Thank you for taking the time to read our Privacy Statement. The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to explain what Shionogi does with personally identifiable information that you provide to us, such as your name, mailing address, job title or email address. The sections below explain more about how your personally identifiable information will be protected, who we may share it with, and for what purposes.
1. Collection of Information
Many of our services do not require any form of registration or identification. However, some of our services may require registration. This allows us to send you information that you request or to contact you about Shionogi products and services on either a one-time basis, or longer. Registration is optional but if you choose to withhold any personal data requested by us, please note that it may not be possible for you to gain access to certain parts of the site or for us to provide information or services that you have requested.
2. Data Integrity
Shionogi limits the collection and processing of personal information to what is necessary to fulfill the intended purpose of requesting such data. Shionogi also takes reasonable steps to ensure that any personal data collected is accurate, complete, and current.
We request your permission to collect your personally identifiable information when you seek to register for a Shionogi program or service. In doing so, we also explain the purpose for the collection of your personal information and how we plan to use it. We also offer you the option to discontinue your consent if you later decide that you no longer want to participate in a program or service (also known as "opting out" or "unsubscribing"). If we wish to use this information for purposes other than those for which the data was initially collected, we will seek your consent for the use of the information for the other purposes, and also offer a means to opt out of the secondary use if you do not wish to consent to such use.
4. Sharing Your Information with Third Parties
Shionogi will not share your personal information with unaffiliated third parties for their own use unless we have obtained your consent to do so. When you provide personally identifiable information to Shionogi, you acknowledge and consent that it will be accessible to some of Shionogi's business partners, such as companies we retain to fulfill requests for information or provide assistance on specific programs or projects. Shionogi requires third parties to whom it discloses personal data to protect personal information using substantially similar standards to those required by Shionogi. We also require that these third parties not use your personal information for any use that is not specifically authorized by Shionogi.
There may also be instances in which Shionogi is required to share your information with third parties who have not been retained by us (directly or indirectly), such as if we are required to do so because of an applicable law, court order or governmental regulation, or if such disclosure is otherwise necessary in support of a criminal or other legal investigation or proceeding. Entities receiving personally identifiable information under these conditions typically have privacy requirements that apply to their handling of your information.
Personal Information collected from you may also be transferred to a third party in the event that the business of this site and the customer data connected with it is sold, assigned or transferred. In the event that such sale, assignment or transfer should occur, Shionogi would require the buyer, assignee or transferee to treat your information in accordance with this Privacy Statement.
5. Sharing Information with Other Shionogi Companies or Affiliates
The information that you provide to Shionogi may sometimes be shared with other companies within the Shionogi group. This may mean that your personally identifiable information may be transferred outside of your jurisdiction to Shionogi companies or affiliates in other countries. We will ensure that other Shionogi companies or affiliates that may receive your information will abide by substantially similar privacy requirements relating to your personally identifiable information.
6. Security of Your Information
We use appropriate technical, administrative and physical safeguards to protect data that you provide to us from loss, misuse or alteration.
7. Transfer of Your Information
In the event that Shionogi transfers personal information to countries other than the country where the information was provided, we will do so in compliance with applicable privacy laws. We strive to protect personal information entrusted to us no matter what country the information is stored in or transferred to, and seek to have appropriate procedures in place to help ensure the security of your personal information.
8. Protection of Children
Shionogi will not knowingly collect, use or disclose personally identifiable information from a minor, without obtaining prior consent from a parent or guardian. Shionogi abides by the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) in the United States, and respects similar laws of other countries that protect the privacy of children. Should a person whom we know to be minor provide personally identifiable information to us, we will only use that information to respond directly to that person to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before we can receive his or her information.
9. Updating and Accessing Information
We encourage you to update the information that you provide to us to ensure that such information is accurate and current (e.g., updating your mailing address if you move). This will help us continue to provide information that best meets your needs. All requests to update or access your information will be subject to verification of the identity of the requesting individual, to help protect your data from unauthorized access or alteration by third parties. Shionogi complies with laws and regulations applicable to the right to amend your data in our files.
10. Retention of your personal information
We will cease to retain your personal information or remove the means by which the personal data can be associated with you as soon as it is reasonable to assume that the purpose for which the personal data was collected is no longer being served by retention of the personal data and that retention is no longer necessary for legal or business purposes.
11. Updates to Shionogi Privacy Statement
Shionogi may update this Privacy Statement from time to time. We encourage you to review our Privacy Statement periodically so that you aware of any changes.
