Nutrition Websites, the social plugins allow that social media website to receive information that you have visited Abbott Nutrition Websites. The social plugins also allow the social media website to share information about your activities on Abbott Nutrition Websites with other users of their social media website. Abbott does not control any of the content from the social plugins. For more information about social plugins from other social media websites you should refer to those sites' privacy and data sharing statements.
Device information. In addition to log data, we may also collect information about the device you’re using to access Abbott Nutrition Websites, including what type of device it is, what operating system you’re using, device settings, unique device identifiers, and crash data. Whether we collect some or all of this information often depends on what type of device you’re using and its settings. For example, different types of information are available depending on whether you’re using a Mac or a PC, or an iPhone or an Android phone. To learn more about what information your device may make available to us, please also check the policies of your device manufacturer or software provider.
Information Provided by Abbott Partners. Third parties, such as our vendors and other business and service partners, may share with Abbott the information they collect about you. For example, our vendors may share information with us regarding Abbott ads on websites or applications where such ads run to measure and/or improve those ads. Abbott may receive this information, which may include information like whether clicks on ads led to purchases or a list of criteria to use in targeting ads. We may combine information we get from a third-party with information we already have, and we may combine information that we have collected offline with information we collect on Abbott Nutrition Websites.
HOW DOES ABBOTT USE YOUR INFORMATION?
Abbott will use the personal information you provide through Abbott Nutrition Websites to respond to your questions and to provide you with efficient customer service.
Abbott may also use your information for other purposes, such as to:
Provide our products and services to you and make them better, and to develop new products and services.
Send you notices and information regarding Abbott’s products or services, including notifying you about special promotions or offers.
Invite you to participate in surveys about our products or services.

Abbott may also use information collected from you or about you to offer you customized content, including to:

Remember your personal preferences.
Show you more relevant and meaningful advertisements based on your interests.
Better understand the interests of our customers and visitors to Abbott Nutrition Websites.
Conduct research and analyze the use of our Abbott Nutrition Websites, products, services, and advertisements.
Abbott may also use your information for other purposes disclosed to you from time to time.
Abbott, its vendors and partners, use common tracking tools, such as cookies, pixels, web beacons, and similar technologies (discussed in the “What information does Abbott collect online?” section above), to automatically collect information about users for purposes of enhancing their online experience and delivering more meaningful advertisements. Like many companies, Abbott may also utilize third-party advertising vendors and other partners to collect this information.
One way in which we deliver more meaningful advertisements is through a common form of online advertising known as “retargeting” or “remarketing.” Retargeting works by serving ads on one site based on an individual’s online activities on a different, unrelated site. For example, if you look at Similac® products on an Abbott Nutrition Website, you may later see an advertisement for Similac®products when you visit third-party sites. To do this, Abbott or its advertising vendors may use a device ID, cookie, pixel, web beacon, or similar technology placed by Abbott or our third-party vendor when you visit Abbott Nutrition Websites or third-party websites or apps. The placing of these cookies or other technologies on your device may enable you to be identified across multiple websites. You should consult the privacy policies of our vendors and other websites that you visit to understand how they collect and use your data.
Your ability to control the use of tracking tools such as cookies and to opt-out of retargeting activities is described in the “What choices do I have about how Abbott collects and uses information about me?” section below.DOES ABBOTT COMBINE INFORMATION?
Abbott may combine the information we gather about you on one Abbott Nutrition Website with the information we gather about you on other Abbott Nutrition Websites. Abbott may also combine information we gather about you online with our offline records, as well as records provided by third parties. We use this consolidated information to help us better design Abbott websites and Abbott products, to communicate information to you, to enhance our marketing and research activities, to serve you more relevant advertising, for other purposes that we may disclose to you from time to time, and to facilitate the other business functions described in the “In what circumstances might Abbott use information?” section above.WHAT CHOICES DO I HAVE ABOUT HOW ABBOTT COLLECTS AND USES INFORMATION ABOUT ME?
You may limit the amount and type of personal information that Abbott receives about you by choosing not to enter any personal information into forms or data fields on Abbott Nutrition Websites. Some of our online services can only be provided to you if you provide us with appropriate personal information. Other parts of Abbott Nutrition Websites may ask whether you wish to opt-out or opt into our contact lists for offers, promotions and additional services that may be of interest to you.
In addition, you can control the use of tracking tools and limit retargeting activities as follows:
Controlling Tracking Tools. Most web browsers have an option for turning off the cookie feature, which will prevent your browser from accepting new cookies, as well as (depending on the sophistication of your browser software) allowing you to decide on acceptance of each new cookie in a variety of ways. You can also control Flash cookies which we may use on certain Abbott Nutrition Websites from time to time by clicking here . Why? Because Flash cookies cannot be controlled through your browser settings. Choices you make are both browser and device-specific.
Opting-Out of Retargeting Activities. The Self-Regulatory Program for Online Behavioral Advertising program provides consumers with the ability to opt-out of having their online behavior recorded across time and across websites and used for online behavioral advertising purposes. Click here to opt-out of having your online behavior collected for advertising purposes and receiving behaviorally targeted advertisements from our advertising partners. Choices you make are both browser and device-specific. Also, certain versions of the iOS operating system permit you to “ Limit Ad Tracking ” in the system settings, and certain versions of the Android operating system allow you to “ Opt-out of Interest-Based Ads ” in the system settings. Options you select are browser and device specific.
Abbott Do Not Track Policy. Some browsers have Do Not Track (“DNT”) features that allow you to tell a website not to track you. These features are not all uniform, and some browsers may not be set up to honor such requests. Abbott honors the AdChoice DNT signals. Options you select are browser and device specific. Please be aware that limiting the ability of websites to set cookies, however, may worsen your overall user experience, and in some cases the sites will not work properly without cookies, local storage and similar technologies.
DOES ABBOTT SHARE INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES?
Abbott may share your information with vendors, contractors, business and service partners, or other third parties to fulfill your request, conduct a joint program, to carry out a program, services, or activity on our behalf (including our own advertising and marketing), or as requested by you. Abbott may also disclose your non-personal information to third parties for those third parties’ own advertising or marketing purposes.
If Abbott sells all or part of one of its product lines or divisions, your information may be transferred to the buyer. Abbott reserves the right to disclose your information to respond to authorized information requests from government authorities, to respond to valid judicial requests, to address national security situations, to provide security and investigate potential fraud, or when otherwise required by applicable law.
