When you browse this website, you do so anonymously. We don’t collect personal information – including your e-mail address.
SCR use a range of tools provided by third parties, such as Google Analytics, to collect or view website traffic information. These sites have their own privacy policies and SCR is not responsible for the privacy practices of other business – or the content of websites that may be linked to our website.
The information that may be collected anonymously when you visit our website may include:
SCR uses this information to maintain, secure and improve our website and to enhance your experience when using it.
In relation to Google Analytics you can opt out of the collection of this information using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.
No attempt will be made to identify anonymous users or their browsing activities unless SCR is legally compelled to do so, such as in the event of an investigation, where a law enforcement agency may exercise a warrant to inspect the Internet Service Provider’s log files.
Like many other websites, the SCR website may use a standard technology called a “cookie” to collect information about how you use the site.
The SCR website uses ‘cookies’ for maintaining contact with a user through a website session. A cookie is a small file supplied by us and stored by the web browser software on your computer when you access our site. Cookies allow us to recognise you as an individual as you move from one of our web pages to another.
All cookies will be immediately lost when you end your internet session and shut down your computer. SCR’s record of your information will be automatically deleted twenty minutes after you last use our website. This information is only used to help you navigate the SCR website systems more efficiently, not to track your movements through the internet, or to record personal information about you.
Personal information is information that can identify you as an individual.
Use of the SCR website does not require you to submit personal information. Some activities, such as sending us an email, completing a form or survey, making a donation, or providing other comments or messages may include the voluntary submission of your personal information.
Where SCR collects personal information from you by means of this website including, without limitation, the registration of your interest in participating in a clinical trial or, separately, uses that information to contact you in relation to a specific clinical trial in which you agree to participate, or a donation you wish to make, your registration or agreement will operate as a specific authority and privacy waiver enabling us to share your information with third parties.
In addition, information may be collected from organisations wishing to engage SCR’s services in respect of research and clinical trial activities.
SCR does not disclose the name and address or any other personal information of any donor or subscriber to any other organisation or body, nor does it share its database. While we do seek to recognise our donor’s support at times in SCR’s publications, we will always first ask the donor for their permission to do so. Details are strictly confidential and used only for the purposes set out above.
In addition to providing our services to you and carrying out your requests, we may use or disclose personal information that we collect about you for our business and as permitted by law. Such purposes include, but are not limited to, the following:
Where the Privacy Act permits it, SCR may disclose the personal information of current or potential participants in clinical trials, sponsors (or potential sponsors), donors and other parties to third parties. Third parties that we may disclose your personal information to include:
SCR places an importance on the security of all information associated with our website. We have security measures in place to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of personal information under our control.
No data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be 100 per cent secure. As a result, while we strive to protect user’s personal information, SCR cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information transmitted to it or from its website, and users do so at their own risk.
Once SCR receives your transmission, it makes every effort to ensure its security on its systems.
If you would like access to the personal information we hold about you, or to have your name removed from our database, please contact us by phone or by email.
