Shionogi Inc. Privacy Statement

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 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.

  3. Consent. 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 also offer a means to opt out of the secondary use.

  4. Collection of Anonymous Computer Information. When you visit our web sites, we do not collect any personally identifiable information about you without your permission. However, we do collect anonymous information about you if your computer is set to allow that type of collection. This type of information allows us to monitor traffic on our web sites, evaluate customer interest and perform other market research activities, such as surveying browsing habits on our sites.

  5. 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, 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.

  6. 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 the US to Shionogi affiliates in other countries. Other Shionogi companies or affiliates that may receive your information will abide by substantially similar privacy requirements relating to your personally identifiable information.

  7. 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. Despite these safeguards, it is not possible to guarantee the absolute security of personal information. Internet transmissions, particularly email transmissions, are never 100% secure or error-free. We also caution you to guard your own computer and password against unauthorized access by others.

  8. Links to Other Sites. This Privacy Statement applies only to this web site and not to third party web sites. This web site may contain links or references to other web sites maintained by third parties over which Shionogi has no control. Similarly, this web site may be accessed via third party links or web sites over which Shionogi has no control. While we aim to ensure that such web sites are of a high standard, we cannot guarantee the privacy standards of web sites to which we link. This Privacy Policy is not intended to be applicable to any linked, non-Shionogi site.

  9. 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.

  10. Protection of Children. Shionogi will not knowingly collect, use or disclose personally identifiable information from a minor under the age of 13, 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 child whom we know to be under 13 provide personally identifiable information to us, we will only use that information to respond directly to that child to inform him or her that we must have parental consent before we can receive his or her information.

  11. 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.

  12. 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 are aware of any changes.
