How We Use The Information Collected
Clinical Trial Recruitment
When you submit the Pre-screener, submit other forms on the Website, or contact us via phone or email, we collect and store your personal data to help us determine if you are potentially eligible for the Study, provide you with information about the Study, or put you on a list for future contact (with your consent).
By submitting the Pre-screener, submitting forms, or contacting us, you consent to providing the information in those forms or communications to us.
When you have been identified as a qualified candidate for the Study, your personal data and contact information is shared with one of the clinical sites conducting the study (typically the closest one to you).
Clinical Trial Management
Access to documents, databases and folders containing personal data is restricted to appropriate staff on a “need to know” basis to meet stated legitimate business purposes.
De-identified reports and summaries of Website visitors and Pre-screener submissions are periodically prepared and provided to the Sponsor for conduct and review of Study progress. “De-identified” means these reports and summaries do not include any identifiable information (e.g., name, contact information) about you.
Business Administration and Legal Compliance
Under rare certain circumstances, we may be required by law enforcement, judicial authorities, or regulatory authorities to disclose certain personal information as part of audits, investigations or for litigation purposes. We may disclose personal data to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution, or other sale or transfer of the Sponsor company or parts of the company.
Personal Information that You Provide to Us
When you submit personal data through the Pre-screener, Contact Form, other forms on our Website, or by direct communication (e.g., email, phone, in-person), we will store your contact information and submitted personal data in order to respond to you regarding the subject of your inquiry. We may also take and store notes from communications with you in order to assess your eligibility for the Study. If you are eligible for the Study, we share your personal information with a matching research center to complete enrollment.

We use Facebook to advertise on social media. Facebook provides a snippet of code called a “pixel” that is used to track conversions from Facebook ads, optimize ads, build targeted audiences for future ads, and remarket to people who have taken some kind of action on our Website. Facebook ads are delivered on Facebook, Instagram, Messenger, and through their Audience Network. For information on what data the pixel collects, how its used and processed, please visit: https://pixel.facebook.com/about/privacy/
We use the online survey software JotForm to collect pre-screening responses. For their privacy policies, please visit:
Visitor Analytics is a simple website analytics service which measures the traffic on our website and website visitors' general details. We collect statistics like which pages visitors visit and when, where they are approximately located, where they land first or if they are coming from a specific referral, to make our website visitors' experience better.
As a website operator using Visitor Analytics, we process information about our visitors' device type and screen size/resolution, approximate location, browser, OS, page visits, bounce rate, conversions, conversion funnels, average sessions per visitor, average pages per session, average session duration, time spent on the website and preferably visited content on the website. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will not use the collected data to identify individual users or to match the data with additional information on an individual user.
Visitor Recordings is an additional feature to Visitor Analytics (described above) in the form of a simple website replay tool that records in statistics where our website visitors scrolled to and what they clicked on our website. We can see this information in playbacks and so called “heatmaps”. Collecting these statistics helps us to make the Website more user-friendly as well as to reproduce and fix technical errors.
Basically, as a website operator using Visitor Recordings, we are using a snippet of tracking code to collect data about our visitors’ journey on the Website, which subpages they visit, what they clicked on, where they moved their mouse cursor to and where they scrolled. All this data is pseudonymized and Visitor Analytics will not use the collected data to identify individual users or to match it with additional information on an individual user.
