Access to personal data and transfer

In the course of our activities and for the same purposes as those listed herein your personal data may be accessed by or transferred to the following categories of recipients, on a need to know basis to achieve such purposes:

  • our personnel (including personnel, departments or other companies of the Bausch Health group);
  • our suppliers and services providers that provide services and products to us;
  • our IT systems providers, cloud service providers, database providers and consultants;
  • our business partners who offer products or services jointly with us or with our subsidiaries or affiliates;

The above third parties are contractually obliged to protect the confidentiality and security of your personal data, in compliance with applicable law.

Your personal data can also be accessed by or transferred to any national and/or international regulatory, enforcement, public body or court, where we are required to do so by applicable law or regulation or at their request.

The personal data we collect from you may also be processed, accessed or stored in a country outside the country where Bausch Health is located, which may not offer the same level of protection of personal data.

If we transfer your personal data to external companies in other jurisdictions, we will make sure to protect your personal data by applying the level of protection required under the local data protection/privacy laws and only transferring your personal data on the basis of standard contractual clauses approved by the European Commission or any other equivalent legal means where applicable.

For intra-group transfers of personal data Bausch Health entities have signed dedicated Standard Contractual Clauses.

 

Protecting your personal data

We have implemented appropriate technical and organizational measures to provide an adequate level of security and confidentiality to your personal data.

 

Data Retention

We will only retain personal data we may have about you for as long as necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected, in order to comply with legal or regulatory requirements or  until the moment we receive an e-mail from you “opting out”  from receiving marketing communications from us.
