Privacy Policy

Introduction

Opexa Therapeutics, Inc. respects your privacy and is committed to protecting it. We recognize your need for appropriate protection and management of the personal information we learn about you while you visit our web site, www.opexatherapeutics.com. This privacy policy lets you know how we use and protect the information received through our web site. The information that we receive depends on what you do during your visit to our web site, what service(s) you request, and whether you decide to voluntarily give us your personal information.

Purpose and Scope

This privacy policy describes Opexa's current policies and practices with regard to personal information and non-identifying information collected by Opexa through this web site. This privacy policy is independent from Opexa's offline personal information collection practices. The term "personal information" refers to personally identifiable information about you, such as your name, e-mail address, mailing address, telephone and fax number, and any other information that is identified with you personally, including your individual health information. This privacy policy describes how we use that information and how you can control it.

Effective Date

This privacy policy is effective as of April 23, 2010.

Users Outside of the United States

YOU EXPRESSLY CONSENT TO OPEXA'S PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THIS PRIVACY POLICY. YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROCESSED BY OPEXA IN THE COUNTRY WHERE IT WAS COLLECTED AND IN THE UNITED STATES. UNITED STATES LAWS REGARDING PROCESSING OF PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE LESS STRINGENT THAN THE LAWS IN YOUR COUNTRY.

IF YOU REPRESENT AN ORGANIZATION, YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE TO ENSURE THAT EACH MEMBER OF YOUR ORGANIZATION (INCLUDING EMPLOYEES AND CONTRACTORS) ABOUT WHOM PERSONAL INFORMATION MAY BE PROVIDED TO OPEXA HAS GIVEN HIS OR HER EXPRESS CONSENT TO OPEXA'S PROCESSING OF SUCH PERSONAL INFORMATION.

Information Opexa Gathers and Tracks

Opexa collects two kinds of information about visitors to this web site: 1) data that visitors volunteer by signing up to receive Opexa news and information, notifications, product and investor information, press releases, annual reports, SEC filings, completing surveys and forums, and completing forms regarding potential employment opportunities with Opexa; and 2) aggregated tracking data we collect when visitors interact with our web site.

Use of Personal Information

Other than cookies, as described below, the only personal information that Opexa currently collects about you through this web site is the information you voluntarily give us when you use this web site.

Opexa may use the personal information you provide to answer your question or resolve your issue. Opexa also uses this personal information to help us improve the content and functionality of our web site, to better understand our visitors, investors, customers and markets, for marketing purposes, and to improve our products and services. Opexa may use this personal information to contact you in the future to tell you about company news, products or services we believe will be of interest to you. If we do so, each communication we send you will contain instructions permitting you to "opt-out" of receiving future communications.

Similarly, we may provide "subscription" e-mail and mail services, either directly or through affiliates or corporate partners, which enable you to receive current news about Opexa, its products and services, or related medical conditions and procedures. For all such services, we will provide an opportunity to "opt-out" of, or cancel, the subscription.

If you do not wish to receive further information from us, you may also contact us at the email address listed in the "Feedback; Removal from Contact List" section below, and request to be removed from the contact list. Once we receive your request, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to remove your name from the contact list. If you wish to update any of your personal information, please contact us at that email address, and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to update your contact information accordingly. Please be aware, however, that even if we update your personal information in our contact list, or we remove such information, it may still be stored in other databases (including those kept for archival purposes) and may still be used to compile aggregated or demographic information for supply to third parties in accordance with this privacy policy. It is our policy to not provide information that identifies you personally to a third party without your permission, except to process or fulfill your requests, or as otherwise set forth in this privacy policy.

These companies may need personal information about you in order to perform their functions. These companies are not authorized to use the personal information we share with them for any other purpose.
