By using Our Services, you acknowledge that you have read and understood the Privacy Policy and are providing your consent to the practices We describe in it.

From time to time We may post changes or modifications to the Privacy Policy on Our websites, which will be effective upon posting. Please review this Privacy Policy periodically to keep yourself informed of any changes.

  • Information collected through cookies (as discussed in greater detail below), web beacons and other technologies);

While such non-personal information may be regarded as personal information in certain jurisdictions when combined with other information, We do not use the information for this purpose.

We may use the information that We collect through the Services for a variety of purposes, including to:

  • Provide you with the products, promotions, services, newsletters and other information you request;

We may use cookies, pixel tags and similar technologies to automatically collect certain types of non-personal information. Cookies are small text files that are stored by your computer’s web browser and that may automatically identify your browser to the Services whenever your computer is used to visit the Services. Pixel tags are very small images or small pieces of data embedded in images, also known as “web beacons” or “clear GIFs,” that can recognize cookies, the time and date a page is viewed, a description of the page where the pixel tag is placed, and similar information from your computer or device. By using the Services, you consent to Our use of cookies and similar technologies. You can decide if and how your computer will accept a cookie by configuring your preferences or options in your browser. However, if you choose to reject cookies and similar technologies, you may not be able to use certain Services.


Prothena will only share or disclose your personal information with the following authorized third parties:

  • Service Providers: We may share your information with service providers that perform certain functions or services on Our behalf (such as to host the Services, fulfill orders, provide products and services, manage databases; perform analyses, provide customer service, or send communications for Us);
  • Business Transfer: If We sell all or part of Our business, or make a sale or transfer of assets, or are otherwise involved in a merger or business transfer, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, a business reorganization, or similar event, We may transfer your information as part of such transaction;
  • Administrative or Legal Process: We may disclose your information to third parties in order to protect the legal rights, safety, and security of Our organization, Our corporate affiliates, subsidiaries and business partners, and the users of Our Services; enforce Our Terms of Use; respond to and resolve claims or complaints; prevent fraud or for risk management purposes; and comply with or respond to law enforcement or legal process or a request for cooperation by a government or other entity, whether or not legally required;
  • Other Parties with Your Express or Implied Consent: We may share information with third parties when you consent to such sharing; and
  • Aggregate Information: We may share aggregate information, such as demographic and usage statistics, with other organizations.

In addition, We may allow third parties to install and read their own cookies, web beacons and similar technologies to collect information through the Services. For example, like many website operators, We may use Google Analytics to learn more about how visitors interact with Our Services. You understand that when you use the Services, these third parties may collect information related to your use of the Services.


Your collected information may be stored, transferred to, and processed in any country in which Prothena, its affiliates or its authorized third-party partners maintain facilities, including the United States or other countries which might not provide the same level of data protection as your country of residence. However, your information will still be handled in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable privacy laws.


While We seek to protect your personal information from unauthorized access, disclosure and use using methods consistent with applicable privacy and security laws and generally accepted standards, We cannot guarantee the security of any personal information transmitted in connection with the Services. Thus, your use of the Services is solely at your own risk.

We may retain your personal information for as long as needed pursuant to the Services. However, We may also be required to retain information longer to comply with legal and regulatory obligations.


As part of the Services, you may sign up to receive emails from Us and you can unsubscribe anytime by clicking on the appropriate link in an email. If the Services enable you to send content to someone else, the information you provide at Our request will be used only for that one-time purpose and will not be stored. By giving Us the necessary information you are acknowledging that you have the right to give it to Us.


For your convenience and information, we may provide links to other websites. Such other websites operate independently from Us and we do not control their privacy practices. We encourage you to review their policies before submitting any personal information to their websites.


We do not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal information from minors under the age of 13 without parental consent. If you are concerned that We may have collected personal information from a minor under the age of 13 without prior parental consent, please contact Us at and We will delete such information.
