We process your personal data for the purposes of (i) being able to provide you with an answer to your medical information enquiry; (ii) enabling product quality investigations, should your enquiry
relate to a product quality issue; (iii) enabling proper safety reporting escalation, should your enquiry relate to an adverse event linked to a Lundbeck product.
This is done to ensure high standards of quality and safety of our medicinal products and to enhance patient care and patient safety.
How did we obtain your personal data?

What is the legal basis for our processing of your personal data?
The legal bases for our collection and processing of your personal data as set out above are (depending on the circumstances):
- Legal obligation to establish a scientific service in charge of information about the medicinal products placed on the market as set out in Article 98 of Directive 2001/83/EC on the Community code relating to medicinal product for human use, cf. GDPR Article 6 (1) (c);
- Local legislation (please contact your local Lundbeck company for more information).
Will we disclose your personal data to third parties?
To accommodate inspection requests and to continuously ensure the high standards of quality and the safety of Lundbeck’s products, we disclose and share your personal data with the following

The disclosure to third parties is done in accordance with the legal bases listed above – i.e. Article 111 of Directive 2001/83/EC on the Community code relating to medicinal product for human use,
cf. GDPR Article 6 (1) (c), or local legislation, as applicable.
Will we disclose your personal data to data processors?

processing is subject to the provision of sufficient guarantees by the data processor to implement appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the protection of your rights as a data
Will we transfer your personal data to recipients in countries outside the EU/EEA?
In order to comply with applicable legislation, we may transfer your personal data to relevant health authorities outside the EU/EEA. The legal basis for such transfer is GDPR Article 49 (1) (d), as the
transfer is deemed necessary for important reasons of public interest (public health).
Furthermore, if relevant in order to handle your request, your personal data may be transferred to a private recipient in a country outside of EU/EEA not providing the same level of protection as
within the EU/EEA. Lundbeck will in this case ensure that such transfer(s) will be carried out in accordance with the applicable data protection legislation, including the GDPR. Such transfer may
only take place if we can ensure an adequate level of data protection, for example by choosing a recipient of data that adheres to the EU-US Privacy Shield (if the transfer is made to the United
States of America) or by ensuring that the recipient enters into the EU Standard Contractual Clauses with Lundbeck. The Standard Contractual Clause are available in several languages here.
If your personal data gets transferred to other entities in the Lundbeck group, the transfer will be based on the Lundbeck Intra-Group Data Protection Agreement or the Lundbeck Binding Corporate Rules (once approved and implemented). More information regarding this can be obtained by contacting your local Lundbeck company or Lundbeck’s Group Data Protection Officer (email@example.com).
How long will we store your personal data?
We store your personal data for as long as necessary to fulfil the purposes described above, however, for no longer than the lifetime of the Lundbeck product in question plus additional 10.
Subject to certain exceptions and restrictions set out in applicable legislation, you enjoy the right to request access to your personal data, to have your personal data rectified, to have your personal
data deleted, and to have the processing thereof restricted.
If you are not satisfied with Lundbeck’s handing of your request, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority, e.g. the Danish Data Protection Agency
(Datatilsynet) or the national supervisory authority in your country. A list of all EU authorities is available here.
