This may include (but is not limited to) the following: the Internet Protocol (“IP”) address of the computer you are using, the name and location of your internet service provider, the type and version of your browser, the length of time that you stay on the site, your user session id, your user preferences, search queries, your click-stream data, the location that referred you to the site and the average number of pages viewed. If you visit another website prior to browsing Mednet’s site, that website might place information within a universal resource locator (URL), such as search queries, which may be logged by us.

Please note that recording and collecting the above information does not provide us with personally identifiable information, but rather non-identifiable information. We use this non-identifiable information to monitor the usage of our sites, personalize your experience with our sites, and create marketing insights that are used to help improve our site, online service, and related technologies. The above information will be retained for the least amount of time necessary to fulfill Mednet’s marketing and service analytic objectives.

The most common mechanisms for collecting this type of information include cookies, service analytics, and pixel tags or clear Graphics Interchange Format files (“GIFs”).

  • Cookies: Cookies are small files, often including unique identifiers that web servers send to browsers. These cookies can be sent back to the server each time your browser requests a new page. It is a way for a website to remember your device, your preferences, and your online habits and behaviors. Browsers are typically set to create cookies automatically. You can choose to have your browser notify you when cookies are being written to your computer or accessed, or you can disable cookies entirely. If you disable cookies some features and services on the sites may not function properly.
  • Service Analytics: We may utilize third-party service providers to help us better understand how you use our sites, to receive general website traffic statistics, and to use basic analytical tools for search engine optimization (SEO) and marketing purposes. The service provider may place cookies on your computer to collect information. The information that is collected will tell us things like which search engine referred you to the site, how you navigated around the site, and what content you viewed. The third-party service provider(s) will be restricted from using your information to perform services for us, securely and in confidence, except they may be permitted to use the information on an aggregate, non-personally identifiable basis.
  • Pixel tags or clear GIFs: To help us understand the effectiveness of certain types of communication, we may use “message format” and “message open” sensing technologies that use pixel tags or clear GIFs (which are also called web beacons). These technologies allow us to identify the type of format communication your email program accepts and to determine if communication from Mednet has been received or opened.

When you access Mednet’s corporate site for the first time, we provide a banner alerting you of the automatic data collection and the use of cookies and offer you an option to either accept, decline, or manage your preferences.

  • Information Technology (“IT”)

We may collect and use information to protect you and Mednet from IT security threats and to secure the information that we hold from unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. This includes information from our IT access authorization systems, such as log-in information. The security solutions we use to protect your information, our infrastructure, and our networks may collect information such as IP addresses and log files. This collection is necessary for the functionality and utility of security programs to enable the investigation of any potential security incidents and generate insights on security threats. We may use specialized tooling and other technical means to collect information at access points to, and in, IT systems and networks to detect unauthorized access, viruses, and indications of malicious activities. The information we collect may be used to conduct investigations when unauthorized access, malware or malicious activities are suspected, and to remove or isolate malicious code or content. This information will be retained for the least amount of time necessary to investigate, identify, resolve, and/or dismiss potential security threats.

Sharing of Information

To achieve the above data collection and processing purposes, Mednet may use third-party suppliers or providers to assist in developing the service and/or to provide technical or operational support. Such third parties may include (but is not limited to) provider software tools and services (such as analytics platforms, software development ticket tracking systems, customer resource management tools, quality management systems, human resource management systems, etc.) and information technology services such as data hosting, data transmission, and data storage. Mednet enters into supplier or provider agreements that restrict access, use, and disclosure of personal data or Mednet purchases the software licensing and is responsible for the maintenance, management, and storage of the tool ensuring no supplier or provider access. Mednet may be liable if third-party suppliers or providers handle personal data in a manner inconsistent with this privacy policy or inconsistent with the supplier or provider agreements that are in place with Mednet, unless Mednet can prove that it is not responsible for the event(s) giving rise to the damage(s). Client owned and defined personal data from the iMednet service that may be transferred to these suppliers or providers would be identified and covered by agreements between Mednet’s client(s) and Mednet.

Personal data is not disclosed to a third party without your consent however, Mednet is subject to the investigatory and enforcement powers of the United States (“U.S.”) Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and other authorized U.S. statutory bodies. Mednet may be required to disclose personal information in response to lawful respects by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. In certain circumstances it may be necessary to disclose your personal data when required in response to subpoenas, warrants, or court orders, in connection with any legal or regulatory process, or to comply with relevant laws. If the compelled disclosure request is related to the service data (client data), Mednet will notify our applicable client of any such requests unless prohibited by law. We may share your personal data as necessary to establish or exercise our rights to defend against a legal claim; to investigate, prevent, or act regarding possible illegal activities; to protect your safety or the safety of others; or to respond to a government request. Lastly, if we engage in a merger, acquisition, or sale of all or a portion of our assets, you will be notified of any change in ownership or use of your personal data, as well as any choices you may have regarding your personal data.

We do not sell or otherwise disclose your personal data except as described in this privacy policy, in a notice provided to individuals at the time of collection, or as individuals explicitly consent.

Security of Information

To protect your information from unauthorized access, use, disclosure, and to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of information, Mednet implements various supplementary measures and additional safeguards. These safeguards include (but are not limited to) the following: physical and logical access controls, data design and input controls, data storage and transfer controls, data availability and recovery controls, data monitoring and detection controls, and supplier qualification controls.

  • Access Controls

Physical access controls to buildings, office suites, and third-party data centers are in place. These physical controls include (but are not limited to) the following: electronic key card access for appropriate and applicable personnel, the presence of security guards, automatic and manual arming of security systems, and audit trail reports logging personnel access and traffic. Logical access controls to the service and other organizational systems are enforced through various tools and applications such as site-user management and role-based security management tools which ensure that only the appropriate personnel with valid authentication credentials can access the suitable layer or level of data with the concept of least privilege applied. Mednet also ensures authentication credential logic such as username and password complexity, forced password changes, failed attempt lockouts, and inactivity lockouts. Lastly, the service and other organizational systems have audit trails that monitor system access traffic.

  • Design and Input Controls

Design controls guarantee that changes to the service or other organizational systems are made in a controlled manner following a change control lifecycle process. Mednet has policies and procedures in place that require the service and other organizational system changes to be documented, tracked, assessed, developed, tested, reviewed, and approved prior to implementation. In addition, the service provides tools and applications for clients to configure their own study. Clients configuring their own studies are responsible for documenting, tracking, assessing, testing, and implementing their study specific design and configuration changes following their organizational policies and procedures. Input controls ensure that data access, input, modification, and deletion requests are only allowed based on the permission setting of the application. Mednet also confirms that data interactions are tracked and recorded by various audit trail reports capturing the activity of users.

  • Storage and Transfer Controls

We store and process data with a third-party data center (cloud-based services). Our data center resources are spread over geographically isolated areas called regions. Each region is composed of multiple isolated availability zones. Each availability zone is a fully isolated partition of the regional infrastructure eliminating the availability zone as a single point of failure. Data is stored within storage volumes that are fully encrypted using AES-256 algorithm at rest and Secure Socker Layer (“SSL”) 2048-bit encryption when in transit. Mednet utilizes transport layer security (“TLS”) encryption on all data transmissions. Mednet enforces end-to-end encryption transmittal using public/private key, SSL, SFTP, HTTPS for websites and all external data transfers. In addition to the above, Mednet’s internal network is only accessible through a virtual private network (VPN). Mednet also ensures TLS 1.2 encryption of all communications. Mednet’s clients who export or download their permissible data from the iMednet service are responsible for the storage and transfer of data following their organizational security guidances, policies, and procedures.

  • Availability and Recovery Controls

Mednet’s clients depend on reliable access to the service. Mednet has specific quality objectives in place that identify uptime service level objectives. These objectives are routinely measured and documented. Mednet ensures availability by having multiple storage redundancies in place. Mednet preserves system availability by continuously monitoring system uptime and downtime detection reports and notifications, conducting routine backups, performing system recovery practices, and managing and maintaining business continuity guidances.

  • Monitoring, Detection, and Prevention Controls

Mednet uses monitoring tools to examine the health, performance, vulnerability, exposure, and system uptime of the service and other organizational systems and the supporting infrastructure. Mednet’s monitoring and detection activities may include (but is not limited to) the following: intrusion detection systems that monitor networks and systems for any malicious activity with alerts and notifications, system uptime monitoring reports with alerts and notifications, hardware firewalls, web-application firewalls, software firewalls, virus and malware scanning, routine code scanning on Mednet developed service code, and we utilize a third-party specialist to perform yearly vulnerability and penetration testing on the iMednet service as well as on Mednet’s internal network.

  • Supplier Qualification Controls

We have procedures in place to evaluate, classify, qualify, and re-qualify suppliers. We use third-party cloud-based services and other suppliers to assist with our business operations or provide additional services to our clients. We require that these suppliers enter into agreements as appropriate based on the type of service they provide and the type of information they have access to.

Although Mednet strives to protect your information by having the above controls in place, there are always risks involved with electronically collecting, storing, and transferring information. Because of this, Mednet cannot guarantee that a third-party will not gain access to information provided to or collected and processed though the corporate site, the iMednet service, and other organizational systems. Mednet has supplementary measures and additional safeguards in place to help mitigate such risks, but it is also important for you to exercise caution and help prevent unauthorized use and access to your information by following your organizational guidances, policies, and procedures and ensuring confidentiality of your authentication credentials used to access the service provided by Mednet.
