By using or accessing one of the websites ("Sites") owned by Clinical Consulting Services, LLC ("CCS”), or its’ subsidiaries, including Clinical Site Services, DBA CSSi, Nexus Informatics and CSSi LifeSciences™, you agree to the terms of this Privacy Policy. The term "personal information" as used throughout this Privacy Policy, applies to any information that is used by or on behalf of CCS to identify an individual.

We have provided this Privacy Policy to describe how we collect, use, share and protect the personal information you provide to us at this Site. This Privacy Policy only applies to personal information we collect at our Sites and via the electronic communications technologies that we use. It does not apply to personal information collected through other means, including personal information you provide in e-mail messages you send to us or personal information we may collect from you offline. This Privacy Policy is intended for all visitors to the CCS Sites including consumers, healthcare professionals and CCS business partners.

At some of our Sites, we may use personal information in a manner not described in this Privacy Policy. In those instances, the different uses of personal information will be disclosed to you at the web page where your personal information is collected, prior to such collection. If you do not agree with the terms of this Privacy Policy, do not use or access (or continue to use or access) the Sites.

The Information We Collect

When you visit the Sites you may provide us with two types of information: (i) information regarding your use of the Sites collected by us as you interact with the Sites and (ii) information you submit voluntarily via the Sites.

  1. When you enter the Sites, we may also collect your browser type, IP address, your operating system (e.g., Windows 2000), the domain name of your internet service provider (e.g., Comcast), the date and time of your visit, the pages viewed, the time spent at our Site, and the websites visited just before and just after our Site. In addition, we store certain information from your browser using "cookies." A cookie is a piece of data stored on the user's computer tied to information about the user. We may use session ID cookies to confirm that users are logged in. Any and all of this information may be associated with your personal information.

    This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google") which uses cookies to help the web team analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google under their privacy policy:

    If you do not want information collected through the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that allows you to deny or accept the cookie feature; however, you should note that cookies may be necessary to provide you certain features available on the Sites.

  2. Through the use of certain functionality of the Sites, you may provide us with your name, company affiliation, email address, telephone number, physical address, and other information that may be required for you to use such functionality. You may always choose not to provide us with your personal information, and we will disclose to you at the time we collect your personal information whether it is required for you to receive the information or services you have requested. To better understand and address your interests, and to keep the personal information we have about you accurate, we may correct or add to the personal information you provide to us at our Sites with personal information we receive from you offline or from other sources.

    You have several choices regarding your use of our Sites. You could decide not to submit any personal information at all. Although certain Sites may ask for permission to use your personal information for certain purposes, you can agree or decline to provide your personal information. If you subscribe for particular communications or services such as e-mail updates, you will be able to unsubscribe at any time by: (i) following any opt-out instructions contained in communications you receive from CCS, (ii) un-subscribing at specific areas of the Sites where you registered, if available, or (iii) sending a written request to the CCS contact address, which appears at the end of this Privacy Policy.

    As described above, if you wish to prevent cookies from tracking you as you navigate our Sites, you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent.
