Last UpdatedFebruary 12th, 2024

This Privacy Policy describes how Neuralink Corp. (“Neuralink”, “we”, “us”, or “our”) collects, uses, discloses and otherwise processes personal information. “Personal information” means information about an identifiable individual as described under applicable privacy laws.

We may provide additional privacy notices to individuals at the time we collect their personal information. For example, our privacy practices in connection with clinical trials are governed by applicable clinical trial protocol(s) and related informed consents and, where applicable, HIPAA authorization forms. Also, the informed consent form to participate in the Neuralink Patient Registry describes our privacy practices with respect to personal information collected as part of the Neuralink Patient Registry. This type of an “in-time” notice will govern how we may process the personal information you provide at that time.

We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. The “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy indicates when this Privacy Policy was last revised. Any changes will become effective when we post the revised Privacy Policy.

  • Web beacons, also known as pixel tags, which are used to demonstrate that a webpage or email was accessed or opened, or that certain content was viewed or clicked.

We and the third parties we work with use cookies and similar technologies to collect information about your use of the Website, such as your IP address, browser type, browser version, pages viewed, time spent on pages, links clicked, location and conversion information.

This information is used to compile reports and to help us improve the Website. The reports disclose website trends without identifying individual visitors. You can opt out of Google Analytics without affecting how you visit our Website – for more information on opting out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites you use, visit this Google page:
