Children Under the Age of 13
Our website is not intended for children under 13 years of age. No one under age 13 may provide any personal information to or on the Site. We do not knowingly collect personal information from children under 13. If you are under 13, do not use or provide any information on this Site or on or through any of its features, and do not provide us with any information about yourself, including your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, or any screen name or user name you may use. If we learn we have collected or received personal information from a child under 13, we will delete that information. If you believe we might have any information from or about a child under 13, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to explain what CliniMatch does with personally identifiable information that you provide to us, such as your name, address, age, and information relating to your medical conditions. We want you to know how your personally identifiable information will be protected, as well as under what circumstances we may share it, with whom, and for what purposes.
Reason for Collection of Your Information
Many of Clinimatch's services, such as browsing through our clinical trial database, do not require any form of registration or identification. You can freely visit many of our web pages without telling us who you are. However, some of our other services, such as inquiring for specific clinical trials, do require that you provide your personal details, including but not limited to your medical history, demographics, and other information. This allows us to process and/or send you information that you request about specific clinical trials. We may also use your email address to contact you and introduce new products or to otherwise share additional materials supporting our mission of helping patients find and access treatment options in development. We may also collect and use your personal information to further develop our products and services, to meet legal requirements, or to protect the rights and safety of our customers and third parties, as well as our own.
Personal Information Collected From You
The type of information collected from you will be based on the specific trial that you search and/or register for, as indicated at the time of your registration, and as you otherwise submit information to the Site. The information that we may ask you to provide may include your first and last name, your mailing address, your age, birth date, gender, e-mail address, and information about your medical history. CliniMatch limits the collection and processing of personal and medical information to what is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is to be used.
Consolidation of Information Collected From You
Many of our customers register for more than one trial or service, through the Site, by calling CliniMatch, or through a third party, such as their healthcare provider or a CliniMatch partner. When you register with us more than once, we may combine your personally identifiable information with anonymous computer information gathered (see below) and store it collectively. This helps us keep track of all of your preferences in one organized place, so that we can provide information to you based on a more informed review of your requests and medical conditions of interest.
CliniMatch takes all reasonable steps to ensure that personal data collected is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.
Collection of Anonymous Computer Information
Consent to Provide Your Information to CliniMatch
We request your consent to collect your personally identifiable information when you seek to register for a CliniMatch program or service. In doing so, we also explain, for that program or service, what you are registering to receive and how we plan to use your personal information. We also offer you the option of discontinuing your consent (“opting out” or “unsubscribing”) if you later decide that you no longer want to participate in that program or receive additional information from us. If we wish to use this information for purposes incompatible from those for which the data was initially collected, we will offer and effective way to opt out of the secondary use. Please note that if we share your personal information with a sponsor or manager of a clinical trial (a “Sponsor”) that Sponsor may continue to have access to your personal information even if you choose to no longer receive additional information from us.
Sharing Your Information With Third Parties
Security of Your Information
We use appropriate technical, administrative, and physical safeguards to protect data that pertains to you from loss, misuse, or alteration. In addition, we take steps to ensure that our safeguards take into account new known threats. Of course, no organization can guarantee the absolute security of personal information. You should keep in mind that Internet transmissions, particularly email transmissions, are never 100% secure or error-free. Accordingly, we also caution you to guard your own computer and password against unauthorized access by others.
Transfer of Your Information
At times CliniMatch may be required to transfer and/or store personal information in countries other than the country where the information was provided. In particular, personal information of EU users may be stored in servers outside of the EU. In these cases we maintain compliance with applicable privacy laws. We protect personal information entrusted to us no matter what country it is stored in or transferred to and have appropriate procedures in place to help ensure the security of your personal information.
Our privacy practices are periodically reviewed by our auditors to verify compliance with this Privacy Statement.
