Codexis, Inc. (“Codexis”) respects the privacy of information relating to individuals and values the confidence of its employees, customers, vendors and partners.

This Privacy Policy sets forth Codexis’ practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of personally identifiable information that you may provide through your use of this website. Please read this entire Privacy Policy before using this site or submitting personally identifiable information to Codexis through this website.

By using this site and whenever you submit information through this site to Codexis, you agree with the terms of Codexis’ Privacy Policy written below.

Who is Responsible for the Processing of Personally Identifiable information?

Codexis, Inc., with offices in the United States, is responsible for processing your personally identifiable information.

Who is the Data Protection Officer of Codexis?

You can contact our data protection officer at DataPrivacyOfficer@codexis.com.

Personally Identifiable Information

Codexis only collects personally identifiable information, such as your name, address, job title, industry segment, telephone number and email address, when you voluntarily submit this information to Codexis.  Codexis may collect this information through its “Contact” page and through its “E-Store” when you place an order for enzymes.

Cookies and Other Non-Personally Identifiable Information

We may sometimes collect information about your usage of our site through cookies and similar technology. There are two types of cookies: session cookies (non-persistent cookies) and persistent cookies. Session cookies temporarily store non-personally identifiable information about your visit to our website in your computer’s memory. The cookie is deleted as soon as you close your browser. Persistent or permanent cookies will uniquely identify your browser and will permanently save in your computer’s memory information requested by the website.

With cookies, the information that we collect and share is anonymous and not personally identifiable. It does not contain your name, address, telephone number, or email address.

We may also track the total number of visitors to our website, the number of visitors to each page of the website, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers.  We may ask users that have opted to receive information to complete a survey.  No personally identifiable information is gathered in any of these processes.

How Codexis Uses This Information

Personally Identifiable Information

We may use your personally identifiable information to:

  • communicate with you about our business;
  • provide publications, products and services you have requested;
  • invite you to, and register you for, events;
  • add you to mailing lists and send you marketing materials we believe will be of interest to you;
  • process and respond to requests, enquiries and complaints; and
  • for other purposes and operations which are reasonably related, such as administering, monitoring and improving this site, our products and services.

Codexis does not sell any of your personally identifiable information for marketing or advertising purposes.

Cookies and Other Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Cookies allow us to bring you the content and features likely to be of greatest interest to you based on your previous activities on our site.  We use other non-personally identifiable information, including information obtained through surveys, to improve this site.

Storage and Transfer of Information

Codexis may store personally identifiable data collected via this site in an electronic database.  In addition, personally identifiable data collected through the “Contact” Codexis function on this site may be stored by Codexis at SalesForce.com, while personally identifiable data collected through Codexis’ “E-Store” may be stored by Codexis at Codexis’ “E-Store” hosting site, Wix.com. Codexis may also exchange such data with you over the internet or over intranet systems for the purposes of processing the data, mailing information to you in response to your request, or otherwise carrying out the services described above.  We may also release your personally identifiable data in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or applicable law or regulation. Your information may be accessed by third party service providers who will process that information solely for our benefit and in accordance with our instructions.

We use measures that are appropriate to protect your personally identifiable information against unauthorized access, improper use or disclosure, unauthorized or unlawful destruction or accidental loss, and all our employees and any third parties that process your personally identifiable information on our behalf are obliged to respect the confidentiality of your information.

While Codexis makes every reasonable effort to protect the personally identifiable data collected through its website, please be aware that there is always some risk involved when submitting data over the Internet. We cannot guarantee that our website is 100% safe from illegal tampering or “hacking.”

Storage Period

We retain information that is collected through this site for as long as needed for the purpose for which it was provided, or as otherwise required for our legitimate business purposes.  Your information may be retained for longer periods if there are valid legal grounds, for example if required by law or court order or to defend or pursue legal claims.

Legal Basis for Processing Your Personally identifiable information

The majority of the personally identifiable information collected by Codexis is provided by you voluntarily through your use of www.codexis.com, for example, when you complete a request on its “Contact” page and through its “E-Store” when you place an order for our products, and therefore is collected with your permission.  The remaining personally identifiable information is collected for Codexis’ legitimate business purposes, for example to monitor and improve the quality of www.codexis.com and our services, and to protect and defend our rights, property or safety or that of our customers and other users of www.codexis.com.

Cookies and Other Non-Personally Identifiable Information

Your Web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, sites like ours that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the site and some site functionality may be lost.

The privacy policy presented here does not apply to those sites. You should contact these sites directly for information on their privacy policies, confidentiality agreements, and data collection/distribution procedures.

Please note that linked non-Codexis sites may also use cookies. Codexis cannot control the use of cookies by these non-Codexis sites. In addition, when you link from a Codexis website to another website, that site may have the ability to recognize that you have come from a Codexis site. If you do not want any other websites to know that you have been on this website, we recommend that you do not use the links provided in our site.
