Privacy Policy

Last updated: February 13, 2014

We at Matinas BioPharma Inc. (“Matinas BioPharma,” “we,” “us,” or “our”) created this Privacy Policy (“Privacy Policy”) because we know that you care about how information you provide to us is used and shared.  This Privacy Policy relates to our collection and use of your information through our website located at http://www.matinasbiopharma.com (the “Site”). 

By visiting our Site, you are agreeing to the terms of this Privacy Policy and the accompanying Terms of Use. Capitalized terms not defined in this Privacy Policy shall have the meaning set forth in our Terms of Use.

If you do not want us to collect, use and share your personal information as described in this Privacy Policy, please do not provide us with any of your personal information. 

Information We Collect   

We do not collect any personal information from you unless you voluntarily provide it to us.  

When you sign up to receive company press releases and alerts via email, you will be asked to provide us with certain personal information, such as your first name, last name, and email address. In this Privacy Policy, we refer to this information as “Personal Information.”

Like most web sites, we use automatic data collection technology when you visit the Site to record information that identifies your computer, to track your use of the Site, and to collect certain basic information about you and your surfing habits. This information includes information about your operating system, your IP addresses, browser type and language, referring and exit pages and URLs, keywords, date and time, amount of time spent on particular pages, what sections of a website you visit, and similar information concerning your use of the Site (the “Usage Information”). 

We may collect this Usage Information by using cookies and pixel tags (also called web beacons or clear gifs). Cookies are small packets of data that a web site stores on your computer’s hard drive so that your computer will “remember” information about your visit. Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web site users.  You can reject cookies by following the directions provided in your Internet provider’s “help” file.  If you reject cookies, you may still visit the Site, but may not be able to use some areas of the Site.

We do not collect Personal Information in this way, but if you’ve provided us with Personal Information we may associate that information with the information that is collected automatically. Automatic data collection may be performed on our behalf by our services providers.

How We Use Your Information

We will use your Personal Information and Usage Information for the following purposes:

  • To respond to your inquiries and contact you about changes to this Site;
  • For any other purposes disclosed at the time the information is collected or to which you consent; and
  • As otherwise specifically described in this Privacy Policy.

We may also use your information to improve our Site, and may use cookies and other information to enable us to customize your user experience.

We, like many businesses, sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions.  Examples include mailing information, maintaining databases, hosting services, and processing payments.  When we employ another company to perform a function of this nature, we provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function, which may include Personal Information.  We require such third parties to maintain the confidentiality of such information and use such information only as necessary to provide us with designated services.

If we or all or substantially all of our assets are acquired, we expect that the information that we have collected, including Personal Information, would be transferred along with our other business assets.

We may disclose your information to government authorities, and to other third parties when compelled to do so by government authorities, at our discretion, or otherwise as required by law, including but not limited to in response to court orders and subpoenas. We also may disclose your information when we have reason to believe that someone is or may be causing injury to or interference with our rights or property, other users of this Site, or anyone else that could be harmed by such activities.

How We Protect Your Information

We take commercially reasonable steps to protect the Personal Information and the Usage Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, e-mail sent to or from us may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. 

Your Choices

If you wish to stop receiving e-mails from us, please send us a message via info@matinasbiopharma.com. You may also choose to unsubscribe from our emails by following the instructions in the bottom of the email.

Links

This Site may contain content, services, advertising and other materials that link to web sites operated by third parties.  We have no control over those other sites, and this Privacy Policy does not apply to them. 

Important Notice to Non-U.S. Residents

The Site is operated in the United States.  If you are located outside of the United States, please be aware that any information you provide to us will be transferred to the United States.  By providing us with any information, you consent to this transfer. 

Children

We do not knowingly collect Personal Information from children under the age of 13 through the Site.  If you are under 13, please do not give us any Personal Information.  We encourage parents and legal guardians to monitor their children’s Internet usage and to help enforce our Privacy Policy by instructing their children to never provide Personal Information through any website without their permission.  If you have reason to believe that a child under the age of 13 has provided Personal Information to us, please contact us, and we will endeavor to delete that information from our databases.

Changes to This Privacy Policy

This Privacy Policy is effective as of the date stated at the top of this Privacy Policy.  We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time, and will post any changes on the Site as soon as they go into effect.  By accessing the Site after we make any such changes to this Privacy Policy, you are deemed to have accepted such changes.  Please refer back to this Privacy Policy on a regular basis.
