Information We Collect
Most browser software can be set to reject all Cookies. Note, however, that some portions of our websites may not work properly if you reject Cookies.
We may also receive IP addresses in the normal course of the operation of our websites. 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.
SPLASH CLINICAL LLC uses standard Web Logs that record basic data about your visit to our websites, such as the date and time of the visit, the pages 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 our websites or use them 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 or as otherwise required in order to comply with applicable law or legal process. 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.
Collection, Use and Disclosure of Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information
Personally Identifiable Information that may be collected via a clinical research study 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, date of birth, and any other information that may be used to identify you.
While you may view some of our study websites without providing Personally Identifiable Information, submitting Personally Identifiable Information to us will be required to be considered for participation in a research study.
- COMMUNICATION WITH REGARD TO STUDY REFERRAL PRE-QUALIFICATION AND/OR OTHER STUDY-RELATED PURPOSES
Personally Identifiable Information will be used by SPLASH CLINICAL LLC to follow-up with the clinical study site about your pre-qualification for and participation in the study and may be shared with the clinical study site for its assessment of your qualification for and participation in a study.
- AGENTS AND SERVICE PROVIDERS SUPPORTING STUDY RECRUITMENT EFFORTS
We may also be required to disclose Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information to comply with a law or regulation, in response to a search warrant, subpoena, court order, or other valid legal process, or in response to lawful requests by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. 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 be inconsistent with our legal obligations.
We will combine the information you provide with information from other visitors to our websites to create Aggregate Data which does not contain any uniquely identifying information. We will share this Aggregate Data with the sponsors of our websites, and/or their consultants. We will periodically analyze this Aggregate Data and use what we learn to make improvements to our websites. We may also share this Aggregate Data with our partners to assist them in better designing their websites.
We are committed to protecting the privacy of children. Neither SPLASH CLINICAL LLC, nor any of its websites or services, are designed or intended to attract children under the age of 13. We do not collect, solicit, or use Personally Identifiable Information from any person we actually know is under the age of 13. If we learn that we collected Personally Identifiable Information from any child under the age of 13, we will endeavor to delete that information as soon as possible. Please contact SPLASH CLINICAL LLC at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone number (414)-443-3280 if you have reason to suspect that we have collected Personally Identifiable Information of any child under the age of 13.

Internet Transmission Risks

Similarly, despite SPLASH CLINICAL LLC’s efforts to protect your Personally Identifiable Information and Personal Health Information, as noted above, 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.
