This Policy applies to residents of the United States.
At Dyax Corp., we are committed to respecting your privacy. We understand that
facts about a person's demographic, health, health interests, and health care

Why does Dyax need personal information?
As part of its overall mission, Dyax endeavors to understand the specific needs
and preferences of individuals. We use personal information to identify these
needs and preferences in order to help us design the informational, educational

What type of information does Dyax collect?
We only collect information that you voluntarily provide to us. If you choose to
participate in certain programs and activities conducted by Dyax, we may collect
"personally identifiable information" from you, such as your name, address,
telephone number, and email address that could be used to contact you. When this
information is combined with any information on your health or medical status
(pursuant to all applicable laws), we refer to the resulting information as
"health-related personal information." You may choose at any time not to provide
personally identifiable information or health-related personal information,
although this may restrict your ability to participate in certain programs and
activities conducted by Dyax, as well as to provide requested services or
information. The following are examples of when we may request personally
identifiable information and/or health-related personal information that you may
voluntarily provide to us and how we use it.

interactive services, we will collect the information you may choose to
disclose and analyze it to discover new facts that could help us better
understand how our products are used in coping with the diseases for which
they are marketed. In certain circumstances, we may also combine your
health-related personal information with health-related personal information
obtained from others to create summary data, but in such cases we will
continue to treat such summary data in a manner consistent with this Privacy
