1. Information We Collect From You
The types of Personal Information we may collect (directly from you or from third party sources) and our privacy practices depend on the nature of the relationship you have with Loxo and the requirements of applicable law. We endeavor to collect information only relevant for the purposes of Processing. Below are the legal bases and some of the ways we collect information and how we use it.
The Personal Information we collect (directly from you or from third party sources) from or about current, prospective and former employees, customers, visitors and guests (collectively “Individuals”) includes information that may be deemed Personal Information, such as title, name, address, phone number, email address, user name, government identification (driver’s license, passport) and Internet Protocol (“IP”) address. We may also collect other information that is not Personal Information, such as demographic information you choose to provide (e.g., your business or company information, professional experiences, educational background, nationality, ethnic origin, gender, interests, preferences and favorites) and answers to a security question and password.
In addition, if you participate in certain programs or services, we may collect information regarding your medications, medical history and other healthcare-related information, including, without limitation, Protected Health Information (collectively, “Health Information”), from Individuals or a third party. Any Health Information that is tied to an Individual’s Personal Information will be treated as Personal Information, provided that any Protected Health Information will be protected in accordance with the requirements of HIPAA.
Some of the ways that Loxo may collect your Personal Information and the legal bases for that collection include:
It is not necessary to provide any Personal Information to use Websites. You can visit much of our Websites without telling us who you are or submitting any Personal Information. However, in order to take advantage of certain features available through the Websites, it may be necessary to provide Personal Information. We may ask for some Personal Information when you send us a comment or question, request information through our site, or sign up to receive communications or services. This Personal Information may include your name, telephone number, e-mail address, and/or other information. If you do not want to give us any Personal Information, you can choose not to use these features of our Websites.
1.2 Other Ways We Collect Information
Loxo Websites are maintained by Loxo in the United States, but the information may be accessible to our collaborators and service providers in other countries. Moreover, if you visit Loxo Websites from a country other than the United States, your communication with us will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international borders. Your use of Loxo Websites indicates your consent to the collection, storage, and processing of Personal Information in the United States and in any country to which we may transfer Personal Information in the course of our business operations. The laws of the United States may not provide the same level of data protection as the laws in your country.
3.1 Use and Disclosure Generally
We use Personal Information for limited purposes. We use Personal Information to provide you with the information and services that you request. Also, we may use Personal Information in aggregate form to help us evaluate and modify existing services and to help us develop additional services that are likely to be of interest to visitors of this website. We will also use Personal Information to communicate with you about our relationship, and where permitted by law, to send you information about the company, our products or services, and other information we believe you may find of interest.
Loxo respects your privacy and understands its role in keeping Personal Information private. Accordingly, Loxo shares Personal Information only under limited circumstances. We may provide Personal Information to any affiliate entity of Loxo, our collaborators, and service providers we may engage to assist us. For example, we may provide Personal Information to an organization in order to deliver information you have requested, or to provide marketing materials on our behalf. We will also disclose information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority request. We will also disclose information if we believe it is necessary to protect our company or our website visitors.

Where your consent for the processing of Personal Information is otherwise required by law or contract, Loxo will comply with the law or contract.

We maintain telephone “do not call” lists and “do not mail” lists as mandated by law. We process requests to be placed on do not mail, do not phone and do not contact lists as required by law.
Do Not Track (“DNT”) is a privacy preference that users can set in certain web browsers.

Loxo does not recognize or respond to browser-initiated DNT signals. For information about “do-not-track”, visit http://www.allaboutdnt.org.
We may automatically collect information through this website that, alone, cannot be used to identify you (referred to as “non-personal information”). Examples of types of non-personal information that we may collect include web pages viewed, browser type, referring website, usage and browsing habits on the website and similar data. We may also aggregate information collected from our users (such as the number of users in a particular geographic location) in a manner which does not identify any one individual. We may use this non-personal information in aggregate form for product and service development, for market analysis, and to understand how to improve the quality of our websites. In doing so, we may provide it to third parties.
Loxo may use and share anonymized or aggregated information with third parties for public health, research, analytics and any other legally permissible purposes.
We encourage you to update the information you provide to us, such as providing us with a new mailing or email address, a name change, or a change in the medical conditions that you have notified us about. This will help us continue to provide information to you that best meets your needs.
California law permits users who are California residents to request and obtain from us once a year, free of charge, a list of the Third Parties to whom we have disclosed Personal Information (if any) for their direct marketing purposes in the prior calendar year, as well as the type of Personal Information disclosed to those parties. Loxo does not share Personal Information with third parties for their own marketing purposes.
All Personal Information collected via or by Loxo may be stored anywhere in the world, including but not limited to, in the United States, in the cloud, on our servers, on the servers of our affiliates or the servers of our service providers. Your Personal Information may be accessible to law enforcement or other authorities pursuant to a lawful request. By providing information to Loxo, you consent to the storage of your Personal Information in these locations.
Loxo takes reasonable steps designed to protect Personal Information. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or storage of information can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. As a result, while Loxo strives to protect Personal Information, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information you transmit to Loxo, and you do so at your own risk. You are responsible for maintaining the secrecy of your own passwords. If you have reason to believe that your passwords or Personal Information is no longer secure, please promptly notify the Loxo helpdesk at 888-398-3778, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
