Arima Genomics, Inc. (“Arima” or “We”) values your privacy and the privacy of our other customers and visitors to our Websites, located at www.arimagenomics.com (collectively, with any successor websites, the “Websites”). Visitors to the Websites are, collectively, referred to herein as “Users.”
This Privacy Notice describes what information Arima gathers from you via the Websites, how we use that information, and what we do to protect it. By using the Websites, you expressly consent to the information handling practices described in this notice.
In the Information Arima Collects
“Personally Identifiable Information” means information that allows someone to identify or contact you, including, for example, your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing information. “Anonymous Information” means Information that is not associated with or linked to your Personal Information; Anonymous Information does not, by itself, permit the identification of individual persons. We collect Personal Information and Anonymous Information, as described below.
User-provided Information: You may provide to Arima Personally Identifiable Information when using the Websites. For example, if you register to join our mailing list, we will ask for information such as your name, organization, telephone number, and e-mail address so that we can send you the requested communications. You may also provide Personally Identifiable Information if you contact us through the Websites with questions or comments.
Employment Information: You may provide us with Personally Identifiable Information, such as that contained on a resume or a curriculum vitae, in connection with a job application or inquiry. We may use this information throughout Arima for the purpose of employment consideration or your inquiry. We may keep your information on file for future consideration.
“Cookies” Information: When you visit the Websites, we may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your computer. Arima may use both session cookies and persistent cookies. A session cookie disappears after you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains after you close your browser and may be used by your browser on subsequent visits to the Websites. Persistent cookies can be removed. Please review your web browser “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings.
“Automatically Collected” Information: When you visit the Websites, we may automatically record certain information from your web browser by using different types of technology, including “clear gifs” or “web beacons.” This “automatically collected” information may include Internet Protocol address (“IP Address”), web browser type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after the Websites, the pages you view on the Websites, and the dates and times that you visit the Websites.
The Way Arima Uses Information
Arima uses the information you provide or that we collect to operate, maintain, enhance, and provide all of the features, information and services found on the Websites. We will use your email address, without further consent, for marketing purposes.
Arima uses all of the information that we collect to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of visitors to the Websites, to improve the way the Websites works and looks, and to create new features and functionality.
Arima may use “automatically collected” information and “cookies” information to: (a) remember your information so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Websites; and (b) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.
Arima will not use your email address or other Personally Identifiable Information to send promotional messages if you have opted out or otherwise requested that Arima no longer contact you about the Arima products and services or other information.
We may create Anonymous Data records from Personally Identifiable Information by excluding information (such as your name) that makes the data personally identifiable to you. We use this Anonymous Data to analyze request and usage patterns so that we may enhance the content of our Services and improve Websites navigation. We reserve the right to use Anonymous Information for any purpose and disclose Anonymous Information to third parties in our sole discretion.
When Arima Discloses Information
Arima does not sell, trade, rent or share your Personally Identifiable Information with other organizations for their marketing or promotional uses without your express consent.
Arima works with some authorized service providers to provide hosting for the Websites and maintenance as well as other services for us. Arima requires these service providers to safeguard Personally Identifiable Information you provide to us. To the extent it is necessary for these service providers to complete their contractual obligations to Arima; these third parties may have access to or process your Personally Identifiable Information. Arima generally limits the use of your Personally Identifiable Information to the purpose for which it was shared.
Arima may also disclose information if required to do so by law or in the good-faith belief that such action is necessary to comply with state and federal laws or respond to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena, or warrant. In some cases, we may make such disclosures without first providing notice to Users.
Arima also reserves the right to disclose information that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to take precautions against liability; to protect Arima from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses; to investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; to assist government enforcement agencies; to protect the security or integrity of the Websites; or to protect the rights, property, or personal safety of Arima, our Users, or others.
You may, of course, decline to share your personally identifiable information with Arima, in which case Arima will not be able to provide to you some of the features and functionality found on the Websites.
We may periodically send you free newsletters and e-mails that directly promote the use of our Websites or Services. When you receive newsletters or promotional communications from us, you may indicate a preference to stop receiving further communications from us and you will have the opportunity to “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in the e-mail you receive or by contacting us directly (please see contact information below).
If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to accept Cookies from our Service for any of the purposes described above, then you can instruct your browser, by changing its settings, to stop accepting Cookies or to prompt you before accepting a Cookie from the websites you visit. Consult your browser’s technical information. If you do not accept Cookies, however, you may not be able to use all portions of the Service or all functionality of the Service. If you have any questions about how to disable or modify Cookies, please let us know at the contact information provided below.
We generally retain personal data for as long as needed for the specific business purpose or purposes for which it was collected. In some cases, we may be required to retain personal data for a longer period of time based on laws or regulations that apply to our business or for other necessary business purposes. Where possible, we aim to anonymize the information or remove unnecessary identifiers from records that we may need to keep for periods beyond the original retention period.
You may access, correct, and/or update your information by accessing your accounts or profiles on the Online Services. Alternately, you may at any time request access to information that we hold about you; you may also request corrections, updates, or deletion of your information. We will make reasonable efforts to respond promptly to such requests in accordance with applicable laws. You can make a request by contacting email@example.com. Also, if you are a data subject in the European Economic Area you can obtain an Individual Rights Request form by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org.
Personally identifiable information collected on the Websites may be stored and processed in the United States or any other country in which Arima or its affiliates, subsidiaries or agents maintain facilities, and by using the Websites you consent to any such transfer of information outside of your country, where laws regarding processing of Personally Identifiable Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country.
The Event of Merger or Sale
In the event that Arima is acquired by or merged with a third-party entity, we reserve the right, in any of these circumstances, to transfer or assign the information that we have collected from Users as part of such merger, acquisition, sale, or other change of control.
