Thank you for visiting one of the websites (the "Websites") operated by Takeda Pharmaceutical Company, its affiliates or subsidiaries (collectively, "Takeda").

This privacy policy (the "Privacy Policy") applies to the personal information collected on Takeda Websites. The term "personal information", as used throughout this Privacy Policy, applies to any information that is used by or on behalf of Takeda to identify an individual.

This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use, share, and protect the personal information you provide to us at this Website. This Privacy Policy only applies to personal information we collect at our Websites and via the electronic communications technologies that we use. It does not apply to personal information collected through other means, including personal information you provide in e-mail messages you send to us or personal information we may collect from you offline. This Privacy Policy is intended for all visitors of Takeda Websites, including consumers, healthcare professionals, and Takeda business partners.

Personal Information Collected

In general, you may browse the Takeda Websites without providing any personal information. At our Websites, we may provide you with opportunities to sign up to receive information or services from us. As part of this process, we ask you to provide us with personal information about you (such as name, address, telephone number or e-mail address). For example, you may choose to register to receive e-mail updates about a Website, information about a particular health condition, or materials relating to products or services offered by Takeda and its product-related co-promotion partners. You may always choose not to provide us with your personal information, and we will disclose to you at the time we collect your personal information whether it is required for you to receive the information or services you have requested.

To better understand and address your interests, and to keep the personal information we have about you accurate, we may correct or add to the personal information you provide to us at our Websites with personal information we receive from you offline or from other sources.

Your Choices

You have several choices regarding your use of our Websites. You could decide not to submit any personal information at all. Although certain Websites may ask for permission to use your personal information for certain purposes, you can agree or decline to provide your personal information. If you subscribe for particular communications or services such as e-mail updates, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by: (i) following any opt-out instructions contained in communications you receive from Takeda, (ii) unsubscribing at specific areas of the Websites where you registered, if available, or (iii) sending a written request to the Takeda contact address, which appears at the end of this Privacy Policy.

As described above, if you wish to prevent cookies from tracking you as you navigate our Websites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Please note, however, that some portions of our Websites may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

Use of Personal Information

Takeda and its service providers will use your personal information to provide information and services to you, including information and services you have requested, or as otherwise disclosed to you in this Privacy Policy or on the web page where you submit your personal information to us. We may also use that information to provide you with materials about products and services offered by Takeda and its product-related co-promotion partners, including new content or services on our Websites. We may provide you with these materials by phone, mail, facsimile, or e-mail. We do not share any of your personal information with third parties for their own direct marketing purposes unless we have your consent.

We may use aggregate information collected from visitors of our Websites to help us better understand visitors' needs and how they use the Websites. Aggregate information about Website visitors that does not contain personal information may be shared with third parties.

Note to Healthcare Professionals and Business Partners
If you have a business or professional relationship with Takeda, we may use your personal information, including personal information we may collect about you from other sources, to develop our business relationship with you and your organization.

Sharing of Personal Information

Takeda may share your personal information within Takeda when necessary to fulfil a legitimate business purpose or to comply with applicable legal requirements (for example, drug/patient safety).

Takeda may share your personal information with service providers retained by Takeda to perform services on their behalf, including provision of information and services you have requested.

Takeda has entered into appropriate contractual arrangements with such service providers prohibiting them from using or sharing your personal information, except as necessary to perform the contracted services on behalf of Takeda, or to comply with applicable law.

Some of Takeda's group companies and/or service providers may be located in countries outside of the European Economic Area ("EEA") whose laws may not afford your personal information the same level of protection as that available in the EEA. Takeda will ensure that all adequate safeguards are in place and that all applicable laws and regulations are complied with in connection with such transfers.

Takeda reserves the right to share your personal information in the event it sells, licenses, or transfers all or any part of its business or assets. Should such a sale, lease (licensing), or transfer take place, Takeda will make reasonable efforts to direct the transferee to use any personal information about you in a way that is consistent with this policy.

Takeda does not share any of your personal information with third parties for their own marketing or promotional purposes.

Takeda may need to disclose your personal information to government agencies, regulatory bodies, and/or the courts, if required to do so to comply with a legal or regulatory requirement.

Personal Information of Children

Our Websites are intended for persons 18 years of age and older. Any individual who requests information about a medicine indicated for use in children must be 18 or over. We will not knowingly collect, use, or disclose personal information from a minor under the age of 18, without obtaining prior consent from a person with parental responsibility (e.g., a parent or guardian) through direct off-line contact. We will provide the parent with (i) notice of the specific types of personal information being collected from the minor, and (ii) the opportunity to object to any further collection, use, or storage of such information. We abide by laws designed to protect children.

Our Websites may provide links to other websites as a service to you. The third-party websites are operated by companies that are outside of our control, and your activities at those websites will be governed by the policies and privacy practices of those third parties. We do not recommend or endorse the content of these websites. We encourage you to review the policies and privacy practices of those third parties before disclosing any of your personal information, as we are not responsible for their policies and privacy practices.

How We Protect Your Personal Information

Takeda takes appropriate technical, administrative, and organisational measures to safeguard your personal information from loss, misuse, and unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.

Takeda will securely retain and store your personal information for as long as it is needed for the purposes for which it was collected and used, and will only continue to retain and store such personal information for as long as required or permitted by law.

Changing Your Preferences; Including Opt Out

When you provide us with your personal information, you will be given some choices about how we use that personal information. You may change these preferences later. For example, if you sign up for an e-mail newsletter, you may opt out of receiving future e-mail newsletters at any time. Takeda will always provide you with one or more of the following ways to opt out: (i) by following any opt-out instructions contained in communications you receive from Takeda, (ii) by unsubscribing at specific areas of the Website(s) where you registered, if available, or (iii) by sending a written request to the Takeda contact address immediately below.

Takeda takes steps to keep your personal information accurate and up-to-date. In addition you may, in writing, (i) request a copy of any personal information Takeda holds about you; (ii) request correction or deletion of personal information about you that is inaccurate, incomplete, or irrelevant and (iii) request further information about Takeda's policies and practices in relation to personal information.
