This policy applies to the personal data for which Aptahem acts as data controller; in other words, where we have control over what happens with your data and how this data is handled.

Aptahem is committed to ensure that your privacy is protected and will only process your personal data in conformity with the General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR (in effect since May 25, 2018). Should we ask you to provide certain information by which you can be identified when using this website, then you can be assured that it will only be used in accordance with this privacy policy.

How we use your personal data

Profile data or customer relationship data

We may collect and store the following information on our customers and business partners (or their personnel) to create profiles in order to facilitate the administration of our services and to maintain contact:

  • name, surname and job title
  • contact information including telephone number or email address
  • internet protocol (IP) address
  • demographic information such as postcode
  • social media tracking pixels that allow platforms such as Facebook and Twitter to interact with this website
  • other information relevant to customer and/or job offers

The legal basis for this processing is your consent OR the performance of a contract between you and us and/or taking steps, at you request, to enter into such a contract OR our legitimate interests, namely the proper administration of our website and business, our relationships with customers, communicating with customers and keeping records of those communications.

When you voluntarily provide us this information through our website or any other information channel, the personal data provided by you will be used only for the purpose of responding to your query or your request for information. The legal basis for such processing is your consent. We will not use this personal data for direct marketing purposes.

Job applicant data

If you post your personal data as a job applicant, the personal data provided by you will be used for recruitment and employment purposes or –if you agree to this- for informing you of future job opportunities. The legal basis for this processing is taking steps, at you request, to enter into a contract between you and us OR your consent.

Clinical trial data

Subjects may participate in clinical trials of Aptahem’s products in order to further research and develop these therapeutics drugs. By giving consent to participate in such clinical trials, the doctor or investigator conducting the clinical trial will collect personal data of the subject, including data relating to their health and pharmaceutical needs. Aptahem receives this information (required by law) in a pseudonymized form. This means we cannot directly identify the subject.

If you are an investigator/doctor or other study personnel conducting clinical trials of Aptahem your personal data (e.g. contact details, qualifications, CV) will be collected. This to meet global regulatory and compliance guidelines (legal obligation).

Transfers to third parties

We may disclose your personal data to third parties in the following cases:

  • insofar as reasonably necessary for our business or administration purposes. Under certain circumstances, these third parties provide technical, organisational or consultancy support services (e.g. IT-support or legal support) and may occasionally have access to your personal data in order to enable them to provide these services.

  • when disclosure is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which we are subject; or
  • when we have your consent to disclose your personal data.

Your personal data will not be transferred to third parties without taking appropriate protection.

We will never sell or rent your personal data to third parties.

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave our site, you should note that we do not have any control over these other websites. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites; and such sites are not governed by this privacy policy. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy policy applicable to the websites concerned.

Retaining and deleting personal data

Personal data that we process for any purpose or purposes shall not be kept for longer than is necessary for that purpose or those purposes.
