We collect personal information you provide to us when you register at one of our sites (e.g., name, date of birth, email address, phone number and address). • Further Information. At various locations on our site, we may ask you for additional information so that we can provide you with additional services (e.g., notification about new clinical trials, appointments, related information). • Newsletters. We may occasionally offer newsletters that are focused on specific medical conditions that you might want to receive. If you request to receive a newsletter, we will use your contact information to deliver the related material you request. • Enrollment Forms.
