I. Information We Collect
We may have access to the following categories of Personal Information regarding you and your visit to our website. Only some categories of information identify you directly, but each category offers some information about your interests and activities that could be used to make inferences about you.
Personal Information That You Voluntarily Provide
Information That Is Routinely Collected By Our Site Technology:
II. How We Use Your Information
Whether you are a consumer or a health care professional, we use the information about your use of the services and activities on our website to monitor user traffic patterns and try to analyze what our users prefer so that we can design better services. The Personal Information and Health-related Personal Information that you provide may be used to create customized offers, information, and services tailored to your interests and preferences. If you do not wish to receive emails or other communications from us, you may contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and request that your Personal Information be removed from our list.
Personal Information. We will only use your Personal Information when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your Personal Information in the following circumstances:
Health-related Personal Information. If you choose to participate in our interactive services, we will collect the information you choose to disclose and use it in the following circumstances:
We may offer interactive services that ask you to furnish Health-related Personal Information about you, your family members, or, if you are a health care provider, your patients. The information you disclose and provide in interactive services may be linked (pursuant to all applicable laws) with the Personal Information you may choose to provide elsewhere on our site and together this may provide us with Personal Information about your health and health care.
If you submit health-related personal information through our website to participate in a clinical trial, we may use that information to assess whether you qualify for enrollment in the trial, to contact you about potential participation in the trial, and to provide you with additional information about the trial. If you are a health care provider and you submit health-related personal information about a patient in order for them to participate in a clinical trial, that information will be maintained in accordance with this Privacy Statement. If we determine that your patient is eligible for the trial, we will use the information you submit to contact you about your patient’s potential participation in the trial and to provide you with additional information.
III. Disclosure and Relationship To Third Parties
Antares will not sell, rent, license, or trade any Personal Information or Health-related Personal Information you provide on our site to an unrelated third party without your express permission, except as explained in this Privacy Statement. If we allow a third party contractor to have access to your Personal Information or health-related personal information, we will not authorize them to take it or use it for any purpose that is not consistent with this Privacy Statement.
IV. Our Security Measures
The security of your data is very important to Antares. We have implemented appropriate security measures, including encryption practices, to prevent your Personal Information and Health-related Personal Information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed in an unauthorized way, altered or disclosed. All personal and/or health-related personal information is kept physically behind firewalls that prevent intruders from gaining access. As an added security precaution, we deploy various methods of protection such as host intrusion prevention and detection systems to maintain the integrity and confidentiality of data.
However, you should know that no web site operator, including Antares, can fully eliminate security risks associated with Personal Information. While Antares has endeavored to create a secure and reliable website for users, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted to/from the Site or via e-mail cannot be guaranteed.
We have put in place procedures to deal with any suspected Personal Information breach and will notify you and any applicable regulator of a breach where we are legally required to do so.
V. Links to Other Sites
The Site may contain links to other websites. Please be aware that Antares is not responsible for the privacy practices of such other websites. When you connect to a website that is linked to our Site, we encourage you to read the privacy statements of that website. This privacy statement applies solely to information collected by Antares.
VI. Response to “Do Not Track” Signals
Some Internet browsers include the ability to transmit “Do Not Track” signals. Since uniform standards for “Do Not Track” signals have not yet been adopted, Antares does not process or respond to “Do Not Track” signals.
VII. Our Children’s Policy
Under Age 13
Antares understands the importance of protecting children's privacy in the interactive online world. The Site is not designed for, or intentionally targeted at, children under 13 years of age. It is not our policy to intentionally collect or maintain information about anyone under the age of 13. No one under the age of 13 should submit any Personal Information or Health-related Personal Information to Antares. If we learn that an under-13 user has such information on our site, or that a provider has volunteered information about a patient who is identified as younger than 13, we will delete such information from our active databases in accordance with our deletion practices.
Under Age 18
Minors under 18 years of age may have the Personal Information that they have provided to Antares through the Site deleted by sending an email to email@example.com requesting deletion. Please note that, while we make reasonable efforts to comply with such requests, deletion of your personal information does not ensure complete and comprehensive removal of that data from all systems.
VIII. Deletion Practices
Upon receiving your request, Antares will delete all of your Personal and/or Health-related Personal Information stored in the databases Antares actively uses for research and daily business activities, or otherwise stored in readily searchable media. In addition, we will use commercially reasonable efforts not to disclose any personal information stored in a non-erasable format after receiving your request for removal, except as required by law. Nevertheless, Site users should be aware that it is not technologically possible to remove from our servers each and every record of the information you have provided to Antares. The information that you provide Antares is stored in servers that are operated and maintained by Antares and third parties under contract with Antares. The need to back-up our systems to protect information from inadvertent loss means that a copy of information about you or your health-related interests may exist in non-erasable forms that will be difficult or impossible for us to locate.
Please be aware that Antares may not comply with a consumer’s request to amend or remove information that was provided to Antares by a health care professional or a consumer regarding an adverse drug event.
IX. California Consumer Privacy Act
If you are a California resident, California law provides you with the following rights with respect to your Personal Information:
When you exercise these rights and submit a request to us, we will verify your identity by asking you to log in to your account if you have one with us. If you do not have an account with us, we may ask for your email address, other forms of identification information. We also may use a third party verification provider to verify your identity.
Your exercise of these rights will have no adverse effect on the price and quality of our services.
Antares will not sell your Personal Information or Health-related Personal Information.
