This privacy notice covers how and why we collect and use Personal Data about you, through our provisions of Services.
When we use the term “Personal Data”, we mean data that reasonably can be used to identify a person or that reasonably relates to a living person (a “Data Subject”).
When we use the term “Services”, we mean to refer collectively to:
- The website Novavax.com and any others owned and controlled by us that link to this privacy notice (“Sites”).
- Prospective research and employee application processes (“Application Activities”)
While considering applications for employment, including evaluating and confirming your suitability for a position and accuracy of any information submitted we may make our own inquiries to verify or add to information you provide us during the course of Application Activities. Personal data may include background data including, when allowed by law and relevant to the position, information on criminal history/unlawful conduct; professional and employment information including CV/resume details, professional and academic history, credentials, designations, licenses and personnel files.
- Our marketing and business development activities, including events we host (such as webinars) and social media properties we operate (“Marketing Activities”).
For managing, operating, developing and growing our business, and administering the Services, including through the use of third party service providers and business partners, we process Personal Data about name, attendance, profession, email address, and telephone number, as communicated before and during the Marketing Activity. We also collect relevant Personal Data when you voluntarily submit information, when you register with us to receive information about clinical trials or other research studies, when you register for events such as webinars, trainings, lectures, seminars, or workshops, when you submit a grant request, when you request to receive financial updates about Novavax’ business, when you apply for a job, send us an email or other correspondence, or complete a form in connection with our Services.
Publicly Available Sources including from social media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, LinkedIn, and other publicly available databases may be used when relevant to the purpose for which the information was first shared through those platforms.
We may also process Personal Data for the purpose(s) of developing and maintaining relationships with health care professionals, investigators, researcher, patients and caregivers; for notifying related parties regarding Novavax financial information; for communicating with you to respond to your inquiries and to provide technical or administrative support; investigating and resolving disputes and security issues and enforcing our Terms and Conditions. We may process Personal Data with the purpose of preventing, investigating and providing notice of fraud, unlawful or criminal activity, unauthorized access to or use of Personal Data, the website or our data systems, and to meet legal, regulatory, judicial and company policy obligations; and for other lawful and legitimate business purposes as communicated to you through other means than this policy.
Because Novavax wants to make sure you are provided all relevant information without risking information fatigue, we may provide additional privacy notices to you at the time we collect your data. For example, we often provide a specific privacy notice to participants in research studies or clinical trials (collectively, “Research”) during the informed consent process that describes our privacy practices in connection with conducting Research. This type of an “in-time” notice will govern how we may process the information you provide at that time instead of this privacy notice.
The Data Subjects ("you") we receive Personal Data from in providing the Services are:
- Physicians and other healthcare professionals;
- Clinical trial investigators;
- Potential investors in Novavax;
- Prospective research participants;
- Service providers, contractors and consultants;
- Job applicants; Volunteers; and
- Other individuals who interact directly with Novavax or its business partners.
