Who is the controller for processing of your Personal Data?

Myovant Sciences Inc., 2000 Sierra Point Parkway, 9th Floor, Brisbane, CA 94005, USA (“Myovant Sciences Inc.”) and Myovant Sciences GmbH, Aeschengraben 27, 4051 Basel, Switzerland (”Myovant Sciences GmbH”) are joint controllers for the processing under this Privacy Notice with Myovant Sciences Inc. being the lead controller, unless we inform you otherwise in an individual case.

This Privacy Notice also applies where a Myovant company other than Myovant Sciences Inc. or Myovant Sciences GmbH (a ”Myovant Affiliate”) is the controller. This may be the case, in particular, if your data are processed by a Myovant Affiliate in the context of its own legal obligations or where data are exchanged with a Myovant Affiliate, or where you otherwise interact with a Myovant Affiliate. Only if a Myovant Affiliate, being a controller, starts sharing your data with other Myovant companies for their own purposes, they themselves become controllers.

There may be constellations in which we are responsible for data processing along with third parties (including other Myovant companies). In these cases, they process personal data either as sole controllers (if you have any questions regarding the data processing of sole controllers, please contact them directly) or, if they participate in determining the purpose or means of the processing, as joint controllers (we remain your primary contact, even if there are joint controllers). If you wish to receive information about the controllers for a specific processing activity, you are welcome to contact us as part of your access right.

International data transfers

Your Personal Data may be transferred outside of your country of residence to countries that may have different data protection laws which may not provide the same data protection guarantees as your country of residence; in principle in any country in the world. In such case, Myovant will take all necessary steps to ensure the safety of your Personal Data in accordance with the applicable privacy and data protection laws (e.g., enter data protection contracts with the new EU Standard Contractual Clauses), unless we can rely on an exception or the recipient is subject to a legally accepted set of rules to ensure data protection.

Myovant takes appropriate technical and organizational security measures in order to maintain the required security of your Personal Data and ensure its confidentiality, integrity and availability, and to protect if from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration, or disclosure.
