The following policies apply to all Web pages owned and maintained by OpenClinical:

  • When a visitor requests pages at openclinical.org, our Web server automatically recognizes the browser's domain name and IP address but does not record e-mail addresses. Domain names and IP addresses are collected, using "cookies". This information is obtained in order to collect information on what pages users access, and is maintained solely for statistical purposes and to help us maintain the site. It is not used to enable us to identify individuals. In accordance with UK Data Protection law, we uphold stringent security procedures for the storage and use of any personal information you submit to us. If you choose to supply your email and/or postal address in an online form or in offering feedback, your name and address will not be circulated to any other organisation or put to any other or further use without your prior knowledge and permission. Equally, if you sign up for e-mail newsletters or discussion lists at OpenClinical, you will receive only the e-mail newsletter or discussion list you have requested. No effort is made to identify individuals who participate in forums; your name or alias is recorded solely for the purpose of maintaining your own account within the forums.
  • We operate a strict no-spam policy. You will not receive mailings from any other organisation without your prior knowledge and agreement.

At any time you may request to be removed from our electronic mailing list via an e-mail to: contact@openclinical.org.
