What is Personal Data?
Personal data is information that specifically identifies an individual, such as an address, telephone number, e-mail address, and information about that individual’s activities when directly linked to that person. Personal data also includes demographic information such as date of birth, gender, geographic area and preferences when such information is linked to other personal data that identifies you (“Personal Data”).
Personal Data We Collect:
You may provide Personal Data to us when you interact with us through the Site and/or provide information to MyoKardia. For example, depending on the specific MyoKardia Online Services, you may provide us with personal information when you:
1. Contact us by email for any reason (such as to ask a question or provide us with your comments/feedback) and we collect your name and email address from this contact;
2.Submit your resume or other personal information in response to a job opening posted on the MyoKardia Online Services.
When you interact with MyoKardia through the Site, we receive and store certain personally non-identifiable information. Such information, which is collected passively using various technologies, cannot presently be used to specifically identify you. MyoKardia may store such information itself or such information may be included in databases owned and maintained by MyoKardia affiliates, agents or service providers. This Site may use such information and pool it with other information to track, for example, the total number of visitors to our Site, the number of visitors to each page of our Site, and the domain names of our visitors' Internet service providers. It is important to note that no Personal Data is available or used in this process.
MyoKardia does not require that you accept cookies; however, some functionality on the MyoKardia Online Services may be disabled if you decline to accept cookies. You can set your browser to notify you when you receive a cookie, giving you the chance to decide whether or not to accept it.
How we use Personal Data and Other Information:
MyoKardia may use your Personal Data and other personally non-identifiable information collected through the Site for internal purposes only to help us improve the content and functionality of the Site, to better understand our users and to improve the MyoKardia Services. MyoKardia and its affiliates may use this information to contact you in the future to tell you about services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future communications. In addition, if at any time you wish not to receive any future communications or you wish to have your name deleted from our mailing lists, please contact us as indicated below. When we use your personal data, it may be processed on our servers in the United States of America and in other countries, and your information may be processed on a server that lies outside your own country
Use of Aggregate Information:
Personal Data does not include “aggregate” information. Aggregate information is data we collect about a group or category of services or users, from which individual identities have been removed. In other words, information about how you use a service may be collected and combined with information about how others use the same service, but no personal information will be included in the resulting data. Aggregate data helps us understand trends and customer needs so that we can better consider new services and tailor existing services to customer desires. We may share aggregated non-personal information with third parties outside of MyoKardia.

- Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties: MyoKardia, like many businesses, sometimes hires other companies to perform certain business-related functions. Examples of such functions include mailing information, maintaining databases and processing payments. When we employ another MyoKardia to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function.
