Technical Information and Do Not Track Policy

Our Site automatically collects certain information when you use our Site, such as your IP address, browsing history (including without limitation search terms and clickstream data), device type, operating system information and other usage information about your use of the Site. We collect this information to analyze trends and statistics as well as for site administration purposes. We use cookies and other similar technologies to manage and customize your experience through our Site. If any of this information can be used to identify you because, for example, we link it to your Personal Information, we will treat such information as Personal Information. You may choose to decline cookies. You have the ability to delete cookie files from your hard drive at any time.

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. If a website that responds to a particular DNT signal receives the DNT signal, the browser can block that website from collecting certain information about the browser’s user. Mirati leverages third-party analytics and market performance tools in the administration of its websites. As a result, we have employed best practices and policies to respect browsers using the DNT signal. Mirati respects this tag through applied policies in software developed for us as well as our use of tools to help provide better services and messaging to clinical data subjects and healthcare professionals. Mirati assumes no liability for policies of or failure to comply with the DNT signal by our partners or vendors.

Please read our Cookies Policy for more information about our collection of your data through cookies and other technical processes.

We will keep your Personal Information for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which we collected it, including any legal, professional, accounting or reporting requirements. We will not keep your data longer than what is authorized by the law. To determine the appropriate retention period, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of Personal Information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your Personal Information, the purposes for which we process your Personal Information, whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and all applicable legal requirements. If you would like to know more about how long we keep your Personal Information, you can contact our Data Protection Officer using the information listed below.

International data transfers

Mirati is committed to complying with this Privacy Policy and data protection laws, including those outside of the United States, that apply to our collection and use of your Personal Information. Your personal information could be transferred to countries located outside your country or region, including to countries that may not provide a similar or adequate level of protection to that provided by your country or region. For example, if you are located in the EEA, we may transfer your personal information to the United States or other countries outside of the EEA. By providing us with your Personal Information and using our Site, you acknowledge that your Personal Information may be transferred and processed outside your country or region.  Mirati will take all the necessary measures to ensure that any transfers of your personal information comply with those data protection and privacy laws as well as with specific rules included in European data protection laws. If you would like to know more about how we protect your Personal Information, you can contact us using the information in the section “Contact Us” at the end of this Privacy Policy.

For the transfer of personal information from the EEA and Switzerland to any countries not recognized by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of data protection according to EEA standards, we have implemented adequate measures to protect the personal information, such as by ensuring the recipient is bound by standard contractual clauses (“SCCs”) adopted by the European Commission. If you are located in the EEA or Switzerland, you can request more information about these measures by contacting us at the address or email address in the “Contact Information” section below.

Standard Contractual Clauses Framework

Mirati has entered into contractual relationships that adhere to the SCCs as adopted by the European Commission regarding the processing of personal information transferred from organizations in the European Union and Switzerland to the U.S. To learn more about data transfers under the SCCs click here:

The SCCs cover both “personal information,” which means any information from which an individual can be directly or indirectly identified, as well as “sensitive personal information,” which means personal information revealing an individual’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions or membership of political parties or similar movements, religious or philosophical beliefs, membership of a professional or trade organization or union, physical or mental health, including any opinion thereof, sex life, and, where permitted by applicable law, criminal offences and alleged offences, criminal records or proceedings with regard to criminal or unlawful behavior. Where the individual is based in Switzerland, the definition of sensitive personal information also includes personal information revealing an individual’s ideological views or activities, information on social security measures or administrative or criminal proceedings and sanctions, which are treated outside pending proceedings.

The SCCs apply to personal information both in electronic or paper form, including personal information and sensitive personal information from agents, consultants, contractors, vendors, service providers, business associates, healthcare professionals, patients, clinical study participants and others.

Mirati shall remain liable under the SCCs if an agent uses or discloses personal information received from Mirati in a manner inconsistent with the SCCs, unless Mirati proves that it is not responsible for the event giving rise to the damage.

With respect to personal information transferred or received pursuant to the SCCs, Mirati is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of various privacy protection authorities. In certain instances, Mirati may be required to disclose personal information in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.

What are the special rights of individuals in the European Economic Area?

If you are located in the EEA and we maintain your Personal Information, you have the following additional rights (under the GDPR) with regard to your Personal Information. Note that some of these rights may not be exercisable if you are a patient or may only be exercisable for reasons related to your particular situation.

  • Right to withdraw consent:You have the right to withdraw any consent you have previously given to Mirati at any time. Your withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of our collecting, using, and sharing of your Personal Information prior to the withdrawal of your consent. Even if you withdraw your consent, we have the right to use your Personal Information if it has been fully anonymized and cannot be used to personally identify you.
  • Right to complain:You have the right to lodge a complaint with your Supervisory Authority or with the Supervisory Authority where the alleged violation took place.
