This website is provided by AstraZeneca. We take very seriously the privacy of our website users and the security of their personal information.
DESCRIPTION OF THE INFORMATION WE COLLECT
1 Aggregate Information
2 Personal Information
Occasionally we may obtain sensitive personal information about you, for example, information relating to your physical or mental health or condition, but only if you voluntarily provide us with this information. We may also obtain information about your opinions if, for example, you send us feedback, or ask us questions.
We may also, occasionally, receive information about you from other sources (such as third parties or other companies within the Group) which we will add to the information which we already hold about you in order to help us improve and personalise our service to you.
HOW WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
OPTING OUT OF FURTHER COMMUNICATIONS FROM US
If we have specified (in a data collection notice on this website) that we will contact you with information about our products or services or those of other AstraZeneca companies and you wish to opt out of receiving such information, then you can do so by sending an e-mail to email@example.com. You should clearly state on all communications: your name, username (if any), registration details (if any) and the name of this website.
HOW WE PROTECT YOUR INFORMATION
In general terms, cookies are small text files which are sent to your web browser and stored on your computer's hard disk. Cookies act as a memory for a website, allowing that website to remember your computer on your return visits. This is particularly important for websites that require you to sign in as it speeds up your access. We use both session cookies (which exist only until you close your web browser) and persistent cookies (which exist for a longer, specified period of time).
Some of our advertising banners may send a cookie to your hard disk (whether or not you click the banner). If you subsequently visit the advertised website we will know that you have seen our banner. This allows us to keep track of the success rates of such banners.
The majority of web browsers accept cookies, but you can usually change the web browser’s settings to refuse new cookies, disable existing ones or simply let you know when new ones are sent to your hard disk. However, please be aware that, if you refuse or disable cookies, some of the website’s functionality may be lost. To learn more about how to refuse or disable cookies please visit “aboutcookies.org”.
AGENTS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS
We sometimes employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. They may need access to your personal information in order to perform their functions. However, rest assured, they may not use your personal information for any other purpose.
Our website is directed at an adult audience (such as healthcare professionals, investors and individuals seeking information about AstraZeneca and healthcare products). We do not knowingly collect information from or about children.
We may use the information we gather and/or receive about you to investigate and help prevent unlawful activity or activity that threatens our network or otherwise jeopardises the provision of this website and we may disclose such information to third parties (such as the police) for these purposes.
ACCESS AND CORRECTIONS
If we process personal information about you, then you have a right under European data protection law to request access to that personal information (for which we may charge a small fee).
You also have a right to require any inaccuracies in your information to be corrected free of charge. You can ask us to modify your details by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please state your name, username (if any), registration details (if any) and the name of this website clearly on all communications.
