For example, if you indicated that you have a certain disease or condition, when that information is combined with your name, it becomes Personal Health Information. Examples of Personally Identifiable Information include your name, home address, telephone number, email address, date of birth, and any other information that may be used to identify you.
While you may view some of our study websites or marketing campaign websites without providing Personally Identifiable Information, this information will be required to be considered for participation in a research study and/or marketing campaign.

In the event that we are legally compelled to disclose your Personally Identifiable Information or Personal Health Information to a third party, we will attempt to notify you, unless doing so would violate the law or be inconsistent with our legal obligations.
