It's important to note that the security of information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed.

3. Provision of personal data to a third party
Takeda will not provide personal data to a third party without obtaining the prior consent of the principal, except in case of providing it to a third party pursuant to laws or regulations or as outlined in this policy.
4. Control of personal data
- (1) Takeda will maintain personal data accurately and securely within the scope necessary for the achievement of purposes of utilisation.
- (2) Takeda will take reasonable measures for information security against unauthorised access in order to prevent the loss, destruction, falsification and leakage of personal data. Despite this we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur;
5. Disclosure of retained personal data, etc.
When any person who is the subject of Takeda's retained personal data requests Takeda to disclose, correct, add, delete, discontinue using or erase such data, Takeda will appropriately respond to such request in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. However, there may be exceptions to this rule where personal data must be kept for example, collection of data relating to possible drug side effects (Adverse Events) or criminal investigations
6. Internal system for control and protection of personal information
- (1) Takeda will appropriately establish and maintain internal systems for control and protection of personal information. This is the responsibility of our Data Protection Officer.
- (2) Takeda will educate and exercise necessary and appropriate supervision over its employees concerning appropriate control and protection of personal information.
7. Utilisation of Personal data submitted via this website
Please note that by submitting personally identifiable information, you are consenting to such information being stored and processed for the purposes listed below:
- a) General
We may use the information to verify your healthcare professional status, to improve our level of service, to improve the content of our website, to respond to your requests and for our own internal purposes such as responding to Medical Information Requests or handling of data relating to Adverse Events.
- b) Recruitment – job applicants, current and future Takeda employees
When individuals apply to work at Takeda, we will only use the information they supply to us via the website to process their application. Prior to employment, where we want to disclose information to a third party, for example where we want to take up a reference or obtain a 'disclosure' from the Criminal Records Bureau we will not do so without informing them beforehand unless the disclosure is required by law.
As a rule we do not solicit speculative applications (i.e. those not applying for an advertised role). If these are received, personal information about speculative candidates will not be retained. An automated reply will be received by the sender and their details will not be kept.
Personal information about unsuccessful candidates will be held for a minimum of six months and up to a maximum of 12 months after an appointment has been made, it will then be destroyed/deleted.
Applicants should be aware that their details may be shared with other group companies, if it is thought that there may be suitable roles.
Once a person has taken up employment with Takeda, we will compile a file relating to their employment. The information contained in this will be kept secure and will only be used for purposes directly relevant to that person's employment. Once their employment with Takeda has ended, we will retain the file in accordance with the requirements of our retention schedule and then confidentially destroy it.
- c) Other important Information
Takeda makes use of Google Analytics which is a web analytics tool that helps website owners understand how visitors engage with their website. Google Analytics customers can view a variety of reports about how visitors interact with their website so they can improve it. Google Analytics collects information anonymously. It reports website trends without identifying individual visitors.
Google Analytics Cookies
Like many services, Google Analytics uses first-party cookies to track visitor interactions. These cookies are used to store information, such as what time the current visit occurred, whether the visitor has been to the site before, and what site referred the visitor to the web page. Browsers do not share first-party cookies across domains.
Use of IP Address
Every computer and device connected to the Internet is assigned a unique number known as an Internet protocol (IP) address. Since these numbers are usually assigned in country-based blocks, an IP address can often be used to identify the country, state, and city from which a computer is connecting to the Internet. Google Analytics collects the IP address of website visitors in order to provide website owners a sense of where in the world their visitors come from. This method is known as IP geolocation.
Google Analytics does not report the actual IP address information to Google Analytics customers. Additionally, using a method known as IP masking, website owners that use Google Analytics have the option to tell Google Analytics to only use a portion of the IP address, rather than the entire IP address, for geolocation. Whether or not website owners use Google Analytics, they have access to IP addresses for visitors to their sites.
Personal information is information that personally identifies you, such as your name, email address or billing information, or other data which can be reasonably linked to such information. The Google Analytics Terms of Service, which all Analytics customers must adhere to, prohibits the tracking or collection of this information using Google Analytics or associating personal information with web analytics information.
Google's Use of Analytics Data
Website owners that use Google Analytics have control over what data they allow Google to use. They can decide if they want Google to use this data or not by using the Google Analytics Data Sharing Options. When these options allow, the data is used to improve Google products and services. Website owners can change these options at anytime.

Cookies – Healthcare Professional Section
Cookies are small files that are stored on a user's computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.
To enable healthcare professionals to move freely around the dedicated 'Healthcare Professional' section a cookie is downloaded onto the browser's computer, however, this cookie is removed as soon as the session is closed.
If you would prefer to 'opt-out', simply click on 'cancel' when you are asked to confirm if you are a healthcare professional. By following this process will ensure no cookies are downloaded onto your computer – by 'opting out' you will be unable to view the healthcare professional section of the website.
Please note that this policy may be revised at any time so users are encouraged to visit this page every time they visit the site.
