TRANSPARENCY AND PRIVACY

A key element in our approach to privacy at the new Merck is our commitment to transparency in our privacy program. We aim to achieve this by providing clear and understandable notices of our privacy practices that enable our stakeholders to make meaningful choices about how we collect, use and disclose personal information about them. We offer both brief point of collection privacy notices and comprehensive privacy notices.

  • Our point of collection notices are offered at the time we seek to collect certain types of personal information from our stakeholders.
  • Our comprehensive privacy notices are intended to provide a thorough perspective on how our privacy practices apply to specific stakeholders.

Our comprehensive privacy notices for certain categories of our stakeholders are listed below.

 

Mobile App Privacy

As described in our Internet Privacy Policy Statement, one type of online resource that Merck provides is mobile computing applications ("Apps") for mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Many of these can be purchased or downloaded from App Stores that are offered by the provider of the device operating system, such as Apple and Google. Some of these Apps allow you to record information within the App and store it on your device, to create reports, and to email content from the App. In some cases, that information may be "personal information" that identifies or is used to identify you, such as your name. Where the personal information you record is collected by Merck, or others working for Merck, it will be used in accordance with our Internet Privacy Policy Statement. We evaluate how some of our Apps are used by enabling data about your use of the App on your device, such as which features you used the most, to be transmitted to Flurry, an analytics service provider. If you do not want Flurry to track your use of the App on your device, you can opt-out. If you have questions, please contact the Merck Privacy Office.
