Collection of Personal Information
“Personal Information” is information that directly identifies you or could reasonably be used in combination with other information to identify you and which is submitted to and/or collected by Partner Therapeutics, Inc. websites and maintained by or for Partner Therapeutics, Inc. in an accessible form. Examples of Personal Information that directly identifies you can include your name, driver’s license number, social security number, biometric or genetic data, street address, telephone number, email address, and other similar information. Examples of Personal Information that when combined with other information may be able to identify you include race, gender, date of birth, health condition or status, employment status, zip code, and other similar information. Both types of information are considered “Personal Information” for the purposes of this policy.
Please do not submit any Personal Information if you do not want it to be collected. You should be aware, however, that without providing requested information, you may not be able to participate in particular features or activities that require such information.
Certain areas of our websites allow you to contact us to ask questions or provide comments or other information. Please be aware that when you ask questions or provide comments or other information, you may be disclosing Personal Information.
Non-Personal Information is information that is not personal, such as questions, comments, ideas, and suggestions that you provide, or information that we may collect that is not linked to any Personal Information. Non-Personal Information will be treated as non-confidential, and we may disclose and/or use that information without any obligation whatsoever to you, for any purpose and through any means.
How Personal Information may be used
If you provide us with Personal Information, we may use that information to contact you by e-mail, regular mail, telephone, or other means, to provide you with information you requested about specific products or services, provide additional future information about products or services that may be of interest to you, and to learn about and develop products and services concerning a particular disease or condition (e.g., market research). Other or additional information about use of your Personal Information may appear at the point where you are asked to provide Personal Information in a form or data field.
Partner Therapeutics, Inc. may combine your Personal Information provided on one Partner Therapeutics, Inc. website with Personal Information provided in other online or offline records held by Partner Therapeutics, Inc., and/or with records provided by third parties. Partner Therapeutics, Inc. may also combine your Personal Information with information gathered through cookies, web logs, and other visitor tracking technologies, discussed further below. We use this consolidated information to help us better design Partner Therapeutics, Inc. websites and products, to communicate information to you, to enhance our marketing and research activities, and to facilitate other business functions.
Who Personal Information may be disclosed to
Partner Therapeutics, Inc. will not transfer or allow access to your Personal Information to third parties, except (i) to affiliated entities within Partner Therapeutics, Inc., whether inside the United States or in other countries; (ii) to vendors and service providers who provide services to us (e.g., market research) or who assist us in providing service to you (e.g., a fulfillment company for processing and mailing purposes); (iii) in connection with security-related or law enforcement investigations or in the course of cooperating with authorities; (iv) to comply with legal requirements or to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims; (v) when we believe it is necessary to share information to assist in an investigation regarding, or to prevent, illegal activities, suspected fraud, or situations involving potential threats to the safety of any person; (vi) upon a sale, merger, assignment, or transfer of the business of the website to which the information relates; and (vii) to third parties with whom Partner Therapeutics, Inc. is jointly marketing a product or service or jointly conducting a program or activity. Any affiliated entity, vendor, or service provider, or other third party who is permitted access to, or to whom we transfer, Personal Information is required to keep your Personal Information confidential.
Partner Therapeutics, Inc. takes reasonable precautions to keep Personal Information secure against unauthorized access and use. However, 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. Partner Therapeutics, Inc. cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to your Personal Information; therefore, when submitting Personal Information to Partner Therapeutics, Inc. websites, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks.
Visitor tracking information
Partner Therapeutics, Inc. websites may use a tracking technology called a “cookie.” A “cookie” is a small text file that a website can place on your computer’s hard drive in order, for example, to collect information about your activities on the site, to track your preferences and selections, or to show you advertisements based on your interests, such as banner ads relating to Partner Therapeutics, Inc. products and services. Cookies may be placed on your computer by Partner Therapeutics, Inc. (a “firstparty cookie”) or by another company or advertiser that Partner Therapeutics, Inc. engages to provide services or advertising on a Partner Therapeutics, Inc. website (a “third-party cookie”). It is possible that these cookies could be used in combination with other information to identify you.
Information stored in first-party cookies associated with a Partner Therapeutics, Inc. website will be transmitted back to us. Information stored in third-party cookies may be transmitted to the party placing the cookie, so that they can deliver to you messages and advertisements based on your interests as you browse the Internet. You may be able to opt-out of third parties using cookies to deliver interest based advertising to you by visiting www.aboutads.info/choices/. With most Internet browsers, you can also erase cookies from your computer’s hard drive, block all cookies, block specific kinds of cookies, or even receive a warning before a cookie is placed on your system. Refer to your browser instructions or help button to learn more about cookies. You should be aware, however, that cookies might be necessary to provide you with certain features (eg, customized delivery of information) available on Partner Therapeutics, Inc. websites. In addition, certain web browsers and other programs may be used to signal your preferences to Partner Therapeutics, Inc. about how or whether Partner Therapeutics, Inc. or third parties may collect information about your online activities. Currently, Partner Therapeutics, Inc. does not respond to such signals.
Partner Therapeutics, Inc. websites may also automatically collect and store web log information relating to your computer and your visit, such as the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet; the Internet address of the website from which you linked to a Partner Therapeutics, Inc. website; the date and time you accessed a Partner Therapeutics, Inc. website; how long you spent and which pages you visited; your computer’s operating system and browser software; and your Internet protocol (IP) address. An IP address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet Service Provider so you can access the Internet. This number may change each time you connect to the Internet (“dynamic IP address”) or it may remain constant (“static IP address”). If you have a static IP address, it is possible that this address could be used in combination with other information to identify you.
