WEBSITE PRIVACY POLICY

This Privacy Policy applies to the SPI2 Study Website developed and maintained by PAREXEL International. You are responsible for carefully reading this Privacy Policy in its entirety. This Privacy Policy describes the information we collect about you and how we keep your personal information safe and confidential.

PAREXEL understands that privacy is important to you. The information that we collect about you from the SPI2 Study Website will be maintained and used in accordance with this Privacy Policy and applicable laws, rules and regulations.

By providing us with your Personally Identifiable Information (as defined below), including Personal Health Information (as defined below), you consent to the collection and use of any information you provide in accordance with the above purposes and this Privacy Policy.

Reference to “PAREXEL” means PAREXEL International Corporation, including any company that PAREXEL International Corporation controls (for example, a subsidiary of PAREXEL International Corporation). PAREXEL may share information among its subsidiaries, and such information shall be protected in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Policy.

INFORMATION WE COLLECT
If you use our Website without completing a survey, the only information we collect will be information through the use of Cookies (as defined below) or Web Logs (as defined below) or IP Address (as defined below).

PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION
Personally Identifiable Information that will be collected via a survey is information that can be traced back to an individual. Personal Health Information is a combination of your Personally Identifiable Information with known health characteristics. For example, if you indicated that you have a certain disease or condition, when that information is combined with your name, it becomes Personal Health Information. Examples of Personally Identifiable Information include your name, home address, telephone number, email address, Social Security number, date of birth, and any other information that is linked to this identifying information.  

For the SPI2 Study Website, we will only collect Personally Identifiable Information including Personal Health Information after asking you for your consent.

We will use the Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information that you provide to determine if you may be eligible for study participation. You are responsible for ensuring the accuracy of the Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information you submit to PAREXEL. Inaccurate information will affect our ability to properly determine if you may qualify to participate in the SPI2 Study.

While you may view some of the SPI2 Study Website without providing Personally Identifiable Information, this information will be required to be considered for participation in the clinical research study.

COOKIES
We collect basic data about your use of our Website through the use of Cookies. A Cookie is a small piece of information that our server sends to your web browser when you access the SPI2 Study Website. Every computer that accesses the SPI2 Study Website is assigned a different Cookie by PAREXEL. Cookies are capable of storing many types of data. Cookies may be used to help us analyze usage of the SPI2 Study Website or to restrict underage use of the website. We do not link basic data from Cookies to Personally Identifiable Information without your permission and we do not use Cookies to collect or store Personal Health Information about you.

Most browser software can be set to reject all Cookies. Note, however, that some portions of the SPI2 Study Website may not work properly if you reject Cookies.

IP ADDRESSES
We may also receive IP addresses in the normal course of the operation of our website. An IP address is a number assigned to you by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet. Although we do receive IP addresses, we do not use them to identify you personally or disclose them to others.

WEB LOGS
PAREXEL uses standard Web Logs that record basic data about your visit to the SPI2 Study Website, such as the date and time of the visit, the pages of the SPI2 Study Website viewed during the visit, and the domain name of your Internet Service Provider.

We do not normally seek to identify individuals from Web Logs. However, we may use Web Logs to identify an individual whom we suspect tried to damage the SPI2 Study Website or use it in an unauthorized way. We may share our Web Logs with law enforcement agencies if we believe there has been a violation of computer security or related laws. In addition, we may share our Web Logs (which do not contain any Personally Identifiable Information) with our partners to assist them in better designing their websites for clinical research studies.

GOOGLE ANALYTICS
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”) which uses cookies to help the web team analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google under their privacy policies:

AGGREGATE DATA  
We will combine the information you provide with information from other visitors to the SPI2 Study Website to create Aggregate Data which does not contain any uniquely identifying information. We will share this Aggregate Data with the sponsor of the SPI2 Study, and/or its consultants. We will periodically analyze this Aggregate Data and use what we learn to make improvements to the SPI2 Study Website. We may also share this Aggregate Data with our partners to assist them in better designing their websites for clinical research studies.

CHILDREN
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Neither PAREXEL, nor any of its services, are designed or intended to attract children under the age of 13. We do not collect Personally Identifiable Information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13.

DATA SECURITY
We maintain technical, physical, and organizational procedures to safeguard Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information against unauthorized or unlawful processing and/or against accidental loss, alternation, disclosure or access.

USE AND DISCLOSURE
We will not use or disclose Personally Identifiable Information or Personal Health Information of users of the SPI2 Study Website for any purpose other than those described in this Privacy Policy. If these uses change at any time, we will update the privacy policy on the SPI2 Study Website. We only use and disclose data obtained from users in the following ways:

  • COMMUNICATION WITH REGARD TO STUDY REFERRAL AND/OR PRE-QUALIFICATION
    Personally Identifiable Information will be used by PAREXEL to follow-up with the clinical study site about your pre-qualification for the SPI2 Study.
  • SHARING INFORMATION WITH STUDY SITES
    We may forward Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information to the SPI2 Study site running the clinical research study of interest.
  • AGENTS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS
    We sometimes employ other companies and individuals to perform functions on our behalf. They may need access to your personal information to perform their functions.

SHARING INFORMATION WITH THIRD PARTIES
We may be required to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information to comply with a law or regulation, or in response to a search warrant, subpoena, or court order. In the event that we are legally compelled to disclose your Personally Identifiable Information or Personal Health Information to a third party, we will attempt to notify you, unless doing so would violate the law or court order. Disclosures may also be appropriate to protect our legal rights, to protect the security or integrity of the SPI2 Study Website, to take precautions against liability, or during emergencies if physical safety is believed to be at risk. These types of disclosures are unlikely to occur, but we want you to be aware that they are possible.

LINKS TO OTHER WEBSITES
The SPI2 Study Website may contain links to other websites. We will inform you about this via pop-up window containing website forwarding language. Please keep in mind when you access websites operated by other parties, whether through links on our website or otherwise, that we do not control what happens on those websites. You should always check the privacy policy of the website you are visiting in order to be sure you know how the operator of that website will collect information from you and what the operator of that website will do with the information.

INTERNET TRANSMISSION RISKS
We acknowledge that no internet transmission is ever 100% secure or error free. It is your responsibility to ensure that the computer you use is adequately secured and protected against malicious software, trojan horses, computer viruses and worm programs. Without adequate security measures on a computer, there is a risk that the information you provide could be disclosed to unauthorized third parties. Similarly, despite PAREXEL’s efforts to protect your Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information, there is always some risk that an unauthorized third party may find a way around our security systems or that transmissions of your information over the internet may be intercepted.

CHANGE NOTIFICATION
As privacy laws and regulations evolve, it may be necessary to revise or update our Privacy Policy without notice. You can determine if this Privacy Policy has been revised since your last visit by referring to the “last updated” legend at the bottom of this page. Your use of our website constitutes your acceptance of the terms of the revised Privacy Policy, and you should therefore review the Privacy Policy regularly to ensure that you are aware of its terms. Please print, save, and retain a copy of the Privacy Policy (and of any revised version) for your records.
