Web log information is gathered by the computer that hosts our website (called a “web server”) when you visit one of our websites.

Our ad network partners may place cookies and web beacons and similar digital markers on your browser when you visit our websites to collect information about your activities over time on this and third-party websites, apps, and other online services, to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. We may also share PI about you with third parties in order to have those third parties, on our behalf, directly serve advertising to you on their websites.

Reasons We Share PI
We may share your PI with third parties in connection with work that they do for or with Clarus, for purposes consistent with those listed above. These third parties must agree to protect the PI and to use it only as directed by Clarus.
We may also be required to disclose your information in response to lawful information requests for PI by law enforcement authorities, the courts or regulatory authorities, including complying with national security or law enforcement requests.
In the event that Clarus may decide to reorganize or divest part or all of its business, including its information databases, through a sale, divestiture, merger, acquisition or other means of transfer, then PI may be shared with, sold, transferred, rented, licensed, or otherwise provided or made available by Clarus to third parties in connection with the contemplated transaction (without your consent or any further notice to you). In such circumstances, Clarus will seek written assurances that the PI will be protected appropriately.
Where We Transfer and Work With PI
EU-U.S. and Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield
Clarus may process and utilize the PI we receive in the United States from the European Union (EU), the United Kingdom (UK) and Switzerland in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles and other transfer frameworks, as applicable. If you have been directed to this Privacy Statement from a source other than clarustherapeutics.com, the information about how Clarus U.S. adheres to Privacy Shield and other transfer requirements takes precedence over any conflicting information.
If there is any conflict between the terms in this Privacy Statement and the Privacy Shield Principles, the Privacy Shield Principles shall govern. For PI originating in the EU, the UK and Switzerland, this Privacy Statement demonstrates our commitment to processing your PI in accordance with the Privacy Shield Principles of Notice; Choice; Accountability for Onward Transfer; Security; Data Integrity and Purpose Limitation; Access; and Recourse, Enforcement and Liability.
As explained in the “Reasons We Share PI” section above, PI may be shared as appropriate with third parties that process information on behalf of, or with, Clarus. If we disclose PI received under the Privacy Shield or other appropriate transfer mechanisms to a third party, Clarus ensures that the third party has contractual provisions that require the same level of security and confidentiality safeguards as required under the Privacy Shield or by the required transfer framework, as the case may be. Under certain circumstances, Clarus may remain liable for the acts of certain third parties if those third parties process PI originating from the EU, the UK or Switzerland that Clarus discloses to them in a manner that is inconsistent with the Privacy Shield Principles.
If you have any inquiries or complaints about our handling of your PI under the Privacy Shield or other appropriate transfer framework, or you want to view your PI that Clarus processes and request its correction, amendment or deletion, please contact us using the information in the “How to Contact Us” section below.
If you still have a specific privacy concern that has not been resolved after attempting to address your privacy question or concern with Clarus U.S. directly, you may choose mediation of that concern by the neutral third party, American Arbitration Association. You may submit your unresolved privacy concern to the American Arbitration Association for resolution by contacting them here:

For more information on binding arbitration, see the U.S. Department of Commerce's Privacy Shield Framework: Annex I (Binding Arbitration).
Clarus is subject to the investigatory and enforcement authority of the U.S. Federal Trade Commission for purposes of enforcing compliance with the Privacy Shield. Clarus also commits to cooperate with EU Data Protection Authorities (DPAs) and the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (FDPIC) and comply with the advice given by such authorities with regard to human resources data transferred from the EU, the UK and Switzerland in the context of the employment relationship. For more information about the Privacy Shield, please visit the U.S. Federal Trade Commission’s website on Privacy Shield located here.
How Long We Keep PI
PI will be saved for a period of time needed to fulfill legitimate and lawful business purposes in accordance with our record-retention policies and applicable laws and regulations.
How We Secure PI
We provide reasonable physical, technical and procedural safeguards to protect PI we work with and maintain. We limit access to PI to authorized employees and third parties who need access to carry out their assigned roles and responsibilities on behalf of Clarus. Although we strive to protect the PI we work with and maintain, no security system can prevent all potential security breaches.
Your Rights and Choices
Upon verification of your identity and as applicable by law, you have the right to request information from us on how your PI is being used and with whom it is being shared. You also have the right and choice to request to see and receive a copy of the PI that we have about you, request that we correct, restrict the processing of, and/or erase/delete your PI.
To exercise your rights, you or your authorized representative may submit a request to firstname.lastname@example.org by contacting us using one of the methods listed under the “Contact” section.
You will not be discriminated against for exercising any of your rights.
