We collect information that you voluntarily provide to us if you contact us via a web-based email or with a question or comment about our Site, such as your name, title, company name, profile, telephone number, email address, and home or business address. For example, site visitors interested in Careers at Cooper Companies can send a resume to an email address, and receive an automated response. Our Investor Relations page permits visitors to collect, zip and download files from the investor relations website. To utilize this “shareholder briefcase” function, you will need to complete a form providing your first and last name, email address, title, company, and investor type. Visitors also have the options to subscribe to email alerts about the company, or to submit questions to the Investor Relations department through completing an online form, including providing name and email address.

Most of the Site does not require any form of registration, allowing you to visit the Site without telling us who you are or giving us any personal information.

How We Use Information

The information we collect is used to improve the content of our Site. Additionally, we may disclose information we collect to a successor entity in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, sale of assets or other corporate change respecting the Site.

Information you send to Careers is used for purposes of matching you with potential employment opportunities at Cooper Companies.

If our information practices change at some time in the future, we will post the policy changes to our Site to notify you of these changes and provide you with the ability to opt out of these new uses. If you are concerned about how your information is used, you should check the Site periodically.
