Privacy Policy


This Privacy Policy (Policy) describes the privacy practices of Alto Neuroscience,Inc. and its subsidiaries (“Alto”, “we”, “us’ or “our”), including but not limited to, those applicable to the website maintained by Alto at and any of Alto’s social media offerings (Website).

Protecting the privacy and security of your personal information is important to Alto. This Policy is designed to help you understand what data Alto may collect and how Alto uses and safeguards that data.

We may change this Policy at any time by updating it on our Website.

1. Personal Information We Collect

Personal Information is any information related to an identifiable person (Personal Information).

Alto will only collect Personal Information for the purpose of conducting its business and in compliance with all applicable laws.

When you use this Website, Alto may collect the Personal Information you provide us including Personal Information you may provide us in order to access specific information or participate in any of our registries or clinical studies. In addition, as you navigate the Website, certain passive information may also be collected, including internet protocol addresses, cookies, navigational data, the name of the domain and host from which you access the Internet, the browser software you use and your operating system, the date and time you access the Website, and the Internet address of the website from which you linked directly to the Website.

We may also collect Personal Information if we conduct or sponsor surveys, business or marketing events, when you apply for employment or consulting roles and when you contact us via e-mail for information or assistance.

We generally do not collect Personal Information directly from participants that participate in our clinical studies because our clinical studies are usually sponsored by us but conducted by third party clinical sites that collect the Personal Information. The participant data that we obtain from the sites is de-identified meaning that a participant’s identifiable information is replaced with a code, and there is no reasonable basis to believe that the participant data that we obtain can be used to identify that individual. We do however collect PersonalInformation directly from participants that join our registries (in particular our Mental Health Research Registry) and in certain clinical studies that we may sponsor and conduct internally.

2. Use and Disclosure of Personal Information

Alto will generally only use Personal Information for the purpose for which it was provided and in compliance with all applicable laws. Depending on how you interact with Alto, we and our third-party service providers may use Personal Information in the following ways:

• Alto may use the Personal Information about you to measure interest in our Website and business, perform internal quality control, and send communications regarding the Website and our business.

• Alto may use and share your de-identified information within Alto or with third parties for public health, research, analytics and any other legally permissible purposes. Such information is not Personal Information.

• Alto may disclose Personal Information if Alto believes in good faith that such disclosure is necessary to comply with relevant laws.
• Alto may use your Personal Information for other purposes disclosed to you at the time you provide Personal Information or with your consent.

Before disclosing Sensitive Personal Information (a subset of Personal Information which, due to its nature, has been classified by law or by policy as deserving additional privacy and security protections; examples include health information, genetic and biometric data, race or ethnic origin, religious or philosophical beliefs, financial account numbers and government issued identifiers) to a third party or processing Sensitive Personal Information for any purpose you have not explicitly authorized, Alto will get your explicit consent.Alto will not sell Personal Information and Alto will not disclose Personal Information to third parties for their marketing purposes.
