App Privacy Statement

App Privacy Statement

This App Privacy Statement explains how Gilead Sciences, Inc., including its wholly owned subsidiaries and successors (together referred to as "Gilead"), handles the information that you provide to Gilead, or that is otherwise collected, on apps controlled by Gilead (together referred to as "Gilead App(s)"). The privacy practices of Gilead Apps generally conform to the Gilead Privacy Statement. Please read this App Privacy Statement and the Gilead Privacy Statement before using Gilead Apps or submitting information to Gilead. Collection and processing of personally identifiable information, however, may vary with the unique features of each site. Therefore, where applicable, you are encouraged to review the terms of the individual privacy statement that is tailored to the specific Gilead App you are visiting. By accessing and using the Gilead App(s), you agree and consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information (information that can identify you) as outlined in this App Privacy Statement.

Unless otherwise specifically noted, this App Privacy Statement does not apply to information collected from you offline, or to third-party apps to which Gilead Apps may link. You are encouraged to review the terms of the individual privacy policies of each app you visit.

How does Gilead collect information online?

Gilead collects information in two ways: 

Personal Information You Submit:

Gilead collects Personal Information that you enter into data fields on Gilead Apps. For example, you may submit your name, postal address, email address, telephone number, or other information in order to receive information about various subjects, register for Gilead programs, contact Gilead customer service, or respond to Gilead surveys. In addition, Gilead may consolidate information in a non-identifiable form (aggregate/anonymise data) to help Gilead better design Gilead products and services, to enhance Gilead's research activities, and to facilitate other business functions. To protect your privacy, you should not provide Gilead with any information that is not specifically requested.

Passive Collection of Unidentifiable Information:

Gilead Apps may collect information about your visits to Gilead Apps without you actively submitting such information. Unidentified information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your computer's hard disk by an app. Web beacons (also referred to as GIF files, pixels, or Internet tags) help Gilead understand how you navigate around the Gilead Apps. As part of your use of the site, your Internet browser automatically transmits to Gilead Apps some of this unidentified information, such as the URL of the app you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of Gilead Apps easier by allowing Gilead to provide better service, customise Gilead Apps based on consumer preferences, compile statistics, analyse trends, and otherwise administer and improve Gilead Apps. Certain features of Gilead Apps may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identify you without additional information. With respect to limiting or disabling tracking technology please see section below entitled, "What choices do I have about how Gilead Apps collect and use Personal Information about me?"

Some of Gilead's business partners with whom Gilead contracts to carry out business activities (e.g., app providers) may use their cookies on Gilead Apps. Although Gilead may not have direct access to or control over such cookies, this App Privacy Statement governs the use of cookies by Gilead and such business partners on Gilead Apps. Gilead may also allow social media companies (e.g., Facebook) to put “widgets” on Gilead Apps. These third-party tools may also be used to track you across apps. For example, so long as you are logged in to Facebook, every time you land on a webpage that has a Facebook widget, Facebook will know you are on that webpage. Gilead does not control the privacy practices of these third parties.

In what circumstances and for what purposes might Gilead collect and use Personal Information through Gilead Apps?

As noted above, Gilead will collect information about how you interact with the Gilead Apps. Usually this information is unidentified and is limited to maintaining the integrity of, or making improvements, to the Gilead App. Where Personal Information is submitted by you, Gilead will only use this Personal Information to respond to your questions and to provide you with efficient customer service, except as otherwise permitted or required by law. After you have entered Personal Information into a form or data field on a Gilead App, Gilead may use the automated technologies noted above to allow that Gilead App to “remember” your personal preferences, such as sections of that Gilead App that you visit frequently and, if you choose, your user ID by combining the previously unidentified information with your Personal Information. Consent will be obtained for such use in countries or regions where it is required.

Gilead will only use Personal Information to respond to your requests and for other permitted Gilead business purposes, which may include offering you the opportunity to receive notices of information regarding Gilead’s products or services, inviting you to participate in surveys about Gilead’s products or services, or notifying you about special events that may be of interest to you. Gilead may send you service-related announcements on rare occasions when it is necessary to do so. For instance, if a Gilead service is temporarily suspended for maintenance, Gilead might send you an e-mail notification. Generally, you may not opt-out of these non-promotional communications, but you have the option to deactivate your account.

If you choose to use Gilead’s email page feature to receive email alerts, Gilead will send you an e-mail to validate your registration and confirm that you are signing up to receive such emails. If you wish to no longer receive such emails, you may follow the instructions provided in the email in order to request that Gilead stop sending you email alerts. 

As allowed by applicable local laws, some Gilead Apps include the opportunity to send another individual a link to a Gilead webpage. If you choose to use Gilead’s e-mail page feature to send a link to a Gilead page, Gilead will ask you for the recipient’s email address. Gilead will automatically send the recipient a one-time email inviting him or her to read the featured page. This information is used only for the delivery of this specific email message, and is not stored or used for any other purpose. 

Gilead may share, subject to applicable laws and regulations, Personal Information with Agents who assist Gilead with its business activities related to the purposes for which the information was provided. Such Agents may include, but are not limited to, service providers that administer Gilead’s email subscriptions and requests for information, or provide services. Gilead requires such Agents to keep Personal Information confidential and to use or disclose Personal Information only to perform functions for Gilead and in accordance with Gilead’s instructions and this App Privacy Statement. Some of these Agents may be based outside of the country in which the Personal Information was collected. To the extent that any Personal Information is sent across national borders, it will be subject to the laws of the country in which it is held, and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of the destination country, pursuant to the laws of such country.

When does Gilead disclose Personal Information, and why?

Gilead may disclose Personal Information, without obtaining the individual’s consent, in order to respond to authorised information requests from government authorities; or when otherwise required or permitted by law and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.

 Gilead may also use or disclose Personal Information, in accordance with applicable law: (i) in connection with a contemplated or actual reorganisation of its business; (ii) when seeking financing or in connection with an assignment, sale, or other transaction involving the disposal of all or part of its business or assets, including for the purpose of permitting the parties to conduct due diligence so as to determine whether a transaction should proceed; and (iii) on completion of the transaction. In any assignment or sale, the assignee or purchaser may use and disclose Personal Information collected by Gilead for substantially the same purposes as described in this App Privacy Statement. 

Gilead will not disclose your Personal Information with third parties except as otherwise stated in this App Privacy Statement.

What choices do I have about how Gilead Apps collect and use Personal Information about me?

You may always limit the amount and type of Personal Information that Gilead receives about you by choosing not to enter Personal Information into forms or data fields on Gilead Apps. Some of Gilead's online services can only be provided to you if you provide Gilead with appropriate Personal Information. Various Gilead Apps may ask whether you wish to opt-in to Gilead's contact lists or programmes for offers, promotions, and additional services that may be of interest to you.

You may also be provided with preference questions or preference boxes allowing you to indicate that you do not want Gilead Apps to use tracking technologies, such as cookies, to "remember" your Personal Information, such as user IDs or mailing addresses, on return visits. However, Gilead Apps that use tracking technologies to collect unidentified information do not generally provide you with the ability to opt-out of the tracking technologies. Some Internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentified information, such as a “Do Not Track” (“DNT”) setting. Currently, the Gilead Apps are not compatible with the DNT standard in its current release. However, you should remember that Gilead does not collect or disclose your browsing behaviour for third-party marketing purposes.

How does Gilead secure Personal Information collected on Gilead Apps?

It is Gilead’s practice to secure each Gilead App using commercially reasonable technical, procedural, and administrative safeguards proportional to the sensitivity and volume of data processed. However, the confidentiality of Personal Information transmitted over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. Gilead urges you to exercise caution when transmitting Personal Information over the Internet. Gilead cannot absolutely guarantee that unauthorised third parties will not gain access to your Personal Information; therefore, when submitting Personal Information to Gilead Apps, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks. Gilead has no control over third-party apps or their content and Gilead’s App Privacy Statement does not apply to such apps. You should check the privacy policies of third-party apps before submitting Personal Information. This also applies to those business partners or social media services that have sharing tools on the Gilead Apps (e.g. Facebook). As Gilead does not control the privacy practices of these third parties, you should review the privacy settings you have set up directly with them.

How does Gilead protect the privacy of children on Gilead Apps?

Gilead does not knowingly collect or use any Personal Information from children on Gilead Apps (“children” are individuals who have not reached the age of majority in their residential jurisdictions). Gilead does not knowingly allow children to order Gilead’s products, communicate with Gilead, or use any of Gilead’s online services. Should you suspect that a child of whom you are the parent or legal guardian has provided us with Personal Information, please contact Gilead using one of the methods specified below and Gilead will work with you to address this issue.

Access, Correction, and Contact Information

With your support, Gilead will keep Personal Information accurate and up-to-date. You may request to remove, amend, or correct your Personal Information at any time, subject to certain exceptions allowed by law. You may also contact Gilead to opt-out from any programme or other service for which you have registered via Gilead Apps. Please notify Gilead of your wishes by contacting Gilead by telephone at +44 (0)208 587 2349 or by email at privacy@gilead.com. Alternatively, letters may be sent to the following address:

Uxbridge
Middlesex
United Kingdom
UB11 1AF

All communications to Gilead should include the individual's name and contact information (such as email address, phone number or mailing address), and a detailed explanation of the request. In addition, communications related to Gilead Apps should include, as applicable, the email address used for registration and the Gilead App address on which Personal Information was provided (e.g., www.gilead.com.). Email requests to delete, amend or correct Personal Information should include "Deletion Request" or "Amendment/Correction Request", as applicable, in the subject line of the email. Gilead will endeavour to respond to all reasonable requests in a timely manner, and in any case, within any time limits prescribed by applicable Local Law.

Gilead Privacy Statement

In the regular course of business, Gilead interacts and communicates directly with healthcare professionals, customers, clinical trial participants, consumers, business partners, regulatory authorities, and others. Through these interactions and communications, Personal Information may be provided to Gilead and processed electronically and/or manually. Gilead respects individual privacy and values the confidence of such individuals. This Privacy Statement sets forth Gilead's privacy principles with respect to Personal Information, including the implementation of privacy procedures and technical security measures to keep Personal Information private and secure, which Gilead follows in its normal course of business. Gilead will collect, use and disclose Personal Information in accordance with applicable privacy or data protection laws and this Privacy Statement.

Scope

This Privacy Statement applies to all Personal Information received by Gilead (including Personal Information received by third-party organisations or individuals acting as Agents of Gilead) as part of Gilead's business operations, in any format, including electronic or paper. This Privacy Statement does not apply to Personal Information received by Gilead (including Personal Information received by third-party organisations or individuals acting as Agents of Gilead), as part of Gilead’s management of its employees, contractors, or other individuals who perform work for, or on behalf of Gilead. This Privacy Statement does not apply to Personal Information collected by Gilead Apps as the Gilead App Privacy Statement would then be applicable. 

Definitions

For the purposes of this Privacy Statement, the following definitions shall apply:

"Agent" means any third party that collects and/or uses Personal Information under the instructions of, and solely for, Gilead or to which Gilead discloses Personal Information for use on Gilead's behalf.

"Gilead" means Gilead Sciences Europe Ltd.

"Gilead App(s)" means apps controlled by Gilead.

"Personal Information" means any information or set of information that identifies or is used by or on behalf of Gilead to identify an individual. Examples of Personal Information include an individual’s name, postal address, email address, and telephone number. Personal Information does not include any information that is anonymised, or non-personal information that has not been combined with Personal Information to allow identification of an individual.

"Sensitive Personal Information" is a Gilead defined subset of Personal Information (similar to the UK defined Sensitive Personal Data, with additional attributes). Sensitive Personal Information includes information such as government unique identifier or financial information, race, ethnic origin, political options, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or information that concerns health, sexual orientation or criminal allegations (convictions or otherwise).

 Gilead Privacy Principles

NOTICE: The collection, use, and/or disclosure of Personal Information in the business context are essential to the conduct of many of Gilead's business functions. Gilead may collect Personal Information from individuals directly and/or from third parties, where Gilead has obtained the individuals’ consent to do so or as otherwise required or permitted by law. 

Where Gilead collects Personal Information directly from individuals, Gilead will inform them about the purposes for which it collects and uses their Personal Information, the types of third parties with which Gilead shares Personal Information, and the choices and means, if any, Gilead offers individuals for limiting the use or disclosure of their Personal Information. Notice will be provided in clear and conspicuous language when individuals are first asked to provide Personal Information to Gilead, or as soon as practicable thereafter, and in any event before Gilead uses or discloses the information for a purpose other than that for which it was originally collected. Where prescribed by applicable local laws, consent will be obtained for such disclosures. In these circumstances, the form of consent that Gilead seeks, including whether it is express or implied, will largely depend on the sensitivity of the Personal Information and the reasonable expectations the individual might have in the circumstances. 

For example, without limitation, Gilead may collect Personal Information for the purposes of disease management, education, decision support systems, requests for product information, clinical trials, registration for Gilead programmes, customer service support, marketing or Gilead surveys. Individuals should not provide Gilead with any Personal Information that is not specifically requested. Where Gilead receives Personal Information from its subsidiaries, affiliates, or other entities, it will use or disclose such Personal Information in accordance with the notices provided at the time the Personal Information was collected, the limitations on such use or disclosure authorised or consented to by the individuals to whom such Personal Information relates, or as instructed, by such individual at a later date.

Gilead may consolidate the Personal Information of individuals who provide such Personal Information to Gilead consistent with the purposes for which the Personal Information was collated. In addition, Gilead may consolidate information in a non-identifiable form (aggregate/anonymise data) to help Gilead better design Gilead products and services, to enhance Gilead’s research activities, and to facilitate other business functions. 

CHOICE: As appropriate, Gilead will offer individuals the opportunity to choose whether their Personal information is (a) to be disclosed to a non-Agent third party, or (b) to be used for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected and/or consented to by the individual, except as otherwise provided by law. Gilead may be prevented from providing certain services to individuals who do not choose to allow the use or disclosure of their Personal Information. Gilead will provide more specific notice of the choice mechanisms, and the consequences for exercising such choice, at the time that Gilead collects Personal Information.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, Gilead may share, subject to applicable laws and regulations, Personal Information with Agents who assist Gilead with its business activities related to the purposes for which the information was provided. Such Agents may include, but are not limited to, service providers that administer Gilead’s email subscriptions and requests for information, or provide services. Gilead requires such Agents to keep Personal Information confidential and to use or disclose Personal Information only to perform functions for Gilead and in accordance with Gilead’s instructions and this Privacy Statement.

For Sensitive Personal Information, Gilead will give individuals the opportunity to affirmatively and explicitly authorise or consent to the disclosure of their Sensitive Personal Information to a non-Agent third party or the use of their Sensitive Personal Information for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or authorised by the individual.

Gilead may disclose Personal Information, without obtaining the individual’s consent, in order to respond to authorised information requests from government authorities; or when otherwise required or permitted by law and/or to comply with a judicial proceeding, court order, or legal process.

Gilead may also use or disclose Personal Information, in accordance with applicable law; (i) in connection with a contemplated or actual reorganisation of its business; (ii) when seeking financing or in connection with an assignment, sale, or other transaction involving the disposal of all or part of its business or assets, including for the purpose of permitting the parties to conduct due diligence so as to determine whether a transaction should proceed; and (iii) in association with the transaction. In any assignment or sale, the assignee or purchaser may use and disclose Personal Information collected by Gilead for substantially the same purposes as described in this Privacy Statement. Such transfer may be subject to individuals’ consent when required by applicable law.

Gilead will not disclose your Personal Information to third parties except as otherwise stated in this Privacy Statement.

 DATA INTEGRITY: Gilead will use Personal Information only in ways that are compatible with the purposes for which it was collected, or consented to by the individual. Gilead will have appropriate steps in place to ensure that Personal Information is relevant to its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. Gilead will only store Personal Information for as long as it is needed to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, subject to applicable data retention periods imposed upon Gilead by applicable law.

TRANSFERS TO AGENTS: Gilead will obtain assurances from its Agents that they will safeguard Personal Information consistent with this statement. An example of appropriate assurances that may be provided by Agents include a contractual obligation that the Agents provide at least the same level of protection as is required by Gilead's privacy principles. Where Gilead has knowledge that an Agent is using or disclosing Personal Information in a manner contrary to this Privacy Statement, Gilead will take appropriate steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.

In addition, Gilead may send Personal Information outside of the country for the purposes set out above, including for process and storage by Agents in connection with such purposes.  However, to the extent that any Personal Information is sent out of the country, it is subject to the laws of the country in which it is held, and may be subject to disclosure to the governments, courts or law enforcement or regulatory agencies of such other country, pursuant to the laws of such country. 

ACCESS AND CORRECTION: Access to Personal Information is limited to a restricted number of Gilead employees whose duties reasonably require such information, Agents with whom Gilead contracts to carry out business activities for Gilead, and, with an individual's consent, certain companies with which Gilead may conduct joint programmes. Gilead trains its employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage Personal Information appropriately and securely. Personal Information handled by Gilead Agents, or companies with which Gilead may conduct joint programs, is governed by this Privacy Statement.

Upon written request, Gilead will grant individuals’ access to Personal Information that it holds about them, subject to any legal restrictions. In addition, Gilead will permit individuals to correct, amend, or delete information that is demonstrated to be inaccurate or incomplete, subject to certain exceptions provided by law. In some instances, applicable law or regulatory requirements allow or require Gilead to refuse to provide some or all of an individual's Personal Information. In addition, Personal Information may have been destroyed, erased or made anonymous in accordance with Gilead's record retention obligations and practices. In the event that Gilead cannot provide an individual with access to his/her Personal Information, Gilead will endeavour to provide the individual with an explanation, subject to any legal or regulatory restrictions. 

Individuals may, at any time revoke their consent to collect, use or disclose their Personal Information. All requests to revoke consent should be progressed with Gilead as directed below under ENFORCEMENT.

SECURITY: Gilead uses physical, technical, and managerial safeguards to keep your Personal Information protected from unauthorised access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. Such measures may include, but are not limited to the encryption of communications via SSL, encryption of information while it is in storage, firewalls, access controls, separation of duties, and similar security protocols. However, Gilead cannot absolutely guarantee the security of your Personal Information.

ENFORCEMENT: Gilead will conduct periodic compliance audits of its relevant privacy practices to verify adherence to this Privacy Statement. 

Independent Recourse Mechanism

Gilead will investigate and attempt to resolve any complaints and disputes regarding collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information in accordance with the principles contained in this Privacy Statement. Complaints or disputes that cannot be resolved between Gilead and the complainant will be handled through the TRUSTe dispute resolution process.

Gilead has engaged TRUSTe as an independent recourse mechanism, in alignment with the US-EU Safe Harbor Framework. TRUSTe is an independent organisation, whose mission is to build user trust and confidence by promoting the use of fair information practices. In the event that Gilead is unable to resolve a complaint or dispute to the satisfaction of the complainant, an appeal may be made to TRUSTe online at https://feedback-form.truste.com/watchdog/request, by mail at the following address:

Watchdog Complaints
TRUSTe
835 Market St., Suite 800
San Francisco, CA 94103

Or by fax at (415) 520 3420. Such fax or mailing to TRUSTe to lodge a complaint must include the following information: (i) the name of the company; (ii) the alleged privacy violation; (iii) contact information of the complainant; and (iv) whether the complainant would like the particulars of the complaint shared with Gilead.

Limitation on Application of Principles

Adherence by Gilead to these principles may be limited (a) to the extent required to respond to a legal or ethical obligation, and (b) to the extent expressly required by an applicable law, regulation, or rule.
