Domain Therapeutics NA Inc.

Last updated: June 14 2023

Domain Therapeutics NA Inc. (“DTNA”, “us”, “we”, “our”) takes your privacy and the protection of your personal information seriously. This Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) describes our data protection practices, the types of personal information we may receive or collect from you and of how we use, disclose, store and secure it. By doing so, you will be able to make wise and informed choices.

This Policy applies to our website available at https://www.domaintherapeutics.ca/ (“Website”). However, we wish to draw your attention to the fact that the rights and obligations described in this Policy do not cover third-party websites that may be linked to or mentioned on our Website. These third-party websites have their own privacy policies and we encourage you to read them carefully.


For the purposes of this Policy, “Personal Information” means any information about an individual that identifies the individual or that, individually or in combination with other information, identifies the individual. In general, Personal Information does not include business contact information, such as your name, title and position, as well as work address, e-mail address and telephone number.


With a legal basis such as your consent

Generally, we will obtain the Personal Information that we need directly from you with your consent, subject to exceptions as provided by applicable laws. For example, DTNA may need to proceed without your consent where, for reasons of fraud detection or prevention, seeking your consent would defeat the purpose. To the extent permitted by applicable laws, DTNA may also rely on other legal grounds, for example, where processing is necessary to comply with legal obligations to which it is subject.

You provide us with Personal Information directly, for example when you use our Website or when you communicate with us.

Refusal of collection and withdrawl of your consent

You have the right, if you so choose, to refuse the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information. You may also, at any time, and subject to reasonable notice and applicable legal or contractual restrictions, withdraw your consent to the use of your Personal Information in our possession by contacting us. You should be aware, however, that if you choose not to provide us with your Personal Information, this may prevent you, for example, from using the Website, and accessing our services, as this information is essential to the provision of the requested services.

We would also like to inform you that anonymized information, which does not allow us to know who you are, might be kept even if you withdraw your consent.

Use for secondary purposes

Depending on the circumstances, DTNA may also ask for your consent to use your Personal Information for secondary purposes, such as market research or database purposes. Your consent for secondary use may be withdrawn at any time by contacting us, without affecting the provision of our services to you.

Cookies and web beacons

DTNA may use cookies and web beacons. In general cookies are small data files that are commonly stored on your device when you use websites and online services. On the other hand, web beacons are tiny images that we may place on our web pages or emails. They can be used, for example, to obtain anonymously the number of times a particular page has been visited by a user or whether an email has been read. As the name implies, web beacons are invisible in any part of our Website. Unlike cookies, web beacons are not placed on your computer. For the purpose of this Policy, cookies and web beacons are collectively referred to as “cookies”.

• Necessary cookies: We use strictly necessary cookies to enable the proper functioning of our Website, our security measures and those of third parties. Without these cookies, the services you have requested cannot be provided.

• Functionality cookies (also known as “preference cookies”): These cookies are not essential to the provision of our services. They help personalize and enhance the user experience. For example, if you have consented to their use, such cookies will store your communication and language preferences.

In the course of our business, we may need to disclose and share your Personal Information with various stakeholders as described below:

• Our Employees: In the course of their work, our employees may need to access your Personal Information, for example, when you contact us to request support. Their access is limited to what is necessary to perform their duties.

• Agents and Service Providers: From time to time, we may need to share your Personal Information with agents or service providers to help us make the features of our Website available (e.g., maintenance, analysis, legal requirements, fraud detection, hosting, marketing and development). As part of these activities, DTNA’s service providers may have access to and use your Personal Information for a limited time. When DTNA engages third parties to process any Personal Information, DTNA implements reasonable contractual and technical safeguards to ensure that such third parties keep all Personal Information they process strictly confidential. Please note that these third parties may be located in locations other than your current location, in which case appropriate measures are taken by DTNA. For more information on the transfer of Personal Information, see “Do we transfer your personal information outside of Québec?” section.

• When required by law, to enforce compliance or to protect the property or safety of our rights or those of others: For example, we may disclose Personal Information to legal or regulatory authorities in the event that we suspect money laundering, insider trading, manipulative or deceptive business practices or other criminal activities, to detect and prevent fraud, or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements of governmental authorities, regulatory bodies or other self-regulatory organizations. We may also need to disclose Personal Information to comply with a legal obligation (e.g., court order) or to protect our assets (e.g., to collect overdue accounts).

• Business Transfers: As part of our business development, we may sell or buy businesses or services. In such transactions, Personal Information generally becomes part of the transferred business assets, but remains subject to the promises made in any pre-existing privacy policy (unless, of course, the individual consents otherwise).


The Personal Information that we collect is stored in secure systems hosted on servers that may be located outside your province, territory or country of residence. We may also retain the services of agents and service providers who may be located outside of Quebec.However, we strive to protect the Personal Information in our custody, including Personal Information entrusted to an agent or service provider, whether located in Canada or other jurisdictions or countries. In particular, we endeavour to limit their access to Personal Information to that which is necessary to perform the tasks they are assigned. Please be aware that we proceed with privacy impact assessments and also strive to have contractual agreements in place with these agents and service providers to ensure the confidentiality and security of your Personal Information. This may include implementing robust and effective security measures. If you have any additional questions on this subject, you can contact us.


Personal Information will be retained only as long as necessary for the fulfillment of those purposes or as required by law for retention periods. As such, the length of time we retain your Personal Information will vary depending on the purpose for which it is to be used. At the end of such period, we strive to destroy or anonymize this information. If you would like more information on this subject, we invite you to contact us.

Any user may request that his or her account be deleted by sending a request by email.


With necessary and appropriate measures

We strive to apply the necessary and appropriate security measures to ensure the confidentiality of the Personal Information in our possession. In doing so, we follow generally accepted industry standards. The Personal Information in our possession is therefore only accessible to those persons who have the authority to access it and who consult it only when necessary for the performance of their duties.

Appropriate physical, technical and administrative safeguards and security measures have been put in place and are maintained to minimize the risk of incidents. Example of such measures includeprivacy impact assessments, contractual obligations and restricted access to the physical office and to personal information. If you believe that your Personal Information has been compromised, we invite you to contact us.

Depending on applicable laws, you might have the right to obtain access to, or correct the Personal Information collected by us, as well as the right to portability and de-indexation of your personal information, the right to request deletion of your Personal information and the right to withdraw your consent (if any).
