Privacy Policy

Effective Date: September 1, 2019

We at Millendo have created this Privacy Notice to explain how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise process personal information in connection with operating our business.

Email us at if you have questions about our Privacy Notice.

This Privacy Notice describes the privacy practices of Millendo Therapeutics Inc. and its subsidiaries and affiliates, including but not limited to Millendo Therapeutics SAS and Millendo Therapeutics Ltd (collectively, “Millendo”). This Privacy Notice describes how we collect, use, disclose and otherwise process personal information, and explains the rights and choices available to individuals with respect to their information.

Millendo may provide additional privacy notices to individuals at the time we collect their data. For example, we provide a specific privacy notice to clinical trial participants that describe our privacy practices in connection with conducting clinical trials. This type of an “in-time” notice will govern how we may process the information you provide at that time.

Please note, this Privacy Notice does not apply to Millendo’s processing of employee or contractor data.

Legal basis for processing data

In this section, we identify the legal grounds on which we rely to process personal information.
In some cases, Millendo has a legitimate interest to process the personal information that we collect, such as to develop, administer and support our products and services; to operate, evaluate and improve our business; to facilitate and manage clinical trials and other patient advocacy and engagement programs; to promote scholarly research; to support our recruitment activities; or to facilitate a sale of assets or merger or acquisition.

In other cases, Millendo processes personal information to fulfill our contracts with our business partners, such as healthcare providers, partners that maintain patient and investigator registries, and drug distributors.

It may be also necessary for Millendo to process personal information to comply with our legal obligations, and to protect against, identify, investigate, and respond to fraud, illegal activity, and claims and other liabilities, including by enforcing the terms and conditions that govern the services we provide. Millendo’s processing of certain health and other associated information may also be necessary for reasons of public interest in the area of health, such as with respect to adverse event and product safety reporting, or for scientific or historical research purposes.

Millendo may also process personal information as specifically permitted by applicable legal requirements, such as laws and regulations that authorize Millendo to process personal information for purposes of clinical trials.

If Millendo relies on consent for the processing of your personal information, we will seek such consent at the time we collect your personal information. For more information on consent, please see the “Privacy Preferences, Rights and Choices” section of this Privacy Notice.

Privacy preferences, rights and choices

Individuals have certain rights and choices regarding Millendo’s processing of their personal information. We have appointed a Data Protection Officer (“DPO”) as a point of contact for exercising these rights. Please see the “How to Contact Us” section below for the DPO’s contact information.

Please note that if the exercise of these rights limits our ability to process personal information, we may be precluded from providing our products or services to individuals who exercise these rights, or from otherwise engaging with such individuals going forward.

We reserve the right to verify the identity of the individual in connection with any requests regarding personal information to help ensure that we provide the information to individuals to whom the information pertains, and allow only those individuals or their authorized representatives to exercise rights with respect to that information.

For information about the rights and choices users have with respect to cookies and online tracking, please see the “Cookies and Other Information Collected by Automated Means” section of this Privacy Notice.

To the extent provided by applicable law, you may withdraw any consent you previously provided to us, or object at any time on legitimate grounds, to the processing of your personal information. In some circumstances, withdrawing your consent to Millendo’s use or disclosure of your personal information will mean that Millendo will not be able to provide products or services to you or to otherwise engage with you.

However, we cannot guarantee that the measures we maintain will ensure the security of the personal information.
