Collection of Personal Information
It is not necessary to provide any Personal Information to use this website. You can visit much of our website without telling us who you are or submitting any Personal Information. However, in order to take advantage of certain features available through this site, it may be necessary to provide Personal Information. Reata will only collect personally identifiable information you voluntarily submit through our website. This information includes but is not limited to: your name, e-mail address, address, telephone number, and possibly other information. We will use your information only to respond to your requests and to aid us in making our website services more accessible and friendlier to you. If you do not want to give us any Personal Information, you can choose not to use these features of our website.
Our website may use cookie technology to identify users who have previously visited so the user is recognized upon return, thereby saving them time while on our website. A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user’s hard drive containing information about the user. Usage of a cookie is in no way linked to any personally identifiable information while on our website. Once the user closes their browser, the cookie simply terminates. If a user rejects the cookie, they may still use our website. A cookie may be placed by us or by vendors or service agencies who work with us or with our partners. If you do not want your browser to accept cookies, you can turn off the cookie acceptance option in the browser’s settings. However, disabling the cookie support function of the browser will prevent our website from functioning properly, and you may not be able to utilize fully all the site’s features and information.
Our cookies neither reveal nor contain any identifying or personal data. Cookies also cannot read any information on your computer or interact with other cookies on your hard drive.
Log Files and Aggregate Information
We may track the total number of visitors to our website, the number of visitors to each page of our website, IP addresses, and the domain names of our users’ Internet Service Providers, and we may analyze these data for trends and statistics in the aggregate, but such information will be in aggregate form only and it will not contain personally identifiable data. Such aggregate information is not linked to any personally identifiable information that can identify any individual person.
We may use such aggregate information to analyze trends, administer the website, track users’ navigation within the website, and gather broad demographic information for aggregate use. We may share this aggregate information with our corporate partners and contracted vendors to assist us in operating the website and to enable them to better understand Reata’s business.
Use and Disclosure of Personal Information
We use your Personal Information for only limited purposes to provide you with the information and services that you request. The Personal Information you provide will be used ONLY for the purpose of determining your potential eligibility for the study. It will not be sold, shared or transferred to any party not directly involved in the research study sponsored by Reata. We may provide aggregate statistics about our customers, sales, traffic patterns, and related site information to reputable third-party vendors, but these statistics will include no personally identifying information. We may also release information when we believe, in good faith that such release is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with law, (b) enforce or apply the terms of any of our user agreements, or (c) protect the rights, property or safety of Reata Pharmaceuticals, Inc., our users, or others.
At an appropriate time, as the study progresses, this website will no longer be live. At that time, all information submitted through this website will be contained and archived, no longer being actively used by members of the study team. This is expected to occur in 2021. Additionally, we may elect to destroy your information at any time. If you would like to have this information destroyed, please send a request to FALCON@reatapharma.com.

Reata’s dedication to protecting your privacy also extends to children, and our website is not designed or intended to attract children under the age of 13. We do not knowingly collect personal information from any person we know is under the age of 13. If you have questions or concerns about the Internet and privacy for children, we encourage you to visit https://www.consumer.ftc.gov/topics/protecting-kids-online.
