Your privacy is important to us at Intellia Therapeutics, Inc. and our affiliates and subsidiaries (“Intellia”). For this reason, we want you to be familiar with how we collect, use, and disclose information. This Privacy Policy describes our practices in connection with information collected through the Website operated and controlled by us from which you are accessing this Privacy Policy (each, the “Website”). By providing personal information to us or by using the Website, you agree to the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.

Information collection

Information you provide

Some areas of the Site may ask you to submit personal information in order for you to benefit from the specified features or participate in a particular activity (such as joining our mailing list or applying for a job). You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.

Intellia may combine the information you submit with other information we have collected from you, whether on- or offline, including, for example, your purchase history. We may also combine it with information we receive about you from other sources, such as publicly available information sources (including information from your publicly available social media profiles), our subsidiaries or affiliates, and other third parties.

Passive information collection and use

As you navigate around our Website, certain information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information), using various technologies. Intellia and its third-party service providers may passively collect and use information in a variety of ways, including:

  • Through your browser: Most browsers automatically collect information, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Macintosh), screen resolution, operating system version, and Internet browser type and version. We may collect similar information, such as your device type and identifier, if you access the Website through a mobile device.
  • Using cookies: Cookies are pieces of information stored directly on the computer you are using. Cookies allow us to collect information such as browser type, time spent on the Website, pages visited, and language preferences. Intellia and its service providers use the information for security purposes, to facilitate navigation, display information more effectively, and to personalize your experience while using the Website. We also use cookies to recognize your computer or device, which makes your use of the Website easier. In addition, we use cookies to gather statistical information about Website usage in order to continually improve its design and functionality, understand how people use it, and to assist us with resolving questions about it. Cookies further allow us to select what information is most likely to appeal to you and display such information, while you are on the Website. For more information about cookies, go to
    • Refusing Cookies: Note that you can refuse to accept these cookies by following your browser’s instructions. If you do not accept them, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of the Website. You may also not receive information or other offers from us that are relevant to your interests and needs.
  • Using pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs, or other similar technologies: Intellia may use pixel tags, web beacons, clear graphic interchange formats (GIFs) or other similar technologies in connection with some Website pages and HTML-formatted email messages to, among other things, track the actions of Website users and email recipients, and compile statistics about Website usage and response rates.
  • IP Address: Your IP Address is a number that is automatically assigned to the computer that you are using by your Internet Service Provider. An IP Address is identified and logged automatically in our server log files whenever a user visits the Site, along with the time of the visit and the page(s) that were visited. Collecting IP Addresses is standard practice on the Internet and is done automatically by many websites. We use IP Addresses for purposes such as calculating Website usage levels, helping diagnose server problems, and administering the Website.
  • Device Information: We also may collect information about your mobile device, such as a unique device identifier.
