To better protect that privacy, Grifols USA, LLC ("Grifols") provides this notice to explain our online information practices and the choices you can make about the way your information is collected and used. This Privacy Notice applies only to the use and collection of data collected by this website or application, and does not apply to any other data collected by Grifols or its affiliates, online or offline. This website or application and its contents are designed to comply with U.S. laws and regulations and is intended for U.S. residents 18 years of age and older.

As used in this Privacy Notice, "we," "our," or "us" includes Grifols, and its related companies and affiliates, as well as any third-party vendors we hire to assist in the administration of the website or application. These vendors are required to maintain the confidentiality of the user information to which they become privy in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Notice and to otherwise abide by the terms of this Privacy Notice.

Collection, Use and Sharing of Your Information

We collect two basic types of information – personally-identifiable information and non- personally-identifiable information – and we may use personal and anonymous information to create a third type of information, aggregated statistical information. You can visit our website and find out about Grifols' products and services without giving us any personally-identifiable information about you. When you visit our website or application, we do not collect any personally identifiable information without your consent. We collect and store information from you that you voluntarily choose to give us or enter on our website or application, including but not limited to "personally-identifiable information" such as your name, address, e-mail address, health  information, etc. If you do not want Grifols to collect your personally-identifiable information, please do not provide it to us.

We may combine your personally-identifiable information provided by you with personally-identifiable information provided in other online or offline records held by us, and/or with records provided by third parties. We may also combine your personally-identifiable information with different types of non-personally-identifiable information discussed in this policy.

Our primary purpose in collecting and processing such information is to provide you with services that you request or to personalize product or service information for you. We may also use your personally-identifiable information to provide you with additional information about our products and services, to provide you with advertising based on your activity on our websites and applications and third-party websites and applications, to optimize or improve our products, services and operations, to detect, investigate and prevent activities that may violate our policies or be illegal, or for technical support, troubleshooting or account administration purposes. We may also share your personally-identifiable information with our agents, contractors, or business partners in order that they may perform services for us.

We may also collect and use non-personally-identifiable information from website visitors, which includes information that does not directly or indirectly identify, and cannot reasonably be used to identify, an individual visitor. This can be technical information, such as your device type or internet browser version, or it can be demographic information, such as your age, gender or interests. Non-personally-identifiable information does NOT identify you personally.

We will share your personally-identifiable information with third parties only in the ways that are described in this Privacy Notice. We do not sell your personal information to third parties.

We do conduct research or analysis on users' demographics, interests and behaviors based upon information provided to us during use of our website and application and we may combine your information with information collected from other individuals to produce anonymous, aggregated statistical information. Aggregated data does not include personally-identifiable information. We use this demographic information, such as the percentage of visitors within certain age brackets, to improve the content of our website or application. We also may share this anonymous, aggregated information, which does not include personally-identifiable information, with third parties.

Public and Social Media Forums

You should also be aware that any communication you submit or that may be posted to any publicly-viewable interactive feature such as a blog, community forum or testimonial page is a public communication and may be viewed by the general public.

GAMUNEX®-C (immune globulin injection [human], 10% caprylate/chromatography purified) is approved to treat primary humoral immunodeficiency disease (PIDD) in patients 2 years of age and older. If you have PIDD, you may take GAMUNEX-C under the skin (subcutaneously) or in a vein (intravenously). GAMUNEX-C is also approved to treat idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP) in adults and children and chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (CIDP) in adults. If you have ITP or CIDP, you may only take GAMUNEX-C intravenously. 

If you take GAMUNEX-C or a similar immune globulin product, you could experience a serious and life-threatening blood clot (thromboembolism), which may include pain and/or swelling of an arm or leg with warmth over the affected area, discoloration of an arm or leg, unexplained shortness of breath, chest pain or discomfort that worsens on deep breathing, unexplained rapid pulse, numbness, or weakness on one side of the body. You are more likely to develop a blood clot if you have a history of hardening of the arteries (atherosclerosis), stroke, heart attack, or heart failure (low volume of blood pumped by the heart). You may also be more likely to get a blood clot if you are elderly, if you have a blood clotting disorder, if you are inactive for long periods of time (such as long bed rest), if you use estrogens, or if you have thickening of your blood. For patients at risk, GAMUNEX-C should be administered at the lowest dose and slowest infusion rate that is practical. However, blood clots may occur in the absence of any of the known risk factors. Patients should be well hydrated by drinking enough water before GAMUNEX-C is administered. Tell your doctor immediately if your medical history is similar to what is described here, and especially if you start having any of these symptoms while taking GAMUNEX-C.

If you take GAMUNEX-C or a similar immune globulin product intravenously, you could experience serious kidney disease and death. You may have symptoms of decreased urination, sudden weight gain, swelling in your legs (edema), or shortness of breath. You are more likely to develop serious kidney disease if you already have a kidney problem, have Type II diabetes mellitus, or are older than 65. You are more likely to develop serious kidney disease if you are dehydrated, have a blood infection (sepsis), have high protein content in your blood, or if you are receiving other medicines that are harmful to your kidneys. Tell your doctor immediately if your medical history is similar to what is described here, and especially if you start having any of these symptoms while taking GAMUNEX-C.

You are more likely to develop serious kidney disease if you take an intravenous immune globulin product that contains sugar (sucrose).  GAMUNEX-C does not contain sugar. If your situation makes you more likely to experience serious kidney disease, you should take GAMUNEX-C at the lowest concentration available and the slowest infusion rate that is practical.

Do not take GAMUNEX-C if you have an allergy to immune globulin. Tell your doctor if you have had a serious reaction to other medicines that contain human immune globulin. Also tell your doctor if you have immunoglobulin A (IgA) deficiency. If you have a serious reaction while taking GAMUNEX-C, stop taking it immediately and tell your doctor.

Periodic monitoring of kidney function and urine output is particularly important in patients more likely to experience severe kidney disease.

You could experience other serious and life-threatening problems due to immune globulin. You could get aseptic meningitis (a type of brain inflammation with symptoms of severe headache, stiff neck, fatigue, fever, sensitivity to light, painful eye movements, nausea, and vomiting), a blood problem called hemolytic anemia (common symptoms include increased heart rate, fatigue, yellow skin or eyes, and dark-colored urine), and/or a lung problem called transfusion-related acute lung injury (commonly referred to as TRALI). TRALI is a condition where you build up fluid in the lungs (called pulmonary edema) that is not the result of heart failure.

If you have higher than normal body fluid volumes or if you have a condition where increasing body fluid volume may be a concern, a higher dose, such as 1g/kg for 1-2 days, is not recommended.

Because GAMUNEX-C is made from human blood, it may carry a risk of transmitting infectious agents such as viruses, the variant Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (vCJD) agent, and, theoretically, the Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) agent.

You may not take GAMUNEX-C subcutaneously if you have ITP. If you have ITP and take GAMUNEX-C subcutaneously, you could experience a very serious and life-threatening black and blue wound (hematoma, which is a pocket of blood within a tissue).

After you take GAMUNEX-C, your blood antibody levels may rise, which could cause some blood antibody tests to give false results.

The most common side effects in a clinical study with PIDD patients who got subcutaneous injections of GAMUNEX-C were infusion-site reactions such as redness, swelling, and itching; extreme tiredness; pain in the region of the head or neck; a runny nose, nasal congestion, sneezing, cough, and sputum production; joint pain; loose stools; a sensation of unease and discomfort in the upper stomach; swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses; inflammation of the airways that carry air to your lungs; a feeling of unhappiness, sadness, melancholy, gloom, hopelessness, or low spirits; red rash or bumps, itchy, swollen, and tender skin with or without blisters or a burning feeling; a severe throbbing pain or a pulsing sensation, usually on just one side of the head; muscle pain; familiar infectious diseases such as the common cold or flu; and raised body temperature or fever. In clinical studies with PIDD patients who got GAMUNEX-C intravenously, the most common side effects were cough; irritation and inflammation of the mucous membrane inside the nose; sore throat caused by inflammation of the back of the throat; pain in the region of the head or neck; a condition in which your airways narrow and swell and produce extra mucus; a sensation of unease and discomfort in the upper stomach; raised body temperature or fever; loose stools; and swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. In a clinical study with CIDP patients who got GAMUNEX-C intravenously, the most common side effects were pain in the region of the head or neck; raised body temperature or fever; abnormally high blood pressure; feelings of coldness accompanied by shivering; a noticeable change in the texture or color of your skin such as your skin becoming scaly, bumpy, itchy, or otherwise irritated; a sensation of unease and discomfort in the upper stomach; joint pain; and abnormal physical weakness or lack of energy. In clinical trials with ITP patients who got GAMUNEX-C intravenously, the most common side effects were pain in the region of the head or neck; a discoloration of the skin resulting from bleeding underneath, typically caused by bruising; vomiting, fever, nausea, rash, abdominal pain, back pain, and a pain or an uncomfortable feeling in the upper middle part of your stomach.

The most serious side effects in clinical studies were a blood clot to the lung (pulmonary embolism) in 1 patient with a history of this condition (in CIDP), a flare-up of an existing type of anemia (autoimmune pure red cell aplasia) in 1 patient (in PIDD), and heart inflammation (myocarditis) in 1 patient (in ITP).
