For example, we store your personal data on computer systems that have various types of technical and physical access controls, such as encryption. Although Takeda has implemented commercially reasonable data security controls consistent with industry standards, Takeda cannot guarantee the security of your information or the internet. It is also important for you to remember to protect against unauthorised access to your password(s) and your computer, mobile devices, etc. If you have reason to believe that your interaction with us is no longer secure (for example, if you feel that the security of any account you might have with us has been compromised), please notify us immediately as described in the “How to Contact Us” section below.

Transfer of personal data

As Takeda is a multi-national organisation with locations in many countries around the world, your personal data may be stored and processed in any country where we have facilities or in which we engage service providers. Takeda takes steps to process personal data according to the provisions of this Notice and the requirements of applicable law.

Takeda may transfer personal data to countries outside of your country of residence. The laws of the receiving countries may not provide as stringent protections for personal data as your country of residence. In instances where a lesser level of protection is provided by a receiving country, Takeda undertakes to enter into contractual agreements (e.g., European Union Standard Contractual Clauses), or relies on other available data transfer mechanisms that aim to provide adequate protection. A copy of the EU Standard Contractual Clauses boilerplate contracts may be found at:
