I. What Types of Information Does MacroGenics Collect Through the Sites?

The information we collect about you if you visit a Site (“Your Information”) includes any information you actively provide, such as when you give us your contact information, as well as information you provide passively simply by visiting the Site.

Like many websites, our Sites may actively collect information about you by asking you specific questions and/or by inviting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, feedback forms, and other forums. Some of the information that you might submit includes your name, postal address, e-mail address, phone number, place of work, or the state of your health.

The Sites also automatically collect some information about your use of the Sites. You “passively” provide this data through the computer or device that you use to connect to a Site. This data is collected via browser navigational tools, such as cookies, local shared objects (“flash cookies”), pixel tags, and similar technologies that are employed on the Sites.

Cookies are small data files that a website stores on the hard drive of the device through which a website user connects to the website. You can set your browser to accept all cookies, to reject all cookies, or to notify you whenever a cookie is offered so that you can decide each time whether to accept it. However, refusing a cookie may in some cases preclude you from using, or negatively affect the display or function of, a website or certain areas or features of a website.

By visiting any of the Sites, you are deemed to unambiguously agree to its use of any cookies that you do not disable.

We use performance and analytics firms including but not limited to Google Analytics, Google Search Console, which employ cookies and similar technologies on the Sites, so that we can compile statistics about our daily number of Site visitors, specific page requests, or other patterns of use on the Sites. The Sites currently do not respond to a “Do Not Track” browser signal from a visitor’s computer or other connecting device.
