The use of information collected through our service shall be limited to the purpose of providing the service for which the customer or partner has engaged Clinithink.

We may transfer personal information to companies that help us provide our service. Transfers to subsequent third parties are covered by the service agreements with our customers and partners.
Clinithink acknowledges that you have the right to access your personal information. An individual who seeks access to correct, amend, or delete inaccurate data should initially direct their query to Clinithink’s customer or partner (the data controller).

Please contact us using the details at the end of this policy. If requested to remove data we will respond within a reasonable timeframe.
