Definition of Personal Data
Personal data means any information related to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”); an “identifiable natural person” is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, particularly by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data or an online identifier or by reference to one or more factors specific to the physical, psychological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. For the purpose of protecting and managing personal data pursuant to any applicable laws and regulations, including Personal Information Protection Act of Korea and, General Data Protection Regulation, Seegene adopts and abides by this Policy in handling and managing your personal data.
Purpose of Seegene’s use of Personal Data
We process your personal data to respond to your requests, provide you with efficient customer service, improve your navigation, offer useful content and give you any necessary or appropriate notice for your accurate understanding of the content on our website. Seegene may ask if you consent to the relevant use of your personal data for other business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding our products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products, or to notify you about special promotions or events. In such cases, the legal basis for Seegene processing that data about you may (in addition or instead) be that you have consented (Article 6 (1) (a) General Data Protection Regulation).
Seegene does not rent or sell personal data about you to any other company or group.
