Privacy Policy

Effective Date: December 10, 2020

Scope

Pulse Biosciences, Inc. (“Pulse Biosciences”, “we”, “our”, or “us”) is committed to protecting and maintaining your privacy. This Privacy Policy describes how we use, disclose, transfer, and retain information about you that we collect when you visit our websites (collectively, the “Sites”) or when it is shared with us by our business partners and customers. This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of companies that Pulse Biosciences does not own or control, or to individuals that we do not employ or manage, including operators of websites that link to or from our Sites.

What information do we collect?

We collect personal information, which is information that can be used to identify or contact an individual person. Personal information under this Privacy Policy can be categorized and is described below.

  1. Contact information may include your name, personal or business address, email, telephone number, fax number, or business contact information such as an organization name, or job title. Contact information about you may be collected when you visit our Sites or engage us about our products.

  2. Site interactions information may include information that you have provided or created for identify or preference purposes, such as a username, password, identifiers unique to yourself for our Sites, business or medical practice name, or marketing preferences.

  3. Site usage information may include information that is collected from you or your device when you engage our Sites, such as an internet protocol (“IP”) address, computer or mobile device name, browser type, operating system, or your navigation and clickstream behavior from actions that you take on our website. Site usage information may not always include personal information but may be combined with personal information that has been collected separately.

Some information, in isolation, may not identify an individual and may not be personal information. However, when that information is combined with personal information about an individual, it may then become part of a data set of personal information related to that individual. When combined in this manner, we will treat the data set as personal information.

How do we collect your personal information?

We collect personal information about you when you visit and use our Sites as well as when you inquire or engage us regarding our services or products. The personal information that we collect about you is that which you choose to share with us in registration, when using our products and services, when responding to offers from Pulse Biosciences, or when responding to offers from our business partners or customers.

How do we use personal information?

Pulse Biosciences will use the personal information we collect about you as permitted by the terms of collection at the time you share your personal information. These terms of collection will be available at that time and we recommend that you review them in advance. The uses of personal information by Pulse Biosciences may include the following:

From time to time, to the extent permitted by the terms of collection, we may request to collect additional personal information.

Do we share your personal information with third parties?

Pulse Biosciences shares your personal information with third parties only to the extent that you have been informed of the sharing when we collect the personal information. In those instances, you may “opt-out” and direct us not to share your personal information with third parties or you may “opt-in” to allowing us to share your personal information with third parties. Examples of third party sharing of personal information for which we engage include:

In each of the above situations and similar situations not described above, Pulse Biosciences can no longer update your personal information that has been transferred to such third parties nor opt you out of receiving promotional and/or marketing information from such third parties. Instead, you must contact that third party to update your personal information or to let them know that you no longer want to receive promotional and/or marketing information about their products, services, or offerings.

Does Pulse Biosciences use or share aggregated data?

Pulse Biosciences may collect information regarding customer activities on our Sites, or from our products and services, that is aggregated. Aggregated data may include reports on unique visits, repeat visits, page views, referring URL’s, website usage, and other similar statistics. Aggregated data is not personal information for the purposes of this Privacy Policy and is not associated with your personal information. Aggregated data provides valuable information to Pulse Biosciences about our Sites and users, without identifying individuals. Pulse Biosciences also shares aggregated data with our partners and advertisers.

How do we use tracking technologies?

Our Sites use tracking technologies that provide our Sites certain functionalities, our organization certain insights, and our visitors a more valuable interaction. These tracking technologies may include cookies, web beacons, Javascript, etags, or related technologies, some of which are described below.

You can control cookies and tracking tools in a manner that is browser and device specific. How you do so will depend on the type of tracking tool. Your browser may give you the ability to control cookies or other tracking tools, such as browsers that can be set to reject browser cookies.

Do we transfer personal information across borders or jurisdictions?

Information that you provide to us may be transferred to or stored upon servers in the United States, Canada, countries within the European Economic Area, and other countries in which we do business. Some jurisdictions may require an approved transfer basis, mechanism, or agreement, such as the European Commission approved standard contractual clauses. Where such a requirement exists, Pulse Biosciences executes such mechanisms or agreements in advance of a data transfer or transfers. In addition, Pulse Biosciences confirms that required safeguards are followed prior to the initiation of a data transfer or transfers.
