We may use the information to respond to your requests, improve our level of service and the content of our web site. WE may provide you with tips, helpful information, product news and updates. We may use the personally identifiable information to notify you of new WGI products and services.

Use of IP Addresses.
An Internet Protocol (IP) address is a set of numbers that is automatically assigned to your computer whenever you log on to your Internet service provider or through your organization's local area network (LAN) or wide area network (WAN). Web servers automatically identify your computer by the IP address assigned to it during your session online.

We may also share this information with other companies within the GlaxoSmithKine group and with other third parties. NO PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION IS DISCLOSED IN THIS PROCESS.
This Site uses a technology called "cookies". A cookie is a small text file that is placed on your hard disk by a Web page server.

In all cases in which cookies are used, we will not collect personally identifiable information without your explicit permission. The only personally identifiable information WGI collects is the information you voluntarily provide.
