Our Policy:

Welcome to the web site (the “Site”) of AVROBIO, Inc. (“AVROBIO”, “we”, “us” and/or “our”). This Site is operated by AVROBIO and has been created to provide information about our company and the services we offer, including our ex vivo lentiviral-based gene therapies, to our Site visitors and users (“you”, “your”). This Privacy Policy sets forth AVROBIO’s policy with respect to information including personally identifiable data (“Personal Data”) and other information that is collected from visitors to the Site.

Information We Collect:

When you interact with us through the Site, we may collect Personal Data and other information from you, as further described below:

Personal Data That You Provide Through the Site: We collect Personal Data from you when you voluntarily provide such information, such as when you contact us with inquiries, respond to one of our prompts, or use certain Site functionality. Certain other ways we may use your Personal Data are as follows:

  • To administer a promotion or survey.
  • To troubleshoot problems with the Site, or any services.
  • To enforce the Site Terms of Use, and to detect and protect against error, fraud and other unauthorized or illegal activities.
  • To provide any legitimate business service or product.

By voluntarily providing us with Personal Data, you are consenting to our use of it in accordance with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data to the Site, you acknowledge and agree that such Personal Data may be transferred from your current location to the offices and servers of AVROBIO and the authorized third parties referred to herein located in the United States.

Other Information:

Non-Identifiable Data: When you interact with AVROBIO through the Site, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. AVROBIO may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by our affiliates, agents or service providers. The Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers.

In operating the Site, we may use a technology called “cookies.” A cookie is a piece of information that the computer that hosts our Site gives to your browser when you access the Site. Our cookies help provide additional functionality to the Site and help us analyze Site usage more accurately. On most web browsers, you will find a “help” section on the toolbar. Please refer to this section for information on how to receive notification when you are receiving a new cookie and how to turn cookies off. We recommend that you leave cookies turned on because they allow you to take advantage of some of the Site features.

Aggregated or De-Identified Personal Data: In an ongoing effort to better understand and serve the users of the Site, AVROBIO often conducts research on its customer demographics, interests and behavior based on the Personal Data and other information provided to us. This research may be compiled and analyzed on an aggregated and/or de-identified basis, and AVROBIO may share this aggregated and/or de-identified data with its affiliates, agents and business partners. This aggregated and/or de-identified information does not identify you personally. AVROBIO may also disclose aggregated and/or de-identified user statistics and other metrics related to our Site in order to describe our products and services to current and prospective business partners, and to other third parties and for other lawful purposes.

Analytics and Tracking Technologies: We may, and we may allow third party service providers to, use cookies (as noted above) or other tracking technologies to collect information about your browsing activities over time and across different websites following your use of the Site. For example, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help us analyze how users use the Site and enhance your experience when you use the Site. For more information on how Google uses this data, go to www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.

Our Site currently does not respond to “Do Not Track” (DNT) signals and operates as described in this Privacy Policy whether or not a DNT signal is received. If we do so in the future, we will describe how we do so in this Privacy Policy.

Our Use of Your Personal Data and Other Information:

AVROBIO uses the Personal Data you provide in a manner that is consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you provide Personal Data for a certain reason, we may use the Personal Data in connection with the reason for which it was provided. For instance, if you contact us by email, we will use the Personal Data you provide to answer your question or resolve your problem. AVROBIO and its subsidiaries and affiliates (the “Related Companies”) may also use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Site to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our users and customers and to improve our products and services. Further, AVROBIO may make available on the Site photographs containing Personal Data that you submit to us in connection with a contest or other promotion. AVROBIO and its affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about product or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each marketing communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to “opt-out” of receiving future marketing communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future marketing communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below.

Our Disclosure of Your Personal Data and Other Information:

There are certain circumstances in which we may share your Personal Data with certain third parties without further notice to you, as set forth below:

Business Transfers: As we develop our business, we might sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Data may be part of the transferred assets.

Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: AVROBIO, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another entity to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.

Legal Requirements: AVROBIO may disclose your Personal Data if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (i) comply with a legal obligation, (ii) protect and defend the rights or property of AVROBIO, (iii) act in urgent circumstances to protect the personal safety of users of the Site or the public, or (iv) protect against legal liability.
