If you access the Website from outside the United States, please take note that Exovie is based in the United States, and the data collected through the Website will be transmitted, processed, and stored on our servers in the United States. The data protection regulations applicable to your personal information transferred to the United States may differ from the regulations in your country of residence.

What Personal Information We Collect

We may gather personal information about you in several ways: directly from you, automatically through your usage of the Website, or from other sources. “Personal information” encompasses data that can identify, relate to, describe, be reasonably linked to, or be associated directly or indirectly with you or your household. The types of personal information we collect depend on your interactions with us.

Personal Information You Provide

We collect personal information that you provide to us, such as when you reach out to us or subscribe to email alerts on our request information page. The following personal information may be collected from you:

  1. Direct Identifiers: This includes your name, email address, physical address, job title, employer, and telephone number.
  2. Other Personal Information: We may collect additional information that you provide when you contact us.

Some forms on our Website may necessitate the submission of personal information. While you have the option to not provide personal information in such cases, doing so may limit your access to certain features of our Website.

Personal Information We Collect Automatically

We may automatically collect personal information when you access or use our Website. This automatic collection may encompass:

  1. Log Information: When your computer or mobile device connects to our web servers (e.g., when you visit our Website), our servers automatically log usage information. This includes data on how visitors navigate and use our Website, such as the number and frequency of visits to each web page, the duration of visits, browser types, referrer data (identifying the web page visited before and after our Website), and IP addresses.
  2. Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies: We may utilize cookies, web beacons, and other tracking technologies to gather information about your interactions with our Website. Here’s a brief description of common tracking technologies:
    • Cookies: These are small text files stored on your computer’s hard drive or in temporary memory. There are two types of cookies: session cookies (which facilitate navigation and expire when you close your browser) and persistent cookies (which last longer and aid in understanding your Website usage). Most web browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can manually delete or configure your browser to delete cookies on a preset schedule. If you block or remove cookies using your browser’s settings, some features and functionalities of our Website may not work as expected.
    • Flash Cookies: Adobe’s Flash Player generates “flash cookies” (or “persistent identification elements”) when you use the player to interact with content on various websites. These data files are stored locally on your device by the Flash plug-in and are not controlled by browser settings. Flash cookies serve similar functions to browser cookies and store user settings, preferences, and usage information. You can find more information on disabling flash cookies in the “Your Choices” section.
    • Web Beacons: Our web pages may include small graphic images called web beacons, also known as “clear gifs.” These elements help us monitor and gather limited information about users, including the type of browser requesting the web beacon, the IP address of the recipient’s device, and the time the web beacon was viewed. Web beacons can be very small or even invisible to users, but essentially any electronic image displayed as part of a web page can function as a web beacon. We use web beacons to count visitors to our web pages and assess how users navigate our Website.

The following personal information may be collected automatically during your use of our Website:

  1. Direct Identifiers: This may include your IP address.
  2. Internet Activity Information: This encompasses details about your browser type, the device used to access our Website, operating system, data regarding network-connected hardware (e.g., computers or mobile devices), and your interactions with the pages you visit on our Website.

How We Use Personal Information

    • For the establishment of defenses or claims in any legal action or dispute involving Exovie or any of its officers, directors, employees, agents, contractors, or partners.
  5. In the event of a sale, transfer, or assignment of all or part of our business or assets (e.g., through a sale, merger, consolidation, change of control, reorganization, bankruptcy, or any other business transaction, including negotiation and due diligence of such transactions). In such cases, we retain the right to disclose any information we have collected about you.

Certain functions on our Website enable interactions between the Website and third-party services, such as social networks. These are known as “Social Features.” Examples of Social Features include the ability to “like” or “share” our content and features that link the Website to third-party services, enabling data exchange. If you utilize Social Features or other third-party services, information you post or provide access to may be publicly displayed by the third-party service you use.
