Storage and Transfer of Information
Akcea, or in some cases third-party companies and/or individuals that work with or for us, may store the personally identifiable data collected via this site in an electronic database. Akcea and these third parties may also exchange such data with each other or with you over the Internet or over intranet systems to process the data, send information to you in response to your request, or otherwise carry out the purposes described above. We may also release your personally identifiable data in response to a court order, subpoena, search warrant, or applicable law or regulation. In such circumstances we will take appropriate measures to ensure that the requester understands the sensitive nature of the personally identifying information that they may receive.
While Akcea makes reasonable efforts to protect the personally identifiable data collected through its website, please be aware that there is always some risk involved when submitting data over the Internet.
