Gala Therapeutics Privacy Policy

Last Updated: July 16, 2019

This Privacy Policy (“Policy”) describes the manner in which Gala Therapeutics, Inc. (“Gala”, “we,” or “us”) and our website at www.galatherapeutics.com (the “Site”) use and collect data from individuals.  This Policy, which is incorporated into and is subject to the Gala Therapeutics Website Terms of Use www.galatherapeutics.com/ describes the information that we gather from you on the Site, how we use and disclose such information, and the steps we take to protect such information. 

Information We Collect on the Site:

  • User-provided Information.  When you use the Site, we may collect information about you, including your name, email address, mailing address, or preferences and we may link this information with other information about you. You may provide us with information in various ways on the Site. For example, you provide us with information when you send us communications through the “Contact Us” feature on the Site.

  • Cookies and Automatically Collected Information. When you use the Site, we may send one or more cookies – small text files containing a string of alphanumeric characters – to your device.  We 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 Site. Please review your web browser “Help” file to learn the proper way to modify your cookie settings. Please note that if you delete, or choose not to accept, cookies from the Site, you may not be able to utilize the features of the Site to their fullest potential.  We may use third party cookies on our Site as well.  For instance, we use Google Analytics to collect and process certain analytics data.  Google provides some additional privacy options described at www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/ regarding Google Analytics cookies.  Gala does not process or respond to web browsers’ “do not track” signals or other similar transmissions that indicate a request to disable online tracking of users who visit our Site or who use our Site.

We may also automatically record certain information from your device by using various types of technology, including “clear gifs” or “web beacons.” This automatically collected information may include your IP address or other device address or ID, web browser and/or device type, the web pages or sites that you visit just before or just after you use the Site, the pages or other content you view or otherwise interact with on the Site, and the dates and times that you visit, access, or use the Site. We also may use these technologies to collect information regarding your interaction with email messages, such as whether you opened, clicked on, or forwarded a message. This information is gathered from all users, and may be connected with other information about you.

  • Third Party Web Beacons and Third Party Buttons. We may display third-party content on the Site, including third-party advertising.  Third-party content may use cookies, web beacons, or other mechanisms for obtaining data in connection with your viewing of the third party content on the Site. Additionally, we may implement third party buttons (such as Facebook “like” or “share” buttons) that may function as web beacons even when you do not interact with the button. Information collected through third-party web beacons and buttons is collected directly by these third parties, not by Gala. Information collected by a third party in this manner is subject to that third party’s own data collection, use, and disclosure policies.

  • Information from Other Sources. We may obtain information from third parties and sources other than the Site, such as our partners and advertisers.

How We Use the Information We Collect. We use information we collect on the Site in a variety of ways in providing the Site and operating our business, including the following: 

  • We use the information that we collect on the Site to operate, maintain, enhance and provide all features of the Site, to provide services and information that you request, to respond to comments and questions and otherwise to provide support to users.

  • We use the information that we collect on the Site to understand and analyze the usage trends and preferences of our users, to improve the Site, and to develop new products, services, features, and functionality.

  • We may use your email address or other information we collect to contact you for administrative purposes such as customer service or to send communications, including updates on promotions and events, relating to products and services offered by us.

  • We may use cookies and automatically collected information to: (i) personalize our Site, such as remembering information about you so that you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit the Site; (ii) monitor and analyze the effectiveness of the Site; and (iii) monitor aggregate site usage metrics such as total number of visitors and pages viewed.

When We Disclose Information. Except as described in this Policy, we will not disclose information about you that we collect on the Site to third parties without your consent. We may disclose information to third parties if you consent to us doing so, as well as in the following circumstances:

  • We work with third party service providers to provide website, application development, hosting, maintenance, and other services for us. These third parties may have access to or process information about you as part of providing those services for us. Generally, we limit the information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions, and we require them to agree to maintain the confidentiality of such information.

  • We may disclose information about you 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, in response to a court order, judicial or other government subpoena or warrant, or to otherwise cooperate with law enforcement or other governmental agencies.

  • We also reserve the right to disclose information about you that we believe, in good faith, is appropriate or necessary to: (i) take precautions against liability; (ii) protect ourselves or others from fraudulent, abusive, or unlawful uses or activity; (iii) investigate and defend ourselves against any third-party claims or allegations; (iv) protect the security or integrity of the Site and any facilities or equipment used to make the Site available; or (v) protect our property or other legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of our agreements), or the rights, property, or safety of others.

  • Information about our users may be disclosed and otherwise transferred to an acquirer, successor, or assignee as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of assets, or similar transaction, or in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which information is transferred to one or more third parties as one of our business assets.
