Privacy Policy

Last updated: June 21, 2017

Welcome to the web site (the “Site”) of BlueRock Therapeutics (“BlueRock”, “we”, “us” and/or “our”). This Privacy Policy sets forth our policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”) and other information that is collected from Site visitors.

1. Information We Collect

Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site

When you interact with us through the Site, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you.  We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries.

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to this Site, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of BlueRock and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States. 

Non-Identifiable Data

When you interact with BlueRock through the Site, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. BlueRock may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by BlueRock affiliates, agents or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.

In operating this Site, we may use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Site gives to your browser when you access the Site. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately. For instance, our Site may set a cookie on your browser that allows you to access the Site without needing to remember and then enter a password more than once during a visit to the Site. In all cases in which we use cookies, we will not collect Personal Data except with your permission. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Site’s features.

Do Not Track

We may (and we may allow third party service providers to) use cookies or similar technologies to collect information about your browsing activities over time and across different websites following your use of our Site.  Our Site currently does not respond to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals and operate as described in this Privacy Policy whether or not a DNT signal is received. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy Policy.

2. Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information

We use Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by e-mail, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem.

If we intend on using any Personal Data in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such anticipated use prior to or at the time at which the Personal Data is collected.

3. Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:

We are not in the business of selling your information. We consider this information to be a vital part of our relationship with you. There are, however, certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.

Related Companies: We may also share your Personal Data with our subsidiaries and affiliates for purposes consistent with this Privacy Policy.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: BlueRock, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information and maintaining databases. When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.

Legal Requirements: BlueRock may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of BlueRock, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.

4. Your Choices

You can use this Site without providing any Personal Data. If you choose not to provide any Personal Data, you may not be able to use certain services on this Site.

5. Exclusions

This Privacy Policy does not apply to any Personal Data collected by BlueRock other than Personal Data collected through the Site. This Privacy Policy shall not apply to any unsolicited information you provide to BlueRock through this Site or through any other means.

6. Children

BlueRock does not knowingly collect Personal Data from children under the age of 13. If you are under the age of 13, please do not submit any Personal Data through the Site. We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children never to provide Personal Data on this Site without their permission. If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Data to BlueRock through this Site, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.

7. Links to Other Websites: 

This Privacy Policy applies only to the Site. This Site may contain links to other web sites not operated or controlled by BlueRock (the “Third Party Sites”). The policies and procedures we described here do not apply to the Third Party Sites. The links from this Site do not imply that BlueRock endorses or has reviewed the Third Party Sites. We suggest contacting those sites directly for information on their privacy policies.

8. Security

BlueRock takes reasonable steps to protect the Personal Data provided via the Site from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, no Internet or e-mail transmission is ever fully secure or error free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this Site may not be secure. Therefore, you should take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Please keep this in mind when disclosing any Personal Data to BlueRock via the Internet.
