    Cookies. We and our service providers may use “cookies.” A cookie is a bit of information that a website sends to your Web browser that helps the site remember information about you and your preferences. There are two principle types of cookies:

    • “Session” cookies are temporary bits of information that are used to improve website navigation, block website visitors from providing information where inappropriate, and collect aggregate statistical information on a website. These cookies are erased once you exit your web browser or otherwise turn off your computer.
    • “Persistent” cookies are more permanent bits of information that are placed on the hard drive of your computer and stay there until you delete the cookie. Persistent cookies store information on your computer so that we can, for example, retrieve information you have previously provided (such as passwords); better determine what areas of the website you find most valuable; and customize the website based on your preferences on an ongoing basis.

    You can set your browser to accept all cookies, to reject all cookies, or to notify you whenever a cookie is offered so that you can decide each time whether to accept it. If your browser is set to reject cookies, websites that are cookie-enabled won’t recognize you when you return to the website, and some website functionality may be lost. learn more about cookies.

    At this time, our websites don’t respond to Do-Not-Track signals.

INTEREST-BASED ADVERTISING (IBA)

We try to deliver advertising for products and services you have expressed an interest in. We may partner with advertising companies that may place or recognize a unique cookie on your browser (including through the use of pixel tags), or use other technologies, to serve you ads based on your web browsing activity, purchases, interests and/or other information. This practice is commonly referred to as interest-based advertising (IBA) or online behavioral advertising (OBA). Advertising companies may also use these types of technologies to recognize you across the devices you use, such as a mobile phone or a laptop, and serve you ads on websites you visit and applications you use. read more about IBA .

Recruiting and Onboarding Portal/Site. Eisai also operates a recruiting and onboarding portal and website (“career portal/site”) to support Eisai’s recruitment efforts. The following additional provisions are applicable only to the career portal/site. Any employment offer that may result from your submitting information in response to a job opening listed on the career portal/site is in accordance with the specific terms of that offer and isn’t based in any way on the description of the job on the career portal/site. Except as otherwise prohibited by law, nothing on the career portal/site shall be construed as a contract of employment or as a guarantee of continued employment or employment for any specific duration. Employment with Eisai is "at will." That means if you’re hired, either you or Eisai can separate your employment at any time without notice or cause.

PII you submit through the career portal/site may include, but isn’t limited to: name; log-in and password, for users of the career portal/site; telephone number; email address; mailing address; age; date of birth; gender; Social Security number; driver’s license number; CV, résumé, cover letter, previous work experience and education information; employment preferences; willingness to relocate; desired salary; professional and other work-related licenses, permits and certifications held; language and other relevant skills; awards and professional memberships; eligibility to work in the United States; and available start date. We don’t require, but you may voluntarily choose to provide, other relevant information as part of your application. We’d prefer that you avoid submitting the following sensitive information, except where such information is legally required, or needed for us to comply with our legal obligations and internal policies relating to diversity and anti-discrimination: medical or health conditions; sexual orientation; race; ethnic origin; religious or philosophical beliefs; marital status; trade union membership; creed; nationality; national origin; and/or color.

The information that you submit in the career portal/site will be stored in the United States. It may be accessed, collected, used, transferred and disclosed by employees, consultants and/or service providers of Eisai around the world for Eisai’s recruitment functions and for related management and planning purposes, including, as permitted by local law, to: process your application; assess your capabilities and qualifications for a job; provide you with any services available on the career portal/site from time to time; communicate with you; comply with any applicable law or regulation; compile internal reports, including diversity and distribution metrics; and monitor and record services whether provided by a Eisai company or a third party.

PII you submit through the career portal/site will be added to Eisai’s candidate database and will be used for the purposes of considering whether your profile is suitable for other job vacancies at Eisai. If we elect to make you an offer, PII you submit may be incorporated into our human resources system and used to manage the new-hire process. If you become an employee, any PII that you submit may become part of your employment file and may be used for other employment/work-related purposes as permitted by local law. PII you submit through the career portal/site will be reviewed by Eisai employees or agents who have a business need to access such personal information. This may include recruiters, human resources personnel, technical services personnel and managers. We may share PII you provide as part of your application with selected service providers or consultants acting on our behalf, such as third parties assisting Eisai with the operation of the career portal/site and the storage of information collected on the career portal/site. Any such third party will be required to use appropriate measures to protect the confidentiality and security of personal information which are no less protective that those set out in this Policy.
