Privacy Policy

Thank you for your trust in Antidote, and for taking the time to read our Privacy Statement. This Privacy Statement tells you how we protect the privacy of personal information that you may provide to us.

Summary

We collect anonymous computer information to be able to provide the main service of this site, antidote.me (“the Site”). We collect personal identifiable information from you when you register and when you complete an eligibility questionnaire for specific trials. Your personal identifiable information is kept confidential. We do not share this information except as described in this policy (the “Privacy Policy” or “Privacy Statement”). All other information collected from you may be used and shared with third parties on an anonymous or aggregated basis only. Your personal information is stored in our databases. You can access, modify, or permanently delete your records at any time. We may contact you from time to time about other clinical trials that may suit your profile, to introduce new products, to share educational materials, to solicit patient stories after trials are completed, and for other reasons supporting our mission of helping patients find and access treatment options in development. You can opt out of this service at any time and can choose to not use the Site.

By accessing or using this Site, you agree to this Privacy Policy. This policy may change from time to time. Your continued use of this Site after we make changes is deemed to be acceptance of those changes, so please check the policy periodically for updates.

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 [email protected].

Purpose of Privacy Policy

The purpose of this Privacy Statement is to explain what Antidote 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 Antidote’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. Antidote 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 Antidote, or through a third party, such as their healthcare provider or a Antidote 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.

Data Integrity

Antidote 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

When you visit the Site or access our search tool through our partners, we do not collect any personally identifiable information about you without your permission. However, we do collect anonymous information about you if your computer is set to allow that type of collection. (You can turn off the ability to collect some of this information on most computers). This type of anonymous information allows us to evaluate customer interest in our website and perform other market research activities, such as monitoring browsing habits on our site. It also allows us to track customers who come to our website based on website advertisements about Antidote services. (For those who are interested in the details, some of the typical computer techniques we may use are “cookies,” “internet tags” which are also called “action tags,” “single-pixel GIFs,” “clear GIFs”, “invisible GIFs,” and “1-by-1 GIFs”). If you would like more information about web tags and cookies associated with online advertising or how to opt out of third-party collection of information, please visit the Network Advertising Initiative website, an independent website not sponsored by or affiliated with Antidote. Please see our Cookie policy to learn more about our use of cookies.

Consent to Provide Your Information to Antidote

We request your consent to collect your personally identifiable information when you seek to register for a Antidote 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

Antidote will not share your personal information with third parties except as set forth in this Privacy Policy or we have otherwise obtained your explicit consent to do so. You provide your consent when you select the appropriate option and click “submit” at the end of the eligibility questions or when leaving your email address. If you are interested in a specific trial, your personal information may be shared with the Sponsor of that particular clinical trial. Demographic and medical information you provide to us may be used and/or shared with third parties in anonymous and aggregated form only. Antidote requires third parties to whom it discloses personal data to protect personal information using substantially similar standards to those required by Antidote. We also require that they do not use your personal information for any separate use that is not specifically for the execution of the clinical trial or as otherwise authorized by Antidote. There may also be instances where Antidote may be required to share your information with third parties who have not been retained by us (directly or indirectly), such as with health authorities, during inspections or audits, or as ordered or directed by courts or other governmental agencies. Also, Antidote is obligated to report any Adverse Events identified through the course of the Program to the Sponsor’s Drug Safety for regulatory compliance. In these cases, you are also accepting that the Sponsor may contact your doctor for further information about the adverse event. All information received by Sponsor’s Drug Safety Department is treated in confidence and in accordance with the Privacy laws, and the patient information is de-identified. Adverse Event reports may be forwarded to the relevant health authorities.

Antidote may also share your personal information in the following circumstances: to our affiliates, provided their use and disclosure of your personal information will be subject to this Privacy Policy; to third-party vendors, service providers, contractors, advisors and agents who perform functions on Antidote’s behalf, and who are bound by contractual obligations to keep personal information confidential and use it only for the purposes for which Antidote discloses it to them; and to a buyer or other successor in the event of a merger, divestiture, restructuring, reorganization, dissolution or other sale or transfer of some or all of Antidote’s assets, whether as a going concern or as part of bankruptcy, liquidation or similar proceeding, in which personal information held by Antidote about our Site and customers is among the assets transferred.

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 Antidote 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.

Accountability

Our privacy practices are periodically reviewed by our auditors to verify compliance with this Privacy Statement.

Updating and Accessing Your Information

We encourage you to update the information you provide to us, such as providing us with a new mailing or email address, a name change, or a change in the medical conditions that you have notified us about. This will help us continue to provide information to you that best meets your needs. In addition, Antidote complies with laws and regulations applicable to the right to amend your data in our files. These rights are limited in some ways. In addition, in order to protect your data from unauthorized access or alteration by third parties, all requests to update or access your information will be subject to verification of the identity of the requesting individual. If you delete your user content from the Site, copies of your user content may remain viewable in cached and archived pages, or might have been copied or stored by other Site users. Proper access and use of information provided on the Site, including user content, is governed by our terms of use.

Updated Antidote Privacy Policies

This Privacy Statement becomes effective on March 10, 2016. Antidote may update this Statement from time to time. We encourage you to review our Privacy Statement periodically.
