In this policy, "personal information" means information from which a person’s identity can reasonably be ascertained and “health information” means information about a person’s physical or mental health.

It may also be processed in the United Kingdom or another country outside Australia by us, a Norgine group company, or one or more suppliers to any Norgine group company. By submitting your information (including your personal and health information), you agree to this transfer, storing and processing.

All information you provide to Norgine is stored on our secure servers. Where Norgine has given you (or where you have chosen) a password which enables you to access certain parts of our website, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential, and must not share your password with anyone. Although we will take all steps reasonably necessary to protect your information (including your personal and health information), Norgine cannot guarantee the security of your information posted or transmitted to our website, as the posting and transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure and use is at your own risk.

Your information (including personal and health information) collected may be transferred to third parties who provide services to us or to another Norgine group company, including those located outside Australia. Such third parties and (due to different country requirements) Norgine group companies, may operate under different privacy policies. However, Norgine will try to ensure that these third parties provide the same level of protection as us and, where appropriate, Norgine will contractually require them to process personal and health information transferred to them only for the purposes expressly authorised by us.
