Information We Collect
The types of information that BeiGene may collect and receive from you while you use the Services are described in this section and include both information that you provide to us and information that we collect automatically when you use the Services.
Personal Information: Personal information is information from which an individual can be identified directly or indirectly. We may collect personal information that you provide through the Services, for example, through your completing forms or setting up accounts on the Sites, through an enrollment form in order to register for BeiGene programs and services, through requests to receive marketing materials and information, by contacting BeiGene customer service, or by responding to BeiGene questionnaires or surveys. This may include information such as your name, postal address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, device and browsing information, such as your IP address, and health, financial and professional information.
Cookies and other similar technologies: When you use our Services, we also may collect information relating to your usage and device, generally from four sources: server log files, cookies, “pixel tags,” and Google Analytics.
Pixel Tags: The Sites may use so-called “pixel tags”, “web beacons”, “clear GIFs” or similar means (collectively, “pixel tags”) to compile aggregate statistics about site usage and response rates. Pixel tags allow us to count users who have visited certain pages of the Sites, to deliver branded services, and to help determine the effectiveness of promotional or advertising campaigns. When used in HTML-formatted email messages, Pixel Tags can tell the sender whether and when the email has been opened.
Do Not Track Signals: At this time, we do not respond to “Do Not Track” signals from your web browser due to the lack of an established industry standard. For more information about “Do Not Track” signals, please visit https://allaboutdnt.com/.
THE WAY WE USE YOUR INFORMATION
We never use or share personal information provided to us in connection with the Services in ways unrelated to the purposes described below without also providing you an opportunity to opt-out or otherwise prohibit such unrelated uses.
The personal information that is collected in connection with the Services may be used in any of the following ways:
- To respond to your requests for information, products, or services;
- To provide you with general health information (such as information on certain health conditions) as well as information about our products and services;
- To provide you with marketing communications whether about a particular BeiGene product or concerning general disease information;
- To determine if you are eligible for certain products, services, or programs (such as patient assistance programs);
- To manage or develop our business relationship with you (e.g., to respond to questions, invite you to events, comply with regulatory obligations, or determine eligibility for BeiGene programs);

The information we collect from your device is used to better design our Sites. We analyze this information to enhance Site security and to track the popularity of certain pages of the Sites, the success of our email notifications, traffic levels on the Sites, and other usage data, all of which helps us to provide content tailored to your interests and improve the Sites and related Services. For example, we may understand that X number of individuals visited a certain area on our Sites, or that Y number of people applied for jobs, but we would not disclose anything that could be used to identify those individuals.
