Celgene Corporation Privacy and Data Protection Policy

Celgene Corporation recognizes the importance of protecting the privacy of information we collect from visitors to our Web sites. To this end, we are committed to using our best efforts to respect our visitors’ privacy. While the security of information in transit over the Internet cannot be assured, our privacy practices are designed to give customers choices and control over personally identifiable information and to ensure that we use information we receive in ways compatible with the purposes for which it has been collected by the individual. We have established this privacy policy for the Celgene Corporation global network of Web sites and are posting it here so that you can understand the care with which we intend to treat your information.

What information do we collect and how do we use it?

Some of the information we keep on our Web server is information that site visitors volunteer to provide through forms and some is collected automatically. We only collect personally identifiable data, such as your name or email address or geographic location, when it is voluntarily submitted to us.

Our server automatically collects information in aggregate form to track the total number of visitors to our site, the number of visitors to each page of our site, and the domain names of our visitors’ Internet service providers. No personally identifiable information is collected automatically. We use this aggregate information to help us better understand site visitors’ needs and to improve our products and services.

In some places on our site, Celgene uses a technology called cookies. A cookie is a token that a server gives to your browser when you access a Web page. Cookies help provide additional functionality, making a visit to our Web sites more efficient for the visitor. The use of cookies allows us to collect more accurate information regarding aggregate use of our Web sites. In order to provide the highest possible level of customer service, cookies allow us to track paths through the site to identify users’ unmet information needs. We do not collect personally identifiable data through cookies.

Celgene offers site visitors the option of submitting a resume for employment consideration. Resumes submitted through our Web site are shared only internally or with vendors Celgene has engaged to assist us with our Human Resource processes. Any vendors or service organizations Celgene engages to assist us are also required to follow this privacy policy.

Visitors to our Web site may email us from time to time with requests for information. The information provided in these email messages is used to respond to your request.

Celgene Web sites are not intended or designed for children under the age of 13. We do not collect personally identifiable data from any person we know to be under the age of 13.

With whom do we share the information we collect?

We do not share information we collect from our Web sites with other organizations except for members of the Celgene group of companies in the United States, the European Union, and elsewhere, vendors or service organizations we have engaged to assist us with completing a service (a CME organization to award continuing medical education credits for example), or unless required by law (reporting safety information to regulatory authorities for example). Any vendor or service organization to which we provide such information is also required to follow this Privacy Policy. We do not sell or rent personal information to other organizations for their commercial use. We do not partner with or have special relationships with any ad server companies.

Some users of our Web sites are invited to participate in nonpublic, secure (password-protected) sites. Members who choose to participate in these sites also have access to their own and other members’ profile information, including personal contact information.

How can site visitors view, change, or delete their information?

You may have access to your personal information at any time to revise, correct, or delete it by contacting us. For previous submissions related to Medical Services please contact Medinfo@celgene.com. For previous submissions related to Career and Employment please contact Careersnj@celgene.com. For previous submissions related to Investor Relations requests please contact ir@celgene.com. For previous submissions related to Patient Support contact patientsupport@celgene.com. For all other inquiries please email us at privacy@celgene.com.

How is personal information secured and protected?

Personally identifiable data are stored in secure databases relevant for the purposes for which it was collected that are accessible only to authorized Celgene employees and contracted vendors.

What is the policy related to third-party sites?

Celgene provides links to third-party sites as a convenience to our site visitors. Links to third-party sites do not constitute an endorsement or a warranty of any kind. Celgene is not responsible for the privacy practices or the content of such Web sites. We suggest contacting these sites directly for information on their data collection and distribution policies.

What if this Privacy Policy changes?

From time to time, we may use Web site visitor information for new, unanticipated uses not previously disclosed in our privacy policy. Any changes to our Privacy Policy will be promptly communicated on this page. We will also send visitors for whom we have a valid email address a notice through email with a link to this page and provide an option to opt out of new uses.
