Edited: April 30th 2018

Your privacy is important to us and the Evaluate Group, including EvaluatePharma USA, Inc. (collectively “Evaluate”), is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy.

Evaluate is an international business with offices in the U.S. Our management and business processes cross borders which results in client and employee data being transferred across borders.

We may handle Personal Identifiable Information (“PII”) collected from individuals located within the European Union (“EU”) member countries, so we have therefore committed to comply with the Privacy Shield Principles as set forth by the U.S. Department of Commerce and European Commission regarding the collection, use and retention of PII from EU member countries.

EvaluatePharma USA, Inc., our U.S. office, has certified that it adheres to the Privacy Shield Principles of notice, choice, accountability for onward transfer, security, data integrity and purpose limitation, access, recourse, enforcement and liability. We are subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the Federal Trade Commission. To learn more about the Privacy Shield Principles, and to view our certification, please visit www.privacyshield.gov.

Your Choice

Any employee who provides PII to us shall be notified in detail how their PII will be used at the time of collection.

Evaluate does not sell, trade or rent your PII to others. We will not disclose your PII unless we are under a duty to disclose or share your PII in order to comply with any legal obligation, including cooperation with an investigation carried out by anybody investigating criminal or fraudulent behavior.

Security

Evaluate uses reasonable administrative, technical and operational security measures to safeguard PII in its possession against loss, theft and unauthorized use, disclosure or modification.
