At Organon & Co., Privacy begins with trust.

The Organon¹ & Co. Global Privacy Office maintains a privacy program-based on four privacy values that provide the foundation for responsible engagement, interactions and use of information about people. These values are:

  • respect for individual privacy expectations,
  • building and preserving trust,
  • preventing privacy harms, and
  • compliance with the letter and spirit of privacy and data protection laws around the world.

Our privacy program is built on a platform of organizational accountability at all levels for privacy, stewardship of the data we use to operate our business, consistent global privacy and data protection practices and standards that uphold high ethical standards across our business practices, and ongoing oversight to ensure that we continue to respond to changes in privacy expectations as technology and our business continue to evolve.

Our Approach to Privacy Trust

We believe that trust is a core privacy value and essential to our corporate mission to deliver ingenious health solutions that enable people to live their best lives. Our global privacy program strategy aims to drive trust in how we engage with people and how we access, use and transfer information about people around the world.

Consistent Global Standards

We work to implement and uphold consistent global privacy standards to provide assurance for how we manage our privacy and data protection obligations across countries and regions and to support our APEC Cross Border Privacy Rules certification. This certification is based on our Cross Border Privacy Rules Policy.

Transparency

We recognize that it can be complex for people to understand all of the different ways that information about them can be observed, sensed, collected, shared, used, analyzed and transferred. We use a variety of approaches to support our goal of making our practices transparent both to people about whom we process information as well as regulators and their agents who review our practices. Key examples include:

  • Online Privacy – our Internet Privacy Policy describes the ways in which we process information about people online;
  • Tracking Technologies – our Global Online Tracking Policy  describes the ways in which our web sites and online services use cookies and other online trackers
  • Contextual Notices – which we provide at the time you use or participate in our services
  • Comprehensive Privacy Notices – these are intended to provide a thorough perspective on how our privacy practices apply to specific stakeholders.
