If you would like to request to review, correct, update, suppress, restrict or delete personal data that you have provided to us through the Site, or if you would like to request to receive an electronic copy of such personal data for purposes of transmitting it to another company, you may contact us at DPO@celltrion.com or DPO_EU@celltrion.com, if you live in EU/EEA. We will respond to your request consistent with applicable law.

In your request, please tell us what personal data you would like to have changed, whether you would like to have it suppressed from our database, or otherwise let us know what limitations you would like to put on our use of it. For your protection, we may need to verify your identity before implementing your request. We will try to comply with your request as soon as reasonably practicable, but in any case within a calendar month.

If you live in Europe (EU/EEA), you have the following specific rights with respect to our use and processing of your personal data:

  • a) Right to be informed - you have the right to enquire what data is held about you as an individual.
  • b) Right to access - you have the right to request a copy of all data held about you as an individual, including emails in which your name has been mentioned, or other structured records.
  • c) Right of rectification - you have the right to request corrections to information held about you which is erroneous.
  • d) Right to data portability - you have the right to request structured personal data in a machine-readable format.
  • e) Right to opt-out from marketing - you have the right to opt-out from marketing purposes at any time.

Note that the Right to be forgotten (also known as “Right of Erasure”) is not absolute, and may be denied to comply with a legal obligation. Furthermore, there is no right to object to processing, because the data is necessary to be processed for the performance of a contract (the exception to this is marketing.)

At any time, you have the right to complain to Celltrion's DPO or a relevant supervisory authority. This will usually be the Data Protection Authority located in the country where you are normally resident. The following link provides a list of the relevant authorities within the EU: https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en

5. How we store your Data; International Transfers

Your personal information may be transferred to, and processed in, countries other than the country in which you are resident. These countries may have data protection laws that are different to the laws of your country.

Specifically, our servers are located in South Korea and our group companies and third party service providers and partners operate around the world. This means that when we collect your personal information, we may process it in any of these countries.

However, we have taken appropriate safeguards to require that your personal information will remain protected in accordance with this Privacy Notice. These include implementing the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses for transfers of personal information between our group companies, which require all group companies to protect personal information they process from the EEA in accordance with European Union data protection law.

Our Standard Contractual Clauses can be provided on request. We have implemented similar appropriate safeguards with our third-party service providers and partners and further details can be provided upon request.

On 17 December 2021, the European Commission (the Commission) and on 23 November 2022, the Information Commissioner's Office (the ICO) each adopted an adequacy decision for South Korea. This means that free unrestricted transfers of personal data from the European Economic Area (EEA) and/or the UK to private and public entities in South Korea will be permitted from that date onwards (including remote access from South Korea) without the need for certain restrictions such as, but not limited to, implementation of Standard Contractual Clauses.

6. Security Measures

We seek to use reasonable organizational, technical and administrative measures to protect your personal data. Specific measures we use include encrypting your personal information in transit and at rest.

  • Our organizational measures include establishment and implementation of internal management plans, regular employee training, etc.
  • Our technical measures include installation of security programs, encryption of matters such as unique identifiers, installation of access control systems, and careful management of access authority.
  • Our physical measures includes access controls for the data processing room or data storage room.

7. Data Retention

We will retain your personal data for as long as needed or permitted in light of the purpose(s) for which it was obtained and as outlined in this Privacy Notice. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include: (i) the length of time we have an ongoing relationship with you and provide the Site to you; (ii) whether there is a legal obligation to which we are subject; or (iii) whether retention is advisable in light of our legal position (such as in regard to the enforcement of the Site Terms of Use, applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).

Unless otherwise required by law, the general retention period for each of the personal data obtained by us is as follows:

  • Personal identification number for confirmation of name: 3 years
  • Records on consumer complaints or settlement of disputes: 5 years from the termination date of handling the dispute
  • Cases relating to product administration and medical information relating to the products: 5 years from receipt
  • Personal data processed in connection with product research, development and improvement: 5 years after completion of the project (pseudonymized information will be kept after 5 years retention period)

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information or the applicable retention period elapses, whichever is later, we will either delete or anonymize it or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.

8. Minors

This Site is neither designed nor intended for use by children under the age of 16. We do not knowingly collect any personal data from anyone under the age of 16 without the prior, verifiable consent of a parent or guardian. Such parent or guardian may have the right, upon request, to view the information provided by the child and require that it be deleted. Moreover, all minors should seek their parent's or guardian's permission prior to using or disclosing any personal data on this website or online resource.
