Use of Cookies and Other Technologies

We and our analytics, advertising, and other service providers use “cookies” and other technologies such as GIF files or web beacons. Cookies are identifiers that facilitate the interaction between your computer or device and the Services. Different types of cookies, such as session and persistent cookies, are used for different purposes. We and our service providers may use cookies or other technologies to facilitate site navigation, personalize your experience, perform analytics, serve you relevant ads (subject to certain restrictions described below), and remember your information when you use the Services. Information collected through cookies and other technologies may include your IP address, geolocation information, device information, browsing activity, and search engine referrals. When you access the Services, our advertising and analytics partners may collect precise geolocation information to provide targeted advertising and analytics services. You can manage the collection of location information using your device settings and controls. In addition, you may adjust your browser settings to modify or block cookies or other tracking technologies. You should note, however, that without these technologies some of our website’s functions may not be available. Read our Cookies Policy to learn more about cookies and how you can change your preferences.

Interest-Based Advertising

Third-party advertising partners may use cookies and similar technology to collect certain information regarding use of the Services and other websites automatically, and may use the information to serve targeted ads for products and services that may be of interest based on your activity. We may limit interest-based advertising to users in certain jurisdictions as we deem necessary to comply with applicable laws. To learn more about interest-based advertising and how you can opt out of having your web browsing information used for interest-based advertising by companies that participate in the Network Advertising Initiative (“NAI”) or Digital Advertising Alliance (“DAA”), visit the NAI (US) and DAA Ad Choices  (US) websites. Note, however, that not all advertising providers participate in the NAI and DAA. In addition, if you opt out, you may still see online advertising from us and third parties, but the ads may be less relevant to you. If you delete or block cookies, buy or use a different device, access the Services from a different device, log in under a different name, or change web browsers, you will need to opt out again. Some web browsers may transmit “do not track” signals; at this time, we do not respond to such signals.

Sharing or Disclosing Your Information

We may share or disclose personal information to conduct our business and pursue our business interests (see How We Use Your Information above). For example:

  • Your personal information may be shared among Seagen Canada Inc., its affiliates, and service providers who assist us in providing our services and conducting our business, including to respond to requests that you make, communicate with you, conduct market research and marketing activities, and provide information about products and disease and health-related topics of interest.
  • We disclose information to healthcare professionals, third parties (vendors, suppliers, contractors, and business partners), and government officials (e.g., law enforcement authorities, the courts, regulatory authorities).
  • We share pseudonymized personal data from clinical trials with research and development partners and consultants to help in the conduct and planning for our clinical trials and products. We also share clinical trial data with government authorities to meet regulatory requirements.
  • We share personal information provided by job applicants with third-party recruiting agencies and platforms that perform services on our behalf.
  • We will disclose information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation, or other government authority (such as reporting safety information to Health Canada and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration), or if we believe it is necessary to protect our company, our website visitors, or others.
  • We may transfer your personal information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation, or other corporate reorganization in which Seagen participates, or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of Seagen's assets who agrees to use your information in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

International Data Transfers

We store personal data on servers located in the U.S. and other countries that may have different data protection laws than those in the country where you live. Those laws may require disclosure of your personal information to authorities in those countries. In addition, we may share personal data with our affiliates and external service providers and third parties in the U.S. and other countries.

In the case of any cross-border data transfer (the transfer of your personal data to other countries), Seagen will implement appropriate safeguards to provide an adequate level of data protection; such measures may include contractual clauses or other approved mechanisms for cross-border data transfers.


Our products, this web site, and our other Services are intended for use by individuals who are legally considered to be adults in their jurisdiction of residence. We do not knowingly collect any personal information directly from individuals who have not reached the age of majority (minors).

Links to Third-Party Sites

Some of our websites or interactive features may contain links to third-party websites or services that are not under our control or ownership. Such links do not constitute an endorsement of those third parties or the content displayed therein, and you agree that Seagen is not responsible for the content of such websites. We are not responsible for how these sites operate or treat your information. You acknowledge that we provide these links to you only as a convenience, and you understand that your information will be used as described by the third parties in their privacy policies.

Data Security

We implement reasonable physical, technical and organizational security measures to help protect personal data from accidental or unauthorized access, use, loss, destruction, disclosure, or modification when transmitting or storing personal data. In addition, we limit access to your personal data to those employees, agents, contractors, and other third parties who have a business need to know.

Data Retention

We retain information collected for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes for which the information is collected, as required or permitted by applicable laws, or for other legitimate purposes such as disaster recovery, resolving disputes, and enforcing our agreements. In some cases, we anonymize or de-identify personal information so that there is no serious possibility of linking the de-identified data back to an identifiable individual. In such cases, we may use the anonymized or deidentified data without further notice.

Your Privacy Rights in Canada

Depending on where you reside, applicable laws may provide you with certain rights with respect to your personal data.
