Takeda Web Site Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting one of the Web sites owned by Takeda California, Inc., its affiliates or subsidiaries ("Takeda"). We have provided this Privacy Policy to describe to you how we collect, use, share and protect the information you provide to us at our Web sites. This Privacy Policy only applies to information we collect at our Web sites, not to information collected through other means, including information you provide through e-mail messages or information we may collect offline from you or other sources. This Privacy Policy is intended for all visitors of Takeda Web sites including health care professionals and other business partners. If you are a health care professional or otherwise have a business relationship with Takeda, we may treat your information differently than information provided by non-professionals. Therefore, please read carefully the "Note to Visitors of Professional Web Sites" in the "Use of Information" section of this Privacy Policy for information regarding our use of information you submit at one of our Web sites.

At some of our Web sites, we may contemplate using your information in a manner not described in this Privacy Policy. If this is the case, those different uses will be disclosed to you at the Web page where personal information is collected, prior to such collection.

From time to time, our internal processes may change, or we may offer new or altered features at our Web sites. If appropriate, we will revise this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to return to this area to read the most recent version of our Privacy Policy. If we alter our practices in a manner that will affect the treatment of the personal information you have already provided, we will attempt to provide visitors who have registered on our Web sites with direct notice of our new Privacy Policy. If you do not agree with the privacy practices described in this Privacy Policy, you should not provide us with your personal information.

Information Collected

Information You Provide

At our Web sites, we allow you 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 could register to receive e-mail updates about a Web site, information about a particular health condition, or materials relating to products or services offered by Takeda and its product-related co-promotion partners, and you may provide us with your e-mail address to receive such communications. 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. If your personal information is not required, we will describe to you at the time we collect the personal information if there are any consequences to you in not providing it.

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 Web sites with personal information we receive from you offline or from other sources.

Automatically Collected Information

Web Server Logs/IP Addresses

Like many other Web sites, we collect information about how our visitors use and navigate our Web sites. This information helps us to design our Web sites to better suit our visitors' needs. For example, we may use your IP address to help diagnose problems with our servers, administer our Web sites, analyze trends, track visitor movements and gather broad demographic information that assists us in identifying visitor preferences.

Cookies and Web beacons

Our Web sites may use passive tracking technologies for site maintenance and development, including the use of "cookies" and "Web beacons" to identify the number of visitors accessing a Web site and the specific areas of a Web site accessed by those visitors. These technologies also provide additional functionality to the Web sites and help us analyze Web site usage more accurately.

Cookies

Cookies are pieces of data that a Web site transfers to a visitor's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies placed on our Web sites may be set directly by our servers or by third parties providing technical services to us. To prevent cookies from tracking you as you navigate our Web sites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. Please note that some portions of our Web sites may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

Web Beacons

Web beacons are transparent pixel images that are used in collecting information about Web site visitor activities and e-mail response and tracking. For example, if we send you an e-mail message, we (or third parties providing services on our behalf) may collect information through Web beacons to determine whether you have opened the e-mail message or clicked on links located within the e-mail message.

Your Choices

You have several choices regarding your use of our Web sites. You could decide not to submit any personal information at all. Although certain Web sites 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) un-subscribing at specific areas of the Web sites 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 Web sites, 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 Web sites may not work properly if you refuse cookies.
