4.1 If our processing of your information is subject to the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”), we may have obligations to you and you have additional rights under the GDPR.   

We will process your personal data in order to provide our website to you. The lawful bases under GDPR for processing your data may include:   

  • when you have given consent;
  • when processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in order to take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract; or
  • when processing is necessary to protect our legitimate interests or that of a third party, except where such interests are overridden by your interests or fundamental rights.

We may rely on more than one of the lawful bases under GDPR for processing your information described above.

4.2 If you are a resident of the EU, the GDPR grants you certain legal rights. In particular, you have the following rights:

  • the right to confirmation as to whether we process your personal data and the right to access such personal data;
  • the right to rectification;
  • the right to erasure;
  • the right to restrict processing;
  • the right to object to processing;
  • the right to data portability; and
  • the right to withdraw consent.

In some circumstances, these rights are qualified or limited by countervailing interests. Nevertheless, if you wish to exercise any of these rights, please contact us at privacy@versobio.com.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the relevant EU supervisory authority.

4.3 Our legal bases for collecting and using the personal information described in this Privacy Policy from EU residents depends on the personal information we collect and the specific context in which we collect it.  We may process an EU resident’s personal information because: (i) we need to perform a contract with you; (ii) you provided your consent; (iii) the processing is in our legitimate interests and it is not overridden by your rights under applicable law; or (iv) to comply with applicable law.


Our Services not intended for children under the age of 13 and we do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are the parent or guardian of a person under 13 and believe that person provided us with personal information, please contact us at: privacy@versobio.com.  If we become aware that we have collected personal information from children under the age of 13 without verification of parental consent, we will use commercially reasonable efforts to erase or otherwise destroy that information from our systems.


6.1 If you are a California resident, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits you to request information regarding the disclosure of your personal information by us to a third party for the third party’s direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please send an email to privacy@versobio.com or write us at: Verso Biosciences, 417 Mace Blvd, Suite J-204 Davis, CA 95618.

6.2 Some web browsers may transmit “do-not-track” signals to the websites with which the user communicates. Because of differences in how web browsers incorporate and activate this feature, it is not always clear whether users intend for these signals to be transmitted, or whether they even are aware of them. Because there currently is no industry standard concerning what, if anything, websites should do when they receive such signals, we currently do not take action in response to these signals. In some cases, third parties may be able to collect information about a user’s online activities over time and across different websites when he or she uses the Services.


We have implemented administrative, technical, and physical safeguards to help prevent unauthorized access, use, or disclosure of personal information in our custody or control. However, no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure and we cannot guarantee that these safeguards will prevent the unauthorized access, use or disclosure of your personal information.


We will post any changes we make to our Privacy Policy on this page with a notice on this page. If we make changes to how we treat our users’ personal information, we will notify you by email or through a notice on available via the Services. The date the privacy policy was last revised is identified at the top of this page.
