BioPharma Resources distributes surveys and clinical trial feasibilities on behalf of our sponsor clients. If the information you provided us with when you registered matches the profile our clients specify, we will send you an invitation to participate. Because we only hold general information about you and your research site, the additional questions contained in the survey or feasibility allow the sponsor to decide if your site is qualified for potential inclusion in a clinical study. Any information provided by you is given on a voluntary basis. Non-participation will not prevent your use of our web site in any way. The responses you provide will be given to the sponsor organization that initiated the survey. Responding to the questionnaire does not automatically grant you participation in the trial; it is merely a way of expressing your interest and providing additional information for sponsors to evaluate your qualifications.
BioPharma Resources does not sell, rent or lease its customer lists to third parties except as indicated above. BioPharma Resources may, from time to time, contact you on behalf of external business partners about a particular offering that may be of interest to you.
