Organovo Privacy Policy

Effective January 28, 2016

Welcome to organovo.com and related web pages that provide a direct link to this Privacy Policy (collectively, the “Sites”), which are owned and operated by Organovo Holdings Inc. (“Organovo” or “we”).  The Sites provide an opportunity for investors, customers, prospective employees, and other adults to learn more about our company.  

This Privacy Policy is designed to explain our practices regarding the collection and use of information received from you and/or your company.  We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting the revised policy at this location.

What information do we collect?

We collect information from you when you subscribe to receive information from Organovo (such as investor alerts or newsletters), request information on a product or partnership opportunity, join our Talent Network, or fill out a form.  When ordering or registering on our site, as appropriate, you may be asked to enter your name, e-mail address, affiliation, or phone number. You may, however, visit our site anonymously.

What do we use your information for?

The email address you provide may be used to send you information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions. At your request, we may send you periodic emails.  

How do we protect your information?

We implement a variety of security measures to maintain the safety of your personal information when you enter, submit, or access your personal information.

Do we use cookies, web beacons, and data analytics tools?

Yes. Through our use of cookies, web beacons gifs, data storage or other similar technologies, we may automatically collect information relating to such matters as:

  • the total number of visits to this website,
  • the number of visitors to each page of this website,
  • the Internet Protocol (IP) addresses of our visitors,
  • the geographic locations (by country) of our visitors,
  • the browsers our visitors used to access our site,
  • the videos viewed and contend downloaded from our site, and
  • the time spent on this website.

We may use this information, which is collected and remains in aggregate form, to understand how our visitors use this website so that we can provide you with a good experience when you browse our website, and also to improve the website. We may also use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers and for purposes of system administration. From time to time, we may share such aggregated information, which does not identify any individual, with our agents, business partners, consultants, or other third parties.

We gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include Internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, Internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp, and/or clickstream data. We do not link this automatically collected data to other information we collect about you.

Cookies are text files stored on a user’s computer hard drive containing information about the user and are used by most major websites. Cookies can enable us to track the interests of our users to enhance their experience on this website and to deliver content specific to a user’s interests. We may place a cookie in the browser file of your computer when you visit this website. Third parties also place cookies on our website and the data is only collected in the aggregate.

You may delete or block cookies by activating the setting on your web browser that allows you to refuse the setting of all or some cookies. Although you may still use this website without the cookie, some parts of the website may not work properly for you.

If you would like further information about managing and disabling cookies, you can refer to your browser’s help section or user guide. Alternatively, the Interactive Advertising Bureau has produced a guide (see www.allaboutcookies.org) which explains how cookies work and can be managed.

We and our affiliates, analytics or service providers use technologies such as cookies, scripts, and tags to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ movements around the website, and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole. We may receive reports based on the use of these technologies by these companies on an individual and aggregate basis. We also use software from Google Analytics for internal analytics that employs a software technology called “clear gifs” (which are also known as Web Beacons/ tracking pixels).

Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of Web users. In contrast to cookies, which, as discussed above, are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on Web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs to users’ Personal Information.

We use Google Analytics to collect information in an anonymous form about how visitors use the website, including the number of visitors to the website, where visitors have come to the website from, and the pages they visited. This information helps us better manage content on our website by informing us what content is effective.

Do we disclose any information to outside parties?

We do not sell, trade, or otherwise transfer to outside parties your personally identifiable information. This does not include trusted third parties who assist us in operating our website, conducting our business, or servicing you, so long as those parties agree to keep this information confidential. We may also release your information when we believe release is appropriate to comply with the law, enforce our site policies, or protect our or others’ rights, property, or safety. However, non-personally identifiable visitor information may be provided to other parties for marketing, advertising, or other uses.

California Online Privacy Protection Act Compliance

Because we value your privacy, we have taken the necessary precautions to be in compliance with the California Online Privacy Protection Act. We therefore will not distribute your personal information to outside parties without your consent.
