Please be aware that no security system is foolproof. As a result, we cannot guarantee the security of any information transmitted to us and cannot be responsible for the theft, destruction, misuse, unauthorized access, alteration, or inadvertent disclosure of your personal information.

BioCryst stores your personal information for as long as needed: (i) to conduct business with you; (ii) as needed for the purposes outlined in this Privacy Policy or at the time of collection; or (iii) as necessary to comply with legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce any agreements.
