However, in order to take advantage of certain features available through this site, it may be necessary to provide personal information. We may ask for some personal information when you send us a comment or question, or when you request information through our site.

In accordance with applicable law, Clovis’ legal grounds for processing your personal information are that the processing is:
- necessary for our legitimate interest (that is to operate the website, ensure its security and respond to your queries);
- necessary in order to comply with our legal obligations; or
- carried out with your consent or at your direction, to provide you with the information and services that you request, which you will be free to revoke, although in that event it may be necessary to retain some information to comply with our legal obligations or protect our rights and interests.
If you do not provide certain information to us, we may, in some circumstances, be unable to comply with our obligations or provide you with the services that you request. We will tell you about the implications of not providing certain information.
Clovis takes its responsibility to keep your information private very seriously. Accordingly, Clovis shares your personal information only under limited circumstances. We may share your personal information with the following third parties:
