Information Voluntarily Provided by Users
You can visit much of this website without telling us who you are or providing us with other personally identifiable information. Some areas of the website allow you to contact us to ask questions or provide comments. When you communicate with us and request a response, we ask for your name and contact information. We intend to let you know how we will use such information before we collect it from you; if you tell us that you do not want us to use this information to make further contact with you beyond fulfilling your requests, we will respect your wishes.
Some areas of the website may also require that you submit information to access specific content, features, interactive tools, services, or participate in a particular activity. For example, to create an online account or to subscribe to a newsletter, we may ask for your name, contact information, and perhaps additional information so we can tailor our response to your request. In addition, when you access certain interactive tools or services, you may be asked to provide personally identifiable information. You may always choose not to provide the required information, but then you may not be able to participate in the particular activity that requires the information.
Use, Disclosure, and Removal of Your Personally Identifiable Information That You Provide Voluntarily

If you do provide us with personally identifiable information, such as your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, or other information such as your education level, or personal medical information, you agree that we may contact you through a variety of means such as postal mail, phone, or email to provide you with information we believe may be of interest to you unless you opt out of this service by contacting us as indicated in the Question section below.

In addition, as stated in the Transfer of Control section, your personally identifiable information may be shared with actual or potential parties to a contemplated transaction where we decide to reorganize or divest part or all of a business or a line of our business, without obtaining your consent or any further notice to you. In such circumstances, we will seek written assurances that personally identifiable information submitted through this website will be protected appropriately. Your personally identifiable information will be maintained by Mead Johnson Nutrition until such time that you ask us to remove it, or until such time as the information is removed as part of our record retention process.
