Please note that this Website may contain links to other sites and that these sites’ Privacy Policies may differ from our own. This Website’s Privacy Policy does not cover third party data collection practices and AmpliPhi Biosciences does not assume any responsibility for any actions of third parties. You are solely responsible for reading and understanding the privacy and other policies of such web sites, and for complying therewith.

If you are a non U.S. user of the Website, by visiting the Website and providing us with data, you acknowledge and agree that your Personal Information may be processed for the purposes identified in the Privacy Policy. In addition, your Personal Data may be processed in the country in which it was collected and in other countries, including the United States, where laws regarding processing of Personal Information may be less stringent than the laws in your country. By providing your data, you consent to such transfer.

1. What information of yours does AmpliPhi Biosciences collect?

The goal of this Website is to provide you with the information and resources that are most relevant and useful to those interested in our products. To achieve this goal, AmpliPhi Biosciences sometimes needs to collect information to understand what differentiates you from its other users. We collect two types of information from you, “anonymous information” and “personally identifiable information.”

Anonymous information refers to information that cannot be tied back to a specific individual. Anonymous Information does not, by itself, permit the identification of any individual.

In addition to anonymous data, AmpliPhi Biosciences may also collect personally identifiable information. Personally identifiable information refers to information that tells us specifically who you are, such as your name and email address, as well as any other non-public information about you that is associated with or linked to any of the foregoing data. Most of the personal information is gathered when you register for our E-mail Alerts.

If you contact AmpliPhi Biosciences, we may keep a record of that correspondence, including your email address. We use that information so that we may respond to that email, and for future reference.

We also collect other types of Personal Information that you provide to us voluntarily, such as your operating system and version, product registration number, and other requested information if you contact us via e-mail regarding support for the Services.

To make our Website more useful to you, our servers (which may be hosted by a third party service provider) collect information from you, including your browser type, operating system, Internet Protocol (“IP”) address (a number that is automatically assigned to your computer when you use the Internet, which may vary from session to session), domain name, and/or a date/time stamp for your visit.

As is true of most websites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information includes IP addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (“ISP”), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and clickstream data. We use this information to analyze trends, administer the Website, track users’ movements around the Website, gather demographic information about our user base as a whole, and better tailor our Products to our users’ needs. For example, some of the information may be collected so that when you visit the Website, it will recognize you and the information could then be used to serve advertisements and other information appropriate to your interests. Except as noted in this Privacy Policy, we do not link this automatically-collected data to Personal Information. We do not intentionally gather Personal Information from visitors who are under the age of 13. If a child under 13 submits Personal Data to AmpliPhi Biosciences and we learn that the Personal Information is the information of a child under 13, we will attempt to delete the information as soon as possible. If you believe that we might have any Personal Information from a child under 13, please contact us at (858) 800-0829

2. What are “cookies” and how does AmpliPhi Biosciences use them?

Like many online services, we may use cookies to collect information. A “cookie” is a small text file containing information used to identify you and track your movements within the Website. It is transferred from the Website to the hard drive of your computer. A cookie will not allow a web site to learn any personally identifiable information (such as your real name and address) that you have not otherwise disclosed. We may use both session Cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent Cookies (which stay on your computer until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site. This type of information is collected to make the Website more useful to you and to tailor the experience with us to meet your special interests and needs.
