This Privacy Policy sets out the privacy policies and practices for Transition Therapeutics Inc. (“Transition”, “we”, or “us” as the context provides) with respect to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information in connection with this website and other websites operated or provided by Transition (the “Websites”). Your use of the Websites is governed by the Terms of Use and Disclaimer. In this Privacy Policy, “personal information” means any information about an identifiable individual, as further defined under applicable Canadian laws.

Collection of Information

Transition collects personal information from you if you request information or services from Transition and may collect additional personal information in the course of providing that information or those services. Personal information that we collect may include your name, contact information (such as email address, mailing address, telephone number, and fax number), demographic information (such as gender, age, and occupation), and personal preferences.

Transition may collect and analyze non-personal information to evaluate how visitors use the Websites, including non personal information about usage and service operation that is not associated with a specific personal identity. Transition also automatically receives and records information on our server logs, which information may include your computer’s IP address and “cookie” information. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer. The only information a cookie can collect is information supplied by you. A cookie cannot read data off of your computer.

Use of Information

Contact information that you provide to Transition may be used to contact you in connection with the Websites. Transition will also use information supplied by you to fulfil your requests for information about our products and services or to fulfil the purposes for which the information was collected. We may also use information to improve our marketing and promotional efforts, to statistically analyze usage of the Websites, to improve the Websites and better tailor them to meet our users’ needs, to manage Transition’s relationship with you, to provide you with marketing material where you have opted to receive these materials or for regular mailing lists that you have requested to receive. We may use personal information for additional purposes that may be identified at or before the time that the information is collected.

Transition will retain the personal information only as long as necessary for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy or as required or permitted by law.

We may share personal information with third-party subcontractors and agents who work on our behalf and third party service providers to provide certain products and services. Such third parties do not have the right to use personal information beyond what is necessary to assist Transition, and they are contractually obligated to maintain confidentiality and security of the personal information and are restricted from using such information in any way not expressly authorized by Transition.

Disclosure of Information

Transition may disclose your personal information as follows:
  • to third party service providers and to affiliated entities in order to carry out work on behalf of Transition,
  • to law enforcement agencies for the purposes of investigating fraud or other offences,
  • to legal, financial, insurance, and other advisors or in connection with the sale, reorganization, or management of all or part of its business or operations,
  • to establish or exercise our legal rights or defend against legal claims,
  • as consented to by you from time to time, including to fulfill any other purposes that are identified when the personal information is collected, or
  • as otherwise permitted pursuant to applicable laws.
Transition will not use or disclose personal information for purposes other than those for which it was collected, except with your consent or as required or permitted by law. Consent may be express or implied, and given in writing by using or not using a check-off box, electronically, orally, or by the user’s conduct, such as use of the services or products.


When appropriate, users of the Websites are given the opportunity to (i) opt-out of receiving communications from us, (ii) remove their personal information from our records, or (iii) elect to no longer receive information from us. If you wish to opt-out in the manner as listed above, please contact our privacy officer at .


Transition takes steps to protect the loss, misuse, and alteration of our users’ personal information. We limit access to personal information to individuals who we reasonably believe need to access the information to utilize the information as set out in this Privacy Policy. However, it is possible that any information transmitted via the Internet may be intercepted by unknown third parties.


You may contact our privacy officer to modify or correct any of your personal information that is under our control. You may also direct a written complaint regarding compliance with this Privacy Policy to the privacy officer and, within a reasonable time upon receiving the written complaint, the privacy officer will conduct an investigation into the matter. Within a reasonable time of concluding the investigation, the privacy officer will inform you whether the complaint will be allowed or denied. If the privacy officer allows the complaint, Transition will take appropriate measure necessary to rectify the source of the complaint.


Transition is not responsible for the privacy practices of other websites. We encourage you to read the privacy policy of web sites operated by third parties. This Privacy Policy applies solely to information collected through the Websites.

Transition may update this Privacy Policy from time to time. It is your responsibility to periodically review this Privacy Policy to remain informed of Transition’s current privacy practices.
