Collecting Your Information
Covance will use its website to collect information that is voluntarily submitted by you and which can be used by us to identify and contact you, including but not limited to your name, address, date of birth, contact telephone number and e-mail address. We will also request additional Personal Information relating to your height and weight and health history, as well as data which is recognised as being sensitive, such as your ethnicity. This information is necessary for us to identify whether you are potentially suitable to be invited to participate in clinical trials as outlined under the heading 'Use of Your Information' below.
How we will use your Personal Information
We will add your Personal Information as volunteered by you via this website, on to our volunteer database, and use it to identify and notify you of clinical trials and services which may be suitable for you to be invited to participate in. Information submitted by you via this website will create an email that is provided to us which will be deleted once you have been contacted or once the information has been added to the volunteer database.
Please be aware that by submitting your Personal Information via this website, you consent to a member of our team contacting you directly by way of following-up with you, including contacting you directly by telephone or other means, including SMS text messages, and adding your Personal Information to our volunteer database.
We may also use your Personal Information to respond to subsequent requests you may make of us, and from time to time, we may refer to your Personal Information to better understand your needs and how we can improve our websites, products and services.
We may enhance or merge your Personal Information with data obtained from third parties for the same purposes. Any other information transferred by you in connection with your visit to this website which cannot be used to identify you (and which, therefore, does not constitute your Personal Information) may be included in databases owned and maintained by Covance or its agents worldwide.
Worldwide Transfer of your Personal Information
We may share your Personal Information with agents, contractors or partners of Covance in connection with services that these individuals or entities perform for, or with, Covance. These agents, contractors or partners are restricted from using this information in any way other than to provide services for Covance, or services for the collaboration in which they and Covance are engaged. We may, for example, provide your information to agents, contractors or partners for hosting our databases, for data processing services, or so that they can mail you information that you requested.

We may collect information about your computer, including where available your IP Address and other information gathered through our weblogs and cookies (see below) such as web log information. Web log information is gathered when you visit one of our websites by the computer that hosts our website (called a "webserver"). The webserver automatically recognizes some non-personal purely statistical information about your browsing actions, such as the date and time you visited our site, the pages you visited, the website you came from, the type of browser you are using (e.g. Internet Explorer or Netscape), the type of operating system you are using (e.g. Windows XP) and the domain name and address of your Internet service provider (e.g. MSN).
This website uses Internet Protocol (IP) Addresses. An IP Address is a number assigned to your computer by your Internet service provider so you can access the Internet. Generally, an IP address changes each time you connect to the Internet (it is a "dynamic" address). Note, however, that if you have a broadband connection, depending on your individual circumstance, it is possible that your IP Address that we collect, or even perhaps a cookie we use, may contain information that could be deemed identifiable. This is because with some broadband connections your IP Address doesn't change (it is "static") and could be associated with your personal computer. We use your IP address to report aggregate information on use and to help improve the website.
Updates and Changes
Information Change/removal from volunteer database
Please note that should you request that your Personal Information be deleted you may continue to receive materials for a short period while we are updating our lists. Your records will then be permanently deleted from our volunteer database, other than information where you have been screened or participated as a clinical trial volunteer in which case such information may continue to be processed in connection with the clinical trial.
The data controller for this site is Covance Inc. based in the USA and whilst every effort is made to comply with the eight data protection principles laid down under EU Data Protection Directive 95/46 EC, we cannot guarantee that this website or any Covance group operations based outside the EEA strictly conform with that Directive.
