This Policy applies to any personally identifiable information about you (Personal Information) that you may provide to HeroLinx when using any of our websites or sending us information by email.
Information Collected and How We Use It
At various locations on our website, and during our business practice, we ask you for information, which will allow us to provide you (whether you are a patient, caregiver or clinician) with information that is targeted specifically to you. If you would like to share information related to a clinical trial or if you would like to be considered for enrollment in a clinical trial, this information allows us to contact you regarding particular studies for which you may be eligible.
We will retain your information for as long as your account is active or as needed to provide you services. Please note that we may retain and use your information as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, when we believe that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights and/or comply with a judicial proceeding, court order or legal process served on our Web Site, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.
HeroLinx is a membership-only network. When you sign up for a HeroLinx account or other HeroLinx service or promotion that requires registration, we ask you for personal information (such as your name, email address, and account password). HeroLinx may combine information obtained about you from various sources or inputs. For certain services, we may give you the opportunity to opt out of combining such information. We may process personal information to provide our own services. In some cases, we may process personal information on behalf of and according to the instructions of a third party, such as our advertising partners. If you decline to provide information, we may not be able to provide certain services to you.
Purposes: HeroLinx may use information you provide for purposes of:
- Providing our products, services and advertising to users, including the display of customized content and advertising;
- Analysis in order to maintain, protect and improve our services;
- Ensuring the technical functioning of our network; and
- Developing new services
Usage Information: We may record information about your usage, such as when you use HeroLinx website features, what you use and the contacts you communicate with, as well as information you display, click on or share.

Affiliated sites: We offer some of our services in connection with other web sites. Personal information that you provide to those sites may be sent to HeroLinx in order to deliver the service. We process such information in accordance with this Policy. The affiliated sites may have different privacy practices and we encourage you to read their privacy policies.
Links: HeroLinx may present links in a format that enables us to keep track of whether these links have been followed. We use this information to improve the quality of our services, your activity and advertising.
Changes: If we propose to use personal information for any purposes other than those described in this Policy and/or in the specific service notices, we will offer you an effective way to opt out of the use of personal information for those other purposes.
We maintain information security safeguards to protect your Personal Information. We protect any Personal Information you provide using encryption, and utilize firewalls to protect our computer network from hackers. We take reasonable steps designed to prevent unauthorized access, use and alteration of Personal Information, but cannot guarantee the security of such information.
Please note that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure. Therefore, we cannot guarantee its absolute security.
