You agree not to misuse the Site or help anyone else to do so. For example, you agree not even to try to do any of the following in connection with the Site:
Account. When you create an ARCOS account, we collect, and associate with your account, the account registration information you provide, which may include your name, email address, phone number, investigator name, sponsor name, and protocol name.
Services for Clinical Sites. When you login to ARCOS using account credentials for a certain study, then upload images for that study, we store, process, and transmit those image files and the information you provide related to those images within Doheny Eye Institute—for instance, to our Doheny Image Reading Center (DIRC)—and also potentially to the sponsor, CRO or other sponsor delegate for that study. Unless you, your employer, the sponsor, or the sponsor’s CRO has made other arrangements in a contract with DEI, you agree not to upload protected health information, as defined under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996, as amended (HIPAA), or personal data from data subjects, as defined in the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of Europe, or the like (collectively, “PHI”), and DEI disclaims all liability for such PHI.
Services for Sponsors/or Designees. When you login to ARCOS using account credentials for a certain study, you may be able to view or download information or images regarding that study, if you have the required permissions. Your permissions will determine if you have access to view real-time site and patient status information, whether and which reports can be downloaded, what data can be exported, and if images uploaded from clinical sites may be downloaded by you.
Usage. We collect information from and about the devices you use to access ARCOS. This includes, but is not limited to things like IP addresses, the type of browser and device you use, and identifiers associated with your devices. Your devices (depending on their settings) may also transmit location information to ARCOS. We monitor user activity on ARCOS and may collect information about the features you use, the sizes and names of files you upload or access, and any other actions taken while using ARCOS.
Cookies and other technologies. We use technologies like cookies to provide, improve, and protect ARCOS. For example, cookies help us with things like remembering your username for your next visit, understanding how you are interacting with ARCOS, and improving ARCOS based on that information. You can set your browser not to accept cookies, but this may limit your ability to use ARCOS. If our systems receive a DNT:1 signal (i.e., a Do Not Track signal) from your browser, we'll ignore that signal.
Study partners. ARCOS will allow sharing of the files and related information uploaded for a study with DEI and with the sponsor and clinical sites for that study and potentially with the sponsor’s CRO or delegates for that study.
Enforcement. We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is reasonably necessary to (a) comply with the law; (b) protect any person from death or serious bodily injury; (c) prevent fraud or abuse of ARCOS or our users; or (d) protect DEI’s property rights.
Security. We are dedicated to keeping your information and study files and information secure and testing for vulnerabilities. While no system is impenetrable, we take reasonable measure to help protect all information and files from loss, theft, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, and destruction. For instance, data is encrypted while it is being transmitted, and our file servers are kept in a secured environment with restricted access. You may access your ARCOS account only through the use of an individual user ID and password. To protect the confidentiality of your files and information, you must keep your password confidential and not disclose it to any other individual. You agree to advise us immediately if you believe your password has been misused. In addition, you agree to always logout and close your browser when you finish your ARCOS session.
Retention. We'll retain information and files uploaded to ARCOS for as long as we need for a given study. If an account is deactivated, any files and related information uploaded from that account will not be deleted. And please note: We may retain user information, files, and related information uploaded to ARCOS as necessary to comply with our contractual or other legal obligations, resolve disputes, or enforce our agreements.
