Consent for TrialSpark Program Enrollment

Last updated November 17, 2016

TrialSpark has developed a program that connects patients to the research studies and clinical trials (“Studies”) appropriate to their diagnoses or conditions (the “Program”). When you provide you or your child’s personally identifiable information (“PII”) to TrialSpark in connection with the Program, TrialSpark may make that information available to researchers, trial sponsors, and pharmaceutical companies and other entities (“Researchers”) who are conducting Studies in which you may be able to participate if you meet the applicable requirements.

By signing up for the Program and agreeing to this consent form, you are authorizing TrialSpark and its affiliates to:

  • Collect and store you or your child’s PII, which may include you or your child’s name, email, phone number, contact information and other personal information that you may decide to provide;
  • Use your email and phone number to contact you;
  • Send you, via email, health-related surveys that will ask you to submit information to TrialSpark including, but not limited to, you or your child’s age, gender, smoking status, diagnoses, medical conditions, medical history, medications, and healthcare-related information (“Health Information”);
  • Store the Health Information you submit in those surveys along with you or your child’s PII in TrialSpark’s database;
  • Share you or your child’s PII and Health Information with Researchers who may contact you directly to invite you to participate in Studies.
  • Use the information you submit, including Health Information, on a de-identified or aggregated basis to improve the Program, for research and analysis, for demographic profiling, and for any other purposes described in our Privacy Policy.
