Because each web browser is different, please consult the instructions provided by your web browser (typically in the "help" section). Please note that you may need to take additional steps to refuse or disable certain types of tracking technologies, such as local shared objects. For example, local shared objects can be controlled through the instructions on Adobe's Setting Manager page. If you choose to refuse, disable, or delete these technologies, some of the functionality of the Services may no longer be available to you and any differences in service are related to the data. Deleting cookies may in some cases cancel the opt out selection in your browser.
Some of our third-party partners are members of the Network Advertising Initiative, which offers a single location to opt out of ad targeting from member companies.

Due to differences between websites and mobile apps, you may need to take additional steps to opt out of interest based advertising for mobile applications. Please check your device settings and mobile app permissions for additional information on how to opt out. You also may stop further data collection from a mobile application by removing it from your mobile device.
Do-Not-Track Signals and Similar Mechanisms. Certain web browsers and other programs may be used to signal your preferences to Astellas US about how or whether Astellas US or third parties may collect information about your online activities. Currently, Astellas US does not respond to such signals.

If you would like to access or delete your information, or otherwise exercise your rights, please contact us as set out in the Contact Us section below. We will respond in a manner that is appropriate in light of relevant laws. For example, we cannot provide you access to your personal information if we cannot verify your identity, and we may request further information from you to verify your request, such as, where necessary, copies of government-issued identification.
We will not discriminate against you for exercising your rights and choices, except where required or permitted by law. If you would like to use an authorized agent to exercise your rights, we may request evidence that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to submit requests to exercise rights on your behalf.
You also may have the right to be informed as to the categories of personal information that we have collected and shared or otherwise made accessible to third parties during the preceding 12 months. We provide that information through the other sections of this Privacy Statement. We share your information as described in this Privacy Statement, but we do not, and will not without consent, sell your information to third parties for money or other similar types of consideration.
In addition to other rights California residents may have under state law, California Civil Code Section 1798.83 permits California residents to request certain information regarding our disclosure of personal information to third parties for their direct marketing purposes. To make such a request, please contact us as set out in the Contact Us section below. Be sure to include your name and address; you can include your email address if you want to receive a response by email. Otherwise, we will respond by postal mail within the time required by law.
This Service is owned and operated by Astellas US, but the information you provide may be accessible by, collected by or transferred to our affiliates and subsidiaries, vendors and suppliers in other countries. Furthermore, this Privacy Statement addresses only information that is or may be collected on our US Services, which are not intended to be used by non-US residents, or information otherwise collected in the United States. If you are using this Service from a country other than the United States, your communication with us will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries. By using this Service, you consent to the collection, storage, and processing of your information in the United States and in any country to which we may transfer your information in the course of our business operations.
If you have applied for employment or a contract position with Astellas, the information submitted in your job application and that we otherwise collect in evaluating your application will be used for recruitment and other customary human resources purposes including any required government reporting and recordkeeping obligations. This information may include criminal record information and federal exclusion list status, as applicable.
We do not knowingly collect or sell any information from children, as defined by applicable law, without parental consent or as otherwise permitted by applicable law.
We take reasonable steps to protect your information from unauthorized access. You should keep in mind, however, that no internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error free. In particular, email sent to or from a website or online resource may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via email. Moreover, where you use user IDs and passwords to access the Services, it is your responsibility to safeguard your access credentials. Please note that information collected by third parties may not have the same security protections as information you submit to us, and we are not responsible for protecting the security of such information.
While our Services may provide links to other third-party websites as a service to our visitors, we do not endorse, nor are we responsible for the content of such third-party sites. Furthermore, this Privacy Statement does not apply to third-party websites, even if they are accessed through a link from an Astellas US website or online resource or otherwise directed to by one of our Services. We encourage you to review the privacy policies of any third-party website before providing any personal information.
