Privacy Policy

Hutchison China MediTech Limited 2016. All rights reserved.

Your privacy is important to us. This notice explains our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is used in this Website.

We do not collect personally identifiable information about you (such as your name, address, telephone number, fax number, e-mail address, etc.) unless you choose to provide such information to us in correspondence or through one of the online contact forms found on several of the pages of this Website. We do automatically collect certain non-personally identifiable information when you visit this Website, such as the type of browser you are using, the type of operating system you are using, and the domain name of your Internet service provider.

In the ordinary course, we use personally identifiable information you provide solely to respond to your inquiry or to provide news and updates regarding your inquiry. Any data gathered will be shared, if appropriate to the extent necessary for such use, with any of the offices of Hutchison China MediTech Limited throughout the world, including Asia, Europe and the United States. Personal information which users in the European Union provide to us may be transferred to other countries (including the United States), the data protection laws of which may differ from those of the European Union, and you expressly agree to such transfer.

We will not contact you about other matters, unless you specifically request it, nor will we share, rent, or sell your personally identifiable information outside Hutchison China MediTech Limited except as provided in this privacy policy. However, it is possible, though unlikely, that we might be forced to disclose personally identifiable information in response to legal process or when we believe in good faith that the law requires it, for example, in response to a court order, subpoena or a law enforcement agency's request.

Personally identifiable information may occasionally be transferred to third parties who act for or on behalf of Hutchison China MediTech Limited, or in connection with its business, for further processing in accordance with the purpose(s) for which the information was originally collected such as media contact. We will endeavour to ensure that such third parties will only use personally identifiable information for the agreed upon purpose, and will not sell it to any other third parties, and will not disclose it to third parties except as may be required by law. Where such disclosure of personally identifiable information to a third party occurs, we will endeavour to ensure that the processing is performed in accordance with the purposes and within the limits under which the information was originally collected.

The services available on this Website are intended for persons 18 years of age and older. Any individual who requests information about a product or service indicated for use with children must be 18 years of age or older. We will not knowingly collect, use or disclose personal data from a minor under the age of 18, without obtaining prior consent from a person with parental responsibility (e.g. a parent or guardian) through direct off-line contact.

Proper access to this Website may require the use of cookies. A cookie is a text-only string of information that a website transfers to the cookie file of the browser on your computer's hard disk so that the website can remember who you are. A cookie will typically contain the name of the domain from which the cookie has come, the "lifetime" of the cookie, and a value, usually a randomly generated unique number.

We cannot guarantee the privacy of personal information you transmit over the web or that may be collectable in transit by others.
