Clinical Trial Participant Information
If you are interested in participating in a clinical trial, the information you provide when registering online or over the telephone can then be expanded upon to determine your suitability and to ensure we can give you the best possible care available. CMB Clinical Trials uses the information gathered to respond to your inquiry, inform you about upcoming clinical trials that may be suitable or of interest to you, arrange appointments to attend our clinic, assess trends in therapy areas around the demographic areas of our clinical research sites.
Also, the information can be used to periodically send promotional communications about upcoming clinical trials or other health-related information. With your permission, CMB Clinical Trials may also contact you to participate in patient insight surveys to help us improve our services, and we may also use the information to customize our promotional materials and websites according to people’s interests.
When you submit personal information over the telephone, the information you provide is then inserted into our central database. These storage points are managed in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and local privacy and data protection regulations.
For those people who request a newsletter and indicate the conditions/therapy areas that you are interested in, the information you submit is emailed to a controlled holding address managed by CMB Clinical Trials. The information you provide is then inserted into a third-party program that is used to design, send, and monitor the email that we have sent to you. This program complies fully with the Data Protection Act, and you can opt-out of receiving these newsletters at any time.
Your contact details may be used by CMB Clinical Trials to contact you by phone, email or text and to arrangement registration or appointments. We may also use your information to post or email letters or materials that we believe may be of interest to you and to respond to any queries or complaints that you may have.
