We collect personally identifiable information, such as names, addresses, telephone numbers and email addresses only when voluntarily provided by you when you register or otherwise voluntarily submit information to us. Some of the information we collect from you may relate to your health, which we appreciate you may consider as particularly sensitive. We will, of course, only process this information in accordance with this policy or as otherwise agreed to by you. By registering for any Pfizer website, you agree that we may use the information you have given in the following way:
Your information will be held on a database within the Unites States. Pfizer stores your personal information to enable us to address your enquiry, complaint or other matters that you have raised, and to document our response. Your information will only be used for this purpose, unless required for legal proceedings. If reporting an adverse event, the information provided will be used in order to meet our regulatory requirements relating to the safety of our medicines. It may be necessary to share your personal information with Pfizer affiliates, partners and regulatory authorities located both within and outside of your home country. In accordance with applicable law, you may have a right to access and correct your information. For any question regarding our use of your personal information please contact us by using the local Pfizer telephone number, or by e-mail.
Pfizer will collect your information as controller of the database and your details may be accessible to and used by other Pfizer group companies. As Pfizer’s parent company, Pfizer Inc., is a global organization, your information may be transferred within or outside of the following Gulf Countries (UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait) where privacy laws may be less strict than in the following Gulf Countries (UAE, Oman, Bahrain, Qatar, Kuwait). However, we will always employ appropriate technical security measures to protect your personal information to the same specification as defined in the local law and to ensure that it is not accessed by unauthorized persons.
Your information may be used by Pfizer to provide you with printed and/or online publications, telephone messages, SMS messages and/or email communications (but only if you have agreed to receive these communications from us as part of the registration process for a particular website). These will contain tailored information as part of the program concerned.
Pfizer respects the confidentiality of personal information. Only Pfizer, organizations working with Pfizer in the administration of the above information, and Pfizer group companies will have access to your information. We may use third party processors to conduct research, process information or maintain websites, content, or programs on our behalf, but your information will not be disclosed to any other third parties such as outside mailing organizations. While it is unlikely, we may be required to disclose your information by court order or to comply with other legal or regulatory requirements. We will use reasonable efforts to notify you before we do so, unless we are legally restricted from doing so.
Your information will be retained by Pfizer for the period of time that you are registered to one or more of our health-related programs.
You can unsubscribe from any Pfizer Program at any time by going to the profile page and select “No” for a channel or by referring to Pfizer sales representative in your district. We aim to deal with your request (including unsubscribing you from any program) within ten working days of its receipt.
Pfizer may collect information from you by using “cookies”. Cookies are a small file of letters and numbers that we put on our computer if you agree. These cookies can tell us how and when pages in a website are visited and by how many people. With the information we receive through this technology, we hope to improve our sites. Although cookies do not normally contain personally identifiable information, if you have provided us with information about yourself, we may associate your registration information with cookies or other tracking utilities or website places on your computer's hard drive. Associating a cookie with your registration information allows us to offer increased personalization and functionality. Without cookies, this functionality would not be possible.
Your web browser can be set to allow you to control whether you will accept cookies, reject cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is sent to you. If your browser is set to reject cookies, websites that are cookie-enabled will not recognize you when you return to the website, and some website functionality may be lost. The Help section of your browser will tell you how to prevent your browser from accepting cookies. To find out more about cookies, including how to see what cookies have been set and how to manage or delete them, visit www.allaboutcookies.org.
In addition, we may use other tracking systems like pixel-tags. Pixel tags, sometimes called web beacons, are similar in function to cookies but because of their insignificant size, they are not visible. However, they are used to pass certain information to our servers to personalize our websites and to track your usage across other Pfizer websites. In addition, we may also use pixel tags in our HTML based emails.
We may disclose personal data to companies that were formerly wholly or partly included in the Pfizer family of companies to which we provide services during a transition period following separation.
