On what basis do we use your personal information?

GDPR sets out a number of different reasons on which a company may rely to collect and use your personal information:

We use your personal information for the following reasons:

  • For legitimate business purposes: we use your personal information to provide you with the information you request when accessing and interacting with our website.
  • To comply with our legal obligations and other demands for information: It is important to us that we are able to comply with laws, regulations and guidance, as well as the other requests or demands for data as set out here.

How long will we keep your personal information?

We will always keep your personal information for the period required by law and where we need to do so in connection with legal action or an investigation involving Allergy Therapeutics plc or any of our subsidiaries. Otherwise, we keep your personal information where you have contacted us with a question or request, for as long as necessary to allow us to respond your question or request.

We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. Therefore, we only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated herein or as provided for by various storage periods provided for by law. After discontinuation of the respective purpose or expiration of these deadlines, the corresponding data will be routinely and in accordance with the statutory provisions blocked or deleted.

Protecting your personal information

We use a variety of security measures and technologies to help protect your personal information from unauthorised access, use, disclosure, alteration or destruction in line with applicable data protection and privacy laws. For example, when we share your personal information with external suppliers, we may put in place a written agreement which commits the suppliers to keep your information confidential, and to put in place appropriate security measures to keep your information secure.

The transmission to us of information via the internet or a mobile phone network connection may not be completely secure and any transmission is at your own risk.

Your rights regarding your personal information

GDPR provides you with a number of rights over your personal information.

You may be entitled to:

What if you do not want to provide us with your personal information?

Where you are given the option to share your personal information with us, you can always choose not to do so.  

If you object to the processing of your personal information, or if you have provided your consent to processing and you later choose to withdraw it, we will respect that choice in accordance with our legal obligations. This could mean that we may not be able to perform the actions necessary to achieve the purposes as set out in the section “How do we use your personal information?” above or that you are unable to make use of the services and products offered by us.
