Teva uses the following categories of cookies on the Site:
Category 1: Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the Site to function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions made by you which amount to a request for services, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block or alert you about these cookies, but some parts of the Site will not then work.
Category 2: Performance Cookies
These cookies collect information on how people use and interact with the Site. We use these cookies to help us understand how users arrive at the Site, browse or use the Site and highlight areas where we can improve such as navigation, user experience and marketing campaigns. Where these are used in emails we use them to understand whether an email was opened, clicked on or sent to spam, time stamps of the above actions, and what device was used. This helps us to understand your level of interest and engagement with the information we send to you. The data collected can be combined with other data we collect to improve how the Site works and the quality and relevance of the information we sent to email recipients. For example we use Google Analytics to better understand how users use the Site. If you don’t want Google Analytics to be used in your browser, you can install this Google add-on: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en_GB..

Teva operates internationally and will transfer your information to the recipients set out in the ‘Sharing Your Personal Data’ section. When transferring information outside your country Teva follows local privacy legislation.
For Europe (including UK and Switzerland): When transferring personal information to Israel, Teva generally relies on the European Commission’s (or local equivalent) adequacy decision with respect to the transfer of personal data to Israel; when transferring personal information to other countries outside the EEA that are not subject to an “adequacy decision” by the EU Commission (or equivalent), Teva generally relies on EU Commission approved standard contractual clauses. Information on the relevant mechanism can be provided upon request to Teva Privacy Office (contact information below).
