Purpose of Privacy Policy


The purpose of this privacy statement is to explain what we do 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, under what circumstances we may share it with and with whom, and for what purposes.

Reason for Collection of Your Information


Many of Company'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 other of our services, such as inquiring for specific clinical trials and our personalized clinical trial search, 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.

Personal Information We Collect 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 Website. The information that we may ask you to provide may include your first name, email address, phone number, your age and information about your medical history. We limit the collection and processing of personal and medical information to what is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it is to be used.

At any time, you may reverse your consent to our Terms of Service. Please contact us at (888) 828-2206 or privacy@sparkcures.com to have your information removed from our system.

Consent to Provide Your Information to Company


We request your consent to collect your personally identifiable information when you seek to register for a Company 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 an effective way to opt out of the secondary use.

Sharing Your Information with Third-Parties


We will not share your personal information with third-parties unless we have obtained your explicit consent to do so. You provide your consent when you select the appropriate option during your clinical trial search. Demographic and medical information you provide to us may be used and/or shared with other third-parties but on an anonymous and aggregated form only. There may also be instances where we may be required to disclose 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 to comply with any court order, law or legal process, including to respond to any government or regulatory request.

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.
