2. Personal Information

Reckitt Benckiser will collect certain personal information that you provide to us voluntarily. For example, and not by limitation, we may collect personal information when you fill out a questionnaire; sign up for a survey or otherwise interact with us. Such information may include, but may not be limited to, your name, address and email address. In addition to providing you with the service or information you request on our Site, your PI may also be used to help us track the way you use our Site and our products.

Healthcare providers who register to use services provided on this Site may need to furnish PI about another individual (e.g., a patient). We will use the PI you submit to provide the services you request consistent with this Privacy Policy. If you are a healthcare provider and you disclose PI to us, you and you alone bear the sole obligation and responsibility of obtaining any patient consents and authorizations for such disclosures that may be required under federal and state law.

It is not possible for us to list every lawful use that we might make of Personal Information, so the Disclosures described above are general, non-exclusive, illustrations. Subject to applicable law, all rights to make all lawful uses of PI worldwide are reserved.

a.Future Communications from Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc.

When you provide Personal Information to us, we may ask if you want to receive future communication from us, such as newsletters, email or other information. You can choose not to receive this communication, if you wish, and you may opt-out by clicking on the link on the bottom of an email you received or by clicking here.

b.What Reckitt Benckiser Pharmaceuticals Inc. Tends to do With Personal Information Collected

We may combine the information you provide with information that we collect separately, including information you have provided to other organizations as well as public information (USPS, Yellow Pages, etc.). All of this will help us, for instance, better design our products, Sites and advertisements. In order to do this, we may also share your information with companies who carry out work for us. Information may be shared with service providers who provide services for or administer activities on behalf of Reckitt Benckiser. Information you submit to one or more of the Reckitt Benckiser brands may be shared with another of the Reckitt Benckiser brands. Your Personal Information may also be shared with service providers who warehouse product, perform order fulfillment or provide hosting services. These companies have agreed to only use your information in the way we tell them and to have procedures in place to protect the information.

We will share your Personal Information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Policy. We do not sell your Personal Information to third parties.

In the event Reckitt Benckiser, or its assets, is bought or sold, Personal Information may be included among the transferred business assets. In this case, a prominent notice on our Site of any change in ownership or uses of your Personal Information, as well as any choices you may have regarding your Personal Information will be provided.

Reckitt Benckiser may disclose specific Personal Information if it determines that such disclosure is necessary to comply with the law, such as to comply with a subpoena or to protect the safety of the public. When we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, protect your safety or the safety of others, or respond to a government request. This includes exchanging information with other companies and organizations for fraud protection and credit risk reduction.

If we intend to share your information with an unaffiliated company, other than as set out above, we will contact you first and give you the opportunity to remove your information from our database.

3. Children's Privacy

This Site is not intended to be used by anyone under the age of 18 and we do not want to collect information from anyone under 18. If a child's parent or a guardian believes their child may have provided PI to us, write us at our Legal Notices Address and we will use commercially reasonable efforts to delete that PI, subject to applicable law and this Privacy Policy.

4. Linked Sites

The Reckitt Benckiser Site(s) may contain links to other websites. The Privacy Policies at these other websites may be different from this one.

5. Personal Information Collected Automatically

Below are examples of types of PI we tend to collect from other sources or, automatically, from you. Although we use the term "Personal Information," in fact, some of the information might not be PI and our use of the term does not make it PI. Examples of this type of information include the type of internet browser you are using, the type of computer operating system you are using, and the domain name of the website from which you linked to our Site or advertisement. We use this information for the purposes of better understanding our customer's interests and to help improve our business and Sites. When you view one of our Sites or advertisements, we may store some information on your computer. For example, this information may be in the form of a "cookie" or similar file that will allow us to tailor a Site or advertisement to better match your interests and preferences. We may link the information we store in cookies to any Personal Information you submit while on our Site.

Much data collected by Site cookies and other tracking technologies is not PI. Some might be "aggregate data” like demographic data or data that might start out as PI but is then “de-identified” in an attempt to avoid identifying you. We reserve the right to collect and disclose aggregate data and to create it from PI. Nothing in this Privacy Policy waives our rights, including but not limited to U.S. Constitutional First Amendment rights, to make all lawful uses of aggregate data.

We use both session cookies and persistent cookies on this Site. A session cookie expires when you close your browser. A persistent cookie remains on your hard drive for an extended period of time.

With most internet browsers, you can erase cookies from your computer hard drive, block all cookies, or receive a warning before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. Please note that removing or blocking cookies may interfere with your full use of our Site. You may need to download applications and readjust your security settings to access some or all of the information on one or more of the Reckitt Benckiser Site(s).

The use of cookies by our tracking utility company and service providers are covered by our privacy policy. We do not have access or control over these cookies. Our tracking utility company and service providers use session cookies.

We partner with a third-party ad network to either display advertising on our Site or to manage our advertising on other websites. Our ad network partner uses cookies and web beacons to collect non-personal information about your activities on this Site and other websites to provide you targeted advertising based upon your interests. If you wish to not have this information used for the purpose of serving you targeted ads, you may opt-out by clicking here. Please note this does not opt you out of being served advertising. You will continue to receive non-sponsored ads.

6. How Your Information is Protected

Reckitt Benckiser uses industry standard security techniques to help protect against the loss, misuse or alteration of information collected from you at a Reckitt Benckiser Site. When you transmit Personal Information, that information is stored on servers that Reckitt Benckiser has attempted to secure from unauthorized access or intrusion. Of course, the Reckitt Benckiser Sites cannot be and are not responsible for unauthorized access to information by hackers who have obtained such access through illegal measures.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your Personal Information, we cannot guarantee the security of the Personal Information you transmit to our Site; any transmission is at your own risk.

While we cannot guarantee that loss, misuse or alteration to data will not occur, once we have received your information, we will make reasonable efforts to prevent such occurrences.

8. How You Can Update, Change or Delete Your Information

If at any time you want to update, change or delete your information, you may log in to the Site where you have your information and make those changes on your profile page. If you do not want your PI collected, please do not submit it to us. If you have received an email and you would like to opt-out of receiving future emails, please click on the opt-out link at the bottom of that email or please click here to opt-out.

Please note that we do not maintain all PI in a form that can be accessed or updated by you and some PI may not be changed (e.g., payment records). Accordingly and subject to applicable law, we will determine what may be accessed and how; we may also keep a record of changes (including deletions) and disclose them for lawful purposes.

We keep PI for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services and reserve the right to retain it to the full extent not prohibited by law (e.g., for the length of a statute of limitations). We may discard PI in our discretion, so you should retain your own records. Often it is not feasible or advisable actually to discard PI (such as commingled PI), so we reserve the right to retain and treat it as inactive or discarded (such as removing traditional "pointers" to it).

You may make a request for us to update eligible PI by writing to us at our Legal Notice Address. If applicable law requires us to accept requests by other means, use our address to obtain information about the other means. We will honor requests if required by law or if we determine in our sole discretion to do so. We may comply with qualified requests by supplying a copy or access to the relevant PI within a reasonable time, but no less time than is needed by us or others for processing or altering databases in the ordinary course of business. If we have a duty to require third-parties to delete or cease using PI, we may satisfy it by sending them notice to do so without further action (except as expressly required by law).

Indication

SUBOXONE® (buprenorphine and naloxone) Sublingual Film (CIII) is a prescription medicine indicated for treatment of opioid dependence and should be used as part of a complete treatment plan to include counseling and psychosocial support.

Treatment should be initiated under the direction of physicians qualified under the Drug Addiction Treatment Act.

Important Safety Information

Do not take SUBOXONE® (buprenorphine and naloxone) Sublingual Film (CIII) if you are allergic to buprenorphine or naloxone as serious negative effects, including anaphylactic shock, have been reported.

SUBOXONE Sublingual Film can be abused in a manner similar to other opioids, legal or illicit.

SUBOXONE Sublingual Film contains buprenorphine, an opioid that can cause physical dependence with chronic use. Physical dependence is not the same as addiction. Your doctor can tell you more about the difference between physical dependence and drug addiction. Do not stop taking SUBOXONE Sublingual Film suddenly without talking to your doctor. You could become sick with uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms because your body has become used to this medicine.

SUBOXONE Sublingual Film can cause serious life-threatening breathing problems, overdose and death, particularly when taken by the intravenous (IV) route in combination with benzodiazepines or other medications that act on the nervous system (ie, sedatives, tranquilizers, or alcohol). It is extremely dangerous to take nonprescribed benzodiazepines or other medications that act on the nervous system while taking SUBOXONE Sublingual Film.

You should not drink alcohol while taking SUBOXONE Sublingual Film, as this can lead to loss of consciousness or even death.

Death has been reported in those who are not opioid dependent.

Your doctor may monitor liver function before and during treatment.

SUBOXONE Sublingual Film is not recommended in patients with severe hepatic impairment and may not be appropriate for patients with moderate hepatic impairment. However, SUBOXONE Sublingual Film may be used with caution for maintenance treatment in patients with moderate hepatic impairment who have initiated treatment on a buprenorphine product without naloxone.

Keep SUBOXONE Sublingual Film out of the sight and reach of children. Accidental or deliberate ingestion of SUBOXONE Sublingual Film by a child can cause severe breathing problems and death.

Do not take SUBOXONE Sublingual Film before the effects of other opioids (eg, heroin, hydrocodone, methadone, morphine, oxycodone) have subsided as you may experience withdrawal symptoms.

Injecting SUBOXONE may cause serious withdrawal symptoms such as pain, cramps, vomiting, diarrhea, anxiety, sleep problems, and cravings.

Before taking SUBOXONE Sublingual Film, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. If you are pregnant or become pregnant while taking SUBOXONE Sublingual Film, alert your doctor immediately and you should report it using the contact information provided below.*

Neonatal withdrawal has been reported following the use of buprenorphine by the mother during pregnancy.

Before taking SUBOXONE Sublingual Film, talk to your doctor if you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed your baby. SUBOXONE can pass into your breast milk. You and your doctor should consider the development and health benefits of breastfeeding along with your clinical need for SUBOXONE Sublingual Film and should also consider any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from the drug or from the underlying maternal condition.

Do not drive, operate heavy machinery, or perform any other dangerous activities until you know how SUBOXONE Sublingual Film affects you. Buprenorphine in SUBOXONE Sublingual Film can cause drowsiness and slow reaction times during dose-adjustment periods.

Common side effects of SUBOXONE Sublingual Film include nausea, vomiting, drug withdrawal syndrome, headache, sweating, numb mouth, constipation, painful tongue, redness of the mouth, intoxication (feeling lightheaded or drunk), disturbance in attention, irregular heartbeat, decrease in sleep, blurred vision, back pain, fainting, dizziness, and sleepiness.

This is not a complete list of potential adverse events associated with SUBOXONE Sublingual Film. Please see full Prescribing Information for a complete list.

*To report negative side effects associated with taking SUBOXONE Sublingual Film, please call 1-877-782-6966. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch or call 1-800-FDA-1088.
