Privacy Policy

NantWorks, LLC (“NantWorks”, “we” or “us”) recognizes the importance of maintaining the privacy of your information and we appreciate your trust in us. This privacy policy explains how information is collected, used and disclosed by NantWorks with respect to your access to and use of the NantWorks’s website (nantworks.com) and any services provided by NantWorks by or through the Site (collectively, the “Site”). Therefore, we ask that you take a moment to review this Privacy Policy.

1. Scope.

This Privacy Policy applies to the Site and to individuals who provide us with information in connection with the Site (such as email messages sent to info@nantworks.com), even if such individual does not ultimately use the Site.

Please note: This Privacy Policy does not cover any other data collection or processing activities, including, (i) data collection practices of web pages to which the Site may link or (ii) other sites and/or services that may be offered by NantWorks under a separate privacy policy.

2. Changes to this Privacy Policy.

We reserve the right to change this Privacy Policy from time to time. When we do, we will also revise the "last updated" date at the bottom of this page. For changes to this Privacy Policy that may be materially less restrictive on our use or disclosure of personal information that you have provided to us, we may attempt to obtain your consent before implementing the change by by placing a prominent notice on the Site.

3. Information that We Collect.

NantWorks may collect the following types of information from or concerning you or your computer or device:

  • (A) Information You Provide. We collect information that you provide directly to us. For example, we collect information when you request assistance or support, participate in a survey offered in connecting with the Site or when you otherwise use the Site or communicate with us. The types of information that we may collect include your first and last name, company name, email address, postal address, phone number, age and any other information that you choose to provide.
  • (B) Information We Obtain From Your Use of the Site. When you access or use our Site, we may automatically collect information about you, your computer or device, including:

    • Computer/Device Information: We may collect computer/device specific information when you use the Site (such as your hardware model, operating system version, a unique identifier for your device and MAC address).
    • Log Information. We log information that your web browser sends whenever you visit a website, which may include your Internet Protocol (“IP”) address, browser type and language, the websites you viewed before navigating to our site and the website you view when leaving our site, access times, pages viewed, number of clicks, domain names, one or more cookies that may uniquely identify your browser and, if you visit a website from a browser on a mobile phone, your phone number.
    • Cookies and Other Tracking Technologies. We may use various technologies to collect and store information when you use the Site, including by sending one or more cookies to you, by using web beacons (also known as "tracking pixels", "clear gifs," or "web bugs"), or other anonymous identifiers. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that help us improve our Site and your experience, to see which areas and features are popular and to count visits. Web beacons are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies. However, in contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user's computer hard drive, web beacons are embedded invisibly on web pages and other content. Note that, in addition to cookies and web beacons used by NantWorks, the Site may let third party vendors and partners set and access their cookies on your computer or device or use their web beacons on the Site. Other companies' use of their cookies and web beacons is subject to their own privacy policies, not this one.
    • Usage Information. We collect information regarding the performance of the Site, such as page performance metrics, error reports, traffic data and bandwidth measurements.
    • Third Party Analytics. We may use analytics partners, including Google Analytics, to gather statistical and analytical information about traffic and usage trends relating to the Site. For example, these partners may gather and aggregate data on page/screen views, clicks ads and user interface elements and error and crash information. The information may be gathered through the use of cookies, web beacons or other usage tracking technologies. For more information about how Google uses data collected via Google Analytics, please visit http://www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/.
  • (C) Information We Obtain From Other Sources. We may also obtain information from other sources and combine that with information we collect through our Site.

4. Use of Information Collected.

We may use information that we collect from you for various purposes, including to:

  • Provide, maintain and improve the Site;

  • Notify you about a material change to this Privacy Policy or our Terms of Service, if necessary;

We may also share aggregated or de-identified information, which cannot reasonably be used to identify you, with third parties. For example, we may share aggregate usage and volume statistical information regarding the Site with our partners or third parties.

Except as described in this Privacy Policy or at the time we request the information, we do not otherwise sell, share or otherwise disclose your personal information to third parties.

However, any information that we may collect from your use of the third party web site is subject to this Privacy Policy.

Additionally, we may use third party vendors to serve content to you while using the Site. Please be advised that such vendors may gather information (both personal and non-personal) about your use of the Site or other web sites (such as through cookies, web beacons and other technologies) to enable such companies to provide such content, to monitor which content has been served to your browser and which web pages you were viewing when such content was delivered. Further, under certain circumstances we may receive commission if you click on third party advertisements or content. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS POLICY DOES NOT COVER THE COLLECTION AND USE OF INFORMATION BY SUCH COMPANIES, VENDORS AND OTHER THIRD PARTIES. While NantWorks chooses its business partners carefully and strongly encourages them to adopt responsible privacy practices and approaches to online advertising, NantWorks is not responsible for the information and privacy practices of such third parties. The collection, use, and disclosure of information by our business partners are subject to their respective privacy policies, which may differ from this Privacy Policy. You should check the applicable privacy policies of these third parties to determine how they handle any information they receive.

9. Security

No data transmissions over the Internet can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. Consequently, we cannot ensure or warrant the security of information you transmit to us and you understand that any information that you transfer to NantWorks is done at your own risk.

We use firewalls to protect your information from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, please note that this is not a guarantee that such information may not be accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed by breach of such firewalls and secure server software.

If we learn of a security systems breach we may attempt to notify you electronically so that you can take appropriate protective steps. By using the Site or providing information to us you agree that we can communicate with you electronically regarding security, privacy and administrative issues relating to your use of the Site. We may post a notice on the Site if a security breach occurs. We may also send an email to you at the email address you have provided to us in these circumstances. Depending on where you live, you may have a legal right to receive notice of a security breach in writing.
