Privacy Policy

Last Updated: April 30, 2019

Emilie Scientific, Inc. (“Emilie” “us” or “we”) wants to protect the privacy of Personal Data. Through our “Emilie Scientific” platform (the “Platform”) and the website located at www.emiliescientific.com and any successor site (the “Site”), we give you digital tools discover, learn about, pre-qualify for, and provide consent to clinical trials. This Privacy Policy describes how we collect, use and disclose “Data” via the Platform, Site and related services (collectively, the “Services”). As used in this policy, “Data” means Personal Data and Usage Data.

In the event you suffer a research-related injury, this Privacy Policy will not preclude you from seeking to collect compensation for injury related to malpractice, fault, or blame on the part of those involved in the research.

On occasion, a survey or other activity you encounter on the Platform in connection with a specific trial may have a different privacy policy associated with it. Such trial-specific privacy policy will take precedence over this Privacy Policy, but only in relation to that specific trial.

1. USERS

People under the age of 18 must not use the Services. We do not knowingly collect or ask for Personal Data from anyone 13 years old or younger. We do not knowingly allow such persons to register on the Services. If we learn that we have collected Personal Data from anyone younger than 13, we will do what’s reasonable to delete that Personal Data. A parent or guardian of a minor child can request that we delete the Personal Data of the minor.

We are not a health care provider or insurance provider. The Services do not provide health care services of any type.

2. DATA WE COLLECT

Data That You Give Us

We collect Personal Data that you give us. Personal Data is information that leaves a reasonable basis to identify you. Personal Data includes your name, email address, address, phone number, and birth date. Personal Data also includes the personal medical information you choose to give us when completing surveys and other activities via the Services.

Data Created Automatically

We collect Usage Data that is created automatically when you use the Services. Usage Data comes in many forms:

Data about your use of the Services. Examples: Your activities within the Platform and the length of time that you are logged in through the Platform.

Unique identifiers such as your mobile device ID and the IP address when you are using the Services.

Data created with the use of “cookies” and similar tools. These tools collect data that give us insights into the usability, performance and effectiveness of our Services. We may use session cookies, which expire once you close your browser. We may also use persistent cookies, which stay on your device until you delete them. Cookies help us remember you when you return to a Site. This results in a more personal and interactive experience on our Platform.

Data created with the use of third-party analytics and tracking tools. These tools include Google Analytics, Google Optimize, and Google Tag Manager, to name a few. We use these tools to gain insight into who uses the Services and how. We also use these tools to improve the Services.

The groups who make these analytics and tracking tools also use the data collected or created through these tools. As a general matter, these groups use cookies, pixel tags or other methods to collect and store anonymous data about you. Examples of such anonymous data are time of visit, pages visited, time spent using the Services, device identifiers, type of operating system used, and other website(s) you may have visited. They might add information they collect from your interaction with the Services with data they collect from other sources.

We do not determine how these groups use such data. We are not liable to you for the actions of these third parties.

We do not collect Data about your location while using the Services. We may do so at some point in the future. We will ask you for consent before collecting such data.

3. HOW WE USE DATA

Do Not Track (DNT) is a privacy preference that users can set in some web browsers. DNT allows users to opt out of tracking by websites and online services. We and the Services do not recognize DNT.

4. HOW WE SHARE DATA

We will not share Data with others except as stated in this Privacy Policy. We may share Data:

We may also use Data to create aggregate or de-identified data. Aggregate or de-identified information is data we collect about users as a group. It has no individual identities in it. No Personal Data will be included in aggregate or de-identified data. We use aggregate or de-identified data to see trends and user needs. It gives us insight into new products and services. It also helps us tailor existing products and services to customer desires.

6. THIRD PARTY SITES / LINKS

Our Services may have links to sites run by others. We do not control those sites. Just because we link to a third-party site does not mean that we are responsible for that site or the actions of its operator. We will not be liable for the actions of third parties. We will not be liable for how third parties use or share Data. Any Data you give to these third parties is subject to that third party’s privacy policy.

7. DATA SECURITY, INTEGRITY, AND RETENTION
