Statistics & Data Corporation (SDC) is committed to respecting the privacy of individuals. To better protect your privacy, we provide this notice to explain our online information practices and the choices you have about the way your personal information is collected and used.
Why We Collect Personal Data
By "Personal Information" we mean information that identifies or is capable of identifying an individual, including our clients, volunteers or patients in clinical studies (research subjects), employees, vendors and clinical investigators with whom we work. Personal Information may include, but is not limited to, first and last name, date of birth, company information, home or other physical address, email address, phone number or other contact information.
You may be asked to provide Personal Information when you use our website, or volunteer for clinical studies or otherwise work with SDC. In addition, if you become a volunteer, we will (with your consent) collect information in relation to your medical history which we will retain and/or dispose of or transfer in accordance with both the relevant protocol for the clinical study for which it was gathered and applicable local law.
From time to time, we may request information from you via surveys. Participation in these surveys is completely voluntary, and, therefore, you have the choice of whether or not to disclose such information. Information requested may include contact information (such as name, correspondence address and telephone number), and demographic information (such as zip or postal code or age).
How We Use This Information
The information provided by you is stored in a database in order to provide you with the information you requested. This information will only be shared with employees of SDC and only to the extent necessary to accommodate your request. SDC does not share your information with outside third parties without your explicit consent. SDC is a global company with offices and databases throughout the world. SDC may transfer your data to one of its databases or offices, which is outside your country of domicile. SDC takes measures to protect data that is so transferred.
SDC may collect information on its Web pages for reasons such as processing newsletter requests and job applications, and providing company information. Categories of collected information (if provided by you) include contact information, company information and job search/application information. For example, name, address, phone number, e-mail address, company name, position, resume, desired compensation and/or "cookie" information may be collected to process your request.
Every effort is made to ensure that the information is accurate and up-to-date and all communications with individuals provide easy means of validating, correcting errors and updating information.
You Have The Right To:
- Request a copy of your data that you have provided to SDC
- Correct your data
- Withdraw consent to the further processing of your data.
