This Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) was last updated and effective on December 17, 2018.

Neurogene respects the privacy of all individuals who visit our website.  This Privacy Policy applies to all of your use of Neurogene’s website, http://neurogene.com (the “Website”).  It describes how your personal information will be treated as you use the Website.  Our Privacy Policy is not a contract, and it does not create any legal rights or obligations.  We may amend this policy at any time.  When this policy is changed, the date of the latest revision will appear at the top of this page.  Other sites (including those we link to and other third-party sites) may have their own policies, which we do not control, and thus are not addressed or controlled by this policy.

Information We Collect About You

Generally, you are not required to provide information about yourself when you visit our Website.  You may provide certain personal information if you send email or other information to us, such as a resume to apply for an open position, or an inquiry about potential partnership activities.

We also collect information automatically that may be connected to you from the servers used to support the Website.  This information includes:

  • The internet protocol (IP address) from which you access the Website;
  • Information about the device you use to access the Website;
  • Information about the web browser you use to access the Website; and
  • Information about applications on your device that are necessary to support the Website.

We use various technical means to collect this information, including application logs on your device or computer, server logs, “cookies” placed on your device or computer, “beacons” in email, and other content. Cookies are small files that many websites place on your hard drive that allow those websites to identify you.  For example, if you allow a website to remember your login name or password, that website places a cookie on your computer.  We may place cookies on your computer to allow us to identify you during future visits to our Website.  We may use cookies to measure web traffic and to customize your visit.  Most web browsers are set to automatically accept cookies.  However, if you do not wish to receive cookies, or want to be notified of when they are placed, your browser may permit you to do so.  In many web browsers, you can change the browser settings to warn you before accepting cookies or to block cookies.  If you block cookies, you may not be able to use certain features or functions of this Website, or this Website may not operate in optimal mode. A beacon is an electronic tracking mechanism that usually consists of a single-pixel image. It can be embedded in a web page or in an email to transmit information, which could include personal information. For example, it allows an email sender to determine whether a user has opened a particular email.

We may also use Google Analytics or other similar software or services to gather certain information in connection with the use of the Website.  When we use Google Analytics, your web browser automatically sends certain information to Google about your use of the Website, such as the web address of the page you’re visiting and your IP address.  If you don’t want Analytics to be used in your browser, you can install the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on by visiting https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. For more information on how Google Analytics collects, protects, uses, and shares your data, visit https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245.

Information you provide to us may be stored in the United States (“U.S.”) or other jurisdictions that do not provide the same degree of protection for your information as that provided by the U.S.

How We Use and Share Your Information

Neurogene does not disclose, give, or sell any personally identifiable information you provide in an email inquiry form to any outside organizations for any reason (other than as described below). We may use any information we collect about you or about your use of the Website in connection with the operation of our business, as well as to improve the Website or to communicate with you about products, features, or services we provide, and offers that we believe may be of interest to you or otherwise in connection with our management of the Website.  We may also use information we collect about you for the following purposes:

  • Security and protection of personnel, assets, and resources;
  • Regulatory compliance and monitoring; and
  • Compliance with legal requirements or to defend or pursue legal claims.

We may personalize your experience by using your use of the Website to shape any recommendations we may make about content (including advertising) that might be of interest to you. We may also monitor traffic patterns and Website usage to help us develop the design and layout of the Website. We use application logs on your device and our server as well as “cookies” and other tracking technologies for the purposes described above as well as to enhance the functionality of the Website.  This information may be stored in files on your device that we access.

We may also use the information we collect to occasionally notify you about functionality changes to the Website.  We may create from information we collect from you anonymous demographic information that is not unique to you, such as your ZIP code, domicile, age, gender, preferences, and interests.  We may use or permit use of this information with affiliates, advertisers, business partners, or unaffiliated third parties for our or their business purposes.

We may employ independent contractors, consultants, vendors, and suppliers, such as third-party service providers, call centers, mail houses, or any other third party who may need to receive or handle your personal information on our behalf (collectively, “Outside Contractors”) in connection with the performance of obligations under this Privacy Policy and to provide specific services and products related to the Website and our business.  In the course of providing products or services to us, these Outside Contractors may sometimes have access to information collected through the Website, including your personal information.

We reserve the right to disclose information we have about you to regulatory authorities, law enforcement agencies, or as required by applicable law.

Business Transfers

We may share personally identifiable information with a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of the Company’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personally identifiable information held by the Company about our Service users is among the assets transferred.

Choices You Have About Our Use of Your Information

You can write to us at any time to obtain a copy of your information and to have any inaccuracies corrected or if you no longer wish to be registered on the Website.  Where appropriate, you may have your personal information erased, rectified, amended, or completed.  In order to contact us regarding your information, you may send us an email at privacy@neurogene.com.

Security and Our Efforts to Protect Your Information

WHILE WE HAVE IMPLEMENTED MEASURES DESIGNED TO PROTECT AGAINST THE UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, INTERCEPTION, LOSS, MISUSE, AND/OR ALTERATION OF THE INFORMATION UNDER OUR CONTROL, OUR SYSTEMS ARE NOT DESIGNED TO PROTECT INDIVIDUALLY IDENTIFIABLE HEALTH INFORMATION, INCLUDING PROTECTED HEALTH INFORMATION (“PHI”), OR OTHER CONFIDENTIAL OR SENSITIVE INFORMATION, AND WE DO NOT GUARANTEE THAT EVENTS OF UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, INTERCEPTIONS, LOSS, MISUSE, AND/OR ALTERNATION UNDER OUR CONTROL WILL NOT OCCUR.  IN THE EVENT OF ANY UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, INTERCEPTION, OR MISUSE, WE WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR SUCH UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, INTERCEPTION, OR MISUSE, OR ANY DIRECT, INDIRECT, SPECIAL, INCIDENTAL, CONSEQUENTIAL, OR OTHER DAMAGES (INCLUDING LOST PROFITS) SUFFERED BY A USER, EVEN IF WE HAVE PREVIOUSLY BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH DAMAGES. WE DO NOT WARRANT, EITHER EXPRESSLY OR IMPLIEDLY, THAT THE INFORMATION PROVIDED BY ANY USER SHALL BE FREE FROM UNAUTHORIZED ACCESS, INTERCEPTION, OR MISUSE.  ACCORDINGLY, YOU SHOULD USE THE WEBSITE WITH THE EXPRESS UNDERSTANDING THAT ANY INFORMATION YOU PROVIDE MAY BE COMPROMISED.

Confidential Information and Sensitive Personal Information

The Website is not designed to handle any confidential information (including any individually identifiable health information or PHI that is subject to any security requirements under any law), nor is the Website designed to handle information that may not be confidential, but is sensitive personal information such as race or ethnic origin, political opinions, personal finances, religious or other similar beliefs, trade unions membership, physical or mental health, educational records, sexual life, or criminal record.  You should not use the Website to submit or handle confidential information or sensitive personal information.

Links to Third Party Websites

The Website may contain links to other websites.  These third-party sites may send their own cookies to users to collect data or solicit personal information.  Please be aware that other sites are not subject to this Privacy Policy and Neurogene is not responsible for the privacy practices of these other sites.  We encourage our users to be aware when they leave our site and to read the privacy statements of each and every website that collects personally identifiable information.  This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected by the Website.

Children’s Privacy

The Website is not directed to children under the age of 13.  We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under the age of 13. If a user identifies themselves as a child under the age of 13, we will not collect, store, or use any personal information.  If we receive personal information that we discover was provided by a child under the age of 13, we will promptly destroy such information.

Transfer of Information Across National Borders

You expressly consent to the transfer of your personal information to, and the collection and processing of such personal information in the U.S. and other countries or territories where we or our vendors operate.  In giving this consent, you acknowledge that you understand that the laws on holding, processing, using, and transferring personal information in the U.S. may vary and be less protective of your privacy than laws of your state or country.
