“Third-party organisations” does not include any companies within Envision Pharma Group. However, we are an international business and any Personal Information provided to us may be shared with and used by an entity within Envision Pharma Group (including those outside of the United Kingdom and European Economic Area (“EEA”).
Where necessary, or for the reasons set out in this notice, Personal Information may also be shared with regulatory authorities, courts, tribunals, government agencies and law enforcement agencies. While it is unlikely, we may be required to disclose Personal Information to comply with legal or regulatory requirements. We will use reasonable endeavours to notify the individual before we do this, unless we are legally restricted from doing so.
How long we keep Personal Information
Personal Information will be retained in accordance with our global data retention policy which categorises all of the information held by us and specifies the appropriate retention period for each category of Personal Information. Those periods are based on the requirements of applicable data protection laws and the purpose for which the information is collected and used, taking into account legal and regulatory requirements to retain the information for a minimum period, limitation periods for taking legal action, good practice and our general business purposes.
How we protect Personal Information
A key principle of data protection legislation is that Personal Information must be dealt with securely by means of ‘appropriate technical and organisational measures’. This involves considering matters such as risk analysis, organisational policies, and physical and technical measures, all of which contribute to ensuring the confidentiality, integrity and availability of systems and processes. Envision Pharma Group is certified under ISO/IEC 27001:2013, which is an auditable international best practice standard that formally outlines requirements for an Information Security Management System.
We may need to transfer Personal Information to locations outside of the EEA.
The level of information protection in countries outside the EEA may be less than that offered within the EEA. Where this is the case, we will implement appropriate measures (such as the EU standard clauses) to ensure that Personal Information remains adequately protected and secure in accordance with applicable data protection laws.
An individual’s rights regarding their Personal Information
Under certain circumstances, an individual has rights under certain data protection legislation with respect to their Personal Information which may include some or all of the following:
- The right of access. Subject to certain exceptions, this is the right to request a copy of the Personal Information we hold about an individual and how we use it.
- The right to rectification. This is the right to require relevant Personal Information be corrected, if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
- The right to erasure (right to be forgotten). This is the right to request the removal or deletion of Personal Information that we use about an individual, unless we are required to retain such data in order to comply with a legal obligation or to establish, exercise or defend legal claims, or if there is no compelling reason for us to continue using it.
- The right to restrict use. This is the right to request that we restrict our use of Personal Information where: (i) such Personal Information is inaccurate, (ii) our use is unlawful, or (iii) we no longer need to use such Personal Information for a particular purpose and we are unable to delete the Personal Information due to a legal or other obligation.
- The right to data portability. This is the right to request that we transmit the relevant Personal Information to a third party, provided that the individual provided such personal data to us and that we are using such personal data on the basis of that individual’s consent or in order to perform our obligations under contract with the individual, and the use is carried out by automated means.
- The right to object. This is the right to object to us using Personal Information if the use is based on our legitimate interest. We will comply with requests unless we have a compelling legitimate basis for such use which overrides the individual’s interests and rights, or our use relates to the establishment or exercise of the defense of a legal claim.
- The right to withdraw consent. If we are using Personal Information pursuant to the lawful basis of consent, the individual has the right to withdraw such consent at any time.
- Automated individual decision-making and profiling. This is the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling, which produces legal effects concerning you or similarly significantly affects you.
Such individual may also have the right to lodge a complaint in relation to our use of Personal Information with a local supervisory authority.
If an individual objects to our use of their Personal Information, or withdraws their consent to our use after having initially provided it, we will respect that choice in accordance with our legal obligations but it is likely this will make it impractical for us to deal with the relevant individual.
The California Consumer Protection Act
The California Consumer Protection Act ("CCPA") also provides certain rights to California consumers.
A California consumer is entitled to request details of the information we hold about him or her and how we use it and, under certain circumstances, has the right to request that his or her Personal Information be deleted. Such requests may be submitted through the following methods:
- By calling this toll free number: +1 800 617-7083; or
- Through this website by completing the Request Form at the bottom of this page.
We will acknowledge receipt of any request within ten (10) days and begin the process of verifying such request. Depending upon the sensitivity of the data collected and the nature of the request, we are required to verify an individual’s identity to a reasonable degree of certainty or a reasonably high degree of certainty. A reasonable degree of certainty requires matching at least two pieces of personal information provided via the toll free number or Request Form with information already maintained by us. Whereas, a reasonably high degree of certainty requires matching at least three pieces of personal information. The verification process also requires us to consider whether it is likely the submitted request is fraudulent.
A California consumer may also designate an authorized agent to make a request under the CCPA on the California consumer’s behalf. When a request is submitted by an authorized agent, we will require written evidence of the authorization and, except when the authorized agent has a power of attorney pursuant to California Probate Code sections 4000 to 4465, we will also need to verify the agent’s identity as well as the consumer’s identity.
Please be aware, that the CCPA prohibits discriminatory treatment of a California consumer that exercises his or her right conferred by the CCPA.
