Apogee Therapeutics Privacy Notice

Last Updated: January 31, 2024

Apogee Therapeutics, Inc. (“Apogee”, “We”, or “us”) is committed to maintaining your privacy and recognize the importance of providing protection for any personal data that you choose to share with us or that we maintain about you. We have established this Privacy Notice to inform you about how we process your personal data for “Apogee’s Services,” including when you use our websites and when you interact with us as a consumer, business contact (the “Business Services”) or as a healthcare professional.

Please note that in some instances we or our representatives may provide you with a separate privacy notice as legally required, in which case that privacy notice provided to you will control our processing of your personal data instead of this Privacy Notice. For example, if you participate in a clinical trial sponsored by Apogee, you will generally receive a separate privacy notice at the time you consent to enroll in the trial that will describe Apogee’s collection, use, and disclosure of your personal data as part of that trial.

Please read this Privacy Notice carefully. Should you have any questions about this Privacy Notice or our data practices, please see our contact information below.

We and our service providers use various data collection technologies, including cookies and web beacons, to collect personal data about you when you interact with our websites. Cookies are small data files stored on your hard drive or in device memory that help us improve our online presence and your experience, see which areas and features of our websites are popular, and count the number of visits. We generally use the following categories of tracking technologies:

  • Essential or Strictly Necessary: We use first party cookies that are essential for the operation of our websites and enable its functionality.
  • Functional: These cookies enable the website to provide enhanced functionality and personalization. They may be set by us or by third party providers whose services we have added to our pages. If you do not allow these cookies, then some or all of these services may not function properly.
  • Performance: These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic sources so we can measure and improve the performance of our site.

Some web browsers incorporate a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) or similar feature that signals to websites that a user does not want to have his or her online activity and behavior tracked. Because DNT is not uniform across browsers, it is possible that website operators, like us, do not recognize or respond to browser initiated DNT signals. Websites linked to this Policy may not respond to these “do-not-track” signals.

Our websites include content populated by third parties, such as social media companies, which may contain its own cookies.

The country or state where you are located or reside may grant you additional privacy rights with respect to the personal data we maintain about you. We included an explanation of these rights for some of these locations below.

We will take steps to verify your identity before processing certain requests. We will not fulfill your request unless you have provided sufficient information for us to reasonably verify you are the individual about whom we collected personal data. We will only use the personal data provided in the verification process to verify your identity or authority to make a request and to track and document request responses unless you initially provided the information for another purpose.

You may use an authorized agent to submit a request. When we verify your agent’s request, we may verify your identity and request a signed document from your agent that authorizes your agent to make the request on your behalf.
