Privacy Statement

Acrivon Therapeutics is committed to respecting your privacy.  This privacy statement (the “Privacy Statement”) explains our practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of information that you may provide to us through your use of https://acrivon.com (“Site”).  This Privacy Statement describes the types of information we gather from people visiting and interacting with our Site (“you” or “users”), and how we use, transfer, and secure such information.  This Privacy Statement does not cover information we receive from third parties.  For example, our use of information collected in connection with our clinical studies is governed by separate privacy notices.

This Privacy Statement is incorporated into, and is part of, our Terms of Use available at https://acrivon.com which governs your access to the Site and your use of the Site, unless you have entered into a separate written agreement with us.  If you have entered into a separate written agreement with us, that separate written agreement shall control, and only those terms within this Privacy Statement that do not conflict with such separate written agreement shall apply.  Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalized terms shall have the meaning assigned to such terms in the Terms of Use.

If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Statement please contact us at corporate@acrivon.com.

By accessing the Site, you agree to be bound by this Privacy Statement.  If you do not agree to the terms of this Privacy Statement, please do not use the Site.  Each time you use the Site, the current version of this Privacy Statement will apply. Accordingly, when you use the Site, you should check the date of this Privacy Statement (which appears at the bottom) and review any changes since you last reviewed the Privacy Statement.

Scope

If you are located within the European Economic Area (“EEA”), United Kingdom (“UK”) or Switzerland, Acrivon AB (Sweden) is the controller of your personal data. This entity is responsible for determining how and why your personal data is processed.

If you are located outside the EEA, UK or Switzerland, Acrivon Therapeutics, Inc. is responsible for your personal information. For ease of reference in this Privacy Policy, Acrivon AB and Acrivon Therapeutics, Inc. will be referred to collectively as “Acrivon”, “we” or “us”.

Information We Collect and How We Use It

We collect two types of information from users and visitors of our Site: “Personal Information,” which is information that you provide that can be used to identify you (such as name, email address, etc.), and “Aggregate Information,” which is information that cannot be used to identify you (such as data about what parts of our Site are most or least frequently viewed, changes in the volume of traffic to our Site over time, etc.)

Personal Information Collected

We collect Personal Information that you voluntarily provide to us when you use our Site.  For example, you may provide us with your email address, first name and last name, phone number, or other Personal Information when you choose to submit such information to us through email, an online form or other method (such as contacting us through our “Contact Us” or “Careers” Site features).  

If we have collected your Personal Information through our Site, we may use it to inform you about our products and services and to gather feedback from you on our Site and services.  You may unsubscribe from any marketing communications at any time by selecting the opt-out link which will be contained in any such email or communications that you receive, or by contacting us by using the details below.

Employment 

If we have collected your Personal Information through our “Careers” page in response to a job opening, you are giving us permission to process and retain your information for the purpose of evaluating your application for employment consideration for the specific position that you applied to, as well as other roles at Acrivon. This Personal Information may be processed and stored by a third party talent tracking solution provider. 

Collection of Personal Information by Third Parties

Some links on our Site may redirect you to third party websites that we do not operate.  The privacy practices of those websites will be governed by their own policies. We make no representation or warranty as to the privacy practices or policies of any third parties, including the providers of third party applications.  If you are submitting information to any such third party through our Site, you should review and understand that party’s applicable policies, including their privacy policies, before providing your information to the third party.

Aggregate Information Collected

Aggregate Information is information that does not identify you.  Aggregate Information may be collected when you visit our Site, independent of any information you voluntarily enter.  Additionally, we may use one or more processes to de-identify information that contains Personal Information, such that only Aggregate Information remains.  We may collect, use, store, and transfer Aggregate Information without restriction.

For example, when you visit our Site, some information is automatically collected.  Such information could include your operating system, the site from which you linked to us (“referring page”), the name of the website you choose to visit immediately after ours (called the “exit page”), information about other websites you have recently visited, browser (software used to browse the internet) type and language, device identifier numbers, your site activity, and the time and date of your visit.  We use this information to understand how our Site is used and to improve its functionality. However, we do not combine this information to identify you or associate you with the various devices you use to access the Site.  Although we do our best to honor the privacy preferences of our visitors, we are not able to respond to “Do Not Track” signals from your browser. 

Use of “Cookies”

Like most websites, our Site uses “cookies.”  Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser to help us identify you when you come to our Site.  You have choices with respect to cookies.    By modifying your browser preferences, you have the choice to accept all cookies, to be notified when a cookie is set, or to reject all cookies.  If you choose to reject all cookies you may be unable to use some features of our Site.  You can learn more about cookies and how they work at www.allaboutcookies.org.  You can always disable cookies through your browser settings. You can opt-out from third party cookies that are used for advertising purposes on the NAI website at http://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.asp.

Cookies that are necessary to display content, or that are necessary for the security or basic operation of our Site, are turned on by default and cannot be turned off.  We request your consent for the use of other cookies as listed on our CookieYes cookie management tool. You may manage your consent by seeing our Cookie Policy.

Analytics

We use Google Analytics to analyze traffic to our Site. Google Analytics does not create individual profiles of visitors and only collects Aggregate Information.  To disable Google Analytics, please download the browser add-on for the deactivation of Google Analytics provided by Google here.  

You may find additional information about Google Analytics at http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. You have the option to opt out of Google’s use of cookies by changing your settings through Google Ad Settings via the Google advertising opt-out page at http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

Do Not Track Signals: At this time, we do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals from your web browser due to the lack of an established industry standard. For more information about “Do Not Track” signals, please visit https://allaboutdnt.com/.

Sharing of Personal Information with Third Parties

We may transfer Personal Information to third parties for the purpose of providing the Site.  We may disclose Personal Information to our affiliates or third party service providers to provide you with the Site.  For example, we may transfer your Personal Information to third party service providers to assist with providing the Site and other services and to communicate with you about current or future offerings. These third party service providers are not authorized to retain, share, store or use the Personal Information for any purposes other than to provide the services they have been contracted to provide. We do not share personal information with third parties for their own marketing purposes. 

We may also transfer your Personal Information to third parties under the following circumstances: (i) to comply with a legal requirement, judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process served; (ii) to investigate a possible crime, such as fraud or identity theft; (iii) in connection with the sale, purchase, merger, reorganization, liquidation or dissolution of Acrivon; (iv) when we believe it is necessary to protect the rights, property, or safety of Acrivon or other persons, or (v) as otherwise required or permitted by law, including any contractual obligations of Acrivon.

Corrections/Information Removal/Opt-Out

You can request that any Personal Information stored by us be deleted at any time by contacting us at corporate@acrivon.com.  We may require you to provide certain information to verify that it is you making the request.  However, note we will not delete information that we are required to retain in order to comply with applicable laws and regulations.
