Gelclair® Website – Privacy Policy

DARA BioSciences Inc. is the data controller responsible for the content of this website.  DARA can be contacted at or by calling 1.855.327.2246.

DARA BioSciences respects the privacy of visitors to its Gelclair site and is committed to the protection of their information.  The Gelclair site provides helpful links to other third party sites as a service to our visitors.  This Privacy Policy does not apply to those sites.

The site content and services are intended for adult users age 18 and older.  The site is not designed or intended to attract visitors less than 18 years of age and we do not knowingly collect personal data via this site from visitors in this age group.  If we learn that an under 18 visitor has submitted personal data via this site, we will delete such information from our database.  If you believe the personally identifiable information of anyone under the age of 13 has been provided to us, and you are the parent or guardian of that individual, you may contact us to request that we delete any such personally identifiable information, at or by calling 1.855.327.2246.

What Information Do We Collect and What Do We Do With The Information You Provide?
DARA collects information manually and automatically.  Access to the site does not require any form of registration, allowing you to visit our site without need to provide us with your personal information.  However, you may be asked to provide us information when you visit the site, in order to allow DARA to respond to requests for information or other services you may be seeking.  Information collected manually includes your name, address, telephone number, demographic information, or email address.

DARA also collect information automatically through cookies and other tracking mechanisms.  Your browser may allow you to disable some tracking mechanisms, but doing so may limit site functionality.  Information collected automatically includes, without limitation, your domain name and host for internet access, the internet address of the site from which you came, the date and time you access the website, your computer or device’s IP address and information about its operating system, browser and host, and your geographic location.  DARA uses this information for several purposes, including without limitation, to improve site functionality, help diagnose problems with our servers, to administer the website, and to gather demographic data and website statistics.  Notwithstanding the foregoing, you should assume that DARA will use your information for any lawful purpose.

Your information is stored in servers that are operated and maintained by us.  We retain personal data as long as deemed necessary and to the extent needed to fulfill the purposes for which they were originally collected.  Although we use what we believe to be commercially reasonable practices to protect your privacy, that does not mean, and you should not expect it to mean, that your information or communications will always be private or protected.

We generally will retain information for as long as required, allowed or for as long as we believe it useful. If you cease using the site, or your permission to use the site is terminated, we may continue to use and disclose your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy. We do not undertake retention obligations through this Privacy Policy. We may dispose of information in our discretion without notice, subject to applicable law.

Is Your Personal Information Shared with Other Third Parties?
We reserve the right to use, disclose, retain, share and otherwise deal with all information collected via the site internally or to third parties, for any lawful purpose or to prevent harm to us or others. For example, and without limitation, in our discretion we may:

  • Disclose information to service providers and others in order to deal with requests and questions from you; to personalize or enhance your experience; and to assist or respond to our consultants.
  • Disclose information to government regulators, law enforcement authorities or alleged victims of identity theft, as well as voluntary disclosures; and
  • Disclose any matter relating to the Site or your account not listed in this Privacy Policy, but which is not prohibited by law from being disclosed.

In the Event of Merger or Sale:  If DARA should ever sell its assets or merge with another entity, or file for bankruptcy, the information DARA receives from you through the site, including personally identifiable information, is a DARA asset and may be transferred to the acquiring party as permitted by applicable law.

We do not purport to have listed all possible disclosures that we might make. This Privacy Policy is intended to help you understand our general practices. This Privacy Policy is not a promise that your information will never be disclosed except as described above. For example, third parties may unlawfully intercept or access information transmitted to or contained on the site, technologies may malfunction or not work as anticipated, or someone might access, abuse or misuse information, despite a lack of permission. Although we use what we believe to be commercially reasonable practices to protect your privacy, that does not mean, and you should not expect it to mean, that your information or communications will always be private or protected.

Privacy Policy Changes
DARA may occasionally update this Privacy Policy.  Any information that we collect from you online is subject only to DARA’s current Privacy Policy in place at the time that such information is collected.  We encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to stay informed about how we are protecting the personal information we collect.  Your continued use of the site constitutes your agreement to this Privacy Policy and any updates.  Updates will only apply after the effective date of the update.
