AbbVie maintains appropriate technical, administrative, and physical controls to reasonably safeguard any Personal Data collected through AbbVie Relationships.

We urge you to exercise caution when transmitting Personal Data over the Internet, especially your health-related information. We cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will not gain access to Personal Data about you; therefore, when submitting Personal Data to us, you must weigh both the benefits and the risks.
We will only keep Personal Data as long as necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes outlined in this Privacy Notice, except if otherwise required by applicable laws or legal orders. The criteria used to determine our retention periods include (i) the length of time we have an ongoing Abbvie Relationship with you; (ii) whether there is a legal or best practice retention obligation to which we are subject; and (iii) whether retention is needed in light of litigation or regulatory investigations.
