Privacy Policy

Introduction.

Welcome to our Privacy Statement. The Bionical Emas Group respects your privacy and is committed to protecting your Personal Data. Please note that in this Privacy Statement, Personal Data means any information (direct or indirect) that relates to an individual from which that individual can be identified, and which is processed by or on behalf of a Bionical Emas Group company.

This Privacy Statement explains how the Bionical Emas Group collects, uses and looks after your Personal Data in connection with the Group’s services, apps and websites (collectively, referred to in this Statement as our Data Activities), both online and offline. It also sets out your privacy rights.

Who are we?

The Bionical Emas Group comprises Bionical Limited (a UK company) and its subsidiaries, which include but are not limited to, Bionical Emas, Inc. (US company), Bionical Emas Limited (Irish company) and Emas Pharma Limited (UK company, which manages clinical trials). All Bionical Emas companies use the Bionical Emas trade name. Together, the companies comprising the Bionical Emas Group are referred to in this Privacy Statement as Bionical Emas.

What do we do?

Bionical Emas is a CRO (Clinical Research Organisation), providing clinical research services to its global pharmaceutical and biotech clients, along with businesses in related fields (Bionical Emas clients being referred to in this Privacy Statement as Clients).

This Privacy Statement relates to all of Bionical Emas’s services (which are referred to in this Privacy Statement as Bionical Emas Services). Bionical Emas Services include but are not limited to:

  • Supply of comparator and related pharmaceutical products to Clients for use in clinical trials (referred to in this Privacy Statement as Clinical Trials Supply or CTS)
  • Conduct/management of clinical trials on behalf of Clients, which includes handling of site requests, data management and Pharmacovigilance (as defined below). These Bionical Emas Services are referred to in this Privacy Statement as Clinical Trial Services
  • Management of early access programs, also known as expanded access programs, or compassionate use programs (together referred to in this Privacy Statement as EAP Services). EAP Services involve the supply of unlicensed medicines to eligible patients, via their healthcare professionals, in circumstances where the patient has exhausted all available licensed treatment options (and in certain other limited situations prior to the pharmaceutical product becoming licensed). It involves supply of the applicable product to the applicable healthcare site, handling of access requests, data management and Pharmacovigilance (as defined below)
  • Pharmacovigilance services, either as part of Clinical Trial Services or EAP Services, or as a standalone service (together referred to in this Privacy Statement as Pharmacovigilance). Pharmacovigilance is the monitoring of Adverse Events relating to use of healthcare treatments, including pharmaceutical products. Adverse Events are defined as unwanted or unexpected reactions experienced by a patient undergoing healthcare treatment. Bionical Emas Services such as Clinical Trial Services or EAP Services generally include managing and reporting of Adverse Events to our Clients, so that our Clients can discharge their Pharmacovigilance obligations. Bionical Emas also provides standalone Pharmacovigilance services for Clients in relation to medicinal products, including for products after the clinical trials stage when the pharmaceutical product is licensed for use in the applicable jurisdiction. This is required because people vary in their biological reactions to medicines. Clinical trials are comprehensive and will detect many potential adverse events. But not all such adverse reactions can be detected during the clinical trial stage, and accordingly, safety of medicines continues to be monitored when the medicine is licensed for use. Pharmacovigilance is important at all of these stages as it allows pharmaceutical companies and regulatory authorities worldwide to fully understand the Adverse Event profile of medicines, and to protect public health and ensure high standards of safety are achieved
  • Real world data studies (referred to in this Privacy Statement as Real World Data Services). Real world data refer to observational data as opposed to data gathered in an experimental setting such as a controlled clinical trial
  • Consulting projects relating to various elements of pharmaceutical product development.
  • Communications with users of our websites or apps: for example, responding to enquiries made via our websites.

Bionical Emas operates globally in this highly-regulated, safety-focused field. As a necessary element of providing the Bionical Emas Services, Bionical Emas carries out Data Activities.

Our Vendors

Bionical Emas engages a number of different types of specialist suppliers to aid it in providing the Bionical Emas Services. Such Bionical Emas suppliers are referred to in this Privacy Statement as Vendors.

Data relationships – controller and processor

In almost all cases where we supply Bionical Emas Services to a Client, the applicable Client is considered to be the ‘controller’ of the Personal Data collected (for the purposes EU and UK data protection law), with Bionical Emas and its Vendors being considered to be ‘processors’ (or ‘sub-processors’) of such Personal Data. However, where Personal Data is collected by Bionical Emas for its own business uses and not on behalf of a Client, Bionical Emas is usually considered to be the ‘controller’ of such Personal Data. This Privacy Statement applies to all Personal Data processed by Bionical Emas, whether Bionical Emas is controller or processor (where those concepts apply).

Unidentified information may be collected using various technologies, such as cookies and web beacons. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your computer’s hard disk by a website. Web beacons (also referred to as GIF files, pixels, or internet tags) help Bionical Emas understand how you navigate around the Bionical Emas websites or apps. As part of your use of such sites, your internet browser automatically transmits to Bionical Emas’s websites some of this information, such as the URL of the website you just visited and the browser version your computer is operating. Passive information collection technologies can make your use of Bionical Emas websites easier by allowing Bionical Emas to provide better Bionical Emas Services, customise Bionical Emas websites based on user preferences, compile statistics, analyse trends, and otherwise administer and improve Bionical Emas’s websites. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings on your browser, though certain features of Bionical Emas’s websites may not work without use of passive information collection technologies. Information collected by these technologies cannot be used to identify you without additional information.

Some of Bionical Emas’s business partners (such as Clients or Vendors with whom Bionical Emas contracts to assist it in carrying out Bionical Emas Services, including website providers), may use their cookies on Bionical Emas websites and apps. Although Bionical Emas may not have direct access to or control over such cookies, this Privacy Statement governs the use of cookies by Bionical Emas and such business partners on Bionical Emas websites and apps. Bionical Emas may also allow social media companies (e.g. Facebook) to put “widgets” on Bionical Emas websites. These third-party tools may also be used to track you across websites. For example, so long as you are logged in to Facebook, every time you land on a webpage that has a Facebook widget, Facebook will know you are on that webpage. Bionical Emas does not control the privacy practices of these third parties.

Some internet browsers allow you to limit or disable the use of tracking technologies that collect unidentified information, such as a Do Not Track (“DNT”) setting.

You should also be aware that our website may include links to third party websites, plug-ins and applications. Clicking on those links or enabling those connections may allow third parties to collect or share Personal Data about you.

Bionical Emas endeavours to obtain assurances from its Vendors that they will safeguard Personal Data consistent with this Privacy Statement. An example of appropriate assurances that may be provided by Vendors includes a contractual obligation that they provide at least the same level of protection as is required by Bionical Emas’s privacy principles set out in this Privacy Statement. Where Bionical Emas becomes aware or suspects that a Vendor is using or disclosing Personal Data in a manner contrary to this Privacy Statement, Bionical Emas will take appropriate steps to prevent or stop the use or disclosure.

If you are an EEA or UK citizen and/or accessing Bionical Emas websites in the EEA or the UK, then this paragraph may apply in addition to the above.
