Prudentia acts as an agent, also known as a data processor, for the Personal Data we process for our clients when providing our Services. This means that Prudentia’s clients determine the type of Personal Data they provide for Prudentia to process on their behalf. Prudentia typically has no direct relationship with the individuals whose Personal Data it receives from its clients.
We receive your Personal Data from our clients in the course of providing the Services or, in certain cases, directly from you.
Within the scope of this Policy, we process Personal Data based on the instructions of our clients.
Prudentia typically processes the following types of Personal Data:
We process Personal Data for the purposes of enabling our clients to use the Services, which typically entail analyzing submitted Personal Data, storing records of tests performed upon such data, as well as providing our Pharmacovigilance consulting services, coding services, and customer support services.
We retain Personal Data for as long as instructed by the respective client (who typically acts as a data controller). We delete the Personal Data submitted to us by our clients within six months of the termination of the applicable service agreement with Prudentia, unless otherwise instructed by our client within the service agreement, or in case applicable law requires or allows for a different retention period.
We share Personal Data with our service providers, who process Personal Data on behalf of Prudentia, and who agree to use the Personal Data only to assist us in providing our Services or as required by law. Our service providers include those providing the following services:
Our service providers may be located within or outside of the United States and we will require that those third parties maintain at least the same level of privacy and security that we maintain for such Personal Data. Prudentia remains liable for the protection of your Personal Data within the scope of our Privacy Shield certification that we transfer to our service providers, except to the extent that we are not responsible for the event giving rise to any unauthorized or improper processing.
We may disclose Personal Data (i) to the extent required by law or if we have a good-faith belief that such disclosure is necessary in order to comply with official investigations or legal proceedings initiated by governmental and/or law enforcement officials, or private parties, including but not limited to: in response to subpoenas, search warrants, or court orders, or (ii) if we sell or transfer all or a portion of our company’s business interests, assets, or both, or in connection with a corporate merger, consolidation, restructuring, or other company change, (iii) to our subsidiaries or affiliates only if necessary for business and operational purposes as described in the section above, or (iv) to protect an individual’s vital interests. We also use and may otherwise process aggregated, anonymous data, which does not include any Personal Data, about individuals whose Personal Data we process in connection with providing our Services, as a group, for any legal business purpose, such as analyzing usage trends and seeking compatible business opportunities. If we must disclose your Personal Data in order to comply with official investigations or legal proceedings initiated by governmental and/or law enforcement officials, we may not be able to ensure that such recipients of your Personal Data will maintain the privacy or security of your Personal Data.
Prudentia has implemented and will maintain technical, administrative, and physical measures that are reasonably designed according to industry standards to help protect Personal Data from unauthorized processing, such as unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. However, please note that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
If we store Personal Data about you, you may have a right to request access to, and the opportunity to update, correct, or delete, such Personal Data. You may also have the right to opt out of having your Personal Data shared with third parties and to revoke your consent that you have previously provided for your Personal Data to be shared with third parties, except as required by law. You also have the right to opt out if your Personal Data is used for any purpose that is materially different from, but nevertheless compatible with the purpose(s) for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by you. Requests should be sent directly to the Prudentia client who provided your Personal Data to Prudentia. Prudentia has limited rights to access Personal Data our clients submit to us. Therefore, if you contact us with such a request, please provide the name of the Prudentia client who submitted your Personal Data to us. We will forward your request to that client and provide any needed assistance as they respond to your request.
