Cookies

Our Websites use cookies to distinguish you from other users of our Websites and store and track information about you. This helps to provide us with a more accurate analysis of activity on the Websites. A “cookie” is a file that contains an alphanumeric identifier that is sent by a web server to a web browser where it is stored. The Identifier gets returned to the server each time the browser requests a page from the server. Cookies do not usually contain any information that is personal data but any personal data about you that we hold may be linked to information stored in and obtained from cookies. We treat any Identifier as being personal data.

Using cookies helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our Websites and also allows us to improve the Websites.

  • business partners, suppliers and sub-contractors for the performance of any contract we enter into with you;
  • analytics and search engine providers such as Google Analytics and our webhosting company that assist us in the improvement and optimisation of our Websites;

Where we store your personal data

All information you provide to us is stored on secure servers.

The transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our Websites or to us by email. Any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.

Retention of your personal data

Neuraxpharm will not keep any personal data for longer than is necessary for the relevant purpose for which it was collected in the first place.

In any event, Neuraxpharm will retain material containing any personal data:

  • if we are obliged to do so by law (and to the extent necessary);
  • if it reasonably appears that the material in question could be relevant to ongoing or prospective legal proceedings;
  • if it is necessary to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.

Security of your personal data

Neuraxpharm takes all reasonable technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of your personal data and prevent its loss or misuse. Our servers are password and firewall protected. However, you acknowledge that transmission of information through the internet can never be entirely secure so we can never give any absolute guarantee in this respect.

Data transfers abroad

We will not transfer your information to any third party outside the European Economic Area (and certain other countries which have adequate data protection laws in place) without putting in place adequate safeguards that will be appropriate to the specific country.

Your rights

Under the Legislation, you have the following rights:

  • to request access to your personal data (“data subject access request”). If you exercise a data subject access request, you will receive a copy of the information we hold about you so that you know what it is. You will be able to check that we are processing it lawfully;
  • to request correction of the information we have about you. This enables you to correct any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you, although we may need to verify the accuracy of the new information you provide to us;
  • to request erasure of your information. This is the so-called “right to be forgotten”. It enables you to ask us to delete or remove information where there is no good reason for us to continue processing it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your information where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing where we have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data in accordance with the Legislation. In some cases, we may not be able to comply with your request for erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you at the time of your request;
  • to object to the processing of your information where we are relying on a legitimate interest and your fundamental rights and freedoms outweigh our legitimate interest;
  • to request restriction of processing of your personal data in instances where you want us first to establish the accuracy of the information or where the use of the information is unlawful, but you do not want us to erase it, or where you need us to hold the data, even if we no longer require it, as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims or if you have objected to our use of your information, but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate interests to use it;
  • to request the transfer of your information to you or to a third party if it is automated information. If you exercise this right, we will provide the information to you, or a third party as you nominate, in a structured and machine-readable format. This right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we use the information to perform a contract with you;
  • to withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data (for example, for marketing purposes). This will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain services or information to you. If this is the case, we will advise you at the time you withdraw your consent.

You can exercise your rights by contacting us at info-uk@neuraxpharm.com. You may exercise your rights free of charge.
