Nutcracker Therapeutics, Inc.

This Privacy Policy describes the types of information we may collect from or about you when you visit our website at https://www.nutcrackerx.com/ or any subdomain thereof, including any content or functionality offered on or through the same (collectively, the “Site”). This Privacy Policy also describes our practices for collecting, using, maintaining, protecting, and disclosing such information.

This Privacy Policy applies to information we collect on the Site and in email or other electronic messages between you and the Site. It does not apply to information collected by us offline or through any other means, including on any other website operated by us or any third party, nor to information collected by any other third party, including through any application or content (including advertising) that may link to or be accessible from or on the Site. Please read this Privacy Policy carefully before you start to use the Site to understand our policies and practices regarding how we treat your information. By accessing or using the Site in any manner, you accept and agree to be bound by this Privacy Policy. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY, YOU MAY NOT ACCESS OR USE THE SITE FOR ANY PURPOSE.

This Privacy Policy may change from time to time (see Updates to Our Privacy Policy, below). Your continued use of the Site after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

Privacy of Children


The Site is not intended for or directed to children. No one under age 16 may provide any information to or on the Site. We do not knowingly collect or solicit personal information from children under age 16. If you are younger than 16 years of age, do not use or provide any information on the Site or any of its features or otherwise provide any information about yourself to us, including your name, address, telephone number, email address, or any screen name or user name you may use. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under age 16, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from a child younger than 16 years of age, please contact us at info@nutcrackerx.com.

When you access the Site, we collect certain information about you. This may include information by which you may be personally identified, such as name, postal address, e-mail address, or telephone number, as well as information that is about you but may not specifically identify you, such as information about your internet connection, the equipment you use to access the Site, and usage details, IP addresses, and certain other information collected through cookies and other tracking technologies (collectively "personal information").

Information You Provide Us

We collect personal information from various sources, such as directly from you when you access or use the Site. This may include:

  • Information that you provide by filling in forms on the Site. This includes information provided when applying for employment with us through the Site.

  • Records and copies of your correspondence (including email addresses), if you contact us.

Information We Collect by Automatic Means

When you navigate through and interact with the Site, we may use automatic data collection technologies to collect certain information about your equipment, browsing, actions, and patterns, including:

  • information about the devices you use to access the Site (such as the IP address and the type of the device, operating system, and web browser);
  • dates, times, and duration of use of the Site (including whether you are a repeat or first time visitor);
  • other information relating to your visits to the Site, including traffic data, location data, and logs; and

In some cases, information we collect automatically may be statistical data that does not include personal information. We may maintain or associate any such statistical data with personal information we collect in other ways or receive from third parties. It helps us to estimate our audience size and usage patterns, speed up user experience, and to improve the Site, including enabling us to identify users. To the extent that we associate any of this non-personal information with your personal information, we will treat it as personal information under the terms of this Privacy Policy.

Technologies we use for automatic data collection may include cookies. A cookie is a small file placed on the hard drive of your computer. Pages of our Site and our emails may also contain small electronic files known as web beacons (also referred to as clear gifs, pixel tags, and single-pixel gifs) that permit us, for example, to count users who have visited those pages or opened an email and for other related website statistics (for example, recording the popularity of certain website content and verifying system and server integrity).

Third-Party Use of Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies


Some content or applications on the Site may be served by third-parties, including content and application providers. These third parties may use cookies alone or in conjunction with web beacons or other tracking technologies to collect information about you when you use our Site. The information they collect may be associated with your personal information or they may collect information, including personal information, about your online activities over time and across different websites and other online services. They may use this information to provide you with interest-based (behavioral) advertising or other targeted content. We do not control these third parties' tracking technologies or how they may be used. If you have any questions about any targeted content, you should contact the responsible provider directly.

Third Party Vendors


We may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate our Site, to process data, and to perform IT support and other Site-related services (collectively, “Third Party Providers”). These Third Party Providers may have access to your personal information for purposes of performing these tasks on our behalf, and may have the right to retain and use personal information or other information through performance of these tasks on an aggregated and de-identified basis in accordance with the terms of the applicable Third Party Provider’s privacy policy. We advise you to review the privacy policies of the Third Party Providers, but note that we have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any Third Party Providers, their sites or services.

Third Party Providers may include, without limitation, the following:

Analytics. We may use Third Party Providers to monitor and analyze use of the Site, including as follows:

  • Google Analytics. Google Analytics is an independent web analytics service offered by Google that tracks and reports website traffic. Google uses the data collected to track and monitor the use of our Site. This data is shared with other Google services. Google may use the collected data to contextualize and personalize the ads of its own advertising network. You can learn about Google’s privacy practices at https://www.google.com/intl/en/policies/privacy.
  • You may opt out of the aggregation and analysis of data collected about you on the Site by Google Analytics by downloading the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/. Please note that if you opt out, analytics companies other than Google Analytics may continue to aggregate and analyze data collected about you on the Site.

Other Service Providers. We also use Third Party Providers for marketing, technical, operational, and other services, including as follows:


Security


Nutcracker Therapeutics takes protecting your information seriously, and implements reasonable measures to secure your personal information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, and disclosure. Please note, however, that the electronic transmission of information is not completely secure. We cannot guarantee that the security measures we have in place to safeguard information will never be defeated or fail, or that such measures will always be sufficient or effective. Any transmission of information is at your own risk.

Information and Data Transfers


The Site is administered by Nutcracker Therapeutics in the United States. When we obtain information about you through your access to or use of the Site or when you input information to the Site from somewhere other than the United States, we may transfer, process, and store such information in the United States. If you access the Site from outside the United States, you do so on your own initiative, at your sole risk, and you are responsible for compliance with all applicable laws. If you are a non-United States resident and provide us with your personal information, you consent to the transfer to and processing of such information in the United States, which may have data protection laws less stringent than those in the country in which you reside.

Your Choices


We strive to provide you with choices regarding the personal information you provide to us. We have created mechanisms to provide you with the following control over your information:

Cookies. You can set your browser to refuse all or some browser cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If you disable or refuse cookies, please note that some parts of the Site may then be inaccessible or not function properly.

Emails. Nutcracker Therapeutics may send notifications, newsletters, promotional information and other communications to you via email. Promotional email communications and newsletters will contain instructions describing how you can opt out of receiving future promotional emails from us. If you opt out of promotional emails and/or newsletters, you may continue to receive non-promotional emails from us.

Limiting Provided Information. You can choose not to provide us with certain information. If you decline to provide certain information, however, please note that some features of the Site may then be inaccessible.

“Do Not Track” Requests

We adhere to the standards set out in this Privacy Policy and do not monitor or respond to Do Not Track browser requests.

Third Party Applications and Websites


The Site may contain links enabling the electronic transfer of data from third-party applications to the Site, as well as links to third-party websites. Nutcracker Therapeutics is not responsible for the privacy practices or content of these applications or websites, and linking to an application or website does not constitute endorsement by us of that application or website. You should review the privacy policy and terms and conditions of any such third-party application or website prior to using or providing information to the same.

Accessing and Correcting Your Information


You may send us an email at info@nutcrackerx.com to request access to, correct, or delete any personal information that you have provided to us. We may not accommodate a request to change information if we believe the change would violate any law or legal requirement or cause the information to be incorrect.

Your European and UK Privacy Rights


If you are a resident of the European Union or the UK, you are entitled to certain information and have certain rights under the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679) (the “GDPR”) or the UK GDPR adopted post Brexit (also referred to herein for convenience as simply the “GDPR”). Those rights include:

  • the right of access to your information.
  • the right to rectify your information if it is incorrect or incomplete.
  • the right to have your information erased (“right to be forgotten”) if certain grounds are met.
  • the right to withdraw your consent to our processing of your information at any time (if our processing is based on consent).
  • the right to object to our processing of your information (if processing is based on legitimate interests).
  • the right to object to our processing of your information for direct marketing purposes.
  • the right to receive your information from us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and the right to transmit your information to another controller without hindrance from us (data portability).

If you are located in the European Union or the UK and you are or have been a user of our services, we may send you marketing communications based on our legitimate interests, subject always to your right to opt out of such communications. Further, if you are located in the European Union, we will never share your information with a third party for such third party’s marketing purposes, unless you have specifically consented to us doing so.

You may contact us at info@nutcrackerx.com to exercise any of the above rights. We may request specific information from you to confirm your identity, and in some circumstances, we may charge a reasonable fee for access to your information.

Furthermore, if you believe that our processing of your information is inconsistent with your data protection rights under the GDPR and we have not adequately addressed your concerns, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authority of your country.

For purposes of the GDPR, we are a “controller” and you are a “data subject.”
