We do not sell, rent or trade personal information users submit through our Site, nor disclose it by any means except as described in this privacy policy. At all times, personal information is treated confidentially and in accordance with applicable laws. We may share your personal information among Bristol-Myers Squibb related entities in the European Economic Area and Switzerland, for the limited purposes agreed in this privacy policy. We may also share the information with service providers for them to perform services as data processors on our behalf, only for the purposes of data processing and in compliance with the applicable laws (for example, to process online registration forms for events or to administer our blogs). Please note that some of these service

Nevertheless, we will contractually require that sufficient security and privacy safeguards will be provided by the service providers to ensure an adequate level of protection of your information and disclose it always in compliance with the applicable laws.

These service providers are not authorized by us to use or disclose the information except as necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements. In addition, we may disclose information about you (i) if we are required to do so by law or pursuant to legal process, (ii) in response to a request from law enforcement authorities or other government officials, or (iii) when we believe disclosure is necessary or appropriate to prevent physical harm or financial loss or in connection with an investigation of suspected or actual illegal activity.

We reserve the right to transfer any information we have about you in the event we sell or transfer all or a portion of our business or assets and in accordance to the requirements provided for in the applicable laws. Should such a sale or transfer occur, we will use reasonable efforts to try to require that the transferee uses the personal information you have provided through this Site in a manner that is consistent with this privacy policy.

Bristol-Myers Squibb has established a set of binding corporate rules (BCR) ensuring that personal data from the European Economic Area (EEA) is adequately protected while being processed by Bristol-Myers Squibb Affiliates.
