We collect anonymous computer information to be able to provide the main service of this site, (“the Site”). We collect personally identifiable information from you when you register and when you answer eligibility questions relating to clinical trials. Your personally identifiable information is kept confidential and will never be disclosed unless we are required to do so by law. 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 personally identifiable information is stored in our databases. You can access, modify, or permanently delete your records at any time. With your consent we may contact you from time to time about 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. 

Antidote may contact you via equivalently secure registered third-party platforms, email, SMS text, web chat, or social media. Antidote does not exchange personally identifiable information through/via social media – nor do we sell or share your personally identifiable information with social media channels.

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. 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 services do require that you provide your personal details - including but not limited to your name, age, gender, racial or ethnic origin, contact details (mailing address/telephone number/email address), health information/history, medical records and demographics. With your consent; this allows us to contact you by telephone, email, SMS text, web chat or social media to: 

  1. Provide you with information that you request about specific clinical trials or potential trials which you may be suitable for. 
  2. Introduce relevant on-the-market drugs and new products to you. 
  3. Share educational content from Antidote and Antidote-approved partners. 
  4. Share your information with our approved Partners to support our mission of helping patients find and access existing treatment options and those in development. 
  5. 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. 
  6. Get your feedback and comments to improve our service to you. 

Antidote does not sell and will not share your personally identifiable information without your consent. 

You may update your preferences or opt out of any of these communications at any time by contacting us as directed below. 

Personally Identifiable Information Collected From You 

The information that we ask you to provide may include your first and last name, age, gender, racial or ethnic origin, contact details (mailing address/telephone number/email address), information relating to your medical conditions and history, biometrics and genetic profile. 

Antidote limits the collection and processing of personally identifiable information 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 an Antidote partner. When you register with us more than once, we may combine your personally identifiable information with 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 & Security of Your Information 

Antidote takes all reasonable steps to ensure that personally identifiable information collected is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current. 

Antidote uses 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 personally identifiable 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. 

Any detected breach of data security (accidental or unlawful access, disclosure or misuse of personally identifiable information) shall be reported without undue delay. 

Collection of 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 information about you if your computer is set to allow that type of collection. This includes IP address, device ID or fingerprint, Cookies, Web Beacons, Pixels, Tags (including server-to-server tag tracking such as Application Programming Interfaces ‘API’), and other similar online tracking technologies - depending on your location. You can turn off the ability to collect some of this information from your computer or device settings. 

This type of information allows us to evaluate interest in our website and perform other market research analytics. It also allows us to track visitors to our website based on website advertisements about Antidote services. Please see our Cookies and Online Tracking Policy to learn more. 

For information on how to opt out of third-party collection of information; please visit the Network Advertising Initiative’s (NAI) website - an independent website not sponsored by, or affiliated with Antidote. 

Consent to Provide Your Information to Antidote 

We request your consent to collect your personally identifiable information when you seek to register for an 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 personally identifiable 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 an effective way to opt out of the secondary use. Please note that if we share your personally identifiable information with a sponsor or manager of a clinical trial (a “Sponsor”) that Sponsor may continue to have access to your personally identifiable information even if you choose to no longer receive additional information from us. 

Sharing Your Information With Third Parties 

Antidote will not share your personally identifiable 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 personally identifiable information may be shared with the Sponsor of that particular clinical trial and any partners involved in delivering the trial services. These may include approved clinical trial sites, laboratory screening/testing, transportation services, advertising partners, language interpretation providers, data partners and administration providers. 

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 personally identifiable information to protect personally identifiable information using substantially similar standards to those required by Antidote. We also require that they do not use your personally identifiable 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), as ordered or directed by courts of law 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 personally identifiable information in the following circumstances: to our affiliates, provided their use and disclosure of your personally identifiable 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 personally identifiable 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 personally identifiable information held by Antidote about our Site and customers is among the assets transferred.
