Privacy Policy

BlackThorn Therapeutics, Inc. (“BlackThorn,” “we,” “us” or “our) created and maintains the BlackThorn website (the “Website”), currently located at www.BlackThorn.com, and other online services owned or controlled by BlackThorn (collectively, the “Services”). This Privacy Policy, describes how BlackThorn collects, uses, discloses and secures information collected from or about you through the Services. By using the Services, you consent to the terms of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy, you may not use the Services. BlackThorn may update this Privacy Policy from time-to-time in our sole discretion in accordance with the modification provision of the Terms of Use. Your use of the Service following us posting a new Privacy Policy on the Service signifies that you agree to and accept the Privacy Policy as modified pursuant to the “Modifications of Terms” section of the Terms of Use.

What is Personal Data?

Personal data is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as an address, telephone number, e-mail address, and information about that individual’s activities when directly linked to that person. Personal data also includes demographic information such as date of birth, gender, geographic area and preferences when such information is linked to other personal data that identifies you (“Personal Data”).

Personal Data We Collect:

You may provide Personal Data to us when you interact with us through the Service and/or provide information to BlackThorn. For example, depending on the specific Services, you may provide us with personal information when you:

  1. Contact us by email for any reason (such as to ask a question or provide us with your comments/feedback) and we collect your name and email address from this contact;
  2. Submit your resume or other personal information in response to a job opening posted on the Services.

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

Non-Identifiable Data:

When you interact with BlackThorn through the Service, 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. BlackThorn may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by BlackThorn affiliates, agents or service providers. The Service may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Service, the number of visitors to each page of our Website, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. No Personal Data is available or used in this process.

Cookies:

When you visit the Services, some information is also automatically collected, such as your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, your computer’s operating system, the browser type, the address of a referring web site, and the time and date of your visit and pages visited. This information is collected through the use of “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Service gives to your browser when you access the Service. We use cookies on the Services to help optimize your online experience.

BlackThorn does not require that you accept cookies; however, some functionality on the Services may be disabled if you decline to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.

How we use Personal Data and Other Information:

BlackThorn may use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Service for internal purposes only to help us improve the content and functionality of the Service, to better understand our users and to improve the BlackThorn Services. BlackThorn and its affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below. When we use your personal data, it may be processed on our servers in the United States of America and in other countries, and your information may be processed on a server that lies outside your own country.

Use of Aggregate Information:

Personal Data does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of services or users, from which individual identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and customer needs so that we can better consider new services and tailor existing services to customer desires. We may share aggregated non-personal information with third parties outside of BlackThorn.

Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:

BlackThorn does not sell, rent or share your Personal Data with third parties without your prior consent, except in the limited circumstances described in this Privacy Policy. 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: We may provide your Personal Data and other non-personal information to a third party in connection with the sale, transfer or reorganization of some or all of BlackThorn or its assets, and any such acquirer or transferee will have the right to use and disclose such information subject to the terms of this Privacy Policy.
