Where We Process Your Personal Information
The information which we collect from you may be transferred to, processed at, and stored in the USA or any location where our subsidiaries, affiliates, or service providers maintain facilities. By submitting your personal information, you hereby consent and agree to this transfer, storing, or processing.
Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of our site, if applicable, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. If you believe that your password has been compromised, please immediately notify us by contacting us in accordance with the “Contact Us” section below.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will aim to protect your personal information, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site, and any transmission is therefore at your own risk.
Once we receive your information, we take appropriate physical, technical, and organizational security measures to protect it from misuse, unauthorized, or unlawful access or disclosure, loss, alteration, damage, or destruction, including by implementing physical, technological, and organizational safeguards.
Links to Other Sites
Our website may contain links to other websites, including the websites of our third-party networks and advertisers. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that these websites have their own privacy policies and information practices for which we are not responsible. Please check these policies before you submit any personal information to these websites.
You have the right to opt-out of marketing-related messages from Flagship Biosciences, Inc. and our sharing of your personal information with affiliates, subsidiaries, and third parties for marketing purposes. You can exercise your right to prevent such processing by, where applicable, using any “unsubscribe” button or link that is contained in any emails we may send to you or by registering your preference on certain boxes on the forms we use to collect your data. You can also exercise the right at any time by contacting us using the contact details shown below. However, we do reserve the right to continue sending you messages that are related to your relationship with us or to prior transactions between you and us.
Our site is not directed to, nor do we knowingly collect information from, children under the age of 13.
Retention of Personal Information
We retain your personal information:
- for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you with products or services or to fulfill our contractual obligations;
- as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements; and
- for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which we collect it.
After your service or receipt of products has expired or terminated, we may delete your name, email address, and transactional data, so that we limit our ability to reasonably identify you.
Provisions Applicable to California Residents Only
If you are a California resident, you have a right to request certain information with respect to the types of personal information we have shared with third parties for their direct marketing purposes, and the identities of those third parties, within the immediately preceding calendar year, subject to certain exceptions. All requests for such information must be sent to email@example.com.
This same California law permits us to provide you, in response to your written request, with a cost-free means to choose not to have your information shared rather than providing the above described information. To that end, you may request that we do not disclose your personal information to unaffiliated third parties for their own direct marketing purposes by contacting us by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a California resident under 18 years of age and a registered user of our services, you may request that we remove content and information that you post on our services. To obtain removal of such content and information, please send us an email to email@example.com with a short description of the content or information you would like to have removed. Please note that such a request does not necessarily ensure complete or comprehensive removal of content posted by you, since the content and information may remain in our databases, may remain visible in a manner that does not identify you, or may have been re-posted by another user.
Provisions Applicable to Citizens of European Economic Area Only
You have the right (we suggest by using the contact details below), to request, in accordance with data protection laws: access to, rectification, and erasure of your personal information; restriction of processing of personal information; objecting to certain processing of personal information; and a right to make a subject access request.
Where any processing of personal information is solely dependent upon your consent, such as marketing to you, you have the right to withdraw such consent at any time (we suggest by using the unsubscribe option in the relevant communication).
Where you believe that we have not processed your personal information in accordance with the applicable data protection laws, you may lodge a complaint with the respective supervisory authority/data protection regulator.
The provision of personal information by you will be for contractual, marketing, or analytical purposes as referred to above. If we do not have access to such personal information from you, then we will not be able to undertake the above types of services for you.
We are located in the United States and all information given to us will be transferred to the United States if collected outside of the United States. The government of the EU has decided that the United States does not have adequate safeguards for the protection of personal data. As such, you consent to all such transfers knowing that there is a risk that your personal data in such country is not required to be protected to the same extent as in the EU due to the absence of an adequacy decision by the appropriate EU regulators and the lack of appropriate safeguards required in the United States.
Accessing, Updating, or Correcting Information
You have a right, in accordance with applicable laws, to access, update, correct, and in some cases request removal of the personal information held about you. When updating your personal information, we may ask you to verify your identity before we can act on your request. Any access request will be subject to the relevant fee to meet our costs in providing you with details of the information we hold about you. We will comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable and in accordance with applicable law. We may need to retain certain information for record-keeping purposes, as required under applicable legal obligations, and/or to complete any transactions that you began prior to requesting such change or deletion. Further details can be obtained by using the contact details shown below.
WE MAY WITHHOLD INFORMATION WHERE THE SEARCH FOR THAT INFORMATION WOULD REQUIRE DISPROPORTIONATE EFFORT OR HAVE A DISPROPORTIONATE EFFECT DUE TO, FOR EXAMPLE, THE COST OF PROVIDING THE DATA, THE TIME IT WOULD TAKE TO RETRIEVE THE DATA, OR HOW DIFFICULT IT MAY BE TO OBTAIN THE DATA REQUESTED.
Changes to Our Statement
We reserve the right to revise or modify this Statement. If we do, we will post a prominent notice on our website prior to the change becoming effective. We may also send you an email. If the changes would have the effect of introducing a purpose for the use of your personal information that is inconsistent with this Statement, and where required by applicable law, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to either notify you or provide you with an opportunity to opt-out from us making such use. Please check back frequently to see any updates or changes to our Statement.
