Information Chimerix Gathers and Tracks

Chimerix collects two kinds of information about visitors: (1) data that visitors volunteer by completing forms and other data on our web site; and (2) aggregated tracking data we collect when visitors interact with our web site.

Personal Information

When you request a service or information, place an order, submit feedback or participate in a forum or survey, we may need to ask you for personal information such as your name, address, email address and telephone number. We do not send you information unless you request it or we believe that the information would benefit your business needs. If you do not want to receive further information from us, simply contact us at the email address listed in the Feedback; Removal from Contact List section below, and request to be removed from the contact list. Once we receive your request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to remove your name from the contact list. If you wish to update any of your personal information, please contact us at such email address, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to update your contact information accordingly. Please be aware, however, even if we update your personal information in our contact list, or we remove such information, it may still be stored in other databases (including those kept for archival purposes) and may still be used to compile aggregated or demographic information for supply to third parties in accordance with this Policy. It is our policy to not provide information that identifies you personally to a third party without your permission, except to process or fulfill your requests, or as otherwise set forth in this Policy.

Non-Identifying Information

We may collect information about our visitors, customers, page views, traffic patterns and related site information. This information helps us evaluate and improve our site and is sometimes useful for marketing and investment analysis. We may share this information with third parties, but only in aggregate statistical form that includes no personally identifying information.

Use of "Cookies"

Cookies are small files that many web sites place on your hard drive that allow such web sites to identify you. The use of cookies is a standard and common practice of many web sites. For example, if you allow a site to remember your login name or password, the site places a cookie on your computer. We may place cookies on your computer to allow us to identify you during future visits to our web site. We may use cookies to measure web site traffic, to offer you certain services and to customize your visit. However, if you do not wish to receive cookies, or want to be notified of when they are placed, your browser may permit you to do so. In many browsers, you can change the browser settings to warn you before accepting cookies or to block cookies. If you block cookies, you may not be able to use certain site features or functions, or the web site may not operate in an optimal mode.

Security

We use reasonable security procedures to protect the information you share with us from unauthorized access or disclosure.

Privacy Protections for Children

Our web site is not directed at children. Therefore, we do not wish to receive, nor do we knowingly collect, personal information from minors.

Linked Sites

Our web site may link to other web sites not controlled by Chimerix. Although we try to be careful in the selection of our strategic service and technology partners, we are not responsible for the privacy or security practices of any other web sites, and you acknowledge and agree that any use of such other web sites is entirely at your own risk. You should carefully review the privacy and security practices of the other web sites before you provide such web sites with any of your personal information.

Other Disclosures

Although your privacy is very important to us, due to the existing legal, regulatory, technical and security environment, we cannot fully ensure, nor do we represent or warrant, that your private communications and other personal information will not be disclosed to third parties. For example, we may be required to disclose your personal information to the government or other third parties under certain circumstances, or third parties may unlawfully intercept or access transmissions or private communications. Additionally, in the unlikely event we need to investigate or resolve possible problems or inquiries, we can (and you authorize us to) disclose any information about you (including personal information) to private entities, law enforcement or other government officials as we, in our sole discretion, believe necessary or appropriate. In all instances, we will cooperate fully when required by law to provide information regarding visitors.

Changes to the Privacy Policy

We reserve the right to change this Policy at any time. If we update this Policy, we will place a notice on our web site indicating such update. You are responsible to review the updated Policy so that you are aware of our then-current privacy practices.
