The Personal Information We Collect
CIAS does not collect any personally identifiable information (“PII”) about you unless you voluntarily provide it to us. This PII information may include your name, cell phone number, and email address, as well as information about you, your health, your feelings, your safety, and your health habits.
Please note by using CIAS you are agreeing to the data practices described in this Policy.
Automatically Collected Information
Information about your computer or mobile device, and also about how you use this program, may be automatically collected. This might include your IP address or the type of browser you are using, the specific screens you visit while using this program, and how long you spend using the program. It is important to note that this information reveals nothing personal about you and is reported only in aggregate (for all users as a group).
Our Use and Sharing of Your PII
CIAS will not give, rent, or sell your PII. We will not share your PII outside CIAS, with one exception: we may share your PII with your healthcare providers if you give us permission to do that. Note that the researchers, healthcare professionals, or service providers who are asking you to use CIAS may have a separate policy for how they use any personal information that you enter into CIAS.
We use the information collected automatically in a variety of ways, such as to analyze site traffic (such as aggregated information on the pages visited by our users), which allows us to improve the design and content of this program.
CIAS cannot guarantee the protection of the information that researchers send to us by means of unencrypted email, or that may be accessible by others while in transit.
Links to Third-Party Sites
CIAS may link to or contain links to other third party websites that we do not control or maintain. We are not responsible for the privacy practices employed by any third party website.

Our Commitment to Security
The researcher-facing side of CIAS has implemented security measures we consider reasonable and appropriate to protect against the loss, misuse and alteration of the information under our control. However, we cannot and do not guarantee or warrant the security of any information you disclose or transmit to us online and we are not responsible for the theft, destruction, or inadvertent disclosure of your personally identifiable information.
The researcher-facing side of CIAS does not knowingly collect PII information from children.
