ImmuneWorks, Inc. Privacy Statement

This Privacy Statement explains how ImmuneWorks, Inc. (“ImmuneWorks”) handles the personal information that you provide to us on Websites controlled by ImmuneWorks (the “ImmuneWorks Websites”).  This Privacy Statement does not apply to personal information collected from you offline or to third-party Websites to which ImmuneWorks Websites may link.  Your use of ImmuneWorks Websites is subject to this Privacy Statement.

Please read this Privacy Statement before using ImmuneWorks Websites or submitting personal information to us.

How does this Privacy Statement define “personal information”?
“Personal information” means information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you and that is submitted to and/or collected by ImmuneWorks Websites and maintained by ImmuneWorks in an accessible form.  Examples of personal information include your name, your postal address and your telephone number.

How does ImmuneWorks collect information online?

ImmuneWorks collects information in two ways:

  • Personal Information You Submit:   ImmuneWorks collects personal information that you enter into data fields on ImmuneWorks Websites.  For example, you may submit your name, postal address, e-mail address, and/or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for ImmuneWorks programs, or contact ImmuneWorks.  To protect your privacy, you should not provide ImmuneWorks with any information that is not specifically requested.
  • Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information:  ImmuneWorks Websites may collect information about your visits to ImmuneWorks Websites without you actively submitting such information.  Unidentifiable information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies, Internet tags, and web beacons.  Your Internet browser automatically transmits to ImmuneWorks Websites some of this unidentifiable information, such as the URL of the Website you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating.  Passive information collection technologies can make your use of ImmuneWorks Websites easier by allowing ImmuneWorks to provide better service, customize sites based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyze trends, and otherwise administer and improve ImmuneWorks Websites.  Certain features of ImmuneWorks Websites may not work without use of passive information collection technologies.  Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identity you without additional identifiable information.

In what circumstances might ImmuneWorks collect and use personal information?
ImmuneWorks will use the personal information you provide through ImmuneWorks Websites to respond to your questions, to provide you with information, or for other purposes that may be identified in connection with a form or data field for entry of information.  We may also use this personal information for other business purposes, such as to inform you about news affecting the ImmuneWorks or its products or services.

What choices do I have about how ImmuneWorks collects and uses personal information about me?
You may always limit the amount and type of personal information that ImmuneWorks receives about you by choosing not to enter any personal information into forms or data fields on ImmuneWorks Websites.  Some of our online services can only be provided to you if you provide us with appropriate personal information.  Other parts of ImmuneWorks Websites may ask whether you wish to opt out or opt into our contact lists.
You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want ImmuneWorks Websites to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to “remember” your personal information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits.  However, ImmuneWorks Websites that use tracking technologies to collect unidentifiable information do not generally provide you with the ability to opt out of the tracking technologies.  Some Internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentifiable information.

Who will have access to personal information about me?
Personal information can be accessed by a restricted number of ImmuneWorks employees, by certain companies with which ImmuneWorks may conduct joint programs or clinical research, and by individuals and entities with whom ImmuneWorks contracts to carry out business activities for ImmuneWorks.  We train our employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage personal data appropriately and securely.   In addition, ImmuneWorks’ practice is to require its contractors to keep your personal information confidential and to use personal information only to perform functions for ImmuneWorks.

Does ImmuneWorks share personal information with third parties?
As a general rule, ImmuneWorks does not share your personal information with third parties, unless it is necessary to conduct a joint program or clinical research, or to carry out a program or activity through a contractor.  Where required by law, ImmuneWorks will not disclose your personal information to third parties for those third parties’ marketing purposes, unless you have been provided with an opportunity to opt into or opt out of this disclosure.  However, if ImmuneWorks sells one of its product lines or divisions, your personal information may be transferred to the buyer so that the buyer can continue to provide you with information and services.  If ImmuneWorks provides your personal information to individuals and entities which assist us with our business activities, it is ImmuneWorks’ practice to require those individuals and entities to keep your personal information confidential and to use your personal information only to perform functions for ImmuneWorks.  ImmuneWorks reserves the right to disclose your personal information to respond to authorized information requests from government authorities, to address national security situations, or when otherwise required by law.

How does ImmuneWorks secure personal information?
The confidentiality of personal information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed.  We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting personal information over the Internet, especially personal information related to your health.  ImmuneWorks cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your personal information; therefore, when submitting personal information to ImmuneWorks Websites, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks.  In addition, you should check the privacy policies of third-party Websites before submitting personal information.

How does ImmuneWorks protect the privacy of children?
