Amarin Pharma Informational Website
This website describes a security event that occurred at a vendor to Amarin Pharma Inc. (“Amarin”). The vendor experienced a security event involving a database it maintained containing certain personal information supplied by consumers who use or have expressed interest in Vascepa®. According to the vendor, the database did not contain Social Security numbers or personal financial account information; rather, it included individuals’ names, postal and email addresses, phone numbers and information about their use of certain products, including Vascepa® and dietary supplements. The database also contained information about certain copay transactions for Vascepa® that included completed transaction dates. According to the vendor, information in the database, which was used to administer Amarin’s copayment card program, was vulnerable to unauthorized access to and acquisition of its contents.
Upon learning through external reports on June 20, 2019, that the vendor database may have been subject to unauthorized access, Amarin promptly directed that the database be taken offline and secured from further unauthorized access. Amarin will not authorize bringing the database back online until appropriate safeguards are in place. In addition, Amarin has taken steps to ensure that any copay cards for Vascepa® accessed from the vendor-supported website remain active for continued use. Use of the copay card program has not been interrupted to ensure continued patient access to the medicine.
Amarin is committed to consumer privacy. The company takes its responsibility to safeguard personal information seriously and is notifying potentially impacted consumers for whom it has a valid mailing or email address. Amarin continues to work closely with its vendors to enhance the security of consumers’ health and personal information.
