Privacy Policy

Updated October 10, 2014

The website (the “Site”) is owned and operated by NephroGenex, Inc. (“NephroGenex,” “we,” “us,” or “our”).

When you visit the Site, we may collect your e-mail address if you provide it to us voluntarily in order to join our mailing list. You can also register with the Site by creating an account. When creating an account we require you to provide your name and email address, but you can also choose to provide us with additional information, such as your profession, company name, address, phone and fax numbers and Web addresses for your Web site or other social media pages (all of the foregoing is collectively your “Account Information”). Your Account Information may be used to notify you about important changes to our Site, such as changes or updates to this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Use, security announcements or other similar messages. Please understand that if you choose not to receive promotional correspondence from us, we may still contact you in connection with your relationship, activities, transactions and communications with us.

If you contact us using the Site, we require you to provide your name, email address and company name, and provide you with space to enter a comment. With the exception of the information listed in the foregoing sentence, we ask that you do not disclose any personally identifiable information about you or any other individual in your comment or question. We may keep a record of your contact information and correspondence, and may use your email address, and any information that you provide to us in your message, to respond to you.

When you visit the Site to register with us or simply to browse or read information, we automatically track and collect certain types of non-personally identifiable information about your interaction with the Site using cookies and Site analytics tools (as described in greater detail in the section titled “Use of Cookies; Do Not Track” below) (collectively, “Aggregated Information”). We collect and track Aggregated Information for statistical purposes; we do not use it to identify a particular user. The Aggregated Information provides us with a greater understanding regarding the use of this Site, including which pages are the most popular with our visitors, and allows us to determine if this Site is working properly and to make changes to the Site that allow users to have better experiences on this Site. We are not limited in our use of Aggregated Information for any purpose. For clarity, Aggregated Information means information that is not associated with or linked to your Account Information and does not permit the identification of individual persons.

We will not sell or lease personal information you provide to us on the Site to any third party. Except as otherwise expressly provided in this Privacy Policy, we will only share the personal information you provide us via the Site:

(A) as required by law or regulation or if we believe in good faith that disclosure of such personal information is reasonably necessary to: (1) satisfy any applicable law or regulation, (2) to respond to claims and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served on us, (3) to protect and defend our rights or property, and/or the rights or property of our registered users, or third parties, as permitted by law, (4) to detect, prevent, or otherwise address fraud, security or technical issues; or (5) to enforce our Terms of Use; and/or

(B) with trusted service providers that provide certain services to maintain and operate the Site and certain features on the Site (i.e., we may use third parties to host the Site (or portions of the Site such as our investor portal), operate various features available on the Site and manage our email newsletter subscriptions and distribution). Our service providers will be permitted to obtain only the personal information they need to deliver the service and they will process such personal information or use your personal information to provide the requested services in compliance with appropriate confidentiality and security measures, and to the extent practical, this Privacy Policy.

As with any other business, it is possible that in the future we could merge with or be acquired by another company or entity. If such an acquisition occurs, the successor entity would have access to the information maintained by us, including account information, but would continue to be bound by this Policy unless and until it is amended. We may share Aggregated Information with certain third parties such as advertisers, national industry organizations, and prospective affiliates.

You can stop the delivery of future promotional e-mail from us by following the specific instructions in the e-mail you receive. If you are a registered user, you can also opt in or opt out from the delivery of promotional e-mail via your user account.

We are committed to protecting the security of Account Information you provide to us via the Site. We employ reasonable measures, including administrative, technical, and physical measures to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, loss, alteration, use, or disclosure. While we make commercially reasonable efforts to make sure your personal information is safe, please note that no data transmitted over the Internet or any other public network cannot be guaranteed to be 100% secure, and you provide all personal information via the Site at your own risk.

Please note that it is your responsibility to keep your user account password confidential. Do not share this information with anyone. If you become aware that any information provided by or submitted to the Site has been lost, stolen, or used without permission, please notify us immediately using the contact information at the end of this Privacy Policy.

Like many websites, we use “cookie” technology to collect Aggregated Data and to improve the Site. Cookies are pieces of information that a website transfers to an individual’s hard drive to identify previous visitors to the site. We use session cookies to store information about your visit to our Site in order to enhance your visit to this Site. For example, storing that information allows you to navigate the Site while logged into your account. Cookies are text files that can be rejected, disabled or deleted by you at any time. You may be able to disable or delete cookies using your Internet browser settings. However, by disabling, deleting or rejecting cookies, you may inhibit the user experience on this Site and other websites.

Some of our business partners are analytical tracking software providers who use cookies and tracking technologies on the Site to help us improve our Services and the Site. These cookies may include persistent cookies that would permit the analytics provider to track you across websites and before and after you use the Site. We have no access to or control over these cookies or tracking technologies.

Many internet browsers have a “Do Not Track” setting that sends a signal requesting that tracking cookies not be added during your visit. Since we do not track our users, the Site using persistent cookies, the Site does not respond to Do Not Track signals. As a result, our analytics service providers may be able to use persistent cookies when you use the Site even if you have turned on a Do Not Track or similar setting.

Our Site contains links to other websites. The fact that we link to a website is not an endorsement, authorization or representation of our affiliation with that third party. We do not exercise control over third party websites. These other websites may place their own cookies or other files on your computer, collect data or solicit personal information from you. Other sites follow different rules regarding the use or disclosure of the personal information you submit to them. We encourage you to read the privacy policies or statements of the other websites you visit. Please be aware that the terms of this Privacy Policy do not apply to third party websites.

Our Site is not intended for, or designed to attract, children under the age of 13 and as such, we do not intentionally gather information from individuals who are under the age of 13. If we become aware that a child under 13 has provided us with information, we will delete such information from our files.

You should be aware that the United States and other countries have not harmonized their privacy regulations. Because NephroGenex and its servers are located in the United States, our Privacy Policy has been prepared to comply with applicable United States regulations. By accessing and/or using our Site and providing personal information to us via the Site, you consent to the transfer of your information to the United States and agree to the level of privacy protection set out in this Privacy Policy.

Each time you use the Site, the current version of this Privacy Policy will apply. Accordingly, when you use the Site, you should check the date of this Privacy Policy (which appears at the top of the Privacy Policy) and review any changes since the last version. Our business changes frequently and this Privacy Policy is subject to change from time to time. Unless stated otherwise, our current Privacy Policy applies to all information that we have about you. We will not materially change our policies and practices to make them less protective of customer information collected in the past without the consent of affected customers.
