This website is owned and operated by PCM Trials in the United States. PCM Trials may transfer your personal information to the United States, to any PCM Trials affiliate worldwide, or to third parties acting on our behalf for the purposes of processing or storage. Some of PCM Trials’ companies and third parties may be located in countries that do not require the same level of data protection as the country you reside in. When transferring personal information across country borders, PCM Trials and its companies utilize appropriate transfer mechanisms as applicable (which may include consent, Standard Contractual Clauses, existing adequacy decisions, etc.). Nevertheless, all PCM Companies are required to treat personal information in a manner consistent with this notice and our internal global privacy policies. By using our services or providing personal information for any of the purposes stated above, you consent to the collection, storage, and processing of your information in the United States and in any country to which we may transfer your information in the course of our business operations, whether provided by you or obtained through a third party, including the hosting of such personal information on servers in the United States.
PCM Trials stores your data no longer than necessary. How long we retain your data depends on the type of data and the purpose for which the data was collected and processed. We will typically keep your information for no longer than the purpose(s) for which it was obtained, unless we have a legal obligation to keep it for a longer period or retention is advisable for PCM Trials’ legal position (for example, regarding applicable statutes of limitations, litigation or regulatory investigations).
No part of our website is designed to appeal to anyone under the age of 13, nor is the website intended for minors under the age of 18.
