U.S. Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy

Effective date: March 31, 2024 

Washington Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy

The Washington My Health, My Data Act ("MHMDA") provides consumers residing in Washington and consumers whose consumer health data is collected in Washington (“Washington Consumers”, "you", or "your") with specific rights regarding their consumer health data.

This Washington State Consumer Health Data Privacy Policy supplements our Privacy Statement and applies solely to Consumer Health Data (as defined below) of Washington Consumers collected by Jazz Pharmaceuticals in connection with our products, services and websites both online and offline (collectively the “Services”). It explains how we collect, share and use your Consumer Health Data, and how you can exercise your privacy rights.

“Consumer Health Data” means personal information that is linked or reasonably linkable to a consumer and that identifies past, present or future physical or mental health status.

“Personal Information” is defined as information that identifies or is reasonably capable of being associated or linked, directly or indirectly, with a particular consumer. Personal Information includes, but is not limited to, data associated with a persistent unique identifier, such as a cookie ID, an IP address, a device identifier, or any other form of persistent unique identifier.

If you are a participant in a clinical study, clinical trial, or other health-related research, you should receive a separate privacy notice regarding the Personal Information we process for those purposes. That privacy notice — and not this Policy — governs our processing of such Personal Information.

1. Categories of Consumer Health Data We Collect

The Consumer Health Data we collect varies based on your relationship with us.

We may collect the following categories of Consumer Health Data.

  1. Biographical and demographic information to the extent related to physical or mental health status, diagnosis, disease or treatment (such as age, gender, ethnicity, disability status, sexual orientation).
