We are firmly committed to protecting the confidentiality of your Personal Information. The term “Personal Information” means any information which can be used to directly or indirectly identify you including by way of example, but not limitation, name, date of birth, mailing address, home phone number, cell phone number, e-mail address and/or any device ID (such as your IP address), either by itself or when linked with other Personal Information.
The Site is not intended to collect or use protected health information (“PHI”) as defined by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act and its implementing regulations (“HIPAA”). Please do not submit any PHI through the Site.
United BioSource, LLC operates the site and is the data controller in respect of your Personal Information for the purposes of European data protection law. In accordance with these laws, we have appointed UBC Late Stage (UK) Limited (26-28 Hammersmith Grove, London, W6 7HA (UK)) as our representative in Europe.
This Privacy Notice describes how we will make use of your Personal Information on the Site and during your interactions with us, including any Personal Information we use to send you direct marketing (for example, to contact you about future clinical studies using Personal Information submitted via the Investigator Registration Page).

We may use the Personal Information that we collect in furtherance of our legitimate interests in providing you with the products and services you have requested, to fulfill the terms of a contract you have with us, with your consent, or to comply with our legal obligations. A failure to provide such Personal Information will mean that UBC cannot provide you with the product or service you have requested.
Wherever we rely on consent, you will be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your data for other purposes, such as compliance with applicable laws. You have the right to opt-out of direct marketing, or profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by (i) following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, or (ii) contacting us using the information provided below.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your Personal Information in some circumstances (including where we are using the data for direct marketing).
These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal Personal Information about another person, or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have overriding legitimate interests in keeping.
To exercise any of these rights, you can get in touch with us – or our data protection officer – at: email@example.com.
The relevant forms that you complete generally indicate which data is required for us to fulfill your requests for products or services. All other provision of your information is optional.
