Data privacy policy - Safety/Medical reporting




Teoxane SA is committed to respecting your privacy. When an incident or risk of an incident concerning one of TEOXANE SA's products is reported, Teoxane SA will collect certain information that will allow you to be identified ("Personal Data").

Teoxane SA is "Controller" for personal data collected in connection with the declaration of an incident or risk of incident concerning one of its products. This means that Teoxane SA is responsible for decisions concerning the collection and use of personal data. It also means that Teoxane SA is responsible for answering your questions and requests in relation to the personal data that Teoxane SA holds about you.

This information note ("Information Note") explains how Teoxane SA will process your personal data in the event of an incident or risk of an incident. It also explains your rights in relation to your personal data.



This information concerns you if you:
- are identified in a notification as having presented an incident or risk of incident; or
- make a notification of an incident or risk of incident on behalf of someone else (and you provide Teoxane SA with your identity when making this report).

By this Information Note, Teoxane SA expressly informs you that in the event that you yourself carry out the notification of the adverse health event to which you have been exposed, the secrecy of your identity cannot be preserved by Teoxane SA. However, the lifting of secrecy will be strictly limited to what is necessary to enable Teoxane SA to meet its obligations in terms of health surveillance and for a period strictly limited to what is necessary to meet the said obligations.



When you notify an incident or risk of an incident, Teoxane SA processes your full identity (surname, first name) as well as your contact details.

For each case of health surveillance that Teoxane SA receives, Teoxane SA collects data relating to the patient or the person who presented the incident or the risk of an incident: initials or identification number (code), descriptive information (age, year or date of birth, sex, weight, height), health data such as treatments administered, results of examinations, nature of incidents or risks of incidents, personal or family history, diseases or associated events, risk factors, information relating to ancestry and descent, data relating to professional life, lifestyle habits and behaviour.  

Only adequate, relevant and necessary data in relation to the analysis of the case of health surveillance are collected.



Teoxane SA collects personal data directly from you when you yourself report an incident or risk of an incident to Teoxane SA. This may also be done through incident or risk of incident reporting forms, questionnaires, interviews or observations that Teoxane SA may make about you or your state of health after an incident or risk of incident has been reported to it.

Teoxane SA may also collect personal data about you indirectly from third parties who report to Teoxane SA an incident or risk of an incident. This may include your physician or other healthcare professionals, a distributor of Teoxane SA products, another entity within the group to which Teoxane SA belongs (when they receive information about incidents or risks of incidents) or any other person (such as a family member or friend) who reports an incident or risk of incident on your behalf.

Teoxane SA is also required to collect incidents or risks of incidents published in the literature or which may be mentioned on a website or online application (blog, discussion forum, commentary on a mobile application, etc.) which are the responsibility of Teoxane SA.




In the table below, Teoxane SA presents:

  • the purposes for which Teoxane SA collects and uses your personal data;

In addition, Teoxane SA limits access to your personal data to its employees and service providers, and only those who have a legitimate need to know them by virtue of their work or the services provided have access to them.

Teoxane SA has put in place procedures to act in the event of alleged violations of personal data and Teoxane SA will inform you and the relevant regulatory authorities, should such a case arise, in accordance with applicable legal requirements.




Teoxane SA keeps your personal data for as long as necessary to achieve the purpose for which it was collected, including to meet legal provisions or health surveillance reporting requirements. Thus, Teoxane SA informs you that your personal data will be kept on a dedicated database, on an active basis, for the duration of the marketing of the product concerned.

In order to assess the appropriate storage period for personal data, Teoxane SA takes into consideration the quantity, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm caused by the unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which Teoxane SA uses your personal data, and Teoxane SA tries to determine whether it can achieve these purposes by other means while complying with the relevant legal provisions.

In addition, Teoxane SA will archive your personal data in connection with incidents or risks of incidents related to its products, in intermediate archiving, for a period of fifteen (15) years after the last product is placed on the market, unless there is a specific legal obligation for Teoxane SA to archive your personal data for a longer period of time.

  • Request correction of the personal data that Teoxane SA holds about you. This enables you to rectify incomplete or inaccurate personal data concerning you that is in the possession of Teoxane SA.

Teoxane SA will immediately examine any request you make and will reply to you within one month of your request. Teoxane SA may extend this period by a further two months where this is necessary to enable Teoxane SA to respond properly to the request (for example if the request is complicated and Teoxane SA needs more time) but Teoxane SA will inform you of the reasons for the delay.

If Teoxane SA decides not to proceed with the request, Teoxane SA will inform you of the reasons for its decision.
