MarvelBiome, Inc. Privacy Policy

Last revised and effective as of May 17, 2019


This Privacy Policy relates to information collected online by MarvelBiome, Inc. (“MarvelBiome” "we" or “us” or “our”) through your use of the MarvelBiome, Inc. website at www.marvelbiome.com and any subdomains (the “Site”) and the services, features, and information available on the Site and/or any mobile applications we may offer (together with the site, along with associated and successor websites, applications, features, information, and services, or any part thereof, the “Service”). As used herein, “you” and “your” mean a user of the service.


You should carefully read this Privacy Policy. By using the Service, you are signifying your acceptance of this Privacy Policy. If you do not agree to this Privacy Policy, you may not use the service.


WHAT INFORMATION ABOUT ME IS COLLECTED?


Depending on your use of the Service, we may collect two types of information: personally identifiable information and non-personally identifiable information.


Personally Identifiable Information


Personally identifiable information is information that identifies you or can be used to identify or contact you. Such information may include your name, address, e-mail address, and telephone number.


Non-Personally Identifiable Information


Non-personally identifiable information is information, any single item of which, by itself, cannot be used to identify or contact you, including demographic information (such as age, profession, gender, current location, or year of birth), browser types, unique device identifiers, device types, requested URL, referring URL, browser language, the pages you view, the date and time of your visit, domain names, and statistical data involving the use of the Service. Certain non-personally identifiable information may be considered a part of your personally identifiable information if it were combined with other identifiers (for example, combining your zip code with your street address) in a way that enables you to be identified. However, the same pieces of information are considered non-personally identifiable information when they are taken alone or combined only with other non-personally identifiable information (for example, your viewing preferences) in a way that would not enable you to be identified.


WHERE AND WHEN IS INFORMATION COLLECTED (INCLUDING THROUGH THE USE OF
COOKIES)?


We will collect personally identifiable information that you submit to us.
Cookies. We may collect information through the use of cookies. “Cookies” are small text files that can be placed on your computer or mobile device in order to identify your web browser and the activities of your computer on the Service and other websites. Cookies can be used to personalize your experience on the Service (such as dynamically generating content on webpages specifically designed for you), to assist you in using the Service (such as saving time by not having to reenter your name each time you use the Service), to allow us to statistically monitor how you are using the service to help us improve our offerings.


You do not have to accept cookies to use the Service. Although most browsers are initially set to accept cookies, you may reset your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie or to reject cookies generally. Most browsers offer instructions on how to do so in the "Help" section of the toolbar. However, if you reject cookies, certain features or resources of the Service may not work properly or at all and you may experience some loss of convenience.


Log Files.


We also may collect information through our Internet log files, which record data such as user IP addresses, browser types, domain names, and other anonymous statistical data involving the use of the Service. This information may be used to analyze trends, to administer the Service, to monitor the use of the Service, and to gather general demographic information. We may link this information to personally identifiable information for these and other purposes such as personalizing your experience on the Service and evaluating the Service in general.


DOES MARVELBIOME COLLECT INFORMATION FROM CHILDREN UNDER 13 YEARS OF
AGE?


We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. The Service is not designed for or directed to children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13. By providing information to MarvelBiome, you represent that you are 18 years of age or older.


WHAT DOES MARVELBIOME DO WITH THE INFORMATION IT COLLECTS?


We will only use your personally identifiable information to the extent that the law allows us to do so. We use the information collected to provide the Service to you, to help us understand who uses the service, for internal operations such as operating and improving the service and to contact you if you so request.

 

If you identify yourself to us by sending us an e-mail with questions or comments, we may use your information (including personally identifiable information) to respond to your questions or comments, and we may file your questions or comments (with your information) for future reference.


WHEN DOES MARVELBIOME DISCLOSE INFORMATION TO THIRD PARTIES?


We generally disclose information we gather from you through the Service to the following types of third parties and as otherwise set forth in this Privacy Policy or as specifically authorized by you.


Laws and Legal Rights.


We may disclose your information (including personally identifiable information) if we believe in good faith that we are required to do so in order to comply with an applicable statute, regulation, rule or law, a subpoena, a search warrant, a court or regulatory order, lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements, or other valid legal process. We may disclose personally identifiable information in special circumstances to protect the safety and/or security of our users, the service or the general public.


Outside Contractors.


We may employ independent contractors, vendors and suppliers (collectively, "Outside Contractors") to provide specific services related to the Service, such as hosting and maintaining the service and developing applications for the Service. In the course of providing services to us, these Outside Contractors may have access to information collected through the Service,


including your personally identifiable information. We use reasonable efforts to ensure that these Outside Contractors are capable of (1) protecting the privacy of your personally identifiable information consistent with this Privacy Policy, and (2) not using or disclosing your personally identifiable information for any purpose other than providing us with the products or services for which we contracted or as required by law.


Sale of Business.


We reserve the right to transfer information to a third party in connection with a sale, merger or other transfer of all or substantially all of the assets of MarvelBiome or any of its Corporate Affiliates (as defined below), or that portion of MarvelBiome or any of its Corporate Affiliates to which the Service relates, or in the event that we discontinue our business or file a petition or have filed against us a petition in bankruptcy, reorganization or similar proceeding, provided that the third party agrees to adhere to the terms of this Privacy Policy.


Affiliates.


We may disclose information (including personally identifiable information) about you to our Corporate Affiliates. For purposes of this Privacy Policy: "Corporate Affiliate" means any person or entity which directly or indirectly controls, is controlled by or is under common control with MarvelBiome, whether by ownership or otherwise; and “control” means possessing, directly or indirectly, the power to direct or cause the direction of the management, policies or operations of an entity, whether through ownership of fifty percent (50%) or more of the voting securities, by contract or otherwise. Any information relating to you that we provide to our Corporate Affiliates will be treated by those Corporate Affiliates in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.


IS THE INFORMATION COLLECTED THROUGH THE SERVICE SECURE?


We want your information (including personally identifiable information) to remain secure. We strive to provide transmission of your information from your computer or mobile device to our servers through techniques that are consistent with commercially reasonable standards and to employ administrative, physical, and electronic measures designed to protect your information from unauthorized access.


Notwithstanding the above, you should be aware that there is always some risk involved in transmitting information over the Internet. There is also some risk that others could find a way to thwart our security systems. As a result, while we strive to protect your information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security or privacy of any information you transmit to us, and you do so at your own risk.


COULD MY INFORMATION BE TRANSFERRED TO OTHER COUNTRIES?


By using the Service and submitting information on it, you voluntarily consent to the trans-border transfer and hosting of such information. Without limitation of the foregoing, you hereby expressly grant consent to MarvelBiome to (a) process and disclose such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy; (b) transfer such information throughout the world, including to the United States or other countries that do not ensure adequate protection for personally identifiable information (as determined by the European Commission); and (c) disclose such information to comply with lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. If you are a user accessing the Service from a jurisdiction with laws or regulations governing personal data collection, use, and disclosure that differ from those of The United States, please be advised that all aspects of the Service are governed by the internal laws of The United States and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, USA, regardless of your location.


FOR HOW LONG WILL MY PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION BE KEPT?


We will only retain your personally identifiable information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it. To determine the appropriate retention period for personally identifiable information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of that information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure, the purposes for which we process your personally identifiable information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.


DO NOT TRACK


The term “Do Not Track” refers to an HTTP header offered by certain web browsers to request that websites refrain from tracking the user. We take no action in response to automated Do Not Track requests.


HOW WILL I KNOW IF THERE ARE ANY CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY?


We may revise this Privacy Policy from time to time. We will not make changes that result in significant additional uses or disclosures of your personally identifiable information without allowing you to “opt out” to such changes. We may also make non-significant changes to this Privacy Policy that generally will not significantly affect our use of your personally identifiable information, for which your opt-in is not required. We encourage you to check this page periodically for any changes. If any non-significant changes to this Privacy Policy are unacceptable to you, you must immediately contact us and, until the issue is resolved, stop using the service. Your continued use of the Service following the posting of non-significant changes to this Privacy Policy constitutes your acceptance of those changes.


WHO DO I CONTACT IF I HAVE ANY PRIVACY QUESTIONS?


If you have any questions or comments about this Privacy Policy or feel that we are not abiding by the terms of this Privacy Policy, please contact us at info@marvelbiome.com BY USING THE SERVICE YOU SIGNIFY YOUR ACCEPTANCE OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY. IF YOU DO NOT AGREE TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY, YOU SHOULD NOT USE THE SERVICE. CONTINUED USE OF THE SERVICE, FOLLOWING THE POSTING OF CHANGES TO THIS PRIVACY POLICY THAT does NOT SIGNIFICANTLY AFFECT THE USE OR DISCLOSURE OF YOUR PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION, MEANS THAT YOU ACCEPT THOSE CHANGES.
