3. On what legal basis do we Process Personal Data and how do we use it?
We Process Personal Data in accordance with data privacy laws applicable to us in the context of Processing your Personal Data.
Lawful basis for Processing Personal Data of Website users
In connection with your use of our Website, we Process your Personal Data based on our legitimate interests in performing the essential functions of our Website and to communicate with you in response to any inquiry or request you make of us. We Process Personal Data collected through performance cookies based on your consent.
Lawful basis for Processing Personal Data of clinical trial and compassionate use participants and of Study Personnel
We Process the Personal Data of clinical trial and compassionate use participants for our legitimate interests, legal obligation, scientific research, public interest in the area of public health, or based on the participant’s explicit consent. The legal basis relied on in a particular trial or in the compassionate use program will be described in a seperate notice provided to the clinical trial or compassionate use program participant, as may be required by applicable law.
We Process the Personal Data of Study Personnel based on several different legal bases, depending on the purpose of the Processing. For example, we may Process Personal Data based on our legitimate interests in communicating administrative details, to meet contractual obligations under an agreement with the study site or with other parties, and in connection with certain business transactions. We might also need to Process Personal Data based on our legal obligation to ensure compliance with proper protocols and applicable regulatory requirements. The legal bases relied on will be described in a seperate notice provided to Study Personnel, as may be required by applicable law.
Lawful basis for Processing Personal Data of service providers and vendors
We Process Personal Data of our vendors and service providers for the legitimate interests of addressing our contractual obligations with them. Our Processing of Personal Data allows us to provide or receive goods and services pursuant to these contracts or to carry out pre-contractual measures that occur as part of a request by a customer or service providers.
Lawful basis for Processing publicly posted information
We Process publicly posted information for the legitimate interests of better understanding how our products, services and clinical trials are aligning with our mission and for assessing how we can improve what we do. Where the Processing involves health or other special category Personal Data, the legal basis for Processing the Personal Data is that you have made the Personal Data manifestly public.
Legal obligation and other legitimate interests
We also Process Personal Data for the purposes of addressing legal obligations and for other legitimate interests pursued by us or a third party on our behalf. These legal obligations and other legitimate interests include:
- as required by law including, but not limited to, complying with a subpoena or other legal process, regulatory requirement, judicial proceeding, or court order served on us, or to comply with government reporting obligations; and
- asserting legal claims and defenses in legal disputes.
- when we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to detect, prevent, or respond to fraud or violations of law; for corporate audits; to investigate or respond to a complaint or security threat; and connection with other bonafide business administrative and compliance activities; and
- in connection with the negotiation or completion of a merger, acquisition, partnership, business reorganization, debt financing, insolvency, bankruptcy, receivership, sale of all or a portion of our assets, or other similar business transaction.
In each case where the legal basis for the Processing is our legitimate interests, you have the right to object to the Processing of your Personal Data by submitting your request to firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will consider and respond to the request in accordance with applicable law.
4. Who receives your Personal Data?
We share Personal Data within the Company only with personnel who need access to it to perform their roles and responsibilities in line with the purposes described in this Privacy Notice.
We may share Personal Data with third parties in the context of the applicable lawful basis set forth in this Privacy Notice, or if we are required to share it by law or as directed by a regulatory authority. For example, we may share Personal Data with law enforcement or data protection regulatory authorities or auditors. We may also share your Personal Data with service providers or other third parties for purposes of conducting and managing the Website, addressing legal or other official obligations, or as otherwise necessary to carry out our relationship with you or to satisfy other purposes described in this Notice. We may further share Personal Data in connection with a business transition, merger, acquisition, partnership, business reorganization, debt financing, insolvency, bankruptcy, sale of assets or similar business transaction. Your Personal Data may be part of any assets transferred.
Some of these parties may be located outside of the country where your Personal Data was originally collected.
5. Will your Personal Data be transferred to a third country or an international organization?
We may collect or receive Personal Data outside of the U.S. in connection with the purposes described in this Privacy Notice. Personal Data collected or received by or on behalf of the Company is stored in the U.S., the European Union (“EU”), and in other countries and may be Processed by parties located both inside and outside of the U.S. If you live outside the U.S., be aware that the U.S. and other countries may not have the same level of data protection as your country. The party in the U.S. or other country without an adequate level of data protection may agree to standard data contractual clauses (“SCCs”) to safeguard the Personal Data it receives. If Personal Data is transferred to the U.S. based on SCCs, the parties to the SCCs will consider the circumstances surrounding the transfer and document supplementary measures as required by law to protect the Personal Data. If legally permissible, we may also rely on your explicit consent in other instances to transfer Personal Data. In some cases, Personal Data may also be transferred to the U.S. or other countries in other ways permitted under applicable law. If you would like to request the specific safeguards applied to the export of your Personal Data, if applicable, send your request to email@example.com.
6. How long will your Personal Data be Processed?
We keep Personal Data as long as necessary to address the reason we collected or received it, including to address legal requirements. We Process Personal Data collected through cookies for different time periods depending on the type of cookie used. We Process data collected through essential cookies for up to 1 year. Personal Data collected through performance cookies is Processed for up to 5 years. If you are a clinical trial or compassionate use participant, a principal investigator, clinical trial staff, or other individual involved in implementing our clinical trials, we will Process your Personal Data for up to 25 years, and possibly longer if a regulatory authority requires it. If you are a vendor or service provider, we will Process your Personal Data for no longer than 7 years following the completion of our business relationship with you. If required by law or by a legal order, we may Process your Personal Data for a longer period consistent with the law or legal order or our contractual rights. For example, we may need to keep your Personal Data longer to fulfill obligations to preserve records under tax law or for accounting purposes, or if we are obligated to hold Personal Data because of a legal prohibition against removing or deleting it.
7. How we protect your information
We take reasonable and appropriate measures to protect your Personal Data against unauthorized use, access, disclosure, and destruction. Please be aware that, despite our best efforts, security measures are not impenetrable.
8. What data privacy rights do you have?
Subject to some exceptions and limitations under applicable law, you have several rights, including:
The right to access, which allows you to obtain a copy of your Personal Data, on request;
The right to rectification, which requires the Company to change incorrect or incomplete data about you;
The right to restrict and object to Processing, which requires the Company to limit or stop Processing your Personal Data under certain circumstances;
The right to erasure, which requires the Company to erase your data; and
If applicable, the right to data portability, which allows you to transfer your Personal Data from the Company to another individual or entity.

In the context of responding to an inquiry you have made or to address another lawful purpose, you must provide all Personal Data that is required (as applicable) for that purpose. Without this Personal Data, we are not able to respond properly to your inquiry or address the purpose.
