5. Who will have access to your personal data?
Your personal data may be made available within the Aimmune group of companies only to our staff members that strictly require such data on a need-to-know basis, which may involve an international transfer outside the EEA. We also sometimes employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf, e.g. providing technical support for the systems where your personal data is held.
They may need access to your personal data to perform their functions but will not use your personal data for any other purpose. We will only ever share your personal data in accordance with the protections mandated by GDPR.
We may also disclose personal data to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, in response to a non-mandatory request for information made by a governmental or state body, or as part of an investigation of unlawful activity.
6. International data transfers
Your personal data may be transferred to countries located outside your country, including to countries that may not provide a similar or adequate level of protection to that provided by your country. In particular, we may share your personal data with one of our group companies Aimmune Therapeutics, Inc., incorporated in California, USA, in which case we will only do so subject to the necessary protections mandated by GDPR and specifically by implementing the standard data protection clauses adopted by the EU Commission and supplementary safeguards.
We have considered the specific risks in doing so and are satisfied that the enhanced security, technical and organizational measures which we have put in place provide an appropriate level of protection for your personal data to continue to be able to do so. A copy of this information can be obtained by contacting us.
The security of your personal data is important to us. We take reasonable steps, including technical, administrative and physical safeguards, designed to protect the personal data submitted to us from loss, misuse and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
We will ask any agents and service providers to whom we may transfer your personal data to take comparable steps to protect that security. However, no method of security or method of transmission over the Internet is entirely secure. You should always use caution when transmitting personal data over the Internet.
8. Retention of your personal data
We may retain your personal data for as long as your personal data is needed for the specific business purpose for which it was collected. In some cases, we may be required to further retain your personal data to comply with laws or regulations or other legal obligations, resolve disputes and enforce our agreements.
9. External links
The Site may, from time to time, contain links to external sites operated by third parties. We are not responsible for these third-party sites or the content of such third-party sites. Once you have left the Site, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any personal data which you provide.
We may contact you periodically by email to provide you with programs, products, services and content that may be of interest to you. If applicable law requires that we receive your explicit consent (“opt in”) before we send you certain types of marketing communications, we will only send you those types of communications after receiving your explicit consent.
If you wish to stop receiving these types of communications from us, you can opt-out at any time by contacting us at the email and address as described below.
11. Your rights

- Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a “data subject access request”). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it;
- Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected;
- Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request;
- Object to processing of your personal data, on grounds relating to your particular situation, where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) but you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms; Where your personal data are processed for direct marketing purposes, you have the right to object at any time to processing of your personal data without reason;
- Request restriction of processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data: (a) if you want us to establish the data’s accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) 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 (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it;
- Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party (commonly known as “right to data portability”); and
- Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent.
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, please Contact Us as set out in Section 2 above.

Use of Google Analytics
As a rule, any information generated by the cookie about your use of our Site will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States, a country which may not provide a level of data protection considered adequate in the EEA. We will only disclose your personal data to Google in the USA if you have provided your consent. In order to ensure your personal data is adequately protected, Google further undertakes to comply with the EU standard contractual clauses (processors) (see https://privacy.google.com/businesses/processorterms/mccs/). In addition, as a supplementary measure to protect your data, this Site has implemented the IP-anonymization functionality offered by Google. This means your IP address will, before being transferred to the USA, be shortened by Google; only in exceptional cases your full IP address will be transferred to a server of Google in the US and be shortened there.
Google will use this information as our processor to help us evaluate the use of our Site, to compile reports on Site activity and to provide other statistical and analytical services relating to usage of our Site. While we instruct Google as processor for the web analysis services, Google may on the basis of your consent also access and process certain of your data as controller, and use your data for its own purposes, such as to create profiles and to link your information to any Google account information. This means that any data collected via cookies may be linked also to other information available to Google, such as your search histories, usage data collected via other devices and all other data that Google receives about you. Your data may be shared by Google with third parties, including in case of requests from U.S. government agencies.
The use of Google Analytics and the related processing of your personal data by Aimmune is based on your consent, which you can provide via our cookie banner or our cookie preference settings page. You can withdraw your consent and prevent the collection of data via Google Analytics about your use of our Site (including your IP address) via our cookie preference settings page. You can further deactivate Google’s tracking features and opt-out of being tracked by Google Analytics across all websites by downloading and installing a browser-plugin which is available here.
Please be aware that you will have to repeat the above processes in case you use a different device or another browser.
