“Privacy” and “Special Category” Policy

Panacea Patient Recruitment Limited (PPRL) “Privacy” and “Special Category” Policy

This notice applies to all visitors to our patient recruitment websites and anyone who takes part in our recruitment process to be a volunteer in a clinical trial. It explains how our organisation collects, processes, stores, and passes your information to the clinical trial’s third-party organisation. This policy relates only to screening of your eligibility to participate in a clinical trial by PPRL and the sharing of your contact details, submitted online questionnaire and our doctors triage notes with the clinical trial site. If you are deemed eligible to participate in the clinical trial that you have expressed an interest in, your details will be shared with the clinical trial site. You will be provided with a separate informed consent form by the clinical trial site, which will set out how your personal data will be processed in connection with the clinical trial.

The Policy is written to meet applicable legal requirements globally, including in the UK, North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and other jurisdictions.

We collect and process your name, address, email address, telephone numbers, date of birth, and gender only with your consent. We may also collect, store, and use more sensitive personal information referred to by the UK data protection regulator known as Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) as “Special category” information. Special category information requires higher levels of protection. The special categories of information we collect and process is information about your health, including medical conditions, health, medications, and sickness records. We process special categories of personal information only with your explicit consent. You have the right to withdraw your consent to our processing your data, including special categories, at any time (see contact information provided below). If you do withdraw consent, (i) you will not be able to be considered for participation in the trial that you have expressed an interest, and (ii) no further personal data will be collected about you. This does not affect the lawfulness of processing which occurred prior to your consent being withdrawn.

The data controller of your information will be the organiser or sponsor of the trial where your personal data is processed for the purpose of considering your suitability for participation in a clinical trial conducted by that sponsor; however, PPRL may act as a data controller in certain circumstances (for example, if you consent to your information being retained in a database maintained by PPRL).

How do we collect your data?
Most of the personal information we process is provided directly by you. For example, when you complete an online submission form to establish your suitability for a clinical trial. The information you submit is imported onto our secure servers and encrypted in real-time. We may also receive additional personal information directly by telephoning you if required. We may also receive information from your GP, where you have consented to this being shared. This will only occur if you have been successfully pre-screened. More information on this is available in our GP consent form.

How will we use your data?
We use the information that you have given us to evaluate your note of interest by our qualified doctors. If the triage is satisfactory, your enquiry will be passed to the clinical trial site. If you have consented to your GP records being shared, those records will also be shared with the clinical trial site at this time.

How do we store your data?
Your information is encrypted and securely stored in the cloud on servers in the UK. We keep personal information for three years for legal reasons. After three years, you will be asked if you wish us to keep your data for further three years in case we have another clinical trial to propose to you. If you do not wish or do not respond, your data will be deleted securely from our database.

Under data protection law, you have the following rights:

1. Your right of access – You have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal information. Please note, we may charge you a small fee if you request several copies.
2. Your right to rectification – You have the right to ask us to rectify information that is inaccurate. You also have the right to ask us to complete information you think is incomplete.
3. Your right to erasure – You have the right to ask us to erase your personal information in certain circumstances.
4. Your right to restriction of processing – You have the right to ask us to restrict the processing of your information in certain circumstances.
5. Your right to object to processing – You have the right to object to processing your data in certain circumstances.
6. Your right to data portability – You have the right to ask that we transfer the information you gave us to another organisation, or you, in certain circumstances.

Please note, however, that the exercising of certain rights will depend on the legal basis upon which we are processing that personal data and may depend upon other applicable data protection rights.
We may require you to provide additional information to confirm your identity before we comply with any request. In addition, we will process all requests received under this Privacy Policy per the local laws of the country where you are located.
