Where required by applicable law, we will obtain your consent to our use of your personal information at the point of information collection.  We may also use information from or about you as necessary to perform a contract, to comply with a legal obligation (for example, to comply with our pharmacovigilance obligations), or for our legitimate business interests.  We may also rely on other legal bases, specifically for:

For example, if you sign up for email communications, provide your phone number for phone communication, or where you may be providing special categories of personal data (or “sensitive data”). Please note that we may have a different legal basis for processing (e.g., legitimate interest) so that consent is not needed. When our use and sharing is not readily apparent when you provide your information, we will provide additional information at the time we collect the information regarding our purposes and use of the information.

In addition, where allowed by applicable law, We may use and disclose information that is not in personally identifiable form for any purpose.  If We combine information that is not in personally identifiable form with information that is identifiable (such as combining your name with your geographical location), We will treat the combined information as personal information as long as it is combined.

Retention of Your Information
