Privacy Policy

Introduction and your consent:

This site is owned by NewLink Genetics, Inc. This Privacy Policy applies to and any other Website or online application that links to it. This policy is designed to tell you about our practices regarding collection, use, and disclosures of information you may provide us via this site. Please read this entire Privacy Policy before using or submitting information to this site. This site is governed solely by applicable Federal and State laws and governmental regulation in the United States. Whenever you submit information via this site, you consent to the collection, use, and disclosure of such information in accordance with such laws and regulations, and to our Privacy Policy.

About children:

This site is not intended for use by children under the age of 13. We will not knowingly collect information from site visitors in that age group. We encourage parents to talk to their children about their use of the Internet and the information they disclose to Websites.

Active information collection:

Like many Websites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, feedback forms, and other forums. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, address, e-mail address, phone number, place of work, and so on).

Some areas of this site may require you to submit information in order to participate in our programs and activities (such as our Regulation Kit licensing program, or submission of a resume) or to receive information from us in the future (such as e-mail alerts for news releases or investor information). You will be informed at each information collection point that this Privacy Policy is in effect.

Passive information collection:

As you navigate through a Website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies and means, such as navigational data collection. Our Website may use some or all of the navigational data technologies listed below with definitions that are in common use within the Internet communications community:

  • · Internet Protocol (IP) addresses assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider
  • · “Cookies” and “session cookies”
  • · Navigational data, such as “log files,” “server logs,” and “clickstream data”


Use and disclosure of information:

Unless stated otherwise, we may use your information to improve the content of our site, to customize the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have so requested), for our marketing and research purposes, and for the other purposes specified in this Privacy Policy. If you provide personally identifiable information to this site, we may combine such information with other actively collected information unless we specify otherwise at the point of collection. We will take reasonable care to prevent personally identifiable information from being combined with passively collected information, unless you consent otherwise.

We will take reasonable measures to protect the confidentiality of the personally identifiable information you submit to us and will not disclose it to parties outside of NewLink Genetics or its affiliates without requiring such outsiders to treat such information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. In addition, we will make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.


We will take reasonable steps to protect your personally identifiable information as you transmit it from your computer to our site and to protect it from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should be aware that no Internet transmission is ever fully secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, ID numbers, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them from disclosure or misuse.

Links to other websites:

This site contains links or references to other Websites. Please be aware that we do not control other Websites and that this Privacy Policy does not apply to those Websites. We encourage you to read the privacy policy of every Website you visit.

Other applicable policies:

Your use of this site is subject to the terms of our General Website Legal Matters.

Access and correction:

To keep your personally identifiable information accurate, current, and complete, please contact us as specified below. We will take reasonable steps to update or correct personally identifiable information in our possession that you have previously submitted via this site.
