This privacy statement (“Privacy Policy”) sets forth how IDERA PHARMACEUTICALS, Inc. (“IDERA”) collects, uses, and protects, or in some cases does not protect, your personal information as you interact with us online through the IDERA website (the “Website”).
We urge you to read this Privacy Policy to learn more about the policies and practices IDERA has developed to safeguard personal information, to manage our relationships with the third parties who may have access to personal information, and to comply with applicable data-protection laws. You will also find information about how to contact us regarding this Privacy Policy.
IDERA reserves the right to change this Privacy Policy at any time by posting a new privacy statement at this location. Therefore, you are responsible for periodically checking the Privacy Policy for changes. Your use of the Website is governed at all times by the IDERA Terms of Use.


Personal Information. Generally, you can access and view the Website without disclosing any personally identifiable information. We do not obtain personal information (e.g., name, address, email address, etc.) about you when you visit our Website unless you choose voluntarily to provide such information. Some areas of our Website may request or require contact or other information. We do not share your information with any third party without your consent, except to the limited extent described below under “Use of Collected Information.”

Website Usage. IDERA, or IDERA-authorized service providers, may observe your activities, preferences, and transactional data (such as your IP address and browser type) relating to your use of this Website. While we may collect or log this information, we generally do not identify you or match this information with your other personal information. We may use this collected or logged information to diagnose website technical problems, to facilitate your use of the site, or to track aggregate traffic patterns throughout this Website.

Recruitment and Job Applications. Using direct submission through the Website or by way of separate email, you may provide us with personal information, such as that contained on a résumé or a curriculum vitae, in connection with a job application or inquiry. We may use this information throughout IDERA (worldwide) for the purpose of employment consideration or your inquiry. We may keep your information on file for future consideration.

Non-Public Areas. We may ask you to provide personal information through a registration form before providing you access to restricted areas of the Website. Regardless of any other provision of this Privacy Policy, we may permanently store any personal information provided by you via such registration form.

Children. The Website content and services are intended for users over the age of 18. The Website is not designed to attract child users. If we learn that an under-18 user has volunteered personally identifying and/or health-related personal information on the Website, or that a provider has volunteered information about a patient who is identified as younger than 18, we will delete such information from our active databases. Because we do not knowingly collect any personal information from children under 18, we do not use or disclose such information to third parties.


Certain Third-Party Transactions. We may disclose your voluntarily provided personal information to third parties we engage to provide services that involve data processing on our behalf.

Mergers, Acquisitions, and Bankruptcy. If IDERA should ever file for bankruptcy or merge with another company, or if IDERA should decide to buy, sell, or reorganize some part or all of its business, IDERA may be required to disclose your voluntarily provided personal information to prospective or actual purchasers or receive personal information from sellers. It is IDERA’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information disclosed or received in these types of transactions.

As Required by Law and Other Extraordinary Disclosures. IDERA may be required to disclose your personal information if it: (a) believes it is reasonably necessary to comply with legal process (such as a court order, subpoena, search warrant, etc.) or other legal requirements of any governmental authority; (b) would potentially mitigate our liability in an actual or potential lawsuit; (c) is otherwise necessary to protect our rights or property; or (d) is necessary to protect the interest of other users of our Website.


We prefer that your personal information remains as secure as reasonably possible. This Website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alternation of the information under our control including:

  • Data security. We employ various physical, electronic, and procedural measures designed to provide personal information with reasonable protection possible from loss, misuse, or unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Although we may make adequate and reasonable efforts to protect personally identifying information from loss, misuse, or alteration by third parties, you should be aware that there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party could intercept an Internet transmission, or that thieves will find a way to thwart our security systems.
  • Data encryption. We use encryption practices to help ensure the integrity and privacy of some of the personal information you provide to us. Personal information that is collected or displayed through any IDERA website is protected in transit by encryption processes that meet or exceed applicable regulatory standards.
    This Website has security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse, and alternation of the information under our control. However, it is not possible, and we do not guarantee the security or integrity of information you disclose online because a sufficiently powerful attack from an unauthorized third party could compromise your data.


This Website may contain links to third-party sites; however, please be aware that IDERA is not responsible for and cannot control the privacy practices of these other sites. We encourage you to read the privacy policies for these other sites prior to using such sites, as they may differ from ours.


If you have any questions about this privacy statement, the Terms of Use, the practices of this Website, or your dealings with this Website, you can contact
