Privacy Policy

Welcome to the website (the “Site”) of Trillium Therapeutics Inc. (“Trillium,” “we,” “us” or “our”). We are an immuno-oncology company developing innovative therapies for the treatment of cancer (collectively, including the Site, the “Services”).

This Privacy Policy explains what Personal Information (defined below) we collect in connection with the Services, how we use and share that information, and your choices concerning our data practices. This Privacy Policy is incorporated into and forms part of our Terms of Use.

If you are a California resident, please see the Additional Information for California Residents section.
