First and foremost, the OneSource Website only collects your personal information if you choose to give it to us. While we retain the right to share your personal information with our corporate affiliates, with outside companies or agents working on our behalf to help fulfill our business obligations, and as further described in the OneSource Enrollment and Authorization Form that you have completed, we do not share any of your personal information with other third parties for their own use unless you explicitly give us permission to do so.
This Privacy Statement applies only to personal information collected through the OneSource Website. Other Alexion privacy policies govern personal information that is collected through sources other than the OneSource Website.
Information Collected – Information You Give Us
Through the OneSource Website, we collect only your personal information when you choose to submit it to us, and we use it only for those purposes which you have approved (including the authorization granted in your OneSource Enrollment and Authorization Form). In some cases, we remove personal identifiers from data and maintain it in aggregate form. We may combine this data with other information to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information helpful to us in improving our products and services.
Automatically Collected Information
We automatically collect certain types of information whenever you interact with us on the OneSource Website and in some e-mails we may send each other in relation to or as a result of using the OneSource Website. Automatic technologies we use may include, for example, web server logs and IP addresses, cookies and web beacons.
Web Server Logs and IP Addresses: An IP address is a number assigned to your computer or mobile device whenever you access the Internet that allows computers, mobile devices and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. Alexion collects IP addresses to conduct system administration and report aggregate information to affiliates, business partners, service providers and/or vendors to conduct website and Application analysis and performance reviews.
Web Beacons: On certain web pages or e-mails, Alexion may utilize a common Internet technology called a “web beacon” (also known as an “action tag” or “clear GIF technology”). Web beacons help analyze the effectiveness of websites by measuring, for example, the number of visitors to a site or how many visitors clicked on key elements of a site.
Web beacons, cookies and other tracking technologies do not automatically obtain personal information about you. Only if you voluntarily submit personal information, such as by registering or sending e-mails, can these automatic tracking technologies be used to provide further information about your use of the websites to improve their usefulness to you.
You have certain options regarding your use of the OneSource Website. To enroll in OneSource, you need to provide certain personal information to Alexion. A description of that information as well as authorization to use, store, transfer, and disclose that information is described in the OneSource Enrollment and Authorization Form that you signed in paper form or digitally. While using the OneSource Website, Alexion may require you to provide certain personal information in order for you to receive additional product information, information about a disease state, or other services available by means of the OneSource Website. You could decide not to submit any personal information at all by not entering it into any forms or data fields on the OneSource Website, but please note that if certain personal information is not provided, you may not be able to use certain features of the OneSource Website. It is possible to remain enrolled in OneSource but to cease using the OneSource Website and communicate with OneSource via alternative means (e.g., email, phone, etc.). It is also possible to revoke your authorization for the use of your information by following the instructions in the OneSource Enrollment and Authorization Form.
Use of Personal Information
Alexion and/or the service providers, vendors and other third parties we hire to perform services on our behalf may use any personal information you choose to give us to comply with your requests and as otherwise disclosed to you in this Privacy Statement, in your OneSource Enrollment and Authorization Form, or on the web page where you submit your information to us. We may refer to this information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our products and services. We also use depersonalized, aggregated information collected from our Sites to help us understand trends and customer needs. For example, we may analyze the gender or age of visitors to the pages about a particular medication or disease state, and we may use that analysis of aggregate data internally or share it with others.
Data Sharing and Transfer
Alexion may share personal information about you with various outside companies or service providers or vendors working on our behalf to help further our business requirements, such as providing customer service, sending marketing communications about our products, services and offers, and doing technological maintenance.

No Third-Party Direct Marketing Use: Alexion will not sell or otherwise transfer the personal information you provide to us through the OneSource Website to any third parties for their own direct marketing use unless we provide clear notice to you and obtain your explicit consent for your data to be shared in this manner.
