Information Management Practices
Shionogi may obtain personal data from multiple sources, including its affiliates and parent company, as well as individuals who provide information directly through our website (e.g., when requesting information or applying for a job). This personal data may include names, telephone numbers, email addresses and other details relevant to our business. We also may automatically collect certain usage information about individuals when they access or use our website, and we may obtain information about individuals from other third-party sources. We use this information for lawful purposes such as managing our users’ online experiences, conducting transactions, providing customer service, preventing fraud or other policy violations and communicating with users to respond to requests or send marketing information.
We limit the collection and use of this personal data to that which is necessary to administer our business, provide customer support and comply with applicable law. We may disclose or transfer personal data to our affiliates, agents, vendors, consultants, marketing service providers and other service providers who perform functions on our behalf. In such instances, we enter into written contracts with such third parties to detail the restrictions and safeguards regarding the information. In addition, Shionogi remains liable for the security of personal information transferred in these contexts, with limited exceptions. We also may share information to comply with law, protect our rights or the rights of third parties, for internal business purposes or in connection with commercial transactions such as mergers or asset transfers.
Shionogi complies with the Privacy Shield Principle concerning accountability for onward transfers and may be liable with respect to the onward transfer to third parties of EU data subjects’ personal data received pursuant to the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield.
Please note that in certain situations Shionogi may be obligated to disclose personal data in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements.
Access and Limitation Rights
EU data subjects have the right to access personal data maintained about them and to impose certain limits on the use and disclosure of such personal data. We will respond to requests from EU data subjects to opt out of our sharing their personal data with unaffiliated third parties, and will request opt-in consent prior to using EU personal data for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected.
