Last Updated: 31 May 2021


This Privacy Policy applies to each company listed in Section 12 below ("Company", "us" or "we"). It explains how we collect, use and disclose information about you.

This Privacy Policy applies to information which identifies you, or from which you can reasonably be identified, such as but not limited to your full name, postal address, telephone number and email address ("personal information").  This Policy describes how we handle the personal information we collect when we provide our services. Our services include but are not limited to: Research & Development, clinical trials, patient monitoring, drug approval processes and applications, drug manufacturing and delivery, collaborating with other organisations, raising capital, interacting with the stakeholders, share registers and employees (collectively, "Company Services").

If you are located:

  • in the European Union (“EU”), you have additional rights under the EU General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”); or
  • in the United Kingdom (UK), you have additional rights under the UK Data Protection Act 2018, which implements the GDPR in the UK.

Details of those additional rights and how we address them are set out at the end of our Privacy Policy.


Privacy matters to us and we understand and acknowledge the importance of keeping your personal information secure.  We are committed to protecting your privacy, keeping your information safe and ensuring the security of your personal information.


This privacy statement explains how we collect, use, disclose and protect your information.  It applies to all businesses in the Noxopharm Group listed in Section 12.  It extends to both our control and processing of your personal information.  It also incorporates our credit reporting statement.

This policy first came into effect on 1 July 2018.  It has been updated over time and we will upload any updated version of our Privacy Policy on our website.


We collect personal information to provide Company Services and for our business operations. If you choose not to provide the information we request from you, we may not be able to provide you with the services you require. We describe the main types of personal information we collect and the main reasons why we collect that information below.

Registration Information is the information you provide to the Company when you register for or acquire a Company Service. This may include information you provide us to:

  • create an account;
  • post comments; or
  • enter a competition.

Information may include, your name, delivery or postal address, email address, telephone number, account details, credit card details, gender and birthday.

We may also collect information that you give to us when you or your representatives interact with us, for example, if you contact us regarding participating in the Company’s Compassionate Use Scheme or a clinical trial.  We also collect information when you use our products and services including from call centres and on-line services.  We collect information from outside sources such as the operator of our share registry, credit reports, marketing mailing lists and public information.  This may include information gained from our partners if you have interacted with them.  This may include business and commercial partners, credit reporting bodies, wholesale and other customers. Noxopharm collects information for requests about any Company information.

Billing and credit information.  We collect information relating to your financial transactions and history with us, such as your payment history, credit history and details of any products or services acquired from the Company.

Public Information and Posts include comments or content that you post to the online Company Services and the information about you that comes with those posts. This may include your name, user name, comments, likes, tweets, status, profile information and picture(s). Public Information and Posts are available to everyone who views our websites and may be displayed in search results on external search engines, even after you cancel your account with us.

Information from third party Social Media. If you access or log-in to a Company Service through a third party social media service or connect a Company Service to your social media profile, we may also include information from that social media service. This may include:

  • your user name for that service;
  • any information or content you have permitted the social media service to share with us (such as your profile picture(s), email address, followers or friends lists); and
  • any other information you have made public (including other posts you make using your social media profile).

We do not collect your social media profile password. When you access Company Services through your social media profile, or when you connect a Company Service to your social media profile, you authorise us to collect and handle your personal information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

Activity Information – cookies and other technologies. When you visit the Company's websites (including to access and use Company Services) we may collect information about your visit. For example, in order to connect you to the Company Services, our servers receive and record information about your computer, device, and browser, which may include your IP address, browser type, and other software or hardware information. If you access the Company Services from a mobile or other device, we may collect a unique device identifier assigned to that device, geolocation data, or other transactional information from that device.

Information from Other Sources. We may supplement the information we collect about you with information from other sources. This may include information from publicly available sources (such as other published content) and data providers, as well as information from our business partners or related and affiliated companies in Australia or internationally.

Information in relation to other persons who deal with us. When you apply for a job or contract with us we may collect information about you to help us decide whether to offer you the job or contract. For example, we may collect information about how to contact you, your education or work history, or other information included in your CV or résumé. We may collect this information from you, or from any recruitment consultant, your previous employers, or other referees. This Privacy Policy does not apply to our collection, use and disclosure of information:

  • we hold about you once you become an employee;
  • we keep after your employment relationship with us ends,

where that collection, use or disclosure relates to your employee relationship with us and the records we hold about you as an employee.

The Company also collects personal information about our suppliers and individuals employed by our suppliers (including service and content providers); medical institutions and contract research organisations (both of which may conduct clinical trials using the Company’s products); contractors; dealers; related companies; agents and corporate customers. We will explain why we are collecting this information and how we will use that information, unless it obvious from the circumstances.

Please note that the Company does not collect ordinarily any personal information of patients involved in clinical trials using our products.


We use the information we collect about you to provide Company Services to you. As part of our service to you we may use your personal information:

  • to enter into contracts with you or third parties;
  • to measure and improve Company Services and their individual features;
  • to improve your experience by delivering content we think you will find relevant, helpful or interesting;
  • to comply with our legal and regulatory requirements; and
  • to respond to your enquiries.

When we collect your information, we may explain that we will use and disclose your information in other ways.

We may also remove certain information or alter the information we collect about you so you can no longer be identified from that information. We do this so that we can use it or disclose it to third parties for other purposes.

We use the information we collect about you for the following additional purposes:

Research and data analysis. We may also use your information for research and data analysis to improve Company Services. We may do this research or engage a service provider to do this.

This might include our share registry operator, providers of cloud services, website hosting service providers, debt collection service providers and direct marketing service providers. These third parties may be located in a range of different countries including but not limited to the United Kingdom, United States of America, Canada, Hong Kong and Singapore. Our agreements with these third party providers require them not to use your information except for the purpose for which your information was provided. We also require them to comply with relevant privacy laws and to reasonably protect your information.

To allow social sharing functionality. If you log in with or connect a social media profile with your Company Services account, we may share your personal information (including your user name, picture, tweets, likes and posts) with other Company Services users and your friends or followers linked to your social media profile. We may also share the same information with the social media service provider.

To provide co-branded services and features. We may offer co-branded services together with a third party ("Co-Branded Services"). When this happens, we may share the information you submit in connection with the Co-Branded Service with the third party, or with our service providers who assist us to host Co-Branded Services. The third party’s use of your information will be governed by their own privacy policy. We will obtain your consent to share your personal information with the third party. If you do not provide this consent, you may not be able to access that co-branded service.

To deliver relevant content. We may combine information that we hold about you with information about you that we collect from other trusted businesses with whom you also have a relationship or from public sources and we may associate your browser and/or device with other browsers or devices you use.

We may store your information in hard copy or electronic format and keep it in storage facilities that we own and operate ourselves or that are owned and operated by service providers.


We use reasonable measures to safeguard the personal information we hold about you from loss, theft and unauthorised use, disclosure or modification, including:
