ADX's privacy policy

as read below, outlines the core components of our data handling practices.

  1. We collect information when you register an account, self-report information through surveys, forms, features or applications, use our Services, use social media connections and features, refer your contacts to us, share information through various interactions with us and our partners, and via cookies and similar tracking technologies.
  2. We use information in general (i) to provide, analyze and improve our Services, (ii) as we reasonably believe is permitted by laws and regulations, including for marketing and advertising purposes, (iii) to protect the security and safety of our company, employees, and customers as we reasonably believe is permitted by laws and regulations, (iv) to comply with laws and regulations we are subject to, and (v) when you consent, for research purposes, the results of which could be used to further develop our Services.

Consent to the use of sensitive information

By agreeing to our Privacy Statement and Terms of Service, you consent to sensitive information, such as information about your healthcare and treatment preferences, and self-reported information such as age, income and sexual orientation (where you provide it) being used by us to:

  1. analyze and provide you with our Services;
  2. analyze and provide you with information about each of our Services;
  3. determine whether you would be suitable to take part in surveys, polls or questionnaires that we are conducting; and
  4. monitor and improve existing products or services that we offer or to develop new products and services.

We will not use your sensitive information without your consent unless: (i) the information has been anonymized or aggregated so that you cannot reasonably be identified as an individual; or (ii) a legal obligation requires us to use it in some way e.g. a court order requires us to disclose the information.

Consent to the transfer of your personal information

  1. By agreeing to our Privacy Statement and Terms of Service, you consent to the storing and processing of your personal information, including sensitive information, in the USA and in Canada. We use a range of measures to safeguard information but these countries may have laws that are different from those of your country of residence. You also consent to your personal information, including sensitive information, being transferred in the event of a business transition such as a merger, acquisition by another company, or other transaction or proceeding. In such a case, your information would be used as set out in any pre-existing Privacy Policy.
  2. We will not sell, lease, rent, or otherwise make available your individual-level information (i.e., information about a single individual's healthcare preferences, diseases or illnesses or other traits/characteristics) to any third-party or to a third-party for research purposes without your explicit consent.
  3. As an integral part of the Decision Profile Service, we enable you to share your sensitive information with your designated surrogate decision-makers and other designated family members or third-parties. By using the Decision Profile Service and designating which people are allowed to access your sensitive information, you are deemed to consent to such disclosure. You may withdraw this consent at any time by logging into the Decision Profile Service and changing the people allowed to see your information. However, if someone has viewed your information prior to such a change, they may have retained an earlier version of your information; if so, this version will still be in their possession, and ADX has no ability to recover or erase such a copy.
  4. You may independently decide to disclose your healthcare preferences to friends and/or family members, doctors, health care professionals, or other individuals outside our Services, including through third-party services such as social networks and third-party apps that connect to our website and mobile apps through our application programming interface ("API"); always review the privacy policies of third-party apps and services before sharing your information.
  5. We may share anonymized and aggregate information with third-parties; anonymized and aggregate information is any information that has been stripped of your name and contact information and aggregated with information of others or anonymized so that you cannot reasonably be identified as an individual.
