CCPA Privacy Notice

In accordance with the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”), this Corporate CCPA Privacy Notice (“Notice”) discloses the personal information we collect from you and the purposes for doing so.  As used in this Notice, “Caris,” “we,” “us” and “our” refer to Caris Life Sciences, Inc. and our subsidiaries, joint ventures, and other companies under a common control (“Affiliates”), and “personal information” means all personal information as defined in the CCPA, which includes information relating to a particular household as well as a natural person.  This Notice applies to most of the personal information collected by Caris from California residents in the course of conducting our general business operations and is supplemental to our website privacy policies at www.carislifesciences.com, www.carismolecularintelligence.com, and www.mycancer.com (collectively, the “Websites”). There are four main exceptions:

  • This Notice does not apply to personal information collected in the course of treatment, payment, or healthcare operations otherwise covered by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 as amended from time to time. We have a separate HIPAA Privacy Statement covering Protected Health Information that is available here: https://www.carismolecularintelligence.com/privacy-us/.
  • This Notice does not apply if you have received (directly or through our service providers or physicians) a separate notice concerning our use of your personal information. This may occur when we need to provide a separate notice to meet the requirements of specific laws.
  • This Notice does not apply to the personal information of our employees or job applicants. An employee privacy notice is posted on our intranet.  A job applicant privacy notice is provided to applicants when they submit their personal information to us in connection with their job application.

 

Our business purposes for processing your personal information We may use the personal information you provide us to:

  • contact you
  • respond to your comments and questions
  • take steps to enter into, or enter into, a contract with you or your employer or business
  • perform our contracts with you or your employer or business
  • make payments to you
  • comply with our legal and regulatory obligations
Categories of personal information we may process  

We may process the following categories of personal information, as appropriate for the relevant processing activity:

  • name
  • contact details, including postal and e-mail addresses
  • employment-related information
  • information about education and professional qualifications, including professional specialties, prescribing data, and verification of credentials
  • financial information
  • age
  • gender
 

Sources of personal information

 

You may provide personal information to us directly or via our service providers.

The recipients or categories of recipients of the personal information  

  • We may share your personal information with:
  • our subsidiaries, joint ventures, or other companies under a common control (“Affiliates”), in which case we will require our Affiliates to honor this Privacy Notice;
  • our service providers under appropriate contractual restrictions;
  •  companies or individuals who advise us in the course of running our business;
  • third parties in connection with or during negotiation of any merger, financing, acquisition or dissolution, transaction or proceeding involving sale, transfer, divestiture, or disclosure of all or a portion of our business or assets. In the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy or receivership, personal information may also be transferred as a business asset. If another company acquires our company, business or assets, that company will possess the personal information collected by us and will assume the rights and obligations regarding your personal information as described in this Notice;
  • relevant authorities, or other recipients as required in litigation, if Caris believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary (i) in connection with any legal investigation; (ii) to comply with relevant regulatory requirements and laws, such as laws requiring the disclosure of payments made to healthcare providers, (iii) to respond to subpoenas or warrants served on Caris; (iv) to protect or defend the rights or property of Caris; or (v) to investigate or assist in preventing any violation or potential violation of the law.
The period for which the personal information will be stored, or the criteria for determining the retention period  

How long we retain personal information varies according to the type of information in question and the purpose for which it is used.  Certain laws may require us to store personal information for specified periods.  We delete personal information within a reasonable period after we no longer need to use it for the purpose for which it was collected or for any subsequent purpose that is compatible with the original purpose.  This does not affect your right to request that we delete your personal information before the end of its retention period.  We may archive personal information (which means storing it in inactive files) for a certain period prior to its final deletion, as part of our ordinary business continuity procedures.

Children (under 18)  

We do not knowingly collect information about children (anyone under 18), except in connection with pediatric medical services, which, as explained above, are not subject to this Notice.  If any parent or guardian of a child believes that we have personal information about that child that is not related to the child’s participation in one of our clinical studies, please contact us through one of the means below.
