If we intend on using any of your Personal Information in any manner that is not consistent with this Privacy Policy, you will be informed of such anticipated use and you will have the opportunity to opt out. You may choose not to submit your Personal Information at any time, but that decision may prevent you from accessing and/or using certain of the Services. You have the right to correct or modify your Personal Information by providing notice to us. We may block users located in certain countries from using the Websites. We may retain and use your Personal Information and Other Information for as long as is required to fulfil our business objectives.


We may analyse your Personal Information in aggregate form which does not identify you personally. We may share this aggregate data with our parent, affiliates, agents, advertisers, manufacturers and business partners. We may also disclose aggregated user statistics in order to describe our services to current and prospective business partners and to other third parties for other lawful purposes.

Sharing Your Information. There are certain circumstances where we may share your Personal Information and/or Other Information with third parties without notice to you, including:

  • Agents, Consultants and Related Third Parties. We, like many businesses, sometimes hire other companies to perform certain business-related functions. When we employ another company or third party to perform a function of this nature, we only provide them with the information that they need to perform their specific function. We may also share your information with our parent company, affiliates, or other companies under common control with us.
  • Legal Requirements. We may disclose your information if required to do so by law or in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to (a) comply with a legal obligation, (b) protect and defend our rights or property, (c) protect the personal safety of users of the Websites or the public, or (d) protect against legal liability.
  • Business Transfers. As we develop our business, we might share your information with Providers, business partners or third parties. We may also sell or buy businesses or assets. In the event of a corporate sale, merger, reorganization, dissolution or similar event, Personal Information may be part of the transferred assets. If we transfer our business or assets to another entity, we will require it to honor the terms of this Privacy Policy, if applicable. We will not otherwise sell your Personal Information to third parties without first providing you with notice and choice to opt out.

Web Beacons and JavaScript Tags. LEO Pharma and its Providers use certain technologies, including the following: 

  • JavaScript tags trigger a sequence of events that includes viewing a first-party cookie (or setting that cookie if it does not already exist). We may use JavaScript tags to help us tailor and optimize our Websites and provide you relevant LEO Pharma advertisements outside of our Websites.
  • Web beacons, also known as “clear gif” technology, are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies, and are used to track the online movements of web site users. Unlike cookies, which can be stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs are embedded invisibly on web pages and are about the size of the period at the end of this sentence. We may use web beacons to help us manage information on the Websites by tracking what information is effective.


The Websites may contain links to third party websites. LEO Pharma has no control over the privacy practices or the content of those websites. As such, we are not responsible for the content or the privacy policies of those third party websites. You should check the applicable third party privacy policy and terms of use when visiting any other websites, and before providing any Personal Information to other websites. 


We take commercially reasonable steps to protect your Personal Information and Other Information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. Secured socket layer (“SSL”) technology is used for processing payment transactions with Providers. Please understand, however, that no security system is impenetrable. We cannot guarantee the security of our databases, nor can we guarantee that the information that you supply will not be intercepted while being transmitted to and from us over the Internet. In particular, e-mail sent to or from the Websites may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Therefore, you acknowledge and agree that we assume no liability regarding the theft, loss, alteration or misuse of personal or other information or content, including, without limitation, such information that has been provided to third parties or other users, or with regards to the failure of a third party to abide by the agreement between us and such third party.


If you register on the Websites, we may send you certain notifications, advertisements, promotions, and other information. We may also send you any legally required notifications and certain notifications, including but not limited to, service related notices or notices regarding a change to any of our policies. For example, we may send you a notice regarding server problems or scheduled maintenance to the Websites. In order to opt-out of receiving these notices, you may need to deactivate your account. 

You can opt-out of receiving certain communications from LEO Pharma, its successors, affiliated companies and/or its agents, including emails, mail, SMS, and phone calls relating to our products, Services, and programs, and/or disease awareness information. We may provide various ways to opt-out, which may include opt-out boxes on materials sent by regular mail, and unsubscribe functions in emails. We will not change your preferences without your consent. You cannot, however, opt-out of receiving transactional communications from LEO related to your account.


This Privacy Policy is effective as of the date stated at the top of this Privacy Policy. We may change this Privacy Policy from time to time. Please be aware that, to the extent permitted by applicable law, our use of the Personal Information and Other Information is governed by the Privacy Policy in effect at the time we collect the information. If you visit the Websites or use the Services after a change to this Privacy Policy is posted on the Websites, you will be bound by such change. Please refer back to this Privacy Policy on a regular basis.

If you have any questions regarding this Privacy Policy, please contact us by e mail via the 'Questions' section shown below at the end of this section. We will investigate your question, respond to your inquiry, and attempt to resolve any concerns regarding your privacy question.


You may request us or any third party instructed by us to:

  • Provide you with information on the Personal Data that are being processed about you; the purposes of the processing; the categories of recipients of the data; and any available information as to the source of such data.
  • Correct, erase or block Personal Data we or any third party instructed by us hold about you if these turn out to be inaccurate or misleading.
  • If you have requested to receive information from us, e.g. newsletters, etc., and do not wish to receive further information; you can easily opt out of receiving further information from us by sending an email to the address set out at the end of this Privacy Policy or by using the opt-out at the end of each e-mail.
