This policy describes how Seattle Genetics, Inc. (Seattle Genetics) uses personally identifiable information in connection with the websites (including mobile websites) where the policy is located. Whether you are looking for health information for yourself, or a healthcare provider searching for information to refine your expertise in meeting the needs of your patients, this Privacy Policy will inform you of:


CONSENT TO PROCESSING IN THE UNITED STATES AND ELSEWHERE. This site is owned and operated by Seattle Genetics located in the United States and is directed towards users who reside in the United States. The information you provide will be accessible to third parties in other countries. Furthermore, while is not our intent to gather personally identifiable information from individuals residing outside the United States, if you are visiting this site from a country other than the United States your communication with us will necessarily result in the transfer of information across international boundaries. By using this site, you consent to Seattle Genetics’ collection and use of your information as outlined in this policy, including the collection, transfer, storage and processing of your information in the United States and in any country to which we may transfer your information in the course of our business operations. You further recognize that the laws of the United States may not provide the same level of protection as the laws in the country where you reside.


Seattle Genetics may need to update this Privacy Policy from time to time. If so, Seattle Genetics will post an updated version on its website. Seattle Genetics encourages you to review this Privacy Policy regularly for any changes. Any changes will be effective immediately upon the posting of the revised Privacy Policy and your continued use of this website or our interactive features will be subject to the then-current Privacy Policy.


You can generally visit our website without revealing any personally identifiable information about yourself. However, to access certain options and services we may ask you to provide personally identifiable information, and you understand and agree that any information that you provide is being provided voluntarily. Information we may request includes your contact information (name, address, phone number, email address), age, gender or username/password. We may also ask for information about your medical conditions or related background or, if you apply for a job, we might ask for information about your past employment. If you are a healthcare provider, we may also ask for information relating to your specialty and professional affiliations

Like many companies, we also use common online tracking tools to collect information. These tools are described in the How We Collect Information section. Information we collect might include the website browser or type of mobile device you are using, whether you have previously visited our website, IP addresses, ISP information, or the sites from which you arrived or to which you leave after you visit us. To learn about how to control these tools, please read the Your Choices section.


We (along with our third party partners engaged to provide marketing and advertising on our behalf) collect personally identifiable information about you if you voluntarily provide it to us. This includes, for example, during website registration, online job applications, through surveys we might offer, or if you send us an email, fax, or call us. We also collect information on our websites passively using the tools described in this policy.

We use common tracking tools to operate our websites, other interactive programs and to otherwise provide you with information about us and our products and services. The tools we use might include cookies, GIF files, or web beacons. We might engage third parties to assist us with our passive tracking activities. These could include vendors who help us deliver information to you, or vendors that help us operate our websites or other interactive programs. You can control these tools by following the instructions in the Your Choices section. Please note, however, that our website does not currently respond to any “do-not-track” signals that may be transmitted by some web browsers to websites with which the browser communicates.

From time to time, we might obtain information about you from our third party business partners. This might include, for example, an updated address if you had requested that we provide you with information.


We use the information you provide to us for our legitimate business purposes, including to respond to your requests and to provide you with information you might have requested. We will also use information to improve our products and services, or to customize your interaction with us, including the type of content of ours that you see online or receive from us. We use information to analyze customer interests as well, including analyzing website trends, and to better understand your needs and how we can improve our websites and products. We may combine information about you with information we have received from third party sources. We will also use information for security purposes, such as to protect our website or our company. We will also use your information to communicate with you about our relationship, and where permitted by law, to send you information about ourselves, our products or services and other information we believe you may find of interest.


We may provide information to any affiliate entity of Seattle Genetics, partner entities, and vendors we may engage to assist us. For example, we may provide your personally identifiable information to an organization in order for them to help us complete a service (e.g., send out information you have requested), or to provide marketing materials on our behalf. We will also disclose information if we reasonably believe we are required to do so by law, regulation or other government authority (such as reporting safety information to the Food and Drug Administration). We will also disclose information if we believe it is necessary to protect our company or our website visitors. We may transfer your personally identifiable information to a successor entity upon a merger, consolidation or other corporate reorganization in which Seattle Genetics participates or to a purchaser of all or substantially all of Seattle Genetics' assets. Such successor entity shall be bound by the terms and conditions of this Privacy Policy.


Our sites are not created for minors (in most states, individuals under the age of 18) and we do not believe that children would be interested in our websites or other interactive programs. We do not knowingly collect information online from children. If you are a parent or guardian and think we have information about children under 13, in keeping with the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, please email us at


Some of our websites or interactive features may contain links to third party websites or services that are not under our control or ownership. Such links do not constitute an endorsement of those third parties or the content displayed therein and you agree that Seattle Genetics is not responsible for the content of such websites. We are not responsible for how these sites operate or treat your information. You acknowledge that we provide these links to you only as a convenience, and you understand that your information will be used as described by the third parties in their privacy policies.


Seattle Genetics and its third party providers may employ industry-standard procedural and technological security measures. Such measures are reasonably designed to protect your personally identifiable information and are commensurate to the type of information we maintain. No website is completely secure, however, and we cannot guarantee the safety of your information online. You should thus use caution when submitting information online or using interactive programs.


You may elect not to provide us with information we request. Please note that if you do not provide us with all requested information, we may not be able to fulfill your request or deliver certain products or features to you. You also have a choice about your cookie settings, which you can modify by using the tools in your browser. If you set your browser to reject cookies, however, certain parts of our website or our interactive programs may not function. You may opt-out of receiving marketing emails from us by following the instructions included in the emails we send. If you chose to provide us with your information, you may always update it.

If you have other questions, please call us at 425-527-4000 or email to or write to us at: Seattle Genetics, Inc., 21823 - 30th Drive S.E., Bothell, WA 98021.
