What personal data we collect and why we collect it

Proposals, Bids, Messages, and Comments

When visitors post any information on the site we collect the data shown in the submission form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

The information associate with any visitor is kept private and is only used for ClinicalBid purposes such as communication and website use analytics. No personal or company information is ever used as part of our company operational processes.

If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

Contact forms

All information collected via contact forms is used SOLELY for the purpose of providing service. None of the information you submit is never shared.

Cookies

If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.

If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Information on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

Analytics

Who we share your data with

No one, EVER!

How long we retain your data

If you leave a comment or interact with any of our support or static content, the associated input and its metadata are retained indefinitely. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up actions automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.

For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.

What rights you have over your data

If you have an account on this site, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.

Where we send your data

Nowhere EVER!

Your contact information

You account and contact information is used only by ClinicalBid for the purpose of communicating with you. None of this information is shared.

Additional information

How we protect your data

Personal data shall be subject to additional safeguards to ensure this data is processed securely. For example, we work hard to ensure data is encrypted when in transit and storage, and access to this data will be strictly limited to a minimum number of individuals and subject to confidentiality commitments.  

We will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Policy. Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to any of our websites; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access. When possible, encryption is used, both in transit and storage. Access controls within the organisation limit who may access information.

What data breach procedures we have in place

Upon us becoming or being made aware of a data breach, we will immediately send out a correspondence, via email, to all users of the system with the intent of making your aware of the breach.

We will make it our first priority to communicate to you any suspicion of data breach so that all parties can take the appropriate action.

What third parties we receive data from

Currently the only 3rd party data we use comes from the following sources:

  • Google Maps and Fonts
  • US Clinical Trial Website (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The World Health Organization (www.who.int)
