Takeda Oncology Website Privacy Policy

Thank you for visiting Takeda Oncology.com, a website of Millennium Pharmaceuticals Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited (“Takeda”).

This privacy policy (the “Privacy Policy”) describes our privacy practices with respect to personal information collected on this website and websites linked to this Privacy Policy (“Takeda Websites”), other electronic communications technologies that link to this policy, and specific Takeda programs mentioned herein that may collect personal information through other means. The term "personal information" as used throughout this Privacy Policy applies to any information that is used by or on behalf of Takeda to identify an individual such as name, address, telephone number, or e-mail address. This Privacy Policy also describes our privacy practices with respect to information that may identify a particular web browsing device or web browser that you use, even though such information may not identify you personally. We refer to such information in this policy as “persistent identifier information.”

This Privacy Policy is intended for all visitors of Takeda Websites including consumers, healthcare professionals and Takeda business partners.

At some of our Websites, our practices with respect to the collection, use, and disclosure of personal information and/or persistent identifier information may differ from the practices described in this Privacy Policy. In those instances, the different practices will be disclosed to you in the privacy policies of those web pages.

From time to time, our internal processes may change, or we may offer new or altered features at our Websites. 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 Websites with notice of our new Privacy Policy via e-mail.

Collection of Personal Information and Persistent Identifier Information

  • Information You Provide

    In general, you may browse the Takeda Websites without providing any personal information. At our Websites, we may provide you with opportunities 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 may choose to register to receive e-mail updates about a Website, information about a 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.

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

  • Automatically Collected Information – Cookies and Other Website Information

    Like most other commercial websites, we use standard “cookie” and “web beacon” technology and web server logs to collect information about how our Website is used. Web beacons are transparent pixel images that are used in collecting information about Website visitor activities and e-mail open and click-through rates. 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. Such data may include, but is not limited to, your e-mail and IP addresses, the browser and e-mail client you use, the city in which you are located, and details about how you engage with the email, such as whether you opened, read, forwarded, or printed the e-mail. By opting in to Takeda e-mails, you agree to the use of e-mail analytics.

    Cookies are pieces of data that a website transfers to a visitor's hard drive for record-keeping purposes. Cookies placed on our Websites may be set directly by our servers or by third parties providing services to us. We may use these cookies to track your use of our Website and to deliver advertising relevant to you on third party sites that is based on information we have collected about your interests. To prevent cookies from tracking you as you navigate our Websites, you can configure your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being set. Please note that some portions of our Websites may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

    Information gathered through cookies and by our web server logs may include your IP address, your Internet browser (e.g., Chrome), your operating system (e.g., Windows 10), the domain name of your internet service provider (e.g., Comcast), the date and time of your visits, the pages viewed, the time spent at our Website, and the websites visited just before and just after our Website. This information may be associated with your personal information, but it is not considered personal information unless it is associated with an identifiable individual.

    Takeda may use certain analytical services, including but not limited to Google Analytics, a service by Google, Inc. (“Google”), to analyze Non-Personally Identifiable Information to learn about how visitors interact with our Websites (also known as “session tracking”), to help us improve user experience. Google Analytics uses cookies to analyze use patterns and may collect information about your use of the website, including your IP address. You may find more information about Google Analytics and Google’s privacy policy by visiting Google’s web site here: www.google.com/policies/privacy/partners/. In addition, our Websites may use Google Analytics Advertising Features, which collect information through cookies, including Remarketing with Google Analytics, Google Display Network Impression Reporting, and Google Analytics Demographics and Interest reporting. If you would like to opt-out of having your data used by these cookies, please use the Google Analytics opt-out available here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/

    Additionally, Takeda may embed content or applications from third party sources to facilitate an interactive website experience. In the case of any such third party materials, the third party’s privacy policies and terms of condition will apply to those website elements. Takeda makes no representations regarding the collection or use of data submitted to third party applications. Consumers should review the privacy policies of any third party content providers prior to submitting any information via third party content or applications. Third party content or applications that collect Personal Information will be designated as such on the page in which they are embedded.

  • Your Choices

    You have several choices regarding your use of our Websites and electronic communications services. First, you could decide not to submit any personal information. Although certain Websites may ask for permission to use your personal information for certain purposes, you can agree or decline to provide your personal information. Second, 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 Websites 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.

    Third, as described above, if you wish to prevent cookies from tracking you as you navigate our Websites, you can configure your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being set. Please note, however, that some portions of our Websites may not work properly if you refuse cookies.

    Certain web browsers and other programs may be used to signal your preferences to Takeda about how or whether Takeda or third parties may collect information about your online activities. The Digital Advertising Alliance maintains a web site where consumers can opt out from receiving interest-based advertising from some or all of the network advertising companies participating in the program (see www.AboutAds.info/choices).

  • Use of Personal Information and Persistent Identifier Information

    Takeda and its service providers will use your personal information to provide information and services to you, including information and services you have requested, or as otherwise disclosed to you in this Privacy Policy or on the web page where you submit your personal information to us. We may also use that information to provide you with materials about products and services offered by Takeda and its product-related co-promotion partners, including new content or services on our Websites. We may provide you with these materials by phone, mail, facsimile or e-mail.

    We may use persistent identifier information to track your use of our Website and to deliver advertising relevant to you that is based on information we have collected about your interests. This advertising may be delivered both on our Websites and on third party sites.

    We may use aggregate information collected from visitors of our Websites in order to improve our Websites, products, or services. Aggregate information about Website visitors that does not contain personal information may be shared with third parties.

Personal Information of Children

Our Websites are not intended or designed to attract children under the age of 18, and we do not believe that our Websites are appealing to children.
