We are not responsible for, nor can we guarantee the protection of, any personal information you disclose in a communication submitted to such services or features for posting or contained in an email or other communication submitted to us for such posting, and thus, if you disclose personal information in any such material, you do so at your own risk.

Notice to California Residents – Your California Privacy Rights
This section supplements the description of our information collection and sharing practices elsewhere in this Privacy Notice to provide certain disclosures to California residents whose personal information Teva processes pursuant to the California Consumer Privacy Act (“CCPA”). Please note that these disclosures do not apply to information that is not processed under the CCPA.
During the preceding 12 months, Teva has collected, used, and shared the categories of personal information described above in this Privacy Notice. For example, depending on the Services you use, this may include identifiers (eg, email addresses, IP addresses, and mobile device identifiers), health information, demographic information, geolocation information, and internet or other electronic network activity information. This may also include inferences we draw from the other information we collect. See the “The Data We Collect,” “Surveys,” “Location Services” and other relevant sections of this Privacy Notice for more details.
Under the CCPA, California residents may have the request that a business that collects consumers’ personal information give consumers additional transparency and access to the specific pieces of personal information that the business has collected about the consumer. California residents also have the right to submit a request for deletion of information under certain circumstances. Please note that these rights are not absolute. For example, we may not delete information we are required to retain for regulatory reasons, certain internal business purposes, or where otherwise provided for by law. In addition, we will not respond to a request if we cannot verify you as the requestor.
Once we receive your request, we may verify it by requesting information sufficient to confirm your identity, including by asking you for additional information. If you would like to use an agent registered with the California Secretary of State to exercise your rights, we may request evidence that you have provided such agent with power of attorney or that the agent otherwise has valid written authority to submit requests to exercise rights on your behalf.
Consistent with California law, if you choose to exercise your rights, we will not charge you different prices or provide different quality of services unless those differences are related to your information or otherwise permitted by law. Please submit your request by sending an email to USPrivacy@tevapharm.com or by telephone at 1-800-545-8800.
