What are cookies?
Cookies are small data files stored on your computer or mobile device by a website. Our Site may use both session cookies (which expire once you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which stay on your computer or mobile device until you delete them) to provide you with a more personal and interactive experience on our Site.
We use two broad categories of cookies: (1) first party cookies, served directly by us to your computer or mobile device, which we use to recognize your computer or mobile device when it revisits our Site; and (2) third party cookies, which are served by service providers or business partners on our Site, and can be used by such service providers or business partners to recognise your computer or mobile device when it visits other websites.
Cookies we use
Our Site uses the following types of cookies for the purposes set out below:
|Type of cookie||Purpose|
|Essential Cookies||These cookies are essential to provide you with services available through our Site and to enable you to use some of its features. Without these cookies, the services that you have asked for cannot be provided, and we only use these cookies to provide you with those services.|
|Functionality Cookies||These cookies allow our Site to remember choices you make when you use our Site. The purpose of these cookies is to provide you with a more personal experience and to avoid you having to re-select your preferences every time you visit our Site.|
|Analytics and Performance Cookies||These cookies collect information about traffic to our Site and about how individuals use our Site. The information gathered may include the types of information described above in the section titled “Information automatically collected”. We use this information to help operate our Site more efficiently, to gather broad demographic information, monitor the level of activity on our Site, and improve the Site.|
We use Google Analytics, Marketo, Bizible, and VWO for this purpose. Google Analytics, Marketo, Bizible, and VWO use their own cookies.

These cookies use information about your browsing history to group you with other users who have similar interests or browsing behavior.

If you do not accept our cookies, you may experience some inconvenience in your use of our Site.
In addition to cookies, our Site may use other technologies, such as Flash technology to pixel tags to collect information automatically.
We may use Flash cookies (which are also known as Flash Local Shared Object (“LSOs”)) on our Site to collect and store information about your use of our Site. Unlike other cookies, Flash cookies cannot be removed or rejected via your browser settings.

Additional Information for European Union Users
Hyper Labs, Inc. is the controller of your personal information for purposes of European data protection legislation. See the Contact Us section above for contact details.
When Hyperscience processes personal information of individuals in the EU, Hyperscience adheres to certain data processing principles. Under these principles, personal data is:
- Processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the data subject
- Collected for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with those purposes
- Adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in relation to the purposes for which they are processed
- Accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date
- Kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed

Hyperscience implements appropriate technical and organizational measures that are designed to give effect to these data protection principles.
Legal bases for processing
In respect of each of the purposes for which we use your Personal Data, the GDPR requires us to ensure that we have a “legal basis” for that use. Most commonly, we will rely on one of the following legal bases:
- Where we need to perform a contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you (“Contractual Necessity”).
- Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests (“Legitimate Interests”). More detail about the specific legitimate interests pursued in respect of each Purpose we use your Personal Data for is set out in the table below.
- Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation (“Compliance with Law”).
- Where we have your specific consent to carry out the processing for the Purpose in question (“Consent”). Generally, we do not rely on your Consent as a legal basis for using your Personal Data other than in the context of direct marketing communications.
We have set out below, in a table format, the legal bases we rely on in respect of the relevant Purposes for which we use your Personal Data.

Use for new purposes
We will only retain your Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes for which we collected it, including for the purposes of satisfying any legal, accounting, or reporting requirements.
To determine the appropriate retention period for personal information, we consider the amount, nature, and sensitivity of the personal information, the potential risk of harm from unauthorized use or disclosure of your personal information, the purposes for which we process your personal information and whether we can achieve those purposes through other means, and the applicable legal requirements.
When we no longer require the personal information we have otherwise collected about you, we will dissociate such information from the information attached to your content. In some circumstances we may anonymize your personal information (so that it can no longer be associated with you), in which case we may use this information indefinitely without further notice to you.
Your rights relating to your Personal Data
European data protection laws give European Union users certain rights regarding their personal information. If you are located within the European Union, you may ask us to take the following actions in relation to your personal information that we hold:
- Opt-out . Stop sending you direct marketing communications. You may continue to receive service-related and other non-marketing emails.
- Withdraw consent. This right only exists where we are relying on consent to process your Personal Data. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide you with access to the certain specific functionalities of our Site. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
- Access . Provide you with information about our processing of your personal information and give you access to your personal information.
- Correct . Update or correct inaccuracies in your personal information.

If you want to exercise any of the rights described above, you can submit these requests by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or our postal address provided above. We may request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and process your request. This is a security measure to ensure that Personal Data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response. Applicable law may require or permit us to decline your request. If we decline your request, we will tell you why, subject to legal restrictions. If you would like to submit a complaint about our use of your personal information or response to your requests regarding your personal information, you may contact us or submit a complaint to the data protection regulator in your jurisdiction. You can find your data protection regulator here.
Cross-Border Data Transfer
As you can see from the above, we share your Personal Data both with our affiliated companies and certain external third parties who are based outside the European Economic Area. Any processing of your Personal Data by these parties will involve an export of your Personal Data outside the European Economic Area.
Whenever we transfer your personal information out of the European Economic Area or the UK to countries not deemed by the European Commission to provide an adequate level of personal information protection, we ensure a similar degree of protection is afforded to it by ensuring at least one of the following safeguards is implemented:
- Pursuant to the recipient’s compliance with Standard Contractual Clauses, or Binding Corporate Rules
- Pursuant to the consent of the individual to whom the personal information pertains
- As otherwise permitted by applicable European requirements.
Please contact us if you want further information on the specific mechanism used by us when transferring your personal information out of Europe.
