6.1 We implement and maintain appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect the information you provide to us through our Website against unauthorised disclosure, use, alteration, or destruction. In doing so, we take into consideration the nature of the information and the risks to it.
6.2 However, please note that no Internet transmission can ever be guaranteed 100% secure, and so we encourage you to take care when disclosing personal information online and to use readily available tools, such as Internet firewalls, anti-virus and anti-spyware software, and similar technologies to protect yourself online.

If any of the data collected through our Website is shared with other Astellas group companies and service providers, we will ensure that the appropriate contractual and/or other security measures are complied with. We will also take steps to ensure that all information collected through our Website is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy at all times.
