7. Privacy policy

The term “personal data” as used in this section refers to any information that can be used to identify you, such as your name, birth date, e-mail or mailing address.

Some of the services provided on this website may require registration. When registering with Actelion, you may need to complete certain data fields as well as pick a user name and password. This registration discloses your identity. Please note that in the event you decide to withhold certain requested personal data, it may not be possible for you to access certain parts of the website or for Actelion to respond to your request. Actelion will not process your personal data without your prior consent. Actelion will only process personal data for specific and limited purposes and will inform you about these purposes when asking for your personal data. In processing your personal data, Actelion will fully comply with internationally recognized standards of data protection. In doing so, Actelion ensures compliance of its staff with strict standards of security and confidentiality.

Actelion will not give access to any of your personal data to any third party. However, personal data may incidentally be transferred to a third party acting for or on behalf of Actelion, or in connection with Actelion’s business, for further processing in accordance with the original purpose of the collection of the personal data. Wherever possible, Actelion endeavours to ensure that both the obligation of non-disclosure and the intended use of the personal data are clearly indicated. Such third parties may adopt different privacy policies. However, Actelion aims to ensure that such third parties provide the same degree of protection as Actelion does, and, where appropriate, Actelion will contractually bind a third party to process personal data only for the purpose explicitly authorized by Actelion. Nevertheless, it is expressly understood that Actelion will not share any personal data that is sensitive (e.g. medical history) with any third party without your prior and explicit consent, and you may always withdraw your consent at any later time. Please note that if you withdraw your consent, Actelion may not be able to comply with some of your requests. However, Actelion will, where practicable, inform third parties to whom your personal data has been transferred of your withdrawal of consent.

Actelion attempts to ensure that your personal data are updated, accurate and complete according to the information that has been provided. You are entitled to access and update your personal data or to demand their deletion at any time. If you wish to access, amend or delete your personal data held by Actelion, please contact our Webmaster. Actelion will address your request in a prompt and accurate manner and free of charge. However, requests to delete personal data will be subject to any applicable legal and ethical reporting or document filing or retention obligations with which Actelion must comply. In all other cases, Actelion will keep personal data only as long as is reasonably required for the processing of the purpose for which the personal data were collected and in accordance with any applicable legal or ethical reporting or documentation retention requirements.

This Privacy Policy applies solely and exclusively to this website.
