We invite Users to carefully read the Policy, which sets out the manner in which Santen will process PI and qualifies the User’s individual rights and Santen’s obligations while engaging in the collection, use, storage, or disclosure of PI. By using the Santen website and Santen’s online services, including accessing content on the Santen website and submitting information to Santen’s online services, you are consenting to Santen’s practices and Santen’s use of your PI as described in this Policy.
Please note that Santen may at any time, and without notice, change, modify, add, remove or otherwise update the Policy by posting an amended Policy on the Santen website.
The Policy details the specific PI Santen collects, stores, uses and discloses, and the purposes for such collection, storage, use and disclosure of PI. The Policy will also detail the manner in which PI is utilized during the production of website-usage reports and which parties have access to User PI gathered by Santen. The Policy will delineate how PI is secured. Finally, the Policy will enumerate the User Rights to PI and how Users may exercise these rights.
This technology measures the effectiveness of Santen’s advertising campaigns as well as to evaluate User use of our website.
Via the tags and/or Cookies, a third-party or web analytical service partner may collect visitor data. The collection and use of this data would be solely for the purpose of generating website activity reports for Santen.
Our third-party partners are entitled to disclose collected User information only where there is a legal obligation to do so, or if they hire subcontractors to process information on their behalf. If you would like more information about internet tags and Cookies associated with online advertising, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative (www.networkadvertising.org).
You may prevent the installation and storage of Cookies by downloading and installing the free Opt-out Browser Add-on available at: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
If you do not accept Cookies, you may not be able to fully experience the functionality of the Santen website. Google may transfer this information if legally obligated or if a third party processes the information on Google's behalf. By using our website, you consent to the processing of any PI that Google collects about you in the manner and for the purposes described above.
PI may also be transferred to third parties whom we have contracted to act for or on our behalf, for further processing in accordance with the purpose(s) for which the data were originally collected or may otherwise be lawfully processed. These purposes include services delivery, evaluating the usefulness of this website, marketing, data management, and/or technical support.Third parties are contractually obligated to use PI solely for the agreed-upon purpose, and are prohibited from selling or disclosing PI, except as may be required by law, or as stated in this Policy.
PI collected from you may be transferred to a third party in the event that the business (in part or in whole) and User data is sold, assigned, or transferred, in which case Santen would require the buyer, assignee, or transferee to treat PI in accordance with the terms of this Policy.
PI may be disclosed to a third party if Santen is required to do so because of an applicable law, court order, or governmental regulation, or if such disclosure is otherwise necessary in support of any criminal or other legal investigation or proceeding in Canada or abroad.
In addition, Santen may disclose to a third party anonymized and/or aggregated information which does not allow you to be personally identified to third parties.
The PI we collect from you may also be processed, transferred, accessed, or stored in countries outside of Canada. Such countries may have different standards for securing and storing PI. Any such transfer will be conducted in compliance with applicable laws and regulations, and PI may be subject to the local laws of the jurisdictions within which it is transferred. Such local laws may require that your PI to be disclosed to government agencies and/or law enforcement agencies under different circumstances than would Canada. By using the Santen website and Santen’s online services, you consent to such transfer of your PI to countries outside of Canada.
To protect the security and confidentiality of PI collected online by Santen, we use data networks protected by industry-standard firewall and password protection systems. When handling your PI, we take measures reasonably designed to protect from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, destruction, and other unlawful forms of processing.
No internet transmission is, however, 100% secure or error-free. It is, your personal responsibility to ensure that the computer you are using is adequately secured and protected against malicious software, such as trojans, computer viruses, and worm programs. You are aware of the fact that without adequate security measures (e.g. secure web browser configuration, up-to-date antivirus software, personal firewall software, no usage of software from dubious sources) there is a risk that the data and passwords you use to protect access to your data, could be disclosed to unauthorized third parties.
Retention of Personal Information.
Any Personal Information collected by Santen shall only be retained as long as necessary for the purposes for which it was collected or for which consent was received, unless otherwise required by law. Also, Santen will retain your information for any new purposes identified by us and consented to by you, for any appropriate time thereafter. The length of time we will store PI will differ, depending on the purpose for which we have collected and are processing the data. Personal Information that is no longer required to fulfil the identified purposes will be destroyed, erased or made anonymous. However, we may maintain data for a longer period if legally required to do so.
Subject to certain legal exemptions, you have the right to request and review any of your Personal Information we may currently have about you. You may update your Personal Information that you have provided to us for accuracy. We will take reasonable steps to make sure that any updates that you provide us are processed in a timely and complete manner.
