Last Updated: [May 21, 2021]

Mission Bio, Inc. (“Mission Bio”) and its affiliated entities (together, the “Company,” “we,” “our,” and/or “us”) are committed to protecting the privacy and security of information about you. This Privacy Policy addresses how we collect, use, and share information from or about you on the Mission Bio website or a related website controlled by the Company (our “Site”), via Mission Bio’s devices and device-related software (collectively, our “Platform”), or in the provision of any other software, applications or services (collectively, our “Services”). This Privacy Policy explains how we collect, use, and share Personal Information about users of our Services (“Users”) to include individuals who have successfully completed the account registration process (“Account Holders”). For the purpose of this Privacy Policy, “Personal Information” or “information” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

By using our Services, you agree to the collection, use, disclosure, and procedures this Privacy Policy describes. Please be sure to read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information through our Services. Beyond the Privacy Policy, your use of our Services is also subject to our Terms of Use.

1. INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We may collect a variety of information from or about you or your devices from various sources, as described below.

1.1. INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE TO US

Registration and Profile Information. When you sign up for an account, register with us for access to our Services, sign up for notifications or updates, or participate in our surveys, we may ask you for information such as your name, address, telephone number, industry, institution’s name, job title, country and e-mail address. Account Holders have the opportunity to (i) create a profile (“Profile”); (ii) add information, data, and connections to our Services, including genetic information; and (iii) download Tapestri Insights™ software and publicly available data sets.

Communications. If you contact us directly, we may receive additional information about you. For example, when you contact our Customer Support team, we may require your first and last name, institution, industry, work email address, your general location (country, state, and ZIP code), the contents of a message or attachments that you may send to us, and other information you choose to provide. If you subscribe to our newsletter, then we may collect certain information from you, such as your email address and phone number. When we send you emails, we may track whether you open them to learn how to deliver a better customer experience and improve our Services.

We will collect the information you choose to provide on your resume, such as your education and employment experience. You may also apply through LinkedIn. If you do so, we will collect the information you make available to us on LinkedIn or other recruitment resources.

Please do not provide us with any health-related information such as medical conditions, names of providers, treatments, and other care information regarding yourself or any third party (such as a patient or research subject), particularly if such data can be linked to a particular individual.

Certain uses of our Services may require that you provide certain requested information, and if you do not provide such information, you may not be able to use our Services.

1.2. INFORMATION WE COLLECT WHEN YOU USE OUR SERVICES

We (including third parties that we work with) may place cookies on your device for security purposes, to facilitate navigation of our services, and to personalize your experience while using our Services.

Most web browsers and our applications are initially set up to accept cookies. You can reset your web browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.

2. WHAT COOKIES DO WE USE

Below is an overview of the types of cookies we and third parties may use to collect information.

  • Strictly Necessary Cookies. Some cookies are strictly necessary to make the Services available to you. We cannot provide you with the Services without this type of cookies.
  • Functional cookies. These are used to recognize you when you return to the Services. This enables us to adapt our content for you, and remember your preferences (for example, your choice of language or region).
  • Analytical or Performance cookies. We also use cookies for website and app analytics purposes in order to operate, maintain and improve our Services. We may use our own analytics cookies or use third party analytics providers to collect and process certain analytics data on our behalf. These providers may also collect information about your use of other websites, apps, and online resources.

Where required by applicable law, we obtain your consent to use cookies. You can find more information about your rights and choices, and how to block the use of certain cookies in the section “Your Rights and Choices” below.

3. LEGAL BASES FOR PROCESSING EUROPEAN INFORMATION

If you are located in the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom, we only process your information when we have a valid “legal basis”, including when:

  • Consent. You have consented to the use of your information, for example to use Cookies.
  • Contractual necessity. We need your information to provide you with the Services, for example to respond to your inquiries.
  • Compliance with a legal obligation. We have a legal obligation to use your information, for example to comply with tax and accounting obligations.
  • Legitimate interests. We or a third party have a legitimate interest in using your information. In particular, we have a legitimate interest in using your information for product development and internal analytics purposes, and otherwise to improve the safety, security, and performance of our Services. We only rely on our or a third party’s legitimate interests to process your information when these interests are not overridden by your rights and interests.

4. HOW WE SHARE THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT

We do not share or otherwise disclose information we collect from or about you except as described below or otherwise disclosed to you at the time of the collection. We may disclose your information to the following entities:

  • Affiliates. We may share any information we receive with our affiliates for any of the purposes described in this Privacy Policy. “Affiliates” refers to companies related to Mission Bio by common ownership or control.
  • Vendors and Service Providers.

  • Advertising Partners. We may also work with third party marketing and advertising companies. These companies may collect and use information about your use of our Services in order to provide advertisements about goods and services that may be of interest to you or for direct marketing campaigns. Advertisements may be shown via our Services or third party websites. These companies may place or recognize a unique cookie on your computer or device or use other similar technologies.

For the avoidance of doubt, the disclosure of your information may occur if you post any objectionable content on or through the Services.
  • Corporate Transactions. We may also transfer your information to service providers, advisors, potential transactional partners, or other third parties in connection with the consideration, negotiation, or completion of a corporate transaction in which we are acquired by or merged with another company or we sell, liquidate, or transfer all or a portion of our assets. The use of your information following any of these events will be governed by the provisions of this Privacy Policy in effect at the time the applicable information was collected.

Sharing Preferences. Please remember that any content you or any user uploads to our Services may be publicly available to other users by default, and may be collected and used by these other users, and transferred, or made public, without our consent. In particular, be careful not to include or attach any identifiers including, for example, labeling a file with an individual’s name, identifier, date of service, or other similar information. Any use or further disclosure of any content by another user of our Services is not a use or disclosure by us. We do not control the policies and practices of any third party sites or services.

Additionally, when you share information with third parties, that information may be passed along or made public by others. Therefore, anyone with access to such information can potentially use it for any purpose, including sending unsolicited communications.

Marketing Communications. You can unsubscribe from our promotional emails via the link provided in the emails. Even if you opt out of receiving promotional messages from us, you will continue to receive administrative messages from us.

Do Not Track. There is no accepted standard on how to respond to Do Not Track signals, and we do not respond to such signals.

However, if you use your browser settings to block all cookies (including essential Cookies) you may not be able to access all or parts of our Services. By using our Services you consent to our use of cookies and our processing of information collected through such cookies, in accordance with this Privacy Policy. You may withdraw your consent at any time by deleting placed cookies and disabling cookies in your browser, or as explained below. You can change your browser settings to block or notify you when you receive a cookie, delete cookies or browse our Services using your browser’s anonymous usage setting. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about how to adjust or modify your browser settings. If you do not agree to our use of cookies or similar technologies which store information on your device, you should change your browser settings accordingly. You should understand that some features of our Services may not function properly if you do not accept cookies or these technologies. Where required by applicable law, you will be asked to consent to certain cookies and similar technologies before we use or install them on your computer or other device.

Your European Privacy Rights. If you are located in the European Economic Area or the United Kingdom, you have the additional rights described below.

  • You may request access to the information we maintain about you, update and correct inaccuracies in your information, restrict or object to the processing of your information, have the information anonymized or deleted, as appropriate, or exercise your right to data portability to easily transfer your information to another company. In addition, you also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority, including in your country of residence, place of work or where an incident took place.
  • You may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us regarding the processing of your information, at any time and free of charge. We will apply your preferences going forward and this will not affect the lawfulness of the processing before you withdrew your consent.
    You may exercise these rights by contacting us using the contact details at the end of this Privacy Policy. Before meeting your request, we may ask you to provide reasonable information to verify your identity. Please note that there are exceptions and limitations to each of these rights, and that while any changes you make will be reflected in active user databases instantly or within a reasonable period of time, we may retain information for backups, archiving, prevention of fraud and abuse, analytics, satisfaction of legal obligations, or where we otherwise reasonably believe that we have a legitimate reason to do so.

7. THIRD PARTIES

Our Services may contain links to other websites, products, or services that we do not own or operate. We are not responsible for the privacy practices of these third parties. Please be aware that this Privacy Policy does not apply to your activities on these third party services or any information you disclose to these third parties. We encourage you to read their privacy policies before providing any information to them.

8. RETENTION

We take measures to delete your information or keep it in a form that does not permit identifying you when this information is no longer necessary for the purposes for which we process it, unless we are required by law to keep this information for a longer period. When determining the specific retention period, we take into account various criteria, such as the type of service provided to you, the nature and length of our relationship with you, and mandatory retention periods provided by law and the statute of limitations.

9. SECURITY

We make reasonable efforts to protect your information by physical and electronic safeguards designed to improve the security of the information we maintain. However, as no electronic transmission or storage of information can be entirely secure, we cannot and do not guarantee the security or privacy of your information.

If you choose to use the Services from the European Union or other regions of the world with laws governing data collection and use that may differ from U.S. law, then please note that you are transferring your information outside of those regions to the United States for storage and processing.
