Last Updated March 2024.
 

Purpose of Global Privacy Notice

Collectively, we refer to the Site, Social Media Pages, emails, and offline business interactions as the “Services.”

IF YOU DO NOT AGREE WITH ANY PART OF THIS PRIVACY NOTICE OR OUR TERMS OF USE, PLEASE DO NOT USE OUR WEBSITE AND DO NOT PROVIDE US WITH YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION.

 

Personal and Other Information We Collect and How We Collect It

Personal Information

As used in this Privacy Notice, “Personal Information” means any information that can be used to identify you as an individual or is reasonably linkable, directly or indirectly, to a specific natural person. The Services collect the following kinds of Personal Information: name, address, telephone number, email address, other contact information, resume and cv information provided in a job application, and IP address.

We need to collect Personal Information in order to provide the requested Services to you.  If you do not provide the information requested, we may not be able to provide the Services.  If you disclose any Personal Information relating to other people to us or to our service providers in connection with the Services, you represent that you have the authority to do so and to permit us to use the information in accordance with this Privacy Notice.

 

We and our service providers collect Personal Information in a variety of ways, including through the services generally; through the job application process; and from other sources.

 

Through the Services: We collect Personal Information through the Services, for example, when you register for resources, attend one of our online events, or sign up for a newsletter.

 

Job Opportunities: If you apply for jobs through the Site, your application and any additional information that you provide may be used to assess your skills and interests in relation to career opportunities at Peer, and for reporting purposes that may be required by country-specific laws.  We may also use your information to communicate with you and to inform you of career opportunities.

Other Sources: We receive your Personal Information from other sources, such as publicly available databases or joint marketing partners, when they share the information with us.

Other Information

“Other Information” refers to any information that does not reveal your specific identify or does not directly relate to an identifiable individual, and includes information such as the type of Internet browser and operating system used; domain name of the website from which you came; number of visits; average time spent on the site; and pages viewed. We may use Other Information, for example, to monitor the relevance of the Site and improve its performance or content.

 

We may use and disclose Other Information for any purpose, except where we are required to do otherwise under applicable law. If we are required to treat Other Information as Personal Information under applicable law, we may use and disclose it for the purposes for which we use and disclose Personal Information as detailed in this Privacy Notice.  In some instances, we may combine Other Information with Personal Information.  If we do, we will treat the combined information as Personal Information as long as it is combined. 

 

We may collect Other Information in a variety of ways, including from your browser or device; cookies; clear gifs/ web beacons; analytics; software development kits (“SDKs”) and mobile advertising IDs; third-party plugins; third-party online tracking; Adobe Flash technology; physical location.

From Your Browser or Device:  Certain information is collected by most browsers or automatically through your device, such as your Media Access Control (MAC) address, computer type (Windows or Mac), screen resolution, operating system name and version, device manufacturer and model, language, Internet browser type and version and the name and version of the Services you are using.  We use this information to ensure that the Services function properly.

Cookies (Information Stored Automatically on Your Computer):  We use cookies on the Site.  Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer by your web browser.  A cookie allows the Site to recognize whether you have visited before and may store user preferences and other information.  For example, cookies can be used to collect or store information about your use of the Site during your current session and over time (including the pages you view and the files you download), your computer’s operating system and browser type, your Internet service provider, your domain name and IP address, your general geographic location, the website that you visited before the Site, and the link you used to leave the Site.  If you are concerned about having cookies on your computer, you can set your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being set, allowing you to decide whether to accept it.  You can also delete cookies from your computer.  However, if you choose to block or delete cookies, certain features of the Site may not operate correctly.

Clear Gifs:  We may employ a software technology called clear gifs (also known as web beacons, web bugs, or pixel tags) along with other technologies such as e-tags and JavaScript that help us better manage content on our site by informing us what content is effective.  Clear gifs are tiny graphics with a unique identifier, similar in function to cookies that are used to track the online movements of web users.  In contrast to cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard drive, clear gifs, which are about the size of a period, are embedded invisibly on web pages.  We do not tie the information gathered by clear gifs, e-tags, or JavaScript to our users’ Personal Information.  

 

Analytics:  We partner with certain third parties to obtain the information discussed above and to engage in analysis, auditing, research, and reporting.  These third parties may use web logs or web beacons, and they may set and access cookies on your computer or other device.  In particular, the Site uses Google Analytics to help collect and analyze certain information for the purposes discussed above.  You may opt out of the use of cookies by Google Analytics here.

SDKs and Mobile Advertising IDs:  Our Services may include third-party SDKs that allow us and our service providers to collect information about your activity.  In addition, some mobile devices come with a resettable advertising ID (such as Apple’s IDFA and Google’s Advertising ID) that, like cookies and pixel tags, allow us and our service providers to identify your mobile device over time for advertising purposes.

Third-Party Plugins:  The Site may include plugins from other companies, including social media companies (e.g., the Facebook “Like” button).  These plugins may collect information, such as information about the pages you visit, and share it with the company that created the plugin even if you do not click on the plugin.  These third-party plugins are governed by the privacy policies and terms of the companies that created them.

 

Third-Party Online Tracking:  We also may partner with certain third parties to collect, analyze, and use some of the information described in this section. For example, we may allow third parties to set cookies or use web beacons on the Site or in email communications from us.  This information may be used for a variety of purposes, including online website analytics and interest-based advertising. 

Chat Box:  Our Services may include a Chat Box to facilitate our communication with you. When you interact with our Chat, Peer may record and use your communications and the information you provide to assist you during the Chat and to improve our clinical trial offerings. If you do not consent, please do not use the Chat feature.

Aggregated and Deidentified Information

From time to time, we may also collect and share aggregated or deidentified information about users of the Services.  Such aggregated or deidentified information will not identify you personally.

Consistent with the requirements of the US Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act, if we learn that we have received information directly from a child under age 13 without his or her parent’s or legal guardian’s verified consent, we will use that information only to respond directly to that child (or his or her parent or legal guardian) to inform the child that he or she cannot use the Services. Subsequently, we will make commercially reasonable efforts to delete such information.
